Practice “Perfect Practice”

~ an excerpt from Millionaire Secrets In You

 

In today’s demanding society, people are constantly striving to be the best that they can be. After all, in order to land the perfect job or get the things that you want in life, you have to be able to excel and take on the role of a go-getter. How do you get to the level where you would like to be? Anyone will tell you that it will take hard work, a lot of determination and loads of practice!

“They say that nobody is perfect. Then they tell you practice makes perfect.
I wish they’d make up their minds.” ~ Winston Churchill

If you always do what you’ve done, you’ll always get what you got. Any professional athlete, actor, celebrity, public speaker, etc. will tell you that to achieve an extremely high level of success you need to practice. Michael Jordan is considered by many to be the greatest basketball player of all time, Jerry Rice holds just about all the receiving records in the NFL, both men have been known to practice to improve their skills more than anyone else in their sports. And this holds true and consistent with any great success in any business or industry. You simply can’t achieve a level of success without practice.

“My father taught me that the only way you can make good at anything is to practice,
and then practice some more.” ~ Pete Rose

Nobody ever wakes up knowing how to play classical music on the piano. Learning an instrument is just one example of how practice can get you further and further toward your desired result. In order to get to the success level that you would like, be it an instrument, sport, salesperson or speaker it is important to set goals for yourself and take the time to practice until you get better and better. While you are learning, it is imperative that you are able to take constructive criticism and feedback on how you are doing from your mentor and coaches or even your peers and clients.

There will be a number of things in your life where you will only attain greatness as long as you practice. Whether you are looking to master a sport, give an amazing presentation or be an outstanding salesperson, there is nothing better than buckling down and practicing.

Half of the battle in this lifetime will be realizing that nobody is perfect. While you may be able to achieve a perfect score on a test or you may find the perfect house to live in, there are many more things out there that will get better with a little bit of practice. If you look at your area of business, there is always room for improvement. Why would you want to be perfect anyhow? It would seem as though perfection would be a little bit boring and lonely. After all, when you are perfect, you have nothing left to strive for, right?

They always say that practice makes perfect, when in reality practice only makes you want to practice more and more. And it’s not just practice, it’s perfect practice that makes the difference. Simply logging time does not cut it. While it may seem to be a daunting task to practice something repeatedly, you must keep your eye on the prize at all times in order to keep things in perspective.

“I know you’ve heard it a thousand times before.
But it’s true – hard work pays off.
If you want to be good, you have to practice, practice, practice.
If you don’t love something, then don’t do it.”
~ Ray Bradbury

Think about it … repetition is the mother of skill; it’s the key to learning or improving on anything, so practice, perfect practice!

Success Leaves Clues …

Success Leaves Clues ~ Learn From Others Before You

By Jodi Nicholson

In 1954 Roger Bannister was the first person to break the four- minute mile. The next year over a dozen other people also did it. Something that hadn’t been done before in history is now common practice. Why? Because success leaves many clues and just because you haven’t done something yet, doesn’t mean it can’t be done. All you need to do is find someone who has done what you want and do exactly what they did to achieve it. Follow their blueprint; mirror their pattern. Certainly, you know plenty of people who you can look to and you will see their level of success. These people have worked hard to get where they are and you can look at them as shining examples of what you could be if you tried.

“If you want to be successful, find someone who has achieved the results you want and copy what they did and you’ll achieve the same results.” ~Anthony Robbins

Do you think that some of the successful people that have come before you have suffered from mixed thoughts of themselves or doubts in their abilities? Of course! However, they were able to look past these negative thoughts and feelings in order to focus on persevering and reaching all of their goals. Personal success and success in the business world will only come to you if you can take notes from the people who have succeeded before you in cutting all of the negative thoughts out of their path.

Libraries and bookstores are filled with books of people who have achieved great things and overcame what at the time seemed to be insurmountable obstacles. Their whole history of achievement is laid out there for you to learn from. If you put your hand in a pot of honey some of it will stick. Reading is no different, read a motivational or self help book and some of it will stick. Put the concepts into action and watch yourself gain momentum and improve.

“That some achieve great success, is proof to all that others can achieve it as well” ~Abraham Lincoln

Life is truly a journey and you may find a good number of people that you can look up to along the way, even a coach or mentor you if you choose. You can find people in your life or through books and seminars that you can look up to that will become a great source of strength and inspiration. This will be a wonderful asset to have and along the way, compliment yourself for wanting to be better rather then beating yourself up for any of the mistakes that arise.  Be fierce, persistent and un-afraid to talk out your thoughts and feelings with those people in your life that you look up to. I’ve been told many times by my coaching clients that they feel safe in the space we’ve created together, and totally free to express and explore the many facets of their life and business. This, for me personally, is a wonderful compliment to my coaching practice.

Take your life one step at a time. You can achieve great success when you take each goal as it comes, and then work onwards toward the next one. I set landmarks and checkpoints along the way when setting goals to stay on track and regroup when necessary. There may be any number of obstacles that you will need to overcome, so take some clues from the successful people who you can think of and look at some of the clues that they left behind. You can use these clues to set a solid structure in place for the foundation of your own success. You will also be setting your own new levels, and creating your own clues from your own personal experience.

“No one lives long enough to learn everything they need to learn starting from scratch. To be successful, we absolutely, positively have to find people who have already paid the price to learn the things that we need to learn to achieve our goals.”  ~Brian Tracy

Throughout your journey in life and the successes that you are longing for, you can learn a great deal from just about everyone that you meet. Life is a learning process and you have to be aware of everything surrounding you in order to make it. Remember, success leaves clues so think about it … you can achieve whatever you want in life. Just find someone who has done exactly what you want, do what they did to achieve it and you could end up with the same or similar results and possibly something even better.
