Who is David Brett Williams
It was many years ago that I was asked to do a presentation. And I got scared, real scared. I was going to speak in front of 300 people. So I did what most of us would do. I got nervous every time I thought about it and I procrastinated.
And I complained about it to everyone that would listen. Most people sympathised,
“Oh poor you!”
One person suggested I do a course on public speaking. That course was the catalyst for my self-development journey.
I began to grasp how the thinking patterns we run influence our performance. I realised that while I had talent, I wasn’t making the most of my talent because I wasn’t making the best use of my mind.
My fear would stop me from taking opportunities or it would inhibit my performance. If I was doing that to myself, how many other people were doing that too?
So I decided to make a difference.
One of the greatest thrills you can experience is manufacturing success yourself. Knowing that you did it, you!
Grinding for your own rewards, persevering through the failures and missteps happen along the way.
When failures and missteps happen along your path to success, get back up, learn from them, and keep moving forward.
“My mission is to empower every individual I interact with
to achieve more.”

A Vision Of Successful OutcomesVision, in the business sense, is the ability to visualize successful outcomes. It is the ability to imagine positive results. It is, at its heart, the ability to lucidly dream of where you want to go with your business. Don’t be afraid to dream. As Henry Ford once said, if you think you can do something or if you think you can’t do something, you’re right. So, spend a few minutes each day visualizing where exactly you plan on going, and you plan on getting there. This is not daydreaming, far from it. [caption id="attachment_5468" align="aligncenter" width="400"] "You need to have a vision. To have the ability to see the invisible. If you can see the invisible, then you can achieve the impossible." - David Brett-Williams[/caption] This is focused development, scheduling and organization. Plan your day by seeing the optimum outcomes. This is the same process that athletes use to hone their performance. When you imagine yourself succeeding, you are more likely to actually succeed. Remember, if you don’t take the time to build your dreams, someone will hire you to take the time to build theirs.
Focus And Endurance For Your CareerIn any activity or endeavour, it is essential to build endurance. Endurance is defined as the ability to focus on the task at hand and bring it successfully to conclusion. Some call it courage, and others call it strength or stamina. No matter what you call it though, endurance is the ability to persevere and get the job done, no matter what. Usually, when we speak of endurance, we’re referring to physical activity. Endurance is as important in the business world as it is anywhere else. [caption id="attachment_4161" align="aligncenter" width="401"] "Just because a man lacks the use of his eyes doesn't mean he lacks vision." - Stevie Wonder[/caption] In business circles, endurance usually takes the form of focus. Instead of physical prowess, it becomes the ability to concentrate successfully on a given task. Focus is a critical skill set for any business owner, especially in today’s fast-paced world where success often means keeping several equally important balls in the air at one time.
The Key To Successful FocusSo, how do you focus on multitasking? A situation where, by its very definition, several things are happening at once. Well, the key to successful focus is attention. When several things are happening simultaneously, you need to concentrate on only one thing at a time. This doesn’t mean that you bring one task to full completion before you start on another. [caption id="attachment_4234" align="aligncenter" width="401"] "Teamwork makes the dream work, but a vision becomes a nightmare when the leader has a big dream and a bad team." - John C. Maxwell[/caption] Instead, you spend just enough time on a given task to take it to the next stage of development, and then you turn your attention to another task. In some sense, it’s a little like being a mother duck with ducklings. You give your attention to the duckling that is farthest out of line, nudging it forward to where it should be before you turn your attention to the next little duck. Each duckling gets a measure of your focus, but none gets your full attention all the time. In this way, each task gets moved along in turn, and all are successfully completed in time.
Professional Success Requires PersistenceOk, let’s talk about persistence. For starters, how many old sayings, aphorisms and clichés are there about persistence? The early bird gets the worm. Slow and steady wins the race. If at first, you don’t succeed, try again. If life gives you lemons make lemonade. The list goes on and on. [caption id="attachment_3544" align="aligncenter" width="401"] "Vision without action is merely a dream. Action without vision just passes the time. Vision with action can change the world." - Joel A. Barker[/caption] The reason that there are so many old sayings about persistence is twofold: First, it’s an essential element in success and second, it an element of success that gives a lot of people a lot of trouble. Something as essential and troublesome as persistence deserves a lot of clichéd sayings and a lot of attention. The problem with the road to success is that many people only picture the destination, not the journey.
The Vision Of Success As A Lifelong ProcessWhen they do this, they not only fail to see that real success is not a destination (it’s a lifelong process), but they also fail to see the potential problems that routinely occur when striving for success. When these problems occur, the unprepared person is stopped dead in their tracks. In their confusion, they forget where they were going and why and instead head back to where they came from. When you prepare for and anticipate the setbacks that can and will happen on the journey to success, you are ready to repair, rethink and re-engage. The persistent person understands that failure is a temporary condition that affects everyone at one time or another before they reach their goal. They also understand that failure and setback teach powerful lessons that ultimately make you stronger. As Gandhi said, strength does not come through winning. Instead, strength comes through failure. When you struggle and decide not to quit, that is strength. It is also persistence and points up why every successful business owner understands that setbacks are opportunities in disguise. Simply stay true to your vision.
