STEPS TO SUCCESS
If you must fail, fail forward!
This is the best time to make the decision to succeed no matter how many times you’ve failed in the past. At the beginning of each year, people make New Year resolutions, but how many are ready to get out of their comfort zones and make the impossible possible?
Below are some steps to follow to make the most of your life this year:
Set goals and have a workable plan-
“A goal without a plan is just a wish”
Discover what you are good at. Have a plan on how to achieve your goal. Focus your energy on it and excel at doing it. Don’t waste your precious time and resources chasing shadows.
Don’t be imprisoned by your past failures-
“The fastest way to succeed is to double your failure rate.” ~ Thomas Watson Sr.
Learn from your mistakes, forget the ugly details and embrace the future with hope. It’s time to set yourself free from that paralyzing fear of the past and dare to try again. Winning starts from attempting to begin again!
If you are the most intelligent or smartest in your team or group, then your team or group is too small. Choose friends or associates that are smarter than you, and will challenge you to stretch your vision to the next level. Don’t follow anyone that’s going nowhere.
Connect with mentors and like-minded people that will develop your talent and add value to your life and work. Learn new skills and become more productive and richer.
Replace the negative thoughts in your mind with positive thoughts. This replaces stress with self-esteem, and you eventually become what you think about.
Relinquish power sometimes.
‘One tree cannot make a forest’
Stop being a control freak! Learn to rely and learn from people around you. You need others to succeed.
