I’ve never met anyone who didn’t have success on their mind at some point in the past or who doesn’t have it on their mind right now. I acknowledge that we all have unique and different perspectives on what success means to us, but success is still something that we strive for. According to my google search, progress means “forward or onward movement towards a destination.”
I remember the first time I was asked about what I needed to do in order to reach adulthood. My response was simple: develop your competitive skills. And throughout the remainder of my childhood, adolescence, and young adulthood, I persistently yearned for that. However, as I reflect on those moments in the context of my adult and professional life, I find that the method by which the conversation about achievement came to an end there resonates.
“Don’t be afraid to give up the good to go for the great.”– John D. Rockefeller
Therefore, I accept that success can be broken down into three questions, each of which you should have the freedom to fully answer as you embark on your journey toward professional and personal success:
1. What’s Your Big Goal?
An important first step is to identify the “one” thing you must do, whether it be a financial opportunity, a timely opportunity, a business opportunity, or achieving a certain financial goal in your line of work. As a result, you get increasingly nearsighted, which helps you maintain focus on the important tasks.
2. What are your absolutes?
Perhaps the most important question is this one, to which you must give a clear-cut affirmative answer. What are the things you won’t budge on in your journey to achieving success or your major goal?
For instance, I read one new book every month, read No Negativity Allowed (a concept I picked up from Grant Cardone), and spend Sundays with family rather than working. Every morning, I keep in touch with these priorities and make them exceptionally clear by writing them down before anything else in my organizer.
““If you are not willing to risk the unusual, you will have to settle for the ordinary.”– Jim Rohn
3. What Are You Willing To Sacrifice?
In the unlikely event that you are truly pursuing your major goal(s), you ought to make a sacrifice. This penance could be spending time with friends, watching TV, going out to eat, or drinking that energizing 16 ounces of beer each week. Whatever it is, you need to be aware of what you are willing to give up in order to achieve what you need to. Recognize these things, and then just like everything else, keep track of them daily as a constant reminder of how important progress is to you.
Achievement isn’t simple. I trust it’s something I’m continually pursuing as I keep on developing expertly and actually in my life. Successful people didn’t get their success by doing anything. How But answering the three questions mentioned above was one of the most important things I could have done for myself to truly understand what success meant for me and get the hang of what I needed to do in order to achieve it. If you want to be successful, If I am you, I stay grounded, focused, and nearsighted by making notes of them, incorporating them reliably into my daily schedule, and thinking about them each and every day. But remember. Life is not a race. Spare some time to enjoy life!
