The Three Principles of Success

Simply Genius FireFly

Today, I’m not going to give you a long, protracted newsletter with lots of information, research, pictures, and advice.

Instead, I’m giving you one of the tools from my Art of Disruptivism Workbook. It’s one of the blueprint philosophies that helped Disruptors throughout history achieve their objectives.

It’s uncomplicated and quick to absorb. How’s that for game-changing practices?

Enjoy! And, let me know what you think.

Balance • Simplicity • Prosperity


Life works best when there’s balance. You are more centered, more focused, and more alert. When you’re in balance your views, ideas, and perceptions go from a myopic perspective to an open, unlimited way of seeing the world.

Energy is drained when valuable time is constantly being demanded by outside forces. You cannot successfully replenish when you are never balanced or at rest.

Energy is increased when you are able to recharge. Your creativity and momentum are accelerated and increase exponentially.


Simplicity is the best tool to gauge how easy or difficult your journey can be. When things are simple, they flow, they are effortless, and they are seamless. The less effort and energy expended, the easier the task; mentally, physically, and emotionally. Always seek out the simplest path. It doesn’t have to be a struggle to be rewarding.


Prosperity is the attainment of a desired outcome. Whether it’s mentally, physically, spiritually, socially, or monetarily, your prosperity is the result of forward movement, growth, connection, and intention. It’s a conviction in attitude, direction, and a deep knowing that you’re on the right path.

(Write your answers to the following questions)

Maximizing BALANCE:

  • What changes can I make to reduce my stress level?

  • How can I improve the balance of work, family and self?

  • Am I spending time on the right things? What is really important?

  • Do I have family, self and career in the correct priority?

  • Am I making a conscious choice every day to find balance instead of just squeezing in ME time?


  • Where am I making life the most complicated?

  • Do I constantly second-guess my choices?

  • Am I stressing about the details?

  • Am I afraid to let go and enjoy the process?


  • How can I improve my outcomes?

  • How do I nurture my personal levels of success?

  • How can I expand my personal development: Reading? Praying? Meditating? Journaling?
    Enjoying nature?

  • In what ways can I improve my well-being?

  • Am I satisfied with my values?

  • Do others know what they are?

  • Am I treating money with fear, respect, or awe?

  • What’s the best way to master my relationship with money?

Take some time to reflect on your answers. It may help you to redefine and develop a new perspective, a sound strategy, and a more elegant personal philosophy.

That’s it for today!
