- Find your spark
A few times in life you will find your spark. It could be the love interest you meet at a conference party. It could be the startup that you work late into the night for. It could be that best friend of yours that inspires you to start a motivational website. When you find that spark, hold on to it. Nurture it. It will propel you to new heights and help you grow in ways you can’t even imagine.
2. Set S.M.A.R.T. goals.
What is success? Most people would probably define success as achieving a goal. But you can never be successful if you set unachievable goals. Many goals are unrealistic or too nebulous for follow-through.
Instead, try setting S.M.A.R.T. goals. S.M.A.R.T. is an acronym which stands for Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, Timely. The acronym pretty much says it all. These are goals which are concrete, narrowly defined, and which you can measure your progress towards.
3. Take action and don’t procrastinate
Dreaming and thinking, without execution, will not take you anywhere. Successful people have mastered the habit of taking action. Sometimes they do so boldly- even before they feel fully ready or emotionally prepared.
4. Success is a state of mind
It all starts in the mind and if you want to be successful, you have to feel it and act like it already happened. A good way to understand this is to think of those poor people who win the lottery and who, because of their scarcity mindset end up losing most of that money in a very short period of time. Why is that? Well, they do have the money but not the mindset…
5 . Be present in all that you do
Live in the present moment, enjoy life, stay focused and engaged, appreciate what you have while at the same time keeping an image in your heart and your mind of where you want to go. Love yourself and love your life but never forget what you want and what are you doing for that !!!
