Many of us are driven by a need to have success in our lives. This can be financial, career, relationship or personal success. There is at least one thing in everyone's life that they want to succeed at. What that is and how it looks is unique to the individual. All of the successful people that I have interviewed, know or have encountered had 5 similar things they did to create the success in their lives.
“The Time is Now” Anthem of Success[Tweet “Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.―Winston Churchill”]
What a lot of people don't realize is that to achieve success in any areas of your life, you need to be consistent. There is no magic wand that you can wave and “presto” you have success. Use these 5 tips consistently as well as move forward towards your goals and you will find the success you desire. Those who sit around wishing for success or complaining that they don't have success yet, will not move any closer to having success.
The one quality that every successful person that I know has, is a sense of gratitude. The successful people I am talking about are the ones that have long term success in different areas of their lives. Not the ones that have an overnight success that go on to lose it later. Gratitude for what they have, what they have achieved and those that have helped them on their way. It is not a sense of entitlement, but a true sense of gratitude that shines from their lives.
Successful people also are not afraid of making mistakes or hard work. Mistakes are part of the human condition and part of our path of growing. If you spend time trying not to make mistakes or get it perfect on the first try, you will miss out on many opportunities. Successful people always do at least one thing towards their goal every day and work at it. They do not sit around wishing that it will come true. They always have forward movement. If a mistake has been made, they reassess and continue going towards their goals.
The most successful people I know lift others up. This is not a one person journey, we are all in it together. To achieve success there will be people on your journey that support you, help you, teach you and so much more. By reaching out and supporting, lifting them up and being kind will help propel you forward on your path of success.
The most important tip for success is to come from a place of joy. Coming from a place of joy, delight and happiness creates ease in your journey. It also attracts other like minded people along your way. If your path to success is not full of joy, perhaps you might want to look at what you are choosing to be successful at and see if it is in your highest good.
Success looks different to all of us. We get to choose what we want to be successful at and how it unfolds in our lives. Using these five tips will help you on your journey.
