2. Know the effects of your problem/s. Doing this will set you free. What are the results of being a procrastinator? An overspender? A couch potato?
3. Evaluate the root/s of your problems. Ist it your mental attitude? your physical well-being? your financial status? your lack of education and training? Knowing the root/s of your problem can help you come up with solutions.
4. Distinguish the role you play in your problems. What bad habits do you have that are causing all these? Are you fully aware of your shortcomings? Do you fail to do the needed change to make your life better?
5. Specify your desires. What do you want to know after knowing the answers to the first 5 steps of overcoming obstacles? Do you want to take action? Do you want to improve yourself? Do you intend to undergo personal development training or to seek the help of a mentor?
6. Identify your options. Since you already know what you want with regards to your problems, it’s but proper to check the available options for you. Are there currently scheduled personal development training that you can join? Do you know of experts in your industry who could mentor you? Do you have the tools that can help you manage your time effectively?
7. Learn winning strategies. In everything you do, always aim for the win.

8. Build and strengthen relationships. This final step involves a huge percentage of yourself. Life is all about creating and maintaining relationships so never burn bridges. Do you got your own team? Take time to know each of them better. Met someone new lately and still have his card? Why not call him and arrange a meet-up?
