What is success to you?

 

Before you can work toward your success in life you need to understand what success is to you.

Most people tend to measure their success in life against someone else’s accomplishments or definition of success. That is not a valid yardstick for measuring ‘your success, as success is personal and entails different things to different people. Regardless of the personal differences of what success entails, having a clear goal in mind is always one of the first steps towards success, as there is no victory without a battle, there is no successful person without a goal or an accomplishment. Successful people are intentional about their goals: they work towards them every day.

With that cleared out of the air, these life tips are not drafted to tell you how to succeed in any particular area. They are tested and proven to be able to help anyone, including you, to succeed in all endeavors.

 

1. Think positively

 

6 Steps To Success in Life

One of the first steps to success is getting rid of negativity.

What we constantly think of, almost always have a way of expressing out

If you focus on negative thoughts, you are unlikely to have success or happiness in life. But if you are positive and motivated, you can almost do anything.

Consider for a moment. When anyone starts something entirely new and strange, like learning about a particular subject, it almost seems impossible at first to grasp it or totally understand it, but with determination and positivity, as time goes on, it suddenly becomes like a part of the person. This will not happen if all the person thinks of is “I can’t do it”. Your mind is really a magnet…it attracts things that are on the same frequency with it. Think positively, and you will experience positive results

“Your mind is a mighty thing. When you fill it with positive thoughts, your life will begin to change.” – Gautama Buddha

 

2. Be ever learning

As Colin Powell said, “There is no secret to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure” that defines us. But the minute you stop being ready to learn new things, that’s the instance you leave the path of success.

 Take a look at the most successful people on earth, one of the solid, most common things about them is the passion for learning.

Learning always puts you ahead in life. You cant want or desire success and despise learning, it is like shooting yourself in the leg. Discipline yourself to learn, dedicate quality time to reading. You can start with 1 hour daily, the idea is to develop the habit of reading and learning new things as well.

 

3. Don’t be afraid to aim at the stars!

There are numerous guides, materials that say that the only way to achieve your goals is to belittle them and make them small.

I don’t necessarily buy into that Ideology. People who win a 200m race are never trained with 200m!. They are trained with distances far greater than that.

 Never put your big dreams aside simply because you want to work towards something more realistic and achievable.

Aim at the stars and shoot at them. You will achieve what is tremendous and huge that way.

 

4. Focus on your passions.

6 Steps To Success in Life

There is no person who is more successful than a person who does what he loves and loves what he does!!

As Steve Jobs said, “Your work is going to take up a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe to be great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do.

Adapting the belief that passion equals success is the best way to succeed. And chances are high that, what you love is already what you’re naturally good at!

 

5. Avoid being distracted

No matter how determined you are to be successful, there will always be side distractions. In fact, the more your determinations, the more distractions. It’s simple physics!.

“To every action, there is an equal but opposite reaction” (Newton’s third law of motion).

OK let me paraphrase that…

To every step you take to go forward, there is an equal, that tries to bring you back, you will realize that is when the cinemas will start premiering your favorite TV shows, that’s when Twitter will have the hottest and most interesting threads of all time.

Mind you, all these are not bad in themselves In fact, there are pleasurable. But on your journey to success, they are distractions that sneak in, eat your time, and take your attention from what really matters at the time.

Getting rid of excessive distractions and negative thoughts is very vital on your way to success.

Now, let’s get this straight I don’t mean you can never watch a series again. But what I  do mean is you have to be able to sacrifice some ‘pleasurable moments’ to focus and devote real time and attention to your goals.

 

6. Be afraid of failure!? No, never!

No matter how goal-oriented you are or can ever be, fear will always be a part of you. Fear of failure, fear of what people might say when you don’t meet your goals and targets.

However, it is important to note that failure does not always mean FAILURE. Those who really Fail are the ones who never try in the first place. Like I always like to say;  ‘failure is the pathway that leads to success.  You will never know success if you have not known failure

And if the fear of failure is really stopping you from living your dreams, I  recommend you consider this quote from Barack Obama:

“The real test is not whether you avoid this failure because you won’t. It’s about whether you let it harden or shame in action, or learn from it; that you choose to persevere.

Remember that great ideas die, from lack of execution!

As Obama aptly said, failure is inevitable. But choosing to give up or continue is up to you. And it just might make you stronger, wiser, or better in the meantime.

There you have it. Your 6 tips on how to be successful in life. I have done my part by providing you with what works… Will you do yours?. This leads me to this final bonus tip below

 

BECOME A DOER

One of Walt Disney’s most famous quotes is “the best way to begin is to stop talking and start doing” as well as “all our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them”.

