How To Be Successful

Hey guys,

So I’ve decided to write a series on Becoming successful in your own rights. For some reason I have this niggling feeling within me to write about this and as the days and weeks/months go by its becoming more intense. So I guess that’s a sign that I should do it. I’m not sure how often I will post the entries but just bare with me as it’s honestly Real Practical Gold from a real person who didn’t have a fairy-tale life and literally bumped, scraped and crawled her way through life.

Now- Writing this Series does mean that I will have to talk about my own strengths and successes….But! This also means I have to talk about my failures and this will give you a greater understanding of how to harness bad situations and turn it into good:

So for today I’m going to begin with something that holds a tremendous amount of value to me:

What does it mean to be successful?

Success is Defined as:

“The accomplishment of an aim or purpose”

Please read that again….And slowly….

What this means is, wealth, riches and power does not necessarily equate to success. Yes, it’s an achievement that should not be knocked but I guarantee that if you asked a successful person what success meant to them they’d tell you…

They feel more successful achieving the goals and overcoming the difficulties on the journey then the financial gain. Wealth is the bonus.

Understanding the journey and the power you possess to achieve is what draws success towards you.

If you understand your Aim or the purpose of what you are trying to achieve: You will achieve it. But I can tell you for free: If your aim is to become stinking rich- The chances are higher that you will fail…… The graveyard is the richest place in the world, full of ideas, dreams, memories that never made it beyond ones mind.

If you love what you do….you will do it well.

No matter what you do in this world, you are successful if you are living your dreams, you are successful if you have achieved something meaningful to you. That doesn’t always mean the work is done though: Sometimes success needs to be maintained………..

Stay tuned for the next post

    I think problems arise when we start comparing our own “success” with others’. It’s good to have goals and aims but so much of “success” is tied up with owning things these days. Maybe we need to stop measuring success and start feeling it?
