Day 91 of 100 Days to Greatness: The Journey of Success Includes Road-blocks


Before you can start the journey towards being successful and begin building habits that move you along that road, you need to understand what success is. Most people only have a vague idea of success. This prevents them from actually becoming successful because they don’t know where they are going.

It’s like getting in your car and jumping onto the interstate with a full tank of gas, trying to drive to the perfect vacation spot. Odds are, you aren’t going to stumble onto it by accident. You need a destination in mind, and you need a map to get you there.

The reason that people have problems becoming successful is that they have not figured out exactly what it means to be it. That’s why defining success is the first step in achieving it.

The problem is, success isn’t really a destination. Success is actually a journey with stops along the way. Those stops are definitely the destinations that you want to arrive at, but there is no “final destination” that you will get to where you will finally be happy. When it comes to being successful and happy, the only way to achieve it is to be constantly moving towards your goals.

Day 93 of 100 Days to Greatness: Goal setting – the journey is as important as the end result?


When you have goals and you are on track to reach them, you are happy. But your happiness isn’t going to become permanent when you finally reach those goals. You may be more satisfied with life and happier for a while,but you are still going to want to set new goals. You will never be satisfied, and that’s perfectly okay.

So, you might be wondering just what the purpose of goals actually are then. You cannot be successful without goals, and you cannot form good habits without goals.

You can try to force yourself to do something habitually, but without a goal behind them, those habits have no power and they will not stick, even if you do follow the steps required to get them to become permanent. Your goal is not only your motivation; it is also your blueprint. The goal that you are working towards will put demands on the types of habits that you create and it will shape the way that you change.

Think Positive.  YES YOU CAN! 

Positive thinking has been proven to have a powerful impact on a person’s life. While your environment might not be conducive to positive thinking, you can still be the lone light that shines in the office.

 

You are what you think. Your future is what you think it to be. If you keep on thinking about how deeply unmotivated you are and how you’ll never be able to achieve your goals, then that is most probably how you’ll end up.

 

I suggest you start with one statement at a time. Put up an inspirational quote or image on your wall or somewhere where you can see it every day. Let that thought or image guide you week after week.

Reward Yourself.


 

Goals can be difficult to see through to the end when you are not motivated enough. The trick here is to promise yourself a reward once everything is over, or even when you achieve phase 1 of your goal.

 

Rewards can be as simple as a trip to your favorite coffee shop or something bigger like a financial reward. In terms of business, think about how achieving this goal can lead on to better and brighter investments. Or how the results of your hard work can lead to more opportunities with better clients. It’s a win-win situation.

A great way to get and stay motivated is to “Seek Support”.

 

Misery loves company. No man is an island. Great minds think alike. I know what you’re thinking. You’ve heard all of this before. But why do you still tend to face your problems alone?

 

When you feel utterly defeated and unmotivated, perhaps you need to seek support from your fellow colleagues. They might be feeling just as lost as you are.

 

People, when they band together for a common cause, could easily find themselves motivated. Together, you all can work towards a common goal.

Do Something Different.

One of the ways to motivate yourself is by purposely skiving off from your usual routine.  After all, isn’t routine one of the reasons why you’re so unmotivated in the first place?

 

You don’t have to do something drastic. A lot of people, for example, like to get out of bed an hour or two earlier than the usual. They arrive at their office earlier, too. You’d be surprised at how different everything looks.
If you find it difficult to wake up early in the morning, perhaps you can simply change your tie instead. Or do your hair in a different way. Do something that is different from your usual self. Perhaps all you need to motivate yourself is a new perspective on life.

 

There are plenty of ways to motivate yourself. They don’t always have to be grand or larger than life. They can be simple and almost mundane even. It all depends on what catches your attention. Some people find motivation in the details. Others find it in the bigger picture.

 

Whatever your motivation is, remember it. So the next time you find yourself in a slump, you no longer have to worry about how you’re going to up your game.

 Take Inspiration From Others.

  

There are a lot of outstanding individuals who have made a name for themselves in the business industry. Steve Jobs, Oprah Winfrey, Barbara Cochran…  These guys have all made it big despite the obstacles they had to face.

When unmotivated, why not try to read about how they achieved their goals? Who knows? Maybe all you need is a little jolt of a fresh idea to get you moving.  You can check out Forbes .com or even Time.com to see who are today’s movers and shakers.

There are also a lot of sites and blogs online that are dedicated to listing down famous people’s quotes. A simple as these quotes are, they can have quite a profound effect on your life. I guarantee that you’ll find a quote there you can gain inspiration from or even someone you may want to emulate.

How Your Strengths Can Lead You to Success

 

Imagine this scenario: A baker needs to give his wife the perfect gift. So, he goes out shopping for something to give her. He browses through jewelry at the jewelry store, but he doesn’t know how to tell what she would like.

