Pieces of Success

Patience is the key to success. Pace yourself and work to build your best work piece by piece.

Focus on the skills and habits of success rather than the end goal. The habits are now and the results are part of your future.

Believe that your vision is possible. You have to be the catalyst for your best future.

The approach you take to achieve your vision is totally up to you. Segment the journey into habits that form the greater vision. Connected pieces make the vision whole.

Capable of Success

Success maybe more about being capable of the vision than simply achieving it.

Sometimes, we focus on the end goal, and bypass the knowledge and skill set that make you able to achieve the success that you have envisioned.

Success is the byproduct of commitment and hard work. It is defined at the personal level; it is acquired after sacrifice and persistence against all odds.

Work smart and learn something new each day. Practice and solve your problems scientifically. Measure your results and use data to help you discover the keys to success. Work on being capable of the vision.

Comfort and Safety

If it feels comfortable and safe go further. Move to the edge of your efforts. Pour everything into your growth, your vision, your journey to great things. Everything else is just the warm-up. Get going and do not look back.

Changes

Change your grip on your world. Change the points where you’re holding onto negative experiences as your identity.

Change your grasp of new knowledge and tech that can make your job easier. Change your routine if it’s not serving your purpose and liberating your spirit.

The caveat is, your goal shouldn’t be change for change’s sake. Improve your capability to handle the journey as your step into success.

Strategies

Wasting away in your own imagination is trending down. Dig into your awesomeness and strategize for greatness.

The Reward

Waiting for the perfect day to start your journey is waiting for a day that may never arrive. Your best option is to start the 5K while no one is watching. Start the book when it’s noisy and there is no opportunity for peace. Get going when the weather is cloudy and a there is a 100% chance for rain.

Starting without fanfare and ceremony makes the beautiful days easier and the tough times more valuable when you conquer the challenge.

As we hit the third week of the New Year, it’s important to know, your new habits and your new focus usually reach the crossroads of choice. The place where you choose to continue to greatness or return to the same mediocre habits.

Take the pathway that leads to your best results. The journey and the battle for success are the greatest rewards.

Problem Solving

Successful people dig-in and solve their own problems. Whether it’s increasing your revenue stream or completing your literary masterpiece the time, effort, and energy you put in to complete your work is your most precious resource.

Don’t waste your life (time x effort x energy) on fads or in a race to become an average and mundane brand that brands average distractions to keep people average.  Offer more value, more connections, more creativity than anyone else. Be the artist who creates their dreams and solves the problems that change the world.

Believe that you can do it and stay focused until the task is done. The alternative, pecking and scrolling the hours away into your cell phone isn’t as awesome getting out there and completing the challenge.
