If you every hear yourself thinking things like "I don't know how to be successful", "I don't know how to be happy" "I don't know how to be motivated", or "I don't know how to be positive", these are great realizations.  All of these, and almost anything, can be learned.  These traits may not come "natrually" to you and you can learn them anyway.  Just because you did not grow up in a environment that taught you these things is no reason why you can't learn them now.  It is never too late to learn.

I had the opportunity to visit China when I was 20 years old.  At that time, I only learned how to say 3 things "Hello", "I love you" and "Too expensive".  I often thought about how cool it would be to actually be able to speak Chinese and I had several friends that could speak Chinese, and I never took the steps to learn Chinese.

Then one day at the age of 36, I remember it very clearly, I was walking around lonely on the streets of Berkeley California, and something just clicked in my mind and I decided, I have had 16 years of not learning to speak China and I decided at that moment to do something right then to learn Chinese.  I found the nearest bookstore and bought an audio program to learn Chinese.

After a few years of regularly learning Chinese, 3-5 days per week,, I can now , talk quite fluently in Chinese.  I am no where near a native speaker, but still much better than before, and most people, including me, would consider me a successful Chinese speaker.

The same goes with any area that you want to learn.  If you want to be successful, happy, motivated, or positive, first make a decision that you want something and then take some small action towards your goal.  Then take regular actions towards your goal.  I don't advise you to expect to learn some miracle that will provide you any of these overnight, just like I did not learn to speak Chinese overnight, be patient and enjoy the journey.

Don't worry if you did not grow up in successful surrounding.  You don't have to be a naturally successful person.  You can learn to be successful, just as I was able to learn Chinese, and it is never too late to start.
