Here’s a recipe for Success in Life using 5 Steps!

Guest blog post

By Dr. Richard B. Greene, PeakPerformerBook.com

5 steps to success in your life

 

I am a huge proponent of using formulas to do things I’ve never done before. Let me give you an example, I don’t consider myself to be a great cook; just a competent one. I really enjoy good food and I view dining and the presentation of food as an art. But here’s the deal, I don’t have to be an artist to make a good meal. I can simply follow a recipe. If I don’t deviate from the recipe, chances are that I’ll make something that is pretty tasty. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t believe I’m a gourmet chef. But I can make a pretty wicked lobster bisque!

The recipe example I just gave can work with other things as well. There are plenty of examples for success in life that are solid. Some of you may have read my book, The Ten Commandments of Peak Performance. In that book, I focus on ten key areas that can significantly increase your levels of performance in life. In a sense, it is also a recipe for increasing your levels of performance so that you are operating at peak efficiency.

I think success works the same way. You can increase your chances for success substantially if you follow a recipe that others have used and that is proven to work. I’ve studied and researched the success factors of people in many different walks of life.

Here are five steps that you can take that I think are very powerful.

Step 1: Follow Your Passions
We live in one of the greatest of times. I truly believe that. Now more than ever, people have a greater chance of living a life fulfilled…whatever that means to you.

I’m a big believer in formulas. It used to be that you had to figure out what the formula for success and happiness was. If you didn’t have good role models or of you grew up in an environment that was not positive, encouraging, or growth oriented, this made things even more difficult.

Fortunately, the internet brings you information, knowledge, encouragement, and stories of success from all over the world. If you have a passion or a direction you want to pursue, chances are great that there is someone else out there that has the same thoughts. That someone has made it and they can help you make it as well!

So…not knowing what to do is a poor choice for not following your passion. Even if you can’t find examples of exactly what you want in life, you are sure to find things that are similar. From that you can extrapolate. Sure, it’s going to take some work. But everything is possible in life if you have the desire and passion.

The conventional wisdom of finding a job, slugging away for 20, 30, or 40 years, and hanging onto that job at all costs just doesn’t serve people very well. In fact, in most cases it never did. Research shows that 52.3% of people are dissatisfied with their careers or vocation.
Do what you love, and you’ll find that your life will work out. You will be fulfilled. You will make enough to pay the bills. You will make a difference to yourself, to your family, and to many others.

Step 2: Immerse Your Mind in Good Stuff
Napoleon Hill said “you become what you think about.” The book of proverbs says something similar; “For as he thinks in is heart, so is he.”

A study recently published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology confirms that you are deeply shaped by the books you read. In fact, just as watching television can chip away at your contentment, the books you read can be negative influences in your life. What you read can reflect the negative aspects of your personality, or it can serve to elevate your thoughts and turn you towards that which is positive.

Watch videos, read blogs, read books, listen to podcasts. Immerse yourself with positive things. Be very conscious and intentional about what you focus your attention on and who and what you spend your time with. What goes into your eyes and ears goes into your brain and into your heart – and it becomes who you are.

Step 3: Associate with Positive People.
Remember when you were growing up and Mom and Dad wanted to know who you were hanging around with? The reason was simple yet very powerful. If you associate with negative people or people that are engaged in activities that are immoral or illegal, you’ll tend to adopt the same thinking and behavior that they have.

It doesn’t matter if you think you are a good person. Just associating with the wrong type of individual can have a negatively profound effect on your thinking…and possibly your behavior. It is important to take stock on who is around you. If you take an honest assessment, you’ll find that not everyone is going to be the model of what you want to achieve in life. This is where some tough decision making must occur.

You may need to disassociate yourself from people that don’t serve you well or are dragging you down in life. This may be painful. You might get judged. You might suffer repercussions. This may be difficult because these people may be close friends or even family. In the case of the latter, you might wish to start by simply limiting your exposure to those people as much as you can.

When you associate with people that are like minded, that strive for the same type of betterment that you do, you’ll find that you will have very powerful allies. They will affect your success and happiness in life on both a conscious and a subconscious level. I call this very powerful action “The Power of Association.” Try it…it can be very effective.

Step 4: Have Gratitude
Successful people have gratitude. They are thankful for all that they have including all experiences; good and bad. They realize one of the keys to success is to “happily succeed rather than try to succeed to be happy.”

