Success comes in many forms and whether we’re willing to admit it or not, we all strive to have it. Some may associate it with having a multi-million earning career or winning a gold medal in the Olympics, but the underlining truth is that it’s so much broader than that. Just don’t let other people’s standards and opinions diminish your accomplishments. If you truly want to be successful, here is my advice:
TRY, TRY AND TRY AGAIN
Just because something hasn’t worked out the first time doesn’t mean it’s never going to. If you’re truly passionate about it then don’t just give up after one attempt because that won’t get you anywhere and you’re going to be left feeling pretty miserable. Don’t be disheartened by failure because soon enough you’ll be exactly where you’re meant to be and you won’t think twice about the things that didn’t work out.
PUT YOUR HAPPINESS FIRST
I’m a firm believer in happiness being the key to success. As cliché as that might sound, I truly feel that as long as you’re happy in what you’re doing then you’re successful, because who can truly say that being stuck in a job you hate, even though it’s earning you money, is successful? So, follow your passion. Even if you’re not 100% sure what exactly it is just keep working to what you deserve and eventually, with the right amount of determination, you’ll get there.
YOU GET WHAT YOU GIVE
The truth is that you’re only going to get out what you put in. If you have a negative attitude and an effortless approach than you can’t expect to magically see the results you desire. Yes, some people do manage to get far using minimal effort, but then when it comes down to it do they really have what it takes and can they put the work in? If you push yourself from day one then your more than likely going to be ready for anything else that comes your way. Do you think those other people can say the same? Give it your all and hopefully you’ll receive it all.
DON’T COMPARE YOURSELF TO OTHERS
This is something I used to do all the time and the only place it got me was making me feel worse about myself and I’m sure many of you have been in the same position. We’re not all in sync so you can’t expect to see things happening simultaneously. Just because somebody else has achieved something doesn’t mean that you won’t. Also, don’t undermine yourself just because you believe somebody has achieved something ‘greater’ than you, success comes in many forms and everybody sees it differently.
I hope now you can realise that it doesn’t take much to be successful, but if you follow these tips hopefully you’ll stay on track and continue to strive for success. These are just a few of my thoughts but if you have any others please let me know in the comments!
