9 Steps To Success And Greatness
Just get started
(Stephen Rachael wake up call notes 1/23/2017)
We all really want greatness. We do a lot, work hard. Experience a lot of failure in the beginning. The list is longer than 9, but for the length of the call these are really important.
1 Need to know your strengths and weaknesses.
We all have value to bring. Lots of leaders in the back office. We all start somewhere. Don’t focus on what you don’t know, focus on what you do know.
We all have value to bring. Lots of leaders in the back office. We all start somewhere. Don’t focus on what you don’t know, focus on what you do know. Focus on learning some new skills in addition to what you are already doing.
2 Don’t hesitate to get started.
We think everything has to be perfect. See commercials. Driving down highway everything looks perfect in businesses. You need to just start. The only way to be somewhat perfect you have to start. To become great have to start.
For those that don’t work, but are professional preparer, you want to start and learn as you go. Start sharing, start implementing.
3 Set some long-term goals.
Where do you want to be December 2017? Where do you want to live? What type of income do you want to earn? How many people do you want to help?
Success is not always about money or time. Could be about family.
4 Break down those goals into smaller ones to create short term goals.
By end of time, what do you need to do? What do I need to do to get to that point? How many sales on a daily basis? How many leads need to generate to get those sales?
You will know exactly how to do that. Will make things clearer in terms of actions when you break down goals. Affect your mindset.
5 Be patient.
Not going to come over night. We all had to go to work, better our skills. Takes time. How long? Depends on the individual. If you want phenomenal results, you got to act phenomenal. Takes actions. Talent is overrated. Got to be patient, take action, don’t rush it, go to work, don’t stop, learn, apply what you are a learning.
6 Learn from your experiences and innovate.
When things don’t give you the results you are looking for, learn from experiences and keep innovating. Trying to figure out new ways to connect with people. The only way to gain wisdom is to learn from experiences. We all got to go through our own path. We all do a little different.
7 Create content on daily basis.
In 2017, January, have to create connect to reach and connect with people. People want authenticity. Promote you, your brand, your experiences. Document daily vs create. Take people on your journey of creating success.
8 Be consistent.
Keep going. One of the biggest issues, a lot of times people aren’t consistent. When first started marketing years ago, have to be consistent. Keep creating, documenting, getting better. You can’t afford to take a day off. Things in place to automate your business. You know what you need to do every day when you wake up in regards to your business. Do something off your list every day.
9 Connect with a mentor and a community to really help you become successful.
Hang around with other entrepreneurs striving to do what you are doing. Shorten curve. You can do it on your own, but can learn so much faster when you connect.
