Success is the most sought after need in human psychology. In fact, this has been true for centuries. The most popular model that helps us achieve our daily success habits and understand this concept is Maslow’s hierarchy of Needs.

We obviously crave achievement.

But…

Why is it that few people are massively successful where the majority of others fall short?

Good question! I’m glad you asked.

The short answer is that desire isn’t enough. There is more to the story.

For example:

I’ve had the desire to be an entrepreneur since I was a teenager. Why did it take me eight years before I had any real success?

Although I did some things right, sneaking into an art exhibit to score some free wine and goofing off with my friends wasn’t getting me any further ahead (even if it was hella fun).

I didn’t have the discipline, focus, and level of commitment required to reach the next level. Frankly, I wasn’t doing the right things consistently.

I had to become the person I aspired to be, not the person I was. And that’s true for anybody.

Essentially, you need to make drastic changes to your mindset and your habits.

That’s exactly what we’re talking about today; developing the necessary daily habits that are essential for life-changing success…

Doing these simple things will allow you to flourish. You will become more positive, laser-focused, and ready to attack life with more passion and energy on a daily basis. Adopting these success habits into your life will completely change how you think.

Let’s dig in…

1. Meditation & Self-Hypnosis

meditation and self-hypnosis is a daily success habit that strengthens the mind

There are two different types of meditation.

The first, which we’ll call meditation, is more focused on mindfulness, concentration, and being present. It’s about creating emotional positivity by “shutting off your brain” and paying attention to the breath.

This is commonly put into practice in certain types of yoga retreats, martial arts, holistic healing, and is deeply embedded in eastern culture.

The second form of meditation is self-hypnosis. This is what I’ve been practicing for years. Self-hypnosis or guided meditation is really just a form of heightened concentration combined with the use of autosuggestion.

Autosuggestion is literally anything we tell ourselves to do with our words whether we realize it or not.

For example:

You’ve been complaining about how you’re sick and tired of something (job, spouse, doing the dishes, etc.). Then all of a sudden you come down with a cold and have really low energy levels.

This is no coincidence, you literally made yourself sick and tired by using autosuggestion. This type of subconscious behavior is discussed in the popular books Think and Grow Rich and The Secret.

They refer to autosuggestion by its more popular name, The Law of Attraction.

The point of Self-hypnosis is to put you in a mentally and physically relaxed state to allow for autosuggestion to take place. This is necessary for the use of affirmations to change you by installing positive habits or eliminating negative ones.

Practicing it consistently will allow you to be more productive.

The more you do this, the more you’ll realize the power behind your words. Both meditation and self-hypnosis can help set goals and alter your habits over time.

My Recommendation: 

Try meditation and self-hypnosis, they are both good practices. See which one you prefer and do this at least once a day.

2. Surround Yourself With Positive People

positive people successfully working together

Having people in your life that can motivate and encourage you who are on the same path isn’t just good advice; it’s necessary.

If your goal, for example, is to be a successful real estate agent, surround yourself with other positive people in the industry. This will allow you to exchange ideas, network, brainstorm, and possibly even collaborate.

If done correctly, this will foster rapid growth and collapse time frames. Networking in this manner should get the results you want in less time.

You’ll also have a source of constant motivation by finding others who are just as passionate as you are in your field.

I’m currently in Chiang Mai (at the time of this writing) which is the hub for digital nomads and online entrepreneurs.  I’ve honestly never felt so inspired. I’m learning a lot from the network of people who travel the world and work online.

My results have been positively affected by this environment as a result.

Imagine your results by taking this approach. You may think to yourself “what was I thinking before?” If you have access to such a network, take full advantage of it.

And remember it’s a two-way street. Like anything else in life, you’ll get out of it exactly what you put in.

If you don’t yet have access to a community of like-minded people, it’s time to start building one.

My Recommendation: 

Join a few networking events in your area of interest and select the one that is the best fit for you. Network with this group at least once a week.

