20 Ideas to Be More Successful in Life

Updated on December 24, 2015

We all want to be successful at work, in our lives, and in our relationships. People define success in different ways. Some see it as having money or having the latest gadgets. Others see it as what they give back to the world and the relationships they have. No matter what your definition of success is, though, these twenty ideas should help you to be more successful in your life:

1. Work at something you enjoy and that is worth your efforts
2. Give people more then they expect and do it with a positive attitude
3 Be the most positive and enthusiastic person you know
4. Forgive yourself and others
5. Be generous – Do not expect anything in return either. 4. 4. When you give without expecting something back it makes it that much better.
6 Be grateful – The little things in life are what make it worth living. Remember to be thankful for them.
7. Be persistent – Try, try, try again. Most people are not successful on their first shot. It may take more effort for you then you would like, but eventually you will succeed.
8. Save money no matter how little you make
9. Treat others the way you want to be treated
10. Always keep improving
11. Do things right – Do not just half do things. Do it right or not at all. That is the hallmark of a really successful person.
12. Understand that happiness is not measured on how much money you make or what things you have but on how you use them and who you are with
13. Be loyal – To your friends, to your employers, and most of all to your ideals. Do not go with the crowds. Instead do what you know is right and you will succeed.
14. Stay honest – If you never lie then you can never get caught in a lie. Simple as that.
15. Motivate yourself – we all have periods where we feel unmotivated. The best thing to do is learn what motivates you and make the effort to stay motivated continually, no matter the circumstances.
16. Make decisions even if that means you sometimes make mistakes
17. Do not blame anyone else
18. Be bold
19. Take good care of people and things you love
20. Don’t do anything you wouldn’t want someone to find out about


These ideas are simple, but they can change your life if you follow them. Remember that success does not mean you never fail. It just means you get up and keep going despite the setbacks.
