10 Simple Tips to Become Successful

10 Simple Tips to Become Successful

We all want to be successful, right? Many people want the “secret” formula to become successful. If you are looking to become successful in anything; career, business, family, marriage, parenting, etc, it will take a lot of hard work. This work however, is well worth it when you see your dreams become a reality! Below I am going to share with you 10 simple tips to become successful. There are probably more than 10 actions or attitudes that you can do to become successful, however, these 10 “secret” tips are what I have found to be some of the most beneficial to becoming successful.

Here are 10 Simple Tips to Become Successful:

1. Never give up: Do not settle for remaining in your comfort zone. Remaining complacent is a good way to get nowhere.

2. Be passionate: If you love what you’re doing, it will never seem like work. Find your passion and you will find your success!

3. Be focused: Ask yourself: “What should I be thinking about right now?” Don’t let your mind wander and worry about things out of your control. Shut out the negative talk of others who don’t believe in what you are doing. When you remain focused, you can accomplish much more in a shorter amount of time.

4. Keep in the ‘moving forward’ zone: Listen, learn, apply, and move forward. Do not procrastinate on taking action. Success doesn’t wait for you, success attracts people who are in chasing it.

5. See yourself as victorious: That will focus you in the right direction. Have a mental picture of yourself already achieving the success that you desire. Success always happens in the unseen before it is manifested in the seen.

6. Be tenacious: Resist the urge to give up if you don’t see results. Most people quit just before they are going to have a breakthrough. Success takes time! If what you are doing is not getting you the results that you are looking for, analyze the situation and make small tweaks. Sometimes being stubborn can work wonders!

7. Be lucky: I really don’t like the word “lucky.” However, for this point, the old saying, “The harder I work, the luckier I get” is absolutely right on. You create our own “luck” by working both hard and smart, never giving up on the success which is yours; claim it!

8. Believe in yourself: If you don’t believe in yourself, no one else will either. Don’t wait for others to believe in you, they will start to believe in you when they see your belief and passion that you have for your success. Believe that you can accomplish great things, because the reality is, YOU CAN!

9. Ask yourself: What am I pretending not to see? Be honest with yourself. Don’t ignore the negative things in your life as they can be the exact things that you need to overcome or to improve on that can point you in the direction for your success. There may be some great opportunities all around you, even if things aren’t looking so positive. Great adversity can turn into great victory.

10. Look at the solution, not the problem: Ask yourself, “how can I move from where I am to get to where I want to be, no matter how daunting the situation may be.” There is always a way around anything! Become “solution oriented” and find the silver lining for an opportunity to turn a negative into a positive.

If you want to become successful, begin to use these tips right now. You may not start to implement each one right away, but start with one or two at the beginning, and then as you become more efficient, you can add more to your plate.

Success Principles 101

In May of 2014 I had the honor of being invited to be a co-host and participate in a “tweet chat” about Success Principles with Lynette Gilchrist of Young Dream DiggersIn this tweet chat, Lynette asks me some great questions on what Success Principles are and what it is that successful people do differently. 

I wanted to share this chat with you so that you can learn what the Success Principles are. Once you understand what the principles are, you can then apply them to all aspects of your life, whether you are an entrepreneur or looking to advance your career. You can take the principles learned and improve every aspect of your life!

We also went on to discuss how successful people think differently than the majority of people. There are certain qualities and thought processes that successful people have learned. The great thing about success is that nobody is born successful, but that success is learned through using the principles discussed in the chat and then taking action! Isn’t that great news? No matter what you upbringing was or where you are now in your life, you can learn the principles and methods of successful people; You can become successful if you choose to!

I appreciated the opportunity that Lynette provided me to expose people to the Success Principles through the tweet chat and the value that she sees in teaching the younger generation the importance of understanding these principles and how they can apply them in their lives. 

To see the tweet chat, click on the link below for the transcript of the chat that we did. As always, please comment and leave me some feedback to let me know how these principles have helped you or which principles that you will implement into your life moving forward.

Enjoy the chat!
