Eight Reasons Why People Succeed in Life...
1. be inspired to START
Jim Rohn said, “You don’t have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great!” Successful people have learned to embrace their challenges and overcome their fears to achieve their goals.
2. BUILD your MINDSET
Life has its challenges – successful people have learned to take responsibility in managing destructive emotions, and discover new solutions to overcome their obstacles, rather than playing the victim.
Remember – you are in control of your values and beliefs. Learn to let-go of what’s not serving you to move towards your desired results and highest potential.
3. EXERCISE OPTIMISTISM, PERSISTENCE, HONESTY & PURPOSE
Jut like doing a workout – personal development is not a one-time event, but an ongoing process. Successful people work on developing and practising optimism; connecting with people and activities that inspire you; living life with integrity and learning to be more honest with yourself and others; and evaluating what motivates you to build a successful life with meaning and purpose.
4. HANGOUT WITH SUCCESSFUL LIKE-MINDED PEOPLE
Successful people surround themselves with individuals who share the same values, purpose and inspiration. Relating with like-minded people challenges you to grow through a process called neuro-plasticity of the brain and improves your problem-solving skills and emotional intelligence.
This may mean it’s time to review who you socialise and connect with on a regular basis, and decide if they are supporting your growth!
5. INVEST TIME IN SELF-DEVELOPMENT
Successful people appreciate the value of continuous learning and making time for doing things that nurtures their creativity, health and wellbeing.
We all go through times that we lack sleep, exercise or nutrition, but for long-term success and happiness you must value yourself on top of all other priorities.
Learn to create habits of successful people. Start the day by doing something you love, such as a workout, yoga, exercise, meditating, journaling, reading and practice to manage your self-talk and becoming more open-minded.
Do what works for you to set-up your day in the best possible mindset.
6. FOCUS & PRIORITISE your goals & define your fears
We all experience at different times in life the signs and symptoms of a fear of failure. However, successful people have a clear vision and keep focused on their mission. They have focused purposeful, focused plan, but remain flexible enough to handle unexpected challenges.
Successful people know that purpose drives goals – they regularly clarify their purpose, ensure they are congruent with their purpose, and align their purpose with well-defined short, medium and long-term goals.
Visualise and prioritise WHY, WHAT and HOW you would like to accomplish your purpose on a daily, weekly, monthly and yearly timeline.
7. IMPROVE your ABILITY TO MAKE DECISIONS & DELEGATE
Successful people know how to make difficult decisions. Your ability to make decisions can change your situation instantly and affect you for the rest of your life – it could mean the difference between making or breaking business deals, planning and meeting your personal and financial objectives to simply deciding what’s the best food choice for your health and well-being.
Surround yourself with a trusted team of people who can balance your strengths and weaknesses and are prepared to support your journey.
8. REVIEW & MONITOR your PERFORMANCE
To win or lose is only a measure of perception in comparison to others. Play your own game in life and recognise how you can improve for the next time.
Successful people learn to forgive themselves rather than beating themselves up, and enable themselves to grow throughout the process. Focus on what you have learned, rather than ‘mistakes’, and always look forward!
Recognise the power of your choices and that you are responsible for the results in your life.
Through my experience working with a diverse range of successful people, I have learnt that to build a mindset that produces meaningful results requires a commitment to caring for your health and well-being, becoming more self-aware of your thoughts and feelings, and seeking truth through continuously questioning why and what you value and believe.
WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE SUCCESSFUL TO YOU?
The first step is to take the time to define and measure what success means to YOU.
I have been working on my professional self-development since 1995 learning how to build a more meaningful balanced life. In that time I helped thousands of people like you achieve well-deserved results, and now you too can start changing the game of how you play life.
