It doesn’t matter if you are trying to drop a few pounds, control your hypertension, start your blog, or write your book. There is only ONE key that you need to unlock the door to your success. That key is PREPARATION!!
Is that the ONLY thing I need to be successful?
Well, like most answers that I give lately, the answer is “yes and no”
What does that mean? Either preparation is all I need or it isn’t. So which is it?
I figured… Let me explain.
Once you take on a new endeavor, you have to realize that there will be a lot of moving parts, especially in the beginning. There will be a lot of discomfort. You’ll have to change your mindset around many different things. You will probably also need to purchase some things to get you started.
So then, preparation is NOT all I need! I knew it…
Notice, I never said that preparation was ALL you needed. What I said was that it was the one key to your SUCCESS in that thing you are about to start. Here’s what I mean.
If you start on a new journey, regardless of the type of journey, you need to get yourself ready for it. You need to understand where your mindset is and where it needs to be. You need figure out who the successful people are in that area and begin to study them. You should calculate the costs up front, so that you know what it is you need to spend. And you probably want to know how much time it will take away from your daily life and family so that you don’t disrupt things without warning. All of that needs to be thoroughly thought out ahead of time. THAT’S what I mean by preparation.
By mapping out the task at hand, it’s like you are creating a guide to your success. Understanding that the more you prepare, the more you are ready for what will come your way is important.
Does that mean that I won’t have any surprises if I prepare enough?
Absolutely not! Unless you are Ms. Cleo, you will not be able to foresee what is going to happen in the future. BUT preparing for it will help you avoid many of the unnecessary pitfalls that cause others to fail.
So, I should do exactly as all the successful people do and avoid the things that unsuccessful people did?
Not exactly. To do EXACTLY what they did would take the exact same circumstances, and that’s pretty much impossible. But what you can do is use the strategies that they used to create the outcomes that they wanted. Also, it doesn’t mean to just avoid and ignore everything that unsuccessful people did. They could have had some great strategies that were implemented incorrectly. Or maybe their timing was wrong. I don’t know, but there are lots of possibilities.
What are you trying to tell me, Doc??
What I am saying is to make sure that you are not just jumping into any new thing without looking into and understanding it. I want you to have the most success possible and that usually means preparing for it. So whether you are doing a 10 day Master Cleanse, a 3 day Water Fast, preparing to run a marathon, writing a book or starting a new podcast, you want to map it out so that you can understand a bit of what you are getting into before you are in over your head.
A wise man once said, “If you fail to plan, they you are planning to fail.”
Make sure you are planning your SUCCESS!
