As you strive to maximize your success in 2020, remember success has a simple formula…
You must consistently do the right things (behaviors).
You must consistently do these things the right way (execution).
Average performers do neither. So remember…
WHAT you do and HOW you do it will determine WHERE you’re going and how successful you will be WHEN you get there.
Make a Great Day!
It’s no secret that most people fall well short of achieving all they are capable of. They fall victim to complacency, reach a ‘good enough’ position and settle for the status quo.
As I often say.. If good enough is good enough for you then you’ll never achieve greatness.
Perfectly aligned with this principle, this recently published book by Jesse Itzler provides a unique perspective on breaking through your comfort zone:
Living with a SEAL: 31 Days Training with the Toughest Man on the Planet
Promoting the book, Business Insider published the video below.
Here’s the self-explanatory summary as published on YouTube:
“Jesse Itzler felt he was in a rut. So he asked Navy SEAL David Goggins to live with him for 31 days, during which Jesse would do anything David told him to do.
Jesse would later write “Living With A Seal” documenting the grueling experience of getting whipped into shape by one of the toughest men on the planet. They ran through snow storms, jumped into a frozen lake, and did lots and lots of push-ups.
Here, Jesse and David talk about actively pushing yourself and the 40% rule, which means when you think your done and have reached your limit, you’re actually only 40% done.”
As Jesse said, “you can’t improve when you’re on autopilot. You have to get out of the complacency of the routine”.
Indeed. Follow Jesse’s advice and the Navy SEAL’S 40% Success Rule, tap into your ‘reserve tank’ and breakthrough your comfort zone to achieve higher levels of success!
No doubt you’ve seen and heard many “get rich quick” offers over the years. Around since the early 1900’s, most of these schemes promise that with little time, effort or money participants can obtain wealth. Desperately seeking success, many well meaning folks fall for these pitches and sadly, in most cases, end up no father ahead then before they began.
While overnight successes make for great stories, true success is built on the foundation of continuous improvement. Success rarely (if ever) happens from making big changes all at once. Rather, the path to excellence requires progressive baby steps, small improvements in behaviors and execution that when performed consistently over time lead to big performance gains.
Be a little bit better every day and, over time, you’ll be a lot better!
Make a Great day!
Renowned best-selling self-help author and motivational speaker, Dr. Wayne W. Dyer, died on Saturday at age 75.
He left behind many lessons on life and success.
Here’s my Top 10:
If you believe it will work out , you’ll see opportunities
Whatever has to be done, it’s always your choice
Circumstances do not make the man
Judgements prevent us from seeing the good
Change the way you look at things
Be a Doer
Believe It To See It
See yourself as what you’d like to become
Go For It Now
RIP Wayne Dyer
Got the Monday blues? Having a difficult time re-focusing on work after a weekend of summer recreational activities?
Well you’re certainly not alone. Countless sales and service professionals have trouble getting out of first gear on Monday mornings, summertime or not.
That slow start often results in a weak finish and, in any event, is not the best way to position yourself for a winning week.
So let’s put the kibosh on that right here and now!
Make a Great Day!
