5 Simple Success Tips that Work

Jul 31, 2008
Here are 5 powerful and effective success tips that you can use to enhance your work, your business, and your life. These are simple, precise, and easy to understand.

1. Remove the clutter -- We are a society of consumers. You can buy a product that promises to fix or enhance almost anything. There are products that will teach you how to get out of debt, make more money, or improve your tennis game. You can even buy tips for success.

A side effect of this consumer oriented society is that we end up with a lot of products that either doesn't perform as expected, or we never use.

We have exercise equipment that promised to make us thin, but we never use; movies that we bought on DVD, but never watch. We own bikes we never ride, and books we never read.

Too much junk clogs up our lives. We need to do a spring cleaning, both inside and out, and get rid of the clutter so we have room for new things.

Doing this spring cleaning exercise allows us to have fewer, but more powerful thoughts. It also allows us to become more focused and more effective in our actions.

2. Let success come to you -- Many of us have a grandiose notion of what success means to us. Numerous failures and the pressures of life often cause us to eventually abandon our dreams and settle for being less than all we can be. Stop chasing success and looking for the big score. In order to prevent overwhelm, envision in your mind what it is you want, and then break down the steps into tasks that are easy to do.

3. Perfect your daily habits -- Create daily habits around things that inspire you. Choose 10 things that make sense to form daily habits around. Choose those things that juice you up and replace any old bad habits with these instead.

4. Complete your work now -- We know that procrastination is a huge impairment to success. Most of us, however, will put off starting a project until almost the last minute. Yet, somehow, we still manage to get things done on time.

If you can complete your work in 3 days instead of a month, then do it in the first 3 days and not the last. Then use the extra time to reward yourself. Do something that excites you. Spend time giving to others, or work on personal goals or your part-time business.

5. Know what you want and determine your outcome -- Decide on what you want up front. Make a commitment. Decide to commit to taking the necessary actions, to following through, and decide to accept the consequences of your actions.

For the next 5 months, add one of these success tips each month. In a short time, you'll see an improvement in the results you get in each aspect of your life and work.
