5 Key Steps To Becoming Wildly Successful
I have found that becoming wildly successful is not as hard as most people think. There really is no magic pill out there that ultimately turns things around, or turns ideas into virtual gold mines. Although, what you learn in science is true, things operate through the principles of cause and effect. Everything is based on a series of steps that come together to produce the desired results. So, if you don’t like where you are right now, go back and look at what you left behind.
One of the most important, and often overlooked area that is vitally important to people’s success, is being consistent. Out of the many things that you could do day in and day out, consistency and perseverance really make the largest difference. Strategies change, priorities change, and times change, but if you are not consistently working and taking steps, you probably won’t see the fruits of your labor.
Success is based on both action and opportunity. Both of those are things that you can’t do just once, and hope success will come your way! Success is a building experience. You do one thing today and something else tomorrow, and because you have worked hard day after day, all of those little movements create incredible momentum.
Think of it this way, if you have to dig a big ditch normally you don’t it with one shovel full of dirt. You usually don’t wake up one day and go from start to finish, it is a gradual process, step by step, and inch by inch.
No matter what you are trying to accomplish there are steps, some are large, and some are small, but all of them are important. The reason why so many people have challenges with consistency is because we are looking for some big swift moment, and we don’t realize that there are times when you don’t see anything until you have been working for a while. What you often find is big or important things happen only after steps or actions come together, and are consistently applied. Sadly, the mistake many people make is they give up before they see the results. It is usually not just one step that holds the key to growth, normally it is the combination of many steps over time, and when you don’t realize that it is easy for you to get discouraged, give up, and/or quit.
This is where accountability really makes a difference. Knowing what you need to do doesn’t create results, it is acting on what you know that really gets the job done! Having some kind of reliable check-in gives you another perspective and it also helps you focus not just on the results, but on whether or not you are doing what it takes to get you those results, and doing that consistently. How many times have you looked at someone else’s body of work and admired how far they have come without thinking about how much work they must have put in to get to that point?
Success is a process that you grow into you start in one place, and you move to another with consistent effort and action, over time. If you allow yourself to believe anything else, you are setting yourself up for failure.
The questions I leave you with today are simple. Looking at your actions and activities over the past few months, what kind of results have you earned with your consistency? Secondly, if you realize that your results are a direct result of your efforts, and you want more, or you are not happy with what you have, ask yourself what you are prepared to do to change it?
