Do you desire to wake up daily with a positive state of mind aligned towards achieving your goals? Let’s explore how successful people are using three simple keys to success in life tricks to transform their lives forever. We all know that there is no secret to immortality, but there are critical elements great people use to become successful. Modern man has lost control over the influence of his surroundings, experiences, and reality. Our focus has been diluted by unnecessary actions and we have lost touch and forgotten our goals. For success to materialize, focus and objectivity must be parallel to each other.
We all want to lead successful lives, right? It doesn’t matter how old you are or what you stage of life you are in, we have an innate desire to be ‘successful’. Many of us don’t even know that means, other than a vague sense of positivity when we achieve it. In this post, we’re going to try and change that. You see, all of the best and brightest people who have ever walked the earth had one major thing in common: the knew what success looked like for them. Whether it was a mansion in Beverly Hills, a passion for your work, or a hunger to think big and put your plans into action, they all know what they want and where they are going.
Dreaming about dreams is easy. Actually following those dreams and bringing them into reality is tough. Especially if we are lacking the confidence to do so. I think the majority of people agree on these points. It took me a long time to realise no one was going to come and rescue my dreams from my mind. If anything was going to happen, I’d have to pluck them out myself and stand up to all of my fears.
I think we can all agree that if someone walked up to us right now and asked us what we want out of life we will all say just one thing: I want to be happy. Even if we say something different, like I want a new car, or a new job, or I want my children to be safe, what we are really saying is “I want this emotion (desire, frustration, fear etc) to be released so I can return to being happy”. It’s odd how that works, but it’s true.
Growing mentally, emotionally and spiritually is something we all like to do, whether we realize it or not. Life is always trying to expand and express itself and us, as an extension of that life, are no different. It is no coincidence that most people feel happiest when they are in a state of love or creative expression. On the flip side, life is darkest and has the least power when it has no room to expand. When we corner ourselves with our own rigid thoughts, emotions and belief systems, we leave no room for self growth. The world grows dim. We experience pain and emotional trauma because we have plugged the natural flow of life.
We all have our own ideas about what success means to us. To some, it means money. To others? Freedom and creative expression. We all agree, however, that certain types of men have just ‘got it’. You know who we are talking about. The men who flit in and out of our lives – friends, perhaps, or co-workers, maybe even just an influential celebrity – who just exude something powerful that we can’t quite explain.
It doesn’t matter which way you look at it - from the perspective of a scientist, a religionist, or a law of attraction believer - our thoughts shape a huge portion of our lives and our life experience. I think we can all agree that what we think about, at the deepest part of our being, is what comes about, in a very real way. Look back in hindsight and we see this is always the way. Being able to think and use the mechanism of logic is a huge privilege. It is what has enabled us to rise above other forms of life and live structured, safe lives, away from primal dangers such as being eaten or dying from basic illnesses.
I think we’d all agree that the fear of failure is perhaps the most pervasive, corrosive force in existence today, especially when it comes to our success as individuals. Has there been a time in your life when fear held you back from following your dream? Have you felt that tightening in your chest and stomach and decided it probably isn’t worth is after all? Be honest – we all have at some time. And it hurts. It really hurts. The fear of failing can freeze us on the spot, no matter how much we want something. It can feel like a great, impassable barrier somewhere within us impossible for us to climb. One that says ‘this way is closed’. Several studies have already made the link between the fear of failure and a lack of motivation.
Believing in yourself is truly one of the most difficult daily tasks anyone can do. Wonder why? It is because there is no definitive answer as to how. Everyone has days where they feel down, no luck, and feel like a failure. However, overcoming these obstacles is the best way to gain confidence and realize your true value, because you are worth so much.
