Think about the times when you have been successful in your life. What were the basic things you needed and did to achieve that success? I thought about it and came up with this list.
Work for it. One of the first things people need to understand is that success takes work. Most people are working hard to sustain the life they don’t want but still think that the life they want is going to come easy. Everyone loves the overnight success. Unfortunately, the overnight success story is just that – a story. Behind most real success stories are years of hard work, training, and preparation. The truth is you get what you work for.
Start now. Just doing a little to reach your goals every week will pay off vs just thinking you are going to do something later. Years will go by and you will not be one step closer wishing and hoping – doing is the critical factor.
Set goals and objectives. These are extremely necessary to help you know where you’re going and keep on task until you get there. Don’t wish for success plan on it.
Study what you want to succeed at. There are tons of material on every subject. You just have to look for it, study it and put it into action.
Surround yourself with positive and supportive people. People are very social if you surround yourself with friends who are struggling, binge-watching programs, or worse, you too will engage in similar activities. And should you decide to do something different you will not get the emotional, mental and other support that you need.
Make friends with someone who is doing what you want to do. You need a personal contact who can tell you what it takes. Someone who can give you some advice and direction. They will help to keep you on track.
Don’t give up. Success takes work and resilience. You will fail sometimes, but you have to learn from those failures, grow and keep going.
