SUCCESS IS A PROCESS by Jeffery Combs
We all have a desire to achieve some level of success. For some the desire is greater than the average person. Let's face it, everyone wants to be successful but very few are really willing to pay that price of W.E.I.T. (What Ever It Takes). I have assisting entrepreneurs through my seminars, workshops, and personal coaching programs for the past six years and I have found that there are a few key principles that assist people in achieving the levels of success that they deserve.
Success is an attitude. It is a posture that you take that states "I deserve to have it all." Success is attainable to all, yet so few achieve it. Success is a habit and has no real secrets. It all starts with your belief system. Your belief system starts with how you feel about yourself. Your own personal self-esteem is the key ingredient to so much of your success. You must first adopt a personal positive self-image of yourself. (You never get a second chance to make a first impression.) Forgiving yourself, other in your past, past mistakes & failures are paramount in your early journey to success. A key point to remember here is that you attract to your reality who and what you are. When you are positive and feel good about you, you attract like-minded individuals. The same holds true if you are negative in your thought processes. Your thought processes will always determine your bank account of love. It is essential that you learn to forgive, let go, and let go of your past. Many people drag their past into their present, which stops them from ever having a clear vision of their future.
Success is a process, not a payoff. You will pay your ten dollars at the door on your journey to success, and you will find out fast that there are no shortcuts. You will never be able to completely master every detail of your life. Attempting to do so will only lead to frustration. What will make the most difference is becoming the master of a few key principles that will allow you to have the fastest personal growth.
To accomplish this task you will begin to think exponentially rather than incrementally. (THINK BIG - ACT BIG) You must have uncommon thoughts to have uncommon results and a steady consistent plan of action. What I have found in over sixteen years of entrepreneurship is that very few people have a plan of action. "When you fail to plan, you are planning to fail." By "Plan of Action", what I am talking about is your goals down on paper where they are visible and you can get your hands on them to monitor your progress. You also have to have a very precise clear mental picture of where you are going on your journey to success. Make your goals reachable and realistic, yet big enough that you have to stretch to reach them. Along with goal setting, I recommend that you have a daily plan of action (Method of Operation) in place that you work from daily. Donít over-promise to yourself. Put down on paper exactly what it is that you will do. This will allow you to hold yourself accountable. Every night before you go to bed look over your daily method of operation and ask yourself how accountable you were to yourself today.
In working with over one thousand in the past six years as a personal coach, I have worked with people on developing a seven day game plan and then working it for four consecutive weeks (one FULL month). This teaches people how to become consistent. Consistent effort over a period of time coupled with personal growth will create consistent results.
This process of success will happen when you take consistent action, let go of your past, feel good about you and continually improve your internal communication. ---------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------- Jeffery Combs is an internationally recognized trainer, speaker, and author
