Success comes to those that follow a process

April 22, 2015

I believe that if you follow a set process the chances of success are greater.  I have some rules to success and since I started following them good things have happened.

My 11 Key Rules to Success™ are 11 key traits which if implemented consistently they will have a profound effect on your life, both business and personal.

Rule 1 – Persistence

You must never give in and always keep trying. In predicting success, enthusiasm and passion count much more than an extra piece of ability. There are so many people out there with so much ability but they waste it. How many people do we know that are talented but did not achieve their potential?

Rule 2 – Set a Personal Plan

Set goals, targets dreams and aspirations and document them. Ensure you can measure your progress. Measuring progress in anything is critical.

Grab a piece of paper and jot down answers to these 3 questions and once completed put the paper somewhere that you can see it. This will then act as a guide towards your goals.

  1. What are the greatest goals that you want to achieve?
  2. What are the things you need to do this year in order to reach your life goals?
  3. What do you need to focus on today to achieve your life goals?

It is very simple, the key to making the system work is discipline.

Rule 3 – Enjoy Life

Commit to a work life balance and take the time to enjoy what you like doing the most. Make sure that you have fun both at work and in your private life. People that have fun are more successful. You should also take holidays and you will be be amazed at how much you will learn on holidays as well.

Rule 4 – Learning

Constant improvement is very important. Life is one big  journey and we should attempt to grow and develop at all times. One of the best ways to learn is to learn from people’s experiences and to work as a team in sharing ideas. You should ask us about forming High Performance Mastermind Groups. That is a system where as a group we can meet monthly and just brainstorm ideas, raise issues you are facing, wins and losses etc and we can as a group assist each other to move our businesses and lives forward. Per statistics we retain 95% of what we share, so that type of forum is truly powerful.

Rule 5 – Change is the Only Constant

We must understand that change is always occurring and we should embrace it. If we learn to change we will have much better results in everything that we do.

The key is not to resist change and to move outside our comfort zones.

Rule 6 – Exercise your Mind and your Body

It has been proven that daily exercise of your mind and your body can have dramatic results. So we should always try to be active. Read books, be receptive to ideas and thoughts, exercise your body.

Any idea, plan, or purpose may be placed in the mind through repetition of thought.

Rule 7 – Always have an Open Mind

You should look at various options and avenues for answers and you must think laterally to achieve things. You should always challenge yourself to do better and do not accept the status quo. Just because something has been done a certain way for 20 years does not mean it is still the best way.

We must understand that wanting a different outcome will not occur unless you do things differently.

Rule 8 – Take Advice 

Always take advice from people that you can learn from, as they say birds of a feather flock together. No one individual has all of the answers and all successful people have had a group of people around them. That is why in rule 4 I have mentioned the high performance mastermind group. That is a great way to have people around you that have plenty of experience in business and we can all learn from each other.

Rule 9 – Picture Success

It is really important that you formulate and stamp indelibly in your mind a mental picture of yourself succeeding and you must hold this picture tenaciously. Many people have quit just before they were about to succeed. So never quit and always push forward your mind will seek to develop the picture that you have created. As Napoleon Hill said:

“Success comes to those who become SUCCEESS CONSCIOUS


Failure comes to those who indifferently allow themselves to become


Rule 10 – Work Hard and Respect Others

You reap what you sow. The important thing is that you keep focussed no matter how good things are going. There are peaks (good times) and valleys (bad times) in life and if we keep focussed we will maintain the peaks longer and get out of the valleys quicker.

Some tips:

  • If you like others they will like you,
  • If you treat others with respect they will treat you with respect,
  • If you speak sincerely and have empathy for others so will they with you,
  • If you work hard you will succeed and progress.

With hard work momentum will come. It is all about momentum and the benefits that come from that once you have things moving forward. As Gary Player says: “The harder I work, the luckier I get.”

Rule 11 – Help others do the above as well

If you help others they will inturn help you achieve your outcomes. A very wise man once said:

What your Thoughts they become your Words, watch your Words they become your Actions, watch your Actions they become your Habits and watch your Habits they become your Destiny.

It is all about habits becoming destiny. It is up to all of us to make 2012 /2013 and the years ahead what we want them to be. So if you like you can follow the 11 Key Rules to Your Success™, they do work. Also, please do not hesitate to contact us should you want help with any of the above.
