When most people think of success, they think of wealth. When I think of success, I think of accomplishments. I think of finishing what I started. Whether it’s a short term goal or a long term goal. As long as it gets completed, it’s successful. No matter how long it takes, just keep going until it’s finished.
A lot of people think in order to be successful, you have to be a perfectionist. I say they can all kick rocks. Success is mostly about making mistakes and learning from them. In order to be successful, you need to have a platform of what not to do. What better way to create that platform than to do it yourself.
There are several ways to be successful in life, you just need to know where to start. This can be done by finding out what it is you want to be successful at. Take for instance, if you want to be successful at modeling. You need to do extensive research. Modeling isn’t as easy as it looks. Staying fit is the number one hardship models face. You have to make sure that you can say no to that blueberry muffin when you come across it. Next, you want to figure out what type of model you want to be. There are a number of different models. They range from swimsuit models to catalog models, to even make up models. It’s all in what you are trying to accomplish. If you want to be a doctor, there are years of schooling involved. You want to be television news anchor, you need to be very articulate and fluent in any language you speak. Whatever the case may be, just make sure you have a starting point.
If financial success is your main focal point, then you should probably know this doesn’t come overnight. Now, that’s not to say that one day you won’t hit the lottery and become an overnight millionaire. What I’m saying is, you’ll have a better chance of getting struck by lightening before that happens. So, I’d strongly recommend you take a look at your finances in real life, and go from there. What is your successful goal? Are you trying to buy a house, buy a car, maybe have children, whatever you are trying to accomplish, just have a plan in place; financial success can be very tricky and challenging.
So, the next time someone asks you what does being successful mean, just tell them the sky is the limit. You can do anything you set your mind to. Success isn’t always about money. Don’t be fooled by those gimmicks you see on television. Trust me, those people did not get rich overnight. They would like you to think that it’s that easy, but, it’s not.
