Wherever I go, people ask me, what is Achievement IQ™?

I then explain to them that Achievement IQ™ is a non-numerical measure of how well a person, or an organization does 4 things:

VISION - Do they see details and opportunities that most others do not see?

ATTRACTION - Do they attract opportunities that most others do not?

READINESS - Are they ready to act upon these opportunities even though most others might not?

ACTION - Do they actually act upon these opportunities once they come their way?

The next thing I often hear is that Achievement IQ™ sounds a lot like The Secret, which is often referred to as the Law of Attraction.

My next response is that attraction is only a small part of Achievement IQ™.

Before I go any further, I want to say that I have never read The Secret, nor do I intend to. The ideas behind Achievement IQ™ come from my life experiences and the excellent works of others I have read over the years.

If one wants to be truly successful, one must learn how to incorporate the other 3 elements of Achievement IQ™ into their lives.

They must learn to recognize opportunities when they come their way.

They must train themselves and gather their resources so that they are ready to act upon these opportunities once they do come their way.

Finally, once the opportunities do come their way, they must actually act upon them.

Quite simply, you can attract as many opportunities as you want, but if you don't recognize them; if you aren't ready to act upon them; or if you fail to act upon them, you are not going to be successful.

That's it, in a nutshell. In future articles, I will talk about some of the individual aspects of Vision, Attraction, Readiness and Action.

Remember, Achievement IQ™, It's not a secret anymore™.
