To succeed in your life, there are several key elements you MUST have. These elements are…
“If you are working on something really exciting that you care about, you don’t have to be pushed. The vision pulls you.” ~ Steve Jobs
Without a strong, compelling vision for what you want to create, you want have the focus, inspiration and drive to make a big impact. Not only that, you won’t even know where you’re going.
To successful create a compelling vision, you need to know two main things:
Where are you and where do you want to go?
Here’s some simple questions to help you find out where you are in your life:
How have you been showing up in your life?
What results have you been having entrepreneurially?
Where are you on your journey to making it big?
When you get clear on where you’re at and you acknowledge and accept where you’re at, you’ll have already started progressing to the next chapter of your life.
You can ask yourself the following questions to help you write out a strong, compelling vision:
What do I really want to create in your life?
If I had all the energy and resources in the world, what is it that I would create in the world?
If I was 10x more courageous, what would I be doing?
What does making it big look like for me?
What do I want to contribute to others and myself? What are some of the most inspiring accomplishments I want to make?
Make sure it’s emotionally charged and that it lights you up. You don’t need to make it perfect, it just needs to work for you.
“You will never reach your destination if you stop and throw stones at every dog that barks.” ~ Winston Churchill
To create anything extraordinary in your life, you’re going to need to master your focus. If you’re not blocking out at least a few 50 minute time blocks in your day to masterfully focus on creating results, it’s going to be very difficult for you to put the energy in to create your vision.
One of the most powerful ways we can consciously direct our focus is through the use of questions. When we ask better questions, we get better answers…and when we get better answers, we make better decisions…and when we make better decisions, we create a greater destiny.
Another powerful way you can master your focus is by intentionally setting your results/goals every morning. What are the most important things to accomplish today for you to live your vision?
“Passion is the genesis of genius.” ~ Tony Robbins
If you don’t have passion, you’re going to get burnt out and eventually give up. Pain drives us and passion inspires us. Passion is what makes something fulfilling, and success without fulfillment is not success. I heard of an interesting definition of passion once: that which you love so much that you’re willing to sacrifice for it.
What is it that you’re truly passionate about? Remember this everyday as this is your fuel for success.
“Its not resources but resourcefulness that ultimately makes the difference.” ~ Tony Robbins
Our greatest resource is our resourcefulness. If you haven’t mastered resourcefulness, you’re bound to run into obstacles and feel stuck more often.
When you master resourcefulness, you experience abundance as so many possibilities open up to you all the time.
5. Massive Action
“Your ‘I Can’ is more important than your IQ.” ~ Robin Sharma
You need to MOVE. If you want to make it big in anything, you need to take MASSIVE ACTION. Not just any actions either, it must be strategic actions that are constructive to your vision.
One of the best ways to take massive strategic action is to start with your results. With intention, write down the most important result(s) you must accomplish in this hour/day/week and then write down all the actions that you can take to achieve that result. Circle the best ones and start moving.
“You are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with.” ~ Jim Rohn
You need someone to hold you accountable to the vision you want to create. Unfortunately, you can’t always count on your family and friends, unless they’re as dedicated to making it big as you are and committed to regularly checking in with you.
One of the best ways to receive accountability is to join or create a mastermind peer group. There are many groups online these days, and you can surely find someone who’d be up to do check-in calls/messages with you weekly, maybe even daily.
Another fantastic way to receive accountability is by having a coach in your life. If you truly want extraordinary accountability, it can’t be with just any coach. It must be with someone who will see you for your soul, someone who knows your vision, someone who’s an optimizer and peak performer themselves, and someone who’s willing to hold you to your high standards and do whatever it takes to show up with full presence and focus on reminding and empowering you to be your best.

“Success without fulfillment is the ultimate failure.” ~ Tony Robbins
If you’re not celebrating, it’s not fun…and if it’s not fun, it’s just not worth it. We deserve to celebrate all of our wins. In fact, we deserve to celebrate our lives in every day and in every moment. The most truly successful people always know how to celebrate their wins, and they make that a MUST in their lives.
Cheers to the great journey of making it big in your life for the world. Remember these key 7 elements and implement them daily for success is waiting for you to claim it.
