Being successful always is possible provided we take the right way forward.
Everyone wants to be happy and successful in life. There is no one in the world who does not aspire for success.
What is a Success?
Success is an effect caused by performing the perfect action. There is a consequence to everything. If one does good, one gets good. If one does not so good, one gets not so good results. So to get to success there is only one way and that way is doing the right thing.
Doing the right thing requires the virtue of patience, persistence and a fair share of perspiration.
“Patience persistence and perspiration make an unbeatable combination for success.”
― Napoleon Hill
Recipe for Success – The Right Way Forward
When we make a dish, we first carefully understand the ingredients required to make the dish. Then we pay attention to the proportion of those ingredients that are needed to be added to the dish. Then we understand the steps for adding those ingredients.
Once the process is understood and if you follow the process correctly, then you could create the dish. A tasty meal which can be enjoyed by everyone. In the same way, we can create success in our lives with the right ingredients of:
- Focusing our minds on the right tasks.
- Being consistent with efforts to reach our goal and
- Cultivate the ability to work together as a team.
Focused work is when one is not worrying about the past, or feeling anxious about the future.
If you can focus the mind in being present and do the tasks with a calm mind, then you can easily accomplish the task at hand. Also not getting carried away with excitement during the task can help us retain energy and channelize it in the right direction.
“Get the fundamentals down and the level of everything you do will rise.”
― Michael Jordan
Being Successful Always by Being Consistent Always
Being consistent with our efforts lends power to our goals. Just like wind blowing in one direction creates electricity. Or water flowing in one direction creates electricity. In the same way, if your efforts are directed in one direction, every single day, you are going to reach your goal successfully. You are going to produce amazing results for yourself. The key is to repeat the right actions regularly.
“Success is neither magical nor mysterious. Success is the natural consequence of consistently applying basic fundamentals.”
― Jim John
‘We’ is More Powerful than ‘I’
Cultivate the ability to work together. ‘We’ is more powerful than ‘I’.
The ability of coming together and building something together is the perfect environment for success. No one can claim that they did it by themselves. It’s a delusion to believe that only one person can be responsible for one’s success. There are so many people who come into our lives to help us.
When we acknowledge the people who help us in our journey to success. When we are willing to work together as a team. We can build things that live forever.
Even beyond our lifetime. This is how nations were built. This is how great leaders achieved success.
Success is Relative
What success is for one may not be for the other. Success is a relative term. We all define success differently. It has different meanings for each one of us.
What does success mean to you? What’s the right way forward for you?
