There are various reasons for success. Time, money, mind, all contribute to your success in life, in profession. What I share you hare are what I have learn this week and that I really think that could benefit you if you learn it as well.
1-Following up the vision
Cruel follow up of the vision and grand action makes one successful beyond the norm. I had a goal that I had to get to within this week and Monday morning I woke up and wanted to return to my old life. As much as I wanted to do something different for this week, I went back to the old life. By today, I had forgotten the plan until the small piece of paper reminded me.
I had subscribed to work out in a gym 5 weeks ago. At the time I wanted to continue exercising after I quit doing for few days. And today, I received the fifth week workout manual with my email and I even didn’t started the first work out yet.
I feel that the young age decides us with ego and false perception of time where we feel invincible and immortal. The reality is that time is flying and we are getting older. Success is equivalent to aggressive follow up of a plan we set.
After a rough meeting with a friend, I came back home to think that success is the ability to move on. Without forgiving oneself of any regrets, one cannot be successful. I noticed that the regret that he has is the regret that he had a decade before. We talked same topic then and now that has grown to be more real.
One reason why many smart people are less successful is their tendency to be perfect. Perfection is a given as well as a curse. The dream to create a perfect life creates disbelieve and unsure-ness of life itself. As a perfectionist myself, I learnt to believe the process, no matter what. I learnt that the progress is better than the result since the result could be anything. And the success of the result depends on how others see it. Worrying on every corner and to wish life to be perfect does not change nothing for most.
Instead, learn that we are not perfect and we can be better than that we were. That is what matters.
3-learn to see the big picture
Many young people join burger selling or waiting in café and they stay there. Many people don’t have a vision. They live for money.
Success is in the vision. What is the big picture. What is it you want to change in the world and what do you want to be known with?
If you don’t have something to die for, then you are not fit to live. Learn what is good for you and what you can contribute. Make a big picture of it and work to attain it. You will be successful.
