Regardless of how old you are, where you live, or what your career goals are, everybody’s ultimate goal in life is to be happy, successful, fruitful, and live a fulfilling life.
Identify your passions. Before you can achieve success, you will have to define what success means to you. While it may take years to realize what you want to do with your life, identifying your passions, interests, and values will help you set goals and give your life a sense of meaning. Ask yourself the following questions:
o What do you want your legacy to be?
o How would you like to be remembered by others?
o How do you want to make your community a better place?
o What are your subjects of interest?
o What is it that you do and feel a sense of fulfillment?
o What is that thing that you will do even if you are not paid to do it?
Becoming rich is not about luck, starting big or being intelligent but it is all about having certain beliefs about success and life. I have seen some of the smartest people die very poor.
Your success, happiness or anything you truly want for your life has to begin with an unwavering, and burning desire, commitment, and persistence. Without it, you cannot withstand and overcome the tests that will be put in your way. It is through the tests, that you discover yourself and your purpose, which is what you were really looking for to begin with. It has been said that the kite rise the highest against the storm not with it.
Success is the accomplishment of an aim or purpose. Earl Nightingale says, “Success is the realisation of a worthy idea” When speaking about successful people, many minds go straight to people like the CEOs, or the major leaguer, or the published writer. When in reality, YOU TOO can be successful. Success can mean many things. For me, a large part of success is accomplishing my audacious goals and dreams. Success can be happiness, a good family life, and a life full of purpose and meaning. But few could argue that true success is found in a life lived, not dreamed. One dominated by action, not the desire to act. A life filled with fears faced, limits pushed, and relationships cultivated. A successful life is one filled with experience and action, not wishes.
Success demands different things from each experience. But it does require one thing from all of us: effort, both in quality and quantity.
Have the courage to be who you are and pursue it with passion. Be different. Be bold. Embrace your ambition.
You are the C.E.O of your success!!! (MARSHAL CHIZA)
