There are a lot of theories on what makes one person successful and another less successful. You might think it is where they went to school, the opportunities they were given, the type of business they are in, how smart they are, who they know, or just good fortune. The common denominator among truly successful people is that they work hard. They do what others won’t, and they do it consistently. The key to success is “Hard Freakin’ Work.” Think about it this way – life is a series of base hits, not home runs. It’s about what you do every day to get on base, rather than a swing for the fences approach. Focus your energy on getting on base each and every day, because success is earned one day at a time. One step at a time. One decision at a time. One phone call at a time. One meeting at a time. YOUR CHALLENGE: Setup a daily routine that sets you up for success and start driving base hits in your business every single day.

Dream – Goal – Plan – Action. These are the four steps to putting it all together: Dream. Do you have big dreams? Do you have a bucket list? Be sure to write your dreams down, don’t worry about how or when you will achieve them, at this point your dreaming – it doesn’t matter. Goals. Next step, set some goals. Think of your goals as just dreams with a deadline. You want to put a time frame – could be five years, three years, one year – doesn’t matter. Plan. Now start looking at creating a plan. You have goals, you have a timeline – it’s now about breaking it down even further into 30-60-90 days. Action. Take your plan and put down the actual activities that need to happen week by week to execute your plan. Then take it down to the day, what do you need to do each day to move forward. It’s as simple as that. Dream – Goal – Plan – Action. Link your dreams to your actions and each day will have even more significance. YOUR CHALLENGE THIS WEEK: Start with your dreams, write them down, know what you ultimately are aiming for!
