Do you have a clear picture of what success actually means to you and are you serious and committed about achieving that success? Are you content to continue to just leave it all up to the winds of chance? Or are you committed to build a plan for your future, where you keep a record of your progress, the lessons you learn and you have a system to record any great new ideas you may come up with? I believe that if you are really serious about your future success, where you have desires to become wealthy, sophisticated, healthy, powerful, influential, cultured, sophisticated and a unique and memorable individual, who will leave a legacy.
Then you must have a system for consciously tracking your daily progress, all the things you have to be grateful for, a record of your success, the lessons you have learned from your challenges and a way of recording all the great ideas you may come up with.
There are many different options, which you could use to do all of these things.
Keep a journal
This is a book or series of books in which you record all the important facets of your life. By keeping a journal you are forced to invest time every day to think about all the things, which matter in your life. This daily activity will help you to track your progress, record your victories, record and log all your experience, focus on all the things you have to be grateful for and give you a place to store and easily recall any new ideas you may have.
Keeping a journal is a really great way of recording all the important things, which happen in your life. It is however not always the easiest system to recall and utilise all of them. It is for this reason that I recommend that you supplement your journal with the following:
An electronic or printed chart to track your progress daily, weekly, monthly and quarterly against your goals or targets.
An achievement board to record all your victories. This is a really important tool, which will help you to see progress, reward yourself and will serve as inspiration, during those challenging times, when it feels like you are not making any progress at all.
Gratitude board helps you to record all the wonderful things you have in your life. This pictorial representation, gives you something positive to focus on every day. This positive picture will help you to remain focused and assist you to have a positive attitude.
An idea map, where you record all your ideas. This will help you to put your ideas in one place, where you can schedule time once a week to explore all of them and see, if there are any opportunities hidden within any of the individual ideas or a combination thereof.
Remember that your journal and all the support tools around it as I have described above, will firstly serve you as a record of what has happened and secondly it will be your daily reminder about what you need to do every day, to achieve the success you desire. When you consistently use these tools, you to remain inspired, driven and passionate about your future success and they will then effectively become the building blocks, which will support you to build a success habit set and lead a productive and successful life.
Yes of course this will take work, but the benefits you will get to enjoy as a result of this success habit, will be well worth the effort. Your life will effectively change and you will evolve into the achiever you know you already are.
