  • Revving Up Personal Tripod to Experience Success

    Success photo from ShutterstockOur personal tripod is at the center of all we do and it needs to be nourished to feed the soul. The three legs of our unique tripod consist of mind, body and spirit. When all three legs are deeply rooted together, just like a traditional tripod, we become unshakeable and unstoppable. We can achieve anything we set our minds to. Within that first leg, all that is required is that we hold a profound belief we will be successful, maintain a long distant vision of where we are headed, and be willing to improve upon our plan for achievement.

    A major differentiator between those who are unable and those who are able to fulfill their dreams is the inherent dedication to perseverance and lifetime learning. Your positive mindset will keep you on track and open to learning in spite of errors, mishaps and steep hurdles to be overcome. The one change in thinking that frequently needs to be made is how one deals with the fear of failure. As long as you are dedicated to succeeding, failure doesn’t truly exist. What some view as failure is, for others, merely marketing research revealing what does not work. Adopting this belief system, those headed toward success use these findings as excellent advisors for the next best direction to be tried.

    Positive mindset necessitates quiet time alone to introspectively examine where you are today and where you are headed. Consider your values and priorities as you review your plan of attainment. An added component is to incorporate teaching and helping others as you learn. By becoming a mentor and holding out a helping hand, you are then rewarded by ably stepping into the spotlight of leadership.

    Just as our mental state is continually exercised and rejuvenated the same applies to our body. Pushing oneself to exercise after a long day, and making it a habit to do so, stimulates the mind and serves to lift one’s spirit. This is so because energy and sense of well-being increase, which leads back to maintaining a positive mindset.

    Upon incorporating these principles of establishing your personal tripod, you are now ready for ensuring your business tripod – that of belief, vision and plan. Do you have a profound belief in your forthcoming success? What does your success look like at the end of your rainbow? What will your legacy be? Finally, how are you going to attain your vision? Answering these questions prepares you to create the milestones required for achieving your cherished vision.

    Recognizing that obstacles sometimes do occur, equip yourself with flexibility to adjust your strategy. Upon affirming you are ready to make your dream come true, no matter the dire predictions others provide, return to your 100% committed belief that you will be successful. By so doing, you are able to change the statistics to your favor, build a strong personal brand, and enjoy the journey of getting there.
