4 ingredient to success

Success is a simple economic equation

  1. Find out what you want
  2. Work out how much it costs
  3. Pay for it 

Peter Horsfield – a financial planner in Cairns shares with us his 4 traits to become a successful financial planner 


An idea is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration 

1 Be the Last man / woman standing 

I’ve always thought of success as the last man standing! Over a period of time – your competitors will lose interest , Mess up ,lose passion and eventually stop turning up! 

As they say “when the going gets tough – the tough get going 

Be Nimble and willing to take advantage of opportunities 

Be in the game and be willing to take the opportunities when they leave and handle the acquisition and integration  ! Be nimble and do what works!

2. Celebrate Successes 

It’s the journey that is the magic – not the destination. 

Celebrate successes and milestones with your clients and teams – it’s all about relationships – that’s the magic and reward that is awesome. 

Make sure what you do aligns with your purpose, your pulse , your why and your values – Love and respect your community and stakeholders.

if you don’t  – you will be that person that stops turning up .

Christine Mcdougall talks about “precession” – it’s the result and pathway when one plans and takes action – the path is not what you expect – but invariably worth it .

3. Time is a limited constraint – use it wisely 

Remember the 4 days quadrant 

  • Urgent and important – do it 
  • Urgent and not important – defer it
  • Not urgent and important – delegate it
  • Not urgent and not important – dump it

procrastination – is something that I am really good at – why?

4. It’s all about TRUST 

It is common to every single individual, relationship, family, team, economy, country and nation. 

If TRUST is lost – it will destroy the most powerful government, successful business, greatest friendship and the deepest love.

On the other hand, if developed and leveraged, this one thing has the potential to create unparalleled success and prosperity in every dimension life has to offer?

This one thing that is key is TRUST.
