I am sure we have all heard the statement “jack of all trades and master of none”. This wisdom was created to demonstrate the importance of being aware not to “skim over” new skillsets that you wish to acquire but rather to spend lots of time and energy becoming a person of excellence in all you do.
You see, the person who decides to take on a skillset to get a result in any area of life, and invests the correct amount of time and energy, ultimately achieves the results – studies have shown 5,000 to 10,000 hours are required to becoming an outstanding expert individual in your chosen career (becoming outstanding is “standing out” rather than being average).
Over the years I have met many people who do course after course (seminar after seminar) thinking that just by doing a course this will make them significantly better in a topic (for example property investment). How many people do you know that do wealth course after wealth course hoping to make more money and create more wealth but they never do? Please understand I certainly am a big advocate of education and as such doing a course is very important – it becomes the foundation of a change in mindset and the adoption of new strategies to achieve the goal you have set. However, one also needs to keep doing courses, keep reading books, keep finding like minded people who actually have succeeded to hang around with & learn from (such as the guests who come on our Breakfast at the Next Level www.nextlevelbreakfasts.com.au), and to apply this knowledge in the form of action (hence the importance of having a Performance Coach to keep one totally accountable).
So are you one of those people that will do “whatever it takes” (ethically and morally of course) to achieve your career or finance goal? If it was so easy everyone would be able to achieve it and that is exactly the truth – it is not easy…growth is never easy but it is totally worth it. Once you grow into the person you need to become to achieve the goal, then you will will never go back to the person you were…you are now a new exciting creation…a better version of you than before!
I have studied successful people for decades and time and time again I see one common characteristic – they choose their goal then they focus like a laser beam until they achieve it. Where you focus your mind is where you get results. What is amazing is that I believe we rarely ever use more than 10% of the capacity of our brains during our life which means we all have incredible capacity to create magnificient results in our life if we will just focus focus focus.
If you are frustrated and want to have an advancement in your career or to create expanding wealth and income, then decide today that you will become a person who will do whateveer it takes (time perhaps to get a Performance Coach to get you there) and that you will focus your energy and time to excelling. Persist persist persist and you will get to your destination in life.

I want to wish you always more and more abundance, provision and success in your life. For I know that if I can have you lead a better life, then you will impact those around you in a positive way.
