I think one thing that is very important is having examples of successful people you can emulate. I've noticed that my friends who had successful parents/family members didn't struggle as much against their own success. It felt more natural to them. They grew up believing success was possible or even inevitable. Others (including myself) whose parents didn't exemplify success had a harder time realizing we could indeed succeed. So, if we fall into the latter category, it's very important to read about successful people, watch movies about successful people, and start meeting and befriending successful people. Their example enables you to start getting in touch with the successful person you were meant to be.

This is an interesting point that you make, Mary Ellen. I agree - Our environment does play a role in our success, though doesn't have to be the defining role. Look around. Be aware. Allow space for something different. These are all wonderful practices to grow success from the inside out -- Inner Samurai style.
