Tips on how to be successful in your life.

Updated on March 24, 2011

Set a goal a target or a destination

Okay first try and set a goal a target or a destination.

Where do you want to be in six months time ? think and write it down

Where do you want to be in 12 months time ?

Where do you want to be in two years time?

Where do you want to be in five years time ?

Look this all sounds a little trite and who is this bloke to be giving me a sermon on managing my life?

Well all I can say for now is I wish someone had drummed this into me at twenty. I am now fifty.

I cannot emphasise this enough; Time will pass quickly and you can quickly reach a point where you might wish you had made more plans and set more goals.

If you caught a plane. You would expect the pilot to know where I was flying right. Hes developed the skills and experience and discipline to get him and you where you want to go. Life is pretty much the same. The difficulty starts with the first step. Where do I want to go. we have all agonised and pontificated over this one. My simple advise. Just make a plan for somewhere. No matter how small or how big. Just do it !

When you've done that you need to tailor the other things that go with it.

Finances, education, health, relationships career and family. somehow you get them in sync by aligning all of them so the boat is pretty much heading in the direction you want. Look you might change your mind mid way. You might choose to steam towards Malta instead of New York it does not matter.

The worse thing you can do is leave yourself in dry dock to rust away. That is a sure fire way to fail at anything and everything !. Current skillsyou have will atrophy worse your attitude and outlook will become very undesirable. No man is an island so have good relations with those you work love bank shop and travel with will make a difference to your day to day living. This needs positive work by all of us.
