Whats the Secret of Your Sucess?
I'm going to begin this article by sharing a little secret with you?
'If you want to experience success as an entrepreneur you must first experience entrepreneurial success.'
So what exactly do I mean by this?
Success is never an accident. To reach the pinnacle in any field of endeavour you must have the ability to visualise, touch, taste, hear and smell your own success.
Can you imagine an Olympic champion standing on the podium totally surprised to pick up their gold medal? There's absolutely no way! Chances are they've imagined exactly what it would feel like to wear their medal, wave at their adoring fans and sing along to their national anthem, thousands of times before it actually became a reality.
You have to see it first!
It was Vincent Van Gogh who said, 'I dream my paintings and then I paint my dreams.' As an entrepreneur you have to be able to see your business as a success before it can become successful.
Once you have an understanding of your business concept, visualise the happy customers that you will serve, the business partners that you will collaborate with and most importantly the streams of money that will flow into your company's bank account for work well done.
What will having a successful business mean to you?
As an extension of this visualisation exercise also consider what having a successful business will mean to you personally. For me, a successful coaching business means being able to do the work that I love, surrounding myself with inspirational people and having the opportunity to share my own unique talents.
So what does success in business mean to you? Your definition can actually span many different levels. Consider what it will mean to you financially, emotionally, spiritually, mentally and physically.
Once you have your list, ask yourself "what can I do to start experiencing those states of being immediately?"
Celebrate Your Success!
Celebrating your success is a crucial part of attracting even more success.
When I launched my two coaching newsletters, I had a vision that I wanted them to inspire people all over the world. My subscriber list begun with one subscriber in one country (in other words, me!). Every time someone from a new country signed up I would celebrate the achievement by either clapping my hands, clicking my fingers and on the odd occasion by giving myself a high five (embarrassing I know!). I also follow a similar process every time I sign up a new client.
A simple process of acknowledging and celebrating your success is a very important part of attracting increasing levels of prosperity and good fortune into your life and business.
So what is the secret of your entrepreneurial success?
Imagine yourself sitting in a chair being interviewed by a television journalist five years from now. You breeze through her pleasant enquiry until she asks you the final killer question "So tell me, what is the secret of your entrepreneurial success?"
This will be your cue to take a big deep breath, rock back in your chair, throw you arms behind your head as you remark 'Well I'm flattered that you asked. The secret of my entrepreneurial success is .................. (and you can take it away from here!)
When you are crafting your response be sure to highlight your unique talents, your extraordinary ability to overcome any adversity and most importantly your capacity to celebrate every little success along the way!

Success Takes Practice
As a speaker and trainer, people often approach me after one of my programs to tell me how excited they are about the strategies they have learned and how they plan to put these ideas into action. When I connect with these people later on and ask how the techniques are working for them, I usually get answers such as "I really planned to use them but then things got so crazy that I never had the chance." or "I tried them once and wasn't successful so I gave up."
Three Keys to Greatness
Ten years ago I went into the studio and recorded a 56-minute video for teenagers called "Three Keys To Greatness." Although my focus was for teenagers, the principles I shared certainly apply to adults as well.
The Secret Key (Part 1): An Overwhelming Purpose
Imagine that you are in a dimly-lit room. You don't know how you ended up here, but you are now in it and you are trying to find your way out of it. You see a door to your right side and walk up towards it. Right before your eyes, the top corner of the door starts to get blurry and you can see something like letters starting to materialize. It's not clear at first, but suddenly the words are sharp and vivid and it reads "SUCCESS". Pushing the door open doesn't work and it feels like it's stuck. You try to push it some more and it still doesn't open. You start to move your hands on the door to see whether there is a knob that you can turn. As you are feeling your way on the door, you realize that there is a lock. Success is something you truly want to achieve and it's right there on the other side of the door. You now need the key. Panic sets in and you frantically crawl around the room looking for the key to this door you need to get through. After what seems like hours you sit down in the corner mourning your misfortune. Reaching into your pocket for your handkerchief to wipe off your sweat, you feel something in your pocket. It feels like a?.. Yes! Yes! It is the key! You are now secure and the only thing between you and success is the action that you need to take to put the key into the lock, turning it, and then walking through the door.

Tracking Success With A Goal Tracking Chart
Creating a goal tracking chart is as simple as drawing a basic grid or table. Create as many vertical columns as you have goals to include, and include a horizontal row for every sub-goal or milestone you wish to divide your goals into, plus one row on top for your "Finish By" date and one row below for your goal heading or title. [Hint: Creating a goal tracking chart poster-sized on inexpensive and brightly colored poster board ensures visibility and accountability!]
