Do you find yourself looking for the magic formula for success? Does it seem overwhelming at times? Does it feel like you are going 2 steps back and 1 step forward?
Can we actually measure success? It’s not that easy, when success means different things to each of us. How many people are actually achieving real success in a well-rounded way? What I mean, is not only in their financial, but in their personal relationships – marital, children, friends, business partners. What about success spiritually, emotionally and most importantly, in our health? It’s hard to put a number to it, but if you listen closely to your friends, family and business colleagues, you will find the number to be astoundingly low on the success scale. In fact, in the research I have done, statistics show approximately 5% of the population reach success in all areas of their life.
So, what is it that successful people do? I am sure, when you hear what it is, you will go ‘of course’! Recently, I was reminded of this by one of my mentors, Trey White, who reached ultimate success early on in his late 20’s. Although, he is worth millions and millions of dollars, his belief is that we can all have real success if we do the simple things. In his newest company, EvolvHealth, he has carved a niche and success path with his vision and mission to positively impact 8.4 million people in their health and in their wealth. He reminded his team of field leaders, that creating success in business and in life is, just merely doing the SIMPLE things that are EASY to do, but most importantly doing them consistently. What? Yes, it’s that simple and that easy!
But if it’s that simple and that easy, then why are there not more successful people? Good question and guess what – easy to do, EVEN easier NOT to do! Yes, simple disciplines done daily will add up over time to bring you well-rounded success! They may seem insignificant and not always very exciting, in fact boring at times…but it’s the absolute difference between achieving success and not achieving it. Take a look at high level athletes like Kevin Frost, World Record Holder, Blind & Deaf Canadian Speedskater! Each and every day, he does the same thing over and over again, year after year and in his case, with a disability. So I ask you, what can you do differently?
1. Start by understanding your goals and why you are striving for them.
2. Become aware of the simple, easy things that you could do daily.
3. Starting doing them consistently and with discipline.
4. Go out and be part of a challenge to get motivated by others, like the e84 challenge for example.
5. Make it fun and don’t wait! Start RIGHT NOW!
Keep me posted on your progress – I would love to hear from you!
