Thanks for all the GREAT feedback I had from last month’s column on getting the spirit of spirit. This month I’m focusing on the habits of success. I have been privileged to mentor, train and enrich so many people and helped them to truly step into their greatness. And I want to share with you some of the underpinnings to my own success that helped me break through 6 figure sales in just over 6 weeks.
I shared The 7 Temple Secrets of Success in an international teleseminar on success last week, and I’d like to share the key points with you. My intention is to help you step into even greater success. There’s always more! One thing I’ve learned in life is that you don’t have to be ill to get better!
So, are you ready to rock n’ roll! Here we go! If there are any you don’t like, feel free to put them in your Phucket Bucket – it’s the must-have accessory for every home and office!
1. Be in Big Energy/Big Spirit
Rediscover the art of Being. It is the secret of attraction. Take time each day to just Be, and develop a daily spiritual power practice in whatever way fits your belief systems and create for yourself a state of grace and serenity to remember who you are and what you are here to do, and to enjoy this journey we call Life, which is such a precious gift. Connect with a bigger energy inside of yourself, and connect with who you were born to be. Believe, in yourself and in the infinite possibilities this life provides.
Remember who you are, all your blessings, your gifts, your genius, your soul-work. Your spirit was born for greatness, so clear all the decks for it to happen. The world needs you, your authentic voice, what you have to offer, what you have to deliver. So step out of the shadows and into your star quality and light.
Sometimes you think you aren’t ready, aren’t worthy, aren’t good enough. This is a lie! Just smoke and mirrors designed to keep you from your greatness! It’s that thinking that keeps you stuck in the not-so-great groove. So hush that inner voice, dissolve those thoughts You are ready, you are worthy, you are good enough, and the time is NOW to just step into that higher level of success.
This is about faith, not fear. Faith in you, your gifts, this world, this life. Dissolve fear, actualize faith.
2. Be Yourself & Do What You Love
Know yourself, your YOUniqueness and inject that YOUniqueness into all you do! Do what you love, love what you do! That’s really about you honouring who you are. Do what lights you up. Work in your passion, your fire, your light, your zone of genius. Find your sweet spot, know your honey. Where the honey is, is where the money is.
3. Be Bold!
It was Michaelangelo who said: ‘The greater danger for most of us is not that our aim is too high and we miss it, but that it is too low and we reach it.’ Create a bold vision and bold goals for your one wild and precious life. I adore this powerful piece of writing from author Mark Batterson who wrote ‘In a Pit With A Lion On A Snowy Day’, and I share it with you here, hope you love it as much as I do!
The Lion Chaser’s Manifesto
Quit living as if the purpose of life is to arrive safely at death.
Set God-sized goals.
Pursue God-ordained passions.
Go after a dream that is destined to fail without divine intervention.
Keep asking questions.
Keep making mistakes.
Keep seeking God.
Stop pointing out problems and become part of the solution.
Stop repeating the past and start creating the future.
Stop playing it safe and start taking risks.
Expand your horizons.
Enjoy the journey.
Find every excuse you can to celebrate everything you can.
Live like today is the first day and last day of your life.
Don’t let what’s wrong with you keep you from worshiping what’s right with God.
Burn sinful bridges.
Blaze a new trail.
Criticize by creating.
Worry less about what people think and more about what God thinks.
Don’t try to be who you’re not.
Laugh at yourself.
Quit holding out.
Quit holding back.
Quit running away.
Chase the lion.
4. Be Outstanding
Don’t spend your life trying to fit in – stand out! Be outstanding! This is what transformational marketing is all about. You don’t want the push, you want the pull. So give yourself permission, reveal yourself, be visible, create signature programmes and services that stand out and shine.
5. Be The Strategiser
Be the wizard strategiser & alchemist for yourself and your clients. This is about aligned action, and I have 7 Chakra Steps to that aligned action that will blow you away, but you need to come and work with me to discover them! Hey, I’m a business woman, an entrepreneur, an alchemist! Hope you are smiling! And if not, get over it!
What’s your strategy and plan for delivering your service or products that get your clients from where they are to where they wish to be? What’s your brand and brand promise? What makes people want to buy from you? How can you look niche but appeal to mainstream? How can you be more compelling, have more impact and influence?
6. Be The Message & Build Your Tribe
Build the buzz! Engage. Influence. Be passionate. Be known. Know your tribe.
60% of entrepreneurs are social entrepreneurs
70% of customers are women
80% of businesses go to the wall within 18 months
There’s a tribe out there waiting for you! Who is your tribe? Know them! Deliver within your zone of genius what they want – and shine as you do!
7. Leap! JFDI!
Have faith – and LEAP! JFDI! you know what that stands for, don’t you! And have as much fun leaping as you can! Success doesn’t have to be a step-by-step process you know – not when you know how to leap! And remember, action conquers fear. Take imperfect action in the right direction and get your gifts out into this world in a big way. No excuses!
