This Is The Prescription For Success

Updated on June 10, 2011

There are millions of people who aspire to become successful in life. You may also be one among them. But, not all of them succeed. Unfortunately, most of them do not understand the fact that mere wishing to succeed in life will not help them to achieve their aim. Then, what is it that brings success to people? It is the "action habit" that will help people like you to succeed.

If you keep thinking about becoming successful and do not take any action, your aspiration will continue to remain as a wishful thinking. You should decide to swing into action. Unfortunately, there are people who wait for a perfect plan to begin their work. Nothing can be more foolish than this. The truth is that there can not be a "perfect" plan. You should start acting and as you move along your chosen path, you can take corrective steps, wherever necessary.

Mind is a strange phenomenon because when you decide to take action, its power also expands. It immediately gets into contact with the Universal or Infinite Intelligence or whatever name you give it, to get ideas for you. Sometimes, ideas flash in your mind and vanish immediately into thin air. They appear and vanish so quickly that when you try to recollect them, you may not remember them also. Some people get these ideas even when they are in half-sleep. That is the reason you are advised to make use of the oldest and the simplest tools that are available namely a piece of paper and a pencil. Whenever such ideas flash in your mind, you should immediately make a note of them. If you look at them after you wake up, you will definitely find that the ideas are incredibly brilliant. Such is the power of mind. But, you should make it work by deciding to take sincere action.

As said earlier, once you get these ideas, you should put them to use. You can not succeed if you just have ideas with you. There are many brilliant people who have a number of ideas but in vain. They have not moved a bit from where they are. The bitter truth is that they can never succeed if they continue to be inactive, however brilliant their ideas may be. You should implement your ideas with all sincerity and all the resources available with you. You will see results rushing to you as the water gushes when the floodgates are opened. There are people who have risen to dizzy heights by taking appropriate action at the appropriate time. You have thousands of examples in human history to prove this point.

But, you can not expect a rosy path. There will be thorns also and you should be ready to face them. If you have the burning desire and take action with focus, you will definitely find ways to surmount these obstacles easily. Another great thing about the action habit is that opportunities will come to you automatically. You should be able to recognize them because sometimes, they may come even in the guise of problems also. If you are focused, you will be able to spot these kernels of opportunities.

Therefore, if you want to join the bandwagon of successful people, you should decide to take timely action. Once you work towards developing your focus and take appropriate action, you are sure to achieve your goals very quickly.

      The question is, how?

      Many people have great ideas and inspirations, but they lack drive, or feel that they have no way to succeed. How then can they achieve this drive?

      I would reccemend reading books by Robert T. Kiyoski (Rich Dad Poor Dad)

      And books by John C Maxwell (Dare to Dream...Then Do It)

      One of the greatest challenges in life is not finding what you are passionate about, but how you can puruse that dream and make it a reality.
