Learning How To Be Successful Is Easier Than You Think
Is being successful difficult?
It can be, if you want it to be. Many of us believe that to be a successful person, you have to be born with the X factor, or be in the right place at the right time. In some respects, there is truth to this. However, a large aspect of whether you achieve success or not is down to your own understanding of what it means to be successful.
In this article I will talk about how to be successful though understanding.
Getting what you need to be successful
If you want to become a pig farmer, then you must acquire some pigs.
If you want to become an artist, then you must acquire the tools to paint.
If you want to become successful, then you must…..??
What you don’t know, is that you are already successful.
And here’s why:
What ever it is that you do on a regular basis is what you are successful at – The reason for this is that success is a direction.
I want you to process the above statement for a second, because it profoundly effects the the way you live.
You see – whatever you dedicate your time to is where the success happens.
Your actions move you toward an outcome, whether desired or not. It is your behavior that ultimately allows you to dictate your success.
Taken to the extreme, there is only one crucial difference between a millionaire and a drug addict – And that is that one understands that his actions make or break him, while the other doesn’t.
The drug addict may know intellectually that the actions he takes can have a negative affect on his life, but he disregards the simplicity of it. In fact, most of us do the same. We believe that there is a ‘magic bullet’ or ‘key to success’, when in reality we already have what we need. All thats missing, is the understanding.
People who truly understand success like the millionaire, don’t waste time. They act towards whatever it is that will improve their life, and they do it every day. Right this second.
They hold this perspective in their minds as much as they can, because they know that this is the secret to achieving life long dreams.
Success is binary in nature – and so is our thinking:
- Successful people think about what they need, and go after it.
- Unsuccessful people merely think about what they need!
While everyones’ idea of success is different… the perspective needed to achieve is the same. Which of the above will you align yourself with?
