Success In Life Is Personal

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.

This is where you need to be decisive. You need to step up and make the hard decisions of where you want your life to go. What path do you want to follow? What is your definition of success?The world needs diversity and this helps us to keep moving in the right direction.For some success may be moving up the corporate ladder or running a successful business. For others success could be finding their soul mate and having a family and for others success in life may be reaching sporting or educational goals they have set for themselves. All of these are perfectly fine. Because success for you is what makes you happy and fulfilled.

There is no substitute for diligence. You can attend multitudes of conferences and listen to all the subject matter experts you want to, but if you persist to be lazy, you don't have what it takes to become a success in life (sorry about being so brutally honest). You may be a person of faith and you can pray to God for success all night long, but if you have lazy hands, you are destined for failure.

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.

Well, I will guarantee that each one of those overnight successes have been achieving other quieter, less public, subtler successes along the way before "getting their big break". Nobody becomes an overnight success overnight. The bottom line is that in order to succeed in life we must have goals, whether big or small. You can still be a big thinker and a very successful person by accomplishing bite-sized goals and succeeding at them one at a time.

Exert more effort in what you are doing and make it better. In aiming to succeed you have to give everything your best. If your past has aggravating experiences, this time around you should have accomplishments, triumph and victory, and that is all because you did your best and you did everything that you could do to make it to the top.Believe in what you can do. Nobody else would start believing you but yourself. If you don't believe that you can do more that you can right now, who would? It is essential that you know yourself and up to what extent can you give, this way you will be able to evaluate your competencies in whatever task that will be given to you.Now that you know this, all you have to do is to keep these steps in mind and perform them accordingly. You may find some other principles that you can add in to make sure that you hit your target. But as soon as you are up there, do not forget to humble yourself, because that is what made successful people who they are right now, and you better remember all of these from now on.