He looks at some lingerie, but he doesn’t know anything about it. In the end, he buys her a book, even though he isn’t sure what she likes to read. All of this time, instead of trying to buy her gifts that he knows nothing about, he could have baked the perfect cake or other pastry.

Now, this isn’t a perfect analogy. Most bakers’ wives probably eat so much cake that they would hate it as a gift.  But the point is that many people try to be successful without using a single one of their strengths. Writers try to make a fortune by building websites. Website designers try to make a fortune by writing novels. People don’t use their strengths nearly as often as they should to achieve success.

Here are some things that you can do to make sure that you are using your strengths to help you achieve your goals and become successful.

  1. Know what your strengths actually are. Sit down and make a list of things that you are good at. Identify the ones that you are best at and put them at the top of the list.
  2. Determine how you can apply each strength to being successful. If you are looking for some way to become financially independent, then evaluate your strengths in relation to that. If you have already chosen a route to success, then determine how your strengths might be able to help you go further.
  3. Write down your goals if you haven’t already. Then look at each goal and adjust it so that you are using your strengths to their full potential to help you achieve those goals.
  4. Break your goals down further into short-term goals like monthly or weekly ones and do the same thing with your strengths.
  5. Finally, break your goals down into daily habits and decide how those same strengths can help you stick by your habits, replacing the bad ones with good ones.
  6. Continue these self-evaluations regularly and make sure that you are using your strength instead of things that you aren’t good at to achieve success.

Why You Should Replace Television with Books if you want to be Successful

 

Did you know that one of the things that some of the most successful people in the world share in common is that they read books – mostly books on how to improve themselves in a variety of ways.

If you want to follow in the footsteps of people like Warren Buffet, Bill Gates and Steve Jobs, then you are going to want to read books just like they did. That means shutting off the black screen in your living room, removing the Netflix shortcut from your desktop and getting rid of the TV or movie apps on your phone or tablet. Then download a Kindle or an e-reader.

There are good reasons to get rid of television and replace it with reading material. Of course, you may not want to get rid of television completely, although many people who do say that they are much happier afterward and everything they thought they would miss seems of little importance.

Television doesn’t do much in the way of education. Most of the programs on television are fictional stories, and many are so predictable and formulaic that they do not tax your brain cells at all.

Even when television isn’t fiction it is often the same news stories that repeat over and over, or sensationalized real events that bear little resemblance to fact. Let’s not even get started on reality TV. The point is, there is very little on television that is going to teach you something that will allow you to better yourself.

In addition, science has shown that TV really does “rot” your brain – or at least your brain power weakens over time from television watching.

Books on the other hand, have a number of advantages. For one thing, you are reading and not watching. This simple difference means that you are using your brain in other ways. You are reading, figuring out the definition of words and forming pictures in your imagination.

Plus, there are so many books out there that actually help you improve yourself – hence the entire section of books called “Self-help” or “Self-improvement.” There are books on reaching goals, achieving financial independence, starting a business and learning everything from a new language to a musical instrument.

The bottom line is that books are better if you want to be successful. You don’t have to give up TV entirely if you don’t want to, but you should definitely read more if you want to achieve success.

The Life Cycle of an Achievement

 

One of the common problems that people have when they are first starting on the road to success is seeing how a major achievement will actually work. It is difficult to see more than the very beginning and the end result – the success. We are going to take an example here, and go through the entire life cycle of an achievement so that you can see how it is actually done and it should motivate you by making the end result much more realistic.

EXAMPLE: Increase annual income by $12,000

So, your goal is to increase your income by $12,000 a year. Let’s suppose that you give yourself three years to do it. So, here’s what the timeline might look like if you start from scratch.

January, Year 1: You spend the month researching ways that you can make money online. You check out each lead carefully until you find one that you have the time, money and skills for. By the end of the month you have chosen one – in this example case, you have chosen to start a niche review site online about the latest electronics and use Amazon’s affiliate program to make money.

March, Year 1: You have developed a website and added all kinds of Amazon products to it, and you have outsourced a couple of hundred reviews. Your traffic is starting to trickle in.

December, Year 1: You have spent the past few months creating backlinks and going after non-competitive keywords and have come up with a pretty steady stream of traffic. You are making around $1000 a year so far, which comes to about $85 a month.

May, Year 2: Your income is going up. All of the content you have ordered has started bringing in huge traffic for long-tail keywords. But your income has only increased to $150 a month. You aren’t sure why.

November, Year 2: After several weeks of research, you realize that your site’s buying links were difficult to find. You changed them and increased your conversion rate by 500%. You’re now making a little over $4000 a year.

December, Year 3: You have been continually adding content and getting backlinks to your site. Now, you have grown to be one of the most well-respected TV review sites on the web. You have been able to make almost $14,000 this year.  

It works…  And is simple to start. #coachDSA