Dealing with challenging situations is just a matter of framing them the right way. Challenges are not meant to be seen as hurdles in the road, rather part of the road. It is the challenges in life that shape who we become because that is where the growth occurs.

Focusing on the things you don’t have in life serve no good purpose. There is a reason why one of the Ten Commandments in the bible says “You must not be envious of your neighbor’s goods.” Because it will do nothing but make you unhappy. You’ll be focusing on what you don’t have instead of what you do have.

Living in a state of lack is a huge disservice to yourself. You only see the negative that comes from not having the things you want in life. A better focus is one of abundance. Being grateful for what you have, even when you have to go through pain and failure, allows you to live in an abundant state.

A great exercise to institute the habit of gratitude is to write three things you are grateful for in the morning and in the evening. You should write these things down as opposed to just thinking about them. Writing things out takes them from the abstract into reality. It sets off a chain of commands in the neurons in the brain that lend itself to experiencing something in an entirely different way than just thinking about it.

Step 5: Get a Mentor or Coach
Too many people, the idea of getting a coach to help take them where they have never gone before is not a consideration. Not because they are against it. But because they just don’t understand the power and the value that coaching can bring. Many people think of athletics when it comes to coaches. And, that’s probably a good example of what a coach can do. An athlete who has a coach is more likely to:

  • Recovers more quickly and effectively from a bad performance
  • Learns more from a bad, and in fact every, performance
  • Develops more effectively during practices
  • Learns their talents and strengths more quickly and effectively
  • Creates a strategy to leverage their strengths to their advantage
  • Achieves more during that season

Putting athletic performance aside…wouldn’t it be great if you could do all of those things as well in your life? Of course it would! Hiring a coach to help take you places you have never been before is a very good investment.

If you are reticent to spend money on a coach you should ask yourself two questions: 1) What is the cost of failure? and 2) What is the cost of wasted time because you don’t know the best way to get what you want to achieve?

A good coach can listen to what it is you say and provide sold advice. They can be a confidential sounding board; a trusted advisor who can ask you provocative questions that help you uncover what your gifts, strengths, values, principles, true dreams, goals, and aspirations. A good coach can take all that information and help put you on the path to making those dreams become reality. Now…what’s that worth?

Like any recipe, formula, or set of instructions, these five steps are a guide. You have room for interpretation of how to execute them, but none should be discounted. They are all just as important as flour or wheat is to baking bread. If you leave those ingredients out the end result will be less than desirable.

Follow these five guidelines and you’ll begin to see a real differences as to the level of success in your life!

Are you wondering WHERE YOU STAND in your marketing…

Biz Quiz Button-TakeBizQuiz

I’ve recently been asked to participate in the “The Global Cutting Edge Coaching Event – Maximizing Your Income While Optimizing Your Client’s Results”.

It’s a FREE virtual event that has brought change agents and problem solvers together from around the world at the request of my friend, Dr. Simone Ravicz, a certified business and life coach and a brain coach.

global cutting edge coaching eventAre you a coach, consultant or other change agent who is spread thin and feeling exhausted because you are doing so many things in your business? Then this is THE EVENT for YOU!

Let me ask you this…

  • Are you less than thrilled with the amount of income you’re able to make or the number of clients you have?
  •  Do you honestly feel that you’re up to date with the latest in proven, effective techniques and that you’re providing your clients with the best coaching possible?

I absolutely get you!  I know that as a change agent, you are compassionate. I know you try to give your clients the best service possible. But, being an entrepreneur means that you are often wearing too many hats – Strategizing, Marketing, Setting up joint ventures and Launches, Managing Technology, and more! Many have found that focusing on all of these tasks takes too much valuable time and energy and it keeps them from focusing on the excellence of their coaching all of the time.

The consequences of wearing all of these hats can result in your passion to help others being interrupted or diminished by the things you must do to keep your business running smoothly. You find yourself unable to give the focus that your clients need and deserve which makes you feel less than ideal about your coaching.

Now – just imagine finally not feeling the pressure of trying to do it all. Imagine a support system of 20 experts behind you so that you can easily see what is out there in terms of various coaching approaches and techniques and being able to quickly learn tips and tools from these top experts.

