I get asked all the time for “the best success tip” I can give someone who is looking to turn things around. Although the detailed answer is truly different “case-by-case”, there is a little secret that will FORCE success.
I have to admit, there is a tricky part to this secret…
Consistency (the secret) can go either way, and it’s your job to control it. You can be consistently lazy. You can be the ultimate procrastinator and never really get anything accomplished due to you consistent non-efforts.
This is what REALLY separates the “go getter” from the “excuse-maker”; the activities you CHOOSE to consistently pursue. I know grown men who literally play video games or watch television consistently 2-3 hours a day that tell me they do not have time to for a part-time job or time to work on their personal development. On the other hand, I know grown men who are “successful” and cannot find enough time in the day to attend to ALL their business matters.
To me, it is a CLEAR choice and that choice is CHOOSING the actions/habits you do on a consistent basis. If you make excuses and CHOOSE to play video games over personal development activities, there is a clear distinction and reason for your outcome. To put it VERY simple, the habits (activities) you choose to execute on a daily (consistent) basis will determine your results (outcome) in life.
If you are NOT happy with what life currently looks like, stop and take notice to the activities you do on a consistent basis. There is a book titled “Rich Habits” by Thomas Corley and it dissects the difference between successful people and unsuccessful people through their daily habits. There is a MAJOR difference in habits and this book breaks each down in great detail; I highly recommend this book to ANYONE wanting to change their habits to those of the ELITE.
Once you have the RIGHT habits down and execute them on a consistent basis, you will FORCE success to come upon you. It is a matter of cause and effect. I suggest you take the time to analyze your daily habits and determine which ones are NOT yielding your desired outcome. Once you have selected these “bad habits”, replace them with “good habits” and implement them on a CONSISTENT basis. Each month you should take the time to reflect on your results and determine which activities need adjustments and which need to be replaced altogether.
These little changes done on a consistent basis will eventually FORCE success and you WILL become a part of the elite. If you need additional help with selecting better habits, email/contact me for a more ideas; I would be more than happy to help.
Let me know how consistency affect your life and what OTHER element you credit your success to.
To Your Massive Success,
I have read a TON of books in the personal development arena and learned A LOT of interesting things along the way. There was mostly some overlapping material with sparks of NEW ideas and tips that I truly benefited from. However, there was a secret that had been sewn into each book that could be overlooked very easily.
I want to talk about a MISSION we are all on (whether we realize it or not). I am currently reading a book titled, “Hero”, by Rhonda Byrne. This book explains the EXACT mission I want to talk about today; the hero journey.
We are ALL here for a reason and our mission is to fully realize this through our experience. There is a “hero” buried inside each one of us and it is our DUTY to pull the greatness out from the depths of our souls. We all have skills and abilities inside of us that were installed in us at birth. The trick is to tap into these attributes and sharpen them up through our journey; this is living life to its full potential.
The fun thing about the “hero journey” is that it completely diminishes the competition. There is NO COMPETITION in the “hero journey” except for yourself. YOU are the biggest challenge you must overcome to attain success throughout the process. This is great news because we can then cheer on everyone else during their journey in complete understanding we are ALL going through challenges at different levels.
If you see someone you know going through a rough patch, its best to simply show compassion. They really do not need your criticism (unless asked for); it’s unnecessary and not helpful. The point of the “hero journey” is progression. We are in this thing together and helping others progress forward on their mission is the ultimate gift. Show love and give a helping hand when a fellow hero is struggling; the deed will NOT go unnoticed.
One of the BEST ways of helping in the progression, is to view each person as a HERO. Imagine everyone was the Superman or Cat Woman in their own life, because they are! how much more differently would you look at the people around you if you viewed them as HERO’S? My prediction is that we would be living in a totally different world.
The MOST important task for each “hero” is to become the BEST version of themselves. If you haven’t been the best “hero” you can be thus far, it’s NEVER to late to change. To save the world…your world…simply takes a decision to WANT to CHANGE. Dig deep and discover the HERO inside of you and join the rest of us “hero’s” on our journey!
