While sitting in my backyard enjoying the cold breeze suddenly a thought came into my mind. What it takes for a person to be a successful?
Why not find out what stops a person from becoming successful? And voila you guessed it right! I jumped onto my laptop and started digging into the reasons that hold us to get success and how we can overcome those.
So first things first, ask yourself these sets of questions:
Are you too tired?
Don’t have enough money?
Don’t have enough time?
Don’t have enough energy?
Or is this stopping you “YOU”
These questions will make you want to look into yourself and help you analyze yourself better. Write down what are the problems you are facing. Don’t become a rock and sit in one place. Start looking for solutions.
You don’t have to ask anyone about yourself. Nobody can tell you what’s good and what’s bad in you. You have to see this within yourself. You are your own judge of character. You have to see yourself what improvements you require and what are your strengths and weakness.
Remember nobody gives you hand to come to the top you have to do it on your own. Nobody will help you get the success you have to help yourself.
Following are some key factors towards a successful life that you would want to consider.
Don’t Make Excuses:
We human beings from birth till death face different kinds of problems, challenges, and bad experiences. We all do!!
These difficult times make us wise and strong. Every time we face problems we learn something. Like fake friends, heartbreaks, financially unstable, lost love and failing to achieve goals.
But the thing is, most of us instead of finding a solution we make these lessons a hurdle in our life.
We make excuses like I tried a lot but It didn’t work, I have no energy left to do work, My mind isn’t in the right state, I am feeling tired, I don’t have enough money, Nobody is helping me.
Believe me, making excuses won’t take you anywhere it’s completely useless. You have to make your life better, you have to start again, you have to work on your dreams, and you have to start now not tomorrow.
It was never promised that a man’s life will be free of problems. It never was and it never will be, so be wise and accept that and start doing something that will take you towards the path of a happy and successful life.
Believe in yourself, believe in your strengths, and believe that you are capable of doing almost anything and everything. If you are waiting around for someone to help you? You are just wasting your time. If you have ideas in your mind you have to start working on them by yourself because this is the only way you can truly experience your capabilities and become a successful person.
In an interview, Elon Musk told he didn’t lose hope he didn’t give up when at the end of 2008 his company Tesla face a crisis due to a Model three production failure. Crises were so severe he didn’t sleep much and do work straight 22 hrs to solve the issues because his company was dying. In these hard times, he didn’t lose hope and work harder to overcome problems, and finally, his hard work pays off and he achieve what he dreams about, he achieves the goals that he set.
Get out of your comfort zone:
Most of us are not willing to take risks. Most of us would rather sit and think on what-ifs but not on the ifs. We think about what if we fail at this. Instead, we should start thinking about if this becomes a success? If we don’t act soon it might be too late?
You have to get out of your comfort zone don’t think about people what people will say. If we focus on what people will say then we can’t go anywhere.
Most people say bad things on purpose because they are insecure about themselves that’s why they don’t want to see us as successful people.
If you are thinking to do something for years you should start doing it now. There is a possibility that you might fail at first, yes it might be not easy but when you start doing you will start learning in the whole process and you will start doing better because there is no such thing as a failure but only feedback and lessons through those failures.
We usually hear people say it’s too risky don’t do this, it’s impossible, stick to what you know. Don’t listen to them follow your dreams, believe in yourself because when you start believing in yourself amazing things start happening.
Stop feeling sorry for yourself:
You have to be a mature person and own your faults because everything that happened in your life is your fault, not others so stop the blame game.
If you don’t own your faults you will not succeed in life.
Yes, we do regret things that we did in our lives, you might get upset, you might be frustrated, you might be disappointed but you are still here right? So rather than sitting and feeling bad about it, go harder this time and get what’s yours.
Be a strong person and stop expecting too much from others. Start doing hard work because hard work always pays.
Stand for yourself. If you are scared of failure just brush it off and keep doing it anyway. Once you make up your mind and start doing it by yourself trust me you will do it very easily, yes maybe after few attempts you will succeed.
Achieve what you dream about:
If you are dreaming about something and not acting on them it’s delusion. Dreams won’t work without action.
You have to believe in your dreams and in your ideas. Choose to believe it’s possible, you have to believe that the harder you start thinking, it’s already happening.
Thomas Edison dreamt about the light bulb he believed that it’s possible he worked hard on his idea, in his dream and he invented the light bulb.
Elon Mask dreamt about electric cars he believed in his dream and took action. Now he is producing Tesla electric cars.
Jeff Bezos CEO and Owner of Amazon.com he had big dreams he worked hard on his dreams and created the world’s largest E-Commerce store Amazon. Now currently Jeff Bezos is the richest person alive on this Planet. He started his project from a small garage of his and now he will be the world’s first trillionaire.
