There are few people who truly DONâ€™T want to succeed in life. Most of the people I know that arenâ€™t successful are there because of choices they make. If you want to make things happen in your life, you have to be ready to put something into it.
Think Positive Things
Someone once told me a story about a POW who never played golf in his life, but while he was captive he would play in his mind every day. He pictured how to swing the club and imagined the feel of the ball as it connected with the perfect swing. When he was finally freed, one of the first things he did was go play a real game of golf. His first game through he shot a 74. He had pictured the game in his mind so many times that it became a reality. Think yourself to success.
Know What You are Striving For
You have to be focused to be successful. Changing your vision every day only leaves you confused and probably confuses the ones around you who want to be supportive. There must be a definite goal in mind in order for you to reach your destination. You canâ€™t take a trip without knowing where you are going â€“ or else you will spend a lot of time, gas, and money trying to get to no where in particular.
Action is required for every success to come to life. No amount of dreaming will take you anywhere if you donâ€™t put your dream into action. That means that if you want to be a successful writer you MUST write and then you must send your writing to everyone! If you want to start a business, you must make a plan and put it into action. Things must be done in order for things to get done!
Being successful means knowing the truth. There are things I would have loved to accomplish in my life, but they are not where my gifts and talents lie. Being a dancer was a childhood fantasy (except that Iâ€™m only 5â€ tall and have more curves than an on-ramp in LA). I still dance for fun, but thatâ€™s as far as it goes. You have to know the truth about your dreams and be willing to accept the things that you CAN NOT change. Hereâ€™s a hint: If you donâ€™t know for sure, then ask someone you can trust (or try out for American Idol 😉 ).
There are so many ways to be successful in life â€“ and a big part of it depends on what you consider successful. No matter what you want to be or where you want to go, you must have a positive attitude about life, you must know what success means to you, you must put action to your dreams, and you must live in reality when it comes to those dreams. Your success lies in your hands. What are you going to do with it?
