Success is never a mystery. Just about everything has been gone through and overcome.
It may be new to us…but it’s not new.
A great first step is to embrace the two previous sentences.
You need something? You want something? Something happened?
Good, Bad, or other…the reality is “Something must be done”.
Where do you start ?
Start Here: What do you want to happen? Get really clear on this.
What specific results are you COMMITTED to ACHIEVING?
The details of how will come. For now just decide on the outcome.
IE: “With full recovery in my left leg, I will be able to play with my kids, walk with my wife, help out at community events and swim at the lake.”
Next: Define reality: Who are you? Example: “I am 49 years old, a Husband, Father, Runner, Traveler, Heart for helping others, etc” (Being clear about you makes it easy to find others like you).
Next Be Honest : What is Happening? Example: “I broke my leg in a car accident and the doctor says I won’t be able to run again or walk without discomfort.”
Next Be Specific: How am I going to pay for this? “This is a real hardship on my family. I need to raise money. How am I going to rehab and condition myself to retain my health and activity?”
Now: Search! Search for the people who are like you and have had an accident like you and have achieved the results you want. They are out there.
Google, Facebook, etc… Search them out. They can be anywhere…they don’t have to live by you. Email them, call them, or skype them. Tell them your story. Listen to their story.
Ask them Questions:
1-How did they feel?
2-How did they get going? How did they think and how did they stay positive?
3-How did they rehab? Who helped them?
4-How did they pay for all the bills?
5-Why do they think they were successful?
6-What mistakes did they make, that you could avoid ?
Ask them if they will be part of your “Victory Team”, your 5-7 friends who are totally in this with you and are really encouraging.
Most people who have overcome things, are the first ones to join in and champion others. At the very least could you check in with them and talk.
This is simple…yet it really works.
