Habits Of Success – From Good To Great

Habits Of Success - From Good To Great

To be successful in life you are required to attain certain habits.

It is about putting your time and energy into things that really matter. Reflect on what habits you have acquired, it will define where you are at this moment no matter if you look at it through wealth or spirituality.

I am involved in the outdoor industry, which includes many aspects concerning outdoor activities. Through my observation, there are certain habits that industry leaders tend to have. Of course, since I am an ‘outdoors person’, I will draw on examples that are related to outdoor activities and how these habits will bring you success.

Developing positive habits is no easy task. For myself, it is about being convinced that certain habits can bring benefits that really matter in the long-run rather than just temporary pleasures.  

Habit 1: Identifying What Is Necessary

This habit may seem more like a skill, but if you habitually identify what is necessary before putting forth the time and effort to do it, your efforts will be much more effective. If you put effort into doing something it will not make it certain that things will work out.

In many companies, they often use Critical Success Factors as a yardstick to calibrate what goals to achieve. Critical Success Factors are high-level goals that are critical to an organization’s success that must benefit the company as a whole and be directly linked to a business strategy.

Always remember to review your goals and reconsider your strategies because you may be going in the wrong direction! Don’t lose sight of the big picture, if your goal is to successfully harvest a big game, you need to carve out what outcomes you want for your hunt, knowing how far into the forest you need to go and how many hours you need to wait for getting a clear shot! It’s all about what you prioritize!

Habit 2: Being Able To Focus Your Energy

Having enough drive to do the necessary work and keeping your energy focused on a particular task until it is complete is vital. Having the capability to direct all of your energy towards what is most rewarding and necessary at a given moment is needed.

To be able to focus your energies, 2 things must be developed: (1) You are able to rid yourself of distractions (2) You are able to stick to it no matter how difficult it seems.

Naturally, focus will only be present if distractions are removed from you. Some tips to remove distractions include setting a time block on the ‘ONE THING’. Other methods of staying focused include keeping only the things that are related to the task at hand on your desk and scheduling times for distractions.

As for sticking your energy and attention to something until it gets done, you have no choice but to psychologically prepare yourself. You need to make yourself understand that the task at hand is difficult and that focus is required to complete the task efficiently.

Habit 3: Being Confident In What You Do

There are many factors for you to be confident in what you do. If you are involved in competitive archery and you want to successfully shoot that bull’s eye, you need to be confident in your shot. Confidence as a quality should encompass many aspects of how you do things.

Another way you can look at confidence is trust. There are two ways in which trust can work, trust that what you prioritize would work best in helping you reach your goal and that you can trust yourself when you are performing that task at hand.

The second branch of trust is through performance, engage in the task so that you will gain more confidence in yourself and feel that you are becoming more successful.

In archery, champions forget about all of their past mistakes and are capable of doing what is necessary when they are in the tournament. Because they are confident that they can do it, they will eventually be successful in achieving it.

Habit 4: Being Meticulous

You do not need to churn out everything which you are required to do on a piece of paper, but what you do in regards to achieving your goals must be sufficiently clear or structured.

As you are shooting arrows in a tournament, the best performers usually have a practice plan which they stick to. I know that developing a practice schedule to stick with may sound difficult, but this is the only way to achieve success in a given field.

How can you ease the process? You can refer your problems to a coach which is extremely helpful because they can usually pinpoint your flaws and tune your practice regime to achieve the bigger picture.

In archery, you will not leave out tuning your bow because shooting a bow that is not tuned properly can give you a false impression on how effective your body form is. Hence, you need to identify those basics that you have to get right first, such as developing a regime to tune the bow properly first before practicing form and your shots, once you do that then you can move on to developing other important aspects.

Conclusion

I understand that I have not covered everything that is required for you to be successful, but these are the basics. I believe that these are the main principles that you need to follow to achieve success so that you can go from good to great. 

If you can grasp these basics and hold these habits firmly as you pursue your goals, you will succeed.

If you have any ideas or comments you want to make, feel free to do so!

5 Great Pointers On Achieving Success 

Follow Your Passion

Success does not come overnight, it takes a lot of hard work and passion to reach the desired goal and dream. It requires strong dedication, hard work, constant improvement, and sometimes luck. If you are not doing what you love, then you are bound to give up and fail. Only those who have a great passion for something they love, will continue, and strive hard to move on and achieve greatness. It should be something you are willing to sacrifice and dedicate your life to. Every day, every week, and every hour of the day should be dedicated to achieving your goals and dreams. 

Find The Correct Balance

Life is all about finding the right balance. When you find the right balance, only then will you see success around you and within you. Balance your time, spend time with your family and friends. Allocate time to achieving your goals and targets. Look after your health, exercise, and eat well. Life is all about finding a balance. Do not sacrifice one thing for another. It is important to find the right balance in life.  

Establish A Routine

Routines are vital when you are trying to succeed. We are taught from a young age the importance of keeping a good routine in life because without a routine you will be a mess and it will become harder for you to do well in achieving your goals and targets. For example, people who have a job, working for a company, these companies have strict routines in place. The reason for this is so that the company performs well and becomes more successful. Even in our daily lives, without routine we will be all over the place. It is proven that a person who has no routine in life, is a person who is very lazy, a time waster and someone who has no goals and ambition in life. Therefore, we should strive to have good routines in our life, as this will lead us to have a better life. 

