The ONLY Secret of Success

Mar 14, 2008
People would usually measure success in a lot of ways. Success is sometimes measured on economic gains. The higher the salary, the more successful a person is tagged as some would say. Being appointed as CEO of a billion dollar company is usually regarded as successful. There are many ways of being identified as successful. Being a proud father or mother of newly born baby is sometimes regarded as successful.

Whether it be by material gain or by the simple non-material gains in life that a person has, it can always be regarded as being successful. How to become successful in anybody's perspective is another different question.

Success with regards to financial independence can be interpreted as being successful too. But what is financial independence? Others may define as financial independence as being able to have enough monetary possessions to be able to enjoy the best things in life.

In whatever plans a person may have in order for them to tell themselves that they are successful, getting towards success will require these important factors. It is planning ahead, perseverance, focus and keeping a positive outlook in life. One may notice that these factors are not secrets to everyone as anybody can have these traits.

Planning ahead means that finding it out what a person's measurements of success and how to get to it. One may measure success as becoming an established entrepreneur. This is the long-term goal. It will be necessary to plan what is the business idea that an entrepreneur will consider as his concept in making the business work. He may have to identify also how get funding for his business. It can start from his personal savings first then as the business starts to take off, additional funding can be obtained from bank loans or from external investors who may be interested in the long-term plans of the business.

Perseverance is important in the sense that it helps keep a person in the originally meantime long-term goal. If one has aspired to be great songwriter, writing songs that will make it big in the hit charts will not happen by writing just 1 or 2 songs overnight. Continuous practice in writing songs and listening or observing in what is the current trend today on what specific songs are bound for the global audience are equally important in order to be able to write a song that even though it follows the trend of song genre being listened by people around the world, it will still have its uniqueness that will make it special compared to other songs played in the radio or sold in record stores.

Focus means not accommodating other ideas that will make a person do a 180 degree change of priorities. If a young golfer for example has been determined in the past to be able to wear that much coveted green jacket from the Master's tournament and he's been playing golf for the last decade and suddenly gets an idea to pursue a different sport instead like tennis, that would mean that his priorities has changed and what would be left out of his ten years spent in developing his skills as a golf player? Developing that tennis backhand stroke on your 11th year in sports after playing 10 years of polishing that golf drive would mean that the years spent in playing golf may not have been the priority goal after all.

Keeping a positive attitude in life is the last in the list but its not necessary the least in importance. A positive attitude in life will allow any person to accomplish whatever he has originally planned for himself and it will also feed the drive for him to reach his goals. A positive attitude doesn't leave room for procrastination to come in. It also doesn't leave any room for hesitations. No matter how negative an environment a person may be in right now as long as he maintains that positive outlook in life, he can always assert himself positively and be able to see the bigger picture and still be able to move forward in achieving his goal towards the success road he has planned to take.
