Setting Yourself Up for Success in the Long Game

On Monday I talked about Endurance and Resilience on my Million Dollar Monday Show. If you missed that, join my Feel Like a Million Facebook community – that’s where I go live every week and you’ll find all past episodes of the show!

I like to stick to a theme each week so this week we’re going to dive a bit deeper into how you can set yourself up for success in the long game.

People look at the success of others and think that it happened overnight. They forget that there is usually a whole bunch of work that went into that success that might have taken years to achieve.

If you want to see success in your life, you need to prepare yourself for the long haul. Success isn’t for quitters.

Think of it this way: when a runner decides they want to run a marathon, they don’t go out and run it the next day. They work up to it with training! We need to do this too in our life and business and here are three ways you can start today.

Be consistent. Consistency is key. You need to know your goal and then every day you have to show up. Be consistent and make it part of your routine and you’ll notice changes start to happen.

Do a little bit more each day. Don’t try to be the best in just one day. Instead, focus on doing a little bit more than you did the day before. Build up to the big success by giving it your best every day.

Be patient. The key to endurance is that you have the patience to see it through on the tough days because you know it will lead to success in the end. If you don’t have patience, it will be easy to give up and move on to something else. Don’t be impatient! Keep working at it, keep building your endurance and you will see results.

I thought this quote was the perfect reminder for today: “A man on a thousand mile walk has to say to himself every morning, ‘Today I’m going to cover twenty-five miles and then rest up and sleep.”  – Leo Tolstoy

I hope your journey today is a good one and that tomorrow will be even better!

Think of what you can be doing today to get your “twenty-five miles” in towards that 1000 mile goal. Choose a few steps you can take that will get you closer to your goal that you know you can achieve today. Then, go do them!
