Hard work alone just makes you tired. Passion is overrated. So what is the key to success? We can state it in four words.

We discuss the key to success on The BIGG Success Show. See the summary of that conversation below.

We did this show as a reminder to ourselves. We hope it helps you too.

What’s the key to success? We can reduce it to four words.

The key to success is…

…focused, consistent, daily activity.

That’s right – activity is required to reach BIGG success. Specifically, three activities. Let’s take at look at each one of them.

1) Focused

Busy does not equal successful. Hard work alone won’t get you anything but tired.

You have to get results. You get the results you want by focusing on activities that move you to the next level.

Stop doing everything else!

There’s a tremendous opportunity cost to wasting time. You can’t get the time back. You’ll always be a step behind where you could have been.

2) Consistent

You’re passionate about what you do. But passion is overrated.

Let’s face it – there are days when you don’t feel like doing it. And it’s easy to coast for a short time when you’re your own boss.

But on today, off tomorrow leads to nowhere. You must operate at 100% every single day.

That creates momentum. Momentum is a powerful force that can work for you or against you.

So on those days when you just don’t feel the vibe, think about momentum. Then act!

Pick one important thing on your to-do list. Make it something somewhat simple and quick. And get it done.

Then pick another one. Check it off.

Next, get away from your desk for a few minutes. Stretch, do some calisthenics, or go for a walk. Then get back to your pursuit of BIGG success.

3) Daily

You can be a BIGG success today. In fact, you must.

BIGG success doesn’t just happen. You make it happen.

You make it happen today. Not tomorrow. Not next week. Today.

Focused, consistent, daily activity creates positive momentum. Positive momentum compounds over time into BIGG success!

Here’s to your BIGG success!
