Are You Prepared For Success? Raising the Barr Weekly Memo: Issue No. 86

Raising the Barr is a weekly memo, which is always pithy, powerful and succinct. It focuses on innovative ideas by maximizing your life and business while leveraging strategy, content, technology and the web, to help you transform the success.

This week’s reflection point: I just had a fantastic conversation with one of my dear clients, John Boggs, a retired Colonel in the U.S. Marine Corps, a great thinker and a leadership expert. As we were exchanging ideas on creating success, John shared with me that one of his favorite questions he poses to his clients is: “Let’s think big. There are no right or wrong answers and no obstacles. What do you see? What does it look like?”

Additionally, one of the questions I like to ask my clients and myself is: “Are you prepared for success?” I’ve come to realize that most of those I talk with not only are not prepared for success, they are unable to articulate what success looks like. The ability to effectively identify and articulate such, will enable you to gain control in areas of: business, personal, relationships, strategy, mindset, physical and mental condition, emotional, self-esteem, self-improvement, support system, wealth, both financial and spiritual.

I acknowledge that it takes great courage and action to be successful but it all starts with your preparation towards it. Don’t let success surprise you because when it does, it is too late and it is likely to be short-lived.

This week’s tip: Take the time this week to think big and articulate what you see and what it looks like. Then, identify what needs to happen so you are prepared for success.
