So often when we hear an expert talking about success, we wish we knew their secret success factors. We wish there was a key that held all the “magic,” and that once we held it we could unleash our own success whether that means being happier or knowing how to become rich.
But here is the secret that they haven’t told you:
The key to success isn’t about over-hauling your entire life. The key to unleashing your success lies in your ability to approach everyday life in a different way. It’s about taking action, being consistent and never giving up. It’s about ending the treadmill of stress and frustration and replacing it with manageable habits that you can do each and every day.
Success doesn’t happen instantly, there isn’t one connection, one idea or one “break” that will take you there. Success comes from consistently taking action in 3 key areas of your life. And when you focus on these 3 success factors, a new world will open up for you. You’ll know how to be happier, healthier, wealthier…you’ll also know how to become rich.
Success Factor #1: The Last 5 Minutes of Your Day
While this may not seem significant, the last 5 minutes of your day are CRITICAL to tomorrow’s achievements and your overall ability to find success in your life. So often we lay in bed hashing out the mistakes and challenges of the day. Our minds are in a twirl and we go to sleep caught up in the troubles of our life.
But did you know that when you sleep, your subconscious continues to “work on” your life, and surprisingly, whatever you are focusing on in the last minutes before you doze off is what your mind chews on all night long. Focus on the challenges, and subconsciously you will create more of them. BUT if you focus on what you want, and think about the good things that happen (and there is ALWAYS something good you just may have to dig for it) your mind will work on and produce more of that! Focus on how to become rich and you’ll get the answers you need!
Success Factor #2: The people you surround yourself with
Have you ever wondered if it really matters who you are surrounded by on a daily basis? Trust me; the biggest indicator of whether or not you will be successful is who you spend your time with. Successful people spend their time with positive, confident people who support them in achieving their dreams and encourage them when the going gets tough. This is one of the most important success factors.
The reason this is a key to our success is that the people that we have in our lives really affect us. They become our sounding board; they give us opinionsand even judge what we do. We receive their input which in turn affects our thoughts, and these thoughts often change or influence our behaviors. By surrounding yourself with people that believe in you and support long term success and happiness you set yourself up to win. Surround yourself with wealthy people and you may very well learn how to become rich!
Success Factor #3: Cut The YUCK
In order for us to become more successful, it is important to understand that often we need to eliminate some things from our lives as well. And “CUTTING THE YUCK” is the perfect place to start.
For some people CUTTING THE YUCK may mean eliminating the caffeine & sugar from their diets, for others it may mean distancing themselves from the negative people in their lives. For each of us “YUCK” is defined in a different way, and only we know what needs to go. But here is the good part, when we cut out the things that aren’t serving us and replace them with something better, all kinds of positive things begin to unfold and we find success quicker.
Success is something anyone can achieve…whether that means knowing how to become rich, being happier, healthier, or having a more harmonious family…its totally possible. It’s just something to work toward, and it IS a process that takes time and consistency. Simply apply yourself in these 3 key areas and you can begin to unleash YOUR success starting today!