Learn From Your Mistakes

Successful people have failed many times. It is inevitable unless you are an extremely lucky person, where everything works out for you. But, when starting off, the first few steps are the hardest. Many people who have achieved great things have failed on many occasions. There are many obstacles in front of you that blocks you from reaching the next stage of success. For example, there are many entrepreneurs who have failed in many businesses, until that one business that has made them successful. Without failures and mistakes, we as humans will never learn, therefore make as many mistakes as you can, as these mistakes will lead you to gain more experience and knowledge in achieving your goals and dreams. 

Find Support And Resources

Find yourself a mentor, you need someone who can point you in the right direction to achieve greatness. With the correct help and support, you can achieve even better than you would do by yourself. If a mentor is not available, try reaching out to others in your field. Find people who have already achieved what you plan to achieve, and try and get as much information from them as possible so that you can reach that level of success one day. Networking is important to become successful and bigger in what you are trying to accomplish. Reaching out to people will allow you to grow further. It will allow you to find out information that you did not even know you needed. Therefore, speaking out and finding the right support and resources will push you to the next level. 

Summary

To summarize, to achieve success, you must be wise and bold. A person who does not try and is lazy in life will go nowhere. You cannot just dream and expect everything to fall perfectly in front of you. You must work hard to get results. We should analyze those who have achieved greatness, by following in their footsteps. Only then can we crawl, walk, and then achieve our own success. Remember, success does not come overnight, it begins with baby steps, and when you are established, you will see the greatest successes.

How I Eat For Free Using Instagram

How I Eat For Free Using Instagram

To start eating for free, you need to have a popular Instagram account that will grab the attention of the restaurants you plan to reach out to.

Having an account that is well put together and the pictures being posted on Instagram posts being of high quality, and building visual interest is very important.

When reaching out to the restaurants, it’s important that you share how your influence and connection with your followers can benefit the restaurant and the food that they are preparing.

A restaurant in Melbourne said that after it was shared on @eating.melbourne the restaurant gained popularity and it’s income greatly increased following the Instagram post.

Reaching out to restaurants is also ideal for eating for free anywhere you want to go. After getting an invitation to eat at restaurants it is extremely important to reach out after and thank the person or people who made it possible.

This is a way to show the people you are dealing with that they know you are serious and will reach out again in the future because of it. Building a relationship after initially getting an invitation to eat at a place is ideal for making yourself known and making more connections with the people and friends that they work with.

Part of the deal you make with the restaurants is that you’ll post jaw-dropping images or videos of their foods, ones that will grab the attention of followers who can potentially visit their restaurant to get a bite to eat. This is exactly what I do – Sean Kelly of @delicious on Instagram.

I share this content which helps bring exposure of restaurants to my followers and allows me to eat for free on a consistent basis. When I eat at all these different restaurants, neighboring restaurants see the business increase and they want the same.

Not only do I benefit the business that I am helping, but I am also promoting my services – showing other businesses that I can perform in the social media world.

A large part of becoming a successful influencer is being able to prove yourself. If you promise a business that you’ll bring in ‘X’ amount of business from your account, you should live up to it or go over that amount.

Being able to show other client’s proof that you will live up to your business quota or bring in more, in the end that will bring in even more clients for them and gain more people for you to work with.

Same Game, New Look – Sports Highlights

Same Game, New Look - Sports Highlights

It’s become a tradition. Sit down, turn the TV on and watch the game. Only the lucky few are able to go see them in person. Sports have been around for centuries, and as time progressed and their popularity increased, fan bases grew exponentially. As the media began to cover sports, few stations soon gained a monopoly. These became the main places to get all your sport news.

Up until recently, the opinions shared about sports were largely those of mainstream reviewers. As the popularity of social media services such as Instagram and YouTube increases, more people are given the opportunity to make their opinions known. One person whose opinion has gained much more traction is Daniel Padron, the face behind @sportshighlights on Instagram.

I had the opportunity to meet Daniel Padron and find out how he has managed to be heard in such a dominated field. “I came up with the idea when Instagram first started allowing videos rather than just pictures. I would see countless highlights every night watching games during the Big 3 era and I believe that inspired me to start posting highlights” Padron explained.

What started off as a fun pastime has now grown into an audience of 1.7 Million, that continues to increase by the thousands daily. “I didn’t know if people would like or care about my opinion when I started, but I always wanted to be an analyst or reporter for ESPN, so I just gave it a shot” he explained.

Padron started with just his friends following him, however as people began liking, commenting, and tagging others on his posts, his page gained popularity. The engagement he received only helped his posts be seen more. Padron was not only pleasantly surprised to see that many people agreed with his opinions; he was also interested in how people disagreed. This line of direct communication from Padron to his audience separated him from analysts on TV.

Although people can still give their opinions to mainstream reporters, @sportshighlights works to make it a more immersive experience. For instance, if Daniel sees that many people are interested in a particular team or player, he is able to make an effort to post more about it.

Although the experience is slightly more tailored, all teams are reported. One of the best qualities about @sportshighlights is that it had created a medium through which fans from all over the world can exchange opinions and discuss games. With a quick read through the comments, a person is able to see the same highlight through multiple points of views. This feature alone is what draws many audience members in.

Despite the fact that the same mainstream reporters and analysts are featured on TV, @sportshighlights has given sports fans a whole new experience. With the newfound ability to comment and discuss plays with anyone, Sports Highlights has successfully brought fans together and given the same game a fresh new look.