Important Note: These events can occur either online or live and in person. Since COVID-19 occurred, more of these events are available online and popping up everywhere on any topic or category imaginable. It is my recommendation to use the internet as a resource until we have recovered from this global crisis.

3. Watch Inspiring or Motivational Videos

watching positive and inspirational videos daily is a great way to boost your motivation

Finding motivation is essential to success.

Why?

Well…

It’s simple really. Every day when you walk out that front door of yours, you will be hit with a massive surge of negativity.

There are thousands of marketing messages constantly thrown at us. These communications are subtly attempting to convince you that you (or someone you know) are anxious, depressed, in danger, etc. All in an effort to sell their products.

And don’t forget the endless negative messages that are presented as “news” daily.

Don’t believe me?

Think back to the last positive thing you saw on the news…

Can’t remember?

It’s because it’s quite rare in the sea of disaster, corruption, and incompetence that plagues our computer screens, television sets, and radio stations regularly.

So how do we fix this?

We need to overcompensate by feeding our brains with positive messages.

One powerful motivation source that changes your entire attitude is watching YouTube videos. Not just any videos though…

These videos are designed to emote a feeling of empowerment and are action-packed with positivity.

Having a morning routine helps.

I spend the first 20 minutes of my mornings watching these inspiring videos. This is done while drinking my coffee, before reading and after listening to a guided meditation. Then it’s time to hit the gym.

This powerful daily success habit is a great way to tap into your emotions and help to increase productivity and the way you see the world.

My Recommendation:

Watch a few motivational videos in the mornings to kickstart your day, preferably just before a workout. Do this at least every couple of days to amplify your drive and motivation.

Resources:

4. Work Out Regularly

working out is a success habit that will improve focus and concentration

There is certainly truth to the old saying “a healthy body breeds a healthy mind.”

There are many benefits to moving your body every day. Having some sort of consistent fitness routine; yoga, running, lifting weights, etc. will allow you to reap the rewards of your efforts.

This makes it easier to focus and stay motivated on your life goals

After a few workouts, you’ll see a noticeable difference in your confidence. Not to mention the added health benefits of better sleep, more energy, and improved memory & flexibility.

Working out at least 3 times a week can do wonders for your focus, and therefore, your productivity.

If you’re not already doing something active on a consistent basis, start now!

See what happens after a few weeks and compare the results.

I’m certain that you’ll be happy you did.

My Recommendation: 

Schedule a workout routine at least three times a week for a minimum of 20 minutes each.  You can find some beginner ideas for your routine in several different places.

Regardless of where you find your information, do some research, and find something that works for you and start immediately! Then, you can build on that as you progress.

5. Find Your Passion

Find Your Passion by using these daily success habits

So many people go through life accepting a job, house, car, and even a relationship that they feel obligated to stay with out of necessity. You can either design the life you want or accept the life you get and simply exist.

If you’re reading this blog, I’m assuming you’d prefer not to settle for a life of mediocrity.

There are a lot of people in today’s society that are simply lost without any real purpose or direction in life.

This is why constant motivation, positivity, and meditation are so important. They will give you a heightened sense of focus and mental clarity.

I’d really like to inspire you to find your passion in life…

Imagine waking up every day ready to progress toward your ultimate goal instead of scarfing down breakfast, chugging some coffee, and rushing out the door just to make a paycheck. As the old adage goes “find something you love to do and you’ll never work a day in your life.”

Don’t allow money to be your motivation either. Let your passion drive you to success and money will be the added benefit.

I accidentally discovered my passion when I found Digital Marketing. When I learned how to travel and work remotely, it was a total trifecta of business, passion, and happiness.

Whether you decide to make an income traveling and working from anywhere in the world or you decide to pursue your passions at home, examine your options and give yourself a purpose by exploring what truly makes you happy.

My Recommendation:

Explore your options. Find something that allows you to do what you absolutely love and genuinely makes you happy. In other words; a business or hobby that sets your soul on fire. The money will come naturally due to your passion.

