In life, we are all striving for success ultimately. Whether it be a successful relationship, occupation or feeling good in yourself. So, what is stopping us? We are our own worst enemy. We are preventing ourselves from achieving our full potential and great success. Here is a guide to achieving success through following five personal philosophies.
Challenge yourself always
To develop and grow as a person, you must challenge and push yourself to your limits consistently. Try and get yourself out of your comfort zone. It will really help you to experience new things and feel more confident and braver to reach for higher goals. You will also realise the potential you never thought of before! It's a win-win situation! Sometimes it's not just our ability that prevents us from achieving greatness; it's our mindset that needs altering.
Have the philosophy that everything that happens to you in life results from your past actions whether these are physical actions or mental thoughts. Take responsibility for things that go wrong in life that you had the chance to control and change and learn from your mistakes. Think of each situation as "what will be the long-term repercussions of this choice I'm making?" Is it still worth it? Let's be honest, some things in life are totally out of our control, but control what is controllable in your life and take full responsibility for your actions. Accepting your mistakes and taking accountability are the first steps to achieving greatness.
Act from your personal power
Your 'personal power' is your ability to take a specific action. The main thing that prevents you from doing so is fear. The fear of failure is so common amongst us, but we need to alter our mindsets to one where there are no failures, only learning curves that allow us to achieve successful results. Failure is not a failure; it's a positive experience on your way to success. Some of us achieve our goals but all of us end up getting a result, so think of every result as a success.
Adapt your communicative approach
So, you're trying and trying to reach the result that you desire, but you're not getting what you want. It's time to change your approach, and more specifically, the communicative side of your approach. Clearly, there is an issue with your tone, body language and communication skills. Change the words you use, the sound of them and body language. Make them more concise, confident and eloquent. Communication is vital for success, so if this needs changing, then change it!
Commit to the route of success
Without harming others, commit to the route that will lead to greater things in life. After all of the above philosophies are followed, all that is left is committing to them and staying on track. Stay strong and determined. It is vital to take a disciplined approach, so you do not side-track and eventually lose sight of your goals and aspirations of a successful life. If in doubt of yourself and the long road you are on to achieving success, remember why you are in this mindset. Remind yourself why you are here in the first place and all the handwork you have done to get to the stage you are at. Stay committed; you're almost there!
