Welcome to Day 13 of the 25 Day Success Challenge
If you don’t know who Tony Robbins is, you should look him up on YouTube. One of the greatest ideas I learned from Tony is that “Success leaves clues.”
Tony teaches that you can learn the strategies which helped someone else to achieve success. Then you can do the same thing!
Therefore, if you want to achieve success, a fast route to your success can be to model those who have already succeeded. Now, I know you might be thinking that’s a load of old cobbles, but please bear with me on this.
One of the reasons why I designed the 25 Day Success Challenge is so you can model what has worked for me, and what I have learned from 30 plus years in business. I believe in the principal of Modeling Success and I feel you can benefit from this principal too.
Modelling successful people has been crucial in my life over the last decade. It has given me much more focus and direction. And helped me avoid costly mistakes through trial and error.
To be honest with you though, it wasn’t always like this. And I often ploughed straight in without thinking about modeling someone successful.
In my first days of internet marketing, I had never heard of a ‘guru’, and definitely never heard about the concept of ‘Modelling Success’. My first internet business back in 1995 was total trial and error. I was living in America at the time, and had no green card so I couldn’t work. My girlfriend was going to law school every day, so I was home alone trying to make my time the most productive.
Actually the main business I was starting at that time was a custom playing card business, although that turned out a flop and didn’t get even off the ground. Flip forward a few years and this is when I came across the concept of ‘Modelling Success’.
But I Don’t Know Any Millionaires
This is the first thought I had when I first discovered this concept. So how can I model how they live, how they do business?
I’m sure there are hundreds of ways you can model success, but today I want to show you a few ways I have worked out to follow the modelling success principle.
I think it all comes down to conditioning your mind and then your actions. The first place anything starts is from your mind. So I’ve found it effective to keep your mind strong, keep positive and block out any negative thoughts. This is why I showed you the importance of doing your incantations with your morning rituals on Day 2.
There are other ways of conditioning your thoughts like reading positive affirmations and visualizing positive outcomes. I have tried this, but I don’t think affirmations are as powerful as incantations. But they are better than doing nothing. You should give them a try after the 25 Day Success Challenge. Please let me know how you go with them.
In many of life’s tough situations, conditioning your mind can be very effective. Especially when your weak thoughts are the basis of your problems.
There are a lot of people who fail before they’ve even started by using phrases like “I can’t”, “it’s gonna be too difficult”, “it’s easy for him”.
I have read enough books and especially biographies over the years to know that a lot of the most successful people in life, make sure they shut out their negative thoughts. So if you are serious about modeling success, your morning incantations will be a big part of strengthening your mind.
The next part of Modelling Success in my experience is about developing strong habits. There are many marketing and success gurus who swear by goal setting and planning.
I’ll be covering goal setting in the days ahead so I won’t discuss it here. But by knowing what is the most important thing you need to do every day, and then making sure you get it done, it supremely important for your success.
Master this skill and you will achieve more in one month than your competitors will achieve all year or more.
Goal setting and being productive are definitely skills you can model from the masters. And in the next few days during the 25 Day Success Challenge I will show you how.
I have used the skill of mind conditioning and controlling my actions with great success over the last few years. And I can show you how to get real success too. Plus you can get better and better if you follow the strategies I am going to show you.
Without a proven model for success you will face a much harder road to your success.
Your Task For Today:
Write down a list of 5 to 10 people you know, or know of who you think you can model. Is there a local businessman in your area who you would like to meet? Think about why you think they are successful. Do they do anything you know of which helps them succeed?
See you again tomorrow…
Dedicated to your success,
