We all want it. Success.
Success means different to each one of us. Building a multi million dollar business is a success, making a fame in entertainment industry is a success, making their family happy every day is a success, or visiting all countries on earth could be a success. What is your success you define?
Many successful people have common traits. We will look at them today and learn to help our successes come true.
Success is hard. It doesn’t matter what your dream or life goal is. That your personal dream/goal is tough to achieve for you. Without your passion for it, you will not last until you get it. Passion will push you to take risks. It’ll also help you going through the risks lined up ahead.
2. TAKING THE RISK
This is hard. Especially when you get older, we all tend to stay in our comfort zone. How much do you want your dream to come true? Are you willing to do whatever it takes? The bigger dream you have, the bigger risk you will have to take. Do people say you will never make it? Then prepare for the biggest risk you will ever have to take on to get to where you want to be. Jump on that risk. Don’t think it, Do it.
Unless you believe that you can do it, you will not make it. Unless you believe in yourself, nothing will happen.
Having a dream or a goal is natural if you want to succeed in something. But, that’s not all you need. You need a purpose. Why is that your goal? Why is that your dream? What do you really want by achieving your dream/goal? Your purpose of your dream and success will be the engine to your persistence until you accomplish your goal.
For me, personally, this is the toughest part in success, and I know a lot of people agree with me. Sometimes, it all depends on this too. You have to be willing to be the runner in a long (and sometimes lonely) marathon. Your path might be long and slow paced. You’re panting, you’re sweating, and you can’t even see the end. This is where success really tests us. Persistence is the last puzzle you need to complete your success. Don’t let anything stop you. Don’t give up in the middle.
You have one life. You’re the only one who can live that life. If you have had this icky squirms in your heart for a while and you know you will regret it if you don’t try, just jump over the fear and go for it. Start it today. You have the power to change. It’s all up to you.
