Attending a private wealth group event, Wayne Allan Root gave us a life success coaching masterclass you can use as key success factors in business.
Wayne shared a long list of amazing insights into daily habits of high achievers.
Here’s SIX that I’ve extracted as key success factors in business, that have always made a huge difference to me, in both my sense of wellbeing and business achievements.
#1 Being the early bird that catches the worm
History has shown the most successful achievers in our world get up early and take a short walk. This charges up your body and mind with energy and focuses your entire day.
“Angels whisper to a man when he goes for a walk.”
Scientific research shows that early risers are more successful in all aspects of their life. Morning is the very best time to make decisions because this is when your goals are clearest and you are the most full of hope and optimism.
(You just have to turn on the news for five minutes to see how easily you can be brought down into thinking there’s no hope and the world is a miserable place. But it’s just the way the media play it – bad news sells!)
So why not try setting your alarm five minutes earlier each day, in small increments.
#2 Working on self-belief and self-worth
As that chunk of ‘precious time’ builds up, go out for a walk around your block for 20-30 minutes and experience what a difference it will make to your day, to your energy and to your sub-conscious self-talk.
Start using that extra time for exercise, meditation, prayer, affirmations, visualisation, yoga – something that really helps you confirm what you want in life with conviction and passion.
#3 Accepting you are what you eat
Watch closely what you put into your body. If your energy is low, you’re finding it hard to sleep, your bones and muscles ache, it could be time to increase the QUALITY of your diet. I’ve found this to be one of the biggest success factors in business for me personally.
Health is 80% about nutrition. Eating a range of colourful fruits and vegetables is a great way to help you get all the essential micronutrients your body needs to function optimally every day.
A great book to digest (excuse the pun!) and apply to your meal plans is ‘What Color is your Diet‘. It looks at how you can get the full range of nutrients, vitamins and minerals by eating foods across all colours of the rainbow.
Cutting down on calories, avoiding alcohol, caffeine and toxins is a great way to shed some body fat. Your liver can only do one job at a time and if it’s busy getting rid of those things, it cannot get rid of fat so it stays in your body. Even if you eat less, you may not lose weight.
Calories that don’t get used, stay with you! Discipline is the root of all success.
Your waist size is the very best indicator of your health as well as your ideal weight. Did you know that belly fat comes in the main from the amount of processed sugar you eat – that’s sweets, jams, refined flour products like bread, cake, biscuits, and alcohol.
#4 Understanding the vitality of water
Another big factor is hydration. Water helps everything to work properly and flush out the toxins that drain our energy and wellbeing. Do you drink at least 1.5 litres water every day?
Water is one of the best natural remedies for a huge range of ailments. Most people walk around chronically dehydrated, so adopting this one good habit can change your health dramatically.
Water is also an absolute requirement if you’re trying to lose weight because your body needs water to filter and eliminate waste and fat.
#5 Setting goals as a contract with yourself
Successful people have a clear set of goals. It’s one of the best-known success factors in business and a well-established fact that the top 3% earners have these goals written down, and revisit them often, usually twice daily.
What are your key goals for today, this week, this month, this year, 2-3 years, 5-10 years?
Going over your prime goals first thing in the morning and last thing at night may seem a bit strange, difficult even, at first. But try it for 2 weeks and see how your day becomes fired up – focused, energised, action orientated.
You can easily start a business, but YOU then have to make it work. Having clear goals makes it easier to hold yourself accountable – and harder not to!
Prioritise your activities, find ways to stretch yourself, cut out all of the wasteful activity that serves no purpose but to take you away from your goals. Working at home saves commute time – use it usefully. Stop watching crap TV – one of the biggest time wasters of our time – creates stagnation & misery.
Be addicted to purposeful ACTION. If you’re sitting around doing nothing productive, chances of success are ZERO!
#6 Finding ways to connect with people every day
Get the edge over the next guy/gal – outwork, outhustle and outsmart is the only way to get ahead in a world dominated by depression. If one out of every 20 opportunities comes through, it’s obvious you need to have lots of balls in the air.
Remember the saying “The squeaky wheel always gets the oil.” Millionaires, never ask permission, they just take action and apologise later. Whatever you do comes back to you. That’s the best way to take care of people – even if they’re idiots 🙂
Listen to someone’s story, hear their problems. Steer the conversation so that people ask you for what they want.
Finally, here’s your
1 hour mental improvement
1 hour physical improvement
1 hour financial improvement
Fill those hours with 3-4 actions that advance your goals … new ideas, helping people, income-producing activity. 4 actions a day – 6 days a week – 24 actions a week – 96 per month – that’s 1052 actions a year.
This holistic approach to business development is exactly why entrepreneurs like us succeed.