Combine your passion with something you can do online from anywhere, and you’ll be able to pursue travel while working remotely. This route isn’t for everyone (you can also work from home), but I would like to inspire you to reap the benefits of travel as well.

6. Plan & Organize Your Time

Planning ahead is a very important daily success habit that will allow you to reach new heights

Planning may sound boring, but it’s absolutely essential to success.

Why?

Consider these statistics:

The overwhelming majority of people, about 77%, fail at completing their new year’s resolutions (or almost any goal for that matter). Most of them give up in under two weeks and only 5% see their goals all the way through.

What happened?

They failed to plan.

Consider this quote:

“For tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today.”

– African Proverb

Or this one…

“Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.”

– Abraham Lincoln

And one more to drive the point home:

“The secret to getting ahead is getting started. The secret to getting started is breaking your complex overwhelming tasks into small manageable tasks, and then starting on the first one.

– Mark Twain

I mentioned before that you can either live your life by design or settle for whatever comes your way. And I meant it. 

Think about it; Success isn’t an accident. It’s methodically planned out step-by-step.

Let’s examine the main goals people set at the start of a new year. They typically want to:

  • Lose weight
  • Read more books
  • Increase their personal income or business revenue
  • Get out of debt
  • Create a meaningful relationship with a significant other

There are many others, but you get the point.

You can’t accidentally make a million dollars.

You can’t accidentally read 50 books this year

You can’t accidentally pay off your $87,543 worth of debt.

These are real goals accomplished by successful people who planned for their achievement.

These things take effort, purposeful intent, and a plan.

My Recommendation:

Planning may seem daunting but it’s not. If you frontload the work and outline your major goals and break them down into small steps, anything is possible. Productivity happens not by taking major leaps but by baby-stepping it.

Resources:

7. Set Your Goals

write down your goals and update them frequently to soar to new heights

Goal setting is an absolute necessity in life. The reason why the masses are lost with no real purpose or direction is that they’ve never taken the time to ask themselves what they want out of life.

Consider the following questions:

  • What is my ultimate goal in life?
  • What would allow me to live my life’s purpose?
  • Am I being fulfilled in my daily work in achieving my purpose?
  • Where am I heading?
  • What are my dreams and aspirations?

Are you waking up motivated and excited to start your day? Have you asked yourself these questions?  If not, there is never a better time to start than right now!

This is why so many people end up settling in life. They’ve never asked themselves the right questions or taken the time to set their goals. In the absence of getting the right answers, they end up following the typical “recipe for success.”

This isn’t only because everyone else is doing it, but because we’re conditioned to do these things before we’re even able to speak.

My Recommendation:

If you haven’t already done so, take some time this week and do some goal setting. Figure out what you want out of life and work your way backward. Set weekly, monthly, and annual goals to get them accomplished.

Resources:

Michael Hyatt wrote a Beginner’s guide to goal setting to get you started. If you really want to go in-depth on goal setting, I recommend the following books:

8. Listen to a Podcast

podcasts are a great for inspiration and finding a path to success

Podcasts are a great way to find inspiration, motivation, and even find something you’re passionate about. Finding the right ones can even take you in a whole new direction in life.

Why?

Well, it allows you to overlap your time.

Have a long commute to work? Skip the music and listen to a podcast.

Like books, podcasts allow you to learn and grow. Moreover, they can also help shape your mindset and find your direction.

Actually, the reason I started building my business is because of listening to an episode of one of my favorite podcasts, The Side Hustle Show.

My Recommendation:

Find 1-2 podcasts that motivate and inspire you. It should be something that focuses on your goals and passions. For example, I like traveling, poker, and business. So I might listen to a podcast one of these topics once a week (or whatever fits your schedule).

Resources:

If you’re having trouble finding one on your area of interest, you can also do a search on podcasts.com.

