Discover Your Path to Success - Part 1
Success can easily be compared to the "genie trapped in a bottle." For many of us, it is a matter of finding a way to open the bottle, and then, follow a specific path. This path is filled with pitfalls, and traps, along the way, so it is wise to expand your vision by learning as you go.
To many people, success is a "fairytale" and as elusive as a Yeti. In reality, success is just around the corner, and sometimes already exists, as hidden treasure. I am not talking about sunken ships or Indiana Jones. What I am referring to are skills you already possess, friends and family who will help you, and accomplishments that you already have made.
When you put these hidden treasures, together, with your end goal in mind, you are on your way toward success. Now let's look at a way to move forward every day, live a quality life, and help everyone around you, in the process.
Write all of your goals down, and keep them in a place that you will see. This could be on a piece of paper in your pocket, on your desk top, in a notebook, in your diary, or on your palm pilot. Wherever you put this information, it should be a place where you will see it, every day.
Separate realistic from lofty goals, but don't throw lofty goals out. Also, separate short-term goals, from long-term goals, and design estimated time frames, for measured results. You don't have to share this with anyone, unless they share the same goal. If you have, at least, one close friend, spouse, or family, who shares the same dream, you are in a very strong position.
However, you don't need to be a "politician" to be successful, if you learn to focus on your goals, every day. Now we have to go over a few questions that will also help you design your road map toward success.
Will your goals hurt anyone? Will you have to step on anyone to get what you want?
If you answered yes to either one of the above questions, you should redefine your goal or goals, so you can achieve it or them without harming anyone in the process. If that is not possible, throw that goal out, and move on. Your goals should help people and be morally sound.
Do you have a real passion for your goals?
This one is also important because, if your goal is "flipping burgers" for money, it won't be long, before that gets old. I have yet to meet the person, who has a real passion for flipping burgers. Please don't get me wrong, some people are very good at it, but I have known many short order cooks, who wish they were doing something else besides "slaving" over a hot stove.
What you choose, must be something you love doing, and the money will follow. There are so many people, who craft an occupation, based upon money alone, and learn to regret it. If you have a purpose in life you have "self-worth." Self-worth is a very valuable hidden treasure.
