EDITOR'S NOTE: 5 Ways To Attract The Success You Desire

So, maybe you are exhausted about the success that seems so elusive. Maybe you want to throw in the towel and just give up. No, don't do it...Not yet!

Here are 5 Strategies I Use to Attract SUCCESS - Apply Them and Be Sure That Your Reward and Honor will be well on its Way.

#1) Express It - My FIRST strategy for reaching success in any goal - is to put the plan out there in the universe, so I can become accountable. It is the first step process of The NAKED Philosophy™ - EXPRESSION (could either be an articulation of a challenge or a declaration of desire). So ...Yeah...Yeah! Get up - and get ready to declare your intention.

See - I believe in affirmation. I believe in the power of expression. I believe I can tell the universe how I feel or what I want... And the universe listens to me and then aligns itself for my greatness.

This is for real. It always works for me, because I'm forced to deliver when I tell the world what I intend to achieve.

Imagine being a public FAILURE - setting myself up...falling down on my big round ass, so people can laugh at my foolishness and say "Yeah, that's right... Alex the big fat dreamer" - No way, I have no choice but to slay and WIN. And you too should try it.

Set a goal... Set a date and Announce to the world your next big project. Tell your friends, family, colleagues or followers on social media that "big idea" that has you tossing and turning in bed - then get ready to make it happen.

2) Collaborate With Others - Once you have identified what you want to achieve, now it is time to find the people, brands and resources that can help you make that VISION come true.

Be relentless about it. Dig for winners. Find people who make you elevate your standards and reach out to them... Extend something valuable too. Don't just be a taker - come with something AMAZING too. Bring something incredible to the table, that they might find worthy. Be it an idea, creativity, contacts, resources or just provide solution to their problems or hand them an offer they too can not resist. Winners are GIVERS...Winners don't compete, they collaborate.

When you open your heart, expand your MIND and operate from a place of ABUNDANCE and not Scarcity. Partners become resources. Resources become Endless... And YOU my dear, become UNLIMITABLE because you are able to spot opportunity even in the least obvious circumstances, and see the vision, beyond its physical boundaries. You learn what real winning feels like, surrounded by real players.

Don't worry about being out-shined, upstaged or faffing around in the background, while someone else takes your glory - That fear stems from scarcity mentality - The thought that "success" is so hard to come by, so limited, that it will not be enough to go round , so only you have to go the journey alone, just so you don't have to share the spotlight with someone else - WRONG MOVE!!

Don't be ashamed or afraid to join forces with other people who are travelling towards the same direction or along the same path with you, and are ready to win too - Even if you are an expert too. Coaches also have their mentors.

Travelling by yourself, can be a lonely, long and tiring experience. Having people to share the challenges and the burden makes it easier. Remember if your associates win, YOU too win. A win for one, is a win for all. Collaboration is a win/win if you partner and associate with the right people.

3) Take Stock - Now PAUSE and breath...It is time to analyse your partnerships, collaborations and alignment. Have they been beneficial in moving you (a step or series of steps) towards your goals? Review your progress and get ready to chuck out the time-wasters. Its easy to spot them...Take a look at their track record...Do they finish anything they start? Do they make excuses upon excuses? Do they have a pattern of making "high falluting promises" that they never keep?

Set up an accountability partner or join a mastermind circle and check in from time to time to see where you stand on your success ladder...See what's working...and what's not. Or better still do it yourself, if you believe you can trust yourself to be unbiased.

We are almost down half of the year, How is your vision board lookingggg?? Is it looking pretty? Are you meeting those insane goals you set, or do you need some good help moving your butt there? If you need help, don't be afraid to ask for the help you need.

Also don't be afraid to make adjustments, after all - we learn as we go - most people think their vision board has to be cast on stone. Sometimes, reviewing our vision might require us to make necessary shifts, either by adjusting our goal-lines or our timelines. And that too is okay. Nothing to sulk over. Whew!

