Well what are they? We all have some, but usually take them for granted. What works for some does not necessarily work for others though. Some don't suit your personality type or the business you are in.Now,you may not be overwhelming successful, but there are some things that win for you. Take some time, sit down and try to work it out what they are. Cause once you do, and filter out those that don't, you may be more successful more often.
Here are a few things clients have told me, work for them.Simplify
Get rid of the fluff. In your home remove any unnecessary furnishings and clothing.Remove clutter. Have a car that can fit in a car space. Walk a bit more. Get your feet on the ground.
Work out in short, sharp regular varied routines. Cut down your portions. No added sugar. Reduce alcohol.
Simplify your job description. Delegate with KPI’s. Archive your laptop content. Talk to staff and customers more. Go paperless. Work out what’s core to your success.Getting Started
Read on current affairs before bed or on rising. Read on business and other topics daily. Keep electronic folders of what you find potentially useful.Write down your tasks and prioritize for the day. Visualize them being complete and the benefits they will bring.
Visualize what personal success looks like. Work out what results will get you there in the fastest possible time. Determine the steps to get you there and realize that it will take Discipline to get you there.
Beak these steps down into daily goals and reward yourself daily, when you get there. It may just be a coffee break, but it will keep your discipline on track.Test People
Test staff, clients, customers, acquaintances, advisors, as soon as you can after meeting them. It may be asking them to do something already knowing the outcome. See how they measure up. That way you can know how far you can trust them. Retest them a few more times down the track.Have Faith
Pursue your goals. Don't take it personally when you get a knock back, not matter how hard. Just pick yourself up and keep going. Be interested in everyone you come across and their story. Listen. It will rub off and create goodwill. Then look to see how you can engage. If not maybe next time. If you can do them a favor or refer them to someone who can help - do it!Your positive thoughts become your words, actions and your habits.
Your habits then become your character, and how people regard you.
If your character is of quality, then higher goals can be reached.Systems
Build the system around you that supports you and your goals. That includes staff, family and friends. That includes the right locations, equipment, transport, software, but then most importantly, how you interact with them all to reinforce the character you want to be.Importantly, be able to chill. Don't take yourself too seriously and have a sense of humor about all situations you find yourself in, daily. What are your Secrets to Success?
