Many high performers agree that the more they tap into these behavioral tips, the more success they achieve.  Try some of these tips yourself and let me know how it goes.

  1.  Be authentic.  Sheryl Sandberg, author of Lean In, said, “Motivation comes from working on things we care about and also from working with people we care about so in order to care about someone, you need to know them…I don’t believe we have a professional self Monday-Friday and a real self the rest of the time…in today’s world…it’s all professional and it’s all personal, all at the very same time.”  to summarize, bring your whole self to work.
  2. Be passionate.  When you passionately care, it’s no secret.  Everyone around you can hear it in your voice, see it in your face, see it in your movements.  And passion is both contagious and inspirational.  Being passionate can change everything.
  3. Be focused.  Pick three things, just three and no more, on which to focus very day…three things that you think can have positive impacts on your business, your staff, your clients. You may be surprised with the results that come from your focus.
  4. Look forward and think in 10s.  Ask yourself whether or not the issue about which you’re obsessing today will be urgent in 10 days, 10 weeks, 10 months, 10 years.  Chances are that it won’t be so stop obsessing about it.
  5. Own it.  Own your successes and your failures, your good actions and deeds as well as your bad actions and deeds and own your courage and your mistakes.
  6. Be an artist.  Seth Godin asked, “Are you an artist or just following instructions?”  Curious, out-of-the-box artists at work create value at work by challenging status quo and by stretching the boundaries of what is possible.  Workers who follow instructions are “safe” as well as unlikely to create value at work.
  7. Be and remain persistent.  AirBnB didn’t happen over night; neither did Facebook or Netflix.  Being and staying persistent are crucial to success.
  8. Embrace your fears.  San Sheppard, Pulitzer Price winning author and renowned actor, said that courage is not about having no fear…he said courage is about facing and embracing your fears.  Bottom line, if you never try, you never know.
  9. No excuses and no blaming others.  Check out the Holstee Manifest to remind yourself where we began and what keeps us moving forward.  The Manifest was written to celebrate aspects of life that are valued with phrases such as “This is Your Life,” “Do What You Love,” “Live Your Dream and Share Your Passion,” “Travel Often – Getting Lost Will Help You Find Yourself.”
  10. Enjoy the moment.  Moments don’t last long so appreciate moments that are meaningful.