What would that feel like? Pretty fabulous, right?

All of this is possible, and it begins with YOU.

It can begin with changing how you think and asking yourself a question…Do you think having access to this valuable information would be of help to you in your business?

If you do, then join me and 19 other amazing experts for 10 days of valuable secrets, techniques, tips and inspiration. Again, this Event is FREE and starts on January 23rd. My segment will air on Jan 23rd at 9:00a.m. PST.  Click here to register for this event and get ready to learn to increase your earnings, have more satisfied clients, get more referrals, and start feeling great about doing your best work ever!

 

Here’s to YOUR Success!

Today I want to share with you my 4 Keys to Taking Your Business to the Next Level.  These are important keys to get started in business, so if you are a brand new biz owner, this is for you too!

Have things become stagnant in your business?  Many people come to me with this problem. Many have been in business for a number of years and they’ve made a certain amount of money, but then they are STUCK!  They don’t know what to change; is it their business model or structure?  Maybe it’s their marketing?  They don’t know what they don’t know.  They haven’t experienced a higher level in their business yet.  They can’t see what to implement, add or delete to their marketing and strategy to take their business the next level.  These are things I see a lot when people are wanting to go BIGGER!

4 keys to taking your business to the next levelI want to briefly cover 4 Keys to Taking your Business to the Next Level, to help you get started thinking about each of these steps. And, if you would like to talk about these  with me further, I’ll share with you how to get a complementary call with me.

So here they are – My 4 Keys to Taking Your Business to the Next Level:

  1. Know your Vision – Understand your VISION and get help to see what else is possible. You know there’s a bigger level but you probably need guidance from someone who’s been there.
  2. Strategy – The strategy that has been working for you for the past few years may no longer be working – you may need to shift your strategy and your mindset.
  3. Support – it’s not just about support for your business – yes, those things are great. But you might need some attention in your personal life too.
  4. Confidence – If you don’t have the confidence to go BIGGER – whatever your big VISION is, it’s probably not going to happen. Sometimes, that takes help and work.

Today’s Tip is about Accountability. Do you find it Hard To Keep Yourself Accountable?

Today I want to share a couple of tips about Accountability and Getting Stuff Done. That seems to be a challenge for several of my clients. I’m finding they need to be able to reach me via text, email or a call once or a week or every other week to make sure they are on track with what they should to be doing during the week or month. Sometimes they need reassurance of what their daily tasks should be to reach their goals.

Video Tip Accountabilityx 800It’s easy to get knocked off of your game. You get demotivated or something happens to distract you from your regular routine. Once your energy shifts, it’s hard to get back on track to be productive.

Here are a couple of tips I recommend:

  1. Use a Google Calendar to stay on track and to stay productive. I think it’s better than an ICal because ICAL is only accessible on a Mac. If you are someplace other than your home or office (for example, in a hotel and you have access only to a p.c.), you can’t check your calendar if it’s on ICAL using a p.c. And if you have an Android phone, you can always check your calendar on your phone. If you have a gmail account, you also have an account with other Google products and the Google Calendar is one of them. Google Calendar is so good because you can time block appointments, tasks, and other items on your calendar with color codes. I use it exclusively for business and personal appointments, tasks, events. My assistants can see it and my husband can see it. It’s easy to drag and drop items on the calendar and change things around.
  2. Get a Buddy – someone in your life or your work who is a motivated entrepreneur. Find someone with a task manager mentality. You can have a coach do this for you but you can also have a Buddy. Make sure you meet at least once a week for a quick check in call or email to help each other stay on track with everything you have on your plate. You can share each other’s successes and acknowledge each other. But if a buddy is in the same position as you are in your business, they may not be able to give you sound advice. That’s where a mentor like me comes in. I like being that accountability person for my clients and I’m very accessible in most of my programs including 1 on 1’s. I know that’s type of support is what many business owners need; especially you are just starting out or in the first 3-5 years of your business. You need to know EXACTLY what to do in your business. It’s difficult to listen to an audio that’s targeted to a large audience and convert that advice to what YOU need to do.

Today’s Tip is about Time Management – Entrepreneurs MUST be good at it to Grow Their Business

I recently gave everyone a tip about accountability where I talked a little about Google Calendar and time blocking, but I’m finding there are many entrepreneurs who could do a better job at keeping track of their time. Here’s what I mean by that.

