The book 'The One Minute Millionaire' by Mark Victor Hansen and Robert Allen is filled with great ideas and 'Aha' moments. If you haven't read it yet, I can heartily recommend it.
One of the thoughts that it puts forward is that nobody gets successful without a system.
While I guess there are a few lucky souls who muddle into their success, most of us need a process to follow.
The book defines a system as
Isn't that a good mnemonic!
It exactly defines the reason why you need a system for everything that you do.
One of the key way-points on your journey to success is when you finally realize the power of systems and start to build your own. because make no mistake - personal development coaches, mentors and trainers can tell you about the systems THEY use, but the only systems that will always work for YOU are the ones that you have built for yourself.
Coaches and mentor's personal development ideas can provide you with a guide, but you have to do a little of the work as well!
Many people make the mistake of thinking that buying the latest 'guru's' system will ensure their success. It probably won't, unless you are prepared to break down the advice and then build it up again so it suits your own personality.
Successful people tend to take a bit of this plan, a bit of another, added a few wrinkles of their own and made a pretty good profit.
Success is highly personal thing. My definition of it is certainly different to yours. So why think that another person's system for achieving THEIR success will automatically bring you YOURS?
Beg and borrow ideas from everyone around you. Look to see what systems successful people do use, but then adapt them for your own use.
