Ways To Be More Successful Including 12 Tips To Help You Succeed

Most people want to be more successful but very few get to fulfill their ambitions and unleash their true potential mainly because they become the architecture of their own downfall rather than being the architecture of their own destiny and success.

Many people have been conditioned not to become successful whilst other can either become naive in their anticipation for success or they want something so much that it actually works against them.

Success is a process of following certain procedures. First you have to know or have a good idea what you want and you will need to have a clear vision of your desired outcome.

You need to take the path of least resistance and you need to put less pressure on yourself and focus more on enjoying what you do, this also means your happiness, your thought process and you mood should not be a condition of achieving your goal.

The first hurdle to overcome is the fear of failing, the only real failure you can have is the failing to pursue your goals. 

Yes you will come against challenges and you will probably get things wrong but if you learn from your mistakes and failures and use them to motivate you to do better then you will have learned a valuable lesson.

Even when people are making steady progress they keep on shooting themselves in the foot by focusing on the lack of results they expected and anticipated and what targets they have set themselves but not yet reached rather than focusing on the success and progress they have already achieved and made.

Being successful involves many things.This will involve learning and more learning, with most goals you will need to do your research. 

Your journey should be enjoyable but it can involve setbacks and disappointments but you should remain positive and optimistic even during the dark and difficult times. 

You need to be fully committed, you need to keep on instructing your mind to what you want and you need to practice and do what ever it takes combined with staying inspired, motivated

You need to be mentally and physically right and even though success requires effort and a certain amount of discipline and work ethic you need to try and avoid to much stress or negative emotions.

The ideal state is calm and in the flow so even though you have to do the action work you also have to let things work out without trying to hard to control everything or force things to happen as well as working on staying relaxed and focused only on what you want.

You also need to listen to and follow the advice of other successful people but sometimes you have also follow your own intuition and do it your way as well at times. 

Try not to chase or obsess about the money side of things and focus more on excellence, value and being the best you can in your chosen field. Stay focused on your goal, you will probably need to make sacrifices but don't sacrifice your enjoyment, your well-being and even your health on your goals.

Success can be defined in many ways and in someways your already successful with somethings. 

You have to define what success means to you, success to some people could be being wealthy, being successful at what they do and high achieving or just being happy, enjoying life and having good relationships.

You have to feel passionate and excited about your goals, because your dream does not excite you and get you empowered and motivated you will find it hard to keep your focus and push yourself to do what is necessary to accomplish it. 

Enthusiasm and a strong will to drive you to go after what you want is also a good attribute to have, but you will also need have the required skill level. 

But although skill levels is important it needs to be backed up by the right mental attitude and the right emotional and physical state because sometimes when things aren't going well you have to look at what's going on inside.

If your goal is just something you think you should do you your doing it mainly because you know you can do it may not be enough, because if you’re not really excited about it the chances are that you’re going to have a hard time focusing on completing your goal. 

It will help if your passionate about your goals combined with having a love of what your doing so it becomes something you enjoy doing instead of becoming a chore and task that you think you have to do.

1) Have a success mindset

Success starts of in the mind so the right positive mindset and mental attitude is essential if you want to be highly successful, in fact most successful people claim that the right mindset is more crucial than the action part of things.

Before you attempt to bring a dream into reality you have to believe it's achievable to you, this will require having a strong faith that you have the ability to accomplish the success that you desire.

All successful people know they are capable of achieving their goals, they know that the world is full of opportunities and when opportunity does come knocking on their door they don't, hesitate, procrastinate or self doubt themselves too the point where they convince themselves that it's beyond their abilities, instead they grab it with both hands.

2) Have a clear vision

There are two parts to becoming successful, the first and probably the most important part of being successful is the mind work and developing a positive strong focus and mental attitude, the second is doing the action steps. 

There will be thought processes that you will have to change, some of the mind work involves, 

  • Positive mental attitude 
  • Positive and constructive thinking 
  • A strong desire 
  • Faith in your abilities
  • Belief in yourself
  • Dreaming
  • Having a clear vision and visualization
  • Giving your mind clear instructions of what you want 
  • Asking yourself questions

Everyone who has achieved big success and those who went on to change the world and make a big difference in people's lives all had one thing in common which was they had a clear vision of what they wanted.

