The First Rule Of Success

Zig Ziglar used to say “You have to be before you can do and do before you can have.” What he meant was that being the best you can be is the first step to true success in life.

And he would often say that gratitude was the foundation of that success.

I could not agree more.

When I am grateful the sun shines a little brighter. My problems seem a little smaller. And I feel a lot better.

I hope you enjoy this short video. Please do leave a comment below

    Charlie,
    What a great video at a wonderful time of the year. Jesus has a birthday coming very soon and this is the Most Important Birthday in my life. Without Jesus helping me out 16 years ago I would probably be an divorced alcoholic today who never would have known Charlie Page. Today I am a Happy Christian who loves my wife more than the day we were married 45 years ago. She is my best friend as well. We have a relationship better than anyone I know. Although I have many health concerns God has been good to me. I’m also so grateful I was born in the greatest country in the world. I’m also grateful for the internet and I pray that 2017 will be my best year ever with my online business and with the courses charliepage.com has. I know I can get where I want to be using these as a guide. Thank you Charlie for you and your staff whom I’m also grateful for. God Bless you all and I pray this 2016 Christmas will be good to you and all your loved ones.

  • Hi Charlie:

    Great video on gratitude. Here are a few of the things I am grateful for…

    My wife of 27 years who has given me unwavering support in my entreprenuerial quest.
    My wonderful three kids who are each on track to pursue their own passion.
    God who has given me so many blessings and ongoing inspiration over the years.
    The great country we live in that gives us endless opportunities to pursue.
    And last but not least… you for all the great guidance you are providing to all of us.

    Thanks,

    Kyle Robinson

    You are the second person to ask me what I am grateful for.
    My list starts as yours does. God is always nr 1. Family and our country USA Children, grandchildren, and all the rest. I have a roof over my head, clothes to wear, I can read and hear and walk. The list goes on and on. I had the privilege of being in the military and I am grateful for that. I have the internet and some cash in the bank. Wow!! I have so much. I was able to eat today what I wanted.
    Am trying to decide what I want to do now that I finally retired mostly. I still have my cdl and a medical card so I can still drive truck but I want to stay home and do something on the internet. Probably affiliate marketing but I am not sure. I haven’t made up my mind but I know it will be something on this massive communication system we all now have.
    Thanks Charlie, I am grateful for you also.
    Love in Christ
    Rose

  • I’m grateful for everything in my life at this moment, I am so graced with an abundance of peace and joy in my life + I and my loved ones are safe and secure!

    It took a couple of decades of hard work, but I’ve been enjoying the fruits of my labour for 10+ years now… and life is good!

    Recently I purchased your Master membership so I can craft my Roadmap for promoting my books and author profile… I look forward to getting your review of my plan soon as its done… so, I’m also grateful that I came across you Charlie, all those years ago.

    Hi Charlie,

    I am grateful for my family and that I have great health.

    I am grateful that I have lots of work at the moment; sometimes it’s frustrating that I’m so busy with my offline business that my online business has to take a step backwards.

    I am grateful that I have had some great mentors, including you, that are moving me along the road to success.

  • Edna Peterson says:

    Thank you Charlie, like you I am also grateful to God, my family and most that you mentioned. You are such an inspiration! God bless :-))

  • jim says:

    Charlie-
    I agree with what you’re saying and I’d like to become a member. Unfortunately, many, many, times over the past few years when I get involved with some online expert/mentor I end up with a massive amount of information and I spin around not knowing what to do. I need a step by step, easy to understand model to follow.

    • Charlie Page says:

      I totally understand. That is why I created my Roadmap training. It helps you create your own step-by-step plan, with my guidance. Plus, I review every plan submitted and provide feedback.

      Master membership includes Roadmap.

      Doing business online is actually easier than people think. But it does take considerable focus and the ability to say no to shiny objects.

  • Cat says:

    Charlie wonderful message and right now am too busy being grateful to bring joy to others, breathing in air, cooking for my kids a cake, the plants that allow me a herbal tea, flour for the meal…. Then there’s my customers and their life’s transformation – wow am I grateful there too. The internet receives tons of gratitude for it allows my asperges syndrome child to meet others from the security of his room and make real close friends that he then goes to visit, allows me to work from home too.
    The list is so long that I need a lifetime to just say thankyou for all those blessings I receive, even on very down days!
    Thanks for the reminder
    Your student

  • Hi Charlie,

    This video is like a breath of fresh air!
    We often get so caught in everyday living we forget to give thanks.
    I have created my list and posted it where I can see it everyday.
    It’s amazing how many things we are grateful for, when we put pen to paper.
    You are on my list, and I know I will be successful with you in my corner.

    Have a great day!

    Hi Charlie,

    I am grateful for you to make the video.

    There are more good things happened in people’s life than what people normally think

    We need more of these messages!

    I thank you again

    • Charlie Page says:

      Thank you Samantha. You are right, the good outweighs the bad. We seem to remember the bad so easily but overlook the many good things in our memories.

  • Gordon Appleby says:

    Wow, what a great list! I noticed everything on it was something that most of us have, but take for granted. They really are blessings, aren’t they? And gratitude really is an inside game, isn’t it? Life doesn’t have to get better for us to be grateful. The opposite is true…it starts with gratitude, as you said so well.

    I’m grateful for protection. I took a serious head-first dive that could have been life-changing in a very negative way last time I was in BCS, but a month later I’m doing fine. Thank God for hard heads!

    And I’m grateful for you, Charlie. You’ve been a friend and an example at so many levels over the years.

  • Ahmed says:

    Hi Charlie,

    Thank you of the video! it inspired me to create my own list and feel great with gratitude of all the blessings I have.
