Let me start by calling your attention to a common saying in our society which says that, “The rich is getting richer while the poor is getting poorer”. Is this statement really true? Yes, indeed. The reason this is the case is; the rich keeps getting richer because they keep on doing the things that got them to be rich in the first place, while the poor keeps on getting poorer for the same reason. They keep on doing the things that got them poor in the first place. Are you surprised? Think about these things! People, who succeed, succeed for specific reasons while people who fail, fail for certain specific reasons also. Again, people who succeed have specific habits that they adhere to every day, on a consistent basis while people who fail have the habits that they consistently follow, too.
LET US CONSIDER THE FOUR VITAL STEPS TO SUCCESS, IF STRICTLY ADHERED TO, YOU WILL SURELY BECOME SUCCESSFUL IN LIFE.
YOU MUST BE WILLING TO CHANGE.
This is the basic step to success. If doing the same things that you have been doing can actually make you rich, then you should have been very rich by now. The bottom line is that you need to change your approach to certain things in life. One thing that is constant in life is change and most people are afraid to change. The truth is that change is a necessity. Life is about change, nothing ever stays the same; that is why you are no longer in diapers at your age. In order words, we are changing by getting older daily, fatter, balder whether we like it or not. I am not saying that you need to change overnight, but you have to strongly recognize that you need change and this is the first step in the right direction towards success in life.
Note that success is a journey and the journey of a million miles starts with the first step. You must be willing to change by making up your mind to change. Start with your thought processes. Successful people obviously reason differently from the so-called “Masses”. It could be hard, but think about success, abundance, wealth, great achievements etc. think positive thoughts about yourself. Believe in yourself.
YOU MUST DECIDE TO TAKE ACTION.
The reason why most people never accomplish anything of significance is that they never take the first step. You must make a decision to do something because this is another step towards success. It is quite amazing how so many people will talk, talk about doing something different or new, but never take action. The second thing that most people are afraid of, in my own opinion, is the ability to venture into a new thing. We all hate to leave our comfort zones; that is why it is hard to bring ourselves to taking that very first vital step.
The real thing is to realize that nothing will change in your life until you take action. In taking action, the first thing to do is to find yourself a successful person who will be your mentor. Who will be with you to guide that first step and each step of your way. We have a lot of them out there. The other thing you can do is to find positive books and read with all your understanding abilities. What you are doing is to fill your mind with positive things. Note, that if thinking the way that you do could get you riches, you would already have been rich by now, it all starts with your thought processes.
KEEP MOVING, DON’T STOP!
Once you realize you need to change and once you make that decision to change and once you take that first step, don’t stop! Keep moving forward and forging ahead. The basic truth is that all success is built on past failure, so you may have failed; every successful person did have initial failures.
Successful people have failed over and over again, but, they just never quit. Try and ask a successful person, they will definitely tell you that they are successful because they failed more than the average person; every single one of them! You cannot succeed unless you fail. The reasonable thing to do to learn from your failures; we learn what not to do.
History has it that Thomas Edison failed ten thousand times before he found the proper filament for the light bulb. The key is that he never gave up! If you ever learn anything, please learn this, just don’t give up! Learn from your mistakes and keep advancing forward. When you fail, and you will pick yourself up, dust yourself off and keep going!
FIND A MENTOR OR A PROVEN SYSTEM.
A mentor and a proven system have everything laid out for you. A proven plan for you to follow. Common sense says to follow a proven plan/system that works and has been proven to be working. Why try to re-invent the wheel? Learn from someone else’s failure. This is where very many people who come into any industry fail; they want to do it their own way. When they fail, they get discouraged and claim that the system does not work and then they quit. Remember, learn from your mistakes, don’t quit, and keep on going. Success never rewards quitters!
Success is out there for those who get up each morning and make a conscious effort to move towards it. Work hard for it every day. Think about it every day! Want and desire it more than anything else. Remember, successful people didn’t get that way by accident. They made the necessary changes and sacrifices in their lives and also work hard for it every day. It’s waiting out there for you too! Make the decision today and become financially free.
