  • Good morning! You know, health clubs sell memberships and they tie you into a long-term

  • contract. I think a huge part of that is they know the human psyche so well. We start something,

  • it lasts for a week or two, and then we kind of fall off the band wagon. And, so, they

  • have gyms, beautiful gyms that are not overcrowded even though they continue to sell memberships

  • daily, because the majority of people who have memberships in that club might go a couple

  • times a year. New Years resolutions, the same thing, we make new years resolutions, we fall

  • off after a week or two, and then it gets to the point where we no longer even bother

  • making them. And yesterday I was thinking about focus. I was at a networking event where

  • a friend of mine was talking about systems and about routines or ways of being, habits,

  • that certain people have. He said, 'the people who are very successful in life generally

  • have some kind of system, or some form of habits that they do on a daily, very regular

  • basis that makes them successful in that area.' Another thing that he mentioned was that,

  • 'although they're very successful in some areas, they can be totally unsuccessful in

  • others,' and if we could translate those areas in our life where we do see success and set

  • up routines or systems, in other areas where we need help, that generally we could create

  • the same type of thing. It really got me to thinking because I know that in a lot of cases

  • with my home business, because you are not employed by someone, it is so easy to be sidetracked.

  • That is probably one of the biggest downfalls, I think in any home business because, women

  • especially, because we work out of our home, we cook, we do the cleaning, in most cases,

  • and if we walk past something that needs to be done, it's very hard to not be distracted.

  • In a lot of cases, I hope that this doesn't sound sexist, but men, if they see laundry,

  • they don't necessarily think 'oh my god, I’ve got to go do that' and run down and throw

  • it in and distract themselves, even if they have a home office. At least that has been

  • my experience and that has been what men have shared with me in the past. They don't have

  • the same draw that women do. So how do you create the focus? How do you create something

  • for yourself that allows you to stay so focused, laser-like, that you achieve the goals that

  • you want? They do say that it's 2% or 3% of the people who really rise to the top in an

  • industry. You listen to Tony Robins or different people like that and they talk about modeling

  • successful people. So it's exactly what my friend was saying at the networking event

  • the other day, success leaves clues! If you follow the patterns or the routines daily,

  • and it becomes a habit, to where it's, you don't even think about doing it, you don't

  • get sidetracked, you don't get pulled off base, and you tend to achieve things more

  • efficiently. The interesting thing is that, people who are very successful, sometimes

  • you go 'oh my gosh they're an overnight success,' but what you don't see is the years of work

  • leading up to it, where maybe they didn't have the name or the notoriety at that point,

  • right? So, my thought on, on success and achieving in a home business has more to do with what

  • we do on a daily basis. And I'll leave you with one thought, Tammy Crayk who is a national

  • sales director in Mary Kay says, 'your success lies hidden in your daily routine.' That says

  • it all. Is what you're doing today, going to contribute to success? So, remember Your

  • Success Lies Hidden in Your Daily Routine. Have a great day.

Good morning! You know, health clubs sell memberships and they tie you into a long-term
