Invest in Your Success!

I could write a lot on this topic just because there are so many variations that you can discuss. Many of you are probably wondering what exactly do I mean “Invest in Your Success”, how much money will that cost me? There are many components that success is born from but money is actually a very small one. Most people strive in their life to achieve something, to be somebody, to make a difference. So what do I mean invest in your success?

Some Components to Success
1. Must have a vision!
~A clear, detailed blueprint of where you want to be.
2. Believe in yourself.
~Do you believe that you are worthy of success.
3. Time (Make a Schedule)
~You must put time into your vision and not just 5 minutes. I am talking about hours and hours.
4. Effort
~You must put ACTION in your vision! Even when you do not feel like doing anything. This is a big one for me. It is a constant reminder!
5. Never give up!
~Don’t give up on yourself! It will take time…years!!! Don’t listen to negative feedback from friends or family, they will only bring you down!

Probably one of the biggest ones……
~What is your attitude on a daily basis? Do you constantly doubt yourself? Are you always in a bad mood?

“Whether you are headed for success or failure, your attitude will always get you there.” ~ Wes Beavis

Not one thing makes you successful, there are many different actions that co inside with one another that equal success. I do not feel that I am successful yet but I will be. I read a lot and I am more aware of my bad habits than I was 3 years ago. These 6 components I have listed here are just some of the key factors, there are many more like, no excuses, make a decision to be successful, being a team player etc. The best way to learn and understand them all is to read and become a student again!
It is so important to dream and dream big! This is the land of opportunity and it is still that way. I think people have become comfortable in the idea that living paycheck to paycheck is just the way it is suppose to be. I am here to tell you, that it doesn’t have to be that way. Success is a choice, a decision, not just something we use to describe “lucky” people. If you want to change the way you live and the way your future generations live then make a decision, break the mold and go for it!

Sometimes I question why people have children or if they think it would have been different. It is amazing to me how some parents seem not to care where their kids are or what they are doing. The world was so different 20 years ago.
Recently, I was at Petco doing kitten adoptions and there was this 10 year old boy who was just hanging around the cats and asking question after question. He was adorable. We asked him, “Where are your parents?” he replied, “At Costco shopping. They gave me permission to walk over here.” So at this particular shopping center Costco sits adjacent to Petco and there is about a mile of parking lot in between the stores. Not to mention the dangers of being hit by a car but he could have been easily taken. One of the other ladies asked him, “What would happen if you were kidnapped?” he replied, “Oh I have been in karate for 5 years, that won’t happen.” We all were shocked that came out of his mouth. Do some parents think that bad things could never happen? Or how about just trying to prevent them?
Another form of parenting I do not quite understand is selfishness and being manipulative towards your children. There is this girl that was quite close with our family and her parents absolutely made us scratch our heads. She is 24 years old now with a 6 week old baby and she cannot make a decision on her own if her life depended on it. Her parents have raised her to believe that what they say is 150% correct. They have manipulated her into believing that giving them all of her money is the “right” thing to do. Her parents have told her all of her life that there is something wrong with her which had left her with no self-confidence therefore she lets her friends brainwash her into changing herself to accommodate others.
Do parents realize that what they instill their children with; is the foundation of what they will become as an adult? Parents are the only role model that a child has. As much as you require obedience from them, they require approval from you.
