Success comes to those who have a strong will to succeed, a vision of what they want and finally a plan to guide them to get it. Does that sound really simple and easy to do, well it really is. The challenge you face though, is that as easy as it is to do, so easy is it not to do. It is really easy to invest the time to create a crystal clear vision for the future, build an action plan to get you there and then to act on the plan daily. It is also easy to get lost in a cycle of pointless wasted days of busyness and overwhelm, where each day just blurs into the next and we never seem to achieve very much at all.

Find a recipe that Works
A great method for finding ways to improve the level of successes you are enjoying in your life right now. Is to identify people, who have managed to achieve excellence and great success in their lives and businesses, in similar areas, to the ones where you want to achieve success in and then to explore how they managed to do it. Try to get to know these people, and if possible ask them to mentor you. Even if they are unable to mentor you, over time try to learn their recipe for success and gradually use this picture, to build a similar recipe for yourself.

Know Exactly what you want
The one thing that stands out the most for me, about all the successful people I have admired and whose biographies I have read, over the years, is that each one of them had a clear vision and a plan behind their success. They did not just randomly arrive at the incredible level of success they eventually enjoyed, shake their head and wonder how they got there. They created a crystal clear vision in their head of exactly what they wanted in their future, created a plan to get them there and then with dogged determination; they chipped away every day, until they achieved their goals.

Action Idea: If you want to invite great success into your life, start by doing what all the successful people I have studied have done. Create a vivid, crystal clear picture in your mind of exactly what you want, write it down in the clearest and most easily to understand format possible. Know exactly why it is important to you to realise that vision. Once you have a crystal clear picture in your mind of exactly what you want your future to be like. It is a good idea for you to create a plan for your success, one that will work well and will take you to the finish line powerfully and in style.

I have written some ideas below to help you create your “Powerful Plan for Peak Performance”.

Creating your Unique Plan
All people are different, some people need plenty of detail in their lives and they work best with a very detailed plan, which highlights every intricate detail. Other people are more freewheeling and work better within a plan that offers only an outline or framework within which they must work.

The first question to answer is “What is the right plan”? The right plan is one that suites you and your style. A plan that is unique to your circumstances, one that fits you and is right for you. Each of us is unique, driven and motivated by very different things. No one knows you better than you know yourself, create a plan, which suites your personality and one that considers your strengths and weaknesses.

Take Action on your Plan
No plan is of any value, unless you can actually use it daily to take inspired action. To be effective your plan must be broken back to include individual daily actions, which you can put into your daily schedule and actually take action to complete. Long term sustainable success requires that you take action daily, the secret to guarantee your success, is to ensure that the actions you are taking are indeed the right actions. Review your progress daily, weekly and monthly and ensure that the actions you are taking are delivering the expected outcomes and that you are applying sufficient discipline to ensure that you are completing all the actions scheduled in your dairy.

Reviewing your day
It is always good practice to set time aside at the end of your day to reflect on how you did. Are you meeting your commitments to create the future you desire? This is an opportunity for you to go over everything you have done that day. Re-examine everything you have learnt that day and lock all the valuable information into your brain. This will allow you to store all the most valuable experiences, for use at a later date.

Look back over your day and examine all the people you saw, who you talked to, what was said, what happened and how you felt. Each day is like a mosaic in the big picture of your life, carefully store each one so that you can use it to create a wonderful picture of your past. This allows you to gain the maximum benefit from your past experiences and makes your past experiences even more valuable, so they can serve you in the future.

Meet your Future every day
Your plan can only work if you actually take action every day. As you know we operate best with a daily success routine. Create time slots in your daily schedule that are devoted to work on the tasks highlighted in your plan. I call these time slots in my daily schedule “Meetings With My Future” Show commitment and perseverance every day and make sure that you meet your commitments to your future. Develop discipline and make completing those daily tasks your top priority, every day. As you repeat this positive cycle over time you will move closer and closer to the future you desire and any personal or business goal becomes achievable.

Act on your Plan Everyday
Finally ensure that you act on your plan in an inspired fashion every day. Simply commit to do what it takes and work your plan every day. Your daily disciplined actions, over time, will add up to massive equity. Stay committed to take action every day and remain disciplined and focused. You have got so much to gain when you commit to apply these few really simple principles in your life.
