Most of us have heard the phrase “results inform the world” and we have been taught that people who are successful at any endeavor simply know how to produce consistent results. This is true, however it is important to understand results are the bi-product of a proven formula for success. Understanding and embracing this formula will produce consistent results in every corner of our lives. Let’s take a closer look at the results process.
R – Repetition. Results are born from repetitive action. Those of us who engage in physical exercise know it takes months of consistent training before we begin to see the fruits of our labor. Learning a new language or playing a musical instrument also takes a tremendous amount of repetition before we are able to commit the syntax or chords to memory.
E – Energy plays an important role in our ability to produce consistent results. In order to maximize our results we must maximize our energy. They go hand in hand. Healthy people tend to have a more positive outlook on life than unhealthy people.
S – Sacrifice is a mindset. People who produce consistent results understand the role sacrifice plays in their achievement. Sacrifice requires giving something(s) up in order to reach a higher purpose. For example, anyone who has lost a significant amount of weight has given up something (unhealthy foods) in order to gain something (health, vitality, self esteem) of greater value. In order to produce consistent results we must be willing to make consistent sacrifices.
U – Undying faith. Without undying faith most of us will give up or quit at the first sign of trouble. Faith allows us to trust that which we are unable to see so we may boldly go where we have not ventured before. Without undying faith we will not journey far.
L – Leadership. We must first become leaders of self before we can lead or influence others. When we become true leaders of self we are able to summon the discipline necessary to produce consistent, meaningful results in every area of our lives.
T – Trust in the process. Setbacks, failures, frustration and self doubt are our constant companions as we strive to reach our goals, ambitions and dreams. When we have placed our complete trust in the process we rarely take things personally and are able to maintain a laser focus on the end result. If we doubt the process, we will experience minimal results.
S – Skills. When we focus on refining and sharpening our skills we are sending a very clear message to the universe we are “dead serious” about achieving our desired results. Much like an Olympic athlete, our goal is to get better, faster and stronger. Sharpened skills combined with massive action leads to unstoppable results!
Results inform the world and we now have access to a proven success formula for producing consistent results in every corner of our lives.
I look forward to your thoughts and feedback.
