One of the most powerful motivational tools is the ability to visualise your goal or dream.
This goes way beyond having an idea of what you want to accomplish, but it means to have a detailed, play by play blue print of your goal.
For example, if you want to start a business a great way to motivate yourself to do all the necessary steps is to delegate a day and time to develop your dream.
Success loves preparation. If the perfect opportunity presented itself today, would you be ready? It’s better to be ready and not have an opportunity, then to have an opportunity and not be ready.
To succeed, you must be ready when opportunity comes. Spend your time preparing for success, when your opportunity comes, you’ll be glad you did.
All failures know that success is simply a matter of luck, they know it’s just a matter of being at the right place at the right time, they know with assurance that success is directly linked to good ole fashion chance.
However, those who have succeeded know that success is directly and proportionally linked to work. Even an amazing strategy can’t guarantee success. The most practical, beautiful, workable philosophy in the world won’t work – if you won’t.
You have to put in the time. However, when you put in the time, it makes success all the more sweet. When you come from “behind” and do the impossible, it makes success as sweet as a honeycomb. I believe the greater the handicap, the greater the triumph.
Never forget the golden rule, Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. That’s the key to success. Serve your clients as you would have them serve you. Meet their needs as you would have them meet your needs. Give them prices that you would want to pay, exceed their expectations in a way that you would want your expectations to be exceeded.
When you follow the golden rule, you open the door to success.
If you don’t believe in your abilities, don’t be surprised if no one else does either. Your negative thoughts about yourself send a signal throughout the world that others pick up on and respond accordingly.
But, when you believe in yourself and your potential, people pick up that signal, and they will treat you according to how they believe, you believe, you should be treated. Did you get that?
To be successful you must be a great leader. There’s probably nothing more difficult than being a great leader.
It’s easy to be selfish, it’s easy to only be concerned with your needs, your wants and your desires. But to succeed you have to lead!
You have to do what’s best for the people; you must bring the best out of those in whom you lead.
When you really lead, you will succeed.
