6 Tips For Success In 2019

1. Forget Resolutions - Make a Plan. Nobody accomplishes anything of significance by trying to do it all at once. Most people want to magically move from point A to point Z, but don't have even an outline of a plan to get from point A to point B, and from point B to point C and so on, While it's easy to Picture Yourself & the Life You Want, the difficult part is actually getting there. Break lofty goals up into manageable steps and your likelihood of success increases tenfold.

2. Focus on Your Strengths. Backsliding is not failure. Itís easy to see what we haven't accomplished, rather than the steps that we have taken. Any effort or energy you give to what you haven't accomplished will only slow you down. Celebrate every accomplishment, keep the momentum, and look toward the future. Make sure you maximize your strengths, and minimize your weaknesses.

3. Learn Something New. There is no better way to continually evolve than to make a commitment to life-long learning. I meet people everyday who acts like they have nothing more to learn. Even the biggest 'know-it-all' doesn't know everything. Education paves a pathway to success. I believe you can never be too educated This year, take a class about something of interest to you, be it personal or career oriented - you've probably been meaning to but haven't gotten around to it. If not this year, then when?

4. Live Gratefully and Give Something Back. Be aware of the wonderful things in your life and find an outlet to give back a fraction of what you enjoy, such as a charity, animal shelter, church group, mentoring program or career training center. Giving back feeds our souls and enables us to gain perspective on all that we have and how we can become even more successful.

5. Spend Time with Positive People. Surround yourself with people who support your goals and endeavors. Spending time with people that bring us down or focus on the negative side of things challenges our focus and positive attitude - both of which are essential to achieving success.

6. Relax and Take Time for Yourself. You canít achieve any goal if you are uninspired, overworked, and out of balance. Take time out and be good to yourself. Read the good books you never seem to have time for. If you are not adding knowledge to your mind and nurturing your soul you canít grow.

Focus Point

90. Share the load!

A great way to off-load some of the natural pressure you're dealing with is to engage the services of a qualified sales or corporate coach. This can lighten your load so you can focus on important selling tasks and client-related action items. Also, because many of us are working out of our homes or functioning as sole proprietors, we can often use this regular interaction to keep us on track and committed to our business success.

This kind of "teaming" can also bring two points of view into the equation when focusing on a specific problem or concern. Often, gaining a different perspective will make all the difference!
