One of my mentors recently wrote an article called “Seven Tips That Will Help You In Everything You Do”, and it was spot on, so I thought I’d share it with you today.
Number one, stop blaming your circumstances.
I guarantee you there are other people in similar or far worse circumstances than you, doing really, really well. So just follow their lead.]
Number two, stop blaming other people.
As soon as you can take responsibility for your success, you’re ahead of 95% of society. Trust me.
Number three, be persistent.
Real success doesn’t come easily. If you stick with something and you work your plan, you’ll get where you want it to be. I think this is one of the number one things that have helped me become successful because I am persistent in doing the little things consistently over time, where other people will just give up on them.
Number four, do what you should be doing.
Your actions are either moving you closer or they’re moving you farther from your goals, and be aware of how you’re spending your time.
Number five, invest in others.
Spend time every day trying to add value to your clients. For me, it’s my clients, it’s my family, it’s my colleagues, it’s my friends, my associates. I’m always trying to give value to them and add value because I know it will come back to me a hundredfold.
Number six, work on you every day.
And if you’re watching this video, you’re doing that right now, so I commend you for doing that. Look, seminars, books, audios, Masterminds, coaching, you can always improve. You’re either growing or you’re dying. I always carve out at least five, 10, 15 minutes, wherever I can get time: driving in my car, folding laundry, doing dishes, pop in my AirPods, turn on my phone, listen to an audiobook, listen to a podcast. There’s always that mindless downtime you should be using working on you and improving you.
Number seven, focus on solutions and not problems.
No whining, griping or complaining. Once you’ve identified an obstacle, devote all of your energy to overcome it. So take a minute, digest these seven tips. If you live them, most everything else in life will get a little bit better and make it a lot easier.
