1 Simple Thing Action:

Learn the Personal Success Equation:  (P + T) x A x A + F. Get together with a couple of your good friends and walk through the equation with them because they can help you identify your strengths and weaknesses and your passions and your talents. If you feel you are stagnant consider going to a new networking group that will give you new energy, new ideas and opportunities, and recharge your burning desire that will help you to keep on going.

Mentioned In Episode:

Personal Success Equation = (P + T) x A x A + F
[(Passion + Talent) x Association x Action] + Faith = Personal Success

P = Passion
What are you passionate about? What makes your heart sing? Think about the times in your life when you have been most fulfilled. What were you doing? Find your “Why” – do what you love, love what you do.

T = Talent
In what activities do you excel? What are your talents? Are you a great communicator? Do you have a knack for numbers? Can you cook or draw? Combine your passion and your talent.

A = Association
Association refers to the people and organizations you surround yourself with. Think of the five people you spend the most time with. Do they support you? Are they successful? Do you need to change your associations? Collaboration not competition. Having the right people around you. Controlling your environment. Creating an environment of being able to accelerate your growth.

A = Action
Making a change requires taking action. Are you really committed to improving your life, or are you just attracted to the possibility? You’ve got to go the extra mile you’ve got to take action. You have to work towards achieving your goal.

F = Faith
This is often the toughest part of the equation to master. Having faith means believing in yourself and your idea despite the obstacles you may encounter. Converting fear into faith. Have faith in yourself, have faith in what you are doing, which helps you create that great success.
