How Do We Really Become Successful in Life
Successful Ways of Life
There are varieties of ways to become successful. A lot of inspirational or self-help books are written in relative to this theme. Sometimes, I wonder is it because, most people are ‘expired’ rather than inspired to be motivated to be successful? Or would it be that people want to learn the proven habits from successful people themselves?
So I would like to share my own habits to being successful in any aspect and in what we do in life. We can probably come across hundreds of different ways but they can all be run through. So here are mine:
1- First, know our own core values. No matter how many self-help books we read, if they do not come along the core values we have in our lives, it will be fruitless. Efforts will be spiritless. So the most vital point to focus is to reflect on our own core values. What are the most significant positions in our lives? What do we prioritize? Reflect. Reflect. Reflect. It doesn’t close overnight. Daily, it is essential to reflect on it because our values may change from time to time base on experiences and new learning. From realizing and acknowledging our core values, then we can construct our habits on the road to success.
2- PLAN- It is so difficult and complex when there is no plan yet. How do we get started with our tasks towards success if we don’t have any blueprint to our master design?
3- Visualize- This is not anymore a new regimen to successful people. Even elite athletes visualize their performance before the competition. Who says we cannot use this strategy to increase our productivity? How to? Get clear on what we want to achieve today, and then VISUALIZE pulling off these activities efficiently and successfully. Make it a habit to visualize your success before you start your day then we become masters in our own performances.
4- Work with Intention- I believe this also includes the commitment to finish what we start. Is it our goal to just finish the task or project, and that’s it? Or do we have the purpose to emerge as the best in what we do? If we only set our expectations to just finishing the job, we are just one of those regular employees or workers who are just satisfied to receive salary regularly. There’s nothing wrong with it but whether you are recognized or not by your hard work and excellence, a good intention always acquire a best seat in the house. It may not be right now or today, but it will be soon.
5- Gratitude- In everything we do, be thankful. Thankful for the opportunity, the people we work with, the tasks assigned to us whether they’re laid-back or complicated. Even with the adversaries and obstacles we encounter, we should be thankful because in the future, the skills we acquire from these experiences will become very handy for next projects or opportunities to become another step ahead.
