The Success Code

I will be now straightforward and tell you what is the code. The code for success is: “Own Your Life!” Own your life!!!

You see, nobody is gonna land on your property, and offer you help, see you struggling and feel sorry for you. They are living their lives, as best as they can. Know that you, and only you, have that magic stick in your hands and make things happen, but only, and if you believe in yourself. Believe in yourself! Believing in yourself will automatically get you doing the things towards success, by not believing in yourself, you are going to just dabble. Is that right or right?

Your habits and behaviors determines whether you are going to succeed in life and feel fulfilled, or living mediocre life and feel unhappy. You body posture, handshake, your voice, everything. Look around a little bit, and observe people, I believe that you could tell something about them just by observing them.

Focus on Listening

REALLY LISTEN

Really listen what they have to say. Just by listening people you are building trust. They”ve been heard. It is great feeling right? You would love as well if something is on your mind, go to someone and just talk, share your story being understood.

People put all kinds of barriers if they feel they are being sold to. Many professionals are developing a completely different approach to selling – sometimes described as a feminine approach – more listening, less broadcasting. I encourage people to learn to talk about what they”ve done with confidence but also with dignity. The difference is tremendous.

EYE CONTACT

Try different approaches when somebody shares a story with you. There is this one. Next time when they are going to talk with you, look at them deeply in their eyes, and really listen what they have to say, feel their feelings, concerns, or happy moments. Completely and totally immerse yourself to their story. At times things only happen when you look someone in the eye.

Think of friends or colleagues who have made interesting breakthroughs in the past year or two – exciting new clients, brilliant contacts, an engaging new job or work project. Ask them how the opportunity happened. Some will tell you that opportunities fell into their lap, or they were in the right place at the right time. You may feel your friends have talent or luck on their side, but other factors are also at play. Consciously or not, your friends did something different to move luck in their direction. They spent less time staring at screens, and more time in face to face conversations.

The best way to build trust is to sit down with someone and share time, small talk, refreshments, perhaps a meal.

Some of the most interesting emails begin “I read this and I thought of you…”

One of the best ways to be remembered is to ask for help.

SHOWING BEATS TELLING

There”s a huge difference someone telling you “I love you!” not doing anything about that, and saying “I love you!” and showing you how much you mean to them.

There”s a sound rule about talking about yourself: “show, don”t tell”, and it applies here. It”s better to give an example than state a fact. Stories are remembered longer than information, and good stories even longer. This is true for describing skills, but even more for personal values. Values are revealed by what you do, not how you describe yourself. Talk about what you”ve actually done rather than spouting abstract values

If I ask you now what are your dreams and desires, you might be telling me all of them, but are you doing something about that. If you don”t, do small steps today towards your dreams and desires, your future self will thank you for. Only that will hold you accountable, not just talking about your dreams.

Success Code

What is your success code? What do you think is crucial to feel and be successful? I wanna hear from you now.

I think everything counts., and when I mean everything, I really mean everything. Your environment, what you eat, where you go, who are your friends, what you do when nobody is watching you, what do you do in your spare time, how you take care about yourself, how you walk, how you talk, what you read, what you consume… Everything!

I am reading a lot lately. All the great achievers recommends to read a lot. I took their advice. I would rather stay at home and read a book, brainstorm ideas, than go with someone not worth my time. I guess I will never stop learning. I commit myself to that. This time I read a book called like this title “The Success Code” that I liked it so much.

Great thing that you can do while reading a book is being totally immersed in what you read, highlight the sentences that are interesting to you and taking notes.

More about how to effectively read a book I made in this video tutorial. Enjoy watching!
