11 Ways To Fast Track Your Success And Achieve Your Big Goals Sooner

Have you ever wanted to fast track your success and achieve your big goals sooner?

I’m sure we have all wanted to do this at one time or another. The challenge is that life can get in the way, and other people’s priorities become our own. Unless you focus on what’s important to you first, you’ll get lost in a web of things that have no significance in your life.

The second part of fast tracking your success is that your big goals are hard to achieve, so it becomes easier to spend your time on the little things that ultimately don’t make you feel fulfilled.

“It’s time to go even bigger than before and stop looking for the easy way out”

The 11 ways to fast track your success are:

1. Set bigger goals

The quickest way to fast tack your success is to set bigger goals. If you feel like you are nowhere near where you want to be then it’s probably because your goals are just too small.

If you have committed to losing 2kg, then make it 10kg. If you have given yourself six months to leave your job, then make it three months.

The bigger your goals, the bigger the rewards are for achieving them. Small goals won’t get you out of bed in the morning; big goals will.

2. Be even bolder

However you have currently played the game of success until now, you need to be even bolder if you want to fast track your success. The speed of your success will only increase when you make bolder decisions that require guts and determination.

When you start to become bolder, you give more of yourself, and your true personality starts to shine. Forget about what people think and do a few bold acts every week. Then, go to your laptop, turn it on, open your email account, and send me a thank you note for getting your ass into action!

3. Do the most fearful task first

Boy oh boy, it’s tough to break through fear, isn’t it? That’s why you have to face your fears even sooner than you thought.

We all talk about fear and how we will conquer it tomorrow when we’re ready and have had some comfort food to prepare us for the pain. Fear is going to cause you lot’s of pain because you are going to fall over on your ass plenty of times.

What will fast track your success is when you can fall on your face (not your ass) and still get back up with a smile. That’s what you need to do!

“Every successful person you admire has slept in the same bed as fear and knows their friend fear intimately” – Tim Denning

4. Read more autobiographies

Increasing the speed of your success becomes possible when you surround yourself with people who are achieving success already. Now, if you don’t live in the Hollywood Hills then chances are your next door neighbor is not Johnny Deep. Just because you don’t live in Hollywood, doesn’t mean you can’t be surrounded by global superstars.

Fire up your Kindle app, and download books by Michael Jordan, Andre Agassi, Oprah Winfrey, Ariana Huffington, Warren Buffet, etc. These cats will give you all the strategies you need. Aim to read one book like this a week and you’ll get to where you want to go much quicker. Make it two books a week if you’re an over-achiever (this should be everyone reading Addicted2Success).

5. Build a team rather than go it alone

Don’t fall for the delusion that you can do it all yourself. If you attend any business seminar they will tell you pretty quickly that the problem with your business is you. The problem with your business is there is no team to take the heavy load off you.

If you want to fast track your success then you need a team around you. I know what you’re thinking, Tim I can’t afford to hire people! You have got to be more creative than that guys! Hire an intern, use a freelancer, trade services with someone, start a Facebook group and hire your raving fans, just do something!

6. Refocus your time

I’m not sure about everyone else, but I can get lost on my iPhone apps for freakin hours man! Our attention has become like a ping-pong ball and app developers, and advertisers love it. They always wanted our attention, and now they have the ultimate Jedi mind tricks to get it.

That’s why you have to be ten times more disciplined and refocus your time. Start looking at how much time you waste on useless crap that doesn’t give you the speed of success you’re looking for. Take back your life and start time blocking important tasks.

Once you get your time back, you’ll begin getting the level of results you want at a much faster pace.

7. Create content that serves a purpose

What the heck has creating content got to do with fast tracking your success? Everything. We’ve said on Addicted2Success continually that your success is about what you have to give. Entrepreneurship is not about you!

Whatever your passion is and whatever big goals you are chasing, you must be giving content away. It’s the simplest form of giving, and it’s what will add people to your mission. Remember what I said before? You can’t do this whole success thing alone!

As you build a small audience you can then single out the raving fans, approach them via email, and get them to become a part of your vision. On your own you’ll struggle, with a team of three people, you’ll triple your speed of success. This is basic maths guys!

8. Dedicate yourself to one social media platform

I just told you that you need to create free content because that’s how you can give something to the world. Your distribution channel for content is social media. Here’s where everyone stuffs it up though; we all try to be on every platform 24/7.

This strategy will guarantee you of failure. To fast track your success you’ll need to focus on one platform for at least 12 months. This website is proof of that. Addicted2Success was built 100% on Twitter and no other platform to begin with.

Imagine if Joel Brown and his one-man band at the time tried to be on every platform; he would have given up, and you wouldn’t be reading the words I am typing.

9. Make your bed as soon as you wake up

This post already sounds like a mad rant and this point must seem left of field – it’s not. To fast track your success you are going to need to make your mind think you are making progress. Making your bed first thing in the morning helps give you your first win of the day.

All your friends probably don’t bother to make their bed first thing, and that’s why their days spiral out of control so quickly.

10. Do five minutes of a new habit you want to create

Success is built on habits. Fast tracking your success starts with creating new habits that become the building blocks for where you want to go. Don’t make all of this success stuff rocket science. Pick a new habit, start today, and do it for five minutes.

