I am excited to see so many making a commitment to create positive change for 2021. There are no shortcuts, there are no secret formulas. Getting to a higher level of success is going to take 100% devotion on your part.
Last week we discussed three steps. We talked about the importance of having a success plan, staying focused, and being productive.
In order to achieve your goals, it’s important to know exactly what it is that you want to achieve. Once you have established that, put together a success plan; eliminate all the distractions and stay focused. Make sure that you make every second count. Time is your capital and you must invest it properly.
In part 2 of “Getting it Done in 2021,” I am going to share steps 4-7. Let me encourage you to write these down and apply them.
4) LOOK AHEAD
Don’t look back, you’re not going that way. The only time you should ever look back is to see how far you have come.
If you ever notice that in a vehicle, the rearview mirror is very small and your windshield is big. Keep looking ahead and drive towards your goals.
We all have a past, each of us have had mistakes in our lives. There have been circumstances that may have happened to us that were out of our control. Sometimes life is not fair, we can choose to be bitter or we can become better. We can choose to be a victim or a victor.
Successful people do not fret about the past, they are always moving forward and envisioning the future. You will make progress by taking constant steps forward and understanding that failure is part of the process. Use your failures as learning experiences, and remember that your past does not equal your future.
5) BE PERSISTENT
Successful people know that if they want to get things done, they have to be persistent and not stop until they are finished. No matter what, they never give up.
Let me make this crystal clear, you will have difficult times and you may have times when you feel like throwing in the towel. Never listen to the naysayers. Find the people who are in life where you want to be and allow them to encourage you. Don’t look back. Keep marching forward and no matter what, NEVER QUIT!
6) TAKE ACTION
People often ask “When do I start?” Start right now and start right where you are. It’s okay that you don’t have all the knowledge, you will learn as you go. Get out there and make it happen. You can have success right out of the gates.
If there is no action, there are no results. Quit studying and make the commitment to take action. Be accountable and accept responsibility for your actions.
It’s a very simple formula. The more you put into it, the more you will get out of it. Be consistent and give 100% daily.
7) HELP AS MANY PEOPLE AS YOU CAN
Long-term success is directly tied to how well you serve others. If you really want true joy and happiness in your life, it’s important that you take the focus off yourself and commit to helping others. And I’m not just talking about giving money, I’m talking about helping people, organizations, and communities. That’s going to involve spending time. It’s a commitment but it is truly worth it.
There is no greater gift than giving. We rise up by lifting others up. When you help others achieve their dreams, you will achieve your own dreams. Become a helper. Become a giver and watch the amazing blessings that you receive. We don’t do it for the blessings, but it is an added incredible bonus if your heart is in the right place.
Are you ready to get it done in 2021? This is your time, you are truly worth it. Never sell yourself short and always remember that you are designed for greatness!
Have a super fantastic week! Let’s get it done!
