What is success you say!
One thing I know for sure, success doesn't automatically appear..wake up one day and voila! No, successful people are very intentional and they plan. Many successful people do things over and over until they get it right. They focus. When you are laser-focused, you can accomplish anything. Successful people are not reactive, but proactive...never let something slide until tomorrow when you can do it today!
Podcasts are my go-to inspiration. There are so many to choose and each one has a different value. Tony Robbins is one of my favs! He teaches how you can become extraordinary and discusses how you can let go of what is holding you back! My favorite goal setting podcasts come from Terri Savelle Foy! She is an amazing little powerhouse, a self-proclaimed "cheerleader of dreams". I have to say I am quite addicted to her podcasts each morning. She is a HUGE believer in morning routines...meditation & prayer, exercise, and vision working (out loud). Reminds me of the Power of Positive Thinking from Robert Schuller, a televangelist from the 80's and 90"s that was extremely popular with his Hour of Power! Terri swears (not really swear) that by changing her routine, it changed her life. I have to say, that there is some truth with that, as acknowledged by my personal experience by doing little things with my routines and habits to keep me focused on my goals.
I also listen to a number of "entrepreneur" type of podcasts that are wonderful for the technical aspects of business ranging from marketing, branding, social media, etc...Some of my favs are Jenna Kutcher, Julie Soloman, and The DuckTape Marketing Podcasts to name a few. I love to listen to Oprah Winfrey and her guests with her masterclasses, extremely fascinating and in depth into the human soul.
Long story short, successful people do things that unsuccessful people do not-they are intentional, they plan, they vision, they seek out others who are experts in areas, they change routines and behaviors that are not productive, they keep themselves energized and healthy, totally focused to toward their goal. If you have any podcasts you enjoy, give us a shout!