Do not do this new habit for even a second more than five minutes otherwise, you will ruin the habit and not stick at it. After say 2-4 weeks, then consider increasing the time you spend on this new habit. If you’re like me and struggle with even five minutes, try two minutes.

Do two minutes of your new habit every day and you’ll feel like Rocky Balboa. These are the Jedi mind tricks everyone to fast track your success!

11. Simplify everything

Whatever you’re currently doing, it’s too complicated. That’s the harsh truth.

Stop over complicating everything and remove 70% of the skills you think you need. Our lives are over complicated by people that benefit from the over complication. If everything was shown as being simple then there would be no barrier to entry.

Professionals love overcomplicating things so that you will hopefully pay them to take care of these tasks for you. Go against the grain and start simplifying everything you do. Then, share this information with other people and watch your level of success increase ten fold.

    Hey Tim, love your post so much.
    I didn’t know that creating content is in the list above, but it is true that it is a great way to giving back.
    Either through education or inspiration, content helps and makes people’s lives better.
    By the way, I’m reading the story of Zappos from Tony Hsieh, great book. 🙂

5 Things You Can Learn From The 5am Club by Robin Sharma

Avatar

Published

on

It has been said by Robin Sharma, “5 AM is the time of least distraction, highest human glory, and greatest peace.” This also happens to be the central idea or the core value he has discussed in his book, ‘The 5 Am Club.’ Speaking of early mornings, at what time do you wake up? Are you annoyed by the fact that you wake up on the edge of time and then rush to work in haste? 

The life lessons put forth by The 5 AM Club are exactly the learning and motivation you need to challenge your complacency. In your race against time, you may not have the time to read this fabulous book. So, we have summed up the key book’s takeaways for your convenience.

1. The vigor of waking up early

This is what the book’s most fundamental advice to everyone is. Waking up at 5 am every day can work wonders to avert failures and make success a natural habit. When we wake up at 5 am, we have more time on our hands than others. Besides, this is when we have minimum interruptions and maximum powerfulness of the mind. 

To add, the early morning peace is priceless! You can schedule your most important tasks of the day between 5am, and 8am. This book teaches us in the simplest way, how we can train our mind and strengthen it to deliver the highest productivity by waking up early. This energy that you have when you wake up in the morning and the few additional hours in your day are what serve as perfect ingredients for success.

“The secret to productivity is simplicity.” – Robin Sharma

2. The power of finding the right balance in life

The book talks about a precious lesson of finding the right balance within. We often talk about the need for mindfulness and achieving the right mindset to perceive things. But this book goes a few steps ahead of our usual approach to life. It highlights the vitality of mindset and introduces the concepts of heartset, healthset, and soulset.

These terms may seem new, but they are self-explanatory. The idea of heartset endorses the essentialness of emotional stability and well-being. Next, the perspective of healthset indicates the need to look after physical health. At last, soulset is an attribute of spirituality. As explained in this book, success prospects can be enhanced big time by achieving the right balance between these internal virtues.

3. The iconic 20/20/20 modus operandi

What is the first thing you will do if you start waking up at 5 am every day? Did you ever spare a thought about it? This book has the answer to this question, and you will be convinced that it is a great way to begin your day!. The author suggests that you should split the first hour of the day into three equal parts of 20 minutes each.

In the first 20 minutes of the day, you should prioritize your physical fitness and exercise. In the next 20 minutes, you should energize your soul and spirit via self-reflection and soulful meditation. This will prepare you for the rest of the day and will enable you to bolster your commitment and focus. In the last 20 minutes of the first hour, you should read and learn. But what are you going to read about in those 20 minutes? Read about successful people and their inspiring journeys to the pinnacle of success.

4. The significance of a proper sleep schedule

In this book, there is a mention of ‘a ferocious global sleep recession’, which is intriguing and enlightening. It hints at the state of sleep deprivation that this world is sinking into gradually. We often associate success and hard work with the notion of staying up all night and testing our endurance beyond limits. But that is not the right approach to accomplishing success, or rather, it is a flawed methodology.

Sometimes even if we do not have any critical work, we keep whiling our night time on social media or television. What are we gaining from it is the real question, and I am afraid the answer is nothing! We learn from this book that it is critical to look after your sleep cycle and start your day at 5 am afresh. Sleep and rest are indispensable for mental and physical well-being, or your productivity will decline.

“If you want to have the results only 5% have, you must be willing to do and think like only 5% do and think.” – Robin Sharma

5. The art of evolving

The book sheds light on the need to be spiritual and master self-reflection. However, do you realize the purpose that the routine of reflection each morning serves? The idea is to keep learning, keep reflecting on the mistakes and keep evolution an ongoing process. You should evolve every day and strive to be a better version of yourself every day. So, one of your primary goals after waking up should be to reflect on your actions and missed opportunities of the previous day.

To recapitulate, The 5 AM Club is a must-read book if you are a passionate reader. It has the prowess and charm to refurbish your perception of life altogether. Even if you cannot read the book for some reason, make sure you incorporate the above key takeaways into your life. By starting your day at 5 am, you can rediscover your lost soul and enthusiasm, and you would not have complaints to make about the lack of time. If you can own your mornings, you can go places on the ladder of success, for excuses are only for those who are not committed to their goals.
