Six Things That Will Guarantee Your Success
What is a success?
Few people pause to consider what it truly means to achieve success in their own lives. As Jim Rohn said, "If you don't design your own life plan, chances are you'll fall into someone else plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much."
Realize the meaning of success
If we don't answer this question we can end up climbing the wrong ladder and pursue someone else version of success. We get to top only to discover we climbed the wrong mountain. We achieve our goals to realize they were the wrong ones. It's a disaster few people are able to recover from. In my opinion the path to success begins by asking yourself, What makes me happy?
The way to success
Road to success is not easy
Many people have a different approach to the meaning of success. They have a different goals and ambitions in their lives. They set a pathway for their lives. They have certain norms and set standards for their routines. We can't achieve success until we are not mentally prepared to face the difficulties and challenges of the world. It is not easy to survive in this world and the getting succeed without taking risks.
Ways that guarantee your success
Following are the six ways which guarantee success of most of people.
1. Don't fear from failure
Success always demands two things.
- Accepting failures
Diversity is a variety of life. Sometimes you succeed but many times you have to face the reality of failure. It's almost impossible to go through life without experiencing failures.
Most of us fear from the failure in our lives. But we have to understand that anyone who has ever achieved anything has also failed many times. Failures teach us many things about ourselves that we would never have learned otherwise. For instance, failure can help us discover how strong we are? Failing at something can help us discover about our truest friends or help us find unexpected motivation to succeed.
Often, valuable sights come only after a failure. Accepting and learning from those insights is key to succeed in life.It is easy to find successful people who have experienced failure. For example:
- Michael Jordan is widely considered to be one of the great basketball players of all time. And yet, he was cut from his high school basket team because his coach didn't think that he had enough skills.
- Warren Buffet, one of the world's richest and most successful businessman, was rejected by Harvard University.
Richard Branson, owner of Virgin Empire, was a school drop-out.
"Failure is not to be feared. It is from failure the most growth comes".
2. Work hard
You can achieve anything in your life. If you has a desire to get it, work for it and get back up again every time you fall. Hard Work can also beat talent. The hard worker in the room is always going to beat the talented guy who doesn't work hard. In the end may be not every time, but in end hard work always wins. Talent, intelligence, good education and even opportunities do not guarantee you anything in this world. This world is riddled with talented and smart people who never achieved anything of significance. This world is full of intelligent people who never made it. This world is full of expensively educated children. That are outperformed by high school dropouts. Believe me talent will not get anyone anywhere, if he don't work for it.
"The one who is hungrier to reach the top will always get there before the talented guy."
Talent is important but it is not enough to obtain success. In the end, hard work always win. I am not ignoring the importance of talent but it is not a way to get success.
Equation of success
Success=hard work +passion +talent
If talent =0
Then it will become
Success=hard work +passion
But if hard work =0
Then it will become
In the end
Work and Hard work>> Talent
Success is not easy and is certainly not for the lazy
3. Don't depend on others
"Don't depend on anyone in this world because even your own shadows leaves you when you are in darkness".
You should never expect others to do your work. Not even your partner, friend or your boss. They are all busy with their own needs. No one will make you happy or achieve your goals for you. It's all on you. Sometimes the people that are hugging you have a knife for your back. So in order to get success try to rely on your own resources. If opportunity does not come built a door.
4. Believe in yourself
"Believe in yourself, and the rest will fall into your place. Have faith in your own abilities, work hard and there is nothing you can't accomplish."
Believe in yourself is a road to success. You can succeed anything with self-confidence. If you feel inferior and inadequate, it will interfere with your expectations and hopes. What is most important is your mental attitude. Being your own best friend and always boosting up your self-esteem is the most forceful as well as persuasive thing you can do to enhance your confidence. Sometimes people say the most insulting thing about themselves, without realizing the damaging and undermining things about themselves. This leads to inadequacies and inferiority complex. It is appalling to know the large number of people hampered and made miserable by their self-generated inferiority complex. Nevertheless it is not something totally incurable. It can be cured by developing self-confidence and faith in yourself. Sometimes all the distance that is separating and parting you from your goals is in your mind. If you remove those mental barriers, you would see that you could just reach out and grab what you have been pursuing for so long.
Another way to develop self-confidence is to reassure yourself that if you meet failure today, it is not the end of life, because tomorrow will give you another chance. If you suffer from terrible disbelief in yourself, the adopt a technique of opposite thinking, that is, adopt positive thinking. This way you can regain faith in yourself. There is a trick to treat yourself. Assume yourself as a treasured friend, whose company you enjoy. One way to improve, is to write down experiences, turning points, successes,aspirations of your life and what matters most to you. Quantify your five big achievements and remember the struggle you did for them. This will make you realize that you can do anything.
"To be champ you have to believe in yourself, when no one else will".
(Sugar Ray Robinson)
Construct your determination with sustained effort, controlled attention, and concentrated energy. Opportunities never come to those who wait. They are captured by those who are dare to attack.— Paul J. Meyer
Its your turn, success is in your bucket.
5. Introduce new ideas
Coming up with innovative ideas is a great way to make huge contributions to your success. Your ideas implemented can be extremely rewarding. But to maximize your chance to succeed, you must be strategic. Make sure that your ideas are logical and applicable. Never fear from implementing them nor from their outputs. If you just explain the value in your idea people will understand it and accept it.
"People who don't travel cannot have a global view, all the see is what's in front of them. Those people cannot accept new things because all they know is where they live."
6. Don't estimate your results seeing others
In your life sometimes, you got stuck while opting carriers and life goals. Sometimes people have a very bad opinion on the results and outcomes of your choices. They may say that you can't do this and often support their ideas by giving a lot of examples about people who already failed while choosing that field. But i think if you are determined for your career and you think it is a best choice for you then go and opt it. It is sure that with sheer determination and hard word you will prove other people wrong.
For example there was man, whose name was Michael George Hussey. He was a very good athlete of his age. He hit on a wild idea of becoming a Court acrobat. Without listening others he worked for it and stuck to it long enough, and remained determined in his mission. He ultimately succeed in achieving his ambition in more than sixty years. The message of mine is only this that a person who remains determined and keeps on his struggle wins his goals.
