What’s Stopping You From Success?

What does success in business… being a world champion boxer… a writer of successful novels or… someone who can talk themselves out of trouble all the time have in common?

Simple really…

They believe in themselves unconditionally!

Guess what… they aren’t like that all the time… but they ALWAYS ARE, when it counts… and most times it counts a lot.

They are really no different than you or I…

Really… they truly aren’t that different to us…

They eat food the same way, they are short, tall, average, large, small, thin… they are bald or hairy, healthy or unfit… and any and every other combination besides… BUT they do have ONE thing in common…

They simply doubt themselves less often and focus on what they HAVE TO DO more often.

Which is actually something you can do if you simply apply yourselves.

Applying yourself includes being LESS distracted (or removing as many distractions as possible), and KNOWING (that’s actually preparing stuff), exactly the tasks you need to achieve to create a successful outcome.

Know what you want, know the value of what you are doing and work out what the primary task is worth from a dollar perspective…

…then focus on the TASK

WHY?

Because if you focus on the money… you will always be chasing your tail… but if you focus on the task… you will get it done… the money… will look after itself.

Follow this simple diagram… work out what it is you want to achieve… then do it… and before too long the results will just keep on coming…

Trying To Get Out Of Your Box?

I just love the start of every new year… everyone is excited about possibilities, new opportunities and the chance to be different… make a difference and hopefully achieve a different result than previous years.

Sadly, now that the year has started… most people will be in the same place, or even worse off than when they started last year.  I know that sounds like I am being a “wet blanket”, but hindsight ALWAYS gives you 20/20 vision… and the majority of us prove this to be the case year in and year out.

I saw this graphic and I felt compelled to share it with you because it reminds me of one of the profound lines in the first of the Matrix Trilogy movies….

“…there is no box!”

Constantly people are telling us to “think outside the box”… very few of them show us how, and I suspect that most of them don’t even know how.

These so-called boxes that we are supposed to be in are totally of our own making… YES we are influenced by society, our parents, religion, governments, our peers etc…. BUT WE CREATE THE BOXES THAT RESTRICT US, so we are the only ones that can create change.

May I suggest a different way of thinking…

  • These boxes are an illusion.
  • Stop trying to think outside of a box that doesn’t exist.
  • Understand that in fact… there “IS NO BOX!”

Like our little ratty friend in the picture you will start to realise that attaining freedom only occurs when you shift your perspective and change your reality.

Are You Going To Waste Another Year…?

I’m not going to give you any hype, I just want to speak plainly with you about networking.

It has been a struggle for a lot of people over the last few years, and I am not going to try and dwell on what you may have faced, what any of us has faced for that matter.

But we – all of us – are finally starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel (and no, it is not an oncoming locomotive… LOL).

The biggest challenge to each and every one of us is resetting our jobs or businesses for the prosperous future that is coming, and a big part of that is being able to connect, communicate and build effective relationships for both personal and business success… something of a lost art I’m afraid.

My name is Leo Petrik from FLOW Australia and I am here to help you succeed.

I feel it’s time that we were connected properly because the next 18 months are critical to each and every one of us to reset our personal and business lives for the global economic turnaround which is just around the corner (although it may not seem like it at the moment).

Now I don’t know whether you network or not, either way, I believe you are doing yourself a grave disservice…

I know that for many people in business… what is out there doesn’t work… and many who have tried networking over the years have learnt with certainty that the so called promises for business leads/referrals and education isn’t being delivered…

So WHAT can businesses DO?

Is there an alternative?

Well YES… now there is…

Come and find out how networking has changed and real networking is done… with only one focus… YOUR SUCCESS

WHY?

Because… without real, quality connections your business may not grow as quickly as you would like…

Because… learning a few simple skills can and will change the nature of your business and relationships…

Because… success is something we ALL strive for personally and in business, but we don’t always know HOW to do it, or get there…

Networking is actually a LIFE SKILL.

To that end, I would like to start our relationship by offering you a gift, my “5 Top Secrets of Networking!”, which are guaranteed to get your networking moving…

Please click on this link to get your gift – flowaustralia.com.au/five-secrets-of-networking.

 

I hope that this is the beginning of a great relationship, let’s keep the conversation going.

What Can You Achieve?

“It’s not just what’s inside you, it’s what you do that defines you!”

I heard this phrase recently, and it made me think quite a bit about how we do or avoid things.

When I first heard this phrase I thought, “That can’t be right, what we are inside makes a huge difference… our passion, our love, our values”, I recently thought this phrase was so wrong…

Then I started thinking, and soon other phrases start to pop into my head that actually supported this statement on so many levels. For example:

“All it takes for evil to flourish, is for good men to do nothing.”

A more contemporary phrase is, “Don’t just talk the talk, walk the walk!”

And from the book ‘Magic Kingdom’ – “What you do thunders above your head is so loudly, I cannot hear a word you say.”

 

I started to realise that you can have all the passion and intent in the world, none of that really matters until you put it into action. Not activity… which is just doing stuff, but action – on purpose, which creates results that impact on yours and others reality.

Too many of us hold back, spending time learning about ourselves, our world, the universe, without realising that knowledge without purpose… active purpose, is as fruitless as no knowledge at all.

The greatest inspirations in history were men and women of action, some of that action was spectacular, for example, creating atomic fusion, exploring outer and inner space. Some of it has been sublimely subtle, like helping lepers in India, but action, it is nonetheless…

So back to the statement, ‘If what we do, defines us’, then we really need to look at how we do what we need do.

How do we move through the world, to make it a better place, not just for us, but for others? What is our purpose in life? Why are we here? What do we need to do to make us better people? Who do we need to connect with to fulfil our lives? Where do we start to achieve what we want to achieve?

These are pretty amazing questions, and each and every one of us is going to answer them in a very, very different way.

 

For my part, I would like to make a suggestion. It is only a suggestion because I feel that this may be valuable for me, and hopefully, it could be valuable to you, if for no other reason than to give you an idea to set you on your own path.

When I quit smoking, what helped me was to have a small daily goal. Now I know the word goal has a lot of different connotations for different people, however, I use the word goal in its broadest sense. My small daily goal was very simple, it was to ‘not light a cigarette… today’. When I got to tomorrow, my goal was to ‘not light a cigarette… today!’

I kept this up, until I had actually quit smoking.

If we select any goal, whether it is to quit smoking, or to lose weight or to learn public speaking or to simply learn how to make scrambled eggs, when we follow a simple daily goal, we will be able to achieve what we set out to achieve, taking action, real action. This daily goal needs to be simple and achievable, and something you can focus on every single day without too much difficulty.

By achieving our goals, one day at a time, our results start to define us in a very real way. So, as I challenge myself, I challenge you, to find out what it is you want to achieve, set a small daily goal, and move forward in your life, one day, one moment at a time.

I look forward to hearing about your successes, as you define yourself, and as you change your reality around you.
