ÂWhen people set big New Years Resolutions, their intention is good but the outcome is often lacking,Â says Stacey Mayo, renowned career expert and founder of the Center for Balanced Living. ÂThat is because their biggest dreams require them to stretch beyond their comfort zones; to do things theyÂve never done before. And there is a reason it is called a comfort zone. People prefer to do what they already know how to do. It is just more comfortable.Â
Mayo, who has supported thousands of people in making their dreams a reality, is author of I Can't Believe I Get Paid To Do This!, a book that shares insights into the experiences of millionaires and other remarkable people who have achieved high levels of success. Her conversations revealed the following strategies to start off the New Year on the right path and go beyond your comfort zone:
Create Wealth in Alignment With Your Passions: Why Be Rich and Miserable When You Can Be Rich and Happy?
It is important to focus on what you are passionate about first and then find a way to make money at it. Get in touch with your heart first, otherwise, the left side of your brain (the logical side) will rule out perfectly good ideas without having explored them.
- Honor Numero Uno: Design Your Life Around Your Priorities
Many people try to fit their dreams into their life and complain there are not enough hours in the day to make it happen. If you want your dream to become a reality, make it a priority. Otherwise, it will never be more than a pipedream.
Visualize Every Step of Your Dream and Watch the Magic Unfold
The muscle movement that helps us physically take action in our lives begins in the mind. That is why all great golfers, tennis players, basketball players, etc. visualize themselves making a shot beforehand. An experiment conducted by Alan Richardson, an Australian psychologist, found 23 percent performance improvement among subjects who visualized every day for 20 days.
Laser in On One Idea, Business or Income Stream at a Time
One of the mistakes people make is diversifying too quickly. This is true whether you are trying to build multiple streams of income or are just working on several different ideas at one time. The key is getting the first stream or idea up and running, producing good revenue, and having systems in place so it will keep running without you before going on to the next unrelated stream.
Shorten Your Learning Curve by Learning From The Best
You can learn from the people who are barely getting by, from those who are doing fairly well or from those at the top of the heap. Talk to people who are already successful and find out how they did it.
Why reinvent the wheel when someone else already did a great job of creating it?
These five principles were excerpted from the 26 proven strategies in MayoÂs book, I CanÂt Believe I Get Paid To Do This!: Remarkable People Reveal 26 Proven Strategies For Making Your Dreams a Reality, which is available at http://www.IGetPaidToDoThis.com.
