Identifying Your Passion
This simply means finding what you love to do and doing it. Nothing will please you more in life than doing what you love doing. Moreover, it will not feel like work if it’s something you are passionate about.
“You know you are on the road to success if you would do your job and not be paid for it” – Oprah Winfrey
Set your goal so high that even if you don’t achieve it, you at least fall short. What could be more pleasing than achieving something which is better than nothing?
“The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark.” – Michelangelo Buonarotti, Great Renaissance Artist
Balancing Your Life
If we can all learn to influence the ineradicable conflict between work in life and in business, we can all become successful. This is where the residence of balance in our wholistic lives lie.
“There is an immutable conflict at work in life and in business, a constant battle between peace and chaos. Neither can be mastered, but both can be influenced. How you go about that is the key to success.” – Phil Knight – CEO of Nike Inc.
Recognizing Failure as a Learning Curve
Thomas Edison tested more than 3,000 designs for bulbs between 1878 and 1880. Three thousand is a big number which many of us wouldn’t even think of reaching. You and I would have probably given up before we even tested ten bulbs. We would have failed before we even started.
“Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently.” – Henry Ford – Founder of Ford Motors
Theories and practical applications of Science have proven time and again that for every action, there is an equal but opposite reaction. In simple terms, NOTHING happens from doing NOTHING. The results we receive from our daily actions are in perfect proportion with how we act.
“It had long since come to my attention that people of accomplishment rarely sat back and let things happen to them. They went out and happened to things.” – Leonardo da Vinci, Renaissance Genius
Have an Unwavering DESIRE to Succeed
Desire backed by FAITH knows no such word as “impossible”. Make a sound decision to do whatever it takes to succeed and amount to something. Stick to your decision, win and live by it.
“I made a resolve then that I was going to amount to something if I could. And no hours, nor amount of labor, nor amount of money would deter me from giving the best that there was in me. And I have done that ever since, and I win by it. I know.” – Colonel Sanders, Founder of KFC
Believing in Your Dream and in Yourself
“If you can dream it, you can do it.” – Walter Disney, Founder of Walt Disney Company
Keep a Grateful Mental Attitude
Be grateful for what you already have. Gratitude will unify your mind with the mind of God, The Almighty, The Supreme Intelligence or whoever you prefer to call Him.
“The grateful outreaching of your mind in thankful praise to the Supreme is a liberation or expenditure of force; it cannot fail to reach that to which it is addressed, and the reaction is an instantaneous movement towards you.” – Wallace Wattles
Having faith signifies that you trust that whatever you seek is already yours. FAITH is the ultimate key to accumulation of riches, wealth and achieving success.
