Practical Approach To Achieve Success

Sep 8, 2008
The first step to success is to have a burning desire to succeed in whatever you want to. This will keep the fire burning within and give the much desired momentum. Remember, the power is within you. Make use of it to succeed. Also, have in mind the fact that there is a Supreme Power whose grace is required for your success.

Have you seen a pole vault event wherein the athlete scales dizzy heights?

Have you seen athletes pulverize the 100 meter track to clock under 10 seconds?

These athletes were amateurs at some point in time and their practice and perseverance alone brought them to the fore.

Likewise, anyone with focus in what he does is sure to succeed. Success also requires an individual to weigh pros and cons in a given situation and decide suitably. In this context, risk taking in a calculated manner is a must. Procrastination is to be avoided once a decision is made and we should get into action in right earnest.

A word of caution here. An ambitious person would take calculated risks whereas a greedy person is like a gambler. Gambling is not risk taking. A gambler becomes greedy when he is winning and wants to continue. When he is losing, a gambler still continues with the fond hope that he will regain what he lost. Hence, an ambitious person is one who will constantly assess the situation he is in and decide suitably as to continue or withdraw in whatever he attempts.

Success also requires us to do a self analysis of ourselves since we are the best judge about who we are, what our strengths and limitations are and what we want to achieve in our lives. Once we have done a thorough self analysis, a plan of action has to be drawn up. This will help in the following manner:

Self analysis
Plan of action
A clear plan avoids confusion
Clarity gives confidence in what you do
Confidence gives you the desired result and success.

After a plan is drawn up, we should start working on it one step at a time. The normal tendency of a person would be to keep worrying over the result or the outcome. This should be avoided and we must focus on the steps involved which will help to bring down our anxiety levels to a great extent. Ultimately to channelize our energy in the right fashion to accomplish the task.

Success is also ensured by constantly updating ourselves in whatever we do and in our chosen profession and industry.

But remember, the key words in this exercise are patience, perseverance and being hopeful of achieving success.
