“Success is consistently doing what you said you would do with clarity, focus, ease and grace.”
-Maria Nemeth, Ph.D.
This definition covers everyone, regardless of what your goals are – big or small, personal or professional. It’s so simple and yet all-encompassing. Let’s take a closer look.
CONSISTENTLY. Where do you sit on the “Do what you said you would do” scale?
“Most the time”, it is very important to me
“Some of the time”, it’s not something I focus on; or
“Rarely” – I really need to work on that.
Think about someone you know well who is very successful. I’ll bet they are reliable, very dependable; people can count on them simply because they do what they said they would do.
CLARITY. Our internal GPS. When you are really clear about your destination, the route to get there becomes obvious. People who have clarity know 2 things. First, they know what is important to them; and second, they know the steps they need to take to get them there. Clarity keeps you from overcommitting, becoming overwhelmed; and getting distracted by every shiny object.
FOCUS. Success takes energy and that’s where focus comes in. Focus is a very powerful thing because what you focus on is what you make happen. So focus on your clear destination, whether it is a report that is due or a promised outing for the kids. Imagine the satisfaction reaching that goal will bring to you and others.
EASE. The road to success is twisting, turning, obstacles are thrown in our path, and some sections are a really high and difficult to climb. It can wear out the most resilient of us. How do we reach our goals with ease? By keeping it simple….not making it harder than it needs to be. Just do what it is front of you to do at that very moment.
GRACE. The definition of grace is refined movement. Imagine succeeding with a sense of simple elegance and kindness, with dignity and honor? You can and here is how: The doorway to grace is gratitude. Practice gratitude for even the smallest results. Don’t wait until you reach your goal. Allow yourself to be truly grateful for all the progress you make along the way.
Imagine – what would your life be like? What could you accomplish by “consistently doing what you said you would do with clarity, focus, ease and grace”?
