The Key Factors to Being Successful
No matter what your role!
If you look at all successful people, you will find that from an early age, they had an idea of what they wanted to become…Not crystal clear perhaps but certainly the path that they intended taking!
The sooner that we consider what it is that we want from our lives, the sooner that we can start to create some powerful GOALS…It’s this that gives the motivation to succeed…No GOALS means no motivation!
Having a powerful VISION of what success will look like is important…What the eye can picture, the mind can achieve, however a vision is longer term. The importance of GOALS is to give clearer focus on the journey.
Having the right attitude is critical. A combination of high work ethic and a “can do” mentality. The great Mohammed Ali was once asked what he would have done had he not been the Heavy Weight Champion of the World…His answer, “I don’t know but whatever I had been, I would have been the best at it in the World”…ATTITUDE!!
Mind set and belief go hand in hand…You can create a winning mind set and without this, the success that you may aspire to will remain just a dream. How we picture ourselves, our own self-image, our self talk…All of this needs to be totally aligned to an “enabling” belief set and not a “hindering” one. How we see ourselves, talk to ourselves internally will shape our own self-worth. We have to BELIEVE.
Finally, you need RESOLVE…Nothing always goes to plan, and it’s how we deal with adversity that determines who we are and our future success. Similarly, once we have overcome challenges on the journey, we will grow our confidence. We can then look back, reflect, learn, and move on.
Success is not luck. No one is born lucky. Success is earned in life.
We all have choices…SUCCESS does not come lightly, but it’s worth reaching out for!
“Success is not final; failure is not fatal: It is the
courage to continue that counts.”
Winston S. Churchill
