Your Success In 2010 And Beyond Depends On These 10 Things

Read More: Leadership

In order to be successful in business ….

You have to find a need and fill it … people buy solutions to their problems...

You have to be unique…you have to be someone or have something that separates you from the competition…

And…I believe that this is the most important of all…

You have to have a certain kind of mental toughness because the difference between winning and losing in business is so small that most people don't get it and they lose JUST short of winning…

You can be doing 99% of everything right in business…

But if you miss that 1%…that winning edge…that mental toughness…it is IMPOSSIBLE for you to win.

There are no tests designed to measure what's in the heart of a man or a woman. The key to winning BIG is inside of the individual person. It is their integrity…their people skills...their character. Once they develop the winning edge…They become UNSTOPPABLE…They are force to be RECKONED WITH…They are the LEADER that people are LOOKING FOR.

Here are 10 things that I believe you need to WIN BIG in Life and Business

Get Excited. People cannot handle any more negativity. They can't handle any more wimps and whiners. 90% of the population can stay excited about something for 2-3 months and then they are done with it and on to something else. 7% of the population can stay excited for 2-3 years and then they are off to something else just before they exprience TRUE success. 3% of the population can stay excited for 20 or 30 years…however long it takes to be successful. Those are the folks that win BIG. Those are the success stories that we all hear about. These are the folks that breathe life..excitement... and enthusiasm in every person they meet and into everything they do. People LOVE being around positive...enthusiastic...excited people. Be that person and others will be drawn to you like moths to a flame.

Become a Dreamer Again. You have got to have a great big fat dream that lights you up like the Christmas Tree at Rockefeller Center. It has to be so vivid that whenever you think about it your heart starts pounding in your chest. It's the dream that keeps you awake at night trying to figure out how you are going to make it happen. If you don't have a dream like this you are dead in the water when things get tough. You will have nothing to keep you moving forward and you will quit. Make your dreams so real for yourself that you have no choice but to become the you of your dreams.

Feel GOOD About Yourself. You have got to OBLITERATE the words I CAN'T from your vocabulary. You have got to bury them and let them rest in peace. They can never fall from your lips again..they can never enter your mind again. When you banish those words of lack and limitation from your vocabulary and your mind … YOU CAN DO ANYTHING…YOU BECOME UNSTOPPABLE

Stand For Something. People are fed up with wishy-washy lookie-loos…fence sitters. People are looking for…they are demanding honest LEADERS with integrity to step up and reveal themselves…to LEAD. People are tired of the con artists…the shills who are willing to sell any kind of junk just to make a buck. People are clamoring for honesty. When you step up and stand for something, when you speak with integrity and honesty…the right people will hear you and flock to you. You become the leader that they have been searching for.

Get Used To Being Controversial. You have got to be controversial. When everyone is zigging…you need to zagging. If you are doing exactly what everyone else is doing you are average and ordinary. You are nothing more than mediocre. If you want everyone to like you…mediocre will do the trick just fine. When you choose to be controversial…you become extraordinary. Lot's of people won't like you. Get used to it. You CAN be awesome and tough at the same time. The RIGHT people will appreciate you for it. And they will join forces with you because you are singing a song that is music to their ears.

Get Totally Committed. You must be totally committed to what you are all about. You can't just try something out to see if it works for you. You can't become successful by dipping your big toe in the water to see if the temperature is just right. It's all or nothing. JUMP IN and SWIM. You have got to be committed to doing whatever it takes to get the job done. Commitment gives you the courage you need to fight motivate yourself when things get tough. And trust me….things will get tough. Things will not always work out the way that you want them to. Commitment gives you the strength you need to pick yourself up for the 8th time right after you have fallen flat on your butt 7 times. It gives you the strength to talk to one more person after 100 have said NO to you. It gives you the strength to learn the skills that you need to master a new piece of technology. Commitment gives you confidence…it strengthens your faith in yourself and what you are doing.

Treat People Right. You have got to treat people right. You have got to LOVE people. You have got to CARE about them. You got to be willing to get burnt once in a while so that you can show people how GREAT they really are. Everyone wants to be SOMEBODY. Everyone wants to know that they are IMPORTANT. Everyone wants to know that they are VALUABLE. Everyone wants to be APPRECIATED. When you choose to speak a person's GREATNESS INTO THEM. When you choose to show someone just how IMPORTANT THEY ARE, you just became the miracle that they are looking for.

Have The Right Priorities. You have to have the right priorities. You are a holistic being. Your life must be in balance. Tunnel vision doesn't cut it. If you have a lousy spiritual life…or a lousy personal life…ultimately your business will pay the price for your imbalance. YOU are your business. If you are not thriving personally or spiritually…it will show up in your business sooner or later. The healthier you are…the healthier your business is. Take the time to work on all areas of your life. Your business will thrive becaue of it.

