I kept writing my page a day, there were Army stories, business stories, family stories, and more. You would be amazed how many different stories you have in you. I was up to about 254 pages. This year I started to to turn my attention to the book I wanted to write to help others. Each day after writing my one page for My 365 Page Book, I would write some notes and thoughts on success, money making, goals, leadership, management, and more. On April 17, I had started a matrix of what different authors thought the secrets to success were and I thought I had found my book, All The Secrets to Success. I stopped doing my page a day for My 365 Page Book and focused on All The Secrets of Success. This was exciting, I dove into reading and rereading many books about success. Much of the research I had done could be used as a spring board. I was losing some interest a few months into the book, I was saying quite a bit in my book, but I began to question if it was practical. Many of the success books are very inspiring, but really do not tell you what to do to be successful. I guess in my mind I was starting to think people really wanted to know how to make money, not just be successful. Success is many things, and money definitely does not have to be part of it, but I was beginning to feel like my voice was going to be to motivate and then tell people as well as I could how to make lots of money.
Toward the end of the year, mostly December, I had moved away from All the Secrets of Success and now was looking at a very specific type of success-making lots of money.