Here are some of my favorites to get you started:

NOTE: This should be supplemental to your goals; don’t get stuck in overconsumption mode or information overload.

9. Read a Book

reading books is a daily success habit that will expand your mind

Reading (non-fiction) books has many benefits:

  • They strengthen your mind
  • Help you to develop your skills
  • They aid in making a major breakthrough or transformation

This happened to me when I first read Rich Dad, Poor Dad when I was 17 years old. This book changed my whole mindset and drove me to pursue investing and entrepreneurship in the first place.

Reading can also be a source of inspiration. Consuming knowledge on topics that interest you may move you to implement what you’ve learned.

This is how I got my start in eCommerce. I realized you can sell tons of products completely unrelated to each other on the world’s best online marketplace simply by reading a book.

My Recommendation:

Browse the books section of Amazon and see if you can find a topic that interests you.

or better yet…

Go to your local bookstore and get out of the house. This will allow you to get a feel for what genre interests you the most since you can wander around and touch and feel the books.

This is something I do regularly and it has helped me grow immensely. I make it a goal to read at least one new book each month.

10. Start or Attend a Mastermind Group

mastermind groups and planning are essential to success

I’m a firm believer in the fact that “you are a direct reflection of the company you keep”…

If you want to progress significantly towards your goals, a mastermind group is definitely the way to go. But what is a mastermind group anyway?

The term “mastermind group” was originally coined by Napolean Hill circa 1925. It’s covered more in-depth in his 1937 classic book Think and Grow Rich

Some quotes from the man himself:

“When two people get together, a third mind, the Master Mind, is created.”

“A friendly alliance with one or more persons who will encourage one to follow through with both plan and purpose.”

“[to] Maintain perfect harmony between yourself and every member of your mastermind group. If you fail to carry out this instruction to the letter, you may expect to meet with failure. The master mind principle cannot obtain where perfect harmony does not prevail.”

“No mind is complete by itself. It needs contact and association with other minds to grow and expand.”

– Napolean Hill

Why is this important?

It speaks to the level of importance in that, as Aristotle said, “the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.”

I don’t know about you, but this really hits home for me; it addresses something that’s missing in today’s society, except for those who understand the power of this concept:

a sense of community.

For whatever reason, we have gotten away from this ideal over the past few decades.

This comes back to surrounding yourself with positive, like-minded people.

As an example, you can join a [mastermind] group of web developers if you’re learning how to code. A real estate group when working on your investment portfolio. A group of bloggers when taking your content marketing to the next level.

I think you get the idea.

You can exchange ideas, learn from each other, and grow together. If you’re stuck on something or not sure what the next step might be, you have someone who’s been there before who can help you out. It allows the individuals to balance their strengths and weaknesses to that of the entire mastermind group.

In Chiang Mai, I’m a member of a large group of successful entrepreneurs. If I’m not sure how to do something, I’ve got tons of information at my disposal. Not to mention, it’s a great source of inspiration and idea generation.

My Recommendation:

See if you can find a group in your local area. Search on meetup.com for a group that actively meets about a topic or skill you’re looking to improve. You may need to filter through the attendees to find your mastermind group.

Resources:

11. Take an Online Course

taking an online course is a great way to meet your daily success habits and learn something new

I’m a firm believer in acquiring new skills to catapult your success to extraordinary results. Oftentimes you hear entrepreneurs struggle with issues such as:

  • “I don’t know how or where to start”
  • “I’m not sure what I should be doing”
  • “I Want to do X but I don’t know how”

Guess what?

In the information age, you don’t have to know!

Why?

Because you can learn!

With the advent of information products and online courses on sites such as Udemy, Teachable, and other similar avenues of digital learning, this is no longer an excuse.

You can learn about pretty much anything from how to feed your cat to how to build an empire…

From affiliate marketing to Zoom video conferencing…

If you can dream it up, there is probably an online course that teaches you how to excel at it.

