4. Have Inspired and Focused Dedication

This isn’t passion. Passion is highly energised, but it is also mostly highly unfocused. Inspiration however, is focused and is the precursor to real directed action. Successful people have decided to win from the outset and have unrelenting inspired and focused dedication to make it happen. They don’t crowd their minds either with myriad goals that confuse the universe and themselves as to what they want and when they want it. They let go of everything, but the one thing they want and they visualise and emotionalise this until they feel its certainty.

As one business woman said to me in Sydney, ‘I am exceptionally energetic. And focused. I love challenges. I love being inspired. But I don’t think unless I have to. ’

They work smart and they work hard. They make use of the opportunities and chances that come their way in that moment with wise consideration - not procrastination. Their time is organised and optimised. They are people that ‘eat their frogs’ and get the bad jobs done first. Once again this sense of time management is not just in regards to money making. Take a surfer off a beach and they will find their way back better than any homing pigeon. They will also get out of bed at the crack of dawn to make the best use of the waves and hone their skills. How many things in your life can make a claim on your time like that?
