Remember the 7 F's

As you know by now if you've been following these daily e-mails, I'm an avid reader. 

I never use to be, I actually hated reading until after college. 

Weird how things change.

Now I read for 45-60 minutes every single morning, and it's where I get a lot of my inspiration. 

Typically I'll read something, take a note on it, and a couple days or weeks later it becomes a topic of one of these e-mails. 

However this morning I was reading The Wow Book, 52 Ways to Motivate Your Mind, Inspire Your Soul & Create WOW in Your Life by my friend Todd Durkin. I read something that I just had to share. 

Todd shared a chapter on how to get past failures and get back on the "success train."

In it, he shared the 7 F's from his mentor Wayne Cotton...

Fear, Frustration, and Failure are all overcome by Faith, Focus, Forward Motion and Follow Through.

Let that marinate for a second...

Fear, Frustration, and Failure are all overcome by Faith, Focus, Forward Motion and Follow Through.

Pretty good, huh?

Faith can mean many things, but he talks about faith meaning BELIEVE...

Faith in yourself...

Faith in your career...

Faith in your future potential...

Focus

Focus on what really matters...

Focus on making every move count...

Focus on the 20% that generate 80% of your results...

Forward motion

Identify priorities each year...

Take action on the key items for the day...

Take a tiny little action that starts a chain reaction

Follow Through

It is getting things done...

Wrapping a ribbon around a project...

Celebrate victories...

I fell in love with this concept instantly. 

Maybe one of the F's resonates with you.

1% better, right?

Dedicated to Your Success,
