Coaching Tip: Success – What does it take?

With many clients this month we are focussing on the importance of taking immediate, decisive action to get RESULTS – and yes, that takes courage, determination and self-discipline.

What are the secrets to success? According to Anthony Robbins, it’s simple: “The secret of success is … that there is no secret. It’s called work your ass off and add more value to people’s lives than anyone else does.”  We love it.

Brian Tracy has this formula for success: “Number one: decide exactly what it is you want, write it down, and make a plan to achieve it. Number two: determine the price you are going to have to pay to get it, and then resolve to pay that price.” Sound like a challenge? Yes, it is. Remember that if owning and building a successful business was easy, everyone would be doing it!

At Yellow we absolutely believe in success. We also believe in planning, working smart, and taking necessary action to achieve goals. It’s not always easy, but the results are worth it.

As stated in our Vision & Values, we know that success requires determination, which is self-discipline in action – the courage to think, the courage to plan, and most importantly the courage to act.

It’s easy to dream big. The challenge – and fun – comes in setting your goals, putting an action plan in place, and taking steps every day to make your dreams a reality.

Here is just one simple tip for a routine task that will set you on the path to success:

Write a “to achieve” list: As you finish each day, writing a “to-do” list for the following day ensures you are on track the next morning. But how about writing a To Achieve list? Instead of Call 10 prospects, how about Make 3 sales? This helps you focus on the result as well as the specific action. Try it and let us know how you go.
