What is it that drives the uber-successful? Have you ever wondered why some people seem to keep on winning year after year? Are they doing anything different than the rest of us? Some of the best advice I’ve ever received from my mentors when I was on a roll was simply, “Keep doing what you’re doing?”
More often than not we get too impatient with ourselves and our seemingly slow progress. It’s like we’ve planted a bunch of seeds and we keep digging them up every day in order to see if they’re sprouting. This over activity can easily halt the growth we are expecting.
Successful people tend to keep doing what they’re doing because it works for them. They will continue doing there thing until it doesn’t. When this happens, they’ll quickly change their work and thinking habits to align with activities that again starts to bring in successful results.
The key, of course, is to know when to be patient, get out of the way and let things grow and when to stop and say, “enough is enough, here’s what we’re gonna do NOW!”
Everyone has the ability to change their habits for better or for worse. Everyone has the ability to align with successful ideas and get more disciplined. Everyone has within them a successful way forward. A way to move around, over or through obstacles that are slowing their progress.
What seems to be most crucial is the ability to step outside your current situation and look at your challenges in a fresh light and formulate a different perspective. Imagine if your best friend or colleague would come to you with a similar challenge. How would you advise them? What would you say to calm their nerves and get their emotions, energy and thinking moving towards a solution.
This my friend is learning the ability to coach yourself. When you can do this you can be your own wise mentor. It’s been said that the truth lies within.
So it is!
