How To Get Into And Stay In The Success Zone
I am sure you have heard the expression “in the zone,” particularly as it applies to athletes or artists who are unflappable as they focus on their goal. It is a positive feeling connected to a concrete growth reality. It can also be called “a state of flow”, where there is smooth progress towards abundance and love prevails.
In this article. We want to share some tips with you that will help you understand the success zone.
Sometimes you can be performing in the zone and nothing gets in your way. Other times, you may think you are doing everything right, but you are not really feeling “in the zone”. Your perception of the zone is unique to you and it changes as you change and it is specific to different areas and seasons of your life.
At this point of my life, being in the zone for me involves helping people, being committed without effort, calm, enthusiastic, on a comfortable self-managed schedule and financially sufficient. All that surrounded by the love and support of my family and friends.
Down below you will find 4 tips to build the habit of success and get “in the zone.”
Achieve Success by Expecting It
The path from where you are to where you want to be is not always smooth or straight. But when you hit those inevitable bumps in the road, your character, commitment, and attitude will help get you “in the zone” and keep you there. So expect success, work towards it and you’ll get there. This is the law of attraction!
Success Breeds Success
Having momentum is intrinsically linked to the zone. It is the ability to continually succeed and build on the past successes you’ve had, again and again.
Most people understand that when they have one big or small success, it encourages them and makes them believe they can achieve anything. Salespeople know it, and they strive for it. When you have momentum, nothing can get in your way.
We can all understand that we can choose to be happy or unhappy, that our choices will affect our lives for the better or worse.
When you opt to be happy, you also choose to differentiate with the accomplishments in life that exude who you are and who you have striven to be.
The gap between those two should not be wide, otherwise we could have a congruence problem getting in the way of success.
You can choose to look on the positive side, just as you can choose success. Remember, success is more than just wealth.
Choose the positive side of things and remember to live your successes, and failures are just lessons with the negative emotional load related to not accomplishing a specific goal.
You heart knows better, follow your intuition
If you have a plan that seems to go against conventional wisdom, but you highly suspect that it will work, I invite you to follow your intuition. If you don’t use it, you lose it. You will be surprised how many times you were right.
Intuition is one of those subconscious processes that allow us to know outcomes before they happen. Intuition can be directed towards information, processes or people.
When it comes to predictions we are supposed to blindly trust the “experts”, they are seldom wrong, from medical experts who predict prognosis incorrectly, to future-trending experts who foretell the wrong trends and cost corporations millions and the fall goes down on taxpayers end-up paying for it.
Let’s develop the habit of looking at the facts and outcomes in front of your eyes, and do our own thinking.

The importance of attitude
Your attitude reflects your state of mind and your disposition to life. It opens doors, influences outcomes and relationships with close family, co-workers and friends.
An optimist will see opportunity in difficulties, while a pessimist will see difficulty in the same circumstances.
Where your attention goes, your energy flows. You must choose where you will focus your attention: if you choose negativity, you will doom yourself with obstacles to achieving your goals and being successful, that is guaranteed.
So, how do you begin to think positively if you’re a natural pessimist? Well, I don’t really believe there are natural pessimists, just people who have been consistently taught how to consider the darkest side of every cloud.
You cannot change the fact that a problem exists, but you can change your perception of that problem and learn from the opportunity that lies within the circumstances.
A positive attitude helps you begin to see that problems are a fact of life and that your job is to find a way over, around, under, or through the obstacles, as efficient as possible.
When you are upbeat and consider with positivity, how a problem can be put behind you step by step, progressively. Because It is not a race, you do it at your own pace. If you celebrate each little win, then it becomes easy to be optimistic.
Cynicism is another killer when it comes to attitude. It is pessimism’s cousin and makes you think everything is suspect and everyone has an ulterior motive. It never looks at someone handing you a piece of candy as just nice, it always makes you feel like there must be a negative reason why you’re being handed the candy.
Unrealistic expectations may lead to cynical attitudes. Many people expect great and wonderful things to happen to them with little-to-no work on their part.
