Creating Your Own Success
Do you set goals? Are you working towards your goals? Have you created your own success?
Do you know how to reach success?
“If you stop after reaching success, then you have failed.”
Success can be small or large, but should never be overlooked. Success is obtained after reaching a goal, or taking steps towards a larger goal. The first step in creating your own success is finding what you want to achieve in life. What are your goals? What does success look like to you? What are your dreams? Whether they are big or small, achieving your own success is your purpose in life. You were put on this earth to be more than average and obtain success in your own way. Now you just have to work towards it.
After creating your goals, the first step in creating your own success is believing you can do it. You MUST believe in yourself in order to have any chance of success. If you want to change the world, then you must believe you can change the world! You have to believe even when it is difficult. No matter how hard it may be to obtain, you have to believe it is attainable. If you do not have a belief in yourself, then you have no chance. Life is not going to just hand itself over to you and give you all you dreamed of. You have to go out and take it. Take what is yours! This is your purpose in life so no one, and nothing can take that away from you. Believe and you can achieve!
Though belief in yourself is the most important piece of success, alone it is not enough to reach your goals. You need a plan. If you do not have a plan, you plan to fail. Your plan does not have to be perfect, extremely detailed or even fully complete. Your plan may be just to reach one small goal at a time on your way to a larger goal, and then re-adjusted from there. Plans should never be set in stone, because things are always changing. Life changes, challenges come up, even goals change. We must always be able to adjust and keep moving forward. Make a plan, follow it as long as you can, and adjust as needed to keep progressing.
The final step in creating your own success is action. You must take action if you are ever going to achieve your goals. No one ever achieved anything by staying still. You may be pushed backward over and over again, but as long as you push harder forward you will reach your success. From your plan take steps towards your goal everyday. Even small steps will take you to the top of the mountain. Do at least one thing everyday towards your goals and nothing can stop you from achievement. Be determined and stand tall. Even when it gets hard, and you don’t feel like it, do something that moves you towards your goal. Take action today, tomorrow, and everyday until you surpass everything you ever dreamed of! Make progress everyday and be proud of your small accomplishments for they lead to great success.
If you are looking to create your own success in life, ask yourself these 3 questions; Why, How, and What? From your answers you will find your purpose. Belief in yourself is the Why in your goal. Your plan is the How you are going to achieve it. Taking action is your What you are going to do to get there. These are the pieces to your life puzzle. Go now and create your own success, but remember, success lasts for only a moment. After succeeding, it’s time to look for what is next so you always are pushing for more. Now I ask…Why, How, and What are you going to do next?
Keep getting STRONGer my friends!
Strength to you,
