Can you really create real results and succeed fast? In short, the answer is yes. As long as you follow the right method and do it in the right way, you can produce extraordinary success as quickly as possible.

Richard L. Evans once said, “Your direction is more important than your speed.” And he is absolutely right. First, you don’t want to be chasing the wrong thing. You don’t want to pour all your effort to climb the ladder only to discover that you’re leaning against the wrong wall.

Second, you want to make sure your hard work is going to be fruitful. For example, if your goal is to see the sunrise, there is no point to keep running west. No matter how fast you run, you will only get to the wrong place.

Therefore, you want to make sure you use the right approach to achieving the success you want. And here are the 3 powerful methods to help you create the results you want and get you the success you want in the shortest time possible.

1. Heighten Your Self-Awareness

This is one of the most important keys to success. If you are not aware of what you want or what you did wrong, you will never get the success you desire. Think about it, if you are a basketball player and you want to become the best on your team, but you aren’t aware that your shooting skill needs improvement, guess what will happen? You can’t improve and you will fail at your goal.

Therefore, you must be aware of what you want, how to get it, and how to improve yourself to do better. Most people are sleepwalking in their jobs. They have no idea what they want out of life. They repeat what they do day-in and day-out, feeling stuck, stressed, and getting nowhere.

You can’t fix what you don’t know is broken. Hence, the first step to creating outstanding success is to be aware of it. Be aware of what you want, how to get it, and where you need to improve to achieve the results you want.

This is why you need to have a vision, set goals, review them daily, and then keep yourself in the loop until you achieve the success you desire.

Most people are not successful because they are not aware of their current situation and they don’t actively chase the results they want. They fall into the rat race and do what most people are doing. Raise your self-awareness for what you want and pay attention to the results you desire. Understand what you want, how to get it, and what must you improve to attain it.

“Self-awareness is one of the rarest of human commodities. I don’t mean self-consciousness where you’re limiting and evaluating yourself. I mean being aware of your own patterns.” – Tony Robbins

2. Apply the 90-90-1 Rule

Next, apply the 90-90-1 Rule in your everyday life. I first learned about this rule from Robin Sharma, the best-selling author of The 5 AM Club. This rule is simple to understand, but not easy to stick to it. Here’s what you need to do. For the next 90 days, spend your first 90 minutes working on your number one priority.

Studies have shown that to form a new habit, you need to repeat it for at least 66 days. And if you can work on your goals for the next 90 days, you will be able to transform your action into habits.

Plus, you want to spend the first 90 minutes of each day working on your number one priority or project. You see, we’re living in a distracting world. And one great way to get rid of all the distractions is by working on our priority first thing in the morning.

When you follow this rule, you get to work on your most important thing first thing in the morning. This will make sure you are putting in the effort to create real results. If something is important for you, you want to make sure you work on it first thing. Hence, schedule your time and work on your goal in the first 90 minutes of your day.

Next, you want to make sure to only focus on just one goal or project. You don’t want to spread yourself too thin by focusing on too many goals. If you are committed to creating extraordinary success, put your focus on just one thing, and work on it relentlessly.

If you follow the 90-90-1 Rule and you work on your number one priority for 90 minutes for 90 days straight, trust me, you will see significant results by the end of the 3 months.

3. Commit to Never-Ending Improvement

The third method to create explosive growth fast is to commit to never-ending improvement. The only way you can continue to do better and make progress is through improvement. If you continue to do what you do, you will continue to get the same old results. Unless you change the way you do things, nothing is going to change.

As I mentioned above, you want to work hard and at the same time, you want to also make sure your hard work will pay off. You don’t want to be working on something that isn’t going to get you the result you want.

“You’ve got to have rules to live by, and one of mine is always say yes. Put yourself in danger of something amazing happening to you.” – Tom Bilyeu

For example, if you want to lose weight, walking 10,000 steps a day may be a plan of yours, but if you only rely solely on walking, it may not be the most effective way. Thus, you need to identify your approach and understand how to get the most out of your strategy and what you do.

This is why you must consistently learn and improve. And the easiest way is through learning from others. Study how others who have done it before and replicate their success. You can’t learn everything on your own, you need to leverage on other people’s experiences.

It is possible to achieve amazing results and create the success you desire in life, fast. But you must do the right thing and work hard on the right plan. Use these 3 powerful methods and you will be able to achieve the extraordinary success you seek.

How Your Friends Determine Whether You Succeed or Not

Can anyone do without having friends? We all have our friends, we share ideas with them, talk together, have fun, and fight. Yes, that’s the baseline of friendship. But, do you know that aside from you, your friends can determine whether you achieve success or not?

There are two things in friendship which are the ability to ”love” and the ability to “influence”. This means you are loved and you are influenced. How do your friends affect your success in life? How are they one of the biggest deciding factors of your success? Let’s find out.

What type of friends do you keep? 

