That only means that successful people operate from different belief system. The initiative, action, is just the results what we see on the surface. The driving force is the burning passion inside, ability to direct his mind and concentrate on the desires and passion his has in life. Successful people do not act from the stand point of fear of not having what they want or feeling of desperation. There’s no such thing as “life” out there, which is something “happening to us” and separate from our inner being, thoughts and emotions. This is old paradigm, false. Our outer physical reality is the reflection of our inner being, consciousness, beliefs, thoughts and emotions, and we are the the ones at the steering-wheel.
