If you could relive yesterday, how would you live it? What will you do? What will you avoid?
Most of us will try to do more and be better if we could relive yesterday. We desire to accomplish more. Like we saw last month, you can be more productive by creating good habits and rejecting bad ones. But then, with all the right intentions, why do we keep practicing bad habits? What’s the bottleneck in achieving what we desire?
The problem is that we do not do what we said we would do. You can become what you want, if you do what you said you would do. We must continually review ourselves and stay in action. Keep practicing the good habits and keep rejecting the bad ones. This persistence will pay off!
But there is another fundamental question we got to ask ourselves. The question is: “Do I want to be great? Really?” Read further if your answer is “Yes!”
There is some good news! You can become great. All great people started like you and me. They had some traits that made them great.
Richard St. John, a millionaire marketer was puzzled when a small girl asked him, “What really leads to success?” Even though he achieved success, he couldn’t tell her how he did it. To answer her question he spent 10 years interviewing over 500 successful people, including Martha Stewart, Richard Branson, Russell Crowe, and the Google founders. After analyzing all the data, Richard discovered the 8-Traits that lead to great success. What he found surprised me with its simplicity! And I had no doubt that following those 8 traits will make anyone successful.
I want to share those 8 traits to become great with you. The picture below depicts the 8 traits. Clicking on the picture will take you to a video Richard made to explain the concepts. The video is wonderful and I strongly recommend watching it, and sharing it with everyone on your team.
