First things first. What is YOUR definition of "success"?
What determines whether or not someone is successful
in your eyes? For some people it is having a lot of
money, for others it may be having the time freedom to
play golf once a week, and for others it may be raising
their children to be "good people" or having a large
group of close friends. For every one of us, there is a
different definition of what success is for others, and
what success is for ourselves in our own lives. The more
important of the two is how we measure success for
ourselves, not for others. In order to have success in our
own lives we must first define, within ourselves, what it
IS to be successful and then set
our hearts and minds on achieving it. The basic
foundation to attaining success is setting goals and when
you achieve those goals, you have success.
How Can I Get Success in Life? To begin the journey
toward achieving a life filled with success, consider the
following strategies: Adopt a Positive Mindset - Too
many of our daily thoughts are negative and self-
defeating. While you can never truly remove all negative
thoughts from your mindset, you can begin to
consciously focus on positive thoughts versus negative.
Work to become aware of your thoughts and when you
come across a negative one, shift your thinking to
something positive. In time, this conscious behavior will
result in positive subconscious changes.Assume
Responsibility - Avoid placing blame on others or
circumstances for your position in life. Accept
responsibility for your
actions. What we attract into our lives is a direct result
of our mindset, our thoughts and our beliefs. Choose to
think positive thoughts versus negative ones; shift your
mindset to one of abundance and opportunity rather
than failure and lack of opportunity and begin believing
that you deserve as much success as the next person.
When deciding on the path in life you would like to
pursue you must be true to yourself. Do not set goals for
yourself that others place on you. Find what it is that
you desire and go for it.Feeling successful brings it's
rewards. It brings with it happiness, raised self esteem
and confidence that when combined snowballs and
makes success even sweeter.When starting out on your
personal crusade of finding your own success there are
many things you can do. The following are tried and
tested techniques that can give you the winning edge.
Be it far from me to suggest that prayer does not work.
But remember, the verse I quoted is from the Word of
God. He is the one who says that lazy hands make a man
or woman poor. All the praying in the world won't
compensate for laziness.
Follow your dreams and build your foundations. You
have dreams and these dreams are significant of what
you want to accomplish in the near future. If you already
have set up your goals, then you can definitely picture
what your future is, now you need to build foundations,
and these foundations should be strong enough to keep
you going with no hesitations.Get out from your comfort
zone. Those who aim to achieve the best of what they
can be, should get out from their comfort zone.
Whereas, to succeed in life you need to improve and
grow, you would not be able to do this while you are in
that crib. Get my point?
Some people are amazingly nave about life. They seem
to think that success in life is happenstance. But this is
an extremely competitive world in which we live. Even
finding your so-called dream job these days is much
harder than it used to be. Regardless of your aspirations,
however, you can become a success in life. It's called
being diligent: doing what's required to gain the
competitive edge; never giving up; refusing to accept
defeat; living a life of integrity.