An Outstanding Or A Fixed MindsetMost people, more or less, fall in one camp or the other. People with an outstanding mindset tend to have a desire to learn from life. This desire leads to the ability to embrace challenges, to overcome setbacks, to see effort as worth the results, to accept criticism and to admire and learn from the successes of others. [caption id="attachment_5774" align="aligncenter" width="400"] "The more efficient you are, the better you feel and the more you will use your talent in conjunction with your outstanding mindset to produce outstanding results." - David Brett-Williams[/caption] These behaviours allow native intelligence to grow throughout a lifetime. People with an outstanding mindset are believers in free will. And this belief allows them to achieve their goals time and time again. People with a fixed mindset tend to have a desire to appear smart, with a corresponding fear of looking foolish.
The Downsides Of A Fixed MindsetTheir desire leads them to avoid challenges, to give up easily, to see extra effort as wasted, to ignore or reject criticism and to envy and resent the success of others. These behaviours tend to limit native intelligence to a fixed amount. People with a fixed mindset often plateau early in life and fail to have, let alone reach, fixed goals. The good news is that an outstanding mindset can be cultivated relatively quickly by changing some critical behaviours. First of all, you have to decide to choose growth over stagnation. You also have to be willing to take affirmative action and begin to accept challenges and criticism and learning from both. An excellent way to start is by developing the philosophy of “yet”. This simple step simple attaches the word “yet” to the end of every negative thought. As in “That will never work, yet…” or “It’s probably not worth going, yet…” This simple trick opens up the possibility for growth, and that possibility leads to changed behaviour that actually does cause the development of the outstanding mindset.
Success In Business Requires FlexibilityThere is nothing more stifling to success than rigid thinking. Rigid thinking leads to rigid behaviours, and rigid behaviours lead to dead ends, blind alleys and creative cul de sacs. In other words, while there is a certain amount of comfort to routine, too much routine can choke off all chances that you will be able to reach your business goals successfully. Why? The answer is simple. [caption id="attachment_5758" align="aligncenter" width="402"] "People of limited ability sometimes achieve outstanding success because they have an outstanding mindset and don't know when to quit. Most men people because they are made up their mind to." - David Brett-Williams[/caption] The world, including the business world, is constantly changing. Rigid thinking and rigid behaviour, by definition, are resistant to change. Therefore, rigidity, in thought and action, spells obsolescence in the business world. Everyone else moves forward while you are left behind in the dust. So, what’s the answer to this problem? In a word, flexibility.
Information Is PowerIn today’s world, information is power, money and control all rolled into one. The fast and free flow of information is what makes this possible. Everything changes quickly. What is a successful formula or a popular product in one cycle can be, and usually is, old news in the next. The only way to successfully stay on top of this bucking bronco of information and use it to your advantage is to be flexible enough to roll with the changes and that requires an outstanding mindset. Flexibility is easy to achieve. But only as long as you are not too tied down to any single idea, product, service or manner of delivery. If you keep up with changing market conditions through judicious use of the flow of information, you can easily spot new trends and adopt them successfully. And usually before your competitors have had time to act. The only trick is not to fear change and, instead, embrace it. If change is the only reality in the business world, then, to be successful in that world, change as to be your reality as well.
Cultivate Your Creative MusclesCreativity can be elusive. It’s not something that you can summon at will. When it happens, it strikes like lightning. Yet, like lightning, it can be maddeningly unpredictable. However, because creativity is an essential element of a successful business mindset, it is necessary to understand the creative process and how you, the business owner, can cultivate your own creative juices. [caption id="attachment_5563" align="aligncenter" width="399"] "Outstanding leaders make it a focal point to boost the self-esteem of their team and help them develop and outstanding mindset. When people believe in themselves, it's amazing what they can accomplish." - David Brett-Williams[/caption] The creative process is mainly internal and unconscious. No one ever wakes up and says “Hey! Today I’m going to be creative.” Creativity is all about taking in a lot of influences. And letting those influences combine, ferment and morph in your subconscious. Together, they form a sort of mental potting soil. And this is where new and different ideas have a chance to germinate and grow.
Developing An Outstanding MindsetThe more things you learn, read, see and hear the more creative soil you can produce. So, as a business owner who wants to be creative, the best thing you can do is get out there and in the world and open yourself up to new experiences. Be curious about many different things. Develop hobbies. Challenge yourself. Do the unexpected. The more you push your own personal envelope and develop your outstanding mindset, the more you are charging your own creative batteries. When those batteries are charged, it is much more likely that inspiration will strike. Who knows where that new idea will take you?
