A Simple Progression

One of the things that drives me nuts is how people can complicate things.  With complication comes increased difficulty and with increased difficulty comes potential deterrence.  So, why make the idea of what it takes for you to succeed in life overly complicated?  It may deter you from achieving that success!

Achieving success is as simple as a three step progression.  Follow this simple progression and you will reach your dreams.

First, think hard about what it is that you want to achieve in your life.  In other words, clearly define what success looks like for you, ultimately.  Not only that but progress your thinking to the level of defining how it will feel for you when you do reach success.  Having gone through that progression of thought, move to the next progression.

Whenever I speak to people about what it takes to be a success, I like to put one of the keys in this context:  “A goal only in the head is absolutely dead!”  If you are going to ultimately live your dream, you can’t think your way there.  You have to progress to the level of words.  In other words, you have to write your goals in copious detail and, also, verbalize them to others.  Taking this progression in the process introduces a whole new dimension to your commitment to achieving your dreams.

The final step in the three step progression to success is the most powerful of all three.  You can think about, write about and speak about your dreams and goals but if you don’t make this final progression you will fail…period!  The final progression is you must ACT on your thoughts and words.  Your thoughts and words help define what success will be for you but it is your actions that will ultimately deliver it.

See what I mean?  Your success is a simple progression.  Go for it!
