5 Keys to Success by Janet Callaway

This is the first in a series of articles on keys to success. Success is neither a single thing nor talent rather it is a result of many consistent actions. The combination of these disciplines and actions leads to success. Use these keys and walk through the door to your success.

1.  Be Responsible. You are 100% responsible for what happens in your life. You and You alone are responsible for creating the life you want. You and You alone are responsible for the quality of your life. When you accept 100% responsibility and understand what it means in your life, it is liberating. Give up blaming and complaining. Accept Responsibility.

2.  Believe. Believe in Yourself. Believe it's possible.  Oftentimes when you hear someone interviewed after an accomplishment, they say that a quote by Napoleon Hill was instrumental in their success. The quote: “Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve.” We must be able to see ourselves as successful, losing weight, being a better golfer, tennis player or whatever else is our dream, our goal. If we cannot imagine ourselves as having or being something different, we are destined to stay as we are. To build belief in yourself, listen to the CDs, attend the seminars, read the books, take the lessons and talk to supportive people. Borrow their belief in you. Follow the trail of “what if . . .” one step at a time until you learn to Believe in Yourself.

3.  Why. Know your why. Why is it that you want what you want? How will your life be different when you achieve your dream, your goal? Is your why big enough, important enough to you that you will keep going, when the going gets tough?

4.  Focus. Know what you want and what you need to do to get there. Don't get distracted by what you can't control. Ask for help from those who have what you want. Remember, focus on the step you are doing. Know and get ready for the next step. Keep moving. Do it Now.  There is no perfect time.

5.  Visualize Success. Picture your dream, your goal in your mind; think about it often during the day. What will it look like? Make a dream board or vision board and paste pictures of what you want on that board. Look at the board every morning and every evening. Albert Einstein said, “Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life's coming attractions.” What are you imagining? What are you visualizing—your success or your failure? You choose. You take 100% Responsibility.

Change yourself; change your future. You are a Masterpiece.   Are you working each day to improve the Masterpiece of You?
