Success is a process, not an event.  Here are 5 steps to help us achieve success:

  1. Make a commitment to yourself. It has to become a part of you. You can:
  • Write your goal down.
  • Make a poster or screensaver of the goal.
  • Set a daily reminder on your phone of your goal.
  1. A support system of like-minded, POSITIVE people (see Iron Sharpens Iron).
  2. Focus on behaviors that support your goal, not the actual goal itself. Behaviors that support the goal will lead to fulfilling the goal.
  3. Be flexible. The timing and tools you have may not be ideal, but they are usually enough to get you moving in the right direction.
  4. Be resilient. Distractions and disappointments will come.  Take time to reflect upon them, but do not dwell on them.  Get back on track!
