Can you really create real results and succeed fast? In short, the answer is yes. As long as you follow the right method and do it in the right way, you can produce extraordinary success as quickly as possible.
Richard L. Evans once said, “Your direction is more important than your speed.” And he is absolutely right. First, you don’t want to be chasing the wrong thing. You don’t want to pour all your effort to climb the ladder only to discover that you’re leaning against the wrong wall.
Second, you want to make sure your hard work is going to be fruitful. For example, if your goal is to see the sunrise, there is no point to keep running west. No matter how fast you run, you will only get to the wrong place.
Therefore, you want to make sure you use the right approach to achieving the success you want. And here are the 3 powerful methods to help you create the results you want and get you the success you want in the shortest time possible.
This is one of the most important keys to success. If you are not aware of what you want or what you did wrong, you will never get the success you desire. Think about it, if you are a basketball player and you want to become the best on your team, but you aren’t aware that your shooting skill needs improvement, guess what will happen? You can’t improve and you will fail at your goal.
Therefore, you must be aware of what you want, how to get it, and how to improve yourself to do better. Most people are sleepwalking in their jobs. They have no idea what they want out of life. They repeat what they do day-in and day-out, feeling stuck, stressed, and getting nowhere.
You can’t fix what you don’t know is broken. Hence, the first step to creating outstanding success is to be aware of it. Be aware of what you want, how to get it, and where you need to improve to achieve the results you want.
This is why you need to have a vision, set goals, review them daily, and then keep yourself in the loop until you achieve the success you desire.
Most people are not successful because they are not aware of their current situation and they don’t actively chase the results they want. They fall into the rat race and do what most people are doing. Raise your self-awareness for what you want and pay attention to the results you desire. Understand what you want, how to get it, and what must you improve to attain it.
2. Apply the 90-90-1 Rule
Next, apply the 90-90-1 Rule in your everyday life. I first learned about this rule from Robin Sharma, the best-selling author of The 5 AM Club. This rule is simple to understand, but not easy to stick to it. Here’s what you need to do. For the next 90 days, spend your first 90 minutes working on your number one priority.
Studies have shown that to form a new habit, you need to repeat it for at least 66 days. And if you can work on your goals for the next 90 days, you will be able to transform your action into habits.
Plus, you want to spend the first 90 minutes of each day working on your number one priority or project. You see, we’re living in a distracting world. And one great way to get rid of all the distractions is by working on our priority first thing in the morning.
When you follow this rule, you get to work on your most important thing first thing in the morning. This will make sure you are putting in the effort to create real results. If something is important for you, you want to make sure you work on it first thing. Hence, schedule your time and work on your goal in the first 90 minutes of your day.
Next, you want to make sure to only focus on just one goal or project. You don’t want to spread yourself too thin by focusing on too many goals. If you are committed to creating extraordinary success, put your focus on just one thing, and work on it relentlessly.
If you follow the 90-90-1 Rule and you work on your number one priority for 90 minutes for 90 days straight, trust me, you will see significant results by the end of the 3 months.
3. Commit to Never-Ending Improvement
The third method to create explosive growth fast is to commit to never-ending improvement. The only way you can continue to do better and make progress is through improvement. If you continue to do what you do, you will continue to get the same old results. Unless you change the way you do things, nothing is going to change.
As I mentioned above, you want to work hard and at the same time, you want to also make sure your hard work will pay off. You don’t want to be working on something that isn’t going to get you the result you want.
For example, if you want to lose weight, walking 10,000 steps a day may be a plan of yours, but if you only rely solely on walking, it may not be the most effective way. Thus, you need to identify your approach and understand how to get the most out of your strategy and what you do.
This is why you must consistently learn and improve. And the easiest way is through learning from others. Study how others who have done it before and replicate their success. You can’t learn everything on your own, you need to leverage on other people’s experiences.
It is possible to achieve amazing results and create the success you desire in life, fast. But you must do the right thing and work hard on the right plan. Use these 3 powerful methods and you will be able to achieve the extraordinary success you seek.
