2014 Success Tips – Part 2

How Bad to You Want your Dream ? !

How Bad do You Want your Dream ? !

Hey there Folks,

Here is the second part of Success tips for attaining your 2014 goals.

Remember, you don’t have to jump in and try doing all these tips in one day.

You could start by adding one tip a day, or even a week. Then before you know it….

You’ll have built up a Momentum of Success that helps carry you toward your goals.

Well, without further ado, here’s some more tips for ya …..

Keeping a journal is like the phrase “Preparation Meets Opportunity”, with a journal, ; one for your planning, scheduling, and working ideas. The other for your big ideas, thoughts, and Personal goals.

Things become more REAL when you take the time to write them down.

You’re taking the time to Think it, Write it, AND Read it.  3 important steps of ANY plan. Get in the habit of writing everything down.

Have a To-Do List? Write it down!

Have a Goal? Write it down!

Have a Dream? Write it down!

 

Measure stuff.

If it’s important enough for you to be spending your time on, then it needs to be measured. SO….. Get in the habit of measuring your actions and results, you’ll develop a playbook for what works and what doesn’t.

Do it in 90 … of course you know I mean your work … Right !

Schedule tasks into blocks of time. Respect the time you sit in front of the computer.

It’s amazing how quickly time can zip by if you’re not disciplined in this respect. There are thousands of distractions online (Facebook, YouTube, Email, etc).

Keep a stopwatch nearby. Focus on a 90 minute blocks of work. Once your 90 minutes are up, take an “active” break (exercise to get your blood pumping).

Not only will you get a lot more done, but you will find your work much more fulfilling and rewarding.

 

Equally Important … Take active breaks.

In between those 90 minutes of Doing It time …. take “active” breaks in between your 90 minute blocks of work.

This doesn’t need to be anything extreme, maybe just some light stretching and walking to get your blood pumping.

If still in between work, make sure the activity you do doesn’t take you away from getting back and finishing the job at hand.

 

Wake up early.

This reminds me of the phrase; “The early bird catches the worm”.  It can be tough for many people, but if you study extremely successful people, you’ll quickly discover that the great majority have the habit of waking up early in the morning before the rest of the world.

 

This is ALWAYS important and helps keep us and the world in perspective…..Put your family first.

Here’s a big one to lay on you …

Always put family first, even if the only family you’ve got is close friends.

When you focus on serving and doing things for others, outside your own personal gain, you’ll quickly discover you feel a lot more fulfilled and accomplished.

Finding you purpose often has to do with this habit.

 

Work harder than your competition.

Success is inevitable if you constantly outwork your competition. Make this your mantra and you’ll find yourself reaching your goals at record speed!

If it doesn't challenge you ... It won't change you !

If it doesn’t challenge you … It won’t change you !

 

Use a big white board.

This habit is probably my favorite out of the whole list!

In fact, I’ve got not one but TWO white boards. One is a calendar white board to write daily goals on, while the other is your standard white board to write or draw….YES I said draw…..since our brains work amazingly well with pictures (Google It on “Mind Mapping”)

Use a giant white board to keep your goals close and visible to you while working.

When you goals become crystal clear in your mind, it becomes so much easier to attain them.

 

Share your dream…don’t just visualize…. VERBALIZE !!

Get in the habit of speaking your dreams and goals out loud.

Speaking your dreams gives them life!

This habit becomes even more powerful when the sharing takes place among like minded people.

Surround yourself with people who Inspire and Motivate you.

Surround yourself with people who will build you up. If people around you are constantly tearing you down, then separate yourself from that environment as quickly as possible.

Remember, you will become the average of the five people you hang out with the most.

 

Remember…. Keep a healthy body.

Another Big One…. yet so often forgotten!

Believe it or not, a healthy body is tied to your wallet.

It becomes really hard to maintain a healthy mind when your body, your mind’s home, isn’t working properly !

 

Spend your money only on things that will fuel your dream.

Best, especially at first,  to avoid spending your money on “things” such as cars, clothes, vacations, etc.

Instead, invest your money into personal development along with those things that will fuel your business growth!

 

Every Successful person has done this one … Make a sacrifice !

Attaining success is all about delayed gratification!

Get in the habit of sacrificing “things” in order to acquire the life you so desire!

The road to success isn’t one of luxury and excess! Instead, it’s all about learning about self-control, sacrifice, hard work and discipline!

 

Remember to do this each month…. Review your journals .. they are one of your Best Friends !

Get in the habit of writing in a journal …. then … reviewing what you’ve written. This helps you materialize your thoughts.

 

Always finish your day with what I like to call…. Attitude of Gratitude. Again, using your journal, write down five things you’re thankful for today. 

Develop a habit of being grateful. It’s proven that people who are happy and grateful achieve far more than negative and pessimistic people!

Count your blessings. The mind is a powerful thing. When focused on the right things (your blessings), it has a way of multiplying what it focuses on.

Most of all, each day, remember to FEEL the Rain ~