YOU ARE A HERO!
To Your massive Success,
This is indeed strange and I am not exactly sure what lead me to write on this specific post. It has ALWAYS been an interesting topic to me and I think it mainly had to do with a very interesting audio clip I heard that was produced in the 50’s. Yes, that is it! This strange thing I want to talk about comes from a timeless teaching.
The lesson was originally recorded on a record and has been distribution to millions of people worldwide. It is titled, “The Strangest Secret” by Earl Nightingale. The funny part about the title is that this “secret” is not strange nor is it much of a secret. I mean think about it, if it was publicly released and millions of people heard it, why does it sound so foreign to us?
So what is the “strangest secret” is that you become what you think about.
“Everything you and I will ever have will come to us as the result of the way we use our minds, the one thing we possess that makes us different from all other creatures.” – Earl Nightingale, The Strangest Secret
“Every one of us is the sum total of our own thoughts.” – Earl Nightingale, The Strangest Secret
Look around, most of whatever you see is a direct result of your thoughts. I do not want to go deep into the Law of Attraction, but I highly recommend you study it. It is a universal law, much like the law of gravity, therefore it is worth researching and understanding.
So if you look around and do not like what you see, stop and think about The Strangest Secret before you start blaming other people. Your very own thinking has produced the life you are currently looking. Now I know this is a very HARSH thing for people to grasp, but it’s the hard truth!
I put out a quote on social media recently that touched on this very subject. It was along the lines of, “Everything you and I will ever have will come to us as the result of the way we use our minds, the one thing we possess that makes us different from all other creatures.” – Earl Nightingale, The Strangest Secret
If you think negative things, negative things will be your result. If you put JUNK in your mind, only JUNK can come out. We cannot plant an apple seed and expect an orange tree to grow. In the same way, we cannot flood our brains with trash and expect to produce gold.
“You are what you think about.”- Earl Nightingale, The Strangest Secret
I do not want to regurgitate what Nightingale says, so I HIGHLY recommend you find The Strangest Secret recording and listen to it NUMEROUS times; it is well worth your investment. Instead, I will leave you with a priceless piece of advice by the man himself and expect for you to follow-up on this recording yourself. This recording WILL change your life!
“Prosperity is founded upon a law of mutual exchange. Any person who contributes to prosperity must prosper, in turn, himself. Sometimes the return will not come from those you serve, but it must come to you from someplace, for that is the law.”- Earl Nightingale, The Strangest Secret
To Your Massive Success,
Hello everyone! I wanted to kick this week off on the right foot, so this post will be a bit on the motivating side. We are at a critical time in life where we literally have access to the world at our fingertips. Whatever dreams and aspirations you have, it is ALL possible.
If you wanted to learn how to play the guitar, for example, all you have to do is jump on the internet and watch a few “how-to” video’s or find a local teacher on sites like YELP. If you wanted to further your education, you can apply for and take classes online RIGHT NOW! If you wanted to build a support group for an important cause, you can easily put together a fan page within minutes and begin building your team. The list can quite literally go on FOREVER!
So what is the difference between successful people and unsuccessful people? It’s simple, they take action and continue to find ways to make it happen, by doing whatever it takes. They throw the excuses out the window. With all this technology, our lives have become much more simpler, but I hear people say they are too busy. The point of MOST technology is for luxury and saving time, how are we even MORE busy than ever?
To me, it boils down to ONE word. PRIORITY. I have written MANY posts on this, but we ALL need the gentle reminder every once in a while. If living out your dream is a priority to YOU, it WILL happen. We know that it CAN happen, but you are the determining factor if it ever WILL happen.
It’s time to put the excuses in the trash, and stand up for your dreams. This time of year (beginning of the school year) wreaks of starting fresh. Take your life to the NEXT level! PUSH the limits and set the tone TODAY! Do 10 times the amount of work today and create your own momentum! Take action, believe and stick with the script. Forget ALL the past doubts and failures, today is the day you are going to PUSH your way into success (however you define it).
