So many people have the potential to achieve their dreams and be successful – yet they fail to do so. They lose focus on what drives them and they lose control of their own destiny. The 5 Rs can help a person stay focused or refocus on what is important to them and what they need to do to achieve their dream! Responsibility – Take responsibility for your life. Do not go through life as a volunteer victim. Everyone thinks they are controlled by what has happened to them. Life happens to everybody. Everybody has a story. Don’t go around complaining and whining about your life – 80% of the people who hear you won’t care and the other 20% are glad its you and not them. Be positive about your life and grateful for what you do have and take responsibility for what needs to change. Radical Change – If you are casual about your dream, you will end up a causality. If you want to go from poverty to power, you’ve got to be radical and be willing to change. Get outside your comfort zone. Relationships –You’ve got to leave some people behind. Get toxic, dragging, not “doing”, excuse making people out of your life. Associate with or emulate those who have or are what you want. Do what they have done. Success breeds success. You wouldn’t hire an overweight person as a personal trainer or a uneducated person as a tutor; so why would you take advice on finance or success from someone who has none? Reasons – Find your reason you won’t give up. What gets you fired up? What can cause you to face rejection and “no” again and again and again and still keep trying? What’s your why? Relentless – You’ve got to comeback again and again . Is it easy? NO!!! It’s hard to change your life. It takes courage. You have to be HUNGRY!! People that are hungry are reinventing themselves; they are taking responsibility for themselves; they are developing and training themselves. People that are hungry are unstoppable! People that are hungry make discipline a major force in their lives. People that are hungry are not discouraged when faced with rejection and “no”. People that are hungry do not give excuses – they keep pushing forward until they make it happen! People that are hungry do whatever it takes - they get up early and go to bed late; they miss little league games and dance recitals; they make sacrifices. People that are hungry want to control their destiny!!
