Motivational Guide: How To Achieve Your Goals, Be Successful & Be Proactive

Anyone can be successful with the right attitude

It's a "can do" approach

Being successful in life is about what you are and who you want to be. If you want to be rich or want to be successful in your life then think positive. Stay committed and achieve your goals.


Being Proactive & Committed

The people who expect money & success without the effort are those who tend to fail. Being successful involves taking initiative and showing commitment. The first step to being proactive is to set your goals and stick to it. The quickest way to achieve your goal is to stay committed. Remember, if you try cheating your way to the top, you probably won't stay there.

Ask a millionaire how they became rich, and the first thing most of them will tell you is "it wasn't easy, but if you put in enough effort, it'll take you a long way".

Don't sit around. Don't lag behind or you'll be eaten by the competition

Key Ingredients to Success

Key points to developing success:

- Be proactive

- Keep at it & Don't give up

- Think & Do - Don't just think about it

- Don't expect to have your business grow by itself

- Put in the time and effort

- Work hard and you'll see the rewards


Taking Action To Reach Success

If you want to achieve something, you have to get out there and do it. Do your research, study, explore your different opportunities to achieve an income, and keep at it. Once you've researched, develop some methods or business ideas and take action. Set up your business, get some start up funding, whether it's from a friend, the bank or any other affiliate or financial institution.

How many times have you seen someone use one of the simplest and easiest ideas and be successful?

How many businesses have you seen which appear to be so similar to another growing company but offers that one extra thing differentiating them from the rest of the market?


The key to success is to get out there and go for it. The longer you hold onto an idea, the more you'll start dwelling on whether you're ambitious enough and whether you can actually make it happen. Well guess what, you too can make it happen!!

Instead of sitting in the same chair all day looking at the computer screen, or fiddling around on Facebook, write down your ideas, think of how you can achieve your ideas, look for sources of funding, do your research, and start developing your product or business idea.

What Are You Waiting For?

It's achievable, and no one will do the hard work for you unless you put in your own effort first. Be proactive, take the right steps, get out there and do. Don't sit and wait expecting for things to happen.

You too can be successful if you put your mind to it.

I love and agree with what you're saying, unfortunately though 99% of everyone won't listen unless you can prove it. But keep up the good work!

Thanks catalystsnstars. Even with hubpages, if you want to expect results, you need to put in the effort. It's no different to any other endeavour.

The allure of get rich schemes is undeniable. But true success comes from one's own actions.

You nailed it on the head jpcmc. It's usually not something that can be done overnight without hard work either.

yep you've hit the nail on the head. I have had a zillion great ideas - some of them have made other people very rich:-) Lack of confidence has been a huge part of the problem but I'm realizing things now and on my way. Great hub.

Thanks for the comment Lizam1. Confidence is huge! The realisation that everyone in this world is equal and that the President or Prime Minister is a human just like either one of us should make you always know and believe that we too can achieve the greatest.

Hi Mmargie1966. I think we all have those moments but need to keep our head up high, even though it can be hard at times. It's all a mental thing.
