Many people that I met in my life, either they were business people, or leaders or ordinary people struggled with one particular thing, success. No one of them actually knew what success is. No one. They all thought that if they succeed with one thing in their lives, either that was a new job position or they got married they reached their goal.
Can you find the success in their goals? To some degree, yes. There is nothing wrong with their thinking, but success is not limited with few accomplishments you’ll have in your life. Let me ask you this, what’s next after you’ve reached your goals?
It’s a very tricky question I want you all to remember it, and ask yourselves every night before you go to bed.
You won’t find the answer so easily, I can promise you that.
When you point all your efforts in one or two goals you limit yourself. I don’t suggest to disperse your attention everywhere and fail in everything. Instead, organize for success, one step at a time, but let each step include one lesser goal. Every accomplished task is success, a reached goal.
And why I’m telling you this? If you have one major goal in your life and you accomplish it with ease, what will be the next chapter in your life? Many will stop there, like they’ve reached everything that can be reached in one lifetime, but that’s not true at all.
Look on that like this, you’ve reached the top. You are standing there, on that sharp place. Where else you will go, there aren’t stairs to climb to the skies?
Interesting viewpoint, isn’t it?
Every accomplished goal is success and you should be proud with it. But do we accomplish goals every day? Yes we do. That’s the thing, success is a lifestyle, the way how you perform even when it seems that the world will brake on your shoulders. Your attitude, your mindset and your approach to life will determine the success.
Don’t limit yourself with one goal. That’s not the whole picture you’ll get about success, instead of that live with success, embrace each tiny accomplished goal, and celebrate like “it’s a big deal”. Start reaching your goals, accept this new lifestyle. Do something, change something, don’t just sit on your butt waiting for some wizard to come and change your life. You are responsible for your success because you are not living it!
Don’t search for excuses why you are feeling like this or like that, you are responsible for your current situation. If you accept this, you will succeed because success is granted to those who try and give their best.
If you’ve struggled in your life, count that as an advantage because you will be able to handle the hard times which you will meet later in your life.
Before I finish this article I just want you to remember this also: Success is a lifestyle. There will be obstacles further in your life, but if you perform with this mindset you’ll be able to keep the positive thinking and surpass them easily.
