Even people that don’t like sport – know the dynasty that the New England Patriots have created.
In the last three years, they’ve appeared in 3 straight Super Bowls and won two of them.
In the last two decades, they’ve won 6 of their 9 appearances.
The best part is there is nothing fancy about their success.
It’s simple, consistent, and repeatable.
All of their strategies can be used in your own life and business too..
Here are five ways you can hack their success by modeling it in your own life and business.
5 Foundational Success Habits For Life & Business
Have the Right Fundamentals | Lasting Success
The Patriots have won six Super Bowls in nine years with a myriad of different players. That’s what makes their run so impressive. Sure, they’ve had Tom Brady but otherwise, their roster has changed a lot.
So how do they make it happen? By having the right set of fundamentals they teach all new players.
In your life, how strong are your fundamentals?
Are you constantly setting goals and working toward them? Are your daily habits setting you up for long term success or failure?
Whether you’re trying to build an epic business or create an amazing life, start with the fundamentals.
Surround Yourself With The Right People | Lasting Success
The Patriots are known for drafting and acquiring players with high integrity and professionalism. Rarely do they have toxic players that make negative headlines. They have the right people in the locker room to build a dynasty.
So what’s your circle of people doing in life? Are you surrounding yourself with individuals of a similar work ethic, drive and integrity?
Remember, as Jim Rohn said, “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with. Choose wisely.”
Have a Team Mentality | Lasting Success
One thing you never see with the Patriots is a cocky player who has an ‘all about me’ attitude. It just doesn’t work. Their success is directly correlated to players with a team mentality.
If you’re running a business or you’re an employee, adopt this mentality and long-term success is will come much easier. A group of people can accomplish much more than any one person.
Contribute when you can, help others grow, and create the right team in your life.
Love the Haters | Lasting Success
Success brings envy and jealousy. And dominating for 20 years in the NFL has produced a lot of haters from fans and players all over. But they don’t care, they actually use their haters as fuel to keep going.
The same goes for you.
If someone is doubting your business idea or life choices, let that hate or doubt nurn within you. Don’t let it affect you, use it as fuel to push yourself and prove them wrong.
Remember, critics and haters are often your most jealous admirers. Don’t let their negativity bring you down. Stay in your lane and let your success speak for itself.
Stay Consistent | Lasting Success
The Patriots are hated (and loved) by so many because of their consistency. Let’s face it, consistency in anything in life, let alone playing on the biggest stage, isn’t easy. But having the right fundamentals and work ethic make it less complicated.
If you’re not where you want life or business right now, work on your consistency.
Do you quit when things get tough? Or do you thrive?
As Tony Robbins said, “It’s not what we do once in a while that shapes our lives, it’s what we do consistently.”
Hopefully, these lessons from the New England Patriots can help you find consistency and success in your life and business. Model success in any area of life to speed up results and make your dreams come to life.
