Do you define success as having a lot of money? Or do you define success as being able to live your life the way you want to?
Either way, they are both good things to strive for.
We all know not everyone can be successful as there are checks and balances for winners and losers.
I truly feel most people want to be in on the winning side. However, we always run into people that remain in the same place in life.
Do you feel you are one of those people?
Obviously, if you’re a person looking and trying to better your life, you want to be on the winning side.
Being successful can mean many things.
My definition of being successful is accomplishing what you intend to do.
Success does not mean to look better than the people around you.
I believe it comes from within and how you perceive yourself and your life. Success is something that you do not have to show on a daily basis.
Success is how you live your life.
3 Things you can do to help yourself be successful in life
Here are three tips on being successful:
1. Create a Vision of Yourself
Having a vision is the first and most critical step of any successful plan. Create a vision of what you intend to do.
Write down how you want to see yourself 1 year (or 5 or 10 years) from now.
You can say things like this;
I want to become the manager of one of the departments from the company I am working with. Managing and coordinating with a number of clients and serving together with a number of my subordinates. And having a salary of (state your desired salary).
I want to have my own car, own home, own business and marry my girlfriend. I want to have one million on my bank account.
And so on. Write it down. The more specific and detailed, the better. Then use that vision so all your actions will be towards them.
Think about how your life will look. Having a vision will help you focus on what you want to achieve.
2. Take up Good Habits and Break Unproductive Habits
Always read and learn about the world around you.
Think an opportunity through and do not be impulsive when an opportunity presents itself.
Eat well and exercise.
After all everything you do starts from within. Be in good health and don’t take your good health for granted. Add fitness to your life.
Learn to handle distractions as there will be plenty of distractions to address. Don’t use distractions as an excuse to fail.
3. Enjoy the Chase
Enjoy your road to success. The path will be filled with adversity and difficulties, and sometimes bad luck too.
There is no such thing as a straight line towards a successful life.
Keep your sense of humor because you may experience very tough challenges along the way.
Grab a beer and laugh with friends.
Be responsible, try to control your time by being as effective as possible.
Remember, success is not free and it does take sacrifice. The price you pay is time and effort.
Success is hard but rewarding (even during the chase for success).
To be successful you have to work hard, educate yourself, have a beer with your friends and maybe have a little luck on your side.