I’ve made several appointments with business owners; a few were my clients but most of them were not my clients, where the other person missed our appointment! Why? Because they hadn’t noted it correctly in whatever system they are using or they simply failed to make a note of the appointment.

This is a problem that can lead to a huge problem for you, the entrepreneur. If you are continuing to miss appointments, not getting things done, or not keeping track of your time, these issues can keep you from moving forward in growing your business.

I want to encourage you to do whatever you need to so you can be sure to get the appointments you make noted correctly on your calendar–so you can keep them. Slow down long enough to note your appointments as you make them into your calendar. And, a great way to better manage what you are doing is to review your calendar each evening so you will know what your priorities are when you wake up. Being able to get going on what’s most important each morning is critical to your success.

Today’s Tip is to help you GET OUT of your FUNK!

Many entrepreneurs have a tendency to “get into our own heads” a little too much or sometimes we let things negatively affect us. This is something I call “getting into a funk”. We sometimes get discouraged or frustrated or unhappy, hurt, or sad. Maybe it was something someone said, did, or didn’t do that put you in a funk for a while, a day, or even longer.

screenshot - get out of your funkIf you had your entire day planned and you let something get to you, it could affect your productivity. Getting into a funk could result in your not getting the things done that you needed to do. One thing I recommend is to have someone to talk to. And if you are in a funk and you can’t shake it, contact them. If you don’t have a coach like me yet, try a buddy. Your buddy should be an entrepreneur as well and be someone who understands your pain and frustration. I don’t recommend calling someone who is working in a job because they won’t understand the challenge you are dealing with. Talk to someone who gets you; someone who can be your cheerleader.

So here’s what you should do. If you are in a funk for 5 minutes and haven’t pulled yourself out of it, I want you to call your buddy – someone you can trust, someone who loves and supports you and let them help you pull out of that funk.

Hope this helps you because I know you want to stay productive in your business so you can make more profits, right?

And feel free to contact me if I can help you with anything to do with your business.

If you’ve been considering hiring a business coach, marketing coach, life coach or some other type of mentor but you haven’t yet and aren’t sure who to hire or what you really need then take a look at this.

If you’ve hired coaches or mentors before for your business, yourself or some other reason and it’s gone well, great. If you’ve hired them and it hasn’t gone well or you for some reason don’t feel like you received the value you deserved, I get it.

All coaches and mentors are NOT created equal. Even those who call themselves a Business Coach, we all do various different things and in different ways so it can be tough looking and evaluating from the outside, thinking you’re comparing apples to apples when you’re in fact comparing apples to oranges.

Not everyone is clear on what they provide and how they work with you as a coaching client. Or what you’ll walk away with after working with them. You want to maybe ask more questions when you’re in the interviewing process rather than making quick decisions from hypey sales pitches.

If you’re not totally convinced yet that you should in fact hire a Business Coach, here are 8 Reasons to Hire a Business Coach Sooner Rather Than Later in Your Business:

  1. Moves you faster to your goals
  2. Learn the things you don’t know that you should know
  3. Prevents you from making many costly or time consuming mistakes
  4. Help you focus on what’s important and prioritize better
  5. Have someone to hold you accountable and get “the right” stuff accomplished
  6. Have someone who “gets you” that you can come to anytime you have an issue or concern
  7. To stay motivated to reaching your goals
  8. You learn from “their mentors” too

7 Things to Consider When Hiring a Mentor or Coach…

Look For Someone Who:

  1. Genuinely cares about your success and happiness and shows it
  2. Gives you a LOT of ACCESS to them in many different ways (you’ll most likely need it!)
  3. Invests in themselves and their business too, continuously
  4. Shares and gives unconditionally to you and others
  5. You can trust
  6. Inspires or motivates you
  7. Teaches or supports you in a way that works for you

I would love to have an in depth conversation with you if you think there’s a possibility that you would be a good fit to work with me. We both make the decision if it’s a go or not after a phone call. I like to really go deep with you to find out your deepest desires, dreams and plans for your life, your business and your ultimate happiness.

I’m the type of person who focuses on the big picture and how everything you’re doing flows together plus all the little details and things that need to get done AND best of all in what order to you’re not wasting your time or money getting this business up and running. I’m about implementation that leads to sales and clients and ultimately the life you want; I do this teaching online and offline marketing and business strategies.