They expect things to fall from the sky into their laps. When it doesn’t happen as they expect, they become suspicious of others who have achieved success and ultimately, cynical.
In his book, The Winning Attitude, John C. Maxwell, noted author and speaker tells us that attitude is:
- The “advanced man” of our true selves
- Has inward roots but outward fruits
- Is our best friend or worst enemy
- Is more honest and more consistent than our words
- Is an outward look based on past experiences
- Is a thing that draws people to us or repels them
- Is never content until it is expressed
- Is the librarian of our past
- Is the speaker of our present
- Is the prophet of our future
Your attitude is what allows you to harness the power of your thoughts and words when setting your course for success.
At the SosaLifeCoach Community, we use positive affirmations daily: remind yourself that a stumbling block is temporary and that you will overcome it; admit to yourself that you are courageous and able to move on when others cannot agree with your life vision and your goals.
As you get used to doing this, you will find optimism and positive thinking by your side most of the time. Then, inevitably, your reality will manifest itself at those high vibrational frequencies and you will experience success.

The right skills
Attitude is extremely important for your success. But even the most enthusiastic and overly positive individual selling goods, for example, will fall short of their goal of success, if they aren’t educated about the sales process, what I mean is having appropriate sales skills.
It doesn’t matter if you want to be a college president or an auto mechanic, your educational needs are specific to your occupation. So, we can agree that
If you have advanced doctoral degrees and no ability to educate, communicate, and encourage others, you’re not likely to end up as a college president.
Similarly, if you are an auto mechanic who doesn’t have the latest education about newer cars and all of the computerized systems in them, you won’t reach the top of your potential and be successful in your field.
There are some fields in which education is not socially esteemed, professional sports is one of them. Young athletes are told to have an education “in case you get hurt,” but many college football players, for example, drop-out their senior year and graduation, after being a winner of the NFL draft.
If you consider a football player who majored in business during college, and successfully completed graduation. If they improved themselves with specific-knowledge about retail sport-related equipment; they would be in a much better place for success.
If the NFL athlete was injured on the field and had to retire suddenly, they will have an alternative career plan ready to fall back on, as celebrity-endorsing of sports products in alignment with their occupation.
You may have noticed that we need a synergy between skill and profession. We can also say that you build a set of skills as you make progress in your professional education. In this modern world, we have a lot of choices and it can be easy to get scattered and out of focus.
This can lead us to take courses that are not in alignment with our professional focus, which can be problematic to achieve success.
Education for a particular skill needs to be fueled by motivation, which is generated by passion. You find your passion “doing meaningful things”. It arises from your devotion to actions you love to do, that end-up generating currencies and positive energy in your life.
Finding the right skill can be difficult, mostly if you have the ability to learn fast, different kinds of things. One of the most important pieces of information you need to know about yourself is your passion.
Your passion is an action you do or a role you perform and when that action is happening, you are in a comfortable creative or productive state of mind. It does not feel like you are working and your perception of time can be altered.
When you invest energy training the right skills to make your passion happen, then your life flows in the direction of happiness and success.

How to move past fear
If fear is stopping you from doing things, know you are not alone. Many of us become prisoners from our reactions to different perceived threats. I am personally terrified of heights, and there are times when simply thinking positively won’t move me past my anxiety. There are times when simply pushing through is the only option. In this article, I will share with you some useful tips to face your fears.
The Evangelical speaker Joyce Meyer says, “If you’re afraid to do it, just do it afraid.” No one will blame you for being fearful, but you may regret letting that fear immobilize you for the rest of your life. So no matter what it takes, keep moving until it’s done.
Fear is much like a quagmire—it slurps at your feet and if you stand on the same spot long enough, it sucks you down. Once you are stuck in a negative spiral of fear, you can’t think clearly, your body goes on survival mode. It is hard to get out of, but it is possible.
