Success is something that everyone can have. All it takes is the willingness to attain it. Success is not easy and will not come overnight. But with consistent and committed action you can have it.
Success has different meanings for different people. For most, success is becoming wealthy financially and for others, success can mean getting a 4.0 on their next report card. It varies among people. Here are 3 simple but effective secrets that will get you to whatever your idea of success is.
- Fail Faster
“The difference between average people and achieving people is their perception of and response to failure.” – John C. Maxwell
“Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently” – Henry Ford
Failure is a fundamental piece to the puzzle of success. Look at failure as the stairs leading up to success. You have to find the lesson in each failure and use that lesson to build another stair. Don’t make the same mistakes twice and you will always be growing and get closer and closer to success.
2. Go Get It
“Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.” – Dale Carnegie
“An idea not coupled with action will never get any bigger than the brain cell it occupied.” – Arnold Glasow
Success is not going to come to you, you have to get up and go get it. You can think about success all you want, but until you go and take action towards success, nothing will change. Stop expecting things to change in your life when you are doing the same things every day.
3. Consistency and Persistence
“Success isn’t always about greatness. It’s about consistency. Consistent hard work leads to success. Greatness will come.” – Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson
“It’s not what we do once in a while that shapes our lives. It’s what we do consistently.” – Tony Robbins
Are you persistent? Do you take constant action towards your goals no matter what obstacles get in your way? Understand that success will not come to you overnight. Success is a continuous journey that requires your consistent effort. You can have, do, or be whatever you want. But you have to go at it with persistence and never forget why you started. If your why is strong enough, nothing will stop you. Find a powerful why and nothing will stop you from achieving your goals.
