The Four Secrets to Achieving Success
Everyone wants to be successful. Focus generally tends to be towards career success. However, personal or life success is also important.
Success is about achieving goals. After all, if you don’t have a goal then how can you be successful?
So what are the four secrets that can help you be successful?
Set Goals for Success
It is vital that you set goals for your personal and professional lives. These will provide a target for you to aim for. Once you’ve listed your goals, then write down the steps you are going to take to achieve them.
Add who or what can help you to your list. Find an accountability partner, mentor or coach who can help and support you. There are some terrific mentors in the online world. I can definitely help you with that!
Remember That Your Personal and Professional Lives Are Inter-dependent
You may think that your career goals are totally separate from your personal goals. However, they are inter-dependent. Your career relies on your well-being, impacts on your family and relationships, your health and happiness.
Your happiness, relationships, and health are affected by your career. If you’re not happy at work or doing a job you love then it will have an impact on your emotional and physical well-being, as well as affecting other areas of your personal life.
To be successful in one area you need to create success in the other. Sounds a bit strange but let’s take it one step further.
Find Your Passion and Purpose
If your personal and professional lives are inter-dependent, then to be successful in them you will need to discover your passion and purpose. By discovering these you will create the determination to succeed.
This will enhance your creativity, spark inspiration and allow you to harness the power of flow in your activities.
Ask yourself what you really want to do with your life. What do you want your legacy to be?
Where do you want to be 5 or 10 years down the road?
What exactly is making you happy?
Don’t Focus on the Money
While many people consider amassing wealth to be a sign of success, that should not be your end goal or sole success indicator.
Instead focus on your emotions, lifestyle, and well-being. What will your life look and feel like when you have successfully achieved your goals? How will your family and friends feel?
Why not create a vision board with words, quotes, and pictures showing your life as a success?
When thinking about your professional success, consider how you will know you’ve succeeded. What will your position be?
How will you be making an impact in your company and in the wider community?
What will your work day look like?
Think about work/life balance and the effect on your family and relationships with friends. How will your new role or business affect your life, health, and happiness?
While success can mean different things to different people, one thing all definitions have in common is that success is measured by achieving goals that make you feel positive emotions, for example, happiness and achievement.
You will find the greatest success comes when you use your passions to create your goals in life and work.
