We hear it all the time, been told by our parents, society, friends, etc that succeeding at anything takes time. That belief system has been printed in our mind, but think again… that time can be shortened somewhat by applying a few simple techniques to the process that I teach many of my clients:
1. Make a plan
A plan is like a road map that shows you where you are now and the best route to use to get to where you want to be. Those who “fail to plan, plan to fail” as the wise old saying tells us “dont just think a plan in your head…you wont remember all the little twists and turns along the road” instead write it down in black and white and in as much detail as you can. Each and every day, do at least one thing that will advance your progress toward your goal.
Learn everything you can about your chosen subject. Knowledge is power. Surround yourself with information and organize it so that you can easily access the particulars in any area. There is no detail so small that it doesnt merit your searching out every scrap of information about it.
3. Role Model or Mentor
If you can find someone who has succeeded in the field you are pursuing, associate your self as closely as you can with that person. First hand knowledge is more valuable than any other kind. Successful people have already made mistakes
and they can help you avoid some pitfalls. They can open doors for you that would remain firmly closed without their help to open them.
4. Apply What You Learn
Use the knowledge that you gain from your own research and from you roll model or mentor. Put it into action as soon as you can…and the sooner the better.
5. Never Give Up
Overnight success happens because you wont take “no” for an answer. When you get knocked down…you get up. When a door closes…you crawl through a window. You work harder than anybody else and you too, can become an overnight success.
Our next workshop is to be held on the 8th of September ‘Fear to Freedom’ I will be teaching simple techniques to over come your fears that hold you back to creating the success you want in your life.
