As leaders, we know that success is a habit. We build success from a set of behaviors that we repeat over and over again until it becomes our second nature. But how do we navigate to the next level when we feel stuck?
In my career as a successful coach, I have worked with incredible clients at various levels of their professional and business career. The constant trend among all those who felt stuck for a while was that they had a hard time seeing themselves as successful.
Not seeing yourself as a successful leader, even if you do not feel successful, greatly hinders your progress to reach the next level of success. You underestimate your potential. You end up giving up things soon. He stays a little longer. This has a direct impact on the professionalism of your profession, your influence, and of course, on financial success.
Seeing yourself as a successful leader, and feeling successful, is the key to building greater success. It is a lasting foundation for your growth and incredible results. That’s what makes your impossible goals come true.
Follow this five-step document on how to feel successful so that you can move on to your next level of success quickly.
- Put your privacy first
Start at the basic level. How is your life? Does your private life sit in the back seat because of your work? Most leaders believe that in order to achieve the next level of success in their careers, their personal lives must be sacrificed. But the fact is, personal health is the key to your professional success.
When you are surrounded by people who do not know you, or if you do not have the right support system, you begin to see yourself as a victim. You stop feeling like you can achieve anything you want. You start to see yourself as a different person. You start to feel tired of sticking with that unhealthy relationship that takes a lot of energy and effort.
Good personal health and healthy, supportive relationships, you pass you on to get the best results. So start exploring your personal life. Do the people around you believe in you? Are the people around you happy with your success? Do things in your life give you the strength and motivation to keep moving forward? Your happiness in your private life will affect the way you do your work. So take full advantage of it!
- Celebrate the smallest victory, and tell people about it
Our thoughts influence our decisions. These decisions lead to success. It is a matter of prophecy that we are fulfilling. Unfortunately, many leaders have a hard time celebrating their victory. Many take it for granted that it is just an outbreak. Some even feel angry even after a big win. This has a direct impact on their performance, team management, and financial outcomes.
That is why the celebration you have achieved is so important. No matter where you are, putting your first customer in your business or getting your dream job, you should celebrate every step of the way. There are no drums. Everything happens for a reason. Success is always repetitive. Make sure you see them all, talk about them with the right people, reinforce the feeling that you are on the right track, and that you are always the lucky one on their side.
Winning very little won the best. This is from finally finding your favorite hairdresser, having a good connection to a social event, finding your place, placing your first clients, having good fun with your loved ones… Celebrations are the key to feeling successful. So keep on rejoicing.
“Successful people are energetic. The more successful they are, the more they want to succeed, and the more they find a way to succeed. Similarly, when someone fails to do so, the tendency is to fall into a pattern of prediction. ”- Tony Robbins
- Keep track of what you do and what you accomplish
Feeling successful is all about positive reinforcement. Keeping a diary of your activities and accomplishments is a great way to build this positive reinforcement. The journal gives you an opportunity to reflect on the day’s events, accomplishments, and lessons learned. Writing can be an important tool in many areas of your life – not just personal development.
Creating a book log should not be complicated. You can start by asking simple questions. Have you ever done something that made you feel successful and proud of yourself? What are the highlights of the day? What steps have you taken to achieve your goal today?
Have a special note of all the ways you do something well, how you celebrate it, and write it down in this special issue will help you pick me up on those bad days you may be facing, help you get in good shape and, faster. Keep writing down anything you know that people around you will want to celebrate with you. Keep tightening!
- Treat failure as a series of tests
Our brains have not changed much. However, we must learn to roam the modern world with this ancient brain. It makes sense from the days of cavemen where realizing the danger or problem would cost our species! Our brains are old, and they are designed to see problems more than good. So it makes sense why our brain cannot deal with failure properly.
But the fact is that the failure is huge! You tried something and got a response, and now you can take action based on that data. Take it from Bob Ross: “We don’t make mistakes. We have just happy dangers. ”Each effort brings you closer to that goal! So it fails quickly, it fails to move forward, and you laugh at it with your loved ones!
So think of all the failures as trying. When you try something else, you get better at it. The more you practice, the more you learn, the better. There is no real failure. No errors. Every failure simply means getting closer to where you want to go the fastest.
- Offer commendation and acceptance
Leaders are often harsh and critical of themselves. It is not easy to commend ourselves. But complimenting is the best way to boost our self-confidence and continue positive reinforcement. And it’s a great way to keep yourself motivated.
So how do we give commendation without feeling overwhelmed? Be your best cheerleader! If you receive a recommendation, it will be written or oral. But from you personally, just write it down! Bombard yourself recommendations. Every time you “failed,” every time you recovered, every time you won, no matter how small. You’re awesome, that’s why you’re on your way to, and worthy of laughter, all that your heart desires.
Follow these 5 steps, feel successful, and see for yourself how quickly your world changes!
