One great trait to possess is persistence.
You may hear how a key factor to attaining success is being persistent.
But how does one go about acquiring persistence?
Lucky for you I found the answer to that question today and shot a video about it for you:
Do you love your job? If not, what is keeping you from changing to something you do love?
You spend 40 hours per week or more at any typical job these days, that’s far too much time to spend doing something you don’t enjoy.
Over time, this takes a toll on all aspects of your life.
Find what you love and do whatever it takes to spend most of your time doing it.
You hit out too hard and it lands in the bunker on the other side.
You hit the next shot too soft and it stays in the bunker.
Need I continue?
I was watching the Masters golf tournament, and the pros make the bunker shots look easy.
They routinely pitch the ball out of an 8 foot deep bunker and land the shot to within 2 feet of the hole.
What you don’t see is the preparation that makes this feat possible. Continue reading “Have you reached 10,000 hours yet”
It is not very often that a sale is made on the first visit.
To see what I mean, go to your local mall and do some research.
Sit outside any store with a single entrance, so you can track the people going in and out of the store.
Note how many people go into the store and leave empty handed.
Compare this number to the amount that leave with a purchase.
We all have different distractions to contend with in our lives.
Some are easier to ignore than others.
But if you put the proper effort into planning your activities, you can improve your concentration and focus on any task you must perform.
No matter what field you are interested in, someone has written a book about it at some time.
One of the best ways to learn about any subject is to read about it.
You don’t even need to find a copy of the book anymore.
Most books have an e-book version you can read right on your computer or many other handheld devices.
So if you want to get ahead in any area, start reading all you can about the subject.
Before long you will know more than most people and can be considered an expert on it!
Do you ever get caught up in learning all that you can about something before actually doing it?
You know, you read a couple of books, watch some videos then hear about some online course you can take and start on that, without ever really doing anything?
These are symptoms of what is referred to as “analysis paralysis“.
You get so caught up in learning and understanding something that you never get moving on actually doing it. Don’t get caught in this trap!
Start implementing what you learn today.
Take action and keep moving forward toward your goal.
We have a tendency to look at the negative more closely than the positive.
When things are going wrong, we have no problem at all giving all of the reasons for our difficulties.
But when asked to give a possible solution, we tend to draw a blank.
You should practice looking for solutions first whenever a setback occurs instead of analyzing why it happened.
You can always go back and analyze after you are back on track.
Accentuate the positive and you will find more solutions and less problems
People tend to have a stronger tendency toward seeing the negative side of things.
When you mention an opportunity to them, they see all of the pitfalls and know of some story of doom associated with it.
You should work on seeing the positive side of things instead.
Picture the best possible outcome whenever an opportunity presents itself.
By doing this you will start to see ways of achieving success instead of failure in all of your pursuits.
