SUCCESS IN LIFE
The following steps will help keep you motivated to create more success in life:
Step 1 – Have A Purpose
We all need a purpose in life. Without one, life is meaningless.
What very few people understand is that life is meaningless until you give it meaning.
God, The Universe, our Creator (whatever you want to call it) has bestowed upon us the great gift to define what life means to each one of us.
So make the decision now as to what life means to you.
What is your purpose?
Step 2 – Know What You Want
Once you have determined what your purpose is, you need to know what you want to create.
Some may assume that this is the same thing as defining your purpose but its not.
Your purpose is the big picture and knowing what you want is more granular.
For example, your purpose can be, “I want to make a positive difference in the world”.
Knowing what you want is “how” you are going to do that.
Purpose = big picture (macro)
What you want = how (micro)
Step 3 – Take Action Every Day
Here is a simple way to take action every day:
A. Write down your goals for the month
B. Chunk down your goals by week one through four
C. Chunk down your goals day by day for each week
Here is an article on goal setting
Step 4 – Get Help
Whatever you do, don’t go it alone.
You are venturing down a path you have never been down before. Doesn’t it make sense to find someone who can help guide you?
If you were going to set sail to Antarctica and have never been, wouldn’t it be worth it to hire someone who has been already and can make sure you get there safe and sound?
Don’t be cheap.
Don’t be a tough guy.
Step 5 – Create Good Habits
Our lives are nothing than the sum total of our daily habits.
No one gets to the top of their mountain because of one or two big things they did.
It’s the day-to-day small actions they took.
Step 6 – Stay Focused & Disciplined
This is one of the good habits you will need to establish and that is: making the most of your time.
The art of getting sh*t done is going to be paramount to your success in life.
Turn off your phone.
Turn off your email.
Turn off the TV.
Focus on your to-do list and get it done.
You have no one else to blame but yourself if you don’t.
Step 7 – Get Back Up
If you make a mistake, learn from it and get back up.
There are no failures, just learning experiences.
All data is good data if you use it that way.
Life is an experiment and you are the test subject.
Learn and keep going.
SUCCESS IN BUSINESS
While a lot of what was mentioned above holds true for entrepreneurs, here are some other key points specifically for businesses:
Step 1 – Solve A Problem
When you know that your business solves a problem, it will motivate you to continue when things become difficult because you know that you are doing something to help people.
Step 2 – Create A Fun Healthy Environment
As an entrepreneur, you are creating a work environment for people to come deliver their best work. If you want your team to be motivated, create a killer environment they will enjoy each day.
Step 3 – Hire The Right People
Find people who believe in your vision and you wont have to spend countless hours trying to motivate them. Your vision will be sufficient.
Step 4 – Take Care Of Yourself
There is a saying that goes, “Healer, heal thyself”
When one gives of themselves too much, they become out of balance and forget to take of their own needs.
As a business owner, your job is to give: to the company, your employees, your execs, etc.
Make sure you take time for yourself so that you don’t become resentful or burn out.
