What does success mean to you?
How would you define it in your way of words?
Do you measure it by the goals you attain?
Is it what you have? Is it buying your first home? A car?
The definition of “success” is a “favourable outcome”. It is something you complete and a goal that is reached.
We all want to be successful in something. We all dream it. I know that when and if I do complete a Certificate in Library Studies, that will be a “success” for me! When you finish something with an inward happiness in heart, I believe that that is what success is.
If I reach the VISION that I set out in my About Page – that would be a success for me personally. My desire is to reach out to young girls all over Australia, and even other countries. I even received great feedback from a fan in Pakistan!
Everyone wants to be successful at something. It’s naturally a human thing!
I want to be successful in studies, (future and past) work, home, personal development and any other thing in life. Striving for or seeking to achieve things in life is my top priority, and I want to share with you some top bonus tips.
At the start of this blog I asked some very important questions.
If you answered these then that’s great! You are on your way to identifying your passions and understanding what it is that you really want to do!
1. Make lists
Make a list of your short term and long term goals. Write all your past and future goals down so you have something to strive for in your week, day, month!
I’m a huge list maker, and I love using sticky notes with everything I do. Sometimes I write down what I need to do for the next day and tick them off the following day to make myself feel like I have accomplished something.
2. Educate yourself
Read up on your passions. If you love cooking I’m sure the first thing you google is recipes! So whatever your passion is, google about it!!!!
Gaining knowledge in your area is the best thing you can do. Like for fitness, you learn all the muscles in the body, what the best supplements are and vitamins you need to take daily and what is the best protein shake to have to trim yourself up!
Learning is the best way to achieve anything in life.
3. Live in the moment
My advice is to hold dear to the time you’ve got! Live with purpose and excitement! Focus on every bit of goodness that you can’t remember the last negative comment that someone said!!! Live each and every day as if it is your last. So, appreciate the beauty in every activity of every second of every single day.
Every day focus on the now – a good idea is to do a social media detox. This is what I did today. I deleted my face book and instagram apps so that it won’t be the last thing I look at before I go to sleep. I would rather see my Dads face, than someone I don’t know.
Plus it is good for the mind – if you want to be successful I suggest you start on working on mindfulness. Switching off your brain and every bit of technology and listening to classical music. I love to do that. It is very peaceful.
Live with PURPOSE! Spend five minutes practicing mindfulness and then get into list making!
“A successful life is not chasing after someone else’s dreams”
Huffington Post wrote a great article on “18 ways to live a successful life“. I love how they made a point to strive for personal growth. This is something I want continually. To grow and grow and grow! And eventually feel fulfilment from things I do.
