Life is a fantastic game. We can either spend our time training and winning or spend our time in the bleachers of life waiting, watching and wishing we were on the field doing the things we really know we can do and want to do. You are in charge of your life. How you live is your decision. You can make excuses and rationalize all day why you are not on the field, but until you decide you want to be in the game to enjoy the victories and suffer the bruises and defeats, you will not be happy or reach the success you know you deserve or capable of achieving. Until you give yourself permission to win, you will be spinning your wheels.
Decide today that you want to win, deserve to win, and are going to win.We have to find that winning edge that will propel us to the top and help us to things we know we are capable of achieving. Once we can get ourselves to do the right things we can start working on success skills that make the difference.
Remember all the best athletes need a coach to take them to the next level. Coaches/mentors see your strengths and weaknesses and will give you an objective view. We can gain that winning edge - the difference between top and average performers. Remember the Olympics, the difference between gold and silver is usually hundreds of a second. The gold medallist gets most the recognition and all the endorsements.
They earn ten times the money, but did they work ten times harder? It is all about the right tools and the right mindset. Most people try to chop down the tree of success with a pocket knife, what they need is the right tool. Success is all about the chain saw.Your life is not a trial run or a dress rehearsal. There is no reset button, take-overs, or mulligans.
This is it. We deserve to be happy, have true successful and have an enjoyable life. Things will not change with hope and desire although that is a great starting point. The mistake many people make in seeking success is trying to find the quick fix or something that will work overnight.
They spend so much time and effort to furnish the house before the foundation is laid. They worry about the roof before the walls are up. Success is a sequential process. (but not linear) There are steps to achieve success.
Just in climbing a mountain it is done a step at a time. The path up the hill of success is there for us to follow and short cuts or the quick fix only give you temporary solutions or feelings that will not last or bring true success. True success is individual gathering of experiences, knowledge and listening to your heart. This leads you to a path of happiness and attainment of your objectives.
You must learn to focus you energy and emotions into a burning desire and concentrate on what you want. This kind of sure, solid desire will be the foundation for ensuing your success. Desire is the first step. Because your desire will be so great so strong your will subconsciously give every ounce that is in you to achieve want you were and what you were DNA coded to achieve. If you have not tapped into your energy and drive you become a creature of habit and always follow the path of least resistance.
You become complacent with life and will get stuck in your comfort zone. We start to gain a percent of what we want, but fail to work hard enough to finish the race. You start to achieve a little of what we wanted get complacent and put ourselves on cruise control.Take control of your life and quit being complacent get off of cruise control. Sure cruise control has it moments but if you navigate life in constant cruise control (Explain going through the motions) you cannot achieve exponential success.
Just like a car you don't have to think much when you have the car on cruise control. All you have to do is go through the motions.You are in charge of our own destiny. You take charge of your own development, outcome and success. No one else can make you grow or give you success.
You will find you have unlimited resources of energy that you have never have been tapped, more talent than has been touched or explored. More strength than has ever been used. It has taken years of even a decade fore you to reach this area in your life.
This will not be the easiest thing you have ever done in your life, only the most rewarding and satisfying. You cannot be happy in life unless you are doing the things you know you want to do and accomplish. You have within you a power plant burning with potential energy. Right now you have the potential to light a whole city but you are only burning one bulb or lighting one house.
The potential is there you and you need to tap it.You must to have the will to win. Find the desire to make the changes that will bring success and happiness. It will be worth it and it will take some effort. Just when the space shuttle goes into orbit it has to expend the most fuel getting the momentum to get out of the atmosphere.
But once it gets into orbit it expends less energy. Just like ES it is hard at first then it becomes a natural process. Becoming successful is like starting to exercise. At first it starts to hurt and take a lot of mental effort to get to the point where it feels good and is exhilarating.You have started with desire to be and achieve the things you know you want.
Desire is the difference between a average person and a high achiever. Be careful because desire and complacency tend to contradict each other. You must decide the complacency and comfort zone is the real reason you are not where you want to be. Sure you can come up with lists of excuses and rationalizations but if you are not on that list you have to back up and take full responsibility for who and what you are and become. Learn to push yourself beyond your capabilities.
Never cap your ability to be successful; you have never reached your best in all areas of your life. This includes your personal best; you can perform beyond your limits and skills. The plan will unfold a piece at a time. When you are ready to begin the success process the pieces of the plan begin to appear.
.Persuasion is the missing puzzle piece that will crack the code to dramatically increase your income, improve your relationships, and help you get what you want, when you want, and win friends for life. Ask yourself how much money and income you have lost because of your inability to persuade and influence.
Think about it. Sure you've seen some success, but think of the times you couldn't get it done. Has there ever been a time when you did not get your point across? Were you unable to convince someone to do something? Have you reached your full potential? Are you able to motivate yourself and others to achieve more and accomplish their goals? What about your relationships? Imagine being able to overcome objections before they happen, know what your prospect is thinking and feeling, feel more confident in your ability to persuade. Professional success, personal happiness, leadership potential, and income depend on the ability to persuade, influence, and motivate others.
