21 Aug How to Be Successful
Every human being wants to live a happy, successful life which generally includes a loving relationship, a successful career, a degree of affluence, and good health.
But why do we desire success? Perhaps to live an easier life or to be admired and respected by our family and friends. Maybe to acquire nicer things, to show the world our “can do” attitude, or to feel powerful, secure and happy. We all have our own reasons.
The dictionary defines success as the accomplishment of an aim or purpose. Studies show that successful people think and act differently. They understand that success is a process, not an overnight achievement. Patience and perseverance are the keys.
Where to Begin Your Journey to Success
Start small. Begin where you are right now. And trust yourself. Each piece of the puzzle will complete the whole.
Success is something we all dream about, chase after, and prepare for. Reaching success usually requires many hours of training – physically, emotionally and mentally. It means failing and getting back up, striving to become better at our craft, handling life’s ups and downs with grace, and growing as human beings.
If we keep doing what we have always done, we will keep getting the same results. To become successful, we need to break the old patterns that are holding us back.
I truly believe that the purpose of life is to thrive on all levels – career, finances, family/friends, health, spirituality, inner life (joy, happiness, peace, self-respect), and in our leisure activities.
There are so many people who have accumulated massive wealth, but that is all they have – money. They are unhappy, failing in their relationships, or suffering from serious health problems. What’s all the money for if in every other area of your life you are unfulfilled? There are other people who are in peak physical condition or spiritually enlightened, but are struggling financially. The key to achieving success in life is to always strive for balance!
The Steps to Success
The first step in achieving success is to set specific goals. A life coach can be instrumental in helping you get started. He or she can provide valuable tools that will help you set goals the right way and then help you reach them.
The second step is to prepare yourself for success: accumulate knowledge, have the right focus, put yourself in the right mental state, be enthusiastic, and make sure you are physically and mentally able to pursue your vision of success.
The next step is to clean up the messes. Forgive yourself and the individuals in your life who need to be forgiven, even if they don’t deserve it. The only person affected by grudge-holding is you. Release it! Make space for something better. Take responsibility for what you have done wrong and do better next time.
Change your attitude towards life and people. If you think the world is a bad place, and that is your predominant mental attitude, you will start seeing negativity everywhere. Give the world and the people in it the benefit of the doubt. Expect good things. Put out positive energy. Let go of the past and learn from it. Focus on a vision of the future.
If you seek prosperity, what can you do to achieve it? Perhaps go back to school, learn a new skill, meet new people, apply for a new job, or set higher standards.
If you want to lose weight or get in shape, stop eating sweets and potato chips. Eat healthy and establish a new exercise regimen. In just a short time, you will feel energized and fantastic. If you need help getting there, don’t be afraid to ask. Hypnotherapy is a great way to change bad habits into good ones.
It is also important to surround yourself with positive, motivated people who inspire and support you. If you take a look around and discover that there are no such people in your life, it’s time to broaden your circle of friends or colleagues.
Stay On Track with a Life Coach
If you need an accountability partner or someone who can help you stay on track, hire a life coach. Don’t let fear stand in your way. Fear will keep you stuck and unhappy. Find a life coach who you are comfortable with and who will help you stay on course! Invest in your future. You are worth it.
Perhaps most important of all – keep your eyes on the prize and stay present in the process. Don’t let doubt or anxiety creep in. Enjoy these moments of transition. Each day you are becoming better, stronger person. Honor that!
My advice is to get out of your comfort zone. Try something new. Push yourself, and conquer bad habits and self-defeating behaviors. You will become a different person, internally first and then externally. The internal reflects the external. When you feel empowered, you will attract a new reality. Always.
