Whatever you put your mind to, you can accomplish.
Keep in mind though, none of this happened overnight. You’re not going to be the next superstar by tomorrow. Remember to be yourself, and don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t succeed doing what you love.
It doesn’t matter who you are, where you live, how old you are, or where you came from. Everyone can be successful.
The 1st key is Hard Work and Focus
You must work very hard and stay focused, to be successful. For me, the key has been to start with small goals and create a strategy on how to achieve those goals.
Find a mentor if possible. I wouldn’t be where I am today without my mentors. A mentor can be anyone you look up to that has achieved some (or all) aspects of your dreams.
Know what you want, and have a reason to follow through. Focus on what matters.
The 2nd key is Communication
Realize the importance of clarity when you communicate. I’ve learned that if I listen more than I speak, I can learn a lot more. Try it, and see what happens. You may be surprised!
Another part of communication is your personal brand. If you want to make something memorable, it has to be something that people have never seen. Your personality has a lot to do with it. For example, for my own business I perform memorable magic, but most of the time people hire me for shows because they like my personality. I’m so grateful for those clients, and their attitude makes performing for them so much easier.
Put your personality into the moment that you’re creating. Ask yourself: “How can I direct people’s attention to the best aspects of my business and performance”
The 3rd key is Caring
There comes a time in everyone’s life when they ask, “What do I want to do everyday for the rest of my life?” Try to care more about the people than yourself, you’ll stand out in the best way.
Now is the time. Be passionate and don’t make excuses. Learn from the past on what has worked and what hasn’t. Know your business to the best of your knowledge and be brutally honest with yourself. Find out your strengths and your weaknesses. Focus on your strengths. Stay strong, and stay focused.
The 4th Key is Responsibility
Always remember that, no matter what happens, your destiny is determined by your decisions, and that’s the ultimate battle. You choose what to focus on and what you have the power to change. The time is NOW to change your life.
If you have your own business, start with putting out great and helpful content with Youtube, Facebook, Snapchat, Twitter, or Instagram. By doing this, you promote yourself. Provide value in that space as best you can, (and that includes existing clients). Nothing has to be perfect and nothing is perfect. Document through social media verses create.
Have you become conscious in your decision making? If you don’t like something, YOU have the power to change it. Have confidence in what you’re doing so people will believe in you.
Remember, the big decisions start with little decisions, and even the little decisions can make all the difference.
You must work hard every day to achieve your goals. Nobody gets successful and wealthy overnight. It takes years of hard work, planning, learning, and growing.
Take it one day at a time and as long as you keep moving forward, that’s all that matters. Gain knowledge, decide on a strategy, and then execute.
Choose to focus on the positive in your life. Surround yourself with people that bring out the best in you. Remember to feed your mind helpful and positive messages by reading, watching, or listening. Feed your mind to become inspired. Find out what really inspires you and motivates you every day. Whatever you focus on, you are going to feel, so let’s be happy and fulfilled.
Nothing is easy. To quote Merlin Mann: “You’ll never know, what you need to know, in order to know what you need to know.”
Just think about that. It’s all an unfolding process, and as long as you’re making progress by providing value, you’re on the right track. Nobody is an overnight success. It takes a lot of hard work and dedication. Care about your customers and listen to them. Believe in yourself and give it your all. Health, Wealth, Love and Happiness is what we all want. We can all achieve that.
