"The toughest thing about success is that you've got to keep on being a success."- Irving Berlin
GET OFF THE PATH YOU ARE CURRENTLY ON
Every single person on the planet Earth goes through a period in life in which they are stuck in second gear, and then stay stuck in that position for many, many years. It doesn't have to be that way for you if you are brave enough to change your day-to-day habits that have caused you to not be able to move forward in life.
Even when you feel that you are achieving decent career goals, you need to visualize an even greater lifestyle than the one you currently enjoy so you can achieve greater success.
A good success principle that you can start using today would be to get up an hour earlier than usual and educate yourself on a subject that you can apply to your personal life or business success. This could mean taking an online business course in sales methods or you could take a course in PowerPoint so you can get ahead at your job, which will result in a pay increase if you can tackle the advanced skill level of PowerPoint. Just start doing three things in your life differently so you can shake up your existence in life immediately, even if that means moving to a city that will pay you more for whatever career you currently have.
PUT YOUR GOALS IN WRITING
It's amazing how powerful a business plan can be in a company's overall success, so you really need to apply this success principle to your own career and personal goals as well. You need to list specific factors in your life that would allow you to generate the best methods in accomplishing your life goals. A list of 10 things you need to change in your life is a great way to start reaching logical steps you need to take today to get that ultimate goal realized tomorrow.
Even if you can only change five things in your life that you have written down, you are still five steps closer in getting that second stream of cash revenue coming to your bank account that you have been dreaming of for the last few years, which means eventually you will be able to quit your dreaded main job and just concentrate on achieving more monetary success by increasing the dollar amount of that second stream of money coming to you every month.
LET GO OF YOUR FEARS
it is just human nature to fear change in your life, but to really apply these important success principles, you HAVE to put all of your fear of the unknown in the back of your mind and just go for the real goals in your life that will bring you ultimate happiness. It will be a huge shock to you when you have started educating yourself on a different career path or have started earning another revenue stream, when you realize that you were stuck in first gear for the entire past seven years and now you are propelling yourself forward in life faster than a 2007 Corvette!
Yes, that is what will start happening to you within the first few months of taking charge of your life and implementing these success principles that will change everything around you for the better. Your previous views on what success really means to you will change forever just by taking one day out of your busy work schedule and educating yourself on a better way to deal with your financial matters which have gotten you $40,000 in credit card debt. Once you have determined that you need to consult a debt consolidation company that will gladly help you out for free, you have taken a major step in reigning in your out-of-control financial crisis.
TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR OWN LIFE
There comes a certain time in everyone's life when you have two choices to make:
1. Keep blaming everybody else for your troubles in life and continue on the same path that has lead you to total disaster.
2. Own up to the fact that you are responsible for your own life and it's time to change your life for the better starting today!
If you want to achieve success in life, it is all resting on your shoulders right now. Success principles can only work for you if you work for them. There is no guardian angel looking after you that will help you reduce your debt or help you attain a new job that pays $1000,000 a year. No, you have to figure out the exact career or personal path you need take to achieve those realistic goals of yours and guide yourself into that position as quickly as possible. You need to have a sense of urgency in this goal reaching task because you will fail otherwise.
The best way to overcome fear and achieve overall life success is to be aware every day that time is ticking off your calendar, and every second counts in life. A realistic time frame in changing your everyday lifestyle is the only thought process that will help put these excellent success principles to work for you today.