If fear takes a hold of you as you are aiming for success, there are four ways to interrogate the issue, which will help you understanding and overcoming your fears:
First, consider the source. Where did the fear come from? Have you been dwelling on difficulties and ignoring opportunities? Have you been listening to cynics and pessimists, instead of coaching yourself with positive words and being around optimistic people? Are you doing your best to get away from people and situations that drag you down?
If the fear comes from inside and it disrupts your ability to function, then we suggest you address it, with professional help. If the internal fear is not overly disruptive, then you can probably work with that.
Second, take your checklist and note what you have accomplished. Look at your list of goals and the baby steps you’re taking to get there, and on a separate sheet of paper (or a separate document on your computer), begin to list everything you have accomplished. This will begin to empower you to keep moving and get used to not living with fear.
Being in a state of gratitude towards yourself will bring you more success.
Third, take stock of your talents and skills. Fear often tells us that we “don’t have what it takes…” Show fear as the liar it is: list your skills, all your positive attributes. Then look at the problem again, after you have a new appreciation for your real talents and abilities.
Fourth, don’t underestimate the power of prayer. Regardless of your spiritual beliefs, there is an amazing power that comes from releasing your fear to the quantum field.
Fear is a signal of imbalance that connects your body and your mind. If you allow that alarm to do its job, we get the message, something happens and then let the fear go, then you don’t bottle fear up, you let it go and that is how a healthy mind works well and remains balanced.
Finally, remember this acronym when facing persistent fear:
- F= False
- E= Evidence
- A= Appearing
- R= Real
For that’s really what fear is in many cases, a false representation of something that may actually not present any danger at all. Once you know these things, you’ll be able to move past your fear and onto the next step you need to be successful!
When you are in a state of fear, there is something that changes immediately, and that is how you breathe. You may breathe shallowly, sigh frequently and stop breathing without noticing, when you are exposed to negative content on your phone, or your mind.
At our SosaLifeCoach Community, we have tricks to share with you that can help you abort an extreme fear situation or a panic attack. If you are in a decisive mental state aiming resolution, you can drive the whole focus of your attention to your breath.
In your mind, you must disconnect your senses from the current environment and focus all your energies in inhaling love and exhaling the emotions of frustration. Slow deep breathing is calming and changes your physiological state of anger into what is called the relaxation response. Which allows you to get into a space of neutrality, acceptance and willingness.

The right philosophy
Philosophy is the love of wisdom and, you wonder why it always comes back to the ageless truths? Mostly because the truth is ageless and doesn’t change with the wind, they are also core human values that remain valid and relevant generation after generation.
The right philosophy can be defined by a number of phrases, but it always comes back to the “golden rule”: you can have whatever you want in life, if you just help others get what they want.
This isn’t some pie-in-the-sky-feel-good theory, this is practical and will be strongly linked to your success, no matter what field you’re in. It shows that all aspects of success, business, personal, social, etc. are linked together and they all have an impact on your financial and overall success.
Most of us want the same things in life; to be happy, healthy, to have at least some degree of prosperity, to be secure and have friends, peace, to have a happy family life and hope in the future.
Abraham Maslow described it as the Hierarchy of Needs:
We all must have our physiological needs and be healthy in our bodies.
Then, we need shelter, safety and security; and we also need belonging, love, and friends. We also have a need for esteem, social recognition and acceptance.
Finally, our need for “self-actualization”: achieving our highest potential, including our creative expression.
His book explains how these values are part of a pyramid that needs to be solid at the base and progressively grow, all the way to the top, as we develop as human beings.
No matter what your faith practices are, the golden rule is inherent in each religion; each just uses different words. The philosophy is that you need to care for others, as you want to be cared for yourself. You will find success when you consider the needs of others as not only achievable, but also enjoyable.
As this becomes a regular practice for you, it becomes the source of a spiral of love that unravels everyday around you. This style of practice is also a good marker that your ambition has not made you lose your essence.
Remember: success doesn’t happen in the vacuum of work only. It’s something that touches every aspect of your life and the right philosophy will help get you there!
