1. Share your Success
Although this may be more at the end of the process, it is important.
When you finally do reach your success, use your experience to teach,
guide, and mentor others so that they too might succeed.
2. Seek Input
Whatever your idea of success, conduct a “sanity check” throughout the
process of reaching your goal. This should be done with someone you
trust and who is themselves successful. Ask them to provide honest
feedback about your success and as you move through different
milestones, bounce concerns or new ideas off them to help keep you on
the right track.
3. Toxic Poisoning
No, we are not talking about actual poison but toxic people that can
poison. Unfortunately, it would be great if close friends or co-workers
could share in your success but all too often, there will be someone who
is either dealing with the “green monster” of jealousy or has a case of
the “I knew that” syndrome. If you are serious about reaching your
goal and being successful, you will need to rid your life of these people.
While you may not be able to get them out of your life completely, you
should avoid them as best as possible. If this is a person, you see every
day, keep your goals to yourself, and avoid that specific subject.
4. Be a Good Listener
To succeed, you need to learn how to listen first. Pay attention to other
people who have enjoyed successes in their life, attend seminars given
by people that can motivate and encourage, or be open to hearing that
a particular idea is not a good one. Good listening takes time to learn
but in the end, it will be your greatest tool.
5. Birds of a Feather
If you have a goal of being a best-selling author, find friends and
mentors who either have achieved that same goal or are also pursuing a
successful writing career. It is important to surround yourself with
people that can associate with your goal and passion, people who
understand the burning desire to succeed and can encourage when you
meet with disappointments.
