When you ask someone what is Success they will give you different answers from achieving your goals all the way to living a good and happy life. I would like to use the definition that was given by the late Dr. Earl Nightingale which is: ” The progressive realization of a worthy ideal/goal”.
So as you go through the article I want you to keep that definition in mind as we discuss Success.
Creating your path to success depends on walking on a firm foundation. Knowing WHAT you want is only the beginning. Visualizing what you want and repeating affirmations makes your intentions stronger.
Yet, this is not enough. So what IS the secret to realizing your goals? Let’s walk the path together. As we walk the path step by step, I encourage you to write the answers to these questions:
Success Step 1: Where are you now? What are your strengths, resources, and areas of improvement?
Success Step 2: What do you want to achieve? What is important to you? Money? Relationships? Having fun? Creating a vibrant body? …Use your imagination to explore. List everything you want without editing.
Success Step 3: What do you REALLY want? What lights you up and gets you excited? What is your heart’s desire?
Notice what is stopping you from having what you want now.
This is the most powerful question to answer because it is how you sabotage yourself from success. By recognizing the challenges, obstacles or risks and addressing them in your Action Plan, you manage your productive tension to focus on your desired outcome.
What’s Stopping You?
Feelings of unworthiness?
Self-sabotaging mind talk?
Do you dress for success?
How is your love life? Do you regularly express your love to the significant relationships in your life?
Release negative people from your life
Release self pity – Focus on gratitude instead. Make list of what is good in your life.
Attitude – are you usually upbeat?
Health: attitude, energy, mental clarity, and overall well-being are all linked to good health. Health is supported by
Exercise: Pleasurable forms can include weight lifting, dance, belly dance, Tango, golf, tennis, jogging, walking, cycling, yoga, and many other forms.
Diet: Well balanced diet is best. Studies have shown that excessive protein creates health risks/issues.
Medical exams: Regular checkups help you know where you stand and how to get back on track if necessary.
Spiritual Life: Your spiritual life builds your foundation.
Complacency or “Golden Handcuffs” – When we get too comfortable, we can set ourselves up to fail. If you are at the top, keep your edge and passion by giving yourself new challenges.
Do you have the passion to win or achieve a goal?
