Real, lasting abundance is not something that happens overnight. There are many elements that pushed me to where I am today. Nonetheless, I believe one skill supercharged my success more than any others… 

I always discuss how important it is to have the right mindset to even play the game toward achieving financial freedom

However, your frame of mind will mean nothing if there isn’t disciplined action behind it. 

Still, discipline is a broad term with a lot of interpretations. 

Since people don’t understand the aspects of discipline as a skill that contributes to success, they get lost and give up.

For that reason, I am going to discuss the three areas you need to control to fast-track your way to the top… 

1. Define Your Work Ethic

To begin with, you have to develop your work ethic

There is no exact formula for this. However, it comes down to asking yourself:

What do I have to do to keep myself on the right path?

For me, it translates to waking up before the sun rises every morning and not drinking alcohol in excess. It also means being both the first to get to the office and the last to leave.

Most importantly, I don’t allow myself to get sucked into my own victories

So when I close a big deal, I don’t take a vacation or stop aggressively following up other prospects. Actions like these are how you inspire your team and continue to grow. 

Now, let’s talk about how you’re going to handle your income as your success expands…

2. The Discipline of Money as a Skill for Success

The most neglected facet of discipline is also one of the most important — how you spend your money as your revenue increases. 

Here is the rule I want you to follow. 

DO NOT UPGRADE YOUR LIFESTYLE AS YOUR MONEY MULTIPLIES. 

This is especially true as you are on the come-up. I could name countless examples of entrepreneurs and celebrities violating this principle and going broke. 

I don’t want you to be among them. 

Maintain a lifestyle that allows you to put capital back into your business and make investments that pull you forward…

3. Assign Dates to Your Investments

Every time I make an investment in anything, I put a date on it. By the way, I don’t just do this for financial investments. 

Similarly, I label self-education activities, events I attend, and networking opportunities the same way. Why? 

For one, these are all forms of investments. Also, it allows me to look over my schedule as other activities pop up and determine which of these are most beneficial. I won’t get tempted to cancel an investment for a distraction. 

For example, a partner of mine could offer me great tickets to a baseball game. I’m a big baseball fan, by the way.

With the method I described, I could see if the game was a distraction or an investment

Are other prospective clients going to be at the game? Will attending make me too tired or affect another meeting I have? 

Basically, you have to determine if it will cost or earn you money, which is the overarching theme of entrepreneurial discipline. 

How to Gain the Skill Set Necessary for Massive Success

By now, you can see how discipline is the number one skill that supercharged my success.

You may get rich if you violate these rules, but you will not become wealthy.

Wealth takes real strategies, grit, and expert knowledge. 

With that in mind, I am hosting the Unbreakable Business Challenge to get you disciplined and armed with all the tools you need to supercharge your success.
