Most of us grow up believing that the rich and successful people have a secret formula that gives them an edge we should have. A secret "they" should know that we do not. Authors and sellers make small fortunes each year selling these "secrets" of success. Here's the truth: there is no secret to success.
Why do people say there is a secret to success?
Marketers like to refer to information about the success as a secret because it captures people's attention. Everybody wants the secret, whatever it is. And many people want to know the secret of success.
