What Do They Do

What Do They Do

8. Imagine.

Make a list of 3-6 people that you admire. Then write down what it is that you admire about them. Is it in their personality, what they do, their attitude, how they dress, how they live, who they spend time with, what their family life is like? This is useful in creating a new self image for yourself and how you want your life to look like. Then create a 1 year and a 5 year goal sheet. Go 10 and 20 years if you're inclined. What does your life look like in a year, or five? Who are you with, how and where do you live, what are you doing, how do you spend your time everyday? When you do this be very specific, do it in great detail. The more specific and detailed the better. You have to know exactly what you want. Say for example you want a new car. If you go to the dealer and say I want a new car, they won't know what to suggest for you. You have to tell them the specific features and colors you want, then they can help. It is the same with your life dreams, you need to be clear and specific.

Create an identity of the successful you. Not just a thought but your identity of being a person who is a winner. When you do this you will act like a winner. You will find ways to get things done. You will carry yourself different. People will respond differently to you.

Just as a side note, be sure to be clear about what success is. Success is not all about $$$'s.

Success is More Than Money

Success is More Than Money

9. Care For Yourself.

Take a break, a day off, a vacation. Put your goals out of your mind.

I find when I'm struggling that I need to walk away from it for a little bit. I come back with a fresh view and sometimes the answer comes right to me.

Eat healthy food. I've found how many foods affect how I feel. Sugar and caffeine make my head spin. Dairy products make my body painful. What you eat has a very big impact on how your body feels and how how clear your mind is.

Take time to exercise. Even if it is simply a walk everyday. If you have a dog -- ask him or her to take you for a walk. There are so many ways to be more active. It will not only benefit your body but you will see a difference in your mind.

Get enough sleep, you know this, enough said. If you have trouble sleeping there are all kinds of herbs, homeopathic and even minerals to try. I've used magnesium because it relaxes the muscles. All I'm sayin' is listen to your body and take care of yourself.

Have a healthy, motivated day!
