WHAT IS SUCCESS FOR YOU?
WHAT IS SUCCESS FOR YOU?
Define Success? You probably are not sure right now what that really means right? Or you have some vague idea from celebrities that you’ve seen on TV or heard about.
But here is the deal… you’re not the only one! Most people don’t know what success is and moreover they never defined what success means to them so when they go after it, they are usually following somebody else’s dream! And that is a sure recipe to failure.
DEFINITION OF SUCCESS
1. The accomplishment of a goal or purpose.
2. Favorable outcome, positive result, victory, triumph.
3. Success in life could be defined as the realization of one’s goals.
Now there could be an infinite number of definitions for Success since there are billions of people and to each person success may be different. However, these 3 definitions seem to cover what SUCCESS is, since it means to achieve YOUR GOALS and TRIUMPH in life!
That brings us to our next and very important question…
WHY MOST PEOPLE DON’T ACHIEVE SUCCESS?
Some will defend there is a number of variables that makes it impossible to be a sure thing while others defend there are certain laws, traits and habits that a person must develop and apply in order to be successful.
Overall there seems to be a common sense and agreement on ONE major thing! An underlying factor that it is irrefutable by observation alone:
“One cannot get to where he wants to go if he does not know
where he is going in the first place!”
While this could be debatable on the assumption that one might get there anyway by mistake, or favored by the “Gods” or by some other hocus pocus, here we are interested in dealing with facts.
Example: if you are not clear on what you want in life or have any specific purpose you may end up a millionaire or famous by some sheer stroke of “luck”, however that wouldn’t mean necessarily SUCCESS for YOU!
HOW TO DEFINE SUCCESS FOR YOU
So how do we define and measure this thing called SUCCESS that the majority dreams of and the very few actually achieve?
1. You would have to define what is SUCCESS for YOU. What do YOU want to BE-DO-HAVE?
2. You need to WRITE it (or draw) down – Your GOALS!
3. It needs to cover the different aspects and needs of your LIFE. Not just one thing.
4. It has to have a time frame, a date of when are you intend to achieve it by.
5. You need to keep writing your goals and re-evaluate what you want to accomplish in your life. Preferably on a regular basis, specially when you have a setback.
MIND vs. MECHANICS
Your level of achievement at anything is a reflection of how well you were able to focus on it.
Because the only thing that is holding you back is The Way You Think.
It’s a two parts process. One is mental, the second one is mechanics. The mental part, is the way you think, is senior to all the mechanics involved with the problem or challenge that you are trying to solve, the goal you are trying to achieve.
When things get rough, right down your goals, draw them or visualize them in your head or in front of you. This is how you reinforce the BIG PICTURE, the final outcome!
This is how you overcome doubts, FEARS having a bad day or a failure. Redirect your attention to your GOALS!
When you dream or set GOALS., DREAM BIG. Don’t put any limits on it, cause if you do, you are already setting yourself up for “failure”.
What do you have to loose if you DREAM BIG and set “unrealistic” goals? The worst thing it could happen is you may come up short but think about it… you still achieved and did better than you ever imagined!
TAKE MASSIVE ACTION
You got to overtake action in order to guarantee the achievement of your goals. Most people under take action in the pursuing of their goals and that’s why they “fail”.
What is Procrastination? Procrastination is the action of delaying or postponing something. Procrastination will destroy your DREAMS! So work intensively, passionately, obsessively at achieving your GOALS. It’s like a muscle the more you do it the stronger, better, more certain and confident you will be. And that in itself will kill procrastination instead of your dreams.
NEVER GIVE UP
Persistence is the trait that ALL successful people have. There is no such thing as failure, there is however lack of courage and persistence to keep going in spite of ALL the set-backs in the achievement of ones GOALS & DREAMS!
1. Define SUCCESS for YOU.
2. DREAM BIG!
3. Write down YOUR GOALS.
4. Take MASSIVE ACTION in order to achieve your GOALS.
5. Persist, Never Give Up.
Of course all of this is so much easier if you know what you really, want and if you have defined what is SUCCESS for you.
I want to help you to achieve your goals and have massive SUCCESS in your life.
My hope is one day when you look back YOU will feel that your life was a good life well spent. That YOU did what YOU intended, because YOU knew what YOU wanted.
My wish for you is that you achieve your goals and have a lot of success in life. And remember to…
