How To Be Successful

One might think that through our schooling we would be taught how to become successful. Do we have a working definition for what successful even means? We go through life never defining for ourselves a true definition of success. Yes changes are happening all the time in schools and society but still there are two questions left to be asked. How to be successful and defining what it means to each person as an individual.

What does success mean to you? It may mean acquiring a lot of money, the ability to keep a lasting and healthy relationship, becoming famous, finding awareness and alignment. Underneath this desire there is a need that all feel. This feeling is the basic human need for acceptance and to feel appreciated. Do we seek it from outside of our self or within our self? Many if not most people strive to find success but few really know the framework in which to obtain it.

How To Be Successful

What It Takes

We have hundreds of people we can look up to that society would deem “successful”. Warren Buffet, Bill Gates, Michael Phelps, Len Blavatnik and many more are self made billionaires of today. What do they possess that others do not? Did they ask themselves the same questions. In order for me to become successful what must I do? These individuals maybe knew little about the strategies of becoming successful but they knew what they were passionate about. They had the vision, positive mindset and ability to stay the course.

Becoming successful involves your perspective of who you are and what your abilities are. Is the saying true that if we want other people to value us then we must first learn to find value in our self first? Take Michael Phelps for example. Could he be holding the world record for eight gold medals if he did not think he was capable and valuable? How is he any different from you? He is not.

A great measure to start with is valuing yourself and your talents. This is regardless of what others say and think of you. Prove your capabilities to yourself. Setting small goals you can accomplish is the best way to start out if you doubt you can become successful.

How To Be Successful

Drop the Expectations

Stop setting expectations and start thinking about outcome. Expectations only lead you farther away from your path. If they are unrealistic than you will become frustrated and compare yourself and the progress you do or do not make on others around you. You become hard on yourself for not meeting these expectations. As humans we tend to pull from our past to set expectations and they are based now on something that is false. The past is only a time space event that has nothing to do with the current moment.

People tend to make calculated decisions that are not realistic. They are based on fear and feelings. The word calculated means you have thought about what the outcome may be and you have already made up your mind on what is going to happen before even taking the risk.

7 Tips From Top Billionaires

1. Read

Successful people are great readers. You want to adopt this habit if you want to obtain wealth. Choosing books that will help you to grow. These may include books related to what you are passionate about as well as self-help books, books related to biographies of people who are successful, psychology related information leadership. Devote at least 30 minutes each day to reading. This will set you apart from the rest of the pack. Most people simply do not read.

2. Pursue What Interest You

Most people just enter a career to be stable. Wealthy ones go after and pursue their dreams and interests. They place a ladder onto the wall they build with intention and mindfulness. If you are working towards a goal that your passionate about then you will put in the hard work required.

3. Get a Mentor

Over 93% of self made billionaires and millionaires attribute their success and wealth to mentors they have had helping to guide and mold them. This places you on the fast track towards success. Maybe a mentor is a teacher, a parent, someone working in your field that is willing to do life and business coaching. There are mentors all around us. We have to be willing to ask for guidance and help.

4. Dream Up Your Goals

Long before a millionaire becomes wealthy they identify their goals. They do what is referred to as dream setting. Take out a piece of paper and start writing down what your ideal life will look like. Put down all of your dreams no matter how large or small. The goals we set are built around those dreams we have. Question yourself and ask yourself “what do I need to do each day to take the steps for my dreams to come true?” Do I have what is required and am I capable of carrying these out and performing these activities?” “Do I have the knowledge and skills?” If you can answer yes then start stepping into action.

5. Create a To Do List

If you want to know how to be successful then realize that goals are great but at the end of the day they are only goals. They require action and the physical work to get goals accomplished. Take your goals and break them down into steps that are action oriented. Make up daily a to do list. Get in the habit of staying on track and stick to your list.

6. Create More Than One Stream of Income

Successful people do not just rely on one source of income. They have several streams of income. Develop three sources of income. Over time when you create more than one income you are able to pull from them in times of turmoil or when your dream is becoming actualized. You will weather the storm at the beginning.

7. Say No To Time Suckers

What ever you invest your time into it is gone once completed. When you take a break and watch television for two hours, time is gone. People spend countless mind numbing hours of their day doing nothing. They just check out. These people believe the day has an abundance of time. They do not value the hours in a day. Successful people watch no more than an hour of television daily. They do not find themselves scrolling on social media like Facebook and twitter.

There will be people who will suck your energy and time. They want to discuss their life and all of the stressful and depressing events going on in it. Get off the phone and do not surround yourself with these negative people. They only want to complain about what they do not have.

How To Be Successful

Consistency and Hard Work

Consistency, consistency, consistency is the answer. Having the discipline and ability to stick to something and complete the task. Successful people are the ones that wake up each morning and say to themselves that they are worthy of success. They are confident and capable. The hardest job seems to be staying consistent and on task.

Tell yourself that you are already a huge success. See the end result. Place yourself there now and walk into your dream. If you think it will be a bad day it will be. Believe it will be a great productive day and it will be. Become the person you are capable of becoming. Dream big, set those goals and take action.
