My Top 7 Secrets to Success

Oftentimes we see the external successes of others but we have no idea what are the internal workings that got them there. Yes, what you see outwardly, is usually done by lots of inner work and a constant shifting of the mind. Iโ€™ve come to realize that success is a mindset!  

So I wanted to share with you what I think are some of the top โ€œinternal mechanismsโ€ that have allowed me to be successful personally and professionally. Let me know in the comments which one resonated with you and which ideas we both have in common.

๐Ÿ. ๐…๐ข๐ ๐ฎ๐ซ๐ž ๐Ž๐ฎ๐ญ ๐–๐ก๐จ ๐˜๐จ๐ฎ ๐€๐ซ๐ž – Always be on the quest of self-discovery, understanding WHO you are, and the WHY behind WHAT you do helps you. For when you understand what drives and motivates you you become unstoppable. And you are not limited to the projections and the limitations others may try to impose on you.

๐Ÿ. ๐๐ž๐ฏ๐ž๐ซ ๐’๐ญ๐จ๐ฉ ๐‹๐ž๐š๐ซ๐ง๐ข๐ง๐  – Learning is sexy, it opens up your mind, challenges your beliefs, sparks creativity and innovation and it is one the easiest ways to add value professionally. Learn but Execute!

๐Ÿ‘. ๐€๐ฆ๐ฉ๐ฅ๐ข๐Ÿ๐ฒ ๐˜๐จ๐ฎ๐ซ ๐’๐ญ๐ซ๐ž๐ง๐ ๐ญ๐ก๐ฌ – So often we dwell on our weaknesses or what I call our areas of opportunity and yes thatโ€™s okay. But Amplify and find ways to โ€œBig Upโ€ what is working for you, those natural God-given gifts and abilities.

๐Ÿ’. ๐‚๐จ๐ฆ๐ฉ๐ž๐ญ๐ž ๐–๐ข๐ญ๐ก ๐˜๐จ๐ฎ๐ซ๐ฌ๐ž๐ฅ๐Ÿ – Itโ€™s about You vs You. I focus on how I can be better, not better than anyone in particular but better than the woman I was the day before. Itโ€™s not about perfection. But itโ€™s about knowing who I am now and the woman I want to become and going after that with everything Iโ€™ve got.

๐Ÿ“. ๐๐ซ๐š๐œ๐ญ๐ข๐œ๐ž ๐Š๐ข๐ง๐๐ง๐ž๐ฌ๐ฌ – It is the right thing to do! As well as consider this, your act of kindness may be the one good thing that person encountered on that particular day. Be Kind Always!

๐Ÿ”. ๐‘๐ž๐Ÿ๐ฅ๐ž๐œ๐ญ๐ข๐จ๐ง ๐†๐จ๐ž๐ฌ ๐€๐ฅ๐จ๐ง๐  ๐–๐š๐ฒ- Reflection is one of the tools I use to facilitate my growth. Reflection with the intention of doing better the next time around rather than beating up yourself is a great way to grow and continuously improve.

๐Ÿ•. ๐‚๐ฎ๐ฅ๐ญ๐ข๐ฏ๐š๐ญ๐ž ๐˜๐จ๐ฎ๐ซ ๐’๐ฉ๐ข๐ซ๐ข๐ญ๐ฎ๐š๐ฅ ๐‹๐ข๐Ÿ๐ž – Iโ€™m not here to preach or tell you what to do. But I can tell you when I started paying attention to my inner being, my consciousness expanded. I am by no means a saint, but taking the time to cultivate and connect with spirit daily keeps me focused and grounded. In him, I live and move and have my being! (Acts 17:28) What about you?
