Here are the 4 Basic Concepts to Achieving Success – explained.Number 4

  • What are you reading, listening to and how are you enriching your brain?
    • Listen to those who have what you want.  That means a mentor, success coach or someone who has achieved success.
    • Achieve success in what you read or books on tape.  Instead of listening to music while you drive, switch to motivation audio, CD or recorded book.
      • Suggested books:  “It’s Not About You,” “Outwitting the Devil,” “Think and Grow Rich,” “Three Feet from Gold” are a few suggestions.  For more book suggestions, comment on this post and I’ll be happy to share other book titles with you.Success
  • Are you Teachable & for How Long?
    • It means are you willing to keep an open mind? Are you willing to accept change? Are you willing to give up something to achieve success?  How much time are you willing to invest? Are you willing to make a financial investment in yourself?
      • Foolishness is doing the same actions day in and day out thinking you’ll achieve a different result.
      • In order for things to change in your life, you first must change the way you think, do and speak.
  • Continue to have a willingness to learn even when you think “I got it.”  When your mind says “I got it” it slows your ability to keep an open mind and allow information to flow in.  Rather that small statement hinders your ability to learn and retain information.
  • Your Training and Life Balance Scale
    • Think of the left side as your ‘why” and the right side as your “how” you plan to get there
      • Your why equals your thought process, goals, dreams, energy and motivation.
        • Your why is most important as it’s comes back to your thoughts, language and teachability – the words used in your everyday language.  Keep it positive, upbeat and actionable.
      • Your how equals action steps, strategy and plans.
        • Don’t allow yourself to worry about how you will get there.  Your why and positive thoughts will guide you on the how.
        • Overthinking the how tends to poison your thoughts and negative words enter the brain which derail you into believing it’s not possible.
        • In the end the how will work itself out with your positive, upbeat thoughts and desire to succeed.
  • Take in New Information
    • Daily positive affirmations.
    • Repetition – doing it over and over.
    • Observing others doing what you want.
    • Being around those who have what you want.

Remember:  If you continue to think the way you’ve always thought, you’ll continue to get what you’ve always got.
