Success Hacks on How to Get Results
Falling in Love with the Process Hack – Jay Shetty
When you fall in love with the process of getting the results as much as you do as when you achieve the results, you will be able to get whatever results you want!
I wanted to discover the true meaning of life so I went to study with a monk. Everybody wants to discover the true meaning of life but nobody wanted to do the work. This means waking up at two in the morning, reading and studying for the first three hours and having a full 17 to 18 hour day. I realized that when I started out with those first 2 to 3 hours at 2 am in the morning, I had so much clarity on what I wanted to create. It makes things so much easier so you can get the results you want.
As long as you fall in love with the process of what it takes to get the results and all the things that you made the beginning not want to do to get there but think of it like this!
They’re also a lot of others who would not be doing these things so that gives you a huge competitive advantage in the marketplace! Fall in love with the process. The success will be a byproduct of that process!
Budda quote – “Suffering produces preseverence. Preseverance producers character. And character produces hope!”
Falling in love with the process is extremely important because it keeps you driven to succeed. It is also important because it keeps you focused on the act of trying to succeed, instead of the rewards that come with success. This simple thought process is the key to everlasting success.
How to Have Everlasting Success Hack – Rodney Mullen
He’s responsible for some of the most creative hacks and skateboarding. When asked why he threw all the trophies away he said – It’s really interesting, when I see people with success, I don’t see it the same way that others do. I see success as a tombstone. I see the Nobel Peace Prize as a tombstone for decoration because what they just did was burn out the fire that was driving them.
How do you keep the fire alive? When you do something simply for the sake of enjoying it, regardless of the trophies or the awards, that’s when you’ll have ever lasting success! It’s great to get recognized for your success and at that time it is great, but I throw it away because I don’t want it to define me. I realize I’m much bigger than a trophy. It was an achievement at a certain part in my life and I’m going to continue to grow and move onto the next journey of who I’m becoming! I recommend to thoroughly enjoy where you’re at and being aware of the process that you’re going through and growing through it!
As you can see, Mullen is not so concerned about the results of his hard work, but rather how much he enjoyed working hard to get those results. The results are incidental, it is the action that is what is important.
Taking Action Before You Know the Results Hack – Myron Golden
“There’s a work you do and work that it does on you. It’s a person you’re becoming is so worth it in the future!”
We all teach something and want to make sure others get results at the end of the day. We build out a course or teach only to have others attempt it and fail or not even get started. Why is that? Here’s what we call the communication gap. It is when someone is speaking, we think people are listening the same way!
I think in the same way we are there actually listening to it based on who we think they are and translating into the language so there’s a big difference between speaking about being the person and they’re looking for what to do.
Here’s how you can bridge the gap and become the person you want to become. I take ownership of the results. For example, before you make money we may say I don’t know how but I’m going to keep doing it until I get it! The only reason why we don’t do this is because of our mis-education system! For most of us need to know the right answer before we do anything! That is not the case today! It’s about taking ownership of the results before you know the path! So take action before you know the results. You’ll be able to bridge the gap now from where you started to who you want to become!
When you take action before knowing the outcome, you force yourself to enjoy the process, which keeps you driven to do more. However, it also means you are going to struggle along way, but is that necessarily a bad thing?
The Metamorphosis Hack – from the movie Heal
There’s a story about a man who sees a caterpillar that’s about to breakthrough. He sees its skin and sees it’s struggling, so he cuts it to open to help it only to see the caterpillar turn into a butterfly too early and die. Since the caterpillar physically needed to go thru the process of emergence and struggle! The challenge is, we all see the butterflies out in our world, but we forget they all started out as caterpillars! For us to get the same type of results and the same type of happiness and fulfillment, we need to go thru the same metamorphosis. This is so we can have the transformation required to be strong enough to change and fly because we went thru the process ourselves. Now this can be sped up by support, by mentorship and community, but just realize the journey is still our own!
Embracing the struggle to achieve success is crucial toward allowing yourself to do it again and again. However, not all struggle is hard, sometimes it’s just tedious.
Enjoying the Tedium to Achieve Greatness Hack -Jerry Lewis
Jerry Lewis wrote, directed, and acted in all his movies. Jerry Seinfeld said there’s not a lot of people who can do all that. Some can act, but doing acting and writing is out. That’s like knowing both math and architecture. It’s very tedious! He responded, “The tedium doesn’t allow you to move on. The tedium forces you to stay until it is no longer tedious!” So keep doing the tedium until it is no longer tedious. That’s how you achieve mastery or greatness in your field!
