Success Is A F.A.R.C.E. (Part 5)

| February 29th, 2012 | No Comments »

The last step in the process of being successful is execution or action. It doesn’t matter how Focused you are, how great your Attitude is, your level of Responsibility or how Committed you are, without Execution, all the rest of the steps are useless. Everything boils down to execution, but not just any action, the correct action. So if you want to be successful in business, you’ve got to take massive, consistent, laser- focused action. As Mary O’Connor says, “It’s not so much how busy you are, but why you are busy. The bee is praised. The mosquito is swatted.” Yet, so many people don’t take action. They do everything it takes, but they fall short in the action taking department. The question is why. Maybe they’re afraid of success or they’re afraid of failure or they’re afraid of the unknown or of the change that will happen in their

There’s an old saying that goes like this. “A chicken is involved with your breakfast, but a pig is committed.” Now when you think about that, very quickly you should realize that all a hen has to do is lay an egg. She is involved. On the other hand, a pig is your bacon, your sausage, your ham. In other words, a pig is your breakfast and therefore that makes the pig quite committed. Like the pig, you have to be 100% committed to whatever you’re doing. Actually, if you’re not 100% committed, you’re not committed at all. Commitment is an all or nothing game. If you don’t believe me, just be 99% committed to standing up if you’re sitting down. If you stood up, you’re 100%. So, what is commitment and why do so many people have a hard time with it? Well, the best definition I’ve ever heard

The second step to being truly successful is having a whatever it takes attitude. Notice I did not say a, “once in a while attitude” or a “maybe I’ll do it attitude”. The reason is that true champions don’t give up. They persevere through thick and thin. They keep going no matter what. And what is the fuel that drives their actions? Their attitude. The way they look at themselves and the way they look at the world and the way they look at their skills, talents and abilities is paramount to their success. It explains why some people who have every adversity against them in business are motivated and inspired to succeed anyway. It explains why others fail over and over again despite having everything going for them in terms of finances and opportunities, etc. So, how do you turn your attitude into a winning one? How do you

All successful people have certain things in common. Whether they’re in business or not, it doesn’t matter. The principals I’m going to share with you will motivate you and inspire you and propel you forward in your life and your business. I named this blog post success is a F.A.R.C.E. because it’s an acronym. FARCE is: Focus Attitude Responsibility Commitment Execution So, let’s take a look at the first one in some detail. First, what you focus on is what you tend to manifest. The more energy you put into something, the quicker it usually comes together. The key is to always focus on what you want and where you’re going, not on what you don’t want and where you’ve been. So, if you’re in a negative situation now and you keep focusing on the negative, then you’ll end up with more negative outcomes. Focus on the solution to the
