People are basically all the same: we differ only in our results

The have part is the results in your life today. Are you getting the results you are expecting?

This is the part that tells you what you have accomplished so far in terms of your dream. What short term goals have you achieved so far and what goals do you have to take action on. Are you on-track, or off-track.

What are the problems that are slowing you down, and how can you achieve your goals faster. This is the part where you do an honest evaluation at different times in your life e.g. monthly, 6-monthly and yearly.
This I refer to as “my reality check”.

Results is the name of the game. Also remember the following fact which
I have come to realize and which motivates me to change:

namely: thinking, habits, self-image

Example: You cannot get more light from a 60 watt light bulb.
If you want more light, you have to replace that bulb with a fluorescent tube.
The electricity (eg. the profits/sales) is always there; you just have to become a better channel, like the “fluorescent tube”, from which that light can flow.

You cannot get better results when you are
still thinking like an employee,
when you should be thinking like an entrepreneur.

Once you decide to become a better channel,
(through better thinking, better habits, better self-image)
you will get better light (better results) in your life.

Remember: It's easy to become a "light bulb", but it takes pain and
persistence to become a “fluorescent tube”.
(have you ever thought that you could become a "spotlight" on a rugby stadium).

Don’t ever be afraid to dream big.
Don't ever get complacent, have a bigger purpose in life worth achieving.

It is our results that makes us different and sets us apart from other people.

Results take time.
Make sure you make reasonable progress
in reasonable time.

If you don't see the results in the time you have allocated, then do not give up,
but increase your knowledge. Adjust and make a better plan.
Ask yourself what do I have to know now which I have missed before.

Do not ask yourself whether you can do it or not (you know you can),
but keep asking how you can do it.

Winners know how to handle failure.

What if you get poor results (fail). How does it affect your self image/attitude.
What do you say to yourself when you fail?
This is a good question, because by law you will fail many times
(make adjustments) before you win.

Those who know success also know what it feels like to fail.
They also know what it feels like to start over again,
but they also know what it feels like to complete a goal and win.

Success has a price you have to pay, but the results is worth the price.
Be prepared to take the pain.
That's probably the reason most dreams remain wishes, because most people are
just not prepared to go through the growing pains of small business.

They want results too fast and too painless.
We expect our goals to be achieved in a specific time,
and if it doesn't we shouldn’t give up but continue
working on our goal until it is achieved. Here the key word is: UNTIL.

We set a reasonable date/time (detail) for achievement,
however, the exact timing of results we leave up to life itself.

It will come. There is a time to sow and a time to reap,
but it never happens in the same season.
Do not make your evaluation too prematurely.
You cannot have better (or big) results in your life without
better (or bigger) thinking. Your results will be the reward (or reaping)
as the direct result of the change in your character (thinking) as you adapt to
the bigger star you are shooting at.

It could be investing in a property, adding to your business portfolio or buying a franchise, but whatever it is, you cannot have the results unless
you know exactly what the dream is.
Unfortunately many people adjust their dreams downward along the way
(scale down to a smaller one) because they do not see the results early enough.

Do not do that. Keep the faith. Keep the dream. Keep the determination to do what it takes, whatever it takes (gather more knowledge).
Do not let go, until you see your dream becoming a reality.

You cannot evaluate your long -term goal until it is truly completed...
.. until that last piece of the puzzle is put in its place.


Remember the true meaning of the word excellence:
Excellence is a commitment
to completion
