Many people talk about becoming successful but, unfortunately, that’s all they do–talk. Most of their sentences begin with, “Someday, one day, soon, as soon as, etc.” The reality is they procrastinate and never begin.
First of all, in order to be successful, you have to decide what success means to you. Once you have decided, it’s important to write your dreams out. Once you have done that, the next step is to establish a plan on what it’s going to take to achieve those dreams. This is how you turn your dreams into goals. Goals are dreams with a plan.
After you have all that in place, the next step is to take action. Keep in mind that success does not happen overnight. You are going to experience a lot of failure but that is all part of the learning process. It takes a 100% commitment. No matter what happens, you are never going to give up and you are sticking to your plan of success.
Let me share with you a few success strategies that will help you achieve your dreams. Keep in mind, these are behaviors that must be embraced.
Be Disciplined with Rituals.
This is vital if you want to have long-term success. Very often, many people simply fly by the seat of their pants. Starting today, map out a very disciplined success schedule. Plan out your whole week. For those of you with RMS, you should know exactly where you are going to be working every day.
Start waking up earlier. Get your body moving. Get on an exercise routine. Eat healthy. Do what it takes to become successful. Make a commitment to leave the house no later than 7:30 A.M. and to be home by 6:00 P.M. Be disciplined with the sales calls that you are making. The bottom line is, you need to get as many people in front of you as possible in order to have success.
Throughout the day, start making phone calls to the most successful people in the industry and get to know them. Make sure that your circle of influence is super positive. Be 100% committed each and every day to your goals and work hard at it. This is discipline.
Continue to Grow.
Once you stop growing, you start shrinking. No matter what level of achievements that you reach, make the decision to constantly improve. This applies to all areas of your life. Look for ways to grow in your relationships, your career, and your health.
If you are the smartest person in the room, you are in the wrong room. Surround yourself with people that you can learn from. Read books and watch videos to help you become motivated.
Have a Blast Every Day.
Starting today, adopt this slogan: “I am too blessed to be stressed.” Remember that being happy is a choice. Life is way too short to worry about the little things. Write down five things that you are extremely grateful for and focus on the positive all the time. Greet every person that you encounter with a smile and a positive, welcoming spirit. Your attitude should be that everyone you meet will have a better day just because they have met you.
As soon as you get out of bed, begin by making this statement: “Today is going to be an awesome day and I am going to have a blast!” Keep your focus positive throughout the day and do not allow any negativity to hold you back.
You are on your success journey. I’m rooting for you. I believe in you. Work on these success strategies and go for it! You can do this!
Have a blast this week!
