Keys To Success
Your success depends on your mental attitude and on actually taking action rather than just thinking about doing things. If you follow these success principles you will succeed.
First, you need to take control of your thoughts
What do you think about? You tend to get what you think about, so be careful to think about what you do want rather than what you don't want.
This is crucial to your success. Think about what you do want to happen and don't sabotage your efforts with negative thinking.
Your focus is the key
What you focus your thinking on determines your future and your level of success.
If you have something you want to achieve you need to focus on it. You will find it much easier to focus if you
- reduce clutter
- narrow your options
- minimise distractions
- eliminate excuses
To ensure success
It helps if you
- Are committed to what you're doing
- Develop your skills
- Observe the success of other people
- Model their success
- Learn from people who have gone before you
- Learn from their success and learn from their failures too
- Don't be afraid to experiment
- Test to find out what works for you and make adjustments
Let go of the need to do things perfectly. Give yourself permission to try things out. Discover ways not to do things. If something doesn't work, find another way to do it. You only fail when you give up.
Develop an optimistic outlook. Focus on opportunities. Take action and refuse to get caught up in negative thinking.
You will find that you can generally do what you set your mind to do. That's why focus and minimising distractions is so important.
The biggest mistake people make is putting things off and not taking action. When things present themselves to you, decide that you will either ‘do it now’ or schedule when you will do it.
One last tip
Set yourself shorter deadlines. If you have a deadline you will work to meet it. If you allow yourself too much time, you will simply spend longer completing a project. You tend to get things done as a deadline approaches. Shorter deadlines will help you to focus and you will get things done sooner.
