Everyone wants to be successful in life, the meaning of success for each and every one is different. But there are simple golden rules if you want to see yourself as a successful person some years down the line. Success does not come overnight. When your effort is in that direction starting from now, towards your goal, after some time your effort will start showing results or reaction which will be the success for you.
The definition of success itself is, “the accomplishment of an aim or purpose.”
In humans, this is one of the basic tendencies where we would want to control everything. This is not a circus that you want the animals to dance to your tunes. This is the life which is real. The need to control is toxic for you if you desire to see yourself successful. Yes controlling things is good, keeping yourself in control is good, one should have the control of his/her life but if you want to control everything and everyone that is not going to happen ever. Even if you are the most powerful person or the richest. The things which are in our control, learn to focus there and excel over there. If you want to control something, control your behaviour, the attitude in general towards everything, which reflects that how much potential you have within.
There is also another thing which needs to be given up sooner than anything, the desire or to be liked by everyone, to please everyone. Not everyone is ever going to like you because it is not your fault, it is the way people are. People will like you and they will hate you. This is one simple mantra which has to be followed religiously, you always do your own work and focus towards your aims, irrespective of thinking whether who likes you or dislikes you. Never ever lose your confidence if more people hate you because Dr. House once said, “If nobody hates you, you’re doing something wrong.”
There is a reason we have a conscience and it does bite! Listen to it, follow it to achieve success in life – whatever that success may mean to you.
