Hi to you. Today I am going to write about stickability and how stickability relates to your success. so grab a coffee, sit back and I hope you enjoy this blog.
Time – another poor excuse
I have heard so many excuses from people and using time is probably the most used.
“I just haven’t got time” Hmm.
We all spend time watching TV, movies, surfing the net, playing games and a host of other time wasting things all of which are not really proactive towards your success.
A lot of people say ” I have to work” or “I have a family” or “I have things to do around my home and yard”
All of these are valid reasons not to have stickability when it comes to doing something unfamiliar. This thing called fear tells us to make up reasons not to move forward.
Now I’m not saying you should not work, be with your family or do things you need to do.
What I am saying is, you may need to look at your thoughts when it comes to something new take notice of those feelings cos just maybe there is some sort of negative feeling attached to those thoughts.
Let’s say you are shown a business opportunity that will create a future where you no longer need your job. What an incredible feeling, not having someone else in control of your life or the money you earn.
It can also be scary especially if you have had a job (just over broke) from the time you graduated. Don’t let fear stop you.
Have a look at the opportunity that is presented to you, do your due diligence, then if it is good, go for it. You will most likely be so surprised at how your life changes.
Time freedom and money = Freedom is Yours, it is your choice.
If you truly want to do something new and different from the norm, then you need stickability and then a sense of freedom is yours.
Example: OK, Someone buys you a skydiving gift voucher which a wonderful gift and they hand it to you. Instantly you are one of 2 things.
Excited because it is something you always wanted to do and now is your chance, or you become instantly fearful at the thought of jumping from a plane.
For me, it is the 2nd one but I do know this. If I was given the opportunity handed to me, I would learn what I need to learn and make time to go do it. I would face my fears and through a skydiving instructor, I know I would gain the confidence I needed to go Jump!!
This goes for so many different things in our lives and you truly want to move forward living your best life you will find the time
Attitude – what’s yours like?
When it comes to change of any kind we all have different attitudes towards it.
Some like it, some people love it and some people don’t like it at all so if you want to something new with your life and you don’t like change chances are you may not do whatever it is.
In order to achieve the goals and dream you want, you are going to have to have a positive attitude, you have to be open to learning new things and as it is said:” Your attitude determines your altitude” and this is a fact.
Without a great attitude towards life and your future, you will find a reason not to go for your goals, too sabotage your progress when you start moving forward. You may even try to blame others because you stopped working on your new plan. You are in control of your life and the freedom is yours for the taking if you 100% want this and nothing or no-one will be able to stop you.
You will be like an Olympian striving for Gold.
Teachable – Are you willing to learn?
You have to be willing to learn when you decide to do something new, so are you teachable?
There are people who hate being taught and then there are those who love it. Be one of those people and you will have a great future. Learning is so important for you when you take on a new project, career move or start your own new business and there are mentors, people who know a lot of great things that will teach you on your way.
Remember this” The teacher will appear when the student is ready” Are you ready?
Focus – or moving along aimlessly
Usain Bolt, Michael Jordon, Elton John, Michael Phelps, Mark Todd, Adele, Lady Gaga, Pink, Tony Robbins, Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen and 1000’s more famous people did one of the most important things.
Focus!!. They all focused on their goals, not on the hard stuff, the early days but on the GOAL and guess what, they focused 100% on this.
Through rough patches and there will be those, through rejections, through bad weather, you name it, if you truly want to reach your goal, you need to focus on the big picture, not on the negatives.
When I started singing, I was very young and all I did every waking moment was think about becoming a professional singer. Guess what. It worked and I loved my 25 years on the stage.
Focus on the picture of what it looks like – you are there. How do you feel? Who is with you. What are you doing? Are you rich, famous, truly happy?
Feel it and see where it takes you.
Goals – what are realistic goals?
Some people think goals are simple to have. I disagree a little with this.
Goals are the most important thing you can have when you have decided what it is you want, however, if you don’t do your Goals correctly all kinds of things can go wrong.
- I’m going to start a business WRONG
- I’m going to buy a new car WRONG
- I’m going to take a vacation WRONG
These are NOT goals, these are ideas
Goals look like this:
- 1 month from (date) I’m going to own my own business doing (whatever this is, where it is)
- 3 months from (date) I’m going to buy a new (make, model, colour. price, year)
- 6 months from (date) I’m going to book my vacation to (Place, for how long and with who? is it on a plane. bus, train?)
- Be really specific. Details, please
Are you getting the importance of how you set Goals? If you set them the 2nd way you are 80% more likely to achieve them than with the 1st example.
And finally, you must have a plan set in place on how to achieve the goals A solid written step by step plan is one of the ways to success and freedom is yours. All you have to do is choose to DO whatever it is you want to do to create a better life for you.
How many hours you are prepared to put into achieving your results. Who, What, When, Why, How. these are your keywords when you make a plan.
Go for it and have fun
