5 WAYS TO CLIMB TO SUCCESS
We all want to succeed in what we do. We wish to achieve what we have been dreaming of ever since we were young. Definition of success varies from one person to another depending on what one may want to achieve. As much as there are no clear rules of succeeding, there are no specific actions either that can lead you there, but there are certain characteristics that all successful people in all walks of life posses in common. They have different stories but the same features occur. Practicing them can make you climb up the success ladder.
HAVE YOUR GOALS
Discover yourself. Know who you are and what you want. Find out what you love doing best all times. Most people succeed in what they derived happiness or fulfilment from. Write down your goals then by adopting the elimination method, get one that you enjoy doing. Once you have gotten the one goal you want to work on, outline how you are going to achieve it little by little till you are there at the top.
DEFINE YOUR PATH
Have a vision. When you have a target of where you want to be, it gives you the strength and motivation to work towards it. Lay down the strategies you will apply to realize your goals. Identify the most crucial people that will help you reach there. Always surround yourself with positive and successful people negative energies will suck your power to move on.
Nothing comes on a silver platter. Sacrifices are part and parcel of success. One should be prepared to leave the comfort zone and get working all round the clock. If possible, look for creative ways to do your work so that it can make it easier. This is called smart working. A good example is having a system to supervise when employees report to and leave their workstations and the amount of workload done instead of you having to go there personally. Takes a lot of time and energy.
The ladder to success is slippery. You might fall down miserably for some time before you can firmly grip and continue climbing. It doesn’t entertain any weak heart. Failures is a sign you are achieving something so one is supposed to be persistent ever. Be careful when choosing friends. Look out for those that encourage you to try it ones more. They act as motivators.
MAINTAIN THE MOMENTUM
Once you have breakthrough, keep it going by either sustaining or improving. Daily look for ways that add to you. Be observant of any social, technological changes for they might be good sources of opportunity. Whatever happens you will have to focus and never lose hope for one day you will land in your dreamland.
A Selection of Quotes About Success
“He has achieved success who has lived well, laughed often, and loved much;
Who has enjoyed the trust of pure women, the respect of intelligent men and the love of little children;
Who has filled his niche and accomplished his task;
Who has never lacked appreciation of Earth’s beauty or failed to express it;
Who has left the world better than he found it,
Whether an improved poppy, a perfect poem, or a rescued soul;
Who has always looked for the best in others and given them the best he had;
Whose life was an inspiration;
Whose memory a benediction.” ~ Bessie Anderson Stanley“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.”
