Good afternoon all,
Carpe Diem (seize the day) is one of my most guiding principles. One that hit home to me after reading numerous books on successful entrepreneurs. They all took quick, decisive yet well calculated action when pursuing their goals. This instilled the trait in me from a very young age. If the most successful people act this way, I knew I must replicate this in my own life. Model the traits of the people you admire and you can only start developing in the right way.
[subscribelocker] Reflecting on my biggest achievements I always spent a short period of time reviewing the risk v reward but if I had the right gut feel I just went for it and put everything I had into it. With this approach success in what you do is a matter of ‘when’ not ‘if’.
I was recently shocked the other day by an old university friend who made me aware it had been 10 years since I first attended University. It only feels like yesterday. It further reinforced the fact that life passes us by very quickly and so can our opportunities unless we seize the day. If not today then when? You have to create the tomorrow you want today.
Yet taking action now is just the first step, you then have to motivate and push yourself daily towards your goals. This isn’t easy and in most cases takes a large investment of time and money but what better thing to invest in than yourself?
One thing I will advise, that was critical in my own development, is getting a coach or mentor in your chosen field. Like I mentioned above I started to replicate the traits of people whom I admired and looked up too and in many ways wanted to be like. A mentor or coach can help you move forward more quickly and confidently as they have the experience to guide you in fewer steps than what is normally possible on your own. They can provide motivation, inspiration and guidance to keep you going, especially when the going gets tough. Look at all top athletes, businessmen and women and entrepreneurs…most have a coach behind them, keeping them at the top of their game.
So as I said in my last blog, whether you want to lose weight, earn more, start a business, learn a new language etc…start your goals now and create the tomorrow you want, TODAY.
To your success
Good afternoon all,
