There is no doubt in my mind that three big keys to success are setting your intentions; believing you deserve success; and taking a lot of inspired actions. Even with this passion fueling you, it can sometimes be hard to feel this way every day.
However, if you can maintain this attitude daily you can avoid feeling as if you have to do too much in any one day. There’s nothing wrong with taking a “slow but steady wins the race” approach to your success.
Overnight success stories rarely actually happen overnight. Most success stories are powered by daily actions that produce results that pile up over time. One of my favorite sayings is:
Plan your work, then work your plan.
To achieve your goal of making your business dream your reality, develop a solid plan and persist every day until you achieve your goal. It may not be easy, and it may take some time, but if you work your plan every day you will eventually succeed.
A simple way to do this is to follow the rule of five. Imagine for a moment there is a large tree that you want to chop down.
If you strike it five times with an ax the tree will not come down. If you strike it five more times the next day it will not come down. But, if you persist in striking it five times every day—eventually the tree will fall. In fact, the tree will have to fall!
Apply this same mindset to achieving your business goals. Simply develop a list of five inspired actions you can take every day. Your list may look something like this:
- Create and share two new social media posts each day
- Spend 45 minutes in Google + communities and LinkedIn Groups
- Devote 30 minutes straight to writing a new blog post
- Make five phone calls each day to companies and/or people that interest you
- Devote one hour to reading, meditation or other personal development activities
Your rule of five list may look different than this, but the key is to develop one and persist in following through with it.
When you do you’ll be amazed by how much your accomplishments pile up in just two weeks—and then project that out over a full year and I guarantee you’ll feel an amazing rush of passion pour through your body.
So make your list of five daily inspired actions and go for it!
