Perhaps you feel stuck in a rut and unable to break out.
Perhaps you don’t remember your dreams.
Maybe you are on the brink of great success but just can’t seem to get there.
Here are some tips.
These are the 10 principles I use to achieve success in 3 of my 4 endeavors.
You are correct. About one out of four times I fail.
The grass stains are gone, so I get up and wash my pants.
These are my rules (tips and suggestions, laws, or whatever works best for you).
They may help you achieve your goals.
1. Forget about motivation.
Motivation is temporary and fleeting. This is one of the biggest frauds in the self-help business.
Instead, put your focus on commitment. What commitment are you making to your goal? What is the reason? What happens when you achieve it? What are you willing to do for your goal?
You will not succeed if you wait for the motivation fairy’s blessing to dust you with getting busy dust.
However, if you’re committed, you can take action and achieve your goals.
2: Keep your eyes on the journey
People who are focused on results will see their ability to succeed fade and die the first time they encounter a roadblock.
People who are focused on the journey, learning, exploring, and experimenting, can overcome obstacles.
3: Have Fun
What is the point of success books that don’t talk about FUN? You won’t be able to keep moving forward if you don’t have fun.
Life is an amazing game. It is a great game, and you’ll lose your perspective if you take things too seriously.
You can achieve even the most difficult goals if you approach it as a game, and have as much fun as you possibly can along the way.
4. No stinking thinking
You’re likely thinking if you’re awake. Those thoughts can determine your future. Do you feel hopeless, anxious, pessimistic, and afraid? It’s not possible to be successful.
If you choose to be happy, hopeful, and optimistic, feel excited, and are ready to take risks at any moment, I can almost guarantee your success in your life.
5: Reframe the crap
You don’t have to stay in one job; you are learning life skills that you can apply in your own business.
Tinnitus is not something you have. You can still hear the universe cheering for you.
Education is not a problem. You have an open mind and are ready to learn new information for your whole life.
The lady who cut you off in traffic – She is on her way to visit her mother who is dying in hospital. Isn’t it wonderful to have a better day?
What was the last failure in your business venture? This set the stage for your success in the new venture you are launching next month.
Transform all of the negative thoughts into positive things and you will see the magic happen. This simple trick has helped me get back in a positive mindset and allowed me to focus and move forward with energy.
6: Feel the fear, and then do it anyway
Here’s how to overcome your fear of doing whatever it is you are afraid to do.
Fear will only grow if you don’t.
You can do it, and it won’t be as scary as you thought. In fact, you might even find you enjoy it.
7: Get rid of distractions
You can’t seem to stop watching TV. You can cancel your TV service and give the TV away.
Do you spend too much time cleaning your house when you could be working on your business? You can hire someone to clean your house.
Are you passionate about a hobby? You can rent a storage unit to store all your hobbies stuff. You should not open it again until your next goal is achieved.
8: Baby, it’s all about you
Do it yourself.
Everyone has a life. Your spouse, your partner, your parents, and your friends. You are the one who will make it happen, no matter what it is you’re trying to achieve.
That includes being happy. You are the only one who can make you happy.
9: Get the help of others
Yes, I did just tell you that your success is entirely up to you and only you.
This doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t employ experts to help make your journey smoother. It is still up to you to choose the right people and make sure they do the job you want.
You will succeed if you do what it takes to be successful. Sometimes that means hiring other people to assist you.
10: Create a plan
The goal is clear, but how do you plan to achieve it? The next steps to reach your goal should be known. You can schedule when these three steps will be completed and then you can get to work on your plan.
