There's no hard & fast rule when it comes to becoming successful in life. But, there are things you can do and guidelines you can follow to make your dreams more attainable. Here are a few of the most important strategies that you can use to get where you really want to be.
The farm principle:
Farmers do it and Jesus taught this to his disciples. "As we sow, so we shall reap". The principle is that success is not an overnight thing. It's got nothing to do with nightly prayers (couldn't hurt though). And it's got nothing to do with watching others become successful. It's all about consistent effort.
Farmers tend their crops every day without fail, and when the time comes, they reap the benefits.Success is a lot like that. Continuous, consistent effort makes all the difference.Zero shortcuts:
For some, it's a hard pill to swallow: there are no shortcuts. Your destination is a direct result of the level of commitment and effort that you put into becoming successful.
The harder you try, the faster you'll get there. Shortcuts lead to disappointments. Luck may sneak into the mixture on occasion, but shortcuts will spoil it.Map it out:
Your mental state has much to do with your becoming successful, but the physical acts you undertake make a difference too.
Make a plan, stick with it and measure your results. Keeping track of the things that you do and the success rate of those efforts helps you understand what you're doing right and what needs improvement. During this journey of yours, fine-tune your plan and map out the route you want to take. The better you adapt and change according to circumstance, the faster you'll get there.
We all have to deal with stress whether we like it or not. If you want to be successful, you need to learn how to deal with stress. Firstly, you have to learn how to deal with the "daily stuff" in your life. Secondly, you have to learn how to sublimate or channel that stress energy into something that will work for you. Really, stress can be your ally. Turn stress into motivation.
Whenever you encounter stress, push-forward and channel it towards achieving something. Do something positive that helps you forward toward your dream. Do not waver from your goal ? focus.Stay positive:
It's often easier said than done. Try starting-off by eliminating any negative influences in your life. Get them out of the way, and it'll be easier for you to become positive.
Surround yourself with things that will benefit you, hang out with positive, successful or success-minded people. Embrace the positive and shun the negative..Mike Nalbone's "Success University" web site is helping thousands of people achieve their personal and financial goals. Visit Mike's site at: http://team.
