• Beach hikeWhen planning for success I focus on three key areas – health, wealth and happiness.  These are the foundations that I want to master in business and in my personal life. And, as I’ve said before business is personal. Therefore, what you do in your personal life will directly impact your business and vice versa.  What is most important to you when planning for success? What KEY areas do you focus on?

    I find it’s important to allocate time to planning, visioning and getting clear on how you want your life to look. It’s also VITAL to take action. You can wish for something your entire life and never get it if you don’t take action.

    Here are some tips I use when focusing on health, wealth and happiness. I’ve also included a few actions items that might spark some ideas for you.

    1) Health: Get moving. My best advice is to eat well (real food, not processed JUNK –don’t even get me started on what’s REALLY on the shelves in the grocery store) and to exercise. Personally I LOVE to go on walks.I’m also interested in yoga, weight training and maybe even kick boxing. I think it’s a great idea to try new things.  So, get MOVING. You’ll be glad that you did. Action item: List ONE thing you can commit to doing that will improve your health every day.

    2) Wealth: Focus on wealth building activities that bring you security. While money doesn’t have to be your main focus, you should be moving your business forward in some way every day and this does mean generating CASH. One of my best tips is to build relationships with like-minded individuals who are serious about their business, too. It’s been said that often people will only invest as much in YOU as you are willing to invest in yourself. That’s why I invest in mentorship and training programs that stretch me to grow and expand. So, invest in you, build relationships and move your business forward. Action item: List one thing you can do every day to move your business forward (could be as simple as picking up the phone to make KEY connections that will help generate cash) and do it.

    3) Happiness: This one is simple. Have FUN.Do things you enjoy. Travel. Enjoy wine. Laugh with friends. Go to a movie. Dance. Listen to live music. Take an art class. Go wine tasting. You cannot take life too seriously and if you are not happy, something is seriously wrong. Action item: List one thing you LOVE to do but don’t do often enough. Do it. TODAY.

    Success doesn’t happen by accident. It doesn’t happen in a straight line. AND it certainly isn’t going to happen if you don’t plan for it and then take action.

      Somehow I knew you would work wine in there, LOL! 😉 Seriously, though, your advice is so true, and I know you live it, the results show for you, too! Thanks, Lisa.

    2. YES!

      1. Health: I exercise regularly (I LOVE kickboxing).
      2. Wealth: I invest in a high level mentorship program so that I continue to learn and grow and share that knowledge with my clients. I also grow my relationships with incredible people like you. Both have done wonders (and continue to do wonders) for my business.
      3. Happiness: Friends, family, time AWAY from business (even though I love it)…it’s why I do what I do.

      Thanks for sharing.

    3. Great tips Lisa – I would also add a fourth to your list as I always like to focus on my quadruple bottom line –
      IQ + EQ + Body + Vision – mind, body, spirit and vision all together!

      This is great. Firmly believe you will have what you focus on. Therefore when people are always negative they bring to themselves more negativity. By following your method people will create their own positive mindset and outcomes.
