1. Self-Leadership

Get into the daily habit of deliberately doing things you don’t feel like doing. Mastering this skill will build your mental toughness to make excelling easier.

2. Focus

Working on your goals is a full-time job. Have you heard the phrase, ‘where focus goes, energy flows’? Many of my clients have incorporated a morning routine to kick off their day. They may start with meditation or a workout. Then they have dedicated time to work on their primary goal.

Brian Tracy told me he can always tell why someone is successful or not. He asks them what they are focusing on and how much time they spend on it. Focus, Focus, Focus!

3. Abundance Mindset

Those with an abundance mindset believe there’s plenty available for all. However, people with a scarcity mindset view the world as lacking. The scarcity-minded people are the ones who make decisions to save for a nice dinner. On the flip side, abundance-minded individuals will do what it takes to achieve their objectives. They are more likely to concentrate on reaching their goal vs. worrying about the obstacles in their way.

Here’s an example of how these opposing mindsets operate. One with an abundance mindset will figure out a way to hire a professional to help them excel, while a scarcity-minded person will stay stuck believing they don’t have the funds. Guess who’s most likely to succeed?

4. What You Think You Become

Envisioning yourself as the person you want to become psychologically prepares you to embody the new and improved you. Explain who you expect to be in great detail. It’s best to write it down, as though you’ve already become this person in the present tense. Take time daily to see yourself in this new role.

5. Courage

Strengthen your courage and your entrepreneurial spirit. This is about taking risks. Get into the habit of stepping out of your comfort zone, as often as possible, to develop the mentality to take risks.

6. People Skills

We cannot succeed without others’ help, so we must learn how to create healthy relationships. We grow together while we walk with others, and not when we walk alone.

Remember this short course in human relations:

  • The six most powerful words: I admit that I was wrong.
  • The five most powerful words: You did a great job!
  • The four most powerful words: What do you think?
  • The three most powerful words: Could you please…
  • The two most powerful words: Thank you.
  • The most powerful word: We.
  • The least powerful word: I.

7. Self-Trust

We all have the inner resources to do what is necessary to succeed, so we must learn to rely on ourselves. The next time you feel unmotivated, ask yourself who’s in charge of how you think? The answer is YOU. You’re in control of your motivation level.

To achieve a highly motivated state, grab the wheel, and be the driver of your life. Study your attitudes and mental state, and practice getting into a positive, energized mentality. You’ll end up becoming so charged up with motivation and fierce resolve that nobody can stop you from getting what you want.

8. Thoroughness

Develop your character as thoroughly as possible. Among other traits, you will also need persistence, accountability, decisiveness, patience, determination, time management skills, and organizational skills to succeed.

Take at least one new step each day towards your goal, no matter how small and insignificant they are. In the long run, all these accumulated steps will contribute to your plan by helping build the momentum to succeed.

10. Follow Through

Make it a habit to complete what you set out to accomplish. Start with small goals and build from there.

Equally important, don’t allow anyone else to dwell on your mistakes or shortcomings or to expect perfection from you.” ― Beverly Engel. This one quote perfectly shows why it's important to silence your inner critic.

Do you have a love/hate relationship with your inner monologue? You know, the voice that can motivate you to press on or stop you dead in your tracks and make you feel a few inches tall.
