Discovering Your Road To Success – Part 1 Of 4
Success is a journey and finding your own road to success is important. Although we can follow other great leaders in the way they achieved, success could so easily be aligned with the “genie trapped in a bottle” scenario. To follow that thought, success could simply be finding a way to open that bottle, and then following a specific path. Of course, this path is filled with pitfalls and traps all along its route, so it’s a good idea to learn all you can and expand your vision as you move along.
For many people, achieving big success is like a “fairy-tale” and can prove to be elusive for them. In reality and far from the “fairy-tale”, success is not only possible, but it’s just around the corner. In fact, it sometimes already exists within us. How can this be? What I am referring to are skills you already have. Also there are friends and family who will help you, and don’t forget the things you’ve already achieved.
Your Path To Success Is A Road Of Hidden Treasure.
These hidden treasures are those skills you have, the support you get and the achievements you have already accomplished. Put all these things together, keeping that end goal in mind, you’re already on your journey.
Now, let’s look at a way to achieve daily progress to create that success, live a quality life, and help everyone around you in the process.
Write all of your goals down, keeping them in a place that you have access to them. This could be on a piece of paper in your pocket, on your mobile phone, in a notebook, in your diary or journal, or even on a screensaver on your computer. Wherever you put this information, be sure to have daily access to it.
Break all your major goals into smaller, more achievable steps. Never forget your ultimate goal. When you separate short-term goals from long-term goals, set out estimated time frames for each task. This will help you to measure and record your results. It’s not important to share this with anyone, but if they share the same goal, it may be a good idea. You will be in a very strong position if you have at least one close friend, spouse, or family who shares the same dream. It means you will be well supported on your journey.
Learn to focus on your goals every day. This is a major part of discovering your road to success.
Questions To Ask Yourself On Your Route To Success.
There are a few questions you should ask yourself as you venture along your success route:
Will your goals hurt anyone?
Will you have to “step on” anyone to get what you want?
If the answer to either of these questions is yes, look to redefine your goal or goals. It will be better if you can achieve all your goals without harming anyone in the process. If you don’t think it’s possible, change your goal or the process and move on. Achieving your goals should be morally sound and help others along the way.
This is very important. Just think on this – if your goal is to “flip burgers” for money, how long do you think you could remain passionate about it. I don’t know anyone who has a real passion for flipping burgers, do you? Don’t take this the wrong way. I know that some people are really good at it, but I have known a few people doing this who wish they were doing something that truly excited them.
Whatever you choose to do, it really should be something you love doing. Love the work you do first and the money will follow. There are so many who believe their success lies in learning an occupation, just because the money alone is so good, but they regret it in the end. When you have a purpose in life you have “self-worth.” Self-worth is a very valuable hidden treasure that lies in your road to success.
