Have the confidence to know that you can be, do and have whatever you set your mind to.
It’s as simple as that.
The difference between successful and unsuccessful people is much less than you think.
Here are a few simple thoughts that break it down even further:
- Decide exactly what you want to achieve and by when.
- Make sure what you want to accomplish is your goal and not anyone else’s.
- Determine your WHY. Why is your goal your goal? Attach emotion to it.
- Write down your goal. Look at it as often as possible. Write it in a present tense affirmation and say it with emotion and conviction as often as possible. If you have a mirror nearby say it in the mirror. I’ve been walked in on a couple times reading my affirmation in the mirror. (Fortunately after years of practice, I am not as easily rattled by other people’s opinions….haha)
- Decide you’re willing to go for it and do whatever it takes to make your goal a reality.
- Get rid of and/or ignore the naysayers!
- Accept we learn a lot more from failure than from success. There will be failure along the way. I promise. Embrace it. Learn from it. Keep pushing forward.
- The more times we try, the more times we will fail. In turn, the more we will learn. Embrace it.
- In order to be successful you must be willing to take risk and fail.
- Most people are afraid to take risk because they are afraid to fail. Accept failing as part of the process. It’s only “failure” when you give up. Everything else is feedback. Never give up.
- Most people are afraid to fail because they are worried what other people think about them. Get over what other people think.
- Most people are worried about what other people think about them because they have a low self-esteem. Tell yourself: Other people rain on my parade because they have no parade of their own.
- The underlying secret of success is learning how to raise your self-esteem.
- Work on improving your self-esteem and self-image every single day
- You’ll be less concerned with what other people think about you.
- If you’re less concerned about what other people think about you, you’ll be more willing to take risk.
- If you’re more willing to take risks, your odds of being successful at whatever you put your time and effort into increase.
Think about the most successful person you know. Do they have a high self-esteem or a low-self esteem? I already know the answer without polling you. They all have high self-esteems. How would you rate your self-esteem on a scale of 1-10? What would it take to make it a 10? How much time are you spending today moving your number closer to a 10? What are you prioritizing ahead of improving your self-esteem today?
Like anything else in life worth achieving developing a healthy self-esteem takes daily practice. We all have self-limiting beliefs, failures we cannot forget and people who drag us down and suck our energy. There is another way.
I cannot promise you it will be easy. But I can promise you it will be worth it. YES!
