How to be a Success: Get More Energy

Featured image byMarion Michele.

Energy is a vital element of life. But it’s not something we really learn about or think about on a regular basis. I know for many years, I just woke up tired, knew I was doing some bad things for my body and lived with.

Then I noticed a lot of the people I’ve been studying, big name people like Tony Robbins, always seem full of energy. They always seem positive and going at a high level of intensity. And I know, I for one, can’t match that level of intensity. Not even at my best moments.

So I decided, it’s time to focus on energy and learn how to live in an energy rich state.

How to be a success: Live Happy

Featured image by Preslie Hirsch.

The true measure of success is not in wealth or material possessions. True wealth comes from living in a happy state. We are only truly successful when we spend our time in a place of joy and happiness. And while money helps, it’s true, money can’t buy you love. To have true wealth and feel really successful, you need to spend your time in a positive state.

In Part 1, we looked at how to become unshakeable, in both life and investing. The secret, is to know the facts. If you know the facts and the potential problems, then you can prepare. By being psychologically, physically, mentally and financially prepared, you can face any problem from a position of strength.

In Part 2, we learnt that to be successful in life and investing, you must know the rules and the principles of the game. Our focus was on investing, but it’s the same for life. If you know the core principles of how to win, or you learn them by following successful people, and you apply them, then you will have a great chance of success.

Part 3

In Part 3, we saw that to become truly unshakeable we need to face fear and avoid the common mistakes that are natural for us to make. Again, by being prepared for fear and being aware of these common mistakes, we can be ready to overcome and start winning.

What follows are the lessons I’ve learned about investing from studying Tony Robbin’s book Unshakeable. All credit goes to Tony and I recommend you all go out and get a copy.

How to be a Success: Become Unshakeable (Part 1)

What I Learned from Tony Robbin’s book Unshakeable.

Featured image by Sammie Vasquez

The road to becoming a success is pathed with anxious moments.

To be successful you need to deal with risk. You need to risk your money to investments. Or you have to take chances on business deals. You will also most likely risk standing out from those around you and risk your lifestyle by putting in more and more time into the things that you hope will pay off.

The only way to be ready for the stress that comes with these huge risks and to stay on the right path to success, is to become unshakeable.

The book focuses on stock investing. And as a key part of my plan to achieve success is investing, (and it probably should be for you too), it’s an extremely valuable concept to learn.

However, while the book is mostly concerned with stock market investing, the concept of being unshakeable is applicable to all areas of life.

Being unshakeable basically means having the strength not to give into fear.

It means having the knowledge to act with reason, even when you are dealing with risky situations.

Unshakeable means having the faith and vision to persevere with your goals and not to be stopped by failure of halted by fear.

Read on to see how to become successful by becoming unshakeable.

How to be a Success: Learn from your Failures

Four Things I Learned from my Latest Failure

 

It’s coming on a year since I started on my journey to achieve success. It’s been a big and challenging year. While I’ve made a lot of great progress, I have to admit I’ve had two big failures.

My first failure I’ve written about before. My wife and I first started our journey to achieving financial freedom by investing. At the start we didn’t know what we were doing and it cost us. However, we learned from our mistakes and we learned from the experience. Now we are back in the game and doing much better.

Our second venture towards this goal was to start a part time business; a part time hustle to compliment my job, free up my wife and build a passive revenue stream.

Again, I didn’t really know what I was doing. It fell apart after just 4 months. However, I know this is another important piece in my plan for success. So I’ve decided again to learn from my lessons and get back to it and do it right next time.

This seems to be a trend. The path to success, so far, runs along the lines of: try, fail, learn, try again. But I’m warmed by the lessons of others:

“Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly.” – Robert F. Kennedy

In the search of great success, failures are inevitable. No one can win all the time. The trick is not to never fail, it’s to face failure and overcome.

So here are the major lessons I’ve learned from my latest failure.

How to get Rich: What I learned from Rich Dad

I used to think that the biggest problem with the world was that the rich get richer and the poor stay poor. However, I’m starting to learn that the difference between being rich and poor comes down to a couple of key things. Those things are knowledge and attitude.

With the right knowledge and attitude it’s possible to go from poor to extremely wealthy.

But it takes education. The kind of education we don’t teach kids in school.

The need for financial education sparked my desire to learn these lessons and to teach others.

Here’s what I learned from reading Robert Kiyosaki’s Rich Dad Poor Dad.

How to Achieve Success: Success with Tony’s 4 S’s

Featured image by Alex Read on Unsplash.

As I start this post, I realise that I have never really defined success.

I guess I should have a whole post outlining what success is. However, I feel success is different for everyone.

Success is simply achieving those things that will bring fulfilment to you and your life.

It will be different for everyone, but once you achieve fulfilment in your life, you will feel truly successful.

This definition of success I got from a truly inspirational mentor: Tony Robbins. Today I will cover the 4 things that he taught me that really made a huge difference in my mission for success.
I like to call them Tony’s 4 S’s to success:

– Story
– State
– Strategy
– Standards