Get up and GOOOOOOOO!!!
Let me know (in the comment section) RIGHT NOW, what you are going to do to PUSH yourself to the next level!
To Your Massive Success,
Ps. Keep your eye out for The Motivation Files!!!
What in the world kind of grammatical FAIL title is that? LOL! In all honesty, I was going for the whole “play on words” kind of thing, but I am not so sure about it now. I may be feeding off a little beverage my wife had last night with dinner. It was called “Jamaican Me Happy”. I have no idea why I think that’s so funny.
Anyway I wanted to talk about a topic that has been on my heart the last couple of weeks. It is something I touch on every once in while and I wanted to address it again.
It’s ALL about our experiences and our reaction to them. I want to talk about our PAST…hence the cheesy title.
More and more I am realizing that past event REALLY do happen for a reason. Not to be all cliche or anything, but each time I come to this conclusion, my mind expands. It’s like every time I study my past, it reinforces this old saying…”things happen for a reason”.
Let us take the time now to remind ourselves that the PAST has an EXTREMELY important part in our growth. Spiritually, physically, financially, relational, and educationally, the past is our foundation for how advanced we are in each category.
Okay, I am done with the ‘refresher’! I mentioned that old saying to say this…we have to have the mature ability to reflect on our past (regardless of how painful it can be at times) and use it as a TOOL!
I know it can be hard, but tapping into these experiences will allow us to become more advanced in present and future dealings. The PAST is not in place to stop you or prevent you from achieving your goals, it’s the complete opposite!
Use it to your advantage and apply the lessons as you go along. Write them down…teach them…do something positive with them, but most importantly LEARN from them.
I really DO understand that this is something you heard before, but I find that reminding myself of the basics every once in a while can keep me from making silly mistakes.
That being said, DO NOT hold a grudge on your past because it has lead you up to THIS point…and if you are reading this right now…I have GOOD NEWS! Something GREAT is about to happen in your life. I just feel it in my soul…the tables are about to turn and EVERYTHING that WAS against you, will NOW be in your favor! Supernatural BLESSINGS are coming your way. God knows what you have been experiencing and knows your struggle. Simply KEEP the faith and keep at it! You are CLOSER than you think and your dreams are about to unfold!
Go out there and use your PAST to catapult your dreams into fruition!
To Your Massive Success,
Are things panning out totally different than what you had planned? Do you feel like nothing is going right? Are you feeling a bit discouraged from your lack of results? Do you feel like throwing in the towel and walking away from your latest project?
I know exactly how you feel; I had the same emotions rushing through me just a few months ago! It’s extremely frustrating to have something mapped out and your heart set on achieving a specific goal within a specific timeframe, and it not work out. You keep telling people that what you have is amazing and where you are headed is even better. But the reality is you’re completely unhappy and disappointed in your results.
The worst is when you are trying to put a smile on and tell folks life/business is going well and in the back of your mind your wondering how the hell you’re going to pay your bills. Oh, the façade we build just so people see us in a much better light. We ALL do it…its normal, so don’t think about it too much. AND it is for good reason…we actually do want to live a much better life and attain the results we always dreamed of.
It’s okay to want more. We should be happy for what we have been blessed with, yet have a hunger for more. I mean that’s what will drive us into living extraordinary lives. Recently, I read a personal development book and one of the chapters was titled, “Happy Discontent”. It basically explained that we should be happy and appreciate what we currently have/achieved but simultaneously be discontent with the results; which should push you to continuously pursue your dreams/goals.
So today I am telling you, ALL those feelings of lack you have…it’s absolutely fine, just remember to show gratitude for what you do have and keep hammering away at your dreams. Don’t give up, keep at it! The results will soon come pouring in like they did for me! I just stayed in faith and truly believed in my dreams. Even when I totally burnt out (twice this year), I got back on my feet and went to work on my dream life; it paid off handsomely!