While this sounds a bit simple, just know that you’ll never succeed unless you’re willing to take the first step towards it.

If you really want to succeed in life, you can’t just talk about it. All the plans in the world are useless if you don’t take action and take the first step.

And I get it; there is always a reason not to take a risk. There will never be that perfect time. to start this journey. So stop waiting.

The key ingredient to success is to just do it.

Congratulations on reading this far, most people will not, and that’s why I have something special for you below :

The one who is ‘just aware’, will painfully have the same result as an ignorant person.

14 SUCCESS TIPS YOU MUST KNOW

14 SUCCESS TIPS YOU MUST KNOW

We all want to succeed in every aspect of our lives. We want to expand our horizons and have more of what we desire. In this article, I will be showing you 14 Success tips you must know to succeed In Life.

 

1. Communicate effectively with others.

This has a lot to do with knowing how to communicate with the public. Knowing how to communicate effectively is a good skill for achieving anything.

The pathway to success will be quite difficult for you if you lack communication skills, there are things that relationships will bring to you faster than if you had gone off on your own. Wherever you want to be in life, there are others who have gone before you in that particular endeavor.

Your good communication and relational skills will be extremely helpful, when you meet such people, as they would be stepping stones to your success path.

 

2) Read.

14 SUCCESS TIPS YOU MUST KNOW

Reading is actually one of the best ways to learn, grow and gain knowledge. Now the deal is in not ‘just reading anything’, but it’s in reading strategic and edifying materials that you are intentional towards and that promise to bring desired changes in your life that’s what strategic, intentional reading entails.

Not many people read. Reading does to the mind what exercise does to the body. A lot of people want to be ahead in life, not knowing that, “for you to be ahead, something must be in your head”

I understand that reading can be difficult, especially when you are just starting out. But reading a few pages daily can add up to make a huge difference. That’s how habits are built, and a reading habit is no exception – consistency over intensity!.

Warren Buffet reads an average of 6 hours daily that’s long right?

It should interest you to know that he didn’t start out with that kind of Intensive reading. The intensity was built through consistency. Dedicate at least, 1 hour daily to reading self-development books, and watch in wonder how your life takes on a new leaf towards success

 

3) Choose your friends wisely

Surround yourself with interesting people but, above all, with people who are optimistic, have the same passion as you, and are moving in the same direction as you. As hard as it may seem to you, there are some people who really drag us away from goals, hence success.

They have this lackadaisical attitude towards life, unserious and they just let life live them! You are different and that’s why you are here, reading this. Now, I am not saying you should just cut everyone away from you. All I am saying is surrounding yourself with people of like minds and the same passions as you will quickly lead you to your destination.

Just imagine being on a ship with someone who is determined to go North, while you are set to go South!. What a heck of a drama that will be and how much time that will be lost! in that hopelessness. So I feel the need to repeat myself… Choose your friends wisely!

 

4) Dedicate yourself to what you love and do well.

The key to being successful is to find what you are excited about and indulge in it. This will make you go through the downsides and the various vicissitudes that the path of success brings. Being passionate and excited about a particular thing is just want you to need to succeed in it, even when it’s against all odds

 

5) Practice getting out of your comfort zone.

Most people want to stay in their comfort zone.

You can’t expect magic to happen if you do the same things over and over again. You just have to move on and start doing new things. Fear of failure is the reason why people stay in their comfort zone. And there truly is no success without failure. Comfort zones are growth inhibitors.

You cant grow there. Being successful requires you to try different things or the same things in different ways! Take a step out of your comfort zone and behold the wildness of life, and new challenges and discover ways to tackle them…. that means Growth!

 

6 ) Consistency is the key to success.

In any endeavor of life, patience is essential if you are to stand out as different from the people around you, then you have to be consistent. Consistency is something not everyone has, as most people often give up on things that don’t work out as they expect at first. So stay consistent on your path, so long as you have clarity and a clear picture of what you want. Sooner than later you will see a breakthrough in your efforts.

 

7) Take care of your own health.

Exercise, eat and sleep well.

The better you manage your body, the better you will feel and the better results you will have in any area of life. Dedicate time to preparing healthy meals and exercising for at least 30 minutes a day.

Not having time to exercise or eat healthy food is unwise. If you have time to watch TV or watch Tik Tok, then you have time to take care of your body. Always remember that a healthy body equals a healthy mind, and a healthy mind equals a healthy life…

 

8) Do not be discouraged by failure.

Failure is inevitable in life. I do not know anyone who has not failed in any area of his life. The difference between successful people and others is how they cope with such failures. If you use your shortcomings as an opportunity to improve and resume your work with more confidence, you will be truly successful in what you do.

