Who doesn't want to succeed in life? We all do I presume. But the truth is that not all of us are as successful as we would in every area of our life. Success is after all - accomplishment of a goal. But do we have goal in every area of our lives? The answer is answer is yes and no. Yes because in most ares of our lives we are conscious to set goal and follow it through. And in other are areas we leave things to chance. The outcome is that we are either successful or merely surviving. Is that true to your life? Well, for me, this is the picture in some areas of my life. You have the power to change your story -- from the WAY IT IS to WHAT YOU WANT IT TO BE. The fact the you know what it is and what you what it to be is the beginning of the story. However, this knowledge is not enough.You need to understand that knowledge is power only when you have the ability to use it to add value to your life and the life of those around you. This article is to highlight 3 things you need to know in your journey for personal success. Personal success starts from inside out. You need to be successful in the way you think and also in the way you do things so that you can benefit from the riches of growing as a person. Personal success is who you become in the pursuit of your goal. It could be the result of changed values (intangible) you had learned in your journey towards the pursuit of your goals or it could be tangible outcome like material things. Either way it is the experience you have as a result of whop you've become. There are 3 things you need to know as you progress in your success journey.
1. Raise your standard
You need to raise your standard in terms of who you want to become. This essentially is you giving yourself permission to change your ideals by way of the way you think. Who you are determines what you do. This aspect is important because it challenges as to what you would allow in your life. It focuses omn your belief and purpose. And therefore gives you the reason to forge ahead.
2. Change you limiting belief
Your belief determines the decisions that you take in your life. The things you do or don't do.; in fact, your decision making mechanisms and therefore what you do or don't do focuses on your belief systems. For you to make progress in your personal success journey, you need to remove the limiting beliefs that hod you back. These are around your thought - consideration, your feelings - fear of different types as well as attitudinal tendencies and roadblocks on the environmental level. You need to challenge them and move ahead.
3. Change your strategy
You need to develop ways of doing things and improve on them through modelling the experts in your field. This helps you to master the nuts and bolts of the way the experts perform. It leverages the outcome you achieve as well as the time you invest in learning the success strategies afresh. You need to know that both the path to failure and excellence is a strategy. And it is possible to adopt a skill and become excellent and competent in the exercise of it.
I'll leave you with these closing words: "
"We are what we repeatedly do; excellence is not an act but habit.
