Do You Have Stickability?

Part 5 of 12 from Qualities of Highly Successful People

(continued from last week…)

#3 – Stickability

This is that staying power that makes the difference. P. T. Barnum was one of the greatest showmen to ever live and by far one of the most successful salesman, created the phrase stickability. He meant – you hang in there, you have the strength to see things through, you don’t vacillate, you don’t procrastinate, you go for it. When you want it, you make it happen.

The world’s greatest achievers are those who have focused on their goals and been consistent in their efforts, stickability.

Did you ever have skills you needed to gain to run certain kinds of tools or to manage and handle certain types of technology? It didn’t happen instantly, did it? No, it happened because of stickability, you stayed in there, and kept after it, you thought about it, you probably had some errors but you kept working at it.

Are You Acting With Proprietary Interest?

Part 4 of 12 from Qualities of Highly Successful People

(continued from last week…)

#2 – Self-Reliance

One of the best definitions of accountability and reliance I’ve heard is acting from what is termed “proprietary interest”.

If you think about back to the days of the old west, who was the proprietor of the general store? Normally it was person who owned the store because it was a fairly small operation, usually just one person running it or maybe a man and a woman together – husband and wife, but they were self-reliant and accountable. They were the proprietors.

Launching Your Success

Though Al Hafed had many qualities of success, some of them he had perverted and they ultimately ended in his demise.

You don’t need to fall in to the traps he did. You have the power and the ability to make your life whatever you desire it to be. So, let’s begin to look for a moment, what some of these qualities are of the highly successful.

#1 – Drive

You have to have the determination to work harder than most and make sure things get done. You pride yourself on seeing things getting completed and you take charge when necessary. You drive yourself with purpose and you align yourself with excellence.

Success Begins Within Yourself!

Part 2 of 12 from Qualities of Highly Successful People

(continued from last week…)

He said, “I want a mine of diamonds.” And so he lay awake all night and early in the morning he sought out the priest.

“Will you tell me where I can find these diamonds?” he said to the priest.

The priest said, “Diamonds! What do you want with diamonds?”

“Well, I wish to be immensely rich!” said Al Hafed. “But I don’t know where to go.”

“Well” said the priest, “If you will find a river that runs over white sand, between high mountains, in those white sands you will see diamonds.”

“Do you really believe there is such a river?”

“There are plenty of them. All you have to do is to go and find one, and then you have them.”

Al Hafed said, “I will go.”

Where Are Your Acres of Diamonds?

Part 1 of 12 from Qualities of Highly Successful People

What do you need to find and develop within yourself to be successful? The answer really comes from looking around at those other people who have created success in a variety of fields. These traits sound simple but they lead to remarkable results. You have done them all, but how consistently do you do them?

If you really want to have high level success in your life you should cultivate yourself just as you’d cultivate a garden for the best yield. These attributes are shared by successful people everywhere. It doesn’t matter where you are in the world or what you start with or what you have today. It’s what you do with what you do have.

Are You Putting Rocks In Your Own Path?

Part 11 of 11 from Mission Success

(continued from last week…)

Challenge is Healthy

So while you are giving yourself a little bit of impetus to move, you also make sure to breathe and keep yourself in check. Educational research has well proven that a small amount of tension makes your brain work a little faster but you go just beyond this very small amount, it inhibits the ability of the brain to work. There are then too many neurons firing for it to optimize its links to all the various nerve endings that you are trying to learn and grow and access your memory from.

A little tension is a good thing, but too much slows you down. It inhibits your immune system, it inhibits your brain, it stops you from being able to work on your goals.

So relax. Relaxing does not mean that every five minutes you need to take a nap or that every day you have to make sure that you spend two and a half hours meditating (though it is well proven that meditation is very good for you.)

Do You Take Responsibility?

Part 10 of 11 from Mission Success

(continued from last week…)

Eliminate “Try”, Move Into “Can”

You need to see what you can do, not try to do but what you can do and will do! Don’t allow yourself to be blocked by other people’s inhibitors for them. Perhaps sometimes we have to allow our assumptions to be there and at the same time we have to think, “That assumption may or may not be true.” You have to look at it, you have to see the truth and then you also have to ask “What part of it inhibits me?”

Keep asking this question, “What are the barriers I throw up for myself?”

There is a way to make a move into your future and it all depends on you. Are you going to allow yourself to sit or are you going to give yourself a little bit of pressure to move? Every human does a little better when they have goals and objectives; a deadline is much more likely to be achieved if you set one. There are people who really resist setting a deadline because it puts feet to the fire. Read more »

Are You Inhibiting Your Own Success?

Part 9 of 11 from Mission Success

(continued from last week…)

Focus Your Attitude & Actions

Dr Albert Ellis, one of the leading researchers in the field of cognitive psychology said, “The best years of your life are the ones which you decide your problems are your own. You do not blame what’s happened to you on your mother, the ecology, or the president. You realize that you are the creator of your own destiny.”

Sir Winston Churchill, as he was addressing parliament said, “Every job is a self-portrait of the person who did it. Autograph your work with excellence!”

You are free, you can do whatever you desire to do. You live in universal abundance; there is nothing that can inhibit you but you.

You live within the systems surrounding around you. You work within the roles and responsibilities of the job you have. You live up to those expectations of the people you are closest to in your world to make sure that things flow better and more evenly. And you can build ever better bridges into your future.
