Guarantee Yourself Success
If you are on a journey to become the greatest version of yourself, there are three things you need to always keep in mind so that you can consistently grow without getting distracted, overwhelmed, or disheartened.
Because when you set out to create new levels of success in your life, you have to try new things, take new risks, and boldly venture outside of your comfort zone.
Our overprotective human brains are reluctant to change and are easily scared off by challenges and uncertainties.
So, master the following keys so that you can keep making massive progress as you grow into the most successful and impactful version of yourself.
Key #1: Know Your Values
Why are you working so hard to create success in your life?
If it’s because you want to maximize your potential while sharing your unique gifts with the world in a way that fuels your soul and your bank account, then happiness and fulfillment are what you are truly after.
And if building an authentically successful business is your real motive, then get clear on your values as a person and a business and use those to guide your decision making as you navigate the uncharted waters of growth and entrepreneurship.
On your journey, people will come along and try to persuade you to pursue their version of success.
As flashy and appealing as it may be in that moment, cling tightly to your values and know that your version of success is the only thing that will bring you the happiness and fulfillment you are seeking.
Staying true to your values makes decision-making very simple and will prevent you from wasting time, money, and energy going after a form of success that doesn’t really resonate with you.
Key #2: Know Your Worth
When you are insanely passionate and growth-oriented, it is overly tempting to obsess over every small detail and outcome.
This totally makes sense! You want to succeed, so obviously you are heavily invested in making sure things work out in your favor as much as possible.
In the unpredictable world of entrepreneurship (and life in general), however, attaching your happiness and self-worth to constantly fluctuating results can cause serious amounts of stress, anxiety, and overwhelm.
To avoid this inner turmoil, it’s important to remember the bigger picture.
The only thing you can truly control is your actions, so instead of obsessing over the results, use that time and energy to ensure that you are showing up powerfully every day with clarity and intention.
If you are taking purposeful actions to the best of your ability each day, then you have nothing else to worry about, knowing that you are doing everything in your control to move your mission forward.
Key #3: Don’t Lose Perspective
Like I just mentioned, when you are passionately connected to your mission, you can become so entrenched in your business that you lose sight of everything else.
When your sole focus is success, you can overlook how fortunate you are to simply be alive.
You woke up today (not a bad start).
You have clean drinking water (844 million people would love to change places with you).
You get to boldly pursue something you are passionate about each and every day (which beats the hell out of slugging your way through life doing something you hate).
It’s crucial to remind yourself that although success is important and worthwhile, it is not the only thing that gives you worth as a human being.
Enjoy the journey.
Work your ass off.
Take action in spite of fear.
Chase down ambitious goals.
