Persistence – Why It’s The Key To Success

Posted by on March 31, 2010 with 1 Comments

The ability to persist when failure looks inevitable is a key principle to a successful person. If a person is persistent no matter how large the adversity appears, they will succeed. If you persist, if you continue to charge forward, you will succeed.

Persistence is a skill we can all learn. Your persistence will be tested when you come across failure in life, whether it is in personal life or professional life. We are not delivered into this world in defeat. Failure is not an option if our desire to succeed is strong enough. No matter what happens, we must persist.
There is no substitute for persistence. People who fall into the habit of being persistent to the point of stubbornness may encounter failure but the difference between them and others is that they are able to learn something new with every set back and try again. (more…)

10 Sure-Fire Steps to take the Fear out of Public Speaking

10 Sure-Fire Steps to take the Fear out of Public Speaking

Do you “feel the fear” when asked to do some Public Speaking?

Public Speaking is still one of our greatest fears and it turns grown men and women into nervous wrecks. The mere thought of it turns our tongue to cotton wool, causes our internal plumbing to act up and turns our knees to jelly.

Well, there’s no need for all of this because help is at hand. All you need to remember are your P’s and Q’s. Let’s start with the P’s

Preparation –
When you sit down to write what you’re going to say, bear in mind who you’ll be speaking to. Will they understand what you’re talking about; will they understand the technical stuff and the jargon? If in doubt remember the old saying -“Keep It Simple Stupid”.
Make sure that what you say has a beginning, middle and an end. Think of some anecdotes that help reinforce your story.People think visually so paint verbal pictures for your audience. And always remember, people want to know what’s in it for them – so make sure you tell them! (more…)

Catch the Spirit of the Entrepreneur

Posted by on February 3, 2010 with 0 Comments

Grabbing opportunities with open arms is often easier to talk about than to actually do. Most people find themselves dreaming about being rich but never actually doing anything about it. A combination of procrastination and ‘what if’ syndrome can cripple your creative spirit and might mean your idea will never become a reality.

Socrates said “Action equals knowledge’. He was one of the greatest philosophers of our time. What he meant was that it is through action that we achieve results.

For example, you could think about learning Spanish for months, imagining the holidays you will take and the people you will communicate with. You can dream forever but accomplish nothing unless you actually make the effort to start taking lessons.

Much like the martial arts approach – the idea is to take action immediately and avoid over analyzing the situation. (more…)

The Most Powerful Success Strategy Available

The Most Powerful Success Strategy Available

Have you ever wonder what a mastermind group is and what makes it hold so much appeal for successful people? Dr. Napoleon Hill, most renowned for his classic “Think and Grow Rich”, defines a mastermind group as “an alliance of two or more minds blended in a spirit of perfect harmony and co-operating for the attainment of a definite purpose”.

In Dr Hill’s book, he came to the conclusion that a group of like-minded, achievement-oriented individuals dramatically leveraging upon one another’s strength provided the crucial platform for their collective success. This finding is based upon the research and analysis behind the achievements of no less than 500 of the most successful people in America, in a glittering list that includes Andrew Carnegie, Thomas Edison and Henry Ford.

This is due to the fact that having a mastermind group allows one to tap into the power and wisdom of many, and put in place a support group to assist all in attaining personal and professional goals. This is in stark contrast with the individual who cuts a lonely figure struggling to build and shape an entire business by himself.

How can business Mastermind groups benefit you?

“Me” no longer exists in a Mastermind group, it’s harnessing the power of “We” that is intriguing. Imagine have a Mastermind group of people that are fighting with you in the same trenches or people who have been that, done that! And you given  access by them to this unique brain trust, so as to speak, to generate support and understanding and ultimately solutions from these people, allowing you to dismiss that temporary setback as an insignificant blot on your otherwise impressive CV in future… (more…)
