I’ve been in this business long enough that I can predict who will be successful in their goals. I can also see who will not. I’m going to share a few predictors here:
Predictor number one:
Are you willing to do the research to learn? Will you put in the work necessary? Are you WILLING to roll up your sleeves for 16-hour days? No? Well, I’ve got bad news for you.
Predictor number two:
Are you working to your strengths? Are you seeking ways to play to your strengths? If not, it’s time to start exploring what makes you HAPPY. What are you good at? What comes natural to you? If you don’t know what you’re good at, start exploring! Once you’ve got a few ideas, find ways to make money with it.
Predictor number three:
Are you genuinely happy for those around you? When friends are successful while you’re at a low point, are you still jumping for JOY with them?
This is such a simple thing. It doesn’t cost anything. It doesn’t even take any time. In fact, it often takes MORE time to be unhappy at someone’s success. So, why are so many people happier when they’re putting others down?
Misery loves company, right? Well, so does success. If you want success, surround yourself with successful people. CELEBRATE with them! All it takes is a quick text, call, or note. Even just a quick positive vibe sent their way can be a HUGE asset for both them AND YOU!
When we send positivity into the world, we get positivity back. We get SUCCESS!
And negativity breeds more of the same. Why jeopardize your own success by putting negative energy into the world? Negativity will only bring YOU down. Did you know that we make more wrinkles from frowning then we do from smiling?
Here’s another side effect of celebrating others. Once you get used to celebrating others. It becomes much easier to CELEBRATE yourself. There are so many people out there that hide in the shadows. They don’t share their goals or their successes. They have lots of excuses as to why they’re not where they want to be. Are you one of those people?
I promise, if you start sharing your successes – even the little ones – you’ll find so much support from those that want to celebrate YOU! Sure, there may be a few trolls along the way, but who cares? Trolls are only spewing their own negativity because they’re unhappy. Ignore them and move on. This is why you have a delete key.
Focus on celebrating others and too let them celebrate you! Don’t be shy. Be bold. Be brave. I don’t always get it RIGHT the first time. What is that saying, third time’s a charm. “Success is not final. Failure is not fatal. It is the courage to continue that counts.” –Winston Churchill
Now here’s your challenge. Share one thing this week with others that you’re proud of. It doesn’t matter how big or small it is, let it out. Take a chance. Shine your light. And watch the LOVE pour in!
