It’s new year now, so I’m supposed to write some motivational stuff here for my readers. But the truth is, you don’t need a “new year” to make decisions. You don’t need a new year to draft your goals and so on – you can do that on ANY day.
Frankly, “new year” has become an excuse for many people to give excuse to themselves for not wanting to take action. I mean, success equals work. Everybody knows that – if you want success, you have to work for it. It ain’t happening by sitting down, closing your eyes and just doing visualization, manifestation and sort like that. Those stuff do help (a lot) because it directs you to take action but they do not truly get things done.
Instead of motivational talk, today, I like to share with you some of my success formulas. If you’re going to get into action for success this year, maybe you can use them too…
1. Focus. I know, you know about this. You’ve read about it. You’ve heard about it. With so many opportunities happening in this world, it’s really hard to stay focus. My formula? I’ll list out all of the things which I would like to do and choose only 3 of them. One of them has to be something that create today’s cashflow (that can give me the most income for the least work) and the other one has to be long-term success.
2. Leverage. To achieve success, you’ll need to know how to leverage. So when I set on to a goal, I’ll always ensure that I have existing leverage (could be people, money, resources, etc) to see it through.
3. Do Something, Start Something. If you learn of something (trading, real estate, MLM, internet marketing, whatever) and you think it’s doable, do it. Start it. Yes, you’ll probably fail or did not achieve the success that you’re expecting. The thing is, that’s just the process of success that you and me have to accept. It’s very unlikely any dude will hit home run the first time he does something! That’s the problem with most people’s mindset – they forgot about this basic “rule”. They want to get it “right” the first round so they do more “research” or try to improve a proven system (again, ironic because a system is already proven and doesn’t needs to be modified). Also, make sure to find the right mentor. That changes everything for your success.
4. Be Fearless. The biggest enemy that you have, whether you know it consciously or not, is probably fear. Don’t worry – that’s normal. I have that problem as well. I’m only human. There are times when fear eats up on me when I lose money. Note that being fearless is not about positive thinking. Positive thinking is like… someone who’s in debts and keep on saying that he’s still living prosperously. You know what I mean? To be fearless is to be well equip with knowledge how to achieve success so that you can predict your future confidently, despite whatever challenges that you’re now facing. It’s all about having certainty.
With that said, I want to take this opportunity to wish you a wonderful year for your success in 2013.