My Recommendation:

Go to any e-learning platform and look for courses that may interest you. Read the reviews and take a course that will help you develop a marketable skill. This will not only allow you to pursue something you’re passionate about but will also give you another revenue stream should you ever need it.

12. Make a To-do List Find a Productivity Tool

productivity tools are part of the planning process and seeing the big picture

Okay…

In regards to productivity tools, let’s first address the elephant in the room:

The to-do list.

While I used to recommend this tactic for productivity, I’ve come to the realization that it isn’t a productive tactic at all.

Why?

Let’s examine the following about to-do lists:

  • instead of getting reduced, the list gets longer over time
  • typically, you don’t complete everything
  • the list creates a sense of overwhelm
  • your tasks generally roll over into the next day
  • instead of celebrating your wins, you feel shame about incomplete tasks

There are actually many more psychological reasons this type of workflow isn’t effective. I’ll cover this in a separate post.

For now, just understand this…

In general, to-do lists make you busy, not productive.

How do we fix this?

The first thing we need to do is stop creating busywork. In order to do that, you need to recognize 2 things:

  1. Not all tasks are created equal.
  2. Being process-oriented creates better results.

Instead of trying to tackle your entire to-do list, create a success list:

“To-do lists can tyrannize your days with tasks if you don’t vet them. You feel an obligation to do everything on the list, rather than the things that really matter. You should have a “success” list, rather than a to-do list”

Gary Keller, The ONE Thing

What does this mean?

Focus on your 1-3 most important tasks for the day. The ones that will get you the most results and move the needle forward.

Also…

Instead of just stating the fact that it needs to get done, focus on the process.

There are actually many productivity tools on the market that allow you to do this.

Personally, I use monday.com. There are other tools, but I recommend this for a few reasons, it allows you to:

  • Get a high-level overview of your work and stay focused on the bigger picture
  • Automate manual tasks and streamline processes to drive efficiency and save time
  • Zoom into the process and seamlessly keep track of every detail.
  • Integrate with a lot of other tools keeping everything organized in one place

Being organized is a huge key to being successful. Trust me, I get distracted by shiny objects all the time, but when it comes to staying focused and improving your quality of life, a little organization goes a long way.

Something as simple as a productivity tool can really help you increase your productivity and be your guide to progressively hitting your milestones on the way to achieving your ultimate goals.

Monday Board Views

It doesn’t matter which tool you use as long as you can focus on your main priorities and use a process-oriented method. If it declutters your life, even better!

My Recommendation:

Find a productivity tool that will allow you to streamline your workflow process and get more done in less time.

Resources:

13. Get a Coach or Mentor

business coach mentoring client to use new daily habits

I have always said in order to be successful at anything you need three things:

  1. Theory
  2. Application
  3. Coaching.

The reason for this is simple. Once you have the education (theory) and experience (application), getting a coach or mentor is only going to collapse your time frames and allow you to achieve your goals more rapidly.

When I first started my Amazon FBA business, I simply sought out somebody who had already done what it was that I was trying to accomplish and followed in their footsteps. Regardless of what you’re trying to achieve, there’s never a need to reinvent the wheel, the foundation has already been set for you.

Obviously, you’re going to want to do your due diligence if you’re doing a paid mentorship or coaching program. You’ll want to find someone who is active in the field you’re pursuing.

For example:

If you’re learning how to invest in the stock market, then the person mentoring you should be actively investing and winning in the stock market. If their primary source of income is teaching other people to invest, I’d look elsewhere.

Hiring a Coach or Mentor is an investment that will always pay itself back at least a few times over.

My Recommendation:

Find a group, community, or resource (online or in-person) and surround yourself with other successful people in the field or endeavor you’re looking to pursue (music, e-commerce, blogging, etc.).

Hang out where they hang out. Network and soak up as much information as you can from these groups. Just be selective in which ones you choose because they are not all created equal.

