We have all made ourselves these types of questions at some point in our lives. When some think of success, they imagine wealth; others want power; some just want to make a positive impact on the world and make a difference in this planet.
All of these are perfectly valid, indeed success is a concept that means different things to different people. No matter what success means to you, it almost certainly isn’t something that will come easily. On the other hand, there are a lot of tools out there that will give you a slight idea of how to achieve success. For example, you can always choose a book of your preference that will have a guide or a number of steps to follow on a daily basis. However, each of these is subjective as success is personal and unique to each individual. The advice contained in these books can often not be relevant. Therefore following the advice of a single individual can often be unhelpful.
With this in mind, I have written this article for you to follow. I don’t just want you to read it, I want you to be able to identify (through your reading) the essential tips I’m handing to you over here. I truly believe it will help you learn how to be successful and improve your quality of life. I would also like you to make a list of the tips listed and write them down.
To begin with, you must have in mind that almost all people have one thing in common when it comes to success and this is that we are too comfortable with ourselves and what we do. We often decide to put our dreams aside for something more “realistic”, in other words we chose to give up our dreams for something easier. Instead, we should all choose to be ambitious. My advice to you on this is to always think big. Now, you have a task. One certain thing is that you need to take your time to search and find that one thing you are extremely passionate about. When you find this, you are now able to get the motivation needed to help you keep moving on. In this regards success means the fulfillment of your dreams. Find what you love to do and do it.
Now, I want you to think about how you are managing your time. One of the major keys to success is being able to manage your time wisely. Learn how to balance your life and think of it as a balance between rest and work, or work and play. Know your priorities.
You will face a lot of failures during this process, that is an undeniable fact. Don’t be afraid of failure. As Henry Ford once said: “Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently.” So, don’t turn yourself down by one little mistake. At some point in your life, you will realize that you have not failed one thousand times, instead, you have found one thousand ways that don’t work. Success has to be something you can imagine yourself achieving. Believe in yourself and your capacity to succeed, otherwise, no one else is going to believe in you. True success comes from this and of course the work you put into it. You will never become successful if you don’t work towards your life goal and keep working towards it. Be willing to work hard.
Finally, you have your intuition. If you strongly believe and desire something, chances are that you already have an idea of how to get there. If not, you may naturally know what things will help you and what things will slow you down. Be brave enough to follow your intuition. Your mindset is your guide on this. You need to trust in your ability to succeed. This is the only way to cultivate the right mindset. If you stay positive, setbacks won’t affect you as much, people’s doubts won’t impact you and even the biggest obstacles will seem like minor problems.
How many tips did you find? Did you write them down? Do you intend to make a change in your life?
I hope you do.
Yours truly, Monday
