5 Tips To Be #1 At Everything You Do

Let's be honest. Who doesn't like being the best? Sure, there is always room to grow, but is still feels great to scale a new wall, try something new and quickly dominate it. Here is my personal Code to becoming #1 at everything I do.

1. Keep Your Priorities Straight
What is the most important part of your life? 
  • Friends
  • Family
  • Love
  • Heath
  • Purpose 
  • Creation
  • Contribution
It can be none, one or all of these items. 

What kind of lifestyle do you want to live? Without knowing where you're headed, you won't have any clue when you get there. 

Set your destination now.

2. Know Your Worth
For the most part, people don't have time to figure out how awesome you are. The bet way for us to know our worth is to be able to know why we are special. 

  • What makes you unique? The only person with your heart, voice, talents and interests is you. 
  • You are completely unique to any other living creature. Put it to use by embracing how special you are. Stand out like only you can.

3. Give a Crap
Nothing replaces the benefits of good old-fashioned Caring.  

  • Your life cannot be just about making money for the sake of making money.  Or power for the sake of power.  
  • People who strive for that wind up among living dead, loveless, friendless and surrounded by that which makes you feel nothing.  I do not wish this for anyone. 
  • If you want to make money because it furthers your circle of influence, allows for greater contribution or generosity...that's great. 
  • I am not perfect and neither are you. Our best is not only good enough, it is exactly the right amount. It means nothing, however, if we don't care.

4. Put Air In Your Wind Sock
Do things that make you feel energized and full of life. 

  • Eat well
  • Get plenty of solid sleep
  • Exercise, take care of that rockin' body 
  • Surround yourself with people who think the best of you.

Get inspired and stay inspired. Travel, road trip, re-arrange your furniture, burn some sage around your house or workplace. Get in your zone and stay there. 

5. Teamwork
There is no such thing as a "Self-made millionaire." No one got anywhere by themselves. It's a group effort, reaching goals.  We need help from the time we enter the world, until the time we leave it. 

  • You can acquire support for your cause, idea, business or adventure by creating an environment that makes people feel good. 
  • No one wants to be somewhere than makes them feel bad, taken advantage of or sad. Don't screw your biggest fans, because without them, you'd have never gotten where you are.  
  • Invite others along and participate in the journey of others. 
  • The easiest way to make friends is to smile and say something nice. No one gets mad over a compliment unless you don't want them on your team anyway.
Cheers to becoming #1 in each of your goals.
