The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - LIFESTYLE -

HERE are 21 key suc­cess prin­ci­ples from Can­field’s book, The Suc­cess Prin­ci­ples: How To Get From Where You Are To Where You Want To Be, which the author ex­pounded on at the sem­i­nar:

1. Take 100% re­spon­si­bil­ity for your life and your re­sults.

2. Be clear why you are here (clar­ify your life pur­pose). 3. De­cide what you want. 4. Be­lieve in your­self. 5. Un­leash the power of goal-set­ting – goals must be mea­sur­able and have spe­cific time­lines for achieve­ment.

6. Chunk it down – break down your com­plex tasks into small man­age­able ones and take ac­tion step by step.

7. Re­lease the brakes – form a habit of us­ing af­fir­ma­tions, or pos­i­tive state­ments that af­firm your be­ing in the state of hav­ing al­ready ac­com­plished the goal.

8. Use the power of vi­su­al­i­sa­tion – vi­su­alise all your goals and re­sults, and run through the feel­ing of hav­ing al­ready com­pleted them, twice a day. 9. Take ac­tion. 10. Ex­pe­ri­ence your fear and take ac­tion any­way.

11. Ask, ask, ask. 12. Re­ject re­jec­tion. 13. Net­work. 14. De­velop four new suc­cess habits a year.

15. Pay your­self first – save 10% of all the money you earn and in­vest it. 16. Ask for, and re­spond to, feed­back. 17. Prac­tise un­com­mon ap­pre­ci­a­tion – em­ploy­ees are more mo­ti­vated by ap­pre­ci­a­tion and an un­der­stand­ing at­ti­tude than they are by good wages, job se­cu­rity and pro­mo­tion op­por­tu­ni­ties. 18. Ex­ceed ex­pec­ta­tions. 19. Keep your agree­ments. 20. Mas­ter­mind your way to suc­cess – find and work with an ac­count­abil­ity part­ner or cre­ate a mas­ter­mind group of four to six peo­ple to keep you fo­cused on what is im­por­tant.

21. Prac­tise per­sis­tence.
