Four Successful Keys to Generate New Success

What does success look like for you?

  • What does your professional success look like?
  • What does your personal success look like?

Every day leaders must wake up with a clear picture of what success looks like. Once it is defined, leaders can generate that success through tapping into four keys:

1. Emotion and Passion
I’ve never observed a successful leader without passion for success—  a controlled emotion that fuels their motivation.

My championship football coach, Don Matthews, use to say, “The team that plays with emotion wins.”  Although that may not always be true, show me a passionate leader who has emotion for what they do daily and I’ll show you a winner!

2. Timeless Principles
What are your five time-tested timeless principles for success? I’ll share mine:

  • Integrity and trust
  • Personal drive
  • Capital “A” attitude
  • Give more than expected
  • Excellence

3. Daily Disciplines
Successful people are brilliant in the basics. They show up with uncompromised disciplines. They do what unsuccessful people do only now and then. They implement daily practices that seem simple and basic but add up over time—  things like:

  • Cheerfulness
  • Acting on the right priorities
  • Healthy food choices
  • Disciplined schedule of purpose
  • Keeping of commitments
  • Managing finances
  • Doing small details
  • Keeping their word

4. Teaming Up
The best leaders build great teams. Successful leaders build teams that complement their strengths and shore up their weaknesses. They don’t burn-out because they are overwhelmed, they take time and invest in their team members to communicate what success looks like and celebrate success milestones.

I encourage you to tap into your passion, lock on to your timeless principles, implement daily disciples, and team up!

Here is to your success!
