The 5 Simple Steps To Success
- Create a Vision
- Raise your standards to support your vision
- Create and follow through on supporting daily, weekly, and monthly rituals that are based on the new, better, and higher standards you chose for yourself.
- Celebrate your achievements
- Do it again.
Simple – not easy, but possible, if you apply yourself! Here are some questions you can ponder that can flesh out the necessary details to achieve the vision you have for yourself.
We live up to who we believe we are
- What believes about myself are empowering?
- What believes about myself are limiting?
- When did you decide to accept that limitation? And why?
- What believes do I want to have about myself?
- How can I start believing those beliefs about myself? What action can I take right now?
There is a basic human need for consistency to act according to how we define ourselves
- What are the standards in every aspect of your life?
- What do you want the standards in those areas to be?
- What actions can you take today, to raise your standard?
- What are your new musts?
- How can you define your new standards and musts so that they are a compelling goal? Use powerful, descriptive language to support your expanded identity.
- How can you create an environment that reinforces those musts? Examples are – reminders, routines, habits, rituals, physical environment, who you are hanging out with
Raise Your Standard!
Important to remember:
Rituals are simply stated, actions you take consistently = they are the true power for change
- What rituals can you put into place, that help you be consistent with your new beliefs and standards you have chosen?
- What are the reasons behind your desire to change? Write an affirmative statement containing those reasons! (A great book that talks about the power of using affirmations properly – among many other things – is The Miracle Morning by Hal Elrod)
- What habits that you have right now are useful to your new chosen belief?
- What additional habits can you attach to these already established habits that raise your game even more?
- What habits that you have right now are not useful to your new chosen belief?
- What steps can you take right now to eliminate them? How can you make it harder for yourself to follow through on those habits? (for example, if you like to sleep in, move your alarm clock out of your reach in the morning, so that you have to get up out of bed to turn it on, or only buy healthy snacks, so that you are not even tempted to eat those unhealthy snacks you are trying to eliminate)
- What are you expecting of yourself?
- How can you improve your performance today, and every day – consistently?
- Who can you look up to as a role model to push you to the next level? How can you maximize your exposure to them?
- Who is hindering your success? How can you lower your exposure to them?
- What time-wasters can you eliminate out of your life?
- How would your life look like, if you would step up and increase your work ethic by 10 percent, 20 percent?
- Who are the top performers in your field?
- What habits do the top performers in your field have, that you don’t have yet?
- How can you deliver your best consistently to those who have put their trust into your service or product?
- How can you assist someone this month, this year, to reach their potential, by sharing your experiences with them?
- How can you contribute to your community at some level to make it a better place? Community does not always have to mean a physical location, it can be your spiritual community, a community of people that have something in common with you – for example, if you are disabled, how can you help other disabled people reach their own level of success or the care and dignity they deserve? Think outside of the box.
