It is easy to talk about success, but it is really tough to achieve success in different aspects of life. It is difficult to find what makes a person successful, many researchers and psychologists have tried to infer the formula of success, but no concrete answer has been drawn yet. Still we can say that there are few things that make a person different from rest of the people and this uniqueness make them successful. Let’s decode the secret of success and try to make our life successful in all spheres.
We all make big New Year resolutions, set goals and many of us make future plans, set goals, but the problem is we do not continuously strive to achieve the goals. Let’s create a list here and find out how any particular quality can contribute to one’s success.
You become what you think: Think positive & good and you feel the power of positive vibes. It will fill you with good thoughts and positive energy, on the contrary pessimistic thinking will only dishearten the person and will discourage them from taking initiatives. It is my personal observation that positive thinking enhances willpower and willingness to face the challenges. Always remember positive things happen to positive people.
Set your dreams & goals: set your goals, chalk out a plan to reach it and work to achieve it. Resolution that is not written is merely a dream. To convert your dream into a reality note it down and draw a concrete plan to achieve it. The reason we often fail to achieve our New Year resolution is because we did not note it down on paper. Track your success and live your dream.
Action-plan: it is not words but actions that bring success. It doesn’t matter whether you take a big leap or small steps but it is necessary to take regular action towards your goal and work continuously to achieve it. Ask yourself what your plans for your dreams are and how you will achieve it.
Be a learner: sounds clichéd? But it is true. To be successful in your endeavor it is important to learn new skills, keep yourself updated and apply your knowledge. Be an avid learner and realize how learning can benefit you in different aspects of your life.
Be persistent and work hard: Success is a marathon, not a sprint. Never give up. The way to success is full of hurdles and competitions and only persistent players will reach the end. There is no shortcut to success. So work hard and try untiringly to achieve the goal. It is the only way to reach your goal.
Keen sense of analyzing details: figures and data are useful if they are being inferred in the right manner. A good learner always learns from their past mistakes, analyzes situations carefully, and checks all the pros and cons and only then proceeds towards any decision. Spend time in collecting useful data and analyze it for significant information, but don’t get too involved in data and figures or else you will miss the main objectives.
Focus: successful people know how to best utilize their time and money. Focus on your task, manage your resources intelligently and get the most from the available resources. Remain focussed on your goal and manage your time smartly so that you can achieve your goal.
Be innovative: Either be part of the crowd or be the one among the crowd, the choice is yours. Explore your dimensions and break the set pattern of thinking and reach your dream. To reap the fruits of the hard work you have to develop innovative thinking.
Communicate effectively: learn to express yourself positively and it is equally important to learn what other people are trying to say or what their motives are. Successful people know how to communicate their ideas and how to comprehend other’s views and ideas.
Be responsible: Take responsibility for your actions and decisions or the above mentioned points won’t matter.
Success is like a tree it will not grow overnight, one has to be persistent and honest in their approach for better results. In addition to the above the individual or employee will be successful provided he has working knowledge about what he is doing in the organization.
