The 5 Secret Keys to Success

In this article, you’re going to learn about the 5 secret keys to help you accomplish your goals faster.

1.     Choose a smart goal

You can set a goal any which way you like.

However, if you’d like to increase your chances of success, then you better set a smart goal.

A smart goal has the following characteristics:

  • it’s Specific
  • it’s Measurable
  • it’s Attainable
  • it’s Relevant
  • it’s T

You can’t choose only 2 or 3 characteristics.

A good goal has all 5 characteristics present.

If you don’t want to waste your time, and want to reach your goal quickly, then make sure you choose a SMART goal.

2.     Be passionate

You can have a smart goal, but if you’re not passionate about it, you can easily lose motivation.

Having the passion for something lights a fire under you – if you don’t get that fire you don’t particularly care about your goal.

Choose a goal you are passionate about.

That way, when the obstacles come (and they will!), you’ll be able to persevere and keep chasing your dreams!

 

3.     Learn from failures

It may sound surprising at first, but failure really is one of the secret keys to success.

When you’re chasing something, a life goal, for instance, you’re probably not going to succeed on your first try.

It may take you ten tries or maybe even a hundred tries.

No matter how many times you fail, you still take something away from the experience – you learn something.

And you can use that knowledge towards your goals – you now know what’s working and what’s not.

4.     Network

As the saying goes, it’s not what you know, it’s who you know.

In many cases, this rings true.

If you know the right people, you can get your foot in the door.

Always be nice and helpful to everybody you meet.

Don’t underestimate the power of building relationships, they might help you reach your goals faster.

You never know who is watching or listening, always be professional and respectful of others.

5.     Don’t aim for perfection

Aiming for perfection is equivalent to setting yourself up for failure.

Perfection is such a lofty goal, often impossible to achieve.

Do you know of anybody who’s perfect?

I don’t think so.

So, there’s really no reason why aiming for perfection is even a thing.

Instead of perfection, aim for excellence or being the best you can possibly be.

Being the best is not the same as being perfect.

Even if you’re the best, you still have room to grow.

When you’re perfect, there’s simply nowhere else to go, you’re already perfect.

How to Experiment Your Way To Success

Just because you’ve planned your goals right down to the last detail doesn’t mean you shouldn’t experiment and see what else works.

Maybe what you’ve envisioned, during the planning stages, isn’t going to work in real life, so you look around for alternatives.

But you don’t know which of the available options you’ve found is going to be a good fit for your business or life goals.

So, what do you do then?

You experiment!

Successful people have all experimented their way to success.

If one method’s not working, they use another one.

They don’t shut their brains down and surrender if one method’s not working.

Let’s use driving as an example:

You’re trying to get to a city that is 1,000 miles away, and you’ve got your entire trip mapped out.

You’ve got a good old-fashioned map with you.

Along the way, you discover the map is not updated, and the roads are blocked for some reason.

You don’t know which way to go and there’s nobody else there.

So, you drive around, you explore until you find the correct road that’s going to take you back to the highway and get you closer to your destination!

See, that wasn’t so bad.

If you’ve got plenty of gas (your motivation), you can pretty much go anywhere you like.

You can always gas up when you’re running low, so you can continue your journey.

Another benefit of experimentation is that you can have fun, and you learn something new.

Going with the previous example, you learn new roads, you learn which road is going to take you to where you want to go.

That’s new knowledge for you.

You may have planned for the journey, but it’s almost always never going to go according to plan.

Just enjoy the process.

You’re in control of your journey – you’re sitting in the driver’s seat.

Don’t let anybody else dictate where you’re going to go.

You can ask for help when you get lost, and you can take their advice, or you can explore the back roads and learn as much as you can about the location and your ultimate destination.

And that’s it!

That’s basically how you experiment your way to success!

Eliminate 7 Mental Blocks Stopping You from Success

The biggest roadblock to success is you.

External obstacles can be removed, but if it’s you yourself who’s blocking the road, then it’s going to be so much harder for you to succeed.

In this article, you’re going to learn about 7 mental blocks you need to get rid of, to succeed in life.

1.     Doubt

When you doubt yourself, it’s going to be hard to convince anybody else to trust that you can do what you’ve set out to do.

The first thing you must do is convince yourself and believe that you can succeed in reaching your goals.

2.     Fear of failure

Many people fear failure, but the truth is there’s really nothing to be afraid of.

Treat failure as a mentor, a training and learning opportunity.

Failing can be a pre-requisite to success.

3.     Fear of success

People who fear success often think their lives are going to change for the worse, that they’re going to lose their comfort zones, or that their personalities are going to change overnight.

Of course, this isn’t true.

It’s just a mental game your brain is playing with you, daring you to see how far you’ll go to chase your dreams.

4.     Lack of self-belief

If you don’t believe you’re going to accomplish your goals, then you’re not going to accomplish it.

It’s as simple as that.

When you lack self-belief, you’re not going to have the motivation or the drive to succeed.

5.     Getting too emotional

When you get too emotional, you often fail to think logically.

Many wrong decisions have been made by far too many people simply because they let their emotions get the best of them.

6.     Making things too complicated

Sometimes we tend to overthink things when a simple solution is just right in front of us.

What should often be a simple fix to a simple problem can lead to large sums of money going down the drain.

7.     Thinking inside the box

When you’ve explored the entire box, and you can’t find the answer, then you’ve got to think outside the box.

There’s nothing wrong with getting creative.

If it can get you to where you want to go, then follow it! 

Hypnosis is an easy and effective way to overcome limiting beliefs and mental blocks that are holding you back.
