What do the rich and successful have in common? Quite alot actually!
I was lucky enough to spend an amazing weekend away with friends at there Kawau weekend house, and after an amazing day on the boat, where I saw dolphins for the first time!! We started chatting about life and success and they shared with me how they got to where they are today, and what they deem the keys to their success.
When a millionaire tells you how to get your shit together you listen! And I’m going to share with you my key takeaways.
1. Make your bed every morning.
Easy right! But they all do it -something about a tidy-life tidy-mind. They all said when they’ve had a bad day you can guarantee when they got home the bed wasn’t made!
2. Write a LONG list of goals, and read them every morning.
One of them still had their original x3 pages from when they first began their journey! This one’s actually a little harder than it sounds. It’s not very often that we actually ask ourselves what we really want, especially at a x3 page level!! But this ones also fun, you get to really allow your self to dream. The goals should also be a bit scary and take you out of your comfort zone.
To take your goals a step-further, grab your current main goal and make a mind-map. Your goal in the middle of the page with all the little steps and things you need to do coming off it.
3. Write a to-do list every morning.
I couldn’t believe they did this every morning! They also said you have to word each item beginning with I will…. For example Today I will eat healthy and nourishing food, Today I will do the washing… You get it.
4. Add an Elephant every day.
What’s your elephant in the room? An elephant is something you need to do daily towards you goal, and you just grab one from your mind map! You need to do daily, consistent actions towards you’ll goals and before you know it you’ll be ticking them off. You need to add your elephant to your daily to-do list.
5. Treat Yo Self
Maybe one of my favs! This doesn’t mean spending money you don’t have, this just means allowing yourself to have the things you want. If your too cheap with yourself and always buying the budget version unstead of what you truley desire the universe will decide your cheap and don’t deserve the best. You get back what you put out! So make sure your telling the universe you deserve the best in life.
6. You are who you hang out with.
This is their last piece of advice, and I’m taking it as a compliment!
You better believe I’ve been making my bed! And I’ve started working on my goals and daily to-do lists. Doing the mind map makes my goals seem so much easier to manage and it’s easy to add an Elephant to my day.
Here’s to success guys!! It’s ours for the taking. I truley believe we can live the life we dream off – and my weekend away showed me alot of people actually do and that they’re more than happy to cheer me on and help me on my journey by sharing their keys to success.
