Three Ways to Achieve Success IMMEDIATELY

1. Define your own success.
When it comes to success I find it interesting that people are always Googling how to make it big or how to makes loads of money. The only way to be successful under your own terms is to define success for yourself. What does it means to be successful? Does it mean a new position? A new salary? A nice car or a house is a fancy neighborhood? You cannot allow others to define success for you. 

2. Route your own success. 
You have to spell out success and then determine how you are going to get there. You know what it takes to get the things you want in life. Everyone knows that to build wealth you have to save and spend below your means. The reason why we aren't all rich is because everyone is not self disciplined enough to reach the goal. Chart your course so that you have a clear idea of where you are headed. (Simply put create goals and write two or three points as to how you are going to reach them!) 

3. Drive your own success. 

Do it! I know it's easier said than done but the people who become the most successful are the one's who don't just plan but do.

Tips from FLOTUS on Leadership

Our First Lady Michelle Obama has done it again!  Every time she speaks she drops us knowledge to help us reflect our own way of thinking and actions! After watching the Democratic National Convention here is what I took away. 

"He believes when you work hard and you cross the door of opportunity, don't slam it! Don't close the door behind you! You REACH BACK and bring others up! @MichelleObama

1. Leadership is 100% about creating new leaders. If you are at the top and love the feeling of being above your subordinates then your motives for leadership are off. Effective leaders lead because they want to create change, influence others to take action, and work their way to a position to challenge the same in others. 

"Being President doesn't change who you are, it reveals who you are." @MichelleObama

2. Leadership is an internal expression of an inward ability. Leaders shouldn't become someone "new" once they get into their position because leadership is not about position. Leadership is about the ability to influence change on any level. It reveals who you are because it should be who you are. 

"That's the man I see in those quiet moments late at night, hunched over his desk, poring over the letters people have sent him," she said. "I see the concern in his eyes ... and I hear the determination in his voice as he tells me, 'You won't believe what these folks are going through, Michelle . it's not right. We've got to keep working to fix this. We've got so much more to do." She added: "I see how that's what drives Barack Obama every single day."

3. Leadership is about the drive! What fuels you to keep going even in difficult situations? Leaders have to have something to refresh their energy. They frequently revisit the reason for the cause. They hear the voices of the people they are working for and figure out solutions to fix them. Leaders are true problem solvers. 

"In the end, for Barack, these issues aren't political. They're personal," she said.

4. Leaders have values. They add value to the issues they value! Simply put they stand for what they believe in.  It allows authenticity and a personal connection to be made.

When I listen to it I don't only like the songs but the message moves me and reminds me why I'm working. When I start to feel tired I pick the best track and blast it!!

2. Workout. I know what you're thinking but you actually gain energy when you begin to move your muscles.
