Consistent brilliance is the mark of only the very few. Top sporting teams that achieve consistent success are a rare commodity and so are businesses and entrepreneurs. To achieve consistent brilliance one needs hard work and a talent combined. If you already have a strong work ethic, then you are halfway there to achieving long term success because you can use it to attain new skills and concentrate your mind.
To become one of the few you need to be ready to make sacrifices of your time and energy. Of course, I am not just referring to money here for you can be a success in many things from personal relationships to charity work.
This is why you need to decide first and foremost what it is that is the most important to you. Do not fall into the trap of thinking that success means one thing or another; it is a subjective process so remember that.
So, to begin with, ask yourself some probing questions that get to the heart of who you are. You should ask yourself things such as, “what matters the most to me in life work or personal life?” There are no right or wrong answers here because it is your decision as an individual to reach the conclusion. It is important to remember that there is no point in selecting something that your heart is not fully involved in. With that point in mind, you should consider your long term success.
Understanding your values and beliefs are critical to understanding your motivations. If you come from a background of hard workers, the chances are that you have had a strong work ethic ingrained in you since a child. Of course, it is not always immediately clear for all of us to know who we are or what we like doing. Only through practising self-awareness techniques does it become possible.
Life coaches talk about the idea of a self-talk when it comes to improving self awareness. Self-talk is the idea that the whole time we are conscious we are engaged within a conversation with our selves. A person fully attuned with their attitudes and beliefs is someone who is able to hear this conversation and start to direct it.
Spend some time in quiet contemplation with yourself and think honestly and without bias about the things that matter the most to you. Afterwards write down everything you thought about in ten minutes and think about what you have learnt about yourself.
You see, having a mind that is self-aware leaves you open to new ideas. Once you have a fixed idea about what you want out of life, you are willing to entertain as many outlandish thoughts as possible to attaining it. Remember that creativity is the spice of life.
So an open mind is important then as is drive and motivation but what else? Well we mentioned earlier that potential is maximum possibility. like with any possibility potential needs to be actively engaged with if it is going to be achieved.
You need to continue encouraging yourself at all times. The good thing is that if you are involved with something you love you will not have to keep consciously reminding yourself of your potential. That is why finding a love- a passion – is so important
Of course that possibility is how you choose to define it? Once you have found your chosen field to excel in do not constrain yourself, think big! The higher you set your sights the more you can achieve. Don’t just have the sky as your limit – think beyond and the future will be yours for the taking
What is it that motivates you to get out of bed in the mornings? Many people would answer going to work and if you love your job that is fine, but a lot of us go to work as a means to an end.
When we think about it, work plays a pretty dominant role in our lives. If your long term goal is non work related, then you need to be as creative with your spare time as possible. Make sure that you are being as productive with the mundane tasks of life as possible so you can work on your long term success.
