I spent the last week traveling out of state for my coaching intensive training with my coach and a couple hundred other entrepreneurs from as far away as Germany. While I was there learning and listening to the BEST of the BEST one thing became very evident to me.
“Real success takes discipline and methodology”
I found myself with people who were telling their truth about success…no fluff…no sugar coating, no drama….YES! and they told it as it is …” IT IS HARD WORK” however #doyourwork and you too can be sharing your story on stage in the near future.
As I was researching my topic for my newsletter this article popped up at me it is very on time and supported all the information my teachers spoke so eloquently about at the coaching intensive this past week.
Most people claim to want success. But not everyone is willing to do the hard work and the smart work to get there. Often opportunities present themselves and because people are distracted, they miss them or give up on them before things fully develop.
Truly successful people don’t leave much to chance. They are disciplined and focused. They constantly seek new methods to achieve more, in bigger and faster ways. Listed below are eight different practices that will help you concentrate your efforts on rising above the tide.
Make Materialism Irrelevant:
Fancy cars and houses are all well and good, but many foolishly focus on the byproducts of success, rather than concentrating on building sustainable success in the first place. Establish a bare minimum for your material needs, and then you can enjoy the benefits of success, debt and stress free.
Success comes faster to those who are open, active learners. The higher up the success ladder you climb, the more complex the systems and opportunities that are presented to you. Absorb all the information you can and if you sense a gap you can’t fill, connect with people who have the knowledge you need.
Manage Relationship Expectations:
People in your life require time. Successful individuals attract folk and so they have to carefully regulate the time they can spend with others. It’s hard to limit the time you share and still make people feel important. Make choices about the people who matter to you and determine how you each can get value from your interactions. Then make sure they understand your limitations so they don’t take it personally when you can’t be present.
Practice Emotional Self-Awareness:
Commit to a Physical Ideal:
Everyone has a vision of their own perfect body. They don’t have to be fashion models or athletes to be happy. But physical health is a consideration in their life and it’s a big distraction when it gets out of whack. Determine the body you believe is worth working for and set a game plan to achieve and maintain it.
Gain Clarity about Spirituality:
Adhere to a Code of Ethics:
Focus on Time Efficiency:
Prioritization is a key component of success. You can’t reach your pinnacle if you are wasting time on distractions. Integration of activities frees up time for greater achievement. Spend your time on activities that are fun, enlightening and productive and soon you’ll have gained hours to reap the benefits of success.
