How to be so good they can’t ignore you.

Deliberate practice is the key.

In order to get better you have to set up a system that gives you feedback as to how you are doing and then practice getting better in the areas that need development. Putting the time in on getting better is not enough, you have to know how you are doing. Look at what you are doing and break out tasks you can measure. Take these measures and develop ways to improve them. That is where your practice will pay off.

They are watching you, what do they see?

The #1 trait of the super rich.

They read every morning.

They were not kidding when they said “knowledge is power”, it really is. And reading is the way to get it and keep it. Old information, new information, it is all good. Things related to your work or your interests are always good, but so are mind stretching ideas not related to anything. My only advice is to keep it positive. Negative news or information is not the way to start your day.

What will you read now?

Nothing will get better until you get better.

It is not your goals that need to be worked on it is you that needs to be worked on.

You don’t get in life what you want; you get in life what you are. Everything needs to be earned. If you want to earn more, you have to know more. If you want a better body, you need to exercise more. You can look at your goals, but only as a guideline to tell you what you need to do to get ready.

What are you really ready to do to get better?

The one thing top achievers have in common.

They are dedicated to constant improvement.

The single most important key to success is to constantly improve yourself. You need to get better at your game, whatever that game is, every day. In this fast changing world if you are not improving, you are falling behind. Every day someone has something new and better and if you can’t beat it, you are dead. Put some heavy pressure on yourself to improve yourself on a regular basis.

Where are you going to start improving yourself today?

How to create your own luck.

Ever notice some people just seem luckier than others. It is real, but it is not magic. Here is what they do to be lucky.

Lucky people have these traits in common:

1. They have a keen sense of what they want. They constantly evaluate what is going on as it relates to what they want.

2. They play to their strength. They concentrate on what they do best.

3. They prepare. They plan and set up what they need before starting something

4. They ask for help. They know someone else had their problem before and solved it. The answer is out there.

None of this is rocket science; start to do each of these things right now.

You don’t enter a contest to learn.

Learning should be done in between contests, not during them.

Many people don’t pay attention to their business, game, etc. until they are in real test of their skills such as a contest or tournament. Prior to that, they just go through the motions. Then when the big day comes they discover they don’t have what it takes in some area. This discovery should have been made in practice and learning sessions. You need to get your skills up to par before they are needed. Game day is too late.

What skills do you need to improve now?

Hang on to some doubt in order to stay sharp.

If you are certain about things you are headed for trouble.

Certainty is a form of hiding. It is a way of drowning out our fear, but it’s also a surefire way to fail to see what’s really happening around us. If you’re certain, you’re probably not prepared for the unexpected, and sooner or later, you’re going to be badly surprised.

If you are without doubt you aren’t looking hard enough.

Asking for feedback can speed your success.

Feedback raises our self-awareness and helps up spot blind spots in our thinking.

If you ask other people for their opinions on how you are handing things, their feedback can help you spot patterns and habits that may be counter productive. And if you take steps to correct the things holding you back, you speed up your progress. Just be careful to seek feedback from someone you trust.

Feedback is the breakfast of champions, have a bowl today.

Five things you must fail at in order to be successful.

Being a failure at these things almost guarantees your success.

Here are five things to fail at:

1. Fail at achieving your original plan. You need to be flexible as things change.

2. Fail at feeling completely prepared and confident. You need to start before you are ready.

3. Fail at pleasing everyone, you can never make everyone happy, why try?

4. Fail at feeling OK all the time. You will have stress if you are putting yourself out there.

5. Fail at doing it all yourself. You can never do it all yourself.

OK are you ready to fail in order to make it big?

Control the conversation for a better outcome.

Generally you have an idea how you would like a conversation to go. Here is how to do it.

If you want a conversation to stay positive, make sure you speak first and set a positive tone, plus add positive body language to support it. In most cases the person you are talking to will follow your lead as to the tone of the conversation. This works on sales calls as well as dealing with ‘grumpy” friends.

Get ready for your next conversation.
