What do you want most in life? Do you want wealth, to be happy or be respected by others? It seems as though everyone has a goal list that expands every day. “I want to lose weight” and “I want to get a job” are some of the terms that get thrown around by millions of people each day. But is that what you really want? think of it like this, why would you want to lose weight? A common answer is to be attractive and admired by others. So in reality you are taking individual steps to reach this goal of being attractive and admired. We humans tend to start these types of chain effects early on in our childhood. We may not know it but we were raised to reach the one goal that defines the characteristic that each human being wants, to be successful. For a lot of people this seems as if only some extremely fortunate people can reach this ultimate goal. I’m here to tell you that any person can be successful by following a few easy steps.
The first thing you need to do is to set goals. The reason for this is because I don’t think you can succeed if you haven’t decided what success is. You will want to always set goals so that you know what your target is and why you are working, Write out your goals and steps you can take to achieve that goal. Always remember that a mental note doesn’t always motivate you.
Once you have your goals prioritized and planned out, take action. Once you get an opportunity, act instantly. It doesn’t have to be a grand opportunity it could be an opportunity to learn or experience. Also, Have the mindset of not expecting something huge because you will never be disappointed if the ‘million dollar opportunity’ doesn’t come. You need to realize that everyone started from nothing and you are no different but you can act differently. People shed blood and sweat to get in the position they are in. One example is Arnold Schwarzenegger. Did you know that before his first film, Arnold was a self-made millionaire by the age of 22? He would invest in real estate and sell body building products which helped him earn this status. Do you think he stopped there? Of course he didn’t.
The last tip I want to talk about is having a good mindset. I have been talking a little bit about this subject earlier in the article but I don’t think people understand the importance of this. A good mindset is everything in reaching a goal. Many people use the quote ‘a good mindset is half the battle’ this is false. Since this subject is broad, I cannot give you every single tip regarding a good mindset without leaving a lot of them out. in all honesty, it would take me paragraphs to elaborate on this subject. If I only wrote a couple of sentences, I would feel like I didn’t do this subject justice. But I will give you a quote you can interpret that will hopefully be of good use; “We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.” – Buddha.
In conclusion, being successful is not as difficult as a lot of people assume it is. If you use my tips given and expand on my thoughts, I guarantee that you will find success. Make every day count!
