Be, Do, Have.

Our success in life can be summed up using these three words in their correct order. The ordering of these three words will heavily influence the outcomes that we achieve.

Compare these two sentences:

HAVE : DO : BE

'When I have a more profitable business I will do great things with my family and be a great Wife / Husband / Mother / Father... I just need to work a bit harder first, sort my business, deal with my clients, finish these projects and then everything will fall into place.'

If we re-think the order we can change the priority and focus.

BE : DO : HAVE

'In order to be a great Wife / Husband / Mother / Father, I need to do things like work smarter so I can have more time with my family. This doesn't mean I'll let my clients down; if anything I can share my smarter way of working with my clients so they too can be who they want to be.'
When we focus on who we need to be first, we immediately start to act in a way consistent with that role (do). The things we have become the bi-product of who we are as opposed to the things we have to do before we can be who we want to.

So who do you really want to be? Start being that person today - in how you think, what you say and how you act. Let the be drive what you do from now on. You'll be amazed how quickly you'll get what you want (the have).
