Success Starts with Walking Through the Door: Seven Secrets to Achieving Outrageous Success in Your Life!

by Ed Sykes

success, success stories, motivation, motivational, change, opportunity, self improvement, self help, motivational speakers, Ed Sykes, The Sykes GroupSuccess doesn’t come in a nice, neat package waiting for you to open it. Success comes from being motivated enough to create your own door of success and having the courage to walk through it.

Let me share the following success story with you:

I recently received a call from a past coaching student. As Senior Vice President of Human Resources at an international engineering company, she wanted to use my services again. Before we concluded our telephone conversation, she shared the following with me:

“I don’t know how much your coaching helped me at that time. I hated my job and the company I worked for and I knew I was better than that. Your coaching gave me the skills to gain confidence in myself and abilities. Soon after your coaching, I decided to pack my things, quit my job, and walk out the door without other prospects on the horizon,” she said. She also added, “I was scared of the unknown. But I knew I had to leave this situation and find something better.”

Well, she did! She explained that two days after leaving her dead-end job she found success. She was hired by her present company where she quickly rose up to the position of V.P. of Human Resources (since our initial conversation, she has received another promotion to Sr. V.P. of Human Resources). She’s looked at as an authority in the human resources field and is invited to speak at various industry conferences, and she is a trusted confidant of the company’s CEO. In her personal life, she married the love of her life. Most of all, she is happy! This happened all because she had the courage to walk through the door of success.

You too can find success on your terms if you are willing to walk through your door of success. The following are seven secrets to motivating yourself to walk through your door of success and achieve what you want in life:

  1. Know That You are Worthy of More in Life – Many times you will be situations, whether at work or home, for so long that you start to accept the state that you are experiencing. I see this many times when facilitate seminars and a student will come up to me and say, “I hate this job. It makes me sick.” I will then ask them how long have you been at your job? They will state that they have been there 10, 15, or even 20+ years. Don’t accept the pain anymore! Realize that you are worthy of more in life and you deserve better.

  2. Set Powerful Goals - Invest in yourself and take time to set success goals for yourself. Create goals that make you feel passionate. Create S-M-A-R-T-E-R (specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, time-based, encouraging, and rewarding) goals that motivate you to take action and keep you on track.

  3. Visualize Your Success – Visualize yourself already achieving your success. Take the time two or three times a day, preferably in the morning, midday, and before you sleep at night, and visualize yourself being successful at achieving your goals. The key to your success visualization is already being in the state of achieving your success. Include as much detail in your success visualization as possible. As they say, “If you believe it, and see it, you can achieve it.” See your success!

  4. Develop Your Success Skills – Educate yourself for the success you want to achieve. Acquire the skills by investing in classes, trade school, online education, and even volunteering. Move forward to making a better you and preparing yourself for future opportunities.

  5. Develop Your Mastermind Group – Develop a group of experts who will support you and your goals. This could be family members, co-workers and/or management, industry experts, professional associates, and mentors and coaches who will be honest with you and keep you on track.

  6. Develop Your Courage for Success – Understand that there will be naysayers and people along the way who will try to discourage you from achieving your success. They may even be family members who are comfortable with their own lives. You must develop the unshakable courage and conviction that you are worthy of more success in your life and move forward. Also, be courageous enough to ask for feedback from your mastermind group and extract the nuggets of wisdom they share with you.

  7. Take Action – You will not walk through your door of success unless you take the first steps. Take the necessary actions in spite of your fears. Fear is natural. Your success comes from realizing your fears and taking action anyway. Each time you do this, it will make you stronger and more prepared for future successes.

Take action today so that you can enjoy your success once you walk through your door of success. Realize you are worthy of more success in your life, then apply the seven secrets and take the first steps to achieving more success in your life.
