Everyday is a great day because you are alive to see, BUT today is even more special because it’s my birthday! This time last year I would only share my excitement with my close selected people, but I was urged to share with the world today! This excitement had me intrigued on my own internal actions and I came to the following conclusion. I created a visualization and self-development ritual around this time last year and I knew that I was going to greatly impact the world in my way but didn’t know how then. I wrote my goals down and took actions on them to achieve them until they became my reality. Today is an example of the power of actions and goal setting!
I achieved a lot at 30 years old and mostly never realize my actions or how powerful they are until later on. Completing my ritual and embracing my urge to share, I noticed a massive difference from myself. The crazy part was that it was only in a twelve month period. Well today I’m pleased and honored to share my thoughts with you! Here are the top 30 things I’ve learned being 30 years old. They are in no particular.
HERE WE GO!!
1. GOALS ARE POWERFUL
Many of my goals last year were destroyed and had to create New goals before the year was over.
2. CLARITY IS KEY
The more clear I got on things, the better my performance and results were.
3. FOCUS IS NEEDED FOR SUCCESS
Every success I had last year, I had absolute laser focus to complete all tasks.
4. DELAYED GRATITUDE IS WAY BETTER THAN INSTANT GRATITUDE
Being an Entrepreneur is HARD, but being tough for results yielded massive success & self-confidence than.
I never thought my story was impactful and was stingy with my knowledge. I wrote an Amazon Best Selling book and that completely changed my thoughts!
6. YOUR STORY IS POWERFUL & CAN HELP OTHERS
Sharing my story with people greatly impacted their life and some took actions in their life and businesses to yield them massive results also!
7. READ FOR GREATER KNOWLEDGE AND CLARITY
I learned that the most successful CEO’s read about 60 books a year to I challenged myself to double it. I aimed for 150 but fell short at 120 & learned TREMENDOUSLY, which positively affected my results!
8. BEING AN ENTREPRENEUR IS LONELY
I struggled at times to remain positive and felt I was alone in my quest to leave my legacy on this world. Rare few will do what’s needed to achieve greatness and I knew I will be a 1%’er one day, BUT some days last year were the worst thing I’ve put my body through for results. Embracing it made it easier and drove me to the right actions.
9. LIVE YOUR DREAM UNTIL IT HAPPENS
I truly believed I would be the man I envisioned in my planner, and had to live out my words I wrote to feel my future now. This created a massive mental and physical shift in my body to act like I believe and see results come.
10. YOU CAN BULLETPROOF YOUR MIND FOR SUCCESS NO MATTER WHAT
I knew had to adopt new rituals, activities, friends, actions, and successes to achieve my overall goals. The world is too noisy with a lot of false data in the market. Bullet proofing my mind according to my goals made a massive difference in my production.
11. TIME MANAGEMENT
It’s only 24hrs in a day and when it’s all said in done with Police work (8), sleep (6) and family time (3), I’m left with about 7hrs to effectively run 3 businesses with activities that demand attention and personal time. Needless to say TIME MANAGEMENT is key!
This I did well, as it’s a big part of my nature! Unfortunately, I suffered socially not to be more known, but strived to achieve ACTUAL results to be more authentic with my audience. It paid off in my opinion against all the social media advice I got.
13. SUCCESS IS IN THE EYE OF THE BEHOLDER
I defined my success and ignored the rest. My success is to leave a legacy that I didn’t have, to afford my family better opportunities to live life to the fullest while helping others effectively. All my actions, products, and content do just this.
14. HAVING A SCHEDULE IS NEEDED DAILY
With all my activities and business ventures, having things scheduled out made things a lot better and more efficient for me.
15. TIME OFF IS NEEDED
I’ve been one not to take time off as I operate as if I’m behind in life daily. Taking personal time off increased my productivity, sleep, and mental state more times than none!
16. TEACH PEOPLE HOW TO TREAT YOU
As a young business owner I believe everything and everyone could possibly produce opportunities. Last year, I respectfully taught people the importance of my time, my attention, and positive ways to effectively communicate with me for positive results. If you don’t teach people how to treat you they will run all over you.
17. SELF DISCIPLINE LEADS TO UNFORESEEN RESULTS
I started the year off with this goal and never imagine it would create other opportunities, create more time in my day, save me from possible failures it would take long to recover from.
18. SELF CONFIDENCE CREATES AND RETAINS MASSIVE MOMENTUM
Once I obtained the knowledge to execute in my actions and achieve results, nothing was impossible after that! Still to this day self-confidence is a driving factor in anyone’s success. Oh wait..It’s also seen as being COCKY lol
19. ELIMINATING SELF DOUBT IS EASIER TO REMOVE THAN EXPECTED
Being stressed for time, I believed I wouldn’t be able to complete projects, close deals, or handle multiple things. I worked hard to eliminate my self-doubt and replaced it with self-confidence. HERE I AM!!
20. UTILIZE THE INFORMATION READILY AT YOUR FINGERTIPS WHEN NEEDED
Yes at your fingertips! I reprogrammed my phone from being a bill to a moneymaker. Most people use they’re phone as a debt or constant distraction, so realizing this I utilized the feature in my phone to help me everyday.
Taking naps throughout my day created energy boosts that I needed to perform and complete tasks. As funny as it seemed to me, it was added to my daily actions. No wonder little kids always have energy!
Routines cut out a lot of guesswork in my days and made the more structured.
Started out a tedious thing and just a new routine to acquire but rituals are so powerful in my actions to not only yield results, but gain clarity to take needed actions.
24. THOROUGHLY EVALUATE OPPORTUNITIES
I took just about every opportunity before and last year were selected few. I gained the knowledge to thoroughly evaluate opportunities to fit my lifestyle and yielded massive results as well as saved time.
25. PROTECT YOUR TIME
Simple, you can’t get it back so be stingy with it. Live the life you want to live on your time.
26. EMBRACE THE HATERS
Notice how far down this is lol. My haters stopped reading by now! Just know that they become your biggest fans soon after so embrace them.
27. NETWORK EFFECTIVELY
The same way someone will waste your time, everyone does not take networking serious. Learning that fact made me network effectively to meet some real game changers for future opportunities
Hard skill to lock in, and when I finally did my life was less stressful. Remaining disciplined to follow my schedule whether I get to a task or not greatly reduced my late night sessions or work and stress.
29. CREATING ACTION TRIGGERS FOR MOMENTUM
I visually created triggers in my life to remind me I needed to take certain actions and some were reminders of why I needed to do an action. Triggers were my failsafe’s to protect my overall goal of my Legacy. I would see a trigger, take the necessary action, and reward myself if done correctly. Rarely did I miss my rewards!
30. THE WORLD WILL HELP YOU SUCCEED IF YOU TRULY BELIEVE IN YOURSELF
Whether you believe in the law of attraction or not it’s REAL. These realizations wouldn’t be possible if I didn’t tell myself last year I WILL LEAVE A LASTING LEGACY TO SUCCEED ME. After constant actions on my goals, I was forced to create new goals before the end of year and set HIGHER targets as I realized I set them too low.
If you’re still here at this point I would like to say THANK YOU for allowing me to share my top 30 lessons at this point of my life. I’m honored to have kept your attention and share some things that could have a massive impact in your life this year! I already feel this year will massive and I would love to continue to share meaningful content to you that will create success in your life as well.
