Much has been written about how one can achieve success. The vast majority of what is out there is very good. However, to be a success, in whatever you do, you have to start acting like you’re a success – now. I have yet to find a “success switch” that when flipped, one automatically is successful.
Despite what you might believe or have read, you can control the majority of your destiny. It all starts with making a choice; deciding what you want, and then taking the necessary steps to achieve your goal.
Before you go out and buy all the books and videos about success (and you should buy the right ones), start with these four simple but yet important actions to help you experience the essence of success and get you on the right path for the “journey”—
- Get up every morning, look yourself in the mirror and ask: What can I do better today that I didn’t do yesterday? Continue to raise the bar and set your expectations higher.
- Always do more than you are expected to do and then ask for more to do – don’t be afraid to demonstrate your competence.
- Nothing limits you except yourself. You can define your life. Quit making excuses and get on with it.
- Learn from the mistakes you make – and you will make them. Learning from your mistakes makes you better the next time.