Have The Heart of a Champion. You have got to have the heart of a champion. The desire and will to win is EVERYTHING. You have got to get FIRED UP and STAY FIRED UP. You are here to make a difference with your life. You have got to be willing to pay the price and a little bit more that success demands of you to win. You have got to be mentally tough and you can never…ever quit. QUITTERS NEVER WIN and WINNERS NEVER QUIT.

Be A Leader. You have got to be a leader. Leadership is EVERYTHING. This world desperately needs leaders. Leaders make things happen…they JUST DO IT. "Almost" is a lifestyle for most people…I almost did this….I almost did that… Winners DO IT…Leaders DO IT. They do whatever it takes to get the job done…they do whatever it takes to win. They roll up their sleeves..they hunker down and they just do it…and do it..and do it..and do it…until the job gets done !! Get rid of the excuses… get rid of the I can'ts…banish the I don't want to's…and just DO IT.

I would love to hear your thoughts on what you believe it takes to be successful in both life and business. We are going into the SECOND decade of 21st century and I am sure that everyone has a suggestion or two about what they think are the most powerful attributes of success. So, take a minute to comment and share with everyone else !! I am grateful for all of your feedback !!

P.S. It would be totally awesome of you if you could “Re-Tweet” this post for your Twitter friends. I know this type of content tends to be popular there and if you liked it… it might be something your followers will like as well. Thanks again.

You Goddess, you!

Rose, thank you so much for this post ~ a Recipe for Success if ever there was one. While others have said the same, not often does this kind of advice get packaged quite so succinctly. You are all that the 10 steps advocate, and that gives the post the weight of authenticity and truth.
Thank you for sharing,

Success In 2010

Rose your post is awesome, It drives home some good points. Its leave me little choose other then to work on my personal development skills. I think in 2010 and beyond self promoting is going to be a big factor in business building. Being the best person you could be will go along towards becoming the leader we all need to be. The world is expecting this of us and we need to deliver. They are depending on us and we should not let them down.

All or Nothing?!?!?!


This really is a powerful arcticle!

I would like to comment on one particular point -

"Get Totally's all or nothing..."

Your point is right on the money. There are many who look at "all or nothing" concept in a little different light though, and I'd like to discuss that flip side...

"All or nothing" is what stops many from even taking the first step...they figure if they don't have ALL the skills or ALL the resources or ALL the connections, then they won't even get started.

I know you'll agree that you don't have to get it right, you just have to get it going!

All or nothing commitment to what you believe in is absolutely necessary...all or nothing knowledge is not.

If you are totally committed, the knowledge will come.

Thanks again for a great article Rose!

Great attributes

You hit the nail on the head with this article! For me one key ingredient to success is missing and that is DESIRE. Everything starts with that and that burning desire is what keeps you going and it is that force that makes you do all the other things you are talking about.

Your Success In 2010 And Beyond Depends On These 10 Things

Thank you Rose for a great article,it got me fired up:)

Your Success Depends

Hi, Rose! A wonderfully uplifting article! I like your thoughts on the subject... "Not Everyone Will Like You'... and that is okay. You will inspire the right people.

Treating people right is very important. Everybody wants to be a SOMEBODY... To sum it all up... I think life is about SELF-BELONGING.

To experience success... Kiyosaki says the formula to success is this... ENERGY, PASSION, and BURNING DESIRE.

Thanks for a great article, Rose.

Suck It Up

Fabulous article. Concise and easy to read. Thank you it was a great boost to read.

It is so important to be preparing to make this next year your best year ever. Prepare yourself for success, take action, and then watch it unfold!

Keep the good info coming!

Mary Thayer — Thu, 12/03/2009 - 9:24pm

Thanks for this powerful

Thanks for this powerful article. You can't be a leader if you're following the crowd. I really liked your points about "Feeling Good for Yourself", "Standing for Something" and "Get used to being controversial". Many people won't have the guts to do these things because they care about what other people think. So they let others and their "thinking" run their lives.

Success in 2010

Great article, Rosie. I do have one suggestion to make: pray for wisdom. I have learned so much about business dealings via the Books of Proverbs, Sirach, Ecclesiastes, and Wisdom. These books even helped me in flying airplanes! Don't take my word for it; check them out for yourself. You will be amazed and inspired.

Jason Jahr — Tue, 12/08/2009 - 3:26pm

The Article Is The Bomb!!

I love it we can apply it to the remainder of 2011 and our life will be heaven!!
