Success means different things to different folks

Success is possible to those that believe

Success is one of the often searched words on the internet. A quick search on google and a search for the word “success” will bring up 245,000 search items. The reason why people search for success online is that they desire success. Unfortunately, desire alone is not enough guarantee for you to become successful in life.

Success takes time

Everything in life happens according to our time. Every individual has a specific time for certain things to be accomplished in life. You may look at your friends for example, and keep wondering about the rapid progress they have made in life.

The truth is that everything happens at their own pace. They have their own time and clock and you have yours, so be patient if you desire to become successful in life.

Don’t envy others making progress in life

Jack Ma started Alibaba at age 39. At that age, some of his friends were still struggling to make meaning out of life. Virgin Group was started by Richard Branson when he was 34. That would be considered, a major achievement.

These men achieved success, not because they were looking at their friends and colleagues, but because they intentionally desired success and worked hard towards achieving their goals in life. It all boils down to doing what gives you joy and happiness.

Be happy with little success

Celebrating the little achievements and never getting discouraged is the beginning. Everyone who becomes successful in life started from the very bottom. They never achieved their great accomplishments overnight.

When we are happy with the little success we achieve in life, it opens door to better opportunities. Clinching the bronze medal in the Olympics was a huge achievement for Weightlifter Christine Girard of Canada at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.

Six years later, Christine became a Gold medalist when Maiya Maneza of Kazakhstan and Svetlana Tsarukaeva of Russia who won Gold and Silver were disqualified for taking banned substances. It may have taken years, but hard work surely pays a huge dividend.

Be consistent and success will show up

Consistency is always synonymous with those who achieve great things in life. No matter how slow the progress may seem, keep moving, and never stop trying. What you consistently pursue and desire will eventually become a reality.

It takes a strong commitment to not only your passion but also your personal life and family life to truly become successful.

Business tips for entrepreneurs

Entrepreneurs are always in search of innovations and new solutions to help them achieve success in their business. In this article, I will be highlighting some useful tips that entrepreneurs will find very valuable.

Tips #1

If you’re an entrepreneur, Make sure whatever you’re selling is relevant, useful, and be consistent. People don’t buy just the products but they look out for benefits. You don’t start something one day and disappear the very next day.

Tips #2

The formula for a successful business is: do what you love and love what you do. Turn your talent into a business, not just a hobby. For instance, if you can easily motivate others. You turn your passion for motivational speaking into a business. It is something that can create multiple income streams for you if properly channeled! 

Tips #3

Impressing people isn’t worth it. The more you impress, the poorer you become. The poorer you get, the less they respect you. Stop impressing people by using your little money to buy things you can’t afford and start impressing your future by investing the money instead. Entrepreneurs need capital for investment, not to impress people who don’t even care if you exist.

Tips #4

If you want to double your income and create a new stream of income as an entrepreneur, it may not work the first time. I have tried several ideas in the past and the never worked, but it doesn’t mean those ideas were wrong. You cannot lose by taking action, you only lose when you refuse to work on your dreams.

Tips #5

Building a system around your business is one sure way of ensuring uninterrupted income streams. You can start the process by automating as many parts of your business as possible. Having an online presence, for example, allows you to keep your business open 24/7 without further effort on your part. Modern entrepreneurs have leveraged the awesome power of the internet to increase their business spread.

Tips #6

Building a successful business requires focus. Why? Because that’s how you build momentum. As an entrepreneur, you must remain focused on a particular niche. Don’t get easily distracted by what others are doing. So don’t do multiple things at once. Instead, focus on just one thing, and do it in the best possible way.

As the author puts it: “A scattered focus leads to scattered results.” Business is all about patience. 8 years ago, crude oil was the real deal. Today, lots of investment in that sector has diminished. Those who started web-based businesses 8 years ago are more relevant than ever before. It’s all about focus.

Tips #7

There’s nothing wrong in being a salary earner, but there’s a lot of wrongs if you cant create a plan B from your salary.  Think and make the right choice, because as a salary earner, you can get fired tomorrow or your company can be liquidated. Make your plan B source of income a top priority this year!  A plan B that will grow into another huge income source. Most entrepreneurs started as salary earners and diversified into a business of their own.

success is possible

Success is possible, stop giving excuses

Success can be achieved if one is passionate about achieving it. Your desire must far outweigh whatever fear or doubt may want to hold you back. Nothing can stop an individual whose heart is set on anything in life. The only thing that can stop such an individual is the individual himself.

