Believe it or not, we have all have the power within ourselves to practically guarantee success. By researching and examining what is realistic and attainable, you can first make sure you only set goals that you can reach, and only the goals you really want to spend time on.
Succeeding is honestly as easy as doing. In the moment, it may seem hard – probably because you’re looking at the giant hairy goal’s result instead of the small daily tasks you need to do to succeed. But, for overall success, whatever the victory may be, it just needs a series of steps and activities that lead to the result. Without action, there is no success.
Practice Daily Gratitude
It might seem backward, but success starts with gratitude. Practicing gratitude gives you a moment to break away from all the daily stress life brings and just be happy.
Happiness, it turns out, provides determination and motivation. Each morning, use gratitude to start your day off with positivity by thinking of something that you are grateful for right now at this moment. Even if it’s only that you can breathe or drink coffee, that is good enough. Your day will be joyful when you are filled with gratitude.
Live with Intention
Determine what you want out of life and live it with intention. This means to live your life as though you mean it, with purpose and aim, and act like you want something out of it.If you want to achieve this goal, it’s time to prove it to yourself.
Realize you are the only one who can change your life and make it happen. Be mindful of your time and create a clear plan of action to achieving your goals. Look deep within yourself and see what needs to be fixed or updated to get you to where you need to be. Maybe your routine needs a change, or just your mindset.
Anytime you think of something negative, replace it with positive thoughts. Stop justifying your negativity; stop making excuses; stop trying to rationalize or explain away or make light of something you feel bad or unhappy about.
Wherever possible, remove the negative thing and/or people from your life and replace it with people and things that encourage positivity and growth. The feelings you have inside determine your next actions. And believe it or not, you control your feelings because feelings are reactions, and you are 100 percent in control of your responses.
If you are upset, angry, sad, frustrated, or something else, it is likely your next move isn’t going to be a good one. Better to take time to get through it than make decisions at that point.
If you are feeling confused and angry when you try to do something, you will probably not do it as well as if you were happy and excited to do it. Take steps to make sure you change your negative thoughts into positive ones by creating a habit of switching negative thoughts to positive ones (or at least neutral ones).
Keep track of your goals. Keep track of your plans to achieve those goals. You are your progress and any results as you go along with it. Seeing your goals daily, as well as you the proof of accomplishment, will give you the motivation you need to keep going.
Make sure this information is readily available and something you will see and/or will read each day. For example, train yourself to look at your diary or planner every day at certain times. Anything with a thought-out plan with steps to achieve it will see success.
