Success Is a Decision!
Some people say “Success is a journey, not a destination.” And while I agree with that, I also
think success is something else.
Success is a decision.
That’s right. In building healthy habits, in achieving goals, in work, in our relationships… whatever: We choose our own results.
I’m often asked how to succeed at something – like, losing a certain amount of weight, for
example. The solution is simple: Decide you’re going to do it.
Here’s what I mean – or, rather, what I don’t mean.
You don’t get what you want by waiting for it to magically happen.
You don’t get what you want by hoping someone gives it to you.
You don’t get what you want by quitting when it gets difficult or takes longer than you’d
Instead, success comes from:
1. Understanding your motivations
2. Doing your research and choosing appropriate goals
3. And then committing – really committing – to do whatever is necessary.
That’s what successful people do. They don’t rely on talent and hope and good luck, although
those things can play a part.
But even the rare few who are talented, hopeful and lucky also plan smartly and work hard.
They adopt a champion’s mindset and learn to stay above their emotions, while accepting that
doubt and missteps are part of the deal.
And they build consistent habits that often take time to pay off.
Success then isn’t just ONE decision, but a constant effort to make the next positive choice.
If you can say yes, then you’re halfway there.
Stop Existing & Start Living!
With April coming to a close and us being a quarter through 2023 I have been doing a ton of reflection on what my goals and desires were in all areas of my life when the year kicked off… I am sure that you have too! That’s why I created a 2023 Reflections Journal and would love to share it with you so that you can review what you wanted at the start and where you are at now + how those goals have transformed and what needs to happen to get you the results you desire. If you would like a FREE copy of this 2023 Reflections Journal please take a quick moment to provide me with your name and email so that I can send it to you. 🙂
