There are 8 powerful transformations, habits, patterns or things that extraordinarily successful people do, which will help you get the best version of yourself.

1.- They reprogram and understand how the mind works.  Your internal dialogue, knowing how to communicate with your mind is vital.

2.- They have a powerful mind control of the images they project and the words they say to themselves.

Your mind only responds to two things:

  • To the images, you make in your head
  • To the words, you say to yourself

3.- They are familiar (accustomed) with the unknown. Your primitive brain always returns to what is familiar, the detail is when:

  • Known = Negative
  • Unknown = Positive

This is why people (including myself) get stuck in the comfort zone and mediocrity, avoiding doing the unknown for fear of failure or fear of change.

4.- They do what they don’t like or hate first. The secret to success is doing what scares you first or to perform first those difficult tasks that are often left for tomorrow or postponed (procrastination).

5.- They take imperfect mass action – Executing or taking action every day in the direction of your goals is the key and the habit you have to develop.

6.- They delay instant (immediate) gratification for long-term (future) benefits. You have to love and enjoy the process.

7.- They know and have the primordial belief of “I Am Enough“. It is about knowing that YOU ARE SUFFICIENT, that God has given you EVERYTHING to succeed in life.

This will allow you to love yourself and regain your self-confidence.

8.- They can deal with rejection and criticism. If you want to succeed in life, you have to be immune to rejection and criticism.

Do you want to win in 2020?

Of course!

2020-PUBLICIDAD

If you want to have the best year and the start of the greatest decade of your life. You should focus on the following goals (I recommend you to check the first two Goals for winning in 2020).

3.- Block time for social networks.

It means you should never pick your phone randomly and scroll through Instagram, TikTok, Facebook. Also, ever you should never just randomly pick your phone to check email.

Let me put this in perspective, for example, the average daily time spent only on Facebook is 58 minutes, according to a study by SimilarWeb.

Time on facebook

The power to spend 58 minutes during a year only on Facebook is equal to 44 workdays in a year.

Did you know about this? Are you surprised?

This is so simple, no matter if you are an influencer on social media or building a brand for your business or have a personal brand, you should never pick your phone randomly and scroll through social media, you have to schedule it. Just not waste time!

4.- Every day you need to ask yourself the following question. If I had to double… the thing I am doing what would I do? How?

beautiful-businesswomen-career-caucasian-601170

The mentality and importance of asking how would I dramatically increase this thing will force you to realize what is essential and what is not essential to work with excellence daily and be more productive. The idea is to delegate the things that let you focus on another thing.

5.- Find a mentor, a tribe or a mastermind group.

The environment is so vital and very important for your success. Let me remember to Jim Rohn “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with”.

You should talk with leaders (people that are where you want to be) every single week about your performance, goals, strategies, mindset, performance towards those goals.

Goals for winning in 2020

The simplest thing for winning in this new decade is to have a higher intention and deeper discipline. However, you should build habits around these goals.

1.- Quarterly, monthly, weekly and daily goals.

You should never start a Monday without clarity about what happens by Friday. Otherwise, you are going to lose a lot of time. Keeping a schedule is so important. Don’t just make goals, plan time to make progress towards them.

female-865110_1920

Daily you need to ask yourself, what are the primary things that would I love to achieve?

Keep in mind always to execute or take action!

 2.- Morning work preparation.

Even if your day is already scheduled, you need to look at your goals for the day and ask this simple question.

How could I fulfill this day with excellence?

Remember the motivational quote “Good – Better – Best. Never let it rest. Until your good is better and your better is best”. This commitment to continuous improvement should inspire all strive to improve ourselves every day.

The idea is literally to look at the day know what you want of the day and then close your eyes and visualize the successful completion of the day. It means to visualize, think or meditate on each of the major activities of the day and ask yourself, how could I do that with real authenticity and excellence?

The mission is to have mindfulness, visualization, thoughtfulness about how you are going to win the day.

Act As If It Were Already So

Marietta – I know this sounds sort of “ZEN” and all, but an old friend (whom we will call “Pure Energy”) gave me some great advice everyone should adopt.  When making a goal or setting an objective, act as if it has already happened.

For example, say you want to lose 20 pounds. Instead of making tons of plans and crazy exercise goals that you will probably never keep, start acting today like you have already lost the 20 pounds and let your new food choices and daily routines make you healthy.  This can be applied to almost everything.  Start living like you have already achieved your goals, which in your mind, you have.  Try it and let me know how it works out. #NcourageXcellence

Julius “Dr. J” Erving: Meeting A Childhood Idol Who Didn’t Disappoint

Dr-J-photoMarietta, GA – Meeting Julius “Dr. J” Erving (February 5, 1980)

My dad came home one winter night when I was a junior in high school and said that he wanted to take me and my best friend, Tim Foster, to Indianapolis to see Julius “Dr. J” Erving play against his old nemesis, George McGinnis of the Pacers in a classic match-up of 2 former ABA teams.  It was snowing that weeknight and the crowd was  sparse.  There were maybe 5,000 fans because of the snowstorm.  On the court, Dr. J did not disappoint in the overtime win, although it was almost the end of his wonderful career. Watch it here:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X3_1hZDi-qw

