5 Must-Have Principles for Personal Breakthrough

Written by Stephen Scoggins

November 13, 2019

A successful life is a meaningful life!

If your life always seems like you’re taking one step forward and three steps back, then there’s no doubt you are standing in a place I once stood myself—frustrated, tired, and feeling like I had nothing left in the tank to give. I, like you, was in need of a Life Mastery Overhaul—more commonly referred to as a breakthrough.

The Struggle is Real!

I used to hate that word and other words like it, because I felt like I was trying everything in the book to break free, only to find myself not even close to my hopeful expectations.

If you’re also tired of repeated frustrations that leave your greatest heart’s desires, passions, and goals well out of reach, then this eBook is for you! And if you don’t mind, I’m going to write it directly to the person I used to be, because at the end of the day I believe I can help shave a decade off your learning curve because it would’ve saved two decades off mine.

“Of all the words of mice and men, the saddest are, ‘It might have been.’”
— Kurt Vonnegut

When I was young, I suppose I was just like everyone else and had dreams of changing the world through all kinds of methods—guitarist, author, speaker, and my favorite, a Ninja! (Lol) Seriously, I had dreams and aspirations, and I’m sure you do too. For me, I had no problem dreaming until life truly got in the way.

While I had parents that loved me, they weren’t around much because they were off chasing their own personal difficulties. And call it nature or nurture, I found myself struggling greatly early on through a huge portion of my life, and with each passing day, I think I started giving up just a little more.

Life just never seemed to go my way. Dropping out of high school to help support my family; always behind financially; jumping from one terrible job to the next. I found myself homeless and without any hope. I’d all but decided that my life didn’t turn out the way I’d wanted—I was stuck, and it seemed like this lackluster life would become my every day normal.

Where Do You Stand?

  • How about you?
  • Where did your journey start?
  • Where has your journey led you to date?
  • Would you give just about anything to finally get traction?
  • Do you have more money than meaning or more poverty than impact?
  • Are you tired of feeling stuck?
  • Have you stopped dreaming about what life could look like or is that all you dream about?

What’s Your Current Reality?

Is there a huge gorge between where you are and where you want to be?
What would it feel like to punch your fear, adversity, and setback in the face?

I actually have a fond memory of leaving the broken-down trailer park behind me and – pardon the imagery – flipping it off saying, “I beat you $@%^&.”

What would your life look like if you could escape the rut you are in?
The start of my personal breakthrough came from someone who gave me yet another second chance. His name was Steve Myrick. Steve not only gave me a job, but mentored me, showing me why I was stuck, what I needed, and what it would take to truly become unstoppable. And you know what—he was right!

The Promise

He made me promise that one day I would commit to doing the same, and that promise brings me here to you today. No matter where you started, what you’ve been through, or how many times you’ve tried
with no success, hope can start today, and it’ll lead you to your freedom tomorrow. There were five foundational principles that Steve taught me. Practicing these principles changed my life.

In 20 years, I went from homeless to owning and running several multimillion-dollar businesses. A business may not be your thing, which is totally cool because these principles transform everyday life into an extraordinary one.

“Principles are fundamental truths that serve as the foundations for behavior that get you what you want in your life. They can be applied again and again in similar situations to help you achieve your goals.” — Stephen Covey

The 5 Principles I am about to share with you radically altered the course of my life, and I know they will do the same for you, but only if you decide right now—just as I did—to put them into action. YOU HAVE TO COMMIT! I want to share with you these life-altering principles. But don’t just read about them, take them and put them into action. These principles worked for me, and I know they will work for you.

In order to not make this blog excessively long, I went ahead and put the 5 Principles in a Free PDF. If you are looking for a Breakthrough then I invite you to take advantage of over twenty years of learning, so you too can have the breakthrough I was able to find in my own life.

P.S. Please feel free to share this blog with a friend if they are in need!
