Over 10 years of being a full-time entrepreneur and much of that working with over 300,000 people as a coach, trainer or consultant – I've begun to see patterns in successful and unsuccessful people. (both invigorating and painful to watch!)

Successful people are decisive, consistent, committed, focused. They have routines they stick to and great work ethic. They don't try and re-invent the wheel but instead focus on simplicity and elegant ideas (over complicated ones).

While unsuccessful people are indecisive, inconsistent, uncommitted and lack focus. They are all over the place and lack structure and give up way to easy. They also are always obsessed with the next “secret” hottest way to get rich instead of the obvious paths that have stood the tests of time.

Yeah. I used to be that way, too (the unsuccessful dude). I was a “free spirit” who wanted nothing to do with structure and needed to be able to fly by the seat of my pants. I also thought “multiple streams of income” meant have “multiple businesses” …and that idea prevented me from making any significant money for many years.

Here's what I focus on instead today:

I'll see you in the comments 🙂
