Success isn't a matter of luck, it's not like some people are meant to succeed and others aren't. It's that some people decided to succeed and others decided to fail by choosing not to try at all. Remember, the greatest failure is not to try.
Below are some success principles that may help you to make your dreams a reality:
1- It’s a matter of wanting it bad enough:
If you want something, put in the effort, no matter what is your age, your upbringing or your lot in life, once you make a decision to pursue your dream, the universe conspires to make it happen.
2- Accept constructive criticism, but ignore naysayers:
Because no matter how much progress you make, there will always be people who insist that whatever you’re trying to do is impossible, so be OK with it!
3- It's about goals:
If you're bored with life, if you don't get up every morning with a burning desire to do things, you don't have enough goals. No matter how many goals you have achieved, you must set your sights on a higher one. Reach for the stars; and if you don't grab them then at least you'll be on top of the world!
4- Seek the company of those who bring out your best:
Always avoid negative people! For that it's better to be alone than to be with negative ones. Surround yourself with inspiration and let it lift you up. If you want to be the best, then you should follow the best and do better! I knew someone who made a success out of his passion, and that made me believe hard in my own passion, what I used to think is a waste of time, now I'm quite sure that this is what I want to spend my life doing, even if i'm not going to get credit any soon.
5- Understand that failure is a part of success:
Failure isn’t a choice, but learning is. No matter how tough time gets, no matter what life is going to throw your way, never let it break you down, rather let it strengthen you.
6- Make time count:
With every moment, you’re creating your destiny, make sure you don’t let it slip by without paying attention. What is going to make the difference is the little extra effort you'll make, even if you're not getting any credit for it, even if it's passing by unnoticed, it will pay off some day. 7- Give up excuses: Often when we try something new, we feel afraid and uncomfortable, and we hold ourselves from doing it giving the excuse of we didn't feel much like it, which is nothing but lies. Sometimes you won't know how ready you are or how capable you are until you do it.
8- Choose the extraordinary:
Dream your life, then live your dreams, will to not be good, but phenomenal. The best life is the life you spend doing the things you love.
9- Research the people who did it and learn from them.
10- Give up that job that you don’t like:
Instead figure out what you really want to do in this life and do it, because if you choose a job you love, you will never have to work a day in your life.
11- Visualize the success:
Go to the future and see who you want to become, then come back to the present and make it happen, set goals and take actions.
12- Never get satisfied:
Seek out better!
13- Don’t give up:
Keep practicing, and it’s going to get easier. Just know that you can’t get there if you give up.
Success isn't something given, it's something earned. So go out there, work hard, and make your dreams come true!
