Success is intentional. It is deliberate. It does not come as an accident. It is a choice. As much as Cristiano Ronaldo claims to have accumulated his whole wealth to his son who was born in riches, it doesn’t mean that the future of his son is an accident. He worked for it and she still is. No wonder he doesn’t even know the total number of cars he possess. Success is a personal development process. It is not what you get or earn but who you become.

You must Create the person you want to become through action and self-education. Sitting around, dreaming and wishing for success will not bring about change into your life. You have got to make a determined effort to grow at individual level.

1. Believe

The longest journey is the journey inward. This journey starts from believing in yourself. Take a leap of faith and begin this wonderful New Year by believing in your abilities and believe that there is a living source just waiting to be asked to help you make your dream come true. Have faith in your abilities. It is crystal clear that without a humble and reasonable confidence in your own power, you cannot be successful or happy. Do not let fear or insecurity stop you from trying new things. Be sure of what you want and be sure about yourself. You may say that so and so has attitude- maybe they do, but I think that if you have to believe in yourself when no one else does- that makes a winner right there.

2. Plan

Our results are only as good as our plan. If you look at most successful people, you will realize they have one thing in common- Planning, you will almost discover that there is always a plan behind their success- they know what they want, and they work out a plan that will get them where they want to be. Check this Out.

3. Learn

Many people want to improve their lives but they don’t take action and learn the right things that will take their life to a whole new level. If you are willing to learn, no one can help you, if you are determined to learn, no one will ever stop you. If you learn, you will always keep your mind young and thus if you are not learning, then you are probably not reaching your potential.

4. Decide

If you believe in your abilities and create a workable plan but fail to make a decision to be successful, success will never come. Success comes to those who are success conscious. Everything starts at the point when you are unsatisfied with your job, salary, position, life, financial status and want to do something to change. Let no feeling of discouragement prey upon you and in the end you are sure to succeed. Take the decision to succeed and focus on success.

5. Prepare

By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail. Making a decision to work on your dreams is not final. Kit is an overview of what you should be prepared to do. If you carry out an analysis on questions asked or googled, almost everyone is asking that one secret behind success. There is no secret at all. Success is where preparation and opportunity meet. It is a result of preparation, handwork and learning from failure. No one starts a war he/ she hasn’t prepared for. if you take a goal as a war to win, you will have all reason to prepare for it and use all strategies you know to win.

6. Begin

Why do people procrastinate even when they are not lazy? It could be due to lack of motivation, perfectionism, “I will do it later”, “I am busy”, and so forth. Arthur Godfrey said, “Even if you’re on the right truck, you will still be run over if you just sit there. Begin doing what you want to do now. We are not living in eternity. There is so many tomorrows and if you put off everything till you’re sure of it, you will never get anything done.
It is impossible to achieve any degree of success if you keep on procrastinating.

Denis Waitley says: Procrastination is the fear of success. People procrastinate because they are afraid of the success that they know will result if they move ahead now. Because success is heavy, it carries a responsibility with it, it much easier to procrastinate and live on the “someday I’ll” philosophy.

Get this from me, procrastinating is a trap. Waiting is a trap.

7. Work.

You cannot get much done in life if you only work on the days you feel good. When most people get started to work on their dreams, they have courage, the zeal and the determination that one requires to be successful but after someday, they start to forget about what they are doing without remembering that “one who slack at his work is a brother to one who destroys.” Life is a journey that must be travelled no matter how bad the roads are. It is a never ending journey. If you focus on your destination, you will end up wishing for it. If you focus on the journey toward your destination, you will always have a reason to move ahead.

8. Invest

In whichever work we do, we are always investing- our efforts, time, money, thoughts, and any other applicable resource available. Among this investments, investing in yourself is the best investment you will ever make. It will not only improve your life but also the lives of all those around you. For every time we push personal development aside, we invite personal struggles in our lives. In the filed you are in, if you want to get more, you must be more.
No investment in made without understanding the risks available. You will face make circumstances that will make want to quit but here is all you need to do. Push Until Something Happens.
