10 Tips for Success

10 Tips for Success


Recently I participated in the 10 Tips in 10 Days challenge on Linked in.

You had to shoot 10 short videos (about 2 mins length) each with a tip on how to make progress in a certain area. Of course, I talked about Success.

I received a lot of great feedback about the videos. In fact, one of my clients used them as a basis for a two hour workshop for his team.

So rather than letting them disappear into the ether, I thought I would let you know all about them.

The easiest way to see them is to head to the Challenge Page on the Get More Success show. That way you can watch the videos, listen to all 10 as an audio or have a look around the whole podcast.

The other option is to click on the individual links below. No matter which ones you click on, be sure to look at the last one. (It's my favourite!)

The 10 Tips are:
1 - Focus on Freedom - Define what Success is for you
2 - Be Brand Smart - How you act, dress and interact has an impact
3 - Manage Your Stress - Guest Expert Winston the Wonder Poodle shows how best to manage any stress you may have
4 - Get Perspective - Don't be overwhelmed with what is going on. Step back and get a decent perspective on what is happening in your life
5 - Celebrate Success - If you can make Celebrating Success a habit, Success becomes a Habit. 
6 - Use the Right Tool - Without the right tools for the job, you can take far longer and still not do it right
7 - Be of Service - Contributing to others and focussing on their success will help you achieve yours
8 - Consider your Image - A behind the scene look at getting a custom made suit
9 - Have Fun - Life is too important to be taken seriously
10 - Stuff That! - Who needs rules and guidelines. Sometimes you have to say Stuff That (or words to that effect)

How did you like the challenge?
Was there anything that spoke specifically to you?
What actions will you take because of what you saw?

Let me know if you need any help to achieve more success in your life.

What Is Success?

What Is Success?


Recently I took part in the 10 Tips in 10 Days challenge. That's where I had to create 10 short videos to be published once a day.

Each video had to give some kind of tip or advice on an area in which I had expertise. In a coming post I will like to all 10 tips for you, but today is all about the first tip.

That tip is to understand for you What is Success. As host of the Get More Success show, I have asked almost 100 people how they define success. Everyone has a different definition but a recurring theme is that of Freedom. Click on the image above to see the short video about it.

Famously, Ralph Waldo Emerson had this to say about success:

 

To laugh often and much;
To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children;
To earn the approbation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends;
To appreciate beauty;
To find the best in others;
To give of one’s self;
To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition;
To have played and laughed with enthusiasm and sung with exultation;
To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived

This is to have succeeded.


So as you consider your future, how do you define success for you?

It could be in money, it could be in experiences, it may even be how you related to those in your life. The key thing is to know that there is NO wrong answer, and no answer to be embarrassed about as long you have something you are aiming for.

It is interesting that many people have no idea what success it. They still work hard and and continue moving forward but don't know what they are aiming for.

So Dear-Reader, what are you aiming for?
How will you define success?
What is it that you focus your energy toward?

Only by knowing what Success is will you know where to best focus your attention.

Let me know if you need any help pulling those ideas together.

It's 2019 (Financially)

It's 2019 (Financially)



Yet again, time has ticked over and here in Australia it is now the start of the new 2019 financial year.

So where are you?

I have spoken to some of my friends on colleagues who talk about "getting ahead", "putting some money away" or "trying to get some leverage". A recent post on LinkedIn talked about property prices in Sydney 20 years ago and the majority of the commenters were along the lines of "If only I knew", "I wish I had a time machine" or "I shouldn't have sold when I moved".

I love the Chinese saying, "The best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago, the second best time is today."

Whether that is an actual tree, a money tree or a family tree, the saying is true.

The image above is where my gorgeous wife and I will be planting approximately 60 fruit trees. You can see the divots (and if you squint you may be able to see the pink X's) where we are getting the local bloke with a digger to dig the holes for the trees. We will be planting another 20 or so Golden Ash at another place on the farm and, all going to plan, next year we will be putting in quite a few slow growing trees like Oak and Maple as well as another 20 Claret Ash.

To be quite blunt, we will be dead before some of these trees reach their maturity and magnificence.

The fruit trees alone will take five years to get to a stage they will bear fruit. I suspect some trees may die as we fine tune irrigation, try and keep the kangaroos and other animals at bay.

But the second best time to plant is today.

Will you be in the same financial position this time next financial year?
What will you do to "Plant your tree"?
What financial plans do you have to put in place?
Who do you need to speak to to get the facts and make it happen?

Let 2019 be the year that you trees and financial future flourish.

Let me know if I can help at all.

PS I was thrilled to be able to chat with Jonathan Holloway - Director of the Melbourne festival. We talked about some of his festivals and what it takes to make a successful festival on a global scale. Click here or on the image below to hear our chat and don't forget to subscribe to the show.
