What are your top tips for reaching greater levels of success?
- Vision – create a compelling vision and never, ever let it go. It may change form over time, but the essence will remain the same. Match that vision with some challenging milestone goals. Write it all down. Make a video/DVD of it. Post it on YouTube. Make a ‘vision board’ by cutting out pictures of the things and the life you want – make a collage. Look at this every day. Do something that is irrevocable to ensure commitment – throw your keys over the wall.
- Coach – find a coach or a vision buddy by hiring a professional or finding a friend who believes in you and has their own set of goals which they also need support with. Six keys for mutual coaching are?:
- Set goals and ground rules.
- Establish a timeline and commit to it.
- Listen actively and ensure accuracy by repeating back what the other person has said.
- Brainstorm new ideas.
- Help each other stay accountable.
- Celebrate your learning and successes along the way.
- Model people you admire -find people you admire in the field you choose to succeed in. If you don’t know anyone personally, get DVDs and CDs. Note how these people speak, what their beliefs are, how they move. Decide which parts you wish to model and then do it.
- Move away from negative people – you don’t need negative people in your circle of influence. Don’t hang out with those who are cynical about your vision and don’t believe in you. Remember, people are contagious!
- Education – invest in education and development in the area you want to master, and in yourself. Practise what you learn.
- Be a ‘habits sponge‘- study the habits of people you want to be like and develop new habits with a ‘whatever it takes’ mentality.
- Laugh – laugh often and loud. Laughter is a therapeutic tool and one that generates creative thought. To me, success is empty if you can’t laugh.
