In this episode, Dawnjuan, discusses ways to obtain sustainable success. She also shares her thoughts on some things that you shouldn't do to keep you on track. Have a Spirit of Gratitude. It’s okay to want more and strive to be better, however, make sure that you are taking a moment to acknowledge where you are and how far you’ve come. Be thankful for the small wins and small successes on your journey.
Let Positivity beat Negativity. If you are doubting or having negative thoughts about your business or career, yourself, or how things are going, try to replace them with just the opposite. Take a moment to focus on all of the positive things you have going. Surely, there is something that is going better than it did last month. Or you have something that has improved. Even if you failed at something, consider that that a lesson learn and take that lesson for the next time you tackle that task.
Believe it’s Possible. You have to believe in yourself and know that you are great. If you don’t, no one else will. Don’t doubt that you are possible and that what you are trying to do is possible. Take a stand for what you want and believe that you are capable of being successful.
Make a Plan. Make sure you have a vision and a plan. You need to have a goal to march to and actionable steps that will get you there. Take some time to understand what it will take you to get to what you want. Figure out how much effort it will take and start working towards your goal. Be intentional with your actions. Learn to be productive (not just busy). Set a deadline so that you have a timeframe. Figure out how you will measure success, please don’t do this by comparing yourself to what someone else is doing or has done. Define what success means to you. If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.
Give yourself Grace. If you are trying something new in your career or life know that it may NOT be easy. Especially in the beginning stages when you are just getting off the ground. It’s going to take lots of hard work, consistency and perseverance. It’s not easy, however, if you want it you can have it. It’s definitely doable. Give yourself grace and be patient with yourself.