Some will have no vested interest in your success. Others will give you the practical advice and motivation you may need and have a genuine concern for helping you thrive.

Another option with all of the resources available to us these days is to mentor yourself. Blogs, podcasts, books, and courses can be great mentors. Whereas meetups, events, and conferences are terrific places to find a potential coach or mentor.

Resources:

14. Find a Hobby

hobbies will help you get some rest and rejuvenation, an important element to help you focus on your success

Although activity can fuel success to an extent, it’s unrelated to productivity. Anybody seeking out any level of success needs to find the proper balance between work and play.

Willpower has a limited battery life but can be recharged with some downtime. It’s a limited but renewable resource.

– Gary Keller

“Willpower” can easily be exchanged with “work” because it takes one to do the other. Time and time again, I’ve seen would-be successful entrepreneurs fall to overworking themselves without enough rest.

The cure to burnout is a preemptive strike of proper rest and relaxation. Filling your downtime with a passionate hobby can allow you to maintain the focus necessary to survive and thrive.

Personally, I like to maintain a plethora of hobbies so I’m never bored.

Here are some of the hobbies that help to provide balance and allow me to do focused, productive work when I return from some much needed downtime:

  • Adventure Travel (Skydiving, Cliffjumping, etc.)
  • Hiking
  • Playing poker
  • Exercising (Running or Lifting Weights)
  • Learning a Language (I’m currently working on Mandarin)
  • Reading
  • Writing (In case you didn’t know)
  • Ping Pong/Table Tennis
  • Meditation

What about you?

These are my hobbies, but yours may be different.

Have you found something that gives you a break from the daily grind? Or are you on the verge of burnout?

Hobbies are a fantastic way to find inner peace before returning to life as usual.

My Recommendation:

We sometimes make excuses as to why we’re too busy to take this much needed break. Put your work and projects aside to take some very important “me time.”

Pick a hobby and practice/do it 1-2 times a week. You’ll be surprised at how much your mental health improves.

Resources:

15. Eat Healthy 
eat health is an essential daily habit that will boost your energy levels

Out of all of the daily success habits, eating healthy is one that can make a drastic change in your energy levels (and your life).

Not too long ago I eliminated processed food, cut back on refined grains and sugar, and began portioning my meals. There was an enormous difference in how I felt and what I got accomplished.

I’ve tried so many different things throughout the years but I feel like this works best and allows me to be disciplined.

But understand this:

What works for me, may not work for you.

It might.

The only way to find out, however, is by experimenting.

By simply changing your eating habits:

  • You’ll look and feel better
  • Be more confident
  • Have higher energy levels
  • Make a noticeable boost in productivity.

The point is eating healthy and feeling good will help you accomplish your goals with more determination.

My Recommendation:

Do some research and find a diet that works for you. Remember that every “body” is different and what’s popular or what worked for someone else may not work for you. Once you’ve found it, implement it into your life by executing a weekly meal plan and sticking to it.

Discipline is essential here so give yourself an incentive by coming up with a reward for every milestone you hit without cheating on your diet (1 week, 3 months. etc).

Resources:

16. Consistent Self Development

constant, non-stop personal development is a key success factor to reaching your goals

By now I would hope you’ve realized that the theme of all these new daily success habits you’re adopting is to create motivation, inspiration, drive, and ultimately give you a purpose in life.

In other words, you want to be developing yourself through consistent self-improvement and education which in turn will produce the skills and motivation necessary for you to thrive in any field.

Constant self-development is what separates the winners from the losers and the wildly successful from the average or mediocre.

If you’re reading this I’m assuming you don’t need much convincing, but this is something very near and dear to my heart. I owe everything I am to learning in this manner.

The key is consistency. Once you stop it’s very easy to shift your mindset back to where it was and to lose sight of your goals. Don’t do it! Stay focused and you can accomplish anything.

It’s time to evolve.

