Being in business for yourself is an incredible feeling! If you’re in business for yourself you might be thinking “yeah, right!” And I completely understand where you’re coming from. Having been in jobs before, owned a traditional business and now in my Polaris Global business I know there are always challenges that come up.
Through Beyond Freedom Evolution and the training offered in Polaris Global I’ve come to realise that, no matter what situations or circumstances come up, you can continue to feel amazing and successful.
Let me reveal a success secret to you: Success only builds on success. Now let me ask you two questions. If you came across ten challenges today do you think at the end of the day you’d feel more empowered or less empowered? Less empowered, right? And if you feel less empowered do you think you’ll be more motivated or less motivated to do work tomorrow? Less motivated of course!
So what steps can you take to feel amazing no matter what? The answer is to constantly feel successful because if you feel successful you’ll me motivated to continue no matter what comes your way.
The secret to continually feeling successful is to Count Your Wins. What’s the first win you had this morning? If you’re like most people you probably think you haven’t had any wins or you’ve chosen some significant win. The truth is that the very first win you had was to open your eyes as you woke up this morning. Wouldn’t you count that as a win? I mean, waking up is a HUGE win compared to not ever waking up again!
You see, your wins don’t have to be significant to be counted. You can even count running water as a win. Did you know that the majority of the world doesn’t have running water to brush their teeth or have a shower with clean water? I think you get the idea now.
Now for all Polaris associates, sometimes I also have days where prospects don’t pick up their phones and I don’t hit my plan. In this case, I could easily focus on the negative side of it – or I could count all my wins and feel great about something. Here’s what my wins list looks like so far today:

My list will continue getting bigger as the day goes by but I can tell you that before I go to bed I will re-read this list and I will feel SUPER SUCCESSFUL and ready for more success tomorrow. Also, any challenges that arose today, I won’t even remember they happened when I look at this list… so I’ll be falling asleep feeling like a success. Cool huh!
Also, as you can see I didn’t get many people onto the business presentation. But you know what… I don’t care! What’s important is that I left heaps of messages, which means I’ve put out into the universe the potential of having 10 people call me back. And you know what else, 2 people have already called me back! Yes, I feel very successful right now
Finally, I’d love to hear your thoughts and also for you to share your wins list for today. Post it in the comments section below!
