Is There A Formula For Success?

The formula for success is as different as we are individuals. However, there are a few things that successful people do and do consistently.

First, exercise daily.  This helps keep stress down and keeps you physically strong.  Success is an uphill climb.  You will need everything you got to make this happen.

Next, get your day started early. This means waking up, maybe do your exercise, read and prepare for the day. Eat breakfast! You cannot run at top speeds without fuel.

Use a calendar.  Calendars organize our time.  I personally put all my work and personal appointments on one calendar.  This keeps me from over scheduling.  It  keeps my  focus on what is important to complete that day.

I have always been a person that reviews my schedule the night before to be sure I am where I am supposed to be on that first appointment of the day.  As a successful entrepreneur and mom, I need to be sure to be on time and where I am supposed to be.  Additionally, don’t forget to schedule for drive time.

Very Important: Include in your scheduling “me” time.  I find if it is not on the calendar, I won’t get it!

Lastly,  have an accountability person or team.  It should be that business profession that would hold you accountable.  I have found that since doing this, I make sure to get the stuff I hate to do, done.  I have also created some tools and strategies to make those tasks easier for me.  I still don’t like to do it but knowing that my accountability partner is going to ask, I will get it done.

These four tips will jump start your day with focus. Add determination – and you are on your way to success. For more information, please contact me: Email: kim@creating-a-buzz.com  Phone: (727) 919-1429

Brené Brown is one of my favorite speakers/authors..

I am in the process of reading another book Brené Brown has written.

This book is titled Daring Greatly.  She has quoted Theodore Roosevelt’s Man in the Arena quote:

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”

When you are going where no one else has gone before you in your group or family – becoming an entrepreneur, creating art or music, or taking risk on an investment, look for feedback and encouragement from someone that is in that arena.

Loved ones, friends and family, might not be the best people to seek council or advise — as much as they might have your best interest at heart – but being in the arena requires taking risks, being courageous, following your heart and most people do not do this.  They live a safe life from the bleachers.

If you are going to live YOUR life, do so from inside the arena and pay no attention to those that might judge you from the sidelines.