 

9) Do not stay idle.

The bed and sofa are the killers of time. The bed is for rest at night, but oversleeping is not healthy. Time is not a renewable resource, and therefore you would want to make the most use of it as possible. Instead of idling around, pick up a book and read or you can ponder on productive ideas.

In whatever you do, try to make judicious use of your time. Your success is a function of time, and so is almost everything else. Time reveals what we have done over a particular period. Don’t waste time I repeat, a ‘second’ loss, can’t be bought back.

Successful people know time as their most expensive commodity, they never waste their time on unproductive things. You literally give your life to whatever you give your time to never forget this.

 

10) Accept those things we cannot change.

There is a saying or prayer: Give me peace, Lord, to accept things I cannot change ”, calm to accept, but give me courage, courage, drive and the desire to change what I can change, and give me the wisdom needed to understand what I can and cannot do.

Don’t waste your time and energy on those things that don’t depend on you. Focus on those things that you truly need. For example, you can’t change your country’s economy but certainly, you can alter your personal economy positively, and you owe it to yourself if you fail or succeed!

 

11) Take time each day to encourage yourself.

We all need to remember why we spend so much time in that profession where we want to excel. Maybe you want to earn a lot of money, fame, or acceptance, … Whatever the reason, you need to remember why you are doing it and have a mental picture of the moment you are going to achieve your goal

 

12) Zeal.

This last tip is related to #4. If you choose to do something you love, you are sure to do it with enthusiasm and zeal. These attitudes will lead to success in your life

 

13) Focus on productivity  (very different from being busy).

Make it a practice to remove the word “I’m busy” from your vocabulary, instead say “I can’t do it because it’s not my priority.

Everyone has 24 hours a day. You are responsible for assigning the key functions.

When you wake up, commit to doing one activity that makes a difference in your life. It will be your main job. Set a priority every day and do it. By applying the 80/20 principle, you should know that 20% of needed inputs will change things positively by 80%.

Always find your 20% and don’t waste time on the 80% activities that only make a 20% difference!. That is me telling you to stop wasting time on things with minimal productivity. Being busy doesn’t equal being productive!

 

14) Add value

Successful people are valued, and they are duly rewarded for providing value to others in the form of solutions to people’s problems. Your success will depend on how much you can contribute to others.

 

Take-Home

We live in a world of cause and effect. And in this polarity of living, the effect always takes care of itself. In order words, take care of the cause and the effects will have no other choice than to follow.

Success is an effect, Poverty is also an effect, and lack is an effect. These things are like ‘report cards’ that try to point us to a ’cause’

Many people who want to be successful, lack this basic understanding, and they just shadowbox here and there.

Between the lines of what you just read lies the ’cause’ and you will only experience the ‘effect’ if you engage the ’cause’.

I would advise you to go through it again and really grasp it.  “Once have I spoken, twice have you heard”!

Cheer!!!

4 Steps To Ignore Negativity And Be Successful In Life

4 Steps To Ignore Negativity And Be Successful In Life

Learning to Ignore Negativity

Negative individuals have always existed and that wouldn’t change. There’s nothing anyone can do to change that. But we can learn to ignore the noise, so to speak. We can learn to filter out the negativity as we aim to achieve our dreams. This post will explain the 4 Steps To Ignore Negativity And Be Successful In Life

In life, if you’ve been pushing towards something, hit walls or major obstacles, and been faced with a number of setbacks and negativity from people around you, you’re most definitely not alone. There will always be people there to tell you that you are not capable of doing something, that you’re not clever enough, that you don’t have enough finance or connections, and so on. But you have to put aside the negativity if you want to get to your goals.

But negativity doesn’t only come from other people; it also comes from inside you. Yes, there are individuals out there that will try to hold you back and bring you down to their level. The unfortunate fact is that people (not speaking for every individual) don’t want to see others close to them become successful. But negativity can also come from inside you. Your own mind can help to develop that negativity, making you doubt your talent, self-worth, ability, and capacity for success.

 

So, how can we cancel the noise?

 

Your Greatest Setback is Your Biggest Blessings

 

Everyone in life falls short of something. When we fail, it causes a large amount of pain. And, our minds do everything possible to help shun pain and gain pleasure – it’s part of a design of inborn biological cues and responses that are basal by nature. It’s not easy to fall short of something. It’s not easy to carry a large amount of pain, but that pain and setback are your biggest blessings.

