Designing a Successful Day

All success requires you to make a decision to succeed. Here are five thoughts to consider:

  1. Success is more difficult to live with than failure. You must know why you want to succeed so that it has purpose. Otherwise it is a non-fulfilling experience.
  2. Success in any endeavor requires you to pay the price. Short-cuts never win you the world-championship.
  3. Success is not a one-time thing, it’s an all-the-time thing. You never play to lose but every loss teaches you how to play to win.
  4. Success is a habit–so is failure.
  5. Success is on the inside first before it ever translates to the outside. Feel good about you or you’ll never be able to compete.

The quality of your life is in direct proportion to your commitment to excellence.

Based on the above, what’s your dream day? If your "success canvas" was without the blight of your current challenges, how would you paint it? How would you answer the following questions:

  • What kind of work would you do?
  • How would you feel?
  • How many hours would you work?
  • What time would you start?
  • What time would you end?
  • How much money would you earn?
  • How much money would you save?
  • What memories would you create?
  • What one-on-one experiences would you have with your spouse?
  • How about with your kids?
  • How would your attitude be?
  • What would be the things you would not do?
  • How much more time would that give you?
  • How peacefully would you sleep?
  • How much inner peace would you have?

These are important questions, the kind of questions that determine your destiny. Highly successful people design their perfect days and they strive to adhere to that agenda. Use the above questions to help you determine if your choices are adding to or taking away from your success.
