So let’s get real. Everybody wants to succeed in life and live the life they dream about. Like most other people, each year they set up their goals in the beginning of the year that they want to achieve. Sadly, most people never achieve those goals.

There is a very good reason for this. Having goals is great, but not having a technique or process how to achieve those goals is what spells disaster.

In this post, I am going to share a simple 5 step “Success Framing” technique that has enabled me to succeed massively. From being able to quit my 9 to 5 job, to running businesses I love and changing people’s lives.


Not only is this a technique you can apply to your goals but it can be used for anything in life. It about having a blueprint to use and apply wherever needed for you to succeed — your studies, your personal, career and life goals, running a project, starting a business etc, etc.

Are you ready to get started?

Here are the key concepts to the success framing technique that I needed to learn and master to set up my success and you are welcome to use them too.

Developing and keeping the right Mindset

This I believe is central to everything we do in life. How we think about anything is going to determine the outcome. You need to be 100% honest with yourself to the point of it being painful.

This journey is never easy but it’s crucial to us reaching the other side triumphant.

Be realistic with yourself about what you can actually achieve.

Be hard on yourself to remove all negativity from your life.

On the days when you least want to do something you MUST push yourself to get it done. You will thank yourself for this in the future.

Challenge every status quo and get rid of those that don’t serve you and your vision.

Keep a journal and write everything down, the good, the bad and the ugly!

For you to come out on the other side of this journey, being the best version of yourself, you need to be in the best frame of mind possible.

Obtaining a relevant, valuable Education

For you to move to the next level you need to press the reset button. What has brought you to this point is no longer going to be relevant.

Take responsibility for your further education, relevant to your industry or preferred niche.

Immerse yourself in your niche or industry; learn as much as you can from authority leaders and others.

Read books, attend training/workshops, subscribe to blogs and connect on social media with like-minded individuals.

When all is done and told, you need to stay in touch with the latest and most up to date happenings in your industry/niche for your business/brand to flourish and to stay top of mind in your target market.

This alone will provide your business and your brand with credibility and authority second to none, which builds trust and loyalty amongst your audience and followers.

Find mentors and coaches that have walked this road ahead of you and can help fast track your success. Why do you want to re-invent the wheel – learn from those that have already made all the mistakes, then just keep moving forward.



Implementing Goal Setting and Celebration

This is something that we all know how to do but never do in the correct way.

Goals need to be realistic and measurable. Remember – what gets measured gets managed.

Have a maximum of 3 goals per period. Make them very specific. 30 days, 60 days, 90 days and 120 days; once completed, then set up the next 30, 60, 90 and 120 days.

Celebrate each goal achieved, every win, no matter in what way. This will provide impetus and self belief that the rest of the goals can be achieved, plus adding a huge feel good factor that will encourage you to continue moving forward.

Without action nothing moves

Nobody is going to do this for you or can do this for you. You need to get up off your butt and do the work. Take action immediately on everything you have learnt as soon as possible, empowering you to succeed.

When you don’t feel like doing anything – do it anyway.

Taking action will make you feel as if you are moving towards your vision and it’s true. Every step you take, no matter how small, is still taking action.

Always remember “Version 1.0 is better than Version 0.0” – so just get things done!!

Regular re-evaluation and re-assessment

At least once a month take time out to re-evaluate and reassess where you are and then take the necessary steps to adjust and move in the right direction.

Today, when I look at the notes of those early days and compare them to where I am now – I am amazed at the growth and I can see what I have achieved and nothing can beat that.

Not only that, but if you do not re-evaluate and reassess, then you will never know what is working and what’s not working.

These 5 concepts are what forms the foundation of my success. No matter the industry or the niche  this will work for you.

Final Thoughts

So, when you decide to take action and use this technique, then you will be better prepared than 98% of anybody else. Success is a journey, not a destination and as such you need a plan/route to be able to follow.

What do you use that allows you to succeed?  Please feel free to share your ideas and tactics in the comments, I would love to hear from you.
