“The true journey is one that is travelled with an inner GPS fully activated”. — Alexis Brooks
There are countless stories hidden in a person’s journey to success. This path to success is full of many inspirations, tough decisions, ups and downs, and the will to stay strong. From the top surface only success is visible, but if you look in-depth, behind it are buried many years of hard work and sacrifices that we often ignore.
To learn the secret of success in the true sense, it is important to know about the struggles made to reach here and the principles adopted in life. Victory always shows a golden dream, but in reality, these dreams come true for those, who focus on the principles adopted to reach here.
To become victorious, we must choose those formulas and habits of successful people, which they adopt in life to reach the top. One of many such formulas is the CAMERA formula, about which we will know today.
The word Camera consists of 6 letters, each letter representing the unique quality essential to achieve success.
C – Consistency
A – Accountability
M – Mentorship
E – E-Mastermind
R – Reward
A – Action
Let’s start decoding each word.
“Success isn’t always about greatness. It’s about consistency. Consistent hard work leads to success. Greatness will come”. Dwayne Johnson
Consistency means regularity and uniformity in anything. Can you imagine success without being consistent in work? — No way. Here consistency is not limited to products, it’s mentioned for everything right from the individual performances to the business strategies, work systems and the procedures followed. Lack of steadiness in any area makes it difficult to attain success. Businesses that are categorized successful have maintained consistency in their systems, and product qualities to get this tag.
Frequent changes create confusion for the team as well as the customers, negatively impacting the business. Consistent behaviour, on the contrary, builds trust, increases productivity and pushes you towards success.
“Accountability is the measure of a leader’s height”. — Jeffrey Benjamin
Taking responsibility for our action and decision refers to accountability. In business or at the workplace where a team is working under us, the scope of accountability gets expanded. Taking responsibility for a department or organization’s failure and success makes you a great leader. People working for such leaders do work more confidently and efficiently. Following leaders, this habit of accountability gets inculcated in the team as well making everyone a responsible person.
“A mentor is someone who sees more talent and ability within you, than you see in yourself, and helps bring it out of you”. — Bob Proctor
Mentoring is defined as advising or training a person. A mentor could be anyone who has greater experience and knowledge than the person being mentored. With their practical examples and needful suggestions, a person can learn and grow as a great businessman.
Mentoring someone benefits both the persons involved. While the person being mentored is achieving dreams under the guidance of mentors, they get their business skills improved.
E-mastermind is a way of getting connected with like-minded people. Like-minded people mean a group of people with the same goals, targets, dreams or profession. Joining these groups help in discussing the issues, plans, strategies in better ways.
A day or time can be fixed for E-Mastermind when all the important aspects of business can be discussed. It is extremely beneficial in learning from people with experiences, strategies, solutions on various matters linked with the same goal.
“Notice the small things. The rewards are inversely proportional”. — Liz Vassey
Who doesn’t like to get appreciated? Rewards not only give happiness but also motivate them for performing better than ever.
Divide your target into small goals and reward yourself by celebrating each small achievement. The pleasure of getting rewarded boosts our energy and keep the passion alive to work more.
“Vision without action is merely a dream. Action without vision just passes the time. Vision with action can change the world”. — Joel A. Barker
Knowledge without implementation is mere a wastage. Gaining knowledge is important but taking action is equally essential. How can we achieve success by sitting idle? After understanding the process, the only choice left to get the desired outcome is action. Small — small steps taken towards the goal make a big difference and mark us as achievers one day.
