Successful people are found everywhere. People who are successful in their career, in relationships, in their studies, people who are successful in their lives. We look at them and want to be one of them. We all want achievements. So, what is the mantra of success? If you are one of the people who's struggling to discover the mystical truth about this 7-lettered word, join the club!
Everybody has their own meaning of success which is defined by what they want to get from life. We just need to discover our own meaning of success and work for it. Once we have a clear idea of what we want to achieve from life, half the battle is won. The meaning of success won't come to you easily. You have to question your inner self extensively to understand the meaning of success.
Besides realizing the meaning of success, you need to have oodles of confidence. You should always possess a high and positive psychology and self image. If you believe in yourself, you'll make others feel the same for you. You are not responsible for what others think of you. But you are responsible for what you give them to think about yourself. If you think you are sure of yourself, everyone else will think so. If you are always doubtful, people will conceive you as a confused and unconfident person. A confident person doesn't need to introduce himself as "Hi! I am a confident person. Nice to meet you." Confidence oozes from his personality and the moment he enters a room, everyone gets a positive vibe from him.
You can train your brain to achieve success. The day you understand the meaning of success, you can start thinking in positive terms of achievement of your goals. If you think you can, you will. It is rightly said, Nothing in this world is impossible. Even the word 'IMPOSSIBLE' says 'I M POSSIBLE'. Taking correct decisions is also a must. If you are hard working, sincere, intelligent and confident but you always end up taking the wrong decisions, it would be very difficult for you to come face to face with success. There are people who do everything they can but don't achieve success and they blame it on their luck. Its not their luck. Its their decision making which doesn't allow them to become successful.
I'll give you an example. Consider an entrepreneur who's hard working, resourceful, confident and knows all the tricks of trade but always ends up investing in the wrong business. He suffers loss every time he tries to do something new. The easiest way out for him is to blame his luck and quit. But the better option will be to ponder on the decisions he has taken in the past and try and locate the loopholes. Maybe he is overlooking a few crucial facts which guide him to failure every time. The art of good decision making comes with experience.
I read a small story somewhere which beautifully described this. A very successful man was asked: "What is the secret of your success?'. He replied," Just Two words: Right Decisions". The man was asked again: "How do you make right decisions?" He said, "Just one word: Experience". Now the Interviewer got really interested and asked further: "How do you get experience?" The man smiled and said, "Again two words, my friend: Wrong Decisions." This is the reality of life. You do something wrong and learn from it. And when you try that again, you make sure that you don't repeat your mistake. People who learn from their mistakes go a long way in life. They are the people who find the true meaning of success. They are the people who truly live their life.
Everybody can be successful. You just have to understand the meaning of success and make yourself think on the lines of "I can do it and I will do it". Once you have the faith in yourself no one else come in the way of you and your success.
If you work hard and fail, people might laugh at you. This can make you think in the negative direction. It can also shake your confidence and lower your self esteem. So, the best way out is to ignore the people who comment on you. People make fun of a person only when they are jealous. Always remember, the object of people's jealousy are not the people who are at the bottom of the ladder but the ones who shine with all their might on the top. So if you see people making fun of you, understand that your destination is not too far.
