1. Be very specific about your goal

1. Be very specific about your goal

The first step to success is to know exactly what you want. Sounds simple right? Sadly, most people never seem to get what they want, simply because they are not clear about what they want in the first place!

unless you have a specific goal, there is nothing tangible you can focus your time and energy on. This is why most people find themselves going in all other directions, ending up nowhere.

Unless you have a specific target, you cannot develop an effective strategy to get there.

2. Develop a strategy

2. Develop a strategy

The second step in the Ultimate Success Formula is to develop a strategy that will move you towards your outcome. Again, the more specific your goal is, the easier it is to develop an appropriate strategy.

You can have all the drive and energy, but without the right strategy, you will never get what you want. Every outcome is possible, given an effective strategy.

An excellent way to develop a strategy is to model the strategy of someone you admire, who is also in the place you want to be.

3. Be consistent

3. Be consistent

The third step is to get yourself to take consistent action, using the strategy you have crafted. This will move you, step by step, towards your goal. Consistent action is what separates thinkers or dreamers from doers.

“Success isn’t always about greatness. It’s about consistency. Consistent hard work leads to success. Greatness will come.” — Dwayne Johnson

4. Turn failure into feedback

4. Turn failure into feedback

When you follow your strategy and take consistent action, there are only two possible things that can happen. The first possible outcome is that you experience success by moving towards or achieving your goal, and the second possible outcome, of course, is failure.

THREE WAYS PEOPLE DEAL WITH FAILURE

  • Give excuses, blame, and give up.
  • Keep trying the same thing over and over again
  • Get feedback, change strategy, and take action until you succeed

5. An empowering belief system

5. An empowering belief system

Our beliefs act as the ‘on’ and ‘off’ switch to our brain and our inner resources. Without the right beliefs in place, none of the other steps in the success formula matter.

If you believe that you don’t have what it takes to learn, the capability or that ‘it is too difficult,’ then you are more likely to quit than change your strategy and take action until you succeed. So an empowering set of beliefs is truly one of the keys you need to seal in, to set the rest of the formula in motion.

6. Values

6. Values

Values are like emotional hot buttons that drive our behavior. They are what we value as important in our lives.

All of us regard values like ‘success,’ ‘freedom,’ ‘security,’ ‘love,’ and ‘happiness’ very differently. It is the way we internally rank these values that determine the choices we make and the actions we take.

Some people are driven towards reaching their goals because of their need to feel secure. Others may be driven by a different value, like freedom.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Giovanna Scalzone
