Bring these words in your hearts. 21 steps to success by Brian Tracy will help you in every step of your life, personal or financial.
1. DREAM BIG DREAMS
Visualize your success and be a visionary. Be success conscious. Wealthy people think about wealth and success constantly. Poor people think about the lack of “money” constantly.
2. DO WHAT YOU LOVE TO DO
Commit to excellence in a specific field. The opposite of excellence is an acceptance of mediocrity. Once you decide to become the “best” in your field you will never again worry about money.
3. FOCUS ON YOUR UNIQUE STRENGTHS
We all have an ability which makes us unique.
Discover yours and build upon it.
4. ACCEPT TOTAL RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR OWN LIFE
Be the President of your own company. If you work
for someone act like you own the company. You ARE
the President of your own corporation. You are ALWAYS self-employed.
5. NEVER CONSIDER THE POSSIBILITY OF FAILURE
“Failure” is not in the vocabulary of a winner. A “set-back” or a “glitch” is a learning experience. You cannot fail unless you accept failure as your reality. Keep on keeping on and you will be successful.
6. HAVE A WELL DEFINED SET OF GOALS
Decide exactly what you want, determine the price
you will have to pay to get it and resolve to pay
that price. The ability to set goals and to make
plans for their accomplishment is the master skill
7. DEVELOP A WORKAHOLIC MENTALITY
Your results are directly proportionate to your effort. Be willing to work hard. Success is doing things effectively and efficiently…hundreds of times.
8. ASSOCIATE WITH POSITIVE, SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE
Step away from the masses and do not associate with unmotivated and negative people. Their common goal is to
keep you at their level….misery loves company.
9. BE TEACHABLE
Do not fall into the intelligence trap. Ask your way to success. Always be “green and growing”.
10. BE PREPARED TO CLIMB FROM PEAK TO PEAK
Understand ebb and flow. It never stops. There are always ups and downs, peaks and valleys.
11. DEVELOP RESILIENCE
Now matter how hard you get hit you can always bounce back and continue forward.
12. UNLOCK YOUR INBORN CREATIVITY
Duplicate yourself….demand more of yourself.
13. FOCUS ON PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT
Become an expert on success, time management, goal
setting and problem solving. Personal development is the key to great accomplishment.
14. DEVELOP A POSITIVE MENTAL ATTITUDE
Successful people maintain an attitude of confident expectation. If you expect to be successful you must avoid negativity at all costs.
15. DEDICATE YOURSELF TO SERVING OTHER PEOPLE
Your rewards in life will always be equal to the value of your service to others.
16. DEVELOP A REPUTATION FOR SPEED AND DEPENDABILITY
Do you have a sense of urgency? Do what is most important and do it fast. Get the job done and move on to the next task in your success plan. Do not major in minors.
17. BE HONEST WITH YOURSELF AND WITH OTHERS
Never expect to be successful without first paying
the price. Always deliver on your commitments. You
will reap as you sow.
18. CONCENTRATE SINGLEMINDEDLY ON ONE THING AT A TIME
Overcome the natural tendancy to do what is easy and fun rather than what is necessary, important and urgent. Ask yourself, what is the most valuable use of my time right now? Do it now. Do not procrastinate!
19. BE DECISIVE
There are no wrong decisions. Our inability to make any decisions is known as procrastination
20. BACK YOUR PLANS AND GOALS WITH PERSISTENCE AND DETERMINATION
Persistence is your measure of your belief in yourself. The more you persist, the more you believe in yourself.
21. BE SELF-DISCIPLINED
Do what you know you must do, when you should do it, whether you like it or not. Without this quality everything mentioned above becomes insignificant.
Think positive, always !
