How successful are you in life?

Have you ever asked yourself, “Why are there people who are successful in their personal and career life?” Do you find your life so empty and feels that you don’t know what to do and nowhere to go? You start to complain a lot, so grumpy and irate about others enjoyment. You tend to pretend that you are doing okay but within you, you are not. Well, here are simple tips that might help you win the race to success in your personal and career life.

COMMITMENT

As mentioned in the Secrets of the Millionaire Mind written by T. Harv Eker, “The definition of the word commit is to ‘devote oneself unreservedly.’ This means holding absolutely nothing back; giving 100 percent of everything you’ve got to achieving wealth. It means being willing to do whatever it takes for as long as it takes. This is the warrior’s way. No excuses, no ifs, no buts, no maybes --- and failure is not an option.”

Does his statement apply to many people? Oh well, there are a lot of us who actively starts something new but in the middle of it we tend to dwindle and then eventually lost our interest and ends up nothing. We begin to do a project but never finish it. We enroll in school to attain an education, but parents later find out that we have dropped from it. We have ideas on mind but never made the first move. We try to justify our actions for not doing things. We become defensive and tend to blame others for our failures. We give a lot of reasons for not doing things.

Our commitment creates the foundation to our success in life. Commit yourself to the fullest and you build a strong foundation to win the race. If you only do things half-heartedly, then you will also get a partial output that might not lead you to any accomplishment. If a person has the will to succeed, then he will always finds the way to begin with it. Stop complaining but fully dedicate yourself to what you want to achieve in life. There are no easy ways to fortune; you have to get it the hard way to earn success. Your commitment contributes to how you will handle difficulties along your way. Ask yourself this question; “How committed am I to my work? How committed am I to my family and friends? How committed am I to succeed in life?

ACCEPTANCE

The way we see ourselves affects the way we look at others and our society. Acceptance of ourselves, both our strengths and weaknesses, contributes on how we deal and accept others, too. It contributes to our emotional maturity and social standing. If we think positively, we see the world as a beautiful place to live. We tend to be optimistic and hopeful in everything that we do. We don’t easily quit and give up because we know what we are capable of doing. We smile and we feel light along the course of our travel in life. We easily give and love to help others. We become a fine giver and a good receiver, too. We develop an inner self that is full of life and optimism. Our optimism contributes to our success.

However, if we look at ourselves as undeserving, we will think that we are always not fit to do something good. We tend to shy away from discussions or conversation. We fear to be rejected, but at times our fears has the possibility to develop our emotions immaturely. We tend to blame others for our weaknesses and we fail to recognize our strengths. We see others as people who will always take advantage of us . . . our competitor and abuser. We carry a lot of internal baggages of frustration and disappointment that may lead to depression. We now tend to become a repressed giver and a bad receiver. Our pessimism contributes to our failures.

As T. Harv Eker says, “Whatever results you’re getting, be rich or poor, good or bad, positive or negative, always remember that your outer world is simply a reflection of your inner world. If things aren’t going well in your outer life, it’s because things aren’t going well in your inner life. It’s that simple.”

SET YOUR TARGET GOAL

During my Performance Management training program, I usually tell my supervisors and managers to create not only a departmental goal that is SMART but it should always be SMARTER - - - that is Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Result Oriented, Time-bounded, Extending Capabilities, and Rewarding.

I won’t discussed in details the acronym SMARTER goal, but rather I want to share with you that setting our target goal is very important in our personal and career life in order to become successful. When I graduated in college, the first thing that I did was to set my specific goals and made a time frame as to when to achieve it. I set goals as to what will be the first thing that I will buy out of my hard earned money, as to when I will get my timely promotions at work, when to travel internationally, or even a time frame for investments. I make my own plan of actions, organize things and spend wisely, too. I made it at an early age and it was not easy but really, it was very rewarding.

Ask yourself these questions: What do I want to achieve in life? When do I want to accomplish it? How much time can I spend? Is it realistic and achievable? Who will be involved? What are my resources?

SUCCESS can only be measured by YOU. Others consider success as living a simple life and being happy with their family and friends. There are some who measures success through their wealth and others through their accomplishments. Whatever measurements you use as long as you set your specific goals to success, you will definitely reach your destination right. It is like driving a car or running a race, you need to know where to go.

HONE YOUR SKILLS

As we always say, “Learning is a continuous process.” In order to excel in anything, we need to develop our skills. For instance, if we are new in writing, let’s try to learn from others experience or by simply reading their articles. Feedback, may it be constructive or destructive, is also one way of learning. I did not immediately publish this article because I tried to read the suggested articles and study the different commands in Hubpages. I learned something and little by little I believe that I will still improve in the field of writing. We learn and we grow. We now start to hone our skills.

Education and attending seminars are also another way of learning. We can enroll in a course that can prepare us to handle bigger responsibilities. If we want to work on our cooking skills, then we can enroll in a cooking class. Who knows, you might someday become a chef. If we think we have the ability to sell, try to attend Marketing and Selling Techniques Seminars. If you have the interest in photography, you can join a Photography Club. Try to gather facts and information about your field of interest. This will help you a lot.

Our expertise in our own field will lead us to success in life. But be diligent in honing your skills to perfection.

Lastly, I want to share my simple formula for success using CASH as my first step - - -

Romans 5:3 - 4  tribulation produces perseverance; and perseverance , character; and character, hope
Romans 5:3 - 4 tribulation produces perseverance; and perseverance , character; and character, hope

There will be people who will be willing to help you; however, many will try to pull you down. There are still those with a “crab mentality”, which means pulling down others when you see them rising up. Beware of them! Those who have confidence will encourage you, but those with low self-esteem will try to aggravate you. There will be problems, hindrances and frustrations along the way. You will also make mistakes, but let not mistakes tumble you down. You will encounter a lot of obstacles but if you have the CASH on hand, you will eventually have the tools to survive.

These tips are simple to remember that is --- CASH! It relates to money, our social status and our future. But it would take your time, mind and soul to master it in order to win the race. So what are you waiting for? TODAY is the right time to start. . . CASH it now!
