Searching for Success Stories

I need your help. I’m looking for success stories. You see, it’s my theory that success is contagious. If you read about, hear about, talk to, rub shoulders with, or study successful people, you’re sure to gain some extra insight or inspiration you even closer to your own version of success.

What kind of success am I looking for?

Big success is built on a series of little successes! I want to give people an opportunity to shine at any level of success.

If you’ve been following this blog for any length of time you’ve probably read about “Gary” and his success. That kind of success stirs up our souls and makes us believe we can achieve anything we want. But there are plenty of other ways to succeed: I made my first $1,000 online! I found enough courage to get on stage and dance! I ran to the top of the steps just like Rocky!

Here’s my other motivation

Years ago I worked on a county newspaper as a staff writer. My favorite part of the job was the chance to do interviews for the People Pages. Interesting jobs, amazing hobbies, contests won, community service recognized…I loved it! Loved talking to the people, loved finding about their lives and what they loved, loved the energy they glowed with as they talked about what they loved. Wow! Lot of love in there. But newspaper work doesn’t pay all that well. Not enough to support a growing family, so I moved on to other things.

I still miss it! And want to recapture the fun of talking to people about what inspires them to achieve!

Again, I need your help. Please, recommend yourself, your friends, or even someone you’ve only heard about for an interview here on my blog. Everyone knows someone who is doing something interesting! Thank you so much!

  3. Wonderful Idea Teresa!

    Success IS contagious! It is so important to surround ourselves with successful people. What a great way to do that! I personally have had a lot of success blogging on-line. A friend of mine who is growing very successfully(he’s a part of our tribe) is Justin Glover http://justinglover.com. He’d be an awesome person to get a hold of. :)

    I’m looking forward to all of your success stories!

  5. Hi Teresa,

    I’d be up for an interview definitely. I’ve been full time online for 5+ years now and have seen a lot of things. Drop me an email or pop on over to FB and add me as a friend. We can schedule a time to talk.

    Look forward to it!

  7. Hi Teresa! That’s a great idea.

    When you hear success stories it subconsciously gives you permission to do the same.

    I would love to do an interview with you and share with you some observations and my own story of overcoming adversity proving everything truly happens for a reason.

  8. Hey Teresa,

    This is a fantastic idea. I look forward to reading and hearing about many peoples inspiring and encouraging stories of success. I believe that we all have something in us to share with others that will add value to their lives. Even for some their success might be rapped up in something they think is a failure. I would be happy to share my stories and experiences with everyone.

    Thanks for putting this out there.

    Make it a great day!
    God Bless,
    -ed

    Thanks, Edward! I agree that sometimes what looks like a failure is a valuable lesson worth sharing!

  9. Teresa, I would like to throw my hat in the ring and be considered for an interview. I look forward to the other success stories that people will share!

    Looking forward to it, Lori! I’m so excited about how long the list is getting!

  10. Teresa, this is a great idea. One — SHORT — success story a day can keep us motivated and the fires of motivation burning deep in any entrepreneur.

    Like Lori, I too would like to offer myself as an interviewee. However, I’d like to wait a while till I’ve had some success on line. What I’d like to share is the contrast between old and new (traditional ways of marketing versus the Internet) and the fact that it is never too late to make a MAJOR change in ones career.

    In the meantime, if I may make a suggestion? Try contacting Jonathan Budd and see if he’d be open to your interviewing him. He has recently posted an incredible blog entry that is worth reading and watching. This is someone who should be recognized for the things he values most in his YOUNG life.

    Here’s the link if you haven’t seen the post (believe it was yesterday) . . .

    Thanks for the offer and I hope to be able to share an interesting story in the near future.

    Thanks, Joe! I look forward to your interview. You have two great topics in mind! And thanks for the link to Jonathan’s post. I’ll contact him.

  11. Awesome idea Teresa i cant wait to start hearing these success stories that will be coming. Success stories are definitely contagious and i cant wait to catch the success bug.

    Thanks, Evin! What about an interview with you? Your posts are always inspiring. I’m sure you have experiences with success that will be valuable to share with us.

  12. Teresa.. God love you for coming up with this idea. it reminds me of The God News Channel which is ONLY inspiring news stories! After all we really need to pay attention to our positive vibration and our collective as well as personal thought forms! If thoughts are things.. which they ARE, then why would we want to watch mainstream media coverage of al the depressing stuff that they like to feature??

    I am not sure if I could say my life is a success unless you mean by that that I am regularly happy, excited, enthusiastic, optimistic and creative? For me, that’s what marks a successful life well lived! (See my latest blog post below!!)

    If that is something you think would make a good story then I’d LOVE to share my wisdom and insights on that so count me amongst your many volunteers too!

    Like everyone I’ve had my fair share of obstacles and barriers to overcome, not least of which was breaking free of societal constraints, of what other people thought I should do and who they thought I should be to satisfy THEIR comfort zones.. probably the hardest thing most human beings get to do.. if ever. I guess in that field I am very successful and love the person I have become through letting myself be ME!! Finally… LOL…

    Thanks so much for coming up with this idea… you’re onto a winner!

    Blessings and love XXX

    Thank you so much, Sandhan! What a compliment! You are now on the interview list – you kind of success is the most important in my mind! Becoming who you really are, overcoming life’s challenges – that’s what it’s all about! So many people think of money as the only measure of success – we are discounting an important part of our personal growth if that’s the way we look at things.

  13. I suggest speaking with Leslie Eisener @ http://ignitepotentials.com. She has a great success story as do her two partners in business. If you need an intro somehow tell me what you want I and I will make it happen.

  14. Teresa,

    Great post, I truly believe that success is a state of mind. Someone making a 1,000 dollars online or someone making there first cold call sale. A person needs to see them self as a success to truly be successful. We are all failures if we try to live upto other peoples expectations. Love the post.

    I just came across your blog by “pure accident???”. As I see so many single women struggling with their children,their careers and their lives in general, I would like to share how I successfully raised my 9 children as a single Mom. I would love to help so many women, that perhaps this is one opportunity to do it.
