What are the components of success? Let’s explore them now and help you get one step (or many steps) closer to your goal of financial freedom.
- People skills
- Ability to take action
- Ability to finish a task once started (productivity)
I often hear people telling me that they don’t seem to be able to make real connections with others in the course of their business activities and therefore miss out on some golden opportunities. I always advise that they learn to manage their moods. The reality is that every mood seeks companionship. Just as misery loves company, cheerful and enthusiastic people want to associate with other upbeat people. If you are unable to match your energy with the energy of the person you’re speaking with, chances are they will not choose to do business with you.
Where is your energy going? Every day, many people find themselves without adequate energy to carry on with their objectives. Some resort to drugs, alcohol, vitamins, etc. in the hope to reenergize themselves and achieve at peak levels.
Clearly, good natural supplements are helpful, but they won’t create miracles. The truth is that we can only succeed in life when we are creating. Creativity is our inherent state. It has been bestowed upon us by the Prime Creator, Life Force, Nature, God, whatever you prefer to call it.
“Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution.” - Albert Einstein
As you develop your imagining abilities, you will undoubtedly cultivate and augment your skills in observing things more clearly. You will see beyond the mere appearances and are able to materialize your goals.
Our doubts are our traitors
And make us lose the good we oft might win
By fearing to attempt.
Too often we fail to act for the fear of failure. By failing to act we are acting to fail. Success is not doing the extraordinary things; it's rather doing the ordinary things extraordinarily well. The fact is that success can only be achieved when we have a clear vision toward which we are moving one step at a time. All one needs to do is to take action, no matter how small, toward that ultimate goal with consistent effort. You just do your things and step aside.
