Do you have a strong desire to become more successful? Being successful can mean different things for different folks but the obstacles to get there seem to be similar across the board. These seven gems can help you to overcome any obstacles to your success regardless of your goals or challenges. As you read through you will be reminded of your own personal habits, patterns and ways of being.

  1. Be determined.

    Make a decision to go all the way to the top. If
    you are not sure where the top is, imagine where
    you want to go and envision a place even beyond
    there. This new place may feel less comfortable
    and maybe a bit scary. Most people stay where it
    feels safe., and yet, real success requires
    determination not safety. Go past that familiar
    place and reach for what you really want. We are
    creatures of habit and without determination we
    will stay where we have always been. Nothing is
    wrong with that, but know that you are making a
    choice. It might be scary and it might push you
    to learn new skills and systems but if you are
    determined you will go for it.

  2. Recognize what is holding you back.

    Most people know what it is that is holding them
    back, and if they stop and quiet their minds
    enough to listen, they will hear, but sometimes,
    someone else's objectivity will see easier than
    you can see yourself. It could be a skill you
    need to learn, a quality you need to develop, or
    an action you need to take. Find out what it and
    acknowledge and name it. Once something is named
    it is the first step to gaining power over it.

  3. Surround yourself with positive people.

    Jim Rohn says. "You are a culmination of the 5
    people you spend the most time with." Would you
    rather feel inspired by the people you hang out
    with or do you like hearing people complain or
    be negative. We are a culture of complainers and
    blamers. If you hang out with negative people
    then it will effect your own state of mind.
    Negativity will trigger your own fear and make
    you feel either frozen or stuck. Positive energy
    is contagious and will make you feel joyful and
    happy. Which do you choose? Do you complain
    when things don't go right or do you look for
    solutions? Be a positive person yourself and
    your positive state of mind will spread to
    everyone you touch.

  4. Be healthy.

    That old saying, "If you don't have your health,
    you don't have anything." is true. Healthy diet,
    eliminating addictions, and exercising will keep
    you vitalized, balanced, and stress free. Your
    energy will be amazing and your productivity
    will grow. Eat organic food, drink lots of water,
    breath fresh air, swim, walk, ride your bike and
    you will notice your creativity increase and your
    energy for running your business will multiply.

  5. Be healthy.

    That old saying, "If you don't have your health,
    you don't have anything." is true. Healthy diet,
    eliminating addictions, and exercising will keep
    you vitalized, balanced, and stress free. Your
    energy will be amazing and your productivity
    will grow. Eat organic food, drink lots of water,
    breath fresh air, swim, walk, ride your bike and
    you will notice your creativity increase and your
    energy for running your business will multiply.

  6. Create an uncluttered and attractive work
    space.

    Have a look at your office or work area. Does it
    feel good or do you feel distracted when you are
    in this space? Like cooking in a messy
    kitchen; you can do it but very inefficiently,
    and the quality of the food that is produced
    will be less vibrant. Know what your style is.
    Some people need to have everything neat and put
    away and others work better with papers spread
    out. If you are the spread out type then make
    sure you have big desk space. While sitting at
    your desk, notice what is on the wall directly in
    front of you. This is where your eyes will wander
    throughout the day. Put an inspiring painting or
    photograph in that space. It will help keep you
    centered and will support your creativity.

  7. Keep your commitments to people.

    Relationships are the cornerstone of running a
    business. Business is all about relationships.
    Treat your staff the way you would want to be
    treated. Take time to have lunch with peers.
    Initiate. Call people back, say thank-you, give
    appreciation, and offer help. It will come back
    to you multiplied.
