Steps to Career Success

Career success doesn’t just happen. It is the result of purposeful, methodical drive toward achieving your full potential. Your potential is unlimited and you can achieve your career expectations if you go about realizing your goals the right way. The main ingredient to achieving your career goals is to acknowledge that you’re in charge of your own destiny.

1. Setting clear, specific, written goals for self. Remember… be realistic.

  • Write down a description of the type of life you would like.
  • How much do you want to earn?
  • What do you want to do?
  • What kind of people do you want to work with?
  • What is your definition of success?
  • Write down obstacles that stand between you and your goal.
  • What can you do to start moving toward the realization of your goal?

2. Take full responsibility for your life and your future. Don’t make excuses or blame others for your shortcomings.

3. Become solution oriented. Look for better and faster ways of doing things. Ask yourself what you can do to move you towards your career goal.

4. Communicate your goals and objectives to others who may be able to help you. Ask for advice from successful people. Almost always they’ll be happy to oblige.

5. Make friends with successful people or people you admire. Stay away from negative losers. They’ll just drag you down with them.

6. Make excellence your motto. No matter what you do – do the best quality job you can.

7. Commit yourself to ongoing personal development. You can achieve your goals more easily if you develop yourself through reading, attending, workshops, courses and seminars.

Iron Clad Rule

Motivation is essential to a person no matter what field he is in or what he wants to do.

Ali Zamany, the Regional Distributor at my office, Energy Savings B.C., gave the office a motivational speech. The content was constructed by Pearson MacDonald, the founder of Energy Savings B.C.

————————-

The late Pearson MacDonald was pioneer in developing the direct sales model in use at the Energy Savings Group. He worked closely with the founders Rebecca MacDonald and Brennen Mulcahy, who have built the company into one of the largest energy marketers in North America. The foundation for their success can be partially attributed to Pearson’s Iron Clad Rules and to the belief in a positive winning attitude.

  1. 1. “A quitter never wins and a winner never quits.”
  • Anything worth having is worth fighting for – so fight for it!
  1. 2. “Work your plan and plan your work.”
  • Know what day, what time and where you are going to work. You are your own boss and therefore you must manage yourself and/or your family responsibly
  1. 3. “Action makes you positive; inaction makes you negative.”
  • Not going to work makes you feel guilty; however, as soon as you start walking and talking you’ll feel excellent
  1. 4. “Practice, Practice, Practice.”
  • One thing you always hear about top sales performers is that they always practice more and try harder
  1. 5. “Momentum is everything!”
  • One you start work, don’t stop for coffee, food, etc. until your day is complete. Once the ball is rolling, don’t stop it.
  1. 6. “Treat a job like a job and a business like a business.”
  • Once at a presentation, do you presentation and leave. Go directly to your next presentation. Do not socialize on the job, your time is too valuable
  1. 7. “You always get exactly what you deserve.”
  • If you provide a lot of service, you will receive a lot of reward. If you provide little service, you will receive little reward.
  1. 8. “Set your goal, write it down and repeat it twenty times a day.”
  • If you have no destination, you will never arrive. Goal setting is a must for success.
  1. 9. “Visualize.”
  • What a human mind can conceive and believe, the human mind can achieve!
  1. 10. “Be an eternal optimist!”
  • People are always telling you what you can’t do, use this as fuel to prove them wrong
  1. 11. “Do it!”
  • Procrastination is your worst enemy. Just go to work!
  1. 12. “Do it right!”
  • Learn from the pros. Choose a role model to achieve top skills and strategies

These values will take  time for a person to require and routinely apply them in working. Even if one practices all these values, one will always have to I.C.A.N. (improving constantly and neverending)!

Trump VIP tickets

Trump VIP tickets

On May 24th, 2009, I attended a seminar by Trump Institute. The speaker was Tim Payne, an associate of Trump. He specializes in real estate investment. He also ignited the fire within me to begin my research and to learn more about real estate foreclosures. 

Over 90% of wealthy people in the world earns their majority of money from real estate investments. Right now, with the global economy at the bottom of the pit, the prices on properties and real estates is at an all time low. The banks are foreclosing more assets than ever in the history. Right now is the perfect timing for me to step into the realm of real enstates. With the help of consultants from the Trump Institute, Iwill be given the right path to walk down with tibs  (real estate insider trading information, completely legal) provided by the consultants, I will be able to have an opportunity to build up a real estate portfolio. Of course, with work, dedication, and good judgement!

My goal by the time  I turn 25 y/o is to have at least $1 million in asset. This also fits Wall Street’s definition of wealth, having a million dollars working for you”. Learn to let the money work for you. You’re the employer, your money is the employee.

Wealthy people have 3 things in common

  1. If want to be wealthy believe it’s possible
    • Faith is moving cause of all action
    • Willing to pretend you’re wealthy before you can be wealthy
    • I’m FUCKEN WEALTHY!!!!!
    • Read “the secret” AGAIN
    • Hang out with people making great money
  1. Two sides to every equation
    • Want to be on the right side!
    • Wealthy people only look on the right side
    • Ex. If own thousands of gas barrels, will think gas price is TO LOW
    • Wealth is just work, the right way
    • Wealth has nothing to do with genetics
  2.         Pull the trigger
  • Make a decision
  • Don’t second guess
  • ¾ of solution to problem is to admit it exist
  • Never been indecisive
  • Never live from pay cheque to pay cheque
  • Ignorance is most expensive commodity on earth
  • Education is the highest priority investments
P.S. Don’t watch CNN (Constantly Negative News)
3 big days are coming up, June 4-6, 2009. I have enrolled in a training by Trump Institute to learn about the process of becoming a real estate investor. 
Currently, I have tapped into 3 type of business that are at their momentum stage. I will be continuously using my greatest effort to make them as profitable as possible during the next 3 months.
  1. Energy Savings Group (the natural gas industry)
  2. Real Estate investment
  3. Market America (e-commerce/direct marketing)
  4. online advertisements

How will I suceed? C.A.N.I.

    Constantly…and…Neverending…Improving!
