Success is available to all of us, we just need to unlock it first
No matter what area of your life you want to achieve success in. Or what that success looks like.
There is only one to get it.
That’s to project that success first. Make a plan and then work like hell.
Do those things and success will come. No doubt.
Yes, it will be hard work. It will also need self-sacrifice. The things worth having in life always do.
Step 1 Projection
Projection is a powerful tool. Why?
What you project is what people think you are. This is why first impressions are so important. If you are honest and genuine. That’s how you appear to people.
If you want to be a business leader for example. What are the traits and behaviors that those people have?
What do you already have in you, that is similar?
Projecting those traits and behaviors will change the perception of those around you.
If you act as if you are already a leader. Chances are people will see you as a leader.
How you dress also has a big part in that. Dressing the part helps you achieve that goal.
Projection is a powerful but simple concept to put into action.
Step 2 Develop the game plan
What does that success look like at the end of the day? It could be taking your startup side hustle from the garage to a multi-million dollar exit. It could be you sitting in the C-suite of the company you work for.
It could be you on stage in front of millions.
Whatever that success looks like to you. It needs to be mapped out and planned.
List the actions you need to take. Then build a plan and a close date around them.
Sounds like common sense I know. But you would be surprised at how many people skip this step.
Success comes from putting this step together with the others. Planning things out in detail and having an action plan in place.
Step 3 Work like hell to get there
There was a quote which goes something like:
People ask why I’m so lucky? I always tell them its funny, the harder I work. The luckier I seem to be.
When you start to project the success, and you have the plan in place. It’s time to put it all to work.
Work hard and methodically towards your goal. Stop to review your progress regularly. Making sure you capture all the lessons you learn along the way.
If the plan needs to be revised along the way then that’s ok. It’s all about the end goal. The journey there can take a few twists and turns.
We have the potential to do and to be. Whatever and whoever we want.
That’s the advantage we have as human beings.
Success in whatever way YOU define it. Is possible, follow those three steps to get started down the path and see where it takes you.
Hard work, dedication, and projecting the image that’s all it takes…
