Road to Success
The principles contained in this article have been studied by countless number of people who have gained tremendous success in their life. If you practice the teachings below, you will undoubtedly be very successful.
Have the Right Associations
Surround yourself with others who share your philosophies on life. An association with others who align with your purpose in life will offer an advantage that will help you achieve greatness. Every successful person can trace their success back to the quality of their associations(friends).
Set GOALS ( Yes! it’s here again)
The guaranteed path to success is to decide exactly what you want, establish a plan to achieve it and surround yourself with people who can help you in the process. Write your goals somewhere you can read everyday. When you write it down, be sure to state what you want, when you want it, why you want it and how you are going to get it.
Develop Self Confidence
Others will believe you if you believe in yourself! Be confident but don’t tell the world what you can do, show it.
Learn to Save
Money which never ends up in a savings account is quickly spent, thereby making someone else rich. Know that you are only as rich as the money you have saved away. Savings can open the door to opportunity. Had Henry Ford not mastered the art of saving, he could never have amassed his wealth. His diligence with savings allowed others to trust him with their savings, which brought his ideas to reality.
Look your best
Dress for the kind of person you want to be in the future. An appearance of prosperity attracts favorable attention which leads to success. To attract successful people, you have to look successful.
We receive in life what we give. This is the universal principle which cannot be broken. The more you give, the more you receive. If you want love, give love. If you want happiness give others the gift of happiness. Whatever we shall give, will be returned in abundance.
Many people believe wealth is not a requirement for success. However, true success demands wealth because the person without money is at the mercy of the person with money. Wealth provides freedom which is required for success. Therefore, everyone on the path to success should strive for the financial security that wealth provides.
The only guaranteed way to be successful with anything you do is to do more than is required. Being average only gets you average results. When an individual does more at work, in a relationship, in a marriage, for others and for himself(herself) it is sure to bring success. Success is nothing more than a willingness to do more than the average person.
Learn to sell
Everything in life is being sold or bought. Teachers sell their knowlede to students. We sell our skills for a job. Parents sell their advice to their children. Selling is the secret to success in life because the moment you have nothing to sell, you cease to receive any form of compensation. The more you have to sell in life, the greater the number of things you can buy.
