Secrets of Success

secrets of success
You have a dream. And that dream is success.

But what is your definition of success?

Is it money? Wealth? Getting on top of the corporate ladder? Selling your Art? Public recognition? Earning a living doing what you love?

Success comes in many forms. Once you clearly know what you want, you can make plans, set goals and take steps towards achieving them.

But how do you actually make that happen? What are the practical steps you can take to turn your dreams into reality?

I call them 'secrets' of success, even though they are not intentionally kept secret from you, but not many people are aware of them or recognise them as vital components of the success formula.

These secrets of success are powerful actions you can take towards manifesting your goals:

1. Journaling

Journaling is about putting your vision, ideas and aspirations down on paper together with a step-by-step action plan on how to turn them into reality.

In the business world this is commonly known as a business plan, which is vital, if you need to apply for a start-up loan.

But as a creative and more intuitive soul, you can use more imaginative journaling. The key is to take stock every month and make adjustments if necessary.

If you want to use the Tarot for this purpose, you could try my Tarot for All Seasons workbook, which contains Tarot spreads through the year that help you focus and stay on the right track towards where you want to be.

For more intense and in-depth journaling, you can also use the Tarot Moon Journal to take into account astrological and in particular lunar influences.

If you don't yet feel confident in using the Tarot for life and business planning, then you might like the Shining Year Workbook.

Regular journaling is crucial not only towards success but also personal growth and development.

Quite often you will notice a pattern or habit that might help or hinder you while you are writing about it. You will reveal what is hidden and make what is unconscious rise to surface.

Don't believe me? I encourage you to give it a try.

2. Networking

Honestly, you can't do it all alone. You need to work with like-minded souls who are as driven and enthusiastic about achieving their dreams as you are.

There are some fantastic Mastermind groups out there, where individuals come together and support each other not only with helpful advice but also some emotional support when the going gets tough.

My online support group is the Shining Biz & Life Academy, where I've been a member since 2012, and over the last three years my Tarot biz has undergone a complete transformation. There are a wealth of eCourses and live training on offer. It's unconventional, but if you resonate with the design of what you see, then you will find that membership of the Academy may well be hugely beneficial.

Let's put it this way: I have renewed my membership since 2012 every year and will continue to do so in the future. I think that says a lot.

3. Perseverance

How many times have I seen people set their intentions, start their business and then give up six months or a year down the line, because they didn't make the money they hoped they were going to make?

Well, first there is a reason why they didn't reach their goal. See point 1 and 2. They probably didn't do regular self-assessment and tried do do it all by themselves without being accountable to a peer group that would actively support them.

Another reason can be they needed an income stream to sustain their livelihood. That's why it's unwise to give up the day job too quickly, and it may be necessary to combine your aspirations with a part-time job to keep you afloat.

Most of all, a sustainable business doesn't create itself overnight. It takes time. I started self-employment in 2006, and my income from my Tarot business was unsustainable until 2012, when I started to turn a corner. So until then I had to subsidise my income with other income streams and part-time work.

If you really want it, you can do it, but remember to implement these three secrets of success to give yourself the best chance to succeed.