They pursued their dreams and defiantly overcome all obstacle until success became the only option and outcome. They had a plan which they put into action and overcame any hurdles that come their way.

3) You have to make sacrifices 

Depending on the size of your goal you will probably have to make sacrifices and you will have to put in a lot of time and effort if you want to achieve big success. The secret is to work smarter not harder.

Those who are willing to make sacrifices achieve great things, but it can be hard at times when everybody else is out enjoying themselves and your working hard to achieve your dreams. 

What you have to remember is it will all be worth it in the end because when you have a strong passion, desire and determination to succeed then you will have all the ingredients to defy the odds.

You will go on to accomplish your goals and achieve great things because a burning desire and string faith rarely leads to failure.

4) Don't get disheartened

Nobody completes a goal without setbacks, they will be challenging times to overcome so if you find yourself getting discouraged about not being able to achieve your goals remember all high achievers start off small.

So it doesn't matter where you are at the moment because from small acorns large tree's grow but you have to sew the first seeds and then feed and nourish them. It is important that you do not allow the opinions of others to discourage you or drag you down.

Your power is you and your true power lies on the inside,  take your goals one day and one step at a time. Don't give you attention to things that don't matter and put all your focus and energy onto the things matter the most

Accept the best and strive to be the best, continually renew your approach and change your direction if need be, and remember attitude is what separates the successful from the none successful.

You have to make your mind up that your not going to let your limiting beliefs and old ways of thinking destroy your chances of success.  Do not allow the negative self talk to overpower you.

If that inner voice start to sabotage you say to yourself, "your not going to allow that to happen this time and your are going to do what ever it takes to turn your dream into a reality and your going to make it happen"

Quickly dismiss, overrule or replace any unhelpful or self sabotaging thoughts, if need be be firm and overpower that negative you.

5) Listen and learn

Successful people are generally good listeners and good learners, they are always reading, listening, watching and studying then they apply the techniques, knowledge and principals that they have learned to make them more successful. 

They are always trying to better themselves and what they are doing, so don't be afraid to step out of your comfort zone and ask for help or seek advice if you need it.

It definitely helps if you can enjoy what your doing, if your having to force yourself to do the activities and action work against you will then your chances of succeeding will decrease. 

This means you need to be willing to listen and learn and accept you might have to change the way you think and change the way you do things. If you want things to change and you want better results then you have to be willing to change your life and attitude.

6) Dealing with failures

The journey to success does not always run smoothly, you will have setbacks and perceived failures so it is something that you need to learn to deal with.  

There will be times when you ask the question is it worth it, there will be times when you think your making good progress but then the next minute you finding yourself stuck or going backwards.

See each failure as an opportunity to learn, redo what your doing if necessary and do things better. When it feels like it's all too much keep a positive mental focus and attitude, keep your self talk positive because in challenging times that old self defeating voice will rear it's ugly head and always mainatain positive expectations.

7) Never give in

Inspired motivation, a strong determination and an unstoppable and unbreakable attitude of your going to do whatever it takes to be successful is the foundation and key component of achieving success.

The more you can enjoy your journey the quicker you will reach your destination, having said that it probably won't all be plan sailing so you have to be very careful you don't slip into a negative spiral.

Sometimes you have to weather and come through the storm to experience the sunshine. Many people quit when their so close to a breakthrough, so keep positive and laugh at adversity and if you have good intentions and a burning desire and you keep progressing and working then you will get there in the end. 

At difficult times remember that if everybody gave up when things weren't going to well or if the successful allowed logic to determine what they could achieve and if they let their mistakes and failures limit their future their would be few success stories and we would still be living in the dark ages.

You never really know how close you are to getting that all important breakthrough. If you quit or don't even start then one thing is for sure, you will never no what could have been or nothing will happen.

Most people attempt their goal and they decide that there first efforts are not very good so they wrongly assume they just aren't very good at what there doing so they never bother again. But it takes time and practice to master a new skill so stick at it and your get better and better.

When things aren't going so well, tell yourself, this is how it is right now, this situation is just temporary and I know everything will work out, then take a mini break if needed and the just keep focused and keep taking action.

