Be the most positive, enthusiastic person you know
Like attracts like. If you commit to being positive and enthusiastic you will naturally and effortlessly attract positive and enthusiastic friends, clients, partners, lovers, customers. Not only that; because of your positive attitude, you will notice opportunities that more pessimistic people look over.
Do your best at EVERYTHING you do
The way you do anything, is the way you do everything. Giving your 100% applies to ALL areas of your life. That means, for example, when you clean that cat box do it with intention, joy, efficiency and thoroughness. When you dedicate yourself do doing your very best in every moment, your life will radiate that perfection!
Commit yourself to constant improvement
What is the common denominator in all of the areas of your life where you want to see success? You are! All of the power lies within you! Therefore, constant improvement assures that you are always at your very best. When you make yourself a priority in your life, you are able to remain full, balanced, clear of mind, open to your intuition, and decisive. All of these traits allow you to be successful in whatever endeavor you choose.
Nothing can be created in the physical world without first believing that it's possible in the mental/spiritual world. If you are desiring success, whether it's a successful marriage, business or manifestation of your unique goals, you first must really believe that it is possible, that you deserve it, and that it WILL happen (it's just a matter of when). Then you can just rest it faith, leap courageously, and trust that the Universe has got your back.
Forgive (be in the now)
Past blame and hate to yourself or others only drags you down. Let it go, move into the present moment, and accept yourself (and others) as whole, perfect & complete just the way they are (warts and all). If there is trauma that you are having trouble forgiving, seek the support you need to recover, so that you can be fully present in your life. The big "T" truth is that everyone is doing the best with the tools they have, and most hurts are innocent. Note: this does not mean to forget or to remove appropriate boundaries in your life. Accepting someone doesn't mean being a doormat for them.
Take 100% Responsibility
Everything about you is a result of your doing or not doing... Your income. Debt. Relationships. Health. Fitness level. Attitudes and behaviors.
I've often said that you are either creating or allowing everything that is happening in your life.
I think everyone knows this in their hearts, but often times people convince themselves into thinking that external factors are the source of their failure, disappointment, and unhappiness.
External factors do not determine how you live. YOU are in complete control of the quality of your life, by either creating or allowing the circumstances you experience.
Each person has a natural way of being with unique skills and gifts. Until you embrace who you are, you will not find true success and happiness. If your a loud-mouth show-off masquerading as a reserved professional then you haven't yet come into alignment with your authentic self. Discover who your authentic self is, disregard limiting beliefs about who you "should" be, and let your authentic self soar.
"Be yourself, everyone else is already taken"
Alone, a bird can fly about 60 miles per day. When they get the support of other birds (flying in a V formation) they can fly over 300 miles per day. In the same why, those who you surround yourself with greatly effect your ability to succeed. If you are seeking success, surround yourself with people who support you in your goals, who celebrate who you are, and who add value to your existence.
Be bold and courageous
Take Risks. Be okay with failure. Say YES to life. Feel fear, and do it anyways. Wild beyond-your-dreams success lies outside your comfort zone. In order to get outside your comfort zone, you have to move through fear. Make a commitment to following the action steps towards your dream or goal, and let nothing stop you.
If you can't see the target, you aren't likely to hit it. The more clarity you have around what, the more you will be able to attract opportunity and discover open doors. Knowing yourself, your unique needs and desires, knowing what you want so clearly that you can feel, hear and taste it is a sure-fire way to create success in your life.
