Know What You Want
To know what you want, also means you know where you are, what you have, and were you are going.
Get A Mentor
A mentor is someone who has been or is already were you want to go. Learn from them every detail and in detail as told and expand beyond your mentor. A mentor wants to be succeeded; while a teacher wants to be followed. A mentor always wants you to know how to think for yourself; while a teacher wants to think for you. Teacher comes from following class room instructions, while mentor comes from following mental principles.
Long Fellow wrote; “A single conversation across the table with a wise person is better than a ten year study of books” remember to choose your mentors wisely. “Your mentors in life are important, so choose them wisely” said Robert kiyosaki author of the famous financial book Rich Dad Poor Dad.
Learn from Other People’s Mistakes
Success road is hard knocks following if you want it to learn by yourself, but soft knocks if you learn with others. Life also is so hard and unexciting to learn all the mistakes by yourself and learn from them; but life is soft and exciting by learning from other people’s mistakes. Learning from other people’s mistakes is a great short cut to success. Success is hard to achieve to make all the mistakes needed by yourself and learn from them; but easier to learn from other people’s mistakes and succeed success faster.
Set A Goal To How You Are Going To Reach Your Success Target
It’s through goal setting were you prepare your tools, resources or sources for success; for example ideas from your mentor is one of the tools, plans, strategies you will use and add up yours to hint your success target.
Make Up Your Mind To Reach Your Success Target No Matter The Odds
Willing to sacrifice all your gut to reach your success target is half way achieved success. A prepared mind is a half way achieved success. All battle, all success is won spiritually and mentally first. Remember that sacrifice does not mean losing something, sacrifice means giving up something on a lower level to get something on the higher level.
Take Action and Persevere Till Target Is Reached
Take action with a perseverance attitude, simply because to achieve success does not happen often as expected. Problems, losses, failures will happen, but with a persistent attitude that you will reach your success target no matter the odds is possible.
If you can’t handle failure, disappointments along the journey of your success then you won’t reach your success target. Your action with perseverance to achieve it is the evidence of your faith in your success idea; and Thomas H. Huxley put it this way “The great end of life is not knowledge but action”. In conclusion remember that;
“Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and Determination alone are omnipotent” – Calvin Coolidge , 30th Us President
