Foundational Principles of Success

When you are in the kitchen and getting ready to bake cookies, specific ingredients must be used and steps must be followed to achieve the desired outcome. In the same way, there is a recipe for success in business and personal goals.

Are you following the recipe to advance your career and achieve the business success you desire? Here are a few essential elements that should be in your toolbox:


In my opinion, integrity may be the most overlooked factor in performance today. Everyone likes to think that they have integrity. But the truth is that many people sabotage themselves regularly. As a result, performance suffers.

If you want to achieve higher levels of success, then it’s necessary to build a foundation of integrity. Explore what it really means and how it affects performance. You need to be able to see where you are sabotaging yourself, because you can’t fix a problem if you don’t recognize it.


At first glance, accountability might seem like a crutch. But we often perform better when other people are counting on us. Build accountability into your processes, and you will have more consistency in the actions that lead to your desired results.

There is a lot going on day-to-day in your business. Accountability helps you focus on where you are going. Not only does accountability give you a structure to lean on others to help you accomplish your goals. But it also offers a way to share in the victory.


You’ve heard it before: to succeed, you must have the right mindset. When you can access and manipulate your mindset in the right way, it can make a profound difference in your success. You’re not just faking it or pretending.

The right mindset gets to the source, allowing you to create a new mindset appropriate for the situation. Mindset creates the opportunity for success, even if it is something you’ve never dealt with before. This mindset must be meaningful and authentic to who you really are.


All leadership begins with self-leadership. First, you must tap into who you really are. Then, when you align who you are with a noble quest, and clear away suboptimal habits and actions, then you will show up in the world as a leader – like never before!


Once you are clear on who you really are, then choices become far simpler. You’ll find yourself taking on bigger challenges because you feel the drive and motivation to soar. You want to be fully expressed! Creating a clear vision for both your business and your life fuels the actions you take each day.
