How To Achieve Success
I believe the first step towards achieving success is to define what it represents to you. A key factor is understanding yourself and what “makes you tick”. What is your DEFINITE PURPOSE in life? If you know where you want to head, it’ll be far easier to set in place a plan to get you there. What motivates you?. I think the most important step on the road to SUCCESS is first ACKNOWLEDGING yourself for what you are:
your faults, strengths, “warts and all”.
Your HOPES and DREAMS for your life are vitally important.
The key ingredients in the formula to success, I believe, are as follows:
and most importantly,
4.A POSITIVE ATTITUDE
Some others which you can throw into the recipe are:
and a SINGLED-MINDED PURSUIT of your objective.
So what else helps?
A strong belief in yourself and what you are doing (or trying to achieve)
Your ultimate goals and dreams should conform to your values. So if you’re an honest sort of bloke (nice Kiwi/Aussie word for a solid down-to-earth type of person), who wants to make a lot of money, don’t think of robbing a bank. The riches won’t bring you happiness…and you’re not likely to be too successful as a bank-robber if you are a regular church-goer!
Whatever you are, I believe the key ingredient to achieving success is PERSISTENCE.
The following words mean a lot to me personally …
Just because you failed doesn’t mean you are a failure.
“I’m not a failure if I don’t make it…I’m a success because I tried ”
YOU TOO ARE NOT A FAILURE IF YOU DON’T MAKE IT
YOU’RE A SUCCESS BECAUSE YOU TRY.
All of the above character traits give us our strength in the face of adversity. EMPOWERMENT: this is the ability to take control over your life and learn from your experiences. We can all learn so much from the roller coaster that is life each and every day. Or is it swings and roundabouts?
What can you do about your life…other than breathe and stay alive?
Don’t just stand there – do something.
“JUST HAVE A GO” at life.