However, when you’re encircled by negativity, it can help to rapidly increase the pain of setbacks or even the potential pain of setbacks. Even if you didn’t fail at something, the dread of failing itself tends to limit us. That fear is bred not only by our mind itself in its tendency to avoid pain, but also by people such as family members, friends, and peers. But you need to change that if you want to be successful.

What you have to really understand is that your greatest setbacks are your biggest blessings. Even if you failed at something previously, and were faced with a large amount of pain, that same pain can be the catalyst in the future.

Life throws us certain lessons every now and then, which we have to use to increase our understanding of all things. Failing in business, finances, relationships or any other goal is painful, but it can also be your greatest catalyst.

 

Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligibly. — Henry Ford

 

How to Get Your Goals

When we fail, and when we face negativity, both from the inside and the outside, achieving our goals might seem very difficult. We begin to give in to self-doubt and our minds tend to backtrack creating reasons for why we didn’t want a certain goal to start with. We come up with apparently valid reasons why we never wanted that hope or that dream, really. But, we have to realize that this is normal; this happens to everybody.

But, the setback is the bridge of opportunity to succeed. Without setbacks, it’s impossible to achieve long-term success. Failure helps to create the foundation for what will be a bright and wondrous future. So, if you’ve faced setbacks recently, or even at some point previously, you have to realize that your setbacks were “simply the opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligibly.”

So, how do you achieve success in the face of failure? How do you ignore negativity and step out of your self-imposed limitations?

 

Step One– Understand the “Why”

It doesn’t matter the amount of negativity that is out there, which may be holding you back. It doesn’t matter how often you failed at doing something. What matters is why you want what you want. Do you know the reason you had or have a certain goal? If you don’t know that reason, then you’ve missed the first and most important step in setting a goal.

Remember, reasons come first in goal setting. If you don’t have a good enough reason why then it’s difficult to ignore negativity or overcome past setbacks and pain. But, when your “why” is good enough, you can achieve anything. Figure out the reason you want something, and if it has a deep enough meaning to you, then it will help to catalyze your pursuits.

 

Step Two – Understand the “When”

The second step to achieving your goals, even in the face of negativity, difficulty, and past failures, is to have an understanding of when you’ll get to your goals. You have to associate a specific time frame with your goal achievement. Don’t just come up with some indistinct timeframe in your mind. Be specific about it.

Next to each of your goals, after knowing why you’re going to achieve them, know the date you’ll achieve them. Don’t just say you want to get a new job this year. Know how you’re going to go about the application and interview process, why you really need it, and specifically when you intend to achieve it.

 

Why the “when” is so important?

When you target a specific date, and you write it down so that you can see it every single day, your mind has a way of stressing you towards your goals. It’s also a constant notice of what you need to do, even in the face of setbacks and failure. Make sure you know the “when,” and not just the “what” to achieve your goals.

 

Three– Cancel the Noise

You can cancel the noise of negativity that’s both inside you and from the outside by using a few methods.

Firstly, understand that negativity will always be there. Negative individuals will always be around to tell you that you are not capable of something. Negativity will also always exist somewhere deep inside your mind. Once you realize that, you can take the first step in canceling the noise, both from within and from other people.

Secondly, you have to find an inspiring story to keep you going. Many people failed in the past before they became a success. Henry Ford’s first two businesses didn’t work out, Stephen King’s first novel was declined by 30 separate publishers, Thomas Edison was unsuccessful 10,000 times in inventing the commercially-viable electric bulb, and J.K. Rowling struggled through the worst 7 years of her life before publishing Harry Potter.

So, find your inspiration, and study them. Research all the factors that held them back. Read up on all the individuals that told them that they couldn’t achieve something. Remember, failure is a part of life. So what if you fail? Isn’t the reward worth taking a risk? If your reasons are good enough, then it most certainly is.

 

Step Four – Persistence

The last step to achieving your goals, even in the face of negativity and setbacks, is persistence. Goal achievement can only be achieved along the path of persistence, not the path of low resistance. If you’re thinking that something is going to be stress-free, then think again!. You’re going to have setbacks, you’re going to want to give in, and you’re going to be frustrated. That’s when you have to dig your heels in and be persistent.

Remember that so many individuals have failed many times over before achieving their goals. Whatever you want out of life – whether it’s better financial security, a better job, weight loss, or anything else – realize that it’s going to be difficult. You’re going to have to persist until you gain success.

You might fall short repeatedly and face negativity from every direction, but all you have to do is to be persistent. In time you’ll inch closer and closer to your goals as long as you don’t give up on your goals.

Conclusion

Never give up on your hopes and your dreams, no matter the circumstance. You can achieve anything you want to in life. Audacious spirits are met with audacious rewards, but it will be difficult; it never comes easy.
