Everybody wants success, but it is difficult to get it all the time and at everything. Still there are some rules, if followed, one can proceed towards success. Try them, they are not difficult, just you have to pay attention.
It doesn't matter whether you are trying to succeed at work, in your relationship or with your wealth the principles are the same. The following tips will help you in succeeding in your endeavors.
1. Know what you want
You must have the desire to succeed. This means you need to know what you want in life and be able to identify the actions that you need to take to achieve your goals. Goals provide a guide to your destination in life, follow them, others determine where you'll end up.
[It is similar to Geetaa's teaching - "Do your work (Dharm) and leave the result on Me."]
2. Believe in yourself
To be successful you need to have a positive outlook and believe that what you are doing is right and you can fight for it. Then have faith in yourself that you can achieve your goals. When you feel good about yourself, you react more confidently to life's challenges. If you believe in yourself and push yourself through shyness and self-doubt you will succeed more far than you will fail. Believe and you will achieve.
3. Never give up
Once you have believed in your goal, persist it up to the completion. persistence is the number one thing for being successful. It's easy for people to become disheartened when they are criticised or encounter a hurdle while trying to achieve their goals, but to be a true success you must persist through the criticism, rejection, pressure and failure. A fighting spirit will make you succeed.
4. Never stop learning
Successful people never stop learning. They learn from their mistakes, new experiences and other people. Whatever you are doing, gain full knowledge in that subject. Learning at every step and opportunity increases your knowledge whether old or new areas and keeps you ahead in your field. Read books, acquire new skills and seek additional training and it will definitely set you apart from the rest and make you more confident than others.
5. Do what you love
To do something well you must at least like it, but even if you don't like it, either develop a liking for it or leave it; because doing any work without being interested in it does not pay you. But liking it helps to love it. Being passionate about the things you spend your time on is energising and motivates you to succeed. Do what you love, and success will come.
6. Avoid conditional happiness
Too many of us believe that if some problem resolved itself we would finally be happy. But striving for happiness by just sitting back and finding happiness at this particular point in your life is no way to live. Successful people avoid delayed gratification and don't sit around waiting for problems to resolve. Successful people find happiness at every instance, rather than just when they think things are going right for them.