Matthias Buchinger

A disabled artist and performer who was German by birth, had no hands or lower legs, but yet he had amazing abilities and could play more than ten musical instruments. Not 1, 2, or even 3, but 10 different musical instruments. Standing at just twenty-nine inches tall, Matthias never allowed physical disability to stand in his way. That is the amazing power of someone determined to make a success out of life despite all odds.

Warren MacDonald

He had his two legs amputated after a horrible accident in 1997. The doctor announced to Warren that he would not be able to walk again. But the doctor never said anything about not cycling or climbing and underestimated the unbelievable power of positive energy that lay within the young Australian. Thus with tremendous positive energy to back up his passion for adventure, Warren went on to climb Africa’s tallest mountain – Mt Kilimanjaro.

Bethany Hamilton

Bethany Hamilton is an American surfer whose life remains an inspiration to millions worldwide. She was just 13 years old when her left arm was yanked off by a shark. It was a near-death experience, but the young American never allowed that horrific accident to define her. Hear what she said: “I know life can be hard, but I’ve learned that even the biggest challenges and scariest fears can be overcome, no matter what you’re facing”. She braved all odds and still returned to professional surfing where she won several medals and awards. Nothing can stop you as long as you don’t give up on your dreams. Not even any form of disability could stop Warren from achieving what people thought was impossible.
Stories like this abound everywhere of individuals who ignored their disabilities and still went ahead to perform at their peak level.

In life, there would always be the urge to give one excuse or the other as you desire to achieve success in life. Ignore the reasons why you cannot and hold on to the reasons why you can achieve success despite all odds. Courage is the key and passion is the fuel that will carry you through. The brave Bethany Hamilton shared one secret that kept her going during her difficult moments in life: “Courage means you don’t let fear stop you” 

success

Success is achievable if you follow the principles

Success is one of the most popular words in the world today. I recently undertook a little survey of the popularity of the word by typing it in the google search engine. The search result I got was amazing. I was pleasantly surprised to see search results that were more than 3 billion. This goes to show that billions of individuals are daily searching for ways to become successful in life.

What’s the definition of success?

Success is a relative term that is directly connected to the state of mind of each individual. It can also mean the attainment of one’s goal or aspiration in life. One important fact I have come to discover about success is that it means different things to different folks.

What are the keys to success?

Action

The world is full of people who talk and never do anything about their plans. The key to greatness in life is the ability to translate your vision or plans into action. You don’t need the permission of anyone to start something. A lot of folks wait for the big break before they initiate their vision in life, and such individuals eventually become frustrated in life, because such big breaks never showed up.

Information

Information is one of the things that separate the rich and the poor. The difference between failure and success lies in the ability of the individual to accurately implement the information at his/her disposal. The Global stock market is one of the biggest investment markets in the world with turnover exceeding  $180 billion daily. Millions of individuals are marking fortune off the stock market with available information that is constantly changing on a per-second basis.

Hard work

Laziness is a recipe for poverty and disaster and must be avoided by all means. Any fortune gained through false means cannot stand the test of time as it will soon wither away. Hard work involves consistently doing the same things that have been yielding positive results over the years. It is the ability to put in more than 100% in all you do.

Mindset

The mind is the portion of man where destinies are either made or marred by the choices and decisions we make. When an individual has a positive mindset about wealth and prosperity, it will be easy for such an individual to attain success in life. The opposite can equally occur with individuals who have negative myths about money and prosperity. Their minds become blinded and inactive because of their negative thoughts and decisions.

Passion

Whatever we are passionate about and strive towards will eventually manifest in our life if we don’t give up. Passion is a key factor in the success equation that cannot be ignored. It is a deep hunger for something valuable and useful in life. When this key factor is missing in your life, there would be a lack of desire to attain your goal or destiny in life.

Focus

Focus involves concentrating on a task with all your might and attention without been distracted by external factors. One of the things that easily delay us from achieving our goals in life is a lack of focus. Lots of folks started very well, but along the line, their focus changed from the important to the mundane.

Persistence

Persistence is closely linked to patience, which is a positive virtue that anyone who desires to make it in life must possess. It is the ability to hold on when others have given up hope. When you have done everything humanly possible to succeed in life, you must persevere and quit getting worried.