After the game, my dad took us boys down to the arena floor where Julius and teammate Bobby Jones had assembled the young fans. They spoke to us for over 30 minutes about making life goals, getting an education, and doing the right things to be successful in life.  They also shared their testimony how Jesus Christ had changed their lives and made them whole beyond the basketball floor.  Julius opened up his gym bag and gave away his sweat bands, shoe laces, and practice shirts.  He was a real class act.  Tim and I were in awe to meet not only a NBA legend and All Star but the same man whose poster we both had on our bedroom walls.  Tim played basketball at Lockland High and I played at Landmark Christian in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Just when we thought the night couldn’t get any better, it did.  Julius and Bobby were staying overnight with the team in a hotel next to the arena and they invited Tim and me to join them in the lobby to talk some more.  My dad, Tim and I walked through the falling snow over to the hotel and sat with two NBA All Stars. We talked about life for another 30 minutes until Julius excused himself to get some dinner before turning in for the night, as the team would be leaving the next morning.  Bobby Jones and Julius were such professionals and both treated Tim and me with such respect, compassion and warmth.

When I speak and write about someone who Encourages Excellence, Julius Erving is one of those professionals who talks the talk and walks the walk.  He has had trials and personal tragedies.  But I believe his faith and inner strength has lifted him up to be someone we can be proud of.  My life was impacted by his encouragement and I will never forget it.  Thanks, Doc.

Trust is earned, not given

imagesGZ70KOHXKennesaw, GA – Frank Chamberlain, a management consultant and company turnaround specialist, listed 8 commandments for building trust in an organization.  Most companies that fall on hard times can trace to a lack of trust in upper management to be honest and do the right things for customers and employees.

Eight Commandments for Building Trust, ALWAYS:

  1. Do what you say you are going to do – this is the essence of integrity.
  2. Accept responsibility for all that happens to you – don’t blame others.
  3. Do the right thing – even when it hurts.
  4. Admit mistakes quickly and openly – it will not be news to anyone.
  5. Respect and care for your people – this begins the powerful cycle of mutual respect.
  6. Ask your people what they need to do better work – then see that they get it.
  7. Listen to your people – your decisions will be better and your relationships stronger.
  8. Recognize good attitude and behavior – this insures you will get more of them.

Dr. Robert Turknett, (http://www.turknett.com) in Atlanta, GA writes that if a company is to thrive in today’s economy, leadership must embrace a code of ethics that will reinforce the contract of trust that employees and management put in practice everyday.  This trust can’t be legislated or written on a slick mission statement, it must be demonstrated from the top to the bottom of the organization.  As Dr. Turknett writes, “the leader of an enterprise must also be the moral leader, but many executives don’t see or appreciate their power as role models in this regard.  Employees take their cue from superiors on how to conduct themselves, and written codes of conduct rarely carry as much weight as the actual actions of those in command.”

The two most important things to have for success. 

scholarships

Marietta, GA  Whether in school or your career, the two most important things to focus on for success according to Father Malachi Matin is:

  1. Critical thInking, and
  2. Effective communication

Why are these two things interrelated? Being able to speak and communicate clearly is crucial for effectiveness while critical thinking makes effort to accomplishment more efficient.

Our education system seems to have drifted away from these two pillars of knowledge. We can also point to numerous instances where people have enjoyed extraordinary success accomplishing these two areas without a formal degree.

Friend, I urge you to develop these two skills and put them into practice. Give of your knowledge freely and encourage excellence in everyone you come into contact with.

Peter Drucker on Encouraging Excellence

Post Capitalist SocietyKennesaw- Peter Drucker emphasized simplicity for decades.  Part of his genius was the ability to take complex problems and break them down into simple observations that can be analyzed.  “A turnaround requires abandoning whatever does not perform and doing more of what does perform”. Post-Capitalist Society

His message to us is to improve effectiveness by concentrating more on what works.  Can’t get much simpler than that.

Encourage excellence by helping others focus on improving their strengths.

Click the link below to be redirected to a video segment of an interview with Drucker on his philosophies:

Liberal Arts is Not Dead

Pierre de FermatKennesaw- Who says that Liberal Arts is dead?  One day in 1637, a lawyer and amateur mathematician named Pierre de Fermat scribbled a curious note in his journal: “The equation xn+ yn = zn, where x, y, and z are positive integers, has no solution if n is greater than 2… I have discovered a most remarkable proof, but this margin is too narrow to contain it.”

In his spare time, Fermat studied languages, classical literature and natural science.  He also discovered the fundamental principle of analytic geometry. His methods for finding tangents to curves and their maximum and minimum points led him to be regarded as the inventor of the differential calculus. Through his correspondence with Blaise Pascal he was a co-founder of the theory of probability.

It took mankind over 350 years to prove Fermat’s last theorem.

Spend time today encouraging excellence with someone you come in contact. You may be encouraging the next Pierre de Fermat of our generation.
