make no mistake, it is possible. The competition you have to deal with everyday perhaps faces the same
challenges as you do and as such, a little commitment and creativity could be what you need to rank
among the top 5 or 10 in your field. This blog post aims to empower you and provide vital tips that will
come handy in improving your competiveness and ultimately becoming great in what you do.
Phase One- Setting Yourself Up For Success
Start as an Amateur
Everybody has to start somewhere. If you are looking to be the best you can be in what you do, you
must accept that in order to become a pro you will need to start as an amateur first. Not many people
are humble enough to start small. Don’t be those people who procrastinate making a move because
they are too caught up with the idea of being perfect. Doing things your way as an amateur will give you
a great chance to learn and this is vital in become good at what you do.
Get Some Coaching
Education and coaching is also very important. After all, in order to get at the top you will need to learn
from people who have taken the same path and achieved great results. However, you have to be ready
for mentorship. This means taking your dreams seriously and welcoming an opportunity to be taught
and mentored towards your goals.
Don’t Do What Everybody Else Is Doing
The idea of running towards the thing everyone is running from may seem risky, but if it doesn’t seem
crazy to you, it’s perhaps the right thing to do. Don’t just do what everybody else in your industry is
doing, try and be different for your own liking. Avoid conformity and listening to what other people say
about you, make your own rules and live under your own terms.
Remain Consistent Until a Break through Comes Your Way
If you have not managed to get the big break you have been yearning for, keep going and don’t lose
focus. Consistency is perhaps the most vital virtue that will take you to who you want to be. Besides, if
you do something for long enough, the efforts you put will start to compound and before you know it,
success will start knocking on your door. The most important thing is to want success bad enough to put
everything you have towards achieving your goals. This will help accelerate your progress and achieve
results quick enough
Phase Two: How to Become the Best in What You Do
There is a lot of pressure and temptation on your path towards success. Overcoming these challenges
will define your future. Experience is very important too. You need to put the knowledge you have into
practice consistently and learn as much as you can during your day to day activities. Make sure you also
learn from people who have faced the same challenges you have and persevered. Don’t take advice
from someone who doesn’t inspire you.
Make Sure Your Life Is Structured To Optimize Your Performance
Everything you do in your life matters. If you are going to become the very best in what you do, you will
need to structure your life and the way you do things with your goals in mind. You must leverage on
your subconscious mind to help find solutions and ideas to take you forward. For instance, whether you
are having dinner with the family or spending time with colleagues, your subconscious mind should be
mauling over the problems you are facing and how to solve them. Additionally, make sure all the ideas
you have generated in your subconscious are written down in a journal. The problem with many people
is that they focus so much on knowledge input, that is why you will see someone reading a book to get
the knowledge needed to solve problems. however, your subconscious is equally powerful and bringing
out every idea you have is the start of being an innovator and a pioneer in your field.
Don’t Overwork Yourself
Rest and recovery are also two important things you need to achieve your goals. Instead of just being
busy all day, try and develop a results based working approach where every hour helps you get closer to
what you intend to achieve. Focus is of course necessary here but then again, rest and recovery should
be factored into your daily routine
Embrace and Accept Fear and Suffering
Many true performers who are serious about their craft experience fear and suffering all the time. The
idea that nothing can frighten you is simply false. Embracing fear and suffering is important in preparing
you psychologically for potential set backs or disappointments that may stand in your way. Most people
quit when self doubt and uncertainty about their future starts to creep in but true performers keep
going even in the face of adversity. This is what defines and sets you apart from everybody else you are
Do It for Love and Passion
Becoming the best on what you do should be driven by a strong passion for the craft and a lot of
willingness to touch the lives of other people. Don’t do it for the money or for the legacy, but for the
positive ripple effect you will have in service to humanity and yourself. Additionally, try to get inspiration
and motivation from a sense of love and duty to humanity and the possibility of making a life changing
impact in others.
Getting to a point where you earn a living doing what you love the most will require a lot of hard work,
consistency and a lot of sacrifices. However, in order to become the best in the world in what you do,
start by elevating your thoughts and transcending all the norms to follow your instincts.