8) Trust it will happen 

The successful already have a firm belief that they can and they will achieve their goals before they even begin the action work. The difference between the ones that succeed and the ones that don't are, the ones that succeed don't focus on the the how to begin with they just believe that it will happen.

There main priority to start with is the why, this can involve focusing on all the positive benefits and rewards for you and for others. The successful knows you don’t need to know the how part straight away they just know that they will achieve their dreams before they even start the action part. 

The successful minded just know and trust that the process will work and the how will become evident when the time is right. They know that everything will fall into place and each step will be revealed when the time is right and when the previous action step as been completed. 

They will work things out as they go knowing each piece of the jigsaw will fit into place and the next step will be revealed to them as and when needed with the knowledge and wisdom that by taking inspired action they will be guided towards their goals step by step. 

Whilst the people who tend to give up too soon spend all their time trying to figure out the how and they let their old beliefs and self doubting sabotage their efforts, in other words they get in the way and they try to control and force the process and outcome.

9) Stay in the zone

Make every effort to stay in the zone because when your in a state of flow then everything else will fall into place without you having to try to hard, this happens because you aren't resisting the current of  flow of life energy.

When you are truly in the flow, you will find things work out much better, you will be more creative and you will gain access to more vital universal information and idea's.

But it takes constant mind work and taking care of yourself physically to stay in the present and in the feel good zone, it is all to easy especially at the beginning to allow outside circumstances to disrupt and derail your positive momentum.

So if you start to feel negative, change the story, meditate and get quickly back in the zone, because when your in a flow state you don't need to push or make a big effort to make things happen. 

If there is a situation in your life that is causing you to have a negative focus of attention or if something is not working out, let it go. Because being in the flow means having no resistance to your free flowing calm natural positive state.

10) Keep on trying

The chances are you won't get everything right to start with, but don't get disheartened, keep on trying new things and keep on persevering. The fear of failure or the assumption that your not good or capable are first untrue and they are they are dream killers.

Don't be scared to try something in case you fail, the last thing you want when you reach the end of your life is to be full of regrets. Even if you don't achieve the results you wanted you will still achieve more than you would if you do nothing.

Sometimes a failure is just a chance to access and review your goals and where your at, then change or do things differently. At least you know that you give it your best shot and you did your best, and even if one thing does not workout it does not mean you cannot try something different because when one door of opportunity closes another one opens.

Don't be tricked into convincing yourself that your not capable or talented enough of achieving your goals or becoming successful instead think along the lines of, if others can do it there is no reason why you can't.

11) Find some solitude time 

If you want to work things out or come up with better ways of doing things or if you want to tap into your creative powers then you will need to find somewhere where there are no outside distractions.

You will also need to some solitude time where you can be totally relaxed and free of an internal distractions or negative thinking patterns. When you turn off that mental chatter and you switch off from your daily troubles and you just learn to relax and be still then that's when you tap into your creative powers.

This is why meditation is so good, going for a walk by yourself or finding somewhere quiet where you can sit or even just having a relaxing bath are all good ways of tuning into your true powers. 

You don't have to force things, just chill out and let your mind do the work for you because you will often find that the information you want comes to you when your relaxing and not trying. Just make sure you have a pen and notebook to jot down any idea's that come to you.

12) Keep taking action

The successful person will first set their intentions, they also know they have to take immediate and inspired action and then they have to keep on taking action. 

You have to take inspired action and you need to be fully committed to your goal, so again the more you can enjoy the action the easier it is to motivate yourself to do it.

That often involves acting quickly, you will often find that many people try to wait for the right moment to get started. But most big goals can be challenging and hard at times so if your waiting for that perfect moment to get started it might never happen.

Of course you should do everything you can to feel good and it is wise to to some planning, but you should act as soon as you can even if your only taking small steps because doing something is always better than keep on putting things off.

Successful people are not influenced by the negative doubts of others, they believe they can achieve their goals and they only listen to constructive advice or criticism, they also learn to trust and follow their gut intuition.

They will learn and develop all the skills that they need and more to take them through each step and onto the next level. The successful are always trying to better themselves, hit their peak perfomance levels and improve their skill levels.
