5 keys to success
Updated: Jan 22
This week I want you to think about these 5 things and how you can apply them...
What are the Keys to Success? That's the million dollar question. Well, I've got SOME insight... 1. Create value - Is what you're doing creating something meaningful, valuable or tangible? If not, what are you doing it for? #leagacy is something we hear about a lot these days (and all throughout history, for that matter), what do you want yours to look like? 2. Improve lives - You don't have to be a doctor to improve someone's life. Most of my clients do what they do because they want to help people (and of course make a living). Take inventory of your gifts, skills, talents, interests, etc. and put them to good use! When you strive to improve other people's lives, you undoubtedly improve your own in the process. 3. Be authentic - This is so important. No matter where you are, who you're with, what you're doing - be yourself. A favorite quote of mine is by Oscar Wilde, "Be yourself, everyone else is already taken." Especially in today's marketplace, there's someone for everything, it seems like every slot has already been filled, but that's just not true! Take me for example, I offer business consulting services, specializing in digital marketing, branding, web design & copywriting, and so do 20k other people! Is that stopping me? No. Because I know that my authentic self is valueable and I have something special to offer people. Period. 4. Be positive - Your attitude will make or break any situation, hands down. Another quote comin' at you... "In order to carry a positive action, we must develop a positive vision." - Dalai Lama. I talk with my clients all the time about having a VISION, but that vision and those goals don't mean anything if you don't have the right mindset. So make the decision today to just be positive. It's so simple! 5. Do what you love - Now this one is easier said than done. Obviously, if we're doing something we love, the rest of these fall in line - you'll be positive, authentic, you'll improve lives and ultimately create value. Makes sense, right? BUT unfortunately not all of us have the luxury of working at our dream job. So, what are you going to do about it? This directly ties into my blog post on "Stop Talking. Begin Doing." When you create that positive vision and the goals to get you there, nothing can stop you! Yes, there will be setbacks, there always are - that's life, but if you want to create happiness for your life, then you have to be doing what you love. So start today.
If you follow these 5 keys to success, I KNOW you'll be successful.