If your not growing, you’re dying

-Tony Robbins

My Recommendation:

The key to self-development is to constantly progress and to continue moving forward. I recommend doing the following activities at least once a week (preferably more) in order to sharpen your skills and to develop your mind:

  • Wake up early
  • Meditate
  • Listen to a podcast
  • Do a few modules/lessons from an online course (improve your skills)
  • Read a (non-fiction) book
  • Exercise (run, workout, do yoga, etc.)

The outcome should give you a driven and positive mindset.  Which brings me to my next point…

17. Eliminate Negativity

eliminate negativity; it can be detrimaental to your success and your mindset

As I mentioned, we are exposed to negative influences every time we decide to leave the house. Some of these influences, such as the media, can even reach us without having to leave the comfort of our homes.

So what do we do?

Hide in the basement in complete and utter fear for the rest of our lives?

I think not!

Mindset is absolutely everything…

Just as it’s important to have positive influences in your life, it’s equally (or more) important to eliminate the success-crippling negative influences in your life as well.

This includes any negative:

  • People: the whiners, complainers, dream crushers, and anyone trying to hold you back.
  • Media: there are negative messages in music, TV, movies, and especially the news.
  • Thinking: if you have a tendency to beat yourself up by using negative-self talk, stop it immediately.

It’s been documented that people who watch the news are way more depressed than those that don’t. Cutting out this habit by itself will make a drastic difference in your mental health.

It’s also important to be cognizant of the way we talk to ourselves.

If we don’t have a rock-solid mindset about our dreams and goals, it’s just not gonna happen. At least not at the level you might expect. Talk to yourself in a way that will keep you focused and keep your belief system in check.

For example:

Saying “I know my business will be successful” or “this is my 12-week plan on how I’m going to do it.” (it helps to have a plan) is infinitely better than saying “I’m not sure what’ll happen but I’ll give it a try” or even worse, “I can’t do this.”

Negative self-talk can be detrimental to your accomplishments, avoid it at all costs.

My Recommendation:

In order to rid yourself of the negativity in your life, just keep it REAL:

  • Replace negative self-talk with self-loving positivity
  • Eliminate mainstream media
  • Alienate yourself from the negative people in your life
  • Limit entertainment until you’ve created a strong, positive mindset (Music, Television, Movies, etc.)

Resources:

18. Take Action

taking action is a necessary daily success habit if you want to succeed

I’ve saved the best for last because I think this is the most important point when it comes to daily success habits. Everything else would be for nothing if you don’t actually implement what you learn. So many people have a HUGE fear of the unknown.

Since they don’t know what to expect, they stay right where they are; in their cozy little comfort zone. You know the place where there’s no growth happening and your dreams continue to linger in your head until you step out of it?

Yeah, that place!

So many of us get stuck in information overload acquiring more and more knowledge because we’re afraid to take the first step. I’d much prefer to take action and know absolutely nothing and fail every step of the way than to acquire all of my knowledge and completely understand every last intricacy of what I’m learning before applying it.

After all, knowledge isn’t power. The APPLICATION of knowledge is power. You can learn until you’re blue in the face, but you will also learn far more from failing than you will from everything going perfectly according to plan.

In reality, nothing goes according to plan and you must adapt. No more hesitation, procrastination, or second-guessing yourself or your dreams and goals.

If you’re going to do something, go after it with everything you have and TAKE ACTION!

When?

Not now…

But RIGHT NOW!

I certainly didn’t know everything before starting my business, but I’m glad I didn’t. It’s been an amazing process and I can attribute everything I’ve learned and the success I’ve had to taking action instead of waiting until I knew everything.

So go ahead and build that business, lose that weight, take that trip, write that book, run that marathon. Stay focused, don’t lose sight of your goals, and most important of all, enjoy the journey on the road to success!

My Recommendation:

  • Start with your ultimate goal

  • Adapt & learn as you go
  • START RIGHT NOW despite your fear
  • Celebrate your victories no matter how small they may seem
  • Live in the moment and enjoy the process
