Succeeding at anything requires a large amount of effort
and usually a large amount of ability and knowledge.
There are 10 essential guidelines for success that you will
need to be aware of and incorporate into your plan for
success. These 10 guidelines can offer you the extra boost
that might just be the difference between success and
failure. Precision thinking needs precise action; the
following is an action guide for helping you to achieve
success in life or in business.
1. Set Targets that are beyond what you know that you can
achieve.2. Never be content with just mediocrity, but
aspire for the best.3. Be in control of your life and your
future rather than allowing others to choose for you.4.
Take action on what you know and continue to learn.5. Be
consistent; a little action every day amounts to a lot over
time.6. Be positive, and as Dale Carnegie once said, Don't
complain, condemn or criticise.7. Be a giver not a taker,
and design your life to help other people.8. Enthusiasm is
contagious and will do more to motivate others than
anything you say.9. Be a tough worker and never a
slacker.10. Be teachable and learn to teach others.
Set Goals that are beyond what you know that you can
Goal setting is a unqualified for success, otherwise how
are you going to grasp where you need to go; it is like
having a road map when you start out on a voyage. Set
your goals beyond what you know you can achieve; this
creates some incentive to reach them. Using good sense in
your goal setting is the essence. Determining goals that
are far too optimistic could cause discouragement when
not reached. Keep your goals before you so they're going
to be fresh concerning you when you commence every
day. Be sure to jot them down and occasionally review
then and update them if necessary. My old drill sergeant
used to claim, if you do nott have a target, you'll be
shooting in the mud. That is also correct for goals in life.
Never be content with just mediocrity, but aspire for the
If you are content with mediocrity, you are never going to
excel. Folk who excel make it their goal and aren't pleased
till they reach it. Folk who excel at anything work very
hard at it; it just doesn't happen by accident. They could
have been gifted from the beginning but it took a lot of
work and practice to develop their gift. Gifted musicians
practice their ability for hours on end. Sportsmen work
extremely hard to be able to perform as they do.
Be in charge of your life and your future rather than
allowing others to choose for you.
The difference between the individual that is content with
simply a job and people who dream to be successful
entrepreneurs is they take their future in their own hands;
they're not content with another individual setting all the
rules and making the plans for their regular lives. I don't
mean to seem opposed to working for someone else. I
have worked for others, but only till I was ready to work
for myself. In some instances success comes through the
venue of employment. But for plenty of people their best
success will be set by how skilful as an entrepreneur they
become. Rich, successful folks, in general, are the ones
who are in business for themselves.
Take action on what you know and continue to learn.
Don't wait until you think you know absolutely everything
about something to take action. Do something on things
as you learn them. I started building web sites a few years
back and have been learning and implementing as I'm
going. If I had waited till I presumed I knew it all, I still
would not have started.
Be consistent; a little action each day amounts to a lot
over a period.
The Bible is an especially enormous book. In truth it's a
book of 66 books. If it was written on ordinary thickness
paper it might fill a library. For several years I have read
thru the Bible each year. If you contemplate how small
ground you cover everyday it can be discouraging. I read 3
or 4 chapters every day and it appears to be nothing in
relation to how much has still to be read. But all I must do
is be consistent, and by December I'll be finished the
entire Bible. That is how enormous jobs are accomplished;
a little each day constantly. Here's a suggestion: Go to the
library and check out a book that parallels your interests
and read a chapter or two a day, or if that is too much, try
only 15 pages per day. Before very long the book will be
finished. And you will be prepared for book 2. Education is
gotten just a dribble at a time solidly.
Be positive, and as Dale Carnegie once declared, Do not
complain, condemn or criticize.
Successful folk as a rule are positive folks. Complaining,
condemning and criticizing are for losers. It is aggravating
and absolutely non-productive, yet many of us do those
things at least often. It does require time to wreck the
habit, but when you do it will free you and make you
about 100% more fascinating to others.
Be a giver not a taker, and design your life to assist others.
Let us face it we live in a whole world of takers who are
interested in 1 most of the time. When we break out of
that mould, we will then realize the gratification and joy
attached to helping others and also gain a valuable key to
becoming successful. Most successful folk have learned as
Napoleon Hill said in his book, Think and grow very rich,
that learning a real need that folk have and then filling
that need is a method to become rich.
Be enthusiastic; it is contagious and will do more to
incentivize others than anything you say.
Nothing gains the attention of others like enthusiasm; not
your appearance or what you say. It has long been
recognized that how you say something is very much more
important than what you are saying. The literal meaning
of enthusiasm is God in you. God is the most positive
force in the universe. The best enthusiasm comes when a
person really has God in them. This only occurs when we
have a private relationship with Almighty God.
Most people are lazy when talking about doing things they
have no desire to do . That explains why it is important
to choose what you need to do in life rather than letting
life take the decision for you. The most suitable time to do
that is when you are young and single and do not yet have
the duties of raising a family which can imprison you in a
job you don't want to do; not that it can not be done later
on when you do have responsibilities. I did not know what
I would have liked to do until long after I had an other half
and children. It is just much more hard then. Doing what
we enjoy makes it easy not to be lazy. Sure you can be lazy
about some things, but when talking of your success, it is
going to take plenty of difficult work and slackness isn't
A know it all will always be ignorant because they have
fooled themselves into believing they understand already.
Not one soul on this earth has more than a tiny part of the
information now available, let alone the realization that is
still un-discovered. Gaining knowledge is a life long trip; it
never ends. I started university like a know it all and
graduated realizing how little I know matched against all
there is to know. Un-teachable, know it everybody is by
their own ignorance destined to always be ignorant. Being
teachable is a mark of intelligence.
Teaching others and forming a network is like cloning
yourself. Instead of only 2 hands and one brain you can
have many. No one person can achieve near the things a
web of folks can, who are united in reaching a goal that
benefits all concerned. My friend this is among the
greatest techniques of success.
