Last Friday, I was invited to attend a financial business seminar on how one can increase their success rate on achieving their goals at the same time, get to spread financial education as an advocacy.
John C. Maxwell Trainer, Ruzette Pineda-Cadungo who was also Avon Philippines Sales Director then amongst other things was our speaker. She is presently a top achiever, seller and business manager of one of the many units of Sunlife Financial Philippines.
It was a whole day event filled with motivation, inspiration and passion. Let me share to you her success formula:
The 7 D’s that Ignite Passion
Dreams are goals with deadlines and these dreams usually are departmentalized according to the 10 areas of your life.
Together with every dream, there’s a burning DESIRE to make ways, and get your dreams worked on. It is important that you get to DECIDE the direction of your focus,
stand firm and get to categorize your priorities.
Through constant education and associating yourself with like minded individuals, You get to DEVELOP the DISCIPLINE that would challenge your excuses not to out-win you.
Don’t be afraid to DELEGATE tasks.
Focus on DEDICATING time management for a balanced lifestyle.
We were reminded to stay humble and be obedient to our superiors regardless of age.
Although there may be situations wherein you may disagree, it is important that you voice out respectfully.
Love what you do and it will love you back. Be sincere and always have your heart applied to every task or engagement.
Pursue. Just keep on going.
The formula may sound easy but it sure takes a lot of work and practice. The discipline may be tedious at first but if you want results, nobody reaches the finish line by just standing.
We asked our speaker how she schedule in engagements, balance her time management and what her priorities are.
She plotted out an empty calendar and filled out according to priorities.
She blocked out her bible study and church day, dedicated her children and husband’s travel time (home/school), date night with her husband, and then her client engagements. Errands were scheduled in between.
What inspired me most was that she starts her day as early as 7am with her clients, ends the day at 5PM to make sure she will be with her family and yet still get to log a productive 6 hours each day, 10 faces met each week for her to produce results.
She reiterated that excuses should be challenged by how firm and goal-oriented you are. Never let procrastination and time killers take away your chances.
Nobody reaches the finish line by just standing but rather by taking one step at a time, one foot after another.
I hope somehow this post motivated and inspired you. Go ahead, revisit your goals and start making things happen.
