Did you know the the fastest way to success is to replace bad habits with good habits?
Success requires good habits, and those good habits are only possible with persistent consistency.
What are you doing today to form and master those good habits?
Are you avoiding stinkin' thinkin'?
Remember the old acronym GIGO, Garbage In Garbage Out. You simply cannot have a happy life, be productive at work, and produce good results if you are letting all kinds of garbage, negativity, into your head.
Consider where the input is coming from and how to, quite literally, stand guard at the door of your mind.
Start with a goal.
What do you want to accomplish in the next 30 days, year, etc.? Is it exercising, reading, self-development, etc.? Now, write down the goal in detail.
Then ask yourself these questions:
- What does success look like?
- What do I need to reach True Performance?
BAAM stands for Block And A Mailbox. Dad made this concept famous in the book See You at the Top. Dad had a weight-loss goal, and he decided he was going to start jogging to help lose the weight. Problem was, he was not in good shape.
After getting checked out by a doctor he started his plan. The first day he jogged, he ran a block. The second day he jogged, he ran a block and a mailbox. The third day he jogged a block and two mailboxes. You get the picture – every day he added a little bit more distance.
Once you get on a roll, it's easier to keep on rolling. Every day review your goal and record what you did to move towards it the previous day. Each day do a little bit more — add time or intensity or knowledge.
You can do it.
You are Born To Win, so go ahead and Live To Win!
