To start with, success is always associated with many people because they stand a chance of bring fame to themselves and their colleagues. Success unlike failure has some steps to it, whereas from
some interviews made amongst students, 100% of their generality desire to be successful without knowing the steps to achieving this. I write to give them some secrets of success. Here are 5 tips to it. Enjoy it!
1 - Always be positive. Think success not failure. Beware of a negative environment.The moment you start saying to yourself 'I cant' , ' I wont ' , then you wont because it deters you from organizing yourself, in as much as your inner mind keeps on giving you bad notions about yourself. You have to stand up to your challenges(academically, private life, etc) and say to yourself ' I can ' ' I will ' . You have to be positive and you will notice that everything falls through your path.
2 - Decide upon your true dreams and goals. Write your specific dreams and goals out. Set out your goals to set out your success. Develop a plan to reach them. Goals are those concret ,measureable stepping stones of achievement that track your progress towards your dreams. Dont follow people in deciding your dreams or setting your goals,decide/ set it yourself. Deciding your dream makes you a
successful person,follow the path in which you have written and press forward on it day by day.
3 - Never stop Learning : Learning they say is a non-stop habit. Try to learn everyday,develop your brain everyday,let your brain take in something new everyday. Do not wait until you're being directed to read. Make your reading everying. Becoming a life long learner would be of a benefit to you and its something you should develop.
4 - Be Persistent and Work Hard : Success is a marathon,not a sprint. Never give up. Every story of success I read entails long hard hours of work. There is no getting around this and there is no short-cut to this. But if you're working towards something that you're passionate about,something you love then success will not be your enemy. Hardwork pays and persistence makes haters flee from you. Some notable successful people in Nigeria today are successful because they are very hardworking,therefore cultivate the habit today.
5- Focus Your Time and Money: Don't let other people or things distract you. Remain laser focused on your goals and sorround yourself with positive people that believe in you. Don't be distracted by the naysayer's or tasks that are not helping you achieve your goals. Be 100% focused on whatever you know would make you successful and a success in your field.
