#19 – The 4 Principles of Success: Takeaways of Success: Strive to Create Meaningful, Positive, Productive Relationships. Just know that successful people create relationships with purpose. If you are wanting to be a successful person in business or in life in general, create and have relationships with purpose. Think with purpose. Act with purpose. Speak with purpose. Do with purpose. Everything you do should be with purpose. I’m not saying that you are not supposed to have relationships with people that are not filled with fun and that all your relationships should be serious or just about business. I remember when I was a teenager and, as most of us do, all I craved were experiences and the quantity of my experiences. I didn’t necessarily care about the quality of my experiences or the quality of my interactions with other people. I was just glad to be alive to experience life. Now that I’m old enough to know better, quality most definitely matters. Think about it this way. When you create a general, purposeful mindset, every relationship whether it’d be business, friendship or a love relationship WILL HAVE PURPOSE. Once you adopt a purposeful mindset, all of your frivolous interactions with people will start to decrease because, with a purposeful mindset, you actually start to crave more out of life. Life starts to have more meaning. Life starts to have more enjoyment. Life starts to have more love.
#18 – The 4 Principles of Success: Takeaways of Success: Find Your Life’s Purpose Know what you’re here for. Find your reason for being alive. Sometimes you may have to get away from our modern societies to find your life’s purpose. Being inside your own mind for extended periods of time has shown to bring out hidden things that have been drowned out by the noise and distractions of daily life. Don’t be afraid to take that personal time of soul searching to find your purpose and life passion. Lots of successful people hold on to embedded childhood memories of happiness that fuel their life’s passions and purpose where other successful people find hidden childhood trauma that eventually transforms into incredibly positive vehicles for their success as well as the success of others.
#17 – The 4 Principles of Success: Takeaways of Success: Celebrate the Small Victories. When you’re aiming for higher life goals, sometimes it can feel redundant, mundane, monotonous and just plain boring. When those lame tasks eventually add up to what you feel is a small piece to the puzzle of your success, don’t just ignore what you’ve done. Go ahead and celebrate that small victory. You’ve worked hard for whatever it is. As humans, most of us need some kind of validation for the things that we do. Whether it’s the reasoning behind why we help a friend or family member or the reasoning behind why we want to become a great success in life, we at least need to give ourselves personal congratulations for the things we accomplish. Do yourself a favor and feel selfish in that moment of achievement. You earned it. Create that enticing mindset for reaching future goals. Celebrate and reward yourself for your small wins so you can condition your mind to crave more reasons to celebrate therefore continuing to strive toward future gains. Within you, those tiny celebrations will create a stronger drive and a more intense hunger for more success.
#16 – The 4 Principles of Success: Takeaways of Success – Where is your ‘me’ time? As a person striving for success, it can sometimes be stressful and overwhelming to the point of sheer exhaustion. Depending on your daily tasks, being successful can take a toll on your mind, body, and spirit. To help elevate this tension, it can be wise to create time in your day for moments of silent meditation. Now, you may be thinking, “I don’t have time for meditation.” Actually, meditation can be as little as 60 seconds in length. Some people are even so good at meditation that they can enter multiple meditative states for mere moments throughout the day. Taking this personal time can help your mind with clarity and even new ideas. You can also take this personal time to reflect on your current accomplishments and to mentally prepare for your forthcoming goals. Take those personal, quiet moments to relax, breath deeply and prepare your mind for the positive journey that you are immersed in. Create your me time for YOUR success.
#15 – The 4 Principles of Success: Takeaways of Success What have you done to reinvest in yourself? Reinvest in yourself. Whether it’s money or knowledge, you need to ALWAYS reinvest in yourself. Here’s an example: Let’s say you had a big launch of a product that actually earned you $10,000 on the first day. Sounds great right? Here’s the question: What are you going to do with that money? Are you going to celebrate by buying yourself an expensive gift of accomplishment OR are you going to reinvest almost every penny back into you becoming even more successful therefore solidifying your positive future? Successful people almost always have the mindset of reinvesting in themselves to be even more successful than they are today. Successful people are always thinking of how they can make life better and more enjoyable for themselves as well as for others. When it comes to reinvesting in yourself, there are multiple ways to do it. You can reinvest in yourself immediately and personally OR you can also reinvest in yourself in the long run by creating other streams of positive return such as starting a nonprofit or donating to your favorite charities and gaining personal and financial enjoyment from that. Reinvest in yourself financially and in knowledge. You just can’t go wrong with that mindset.
