Seven Steps to Help You Succeed

Winning is a state of mind. It is a habit that must be cultivated by practice and discipline with the attitude that you never give up or give in. Challenges and obstacles come at us with certainty, it can not be avoided, however, how we face and overcome them separates the winners from the mediocre.

Winners create an image inside their minds that keeps them focused and allows them to break through barriers that would otherwise seem impossible. A winner digs deep within and sorts out the negative words and thoughts that have kept her from achieving what she knows she can accomplish and be.

Here are 7 Simple Steps to help you succeed at winning your goal;

1. Have a purpose; what is it that you want to be a winner at? Make sure your reasons are realistic, not to prove something to someone else, it must be because you want it with passion and are driven to go for it!

2. Write it down; your dream, purpose, goal, whatever you want to call it becomes more real to you when you see it in front of you. Written on a piece of paper that you can place somewhere where you see it constantly and reminds you to keep pressing forward when things get tough.

3. Make a plan; how are you going to accomplish your vision? What are the steps or disciplines that are needed to get to the goal you are pursuing? Break them down into daily, weekly,or monthly goals. Make is simple to implement and give yourself realistic time lines.

4. Get support from someone you can trust. Find a mentor, a professional person, someone who will encourage and keep you accountable and on track. Don't share with people you know will only want to discourage you, find those who will cheer you on!

5. Project your goal as already accomplished. Think about the fact that you are a winning woman, you have what it takes to do anything you want to do, and be whatever you want to be. You are winning each day you take a step that brings you closer to the finish line of your goal. Self talk is good sometimes speaking it out loud so you can hear what you are thinking can help as well. Keep seeing the goal as yours and attainable by making sure you have realistic goals and measures you know you can get to. Break it up into achievable milestones that work with your schedule and lifestyle.

6. Review and adjust. Sometimes a little adjustment is all you need to get you to the next part or help you get to your goal quicker and finish stronger. It is always wise to re-examine your goal, and make sure you are able to continue based on what is going on in your life. Emergencies, illness, and other setbacks can be discouraging, however, it doesn't mean you stop, you just readjust and keep going.

7. Reward or treat yourself. Each time you meet a milestone or accomplish another step toward your goal, celebrate by treating yourself to a small something that makes you feel good. Accept compliments graciously and appreciate the investment others have made in helping you achieve your goals.

Winning is part dreaming, part planning, part doing. It takes all three parts to be the winner you already are. Make it happen and be that Winning Woman!

I really enjoyed reading this blog. It is amazing how we, as human beings are aware of principles such as those that are mentioned, yet we allow them to slip away from our daily thoughts. Focusing the heart of the mind first is key to seeing the vision and running after it.
