Persistence for success

Work around other people who match your energy and enthusiasm: Working with or around others who match your level of passion, energy or enthusiasm will get about 43 % faster results. Even just being in the vicinity of such people will create the magic.

One person said that his office is infested with negative people. Putting up posters of business tycoons or ones mentors also does the trick. The bottom line is that when you lift your head you must see some people who are also focused on success and achievement.

Persistence is the single most important aspect of any achievement. Persistence is violated one cannot achieve permanent results. A recently concluded study proved that. The study showed that about 80% of the people followed the pattern of dropping their projects half way or when they met with a few obstacles. It is the persistent 20% despite all the setbacks and disappointment were the ones who made it.

Don’t take bad advice: Take only the advice of those people who are achievers themselves and, whom you know to be knowledgeable about your area of work. Also do not take advice from people who have no goal and direction in life. One may get some ideas from their talk, because they usually give talk and don’t do it themselves. One can sift through the ideas and advice and see what suits the situation best.

When putting a plan in action always keep an eye on results. Make changes in the areas where the results are not desired and make the changes immediately. A lot of people mistake that their evaluation should be at the end of the month or at the dead line point. The intelligent thing to do is to take daily, weekly and monthly feedback. It can get a person back on track or help one to improve his way to his set goals.

One must surround himself with winners. One of the key qualities of all successful people is that they avoid negative people and they spend the majority of their time surrounded by those who have already achieved what they themselves seek to achieve. So, if a person’s goal is to earn a six figure income then seek out others who already live a lifestyle such as the one he desires. Hanging out with people who just talk about getting rich but never take persistent action will ensure that the ambitious person may never reach his goal.

Have specific goals. Get a photo (or several) of what things will look like when one reaches his goal, and then focus only on that image. Quickly erase any negative beliefs or images that may enter into mind during the day.

Knowledge is a key component to success. One will have an edge above the others if he can compliment his desire to be successful by sourcing and acquiring more knowledge.

Visualize clearly and often design a new goal in mind first. One cannot achieve an idea of the results that are needed if he is not having an idea of what the goal means to him.

Take 10 minutes when you are sure not to be disturbed by people or phone calls. Get comfortable, relax fully, and then begin to dream about how you will feel when you have achieved your goal. Be specific in visualization and then review this image as often throughout each day as possible. It can work miracles.

Get to work and work hard. A lot of people reach this step and stop. It is at this point one must start. Work harder than ever done before and do it with impeccable focus. Know that all millionaires work hard. And it is ever so necessary in the start. Cut down on holidays and breaks and any other distraction that you busy yourself with. Don’t stop till you have reached your goal.
