From the author of Me and Earl and the Dying Girl comes a novel about music, love, friendship, and freedom. How did IKEA become the world’s largest design brand, as popular as Lego, CocaCola and Nike? By Karen Armon I recently attended a private conference with a few other coaches where the speaker said something that was truly amazing and it struck me so much that I need to share it with you.
If you are simply wondering whether or not you will be successful in anything that you are attempting to do, albeit moving up or out in your career, starting a new business, beginning an exercise program, or whatever, you’ve already failed.
You aren’t going to “try” or you aren’t going to “sure hope you’ll succeed.” Commitment means that success is the only option you will allow for yourself and you will do whatever it takes to reach your goals.
If you aren’t sure or don’t know, then you must find out what strategies really work and what tactics you must employ. If something didn’t work in the past, are you absolutely sure you know why it didn’t work, particularly if you were truly committed? Finally, you have to have on your desk each day what you will do so that you can succeed for that day. Each night, you need to get yourself ready so that the next morning there is no question about what you are going to do because it is all laid out for you the night before. Success is about momentum and momentum is a function of how you feel about achieving your goals.
Have you made the necessary transformation to realize your dreams and move ahead in your life? What baby steps today, right now, have you planned to accomplish that will cause you to be wildly successful and fulfilled in your life?
If you are not doing those things that propel you into your future, what are you waiting for?
Someone recently asked me to name my 3 most essential secrets for success as an Entrepreneur.
I always feel Steve Jobs was a great example of a passionate leader — and look how that transferred to his staff and customers. More times than I can count I have wannabe Entrepreneurs come to me with their ideas for a new business – sometimes the ideas are even quite original and good but yet I will meet this wannabe entrepreneurs a few months later or even a year plus later and the still have not got started. Look there will be plenty of challenges in any business – no matter if it is the start-up phase or you are a long established business.
You have launched your business – it is succeeding but without the ability to stay focused and calm when challenges arise you cannot hope for long term success. With hindsight I can say that fortunately for me I learned my lesson about remaining calm as a young entrepreneur (aged 16) when one morning I woke up to discover that my website hosting company (and my website) had disappeared overnight. How long did it take me to think of a solution – actually not very long at all once I calmed down.

Had I not calmed down and got my head around that issue who is to know, I might not even being doing what I am doing today. OK, lets get this straight, not everyone will disappoint you, in fact very few will disappoint you but those that do can leave you feeling very sore and often angry. In my business I have content writers, JV Partners, Programmers, Affiliates, Web Designers to name a few that I deal with daily.
Whatever it is that has gone wrong it will almost certainly have cost you time and money – but getting down in the dumps about it and being annoyed will not help much, if at all. As long as we are in business we will be learning – even when it goes wrong we learn something, even if it is only that we have discovered a method that does not work!
I appreciate this is not the usual long list of points that I might be better known for in a post but I do hope you agree there might just be something new here that can benefit you and your business. After seeing how well it worked for us, we decided to develop it into a plugin our readers could use. Well Michale, You’ve given 4 points but in my viewpoint first 2 points were enough which did mention. So along with point 1, point 2 and 4 are really important, yet I agree point 1 always comes first. This is the biggest benefit of planning when you get to important intersections you know which way to turn.

The very fact that you aren’t sure guarantees that you will not make it and fall short of your goals.
If you’ve tried, and given something all of your effort in the past and you still didn’t make your goals (and be honest, now!), then it may be that you need to change your approach.
Many walk into the day responding to crises, demands, and urgent requests and before they know it, the day is done and nothing was accomplished. I call these “High Value Activities” and make sure they are front and center on your desk so that, before you fire up your laptop, you have a game plan set out for yourself.
How you share your time, talents, and treasures in pursuit of your dreams is what really matters. If you want to have the life and career that you truly envision, then you need to make your days count intentionally – without leaving any room for doubt. Jumpstart your team's success with the best and brightest CEOs sharing their secrets for making a good organization great. Also, I am not that comfortable with the word secrets any more, I far rather say they are real world business lessons learned in some cases the hard way by yours truly.

Basically they have over thought things, are waiting for the perfect moment (which will never come) and feel more comfortable talking about what they are going to do rather than DOING!
At the time I was super annoyed with the web-hosting company owners – in reality I had been scammed. Fortunately it was only a small beginner website (but it meant the world to me at the time) and using Google and the Cache feature I was able to rebuild the bulk of my website very quickly. I have had people steal my ideas, copy my websites, abuse my intellectual property, steal my software, fail to pay commissions owed and generally be rat-bags! If I’m really honest, it still gets me down but these days I suppose I have just become more philosophical about it. Indeed being annoyed and angry is more likely to cost you even more money, because I promise you it is hard to be creative and upbeat and run a business when you are annoyed and angry. What is more I’d love to have your thought in the comments below and even if you have something that is usually not mentioned to add yourself. Today, it gets us more subscribers than our homepage opt-in, footer opt-in, sidebar opt-in and squeeze pages combined.

Now I had every reason to be upset but it was not until I calmed down and started thinking of solutions rather than being upset that a solution came to me. End of the day, the company isn’t going to do anything to help me so I have to take action. In this candid analysis, former IKEA top director Johan Stenebo writes for the first time about the corporation’s ruthless rise to the top. And what you do consistently do every day by giving yourself your personal best is what guarantees that you feel better about your journey, you gain momentum you desire in your life and you arrive at the place you want to be.
In the words of Joe Deitch, CEO of Commonwealth Financial Network: "The leader chooses the course, drives the bus, and keeps his or her eyes, ears, and heart open. People buy passion – if you are not passionate about your products and your mission how can you expect your customers to be?
