Here’s a checklist of behaviors common to successful people to support you in achieving your own Success Mindset.

1. Make the ‘Decision’ to be Successful - Success is a ‘Decision’! …
Success starts with a Decision – to BE Successful! Success isn’t a journey or an end result – when you decide you want something, and mean it with your heart, the journey is what happens as a result of that decision. And, what a journey it is! …

2. Recognize that Success is an ‘Inside’ Job –
You must choose to make the changes and shifts on the ‘inside’ before you can make real changes and achieve the success you desire. Our minds are like a big filing cabinet – you need to insert new positive files to empower yourself to get what you want. Be committed to your ongoing personal development.

3. Set Goals –
No matter how far fetched, work on your higher Goals. Winners do!

Write down your Goals and Desires and review them daily. Write your Goals into specific Action plans. Break your Action plans into activity lists and chunk them into small steps (at least 3 next steps). Get rid of the time wasters.

4. Take Action!
Successful people know what they need to do to get what they want and they waste no time taking action and doing it … Effective Inspired Action. Success likes speed ...

Just take action.You'll feel fabulous when you do. Make it simple, take the angst out of it, and just do it. It'll make up for a handful of imperfections. Aim for progress, not perfection.

When you take that step, it will shift and move everything forward – you’ll see magical things start to line up and happen in your Life.

5. Make Smart Choices to Support Your Success -
Ask yourself - will this choice empower me or disempower me? Successful people make choices that support achieving the life of their dreams. The more choices you have and create for yourself the more success you’ll have. By the shere fact that the more you do and try, the more likely you are to achieve the results you’re after. Again, it’s a numbers game. Refine and find-tune as you go and learn from your mistakes.

6. Overcome Procrastination -
Be clear on what it would mean if you did it! Don’t put your life on hold – build a life that’s meaningful ... Successful people know how to overcome procrastination.

7. See Opportunity –
Be savvy about recognizing opportunities around you. Be aware that an obstacle is often an unrecognized opportunity.

Successful people know how to make their weaknesses work for them. Embrace your weaknesses or shortcomings and turn them into teaching others how you overcame them and triumphed – tell your story ...

8. Know How To Pull and Attract Resources Around You –
Recognize that your weakness or something you hate or aren’t good at doing, is someone else’s passion. Build a network of people who can help you.

9. Keep Learning New Things – Constantly! …
Make this a lifetime habit. Successful people know what they need to learn and equip themselves to get what they want or move to their next success level. They never stop learning. Once you believe you know it all – you’re stationary. The 4 most dangerous words are - "I already know that."

10. Look for Role Models –
Success leaves clues. You need to look at others who have succeeded and gain access to those skills. When you know what the skills are that you need, you can go about getting them.

Successful people admire and model other successful people.

11. Participate in Mastermind Groups –
This is a powerful way to move to your next level by getting together and working with likeminded people. They act as a force field holding the energy of your intention for you – whether learning new behaviors, sharing knowledge, growing businesses, or marketing businesses together. No one can succeed to their full potential without ‘community’.

*** Here’s a Bonus Behavior -