4) BRAG Your Pants Off - Surely, they say its not bragging if you can back up your claims. Now - I'm not suggesting you become an empty vessel that makes the loudest bang bang.

I'm just saying that, if you have been able to (B)oldly (R)adically (A)chieve (G)oals... Then blow your freaking trumpet, baby. Blow it loud and proud...And get a back-up-band to sing the "Alleluia chorus" with you. Whoosh! Just do it in a classy way.

Your naysayers do NOT want the world to hear your good news. Babyyyyy stick up your middle finger and take the gospel to them.

Do not be ashamed to let the world know how fantastic, BRILLIANT and powerful you are. You are simply honoring your hard-work.

Even if you can't afford a traditional media machinery, get a street team - fill it up with your brother, sister, neighbor or the newspaper boy down the street, use social media, employ word of mouth, guest on shows, contribute to blogs, send newsletters, take the mic from the pastor and announce it in church...take advantage of any opportunity you get to blow your megaphone, sell yourself and BLAST YOUR SUCCESS on overdrive.

I am learning that people only pay attention to what is placed right in front of them - Get NAKED in their face - Shake your colorful tail feather...And REVEAL your Awesomeness.

Don't try to live in a fool's paradise. Remember, that people won't leave their drums to beat your gong, until you become super successful. You've got to play your music right - because if nobody is aware of your greatness, how will you attract more success? Remember success begets more success... And most successful people love to surround themselves with other champions.

#5) Show Gratitude & Be Thankful - Have you heard that MORE, comes to those who are thankful for what they get. Don't go about life feeling ENTITLED. Every single thing you get is a PRIVILEGE, not your birthright - because there are people out there, working just as hard, maybe even as smart - who don't have a fraction of what you have.

Be thankful for the opportunities you get, for the lessons and wisdom that come out of your mistakes. Be grateful for the advise you get, and every information that miraculously shows up on your table.

Be thankful to your mentors, coaches... those who help you stay grinding and grounded....Be Grateful to your team mates, collaborators, tribe, followers, fans, community, partners and support system. In fact - Be thankful EVEN to the haters who never believed in you (It will drive them nuts) Ha ha ha.

People give more and DO MORE for those who are not ashamed to say "Thank you".... And continue to be appreciative of the kindness, love, and support they receive.

Find innovative ways to show your gratitude. A sincere shout out, once in a while on social media, maybe even in a newspaper, radio or TV interview when you get the chance to be celebrated. Be generous and celebrate them too.

Perhaps, a nice warm out-of-the-blue personal email or message thanking whoever it is you are grateful to have in your life, maybe send a lovely surprise gift or plan a meet & greet... A special lunch date, freebie or giveaway.

To me, gratitude is the most powerful FUEL that drives our belief system.

Whether you’re a single mompreneur, solopreneur, serial entrepreneur, small business owner, a successful executive of a major fortune 500 company, an artiste, celebrity or even just an aspiring entrepreneur developing a side hustle - take some time, to truly think about what GRATITUDE means to you, what you’re truly thankful for deep down and how you can use it to your advantage.

Gratitude gives us that extra edge, that PUSH we to stay grounded even while we’re chasing our goals.

It’s such an important tool that most people generally overlook but need to be more - conscious of - if you’re going to succeed, and thrive.

  1. Hi Alex; While reading this I was reminded of an old carnival saying. Its been attributed to W. C. Field. It goes The only way you can lose is to die or quit playing and you look pretty healthy to me kid. I've had a few weeks where I felt unmotivated and short of energy. This post reminded me to do some work on gratitude. I started making a list of all the good things that have happened lately including those that happened to people I am helping either out of friendship or as their paid consultant. I also made a list of things not yet achieved that are in the near distance. I thought about good friends like you, Vanessa, Maura, Frederic, and the like. Then I got the great news that my friend and client Adriana will be featured in a future edition of this fine publication. I still feel kind of tired. I still feel like I'm not getting enough done. But I have a smile on my face. Hoping your readers not only read your posts but actually work through them and apply them in their own lives. You are amazing my friend, Max