First, what type of friends do you keep? Who do you call your best friend? There are two different kinds of friends, good friends, and bad ones. A lot of people have lost their pathway to success and some have also found their road to success all because of the friends they keep, the people they mingle with. 

Who is your best friend? Answer carefully. Having a best friend means you find each other compatible and understanding. Analyze who your best friend is. If your best friend has not motivated you to do something positive, if who you call your bestie has never given you positive advice, lastly if your best friend has never informed and advised you on your shortcomings, then you don’t have a best friend.

This quote tells us “birds of the same feather flock together”. Countless people have changed from their good nature into a bad one all because of friends. One thing to note is, “negative people move with negative aura”. If your best friend is filled with negativity inside-out then you will surely be affected by his/her negative aura.

They influence your success with positivity or negativity 

The friends you keep can either influence you with positivity or negativity because your friends have the power to change your kind of person completely. 

This is how your friends influence you:

  1. They influence you indirectly with what they do
  2. They influence you directly by teaching and giving you advice 

Yes, that is how they influence you. For instance, you watch a movie and you like the way the actor walks. The question is if you truly like the way the actor walks, won’t you try to imitate the actor? Of course, you will.

Just the way you imitate the actor is the same way your friends can influence you with their character. However, the funny part is, they don’t have to teach you to do things like them. You just find yourself imitating and copying them gradually.

An important question to ask is, are you imitating a good friend or a bad one? If you imitate a good friend then you will be good, but if you imitate a bad person, you will surely become a bad person.

Everyone wants to succeed, a good friend will always teach, enlighten, and motivate you for success. A bad friend will only motivate you to do evil things (smoking, drinking, fight, envy,).

And you should know that things like that are a great enemy of success and even of God. So, if you have these bad elements in your life, how will you achieve success? There is no way!

And also, they can teach and advise you directly. But, what do your friends teach you? When you ask them for advice do they inspire you positively or teach you the bad stuff.? A lot of people have regretted lifelong decisions just by listening to the advice of friends. 

The company you keep has the power to influence and change you. Never forget that a positive influence will teach, motivate, and brush you up for success. While a negative influence will inspire you to become a bad person, change your good nature, and leave you with regrets in the end.

Here Are 4 Reasons Why You Should Have a Podcast, Youtube Channel or Online Show

why you should have a podcast

Confidence comes from a place of strong understanding of self. After close to three years on radio, I’ve grown from a shy introvert to a shy introvert with an extrovert persona. When the mic is turned on, I can channel a version of myself that some say is attractive, strong, and of course, confident but it wasn’t always this way.

What I want to share with you is what I discovered on this journey into broadcast that you can apply to your life, your ventures, and your personal development. This doesn’t require any fancy gear. It does require a leap of faith on your part because once you go down the road of media; it can change your life.

1. Perceived Expertise

When you go to a doctor, you expect their knowledge will guide them to a solution to your problems. When you have a show, you become your listeners’ doctor. For all the multiple thousands, maybe millions, of YouTube channels, podcasts, and user-created content in the world, each person that gets behind a mic takes a position on their passion, their opinions, and their themes.

They challenge the status quo for the benefit of their listeners in hopes to entertain and educate. With consistency on your side, those fans place you on a platform and give you permission to influence them.

2. Global Acknowledgement

One of the benefits to increasing confidence is when you receive thank you notes from people you may never meet. The feeling of enriching someone’s life from halfway around the globe, provides validation you’re enhancing someone else’s life with your wisdom and your wit.

The very first time I was told I was making a difference in someone’s life in a country other than my own, I felt like I caused massive impact that transcends my circle of influence. When you experience just how much you can cause impact and it comes back to you, it’ll change your worldview.

“Be grateful for what you have and stop complaining – it bores everybody else, does you no good, and doesn’t solve any problems.” – Zig Ziglar

3. Backed By Numbers

One of the most exciting ways to measure success is to quantify your growth. It’s not enough to just broadcast. Having subscribers and downloads helps to know, numerically, how well you’re doing. Word of caution. This can be a way to set yourself up for distress because of number envy but if you understand what the numbers mean; you can control the narrative of the numbers.

The major number that makes most people smile is 10,000. I’d advise it to be 1. Here’s why. As you grow in your industry, so does your reach. If you learned that the one person that subscribed totally changed for the better because of you, wouldn’t that be worth the effort?

4. Effective Communication

While it’s not talked about much, having a show is documentation. You create a dynamic account of your life, your industry, and the pulse on what’s important simply by having a show. When you find a channel to improve your communication skills, you demand attention and people will listen to you. You become more trusted as a leader and people will follow you once they believe you can lead them to their wants and needs.

“To effectively communicate, we must realize that we are all different in the way we perceive the world and use this understanding as a guide to our communication with others.” – Tony Robbins

These insights have helped many people become leaders and, ultimately, move others to their best selves. It’s worked for me and I hope it works for you. At the end of the day, it’s all about showing up and showing out.
