Motivation and ability fail people. Not only that they need to develop skills of achievement, they must develop achievement habit.
Today, I will share with you how to stop wishing and start winning.
You can learn from your own experiences. You can solve your own problems. And you can create opportunities that will make this world a better place to live in.
Most of our actions are influenced by our habits.
You can create new habits that will help you achieve. You will find the following thinking patterns valuable as you create new habits.
1: Break your own record.
No one will define for you what you can achieve. Only you can do that for your self. Your past performance doesn’t determine your future. You can break your record.
2: Say goodbye to your excuses.
Failures have excuses. Those who achieve have choices. In fact, we all have choices.
Things happen; we do things, and other do things. If you like what is happening now, keep doing what you are doing. If you do not like what is happening, do it differently next time.
Don’t allow your excuses to justify mediocre performance.
3. Just do it.
If there’s really something you want to do, often it is as simple as just doing it. You don’t need tricks and gimmicks. It comes down to the difference between trying and doing, between talking about achievement and achieving.
Ultimately, it depends on your intention. Achievers pay attention to their intentions.
4. Speak the language of accountability.
Doing is better than trying. Doing becomes easier when one begin to speak the language of accountability. By developing the habit of asking the right questions, one begins to achieve.
5. Get unstuck.
How you walk around obstacles lies in the way you think about problems. Identifying what you expect from solutions brings you to a higher level and, ultimately, a better question.
Changing the questions often enough to lead to a satisfactory resolution and make the original difficulty disappear.
6. Find help.
When it comes to achieving what you want in life, it’s rare that you can do it entirely on your own. Often you’ll need a little assistance from your friends. You can learn from others. You can get the support of a mentor.
I had no savings. And I didn’t know how to start.
Pursuing my dream wasn’t a mistake. I could say that the timing was not right. But pursuing a dream is always worth the risks.
My big mistake was really in thinking that all I needed to know, I could get from reading books.
When I think that I must work on something and I am not in the mood to work yet, I tell myself DO IT NOW! until I stand and really do something. It is difficult at first, and still difficult in the middle, and yes, difficult until the end. But when something is finished, I…
Everywhere self-made persons are celebrated. But the one peso question is worth asking: Do they really exist? I agree that many of us can choose who we want to become. We are products of our choices. But everywhere I looked, I see successful people who got helped from others. Accepting this will not make us…
“People say that you cannot teach old dogs new tricks.” Chit, a participant in my Excellence in Supervision Program, asked if she can still learn something. She said that she is already old. I promised her that the workshop will provide her amazing tools she can use to improve her performance as a supervisor. “I…
