Do you think that all wealthy people are successful?
Success is more than just making money. Money makes life comfortable, no doubt. Money also gives you the opportunity to contribute to worthy causes (it's hard to help the poor if you are one of them)! But that's not all there is to being successful.
Success is when we reach for the highest that is within us and give the very best that we have. It is in the doing and not the getting.
Success is not in the accumulation of riches and resources and doesn't bring happiness. It is in the steps you take, and the attempts you make along the way.
Step 1: Accept Life As It Is
Life is a journey - accept this even with all the challenges that come your way. Save yourself a lot of energy by embracing this first step.
Step 2: Adapt To Life
Successful people don't complain and whine, but keep a positive attitude towards life. Ever notice how draining it is when you are around someone who constantly complains?
Everyone can have a 'woe is me' story at some point in their life, but it's the way you adapt to life that will make a big difference for you.
Step 3: Accept Responsibility For What Is Happening In Your Life
Take full responsibility for your life choices. Always look for the good in your life and in others.
Say YES to life! Don't close yourself off from opportunity. Embrace and explore them!
Step 4: Expect Positive
Do you know someone who always looks for the negative? If that is what you look for, that is what you will get. You will find what you are looking for, so look for the positive.
Focus on positive relationships in both your personal and professional life. Make it a habit of bringing out the best in others so they can be the best they can be.
Step 5: Have A Direction And Purpose In Your Life
Successful people know where they are going. They set goals, accomplish them and then set more goals. They are never bored, but always looking for new experiences. See the world as a sea of opportunity!
There is no line between success in your personal and professional life. Success is the one standard for your whole life. As you understand the difference between existing and living you will enjoy life to the fullest.
Always choose living and you will have success.
