How To Be Successful?

The honest truth is that I don’t know how to be successful. What is being successful anyway? Is it a mindset, a state of living, or the amount of money you have in a bank account? The answer is it can being any of those things, and more.

I am a success as a father, I successfully completely a few different courses. I also hold quite a few certifications, I consider myself a success in a few ways. However I am a failure in so many other ways. So can I consider myself to be an utter success? No of course not. But that is okay, because no one is.

I’m writing this post as a reminder, that you are doing better than you think. Even if you don’t feel like it is enough. What I find to be an indicator of actual results, and signs of improvement is consistency. Are you regularly putting forth effort to achieve your goals or to improve what you’re doing? Are you doing more than usual? If you answered yes to either then you are doing enough. You can always go above and beyond, though that does not work or appeal to everyone. Sometimes that is impossible for some people until they can better manage their limitations.

The only thing that matters is small consistent effort is made. That is all you need to be successful eventually. You only have to do what you can manage, as to not overwhelm yourself or burn out.

That is a broad statement is it not? That’s because it applies to every situation except for some extreme cases. No matter what you do you can succeed using this advice, you need only adapt it to your lifestyle and kind of work.

If you made it this far then you probably know I fibbed a little at the beginning when I said I do not know how to be successful. I know some strategies, I know what is needed. What I actually don’t know is what to focus this effort on. That is just my personal problem.

There is going to be a part two, to this post because at this point I am talking in circles. However if you enjoyed reading or took some inspiration be sure to keep watch for the next part.

I hope you like this post, have an amazing Morning/Afternoon/Evening!

Success! You're on the list.
