1- Imagine that you have succeeded.
Einstein said that imagination was more important than knowledge. Think about your success in the most vivid and precise way; it will then be easier for you to turn your ambitions into reality. Do you want to get rich or become the next ‘big thing’?
Whatever the nature of your dream, imagine that you have already succeeded!
“All successful men and women are big dreamers. They imagine what their future could be, ideal in every way, and then they work towards that distant vision, goal or objective every day.” –Brian Tracy
2- Find the goal, a life mission, or the objective of your life.
Identify what you enjoy doing, what gives you a sense of satisfaction, and what will motivate you along the way. The secret to success is to love something and master it.
3- Define your own sense of success.
You can’t be successful if you don’t know what it means to you. So set specific goals with your feet on the ground. There is no shortcut to success. It is the fruit of hard work and perseverance. Have confidence in yourself and your abilities.
4- Set deadlines for your goal.
If you don’t set a date for accomplishing your goal, you won’t know whether or not you’ve failed. Establish a schedule that is strict, but achievable.
5- Identify the necessary skills and delegate.
This step involves identifying short-term goals that will help you accomplish your future goals. You may think yourself unbeatable, but your abilities have limits. It’s hard to be successful if you don’t trust the people around you. Success is also a matter of team management and human resources.
If you don’t trust people, you won’t succeed. Asking others to take care of certain less important tasks allows you to find time to devote to what is directly related to your job.
6- Develop your curiosity.
Many successful people have boundless curiosity. If they don’t understand how something works or don’t have an answer to a question, they seek it out and find it. This opens up new horizons for them every time. Listen. Study. Master. Learn. Repeat.
Humans are amazing creatures: we can study the world, make intellectual connections, and use those connections to make our lives better (or worse). This is what information allows us to do. Never stop learning.
”Success comes from curiosity, focus, perseverance, and self-criticism”. –Albert Einstein
7- Divide your goal into small steps.
Does the goal seem incredibly unattainable? Don’t waste your time. Don’t make excuses for procrastinating. Break it down into fewer complex goals. If you manage your project step by step, it will seem less colossal to you.
8- Surround yourself with successful people.
When you’re surrounded by motivated people, it’s encouraging. You can exchange ideas and they can even put you in touch with other people who can help you achieve your goal. Surrounding yourself with successful people is one way to develop a culture of success.
Find a mentor. A mentor is someone, usually with a bit more experience than you, who knows the stuff, gives you advice, and helps you with your projects. A mentor will help you establish a network of contacts, improve your ideas and develop your strategies.
9- Find solutions.
Successful people encourage progress by solving problems and questions that arise. No matter where you are or what you are doing, look around you and try to think of solutions to work around the problems that will prevent you from achieving your goals.
10- Do not give up and persevere.
You will fail, that’s for sure. How you recover from failure defines you. Do not abandon. If your first attempt doesn’t work, don’t give up. Keep in mind that if you don’t quit, you won’t lose. Success is not the result of willpower alone, it also requires consistency and determination. Doing it once won’t make a difference, it’s when you do it several times that you get there.
“It is not because fate refuses us something at a certain moment that we must consider this refusal as final”. – Anthony Robbins
11- Success does not guarantee happiness.
Success is equated with achieving a goal, but it should not be assumed that it will be the source of your happiness. Many people think that by accomplishing such and such a goal, they would be happier. But fulfillment and satisfaction are much more about how you approach life than what you do with it.
This list is not exhaustive and each of the points above deserves your attention and is to be deepened if you wish to achieve your objectives.
The number 1 asset of a successful person!
Embarking on a personal project is to change your life and see a daily life that suits you. Success has different faces. For some it will not only be a question of the financial aspect, material, for others it will be a question of travels, still others of recognition.
To be successful in life is to give your all! Don’t let doubt take over your mind and don’t procrastinate. To be successful quickly but also over time, it is necessary to have a clear organization in order to be able to move forward.
To change your destiny and live the life you dream of, it is important that you are accompanied and above all, you have the concrete techniques to apply on a daily basis. Most people refuse to step out of their comfort zone and don’t want to change their habits.
Fear of change, social pressure. There are a whole host of explanations for not acting. The solution lies within you. Self-confidence is worked on a daily basis with the right actions.
My question now then is this: Are you willing to take the right action from now on?
