Leadership Training: Six Tips for Success

Leadership Training: Six Tips for Success

Six Tips for Success

There is a set of six principles that you must master if you want to achieve success.

They are as follows. Goals; plans; action; feedback; change; persistence.

1. Goals.

Set a goal and focus on it for a long time: long enough for you to achieve it.

2. Plans.

Figure out practical plans that are capable of taking you in the direction of your goals.

3. Action.

Make yourself take immediate and consistent action;implement the plans you have made.

4. Feedback.

The willingness to observe carefully where your plans are NOT working.

5. Change.

Be willing to adapt, and modify your plans, according the negative feedback your recent actions have generated.

6. Persistence.

The ability to repeat the process of writing plans, taking action, observing their results, and changing the plan, whenever the results are negative. This process is summed up in the word, PERSISTENCE.

It seems so simple; and it is simple. But it is not easy.

Please answer the following questions honestly:

Question 1:

  • Do you have a list of long range, ambitious, worthwhile goals at which to aim?
  • Or are you living your life with no big ambition, and just hoping that your luck, or the government, will change?

Question 2.

  • Do you have detailed written plans that are capable of taking you towards your goals?
  • Or not?

Question 3.

  • Are you taking consistent action to achieve a long range, ambitious, and worthwhile goal?
  • Or are you spending all your free time entertaining yourself?

Question 4.

Are you paying attention to the results you have been creating recently? In the last 6 months, would you say you have made good progress? Or have you remained static? Or perhaps even gone backwards?

Question 5.

Are you willing to admit when you are wrong? Meaning; do you notice when your recent actions have failed to produce the progress you were hoping for? Or do you tend to defend your errors, and become annoyed if anyone dares to suggests your recent actions are NOT cutting much ice?

Question 6.

How persistent are you? Are you willing to set goals; make and remake plans; take massive action; observe the results, and make the necessary adaptive changes?

Or do you tend to give up too soon, at the first, second or third rejection?

If you do give-up too soon, after three or four setbacks, then you may be cheating yourself out of the BIG prizes that are awarded to those people who never give up.

Think it over.

Then pass these same questions to a friend or partner.
