These Tips to Success are attributed to a recent Steve Harvey show I watched where he interviewed several millionaires. Each had stories from rags to riches. I know just what you are thinking, “Oh they all have their big stories”. Well frankly, I find these stories intriguing and believable. Admit it, we all have had tough times in our lives and being able to pick yourself up and push on, let alone become a millionaire is inspiring.
I know there are lots of skeptics out there that feel these types of success stories are scams, so I ask you to open your mind and consider it just might be possible to change your life, if you want it bad enough. I believe I will succeed because failure is not an option. All of the information shared on the show is exactly in line with what I have been learning and trained to get my business growing.
Here are the 10 Tips to Success:
- Believe What you See (Imagination)
Imagine what your life would look like if you never had to worry about money again. What would you do? Buy a new home, car, or boat. Would you vacation, feel stress free to cover college expenses for your kids, help your family and friends that may be having hard times? You have the freedom to make those decisions.
2. Find Mentors
Aligning yourself with like minded people is invaluable. A mentor will honestly give you the good, the bad, and the ugly. To be the best you can be, you need that critique to get it right.
3. Show Gratitude
Abandon the blame and shame of your past life experiences. The past can not be changed so continuing to carry and hold on to or place blame is useless energy. Use that energy in a positive way and you will succeed.
4. Don’t follow a parked car
What does that mean? It means follow the habits of successful people. An example that was shared is “Does a dog chase a parked car?” Of course not. dogs chase moving cars, so follow people on the move.
5. Be Confident, Not Arrogant
Showing your confidence attracts people. Being arrogant turns people off and away from you. Staying confident and positive in all areas of your life is the absolute road to success.
6. Start Small
To truly succeed, become an expert in one strategy at a time will help you to build the confidence you need. You will run into obstacles but you will be able to push through them and easily keep moving forward and then be ready to tackle the next strategy.
7. Be Accountable
Take control of any situation that arises in your business. Find a resolution and react to correct any issue and don’t be afraid to ask for help. We all need help from time to time.
8. Stay in the Game
Set your mind that failure is not an option. This mindset keeps on track to your success. There are many things you can do to remind you of your vision and reasons you want success. Never quit.
9. Remove the word “CAN’T” from your Vocabulary
This tip is similar to several listed above. Be a sponge, taking in information from others, whether it is positive or negative. This will help you learn how to talk with others about what you do for a living. Flipping a conversation from negative to positive can be life changing.
Lastly, always Believe in yourself and your success. Never lose sight of your ultimate vision. It is there waiting for you, just reach out and accept it.
