Success is an interesting concept that I have studied for many years while working with some very successful people. While watching these people I have seen that their success always followed the same general path. I have broken that path down into 8 simple habits that you can follow and make your success a reality.
Habit # 1 : Goal Setting Goal setting is very important for you, because I don’t think you can succeed if you haven’t decided what you consider success, first. You need to have a target to aim for, you need to know why you are working.
" Once you start your journey, you should be clear on where you have to end because your journey is already a success, once you are clear where you are heading to."
Habit # 2 : Planning Successful entrepreneurs have made complete plans for how they are going to succeed and what they plan on doing. Often they end up doing something completely different, but the act of planning moves you to a long term mindset and it gives you a frame of reference when you evaluate opportunities and something to update when it is time to change. Without a roadmap success is impossible.
“Success often comes to those who have the aptitude to see way down the road.” –Laing Burns, Jr.
Habit # 3 : Acting A perfect plan cannot do anything until acted on. All the successful people I have worked with have developed the habit of acting. When they get an idea they take action at once. When they see an opportunity they don’t wait until tomorrow, they act. Once you have completed your plan, act on it.
"Success is hidden under a rock of hard work. Keep digging with patience; it's up to you, only."
Habit # 4 : Learning from failures Every successful person I have met have failed at least once, by failed I don’t mean you have to go bankrupt, but at least once their plans didn’t go as they thought. They didn’t know everything before they started. There were things they needed to learn. When you start towards your success you will hit at least one bump on the road, learn from it, learn how to avoid it and then get back on the horse.
"Failure is nothing but tasting a fruit while climbing the tree of success."
Habit # 5 : Adjusting With the new lesson you have learned you will need to update your plan, it might not be any major changes but you will need to do something. You will need to make some adjustments so that you take the quickest way towards your goals.
"If you feel that the world has turned against you, don't worry. Rise with your head up and say, 'It may not be now but I believe I will conquer the world.'"
Habit # 6 : Moving forward Strangely this is the most common part people miss. They try once, they fail, they make new plans and then they stop. They don’t have the courage to try again. Your chances of success are infinitely higher now that you have failed once, use the knowledge you have paid for and succeed. If you do you will be one of the chosen few who live their dreams.
"Success is waiting for those who are ready to persist and face the obstacles in the path with positive attitude."
Habit # 7 : Improving After going through the first crushing setback you learn a lot, but as you continue and get nearer and nearer your success you will see that you constantly need to learn more. Successful people seek out knowledge and never believe that they know everything. They continue improving themselves all the time.
Today is the preparation of your future success. Life is full of hardships, pains, sorrows, and trials. The only way to beat these odds is to face and take them as challenges of life and continue on improving yourself.
Habit # 8 : Celebrating success After your struggles are complete and you have learned enough you will succeed. This step is mostly about recognizing it. Once you have succeeded make sure to take pleasure in it, don’t blindly continue working and toiling. Live your dream life, the one you have deserved.
Just as an eagle soars far above the plains below, higher and higher into the azure sky, you have further to go on your journey. Get your enthusiasm back. God is guiding you, and there are infinite possibilities ahead. So, let them unfold. A whole, new, clear glorious life lies before you.
Take your time in reading them. Inwardly digest them. Chew on them. Be challenged by them. Don’t discard them, but simply ask yourself ‘what are the inspiring lessons I have just learned’ once you have read them. Read them more than once. Seek to understand and take action. I believe you can succeed in your life!!!