My goal for clients though is ultimately to create your happiest life ever by creating a smooth-running, revenue generating and SUSTAINABLE business that will allow you to do what you love for years to come. My systems and programs teach entrepreneurs the foundational structures and marketing for any business that without them, its near to impossible to make much money or have a life. Often times, to do this, we have to dive into all areas of your business (and sometimes your life) in order to really get your goals, actions and results in alignment.

In many of my programs, coaching and events too I give a ton of access. This is important because when you’re in the midst of really growing your business or doing a lot more marketing you need access to get more done faster.

 

Most clients typically are looking to get into an annual coaching group or mastermind but some prefer one-on-one coaching. I know how important it is to have BOTH when you’re starting or growing your business. I’ve always been a part of a mastermind program, some bigger than others. Most have included one-on-one calls as well as group calls and meetings but these days it’s hard to find such a combination for a reasonable price. (And by reasonable, I mean less than $30,000!)

 

Well, my Live Big Mastermind, combines both – group and one-on-one for maximum support, accountability, training, resources and ACCESS. Check out what’s included in a year of working with me and a small encouraging group of your peers here.

It’s becoming very common, I see, for entrepreneurs, especially women entrepreneurs, to focus solely on their business and/or their career, yet forget one of the most important things they really should focus on. You need to focus on yourself, ladies. It’s time to stop just doing things for everyone else, and it’s time to start focusing on yourself. 

I promise you that when you do this, you will attract more clients. You will make more money. And you will become more successful. However, I also guarantee that if you do not place a certain level of importance on yourself”?your health, your well-being, your love life, your environment, your support system, your time with your family, and your time for self care”?if you don’t focus on these things more, you won’t make the kind of money you really want to make in your business.

It’s just not possible. Instead of focusing on everyone else and everything else to ‘busy up’ your day, thinking that’s what you need to do in order to build your business, have a great life, and make more money, you need to fit in some self-help. Self-help can include many different things to many different women. Here are a few things that my clients, as well as myself, are trying to implement more of in our day-to-day lives so that we can be the most successful businesswomen possible.

  1. Exercise and nutrition. It’s important to eat right and put the right things in your body, to get moving so you’re not stagnant, and to take the time for this. It’s not that difficult to make sure you have healthy chicken, seafood, or vegetables in your refrigerator that you can access every day. If you work from home it’s much easier to eat healthier. If you’re on the go, you need to prep food so you can take it with you, possibly in a container or ice chest. You also need to drink lots of water. You have to pay attention to these things or before you know it you’ll be 50 pounds overweight and unhappy with your body, and that all directly reflects how much money you’re going to make, I promise you.
  2. Time alone / Self-care. So many of us wish we could get a massage, stop to read a book for an hour a day, do our meditation or yoga, take a walk, go for a swim, get to the gym, play with the kids. Whatever your self-care requirements and desires are, why aren’t you making time for them? It can be done in as little as one to two hours a day. Maybe you block out time in the early morning hours, and you block out time before bed to unwind. This is vital to your success because it will feed your soul; therefore, your attraction factor will increase tremendously for clients who see that you are the ideal person to work with or buy from.
  3. Learning and self-development. This is one of the biggest things I think we all do in certain respects. You may listen to a speaker at a luncheon or a teleclass on the phone once or twice a month. Maybe you do read a book pretty often. However, how much are you really investing to implement the things you’re learning, the “aha’s” you’re having? Are you putting those ideas and thoughts into action in your life? Or, are they just motivating you for minutes and then leaving your mind?

These three are areas that I see 90% of my female clients and women entrepreneurs avoiding or ignoring in their day to day. I hate to see that because these are the areas that could ultimately double the revenues in your business if you paid more attention to them. It’s not always about doing more marketing, promotion, or sales. Sometimes it’s about being the best person you can be and being kind to yourself along the way.

If you’re interested in finding out more about how to incorporate these areas into your life and about how they will automatically increase your business, I would love to talk with you in a complimentary business strategy session. I focus on all areas of your business and your life because it all makes a difference to your success. If you’re interested in having one of these private sessions with me, please fill out the questionnaire at www.AskKat.biz now, and I will be in touch. I’ll talk to you soon.
