This question I get asked numerous times in regards to health, weight loss, career, finances, relationships, people read all these success books, watch videos, talk to mentors, friends and family but find a hard time implementing these systems. Or they just can not figure out why it is not working.
I have followed many of the great motivational speakers like Tony Robbins, Byron Katie, John C. Maxwell, Stephen Covey, the list goes on and on. What I have found is that all their information works if you are just are able focus and not listen to your negative ego. The Negative Ego will tell you it does not work, it is way too hard, you are not seeing success so it does not work, it is taking too long to see results. All this negative thinking hinders you from your success. Plus you are not doing it for you, it is to prove something to false ideal vs achieving success for you. Setting out an action plan that really works.
I had to first work on myself to really get down my core needs and wants to find out who I was as a person. What I really needed to be me and what I really wanted in my life and set the foundation. This is what I call finding your Core Values and Legacy. This foundation is what I used to set my goals for me to achieve so I was able to live my Legacy.
Most of us including me before I learned this key point, I was setting goals that were not aligned with me. They were material goals that I really did not want to work for or want in my life. When I really figured out what I was willing to do and what my core values where success was easy because I enjoyed it.
Remember if you want to achieve success you have to first look after You and build that strong foundation before you can start achieving your dreams.
