Let’s redefine success. Success can be hard but not an impossible thing to achieve. I want to shape your mind in the right direction for a successful life.
Many of the people have a misconstrued definition of success. People look at success as a destination like it is someplace where we have to reach.
Actually, achievement isn’t an objective or goal — it’s a MINDSET you go up against to accomplish your objectives. You don’t simply drop it once you accomplish your objectives. Rather, you receive it so you can convey it with you for eternity.
Success is not something which means having lots of money or material. Remember every rich person may not be successful and every successful person may not be rich. But in today’s society, people are just looking for quick rich schemes, which they think can make them healthy wealthy and wise.
Achieving success is not an easy TASK, it’s a game of mind that has to be played dedicatedly all way long your life.
Our brain wants to use the path of less hard work, where there are comfort and ease. But NO if we really want a successful life we have to challenge our mental barriers whole life that thump us off the base.
The main mental barriers are :
- Chasing the magic bullets(that ridiculous enchantment slugs that lure you)
- Fear of Failure.
Even the most successful people have fear…but unlike most people, they adopt specific mindsets that help them avert that fear.
Fear of failure happens when we live in the future rather than the present.
Now I am not going to talk about thousands of vague habits you should follow to be successful.
BUT instead, I am going to tell you few most realistic tips to apply in your life.
These are some of the proven ways or we can say common habits of successful persons.
Seven Habits Of Highly Effective People
DON’T WORK HARD, WORK SMART
Now you must be thinking what absurd thing am I talking about. But yes, it’s a fact. A person working hard can be doing the work dedicatedly without knowing the right direction. He may or may not be getting positive results in his work.
But working smart can prove to be more effective and efficient in a way that it will save lots of your time and money. It is always recommended to find the right direction for your work before doing it else you may result in wasting your precious time.
Set a smart goal, not those vague ones. Set goals which are attainable and relevant. Small steps will lead you to climb the whole ladder.
BUILD A GROWTH MINDSET
Never have a fixed mindset. People with a fixed mindset believe that success is the result of born talent or we can say God gift. They quit when things do not come easily because they believe that they lack the inborn skill needed to excel. DON’T HAVE THIS MINDSET.
GROWTH mindset focuses on learning and achieving through continuous efforts. These people are more likely to reach the pinnacle in life.
- Always believe that your efforts matter.
- Learn new skills and view failures as a learning experience.
MENTAL STRENGTH AND EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE
Emotionally intelligent people are able to understand not only their own emotions but those of others as well. Listen to others carefully and understand them.
Individuals who have this psychological quality consider difficulties to be openings. They likewise feel that they have power over their own predetermination, are sure about their capacities to succeed, and are focused on completing what they begin.
FIND A MENTOR
Not an easy task to do. But still, you have to Find the right person.
In spite of the fact that the incredible assortment of decisions may appear to be great — all things considered, you have more to browse — it can really upset your capacity to settle on a choice.
To beat this “oddity of the decision,” you basically need to discover somebody who’s been there as of now: a coach. This will be an individual who’s going to help you through the extreme choices and guide you on the way to progress.
It can be someone as close to you already as a friend or family member — you can even find a mentor in someone you NEVER meet face-to-face through books or blogs you read.
BE PROACTIVE AND NEVER COMPLAIN
You have to take control and make things to happen rather than just adjusting to a situation or waiting for something to happen. Nothing will come by itself, you have to make every minute count. Don’t complain about your circumstances. Always remember circumstances don’t define you, but you are the one who defines circumstances. If that happens you will able to control your mind.
CREATE A WIN WIN
Always do something that is good for you as well as other people. This means that always ask yourself a question that does your work offers value to others. Always take care that for you to win other person do not have to lose. Sharing an example I read somewhere:
A shopkeeper offers a small kid a choice of taking either a Rs 10 note or a Rs 100 note daily. The kid comes in and always takes the Rs 10 note.
It’s a win situation for the shopkeeper who feels happy thinking that kid is such a fool who doesn’t take the Rs 100 note even after being offered.
It’s a win situation for the kid too who knows the day he takes the Rs 100 note, this game of offering money would be over!
Don’t procrastinate your work, your exercise regime, your nutrition, your reading habit, do it now or it will be never. Don’t give the excuse that it takes time. It’s worth more than going to doctors at an early age, spending your time and hefty amounts of money. So sharpen yourself from the body and your mind by following some of these in your routine.
If you develop these habits over the years you can help yourself find success in schools, colleges, business, jobs, or relationships.
Success is not an overnight journey, it’s about taking consistent actions, experimenting with different options and seeing the results.
