“Be do be do be”
This last strategy is the simplest and can have the greatest impact on creating successful outcomes on a regular basis.
I read a book called “Think Happy” by Karen Salmansohn and she describes how Frank Sinatra got it wrong when he sang “ Do be do be do” because the “be” should always come before the “do”.
Put simply, for you to create the outcomes you want you to have to focus on the being first then the doing.
For example, you might be thinking I want to start a Travel clinic but to achieve this goal you have to be organized, confident and enthusiastic.
So pause before you write your daily “to do” list and write a “to be” list first which includes the qualities you want to develop eg to be confident or to be calmer or to be kinder. As Karen Salamansohn says “to grow your success, grow who you are”.
