Everyone wants to have success but most people are just sitting waiting for it to happen. I can tell you that, from experience, that won’t happen.
If you want to have success in your life, business, school or whatever keeps you busy you have to make an effort. Whether you’re trying to become the next online entrepreneur or you’re busy becoming a digital marketer you have to follow the 5 rules in this article.
Short answer; Here are the 5 basic principles for success
- Income Producing Activity
- Invest in yourself
- Mastermind with other leaders
- Learn – Do – Teach
Now, before you leave hear me out. A lot of people find meditation to be something for hippies or the millennials.
Ask yourself this; if you’re not at peace with yourself… how can you be in peace with your business? If you really want to succeed you first need to be happy.
If your mind is ready then you’re ready. Meditation is a powerful tool to keep you happy and calm.
2. Income Producing Activity
You’ve got to keep the money coming in. Why else are you in the business? Every day you need to come up with an activity that will produce some kind of income.
So here’s a challenge for you; If you’re familiar with AdWords (now Google Ads), create 1 ad every day. If you’re not familiar with AdWords try doing a course. You can find multiple courses on YouTube or stick around the end and I will give you a platform that includes lots of tutorials within a huge community.
If you do nothing all day then you won’t have an income.
3. Invest in yourself
Did you know that every person who is successful in his/her business reads around 50 books a year? They also attend at least 6 seminars a year.
Why is that?
Because they keep investing in themselves. There is no lack of knowledge in this world and when you keep on learning you will improve in your sector.
So go to the bookstore and grab a book and start reading. Take 30 minutes a day to just read a book. This tip alone is going to change your life.
NOTE: Please don’t go and read Twilight or a similar romance book.
4. Mastermind with other leaders
If you walk into a room and you are the smartest and richest person there… then you are in the wrong room. Try to mingle with people who have more success in life and learn from them.
I can tell you that everyone who is successful will always give you tips like which books to read or which seminars to attend. The most successful men/women will always try to help you become successful.
Maybe not as successful as them 😛 but at least somewhat.
If you keep yourself in the same crowd then one day you’ll lower yourself to their level instead of you trying to get them to your level. (sounds harsh… I KNOW)
5. Learn – Do – Teach
Learning is step 1 of the whole process. If you do not do what you’ve learned then everything was just for nothing. The time you’ve spent, the money, everything. That’s a big waste. So when you learn something try to do the things you’ve learned. Like the things, you’ve learned in this article.
But, do you know what the best way to learn is? The best way to learn is to teach. When you teach the knowledge you have learned it will stick with you longer than you’d think.
Take for example this article right now. All the things I just mentioned are not something that I came up with. I learned them… I did them… now I’m trying to teach them.
I don’t have any conclusion to write. Just do them and you’ll see that you’re life will improve.
