#298: 12 Elements that Dictate Success


elements dictate success

There are people in this world who, frankly, do not have reasonable values, morals, or lifestyles, yet they succeed, prosper, and impact their environment with tremendous effectiveness.

How does this happen?

Simple. There are laws at work which transcend my opinion or stance on certain things.

If a person abides by certain principles and executes on those principles and laws, they will reap the rewards of those principles.

It’s so important for those of us who do have high standards, values, etc. to be influencing those around us, and succeeding in what we do and how we live. Therefore, we also must adopt, follow, and execute on certain principles!

Today, I want to share a few principles and factors which are paramount to success.

Tips, Tools, And Resources: 

Say It, Mail It App

Have you ever been driving when you have an awesome idea, or maybe you’re in the gym when you think of a task you need to relay to your assistant?

How do you communicate these ideas or delegations safely and in ONE STEP?

Enter the SAY IT, MAIL IT app.

This app is a lifesaver! Rather than trying to type a text or a reminder while driving, simply record and send!

1.  Strategic Influencers Mastermind

We have a few openings in our next-level mastermind group for Strategic Influencers just like YOU. The purpose of this group is to connect emerging leaders for sharing ideas, purposeful collaboration, relational and business accountability, and ultimately, each member realizing “NEXT-LEVEL PERFORMANCE!”

This is not a marketing effort to get people into a course. In fact, this is not a course and it is not coaching. I’m looking to grow my businesses in a co-operative environment and also share my knowledge and experience with those who are ready to take their life and their leadership to the next level.

For more information on this incredible opportunity, go to …


To apply for membership with the Strategic Influencers Mastermind Group, please click the link below, and you will be directed to an online application. Once you’ve completed the application, someone from our office will contact you to set up a short phone interview. Our desire is to serve you with excellence. The application process ensures you have all of your questions answered, and you and I are confident this group is a good fit for all involved. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
