There are many exciting elements to success but success also comes at a price. A price you need to be prepared to pay if you are to lead the type of life you really want-a successful life.
Outwardly it appears that success comes to a chosen few and that luck plays a large part in it. However the reality is that luck has little to do with it. What may be hidden is the level of persistence, failure, sacrifice, disappointment, discipline, hard work and dedication that resulted in success.
Each successful person was crystal clear on what their vision was for their life and they then objectified this vision into a series of goals.
Their drive and passion kept their goals always in mind and they kept moving forward taking steps to achieve these goals knowing they brought them closer to the ultimate goal-success.
Of course success means different things to different people but how they go about it really is the same.
In goals setting, some goals were easier to attain and others required much effort. Some goals set may appear like a dream to achieve but for each goal attained, the likelihood of achieving even outlandish goals seem more attainable. Start small but dream big!
Each successful person has laser focus and what they focus on is so selective, it is like tunnel vision and they apply themselves with one hundred percent effort.
They don't wait for things to happen to them. Combined with action and determination it is easier to keep the momentum going.

Yes, the way you think directs your thoughts and this in turn creates action-inspired action.
Fear blocks our decisions and renders us unable to discern anything. Fear is just another stepping stone for successful people. They persevere.
Don't place limits on yourself. Every journey begins with a single step. This is how every successful person started off.
"There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work and learning from failure" - Colin Powell
Your decisions are important. They can have powerful consequences. All successful people are risk takers but they take calculated risk.
Stretch yourself then stretch some more.Success is never far away and is never out of reach. Success is attainable.
Whatever makes you happy in life is the key to your success. Successful people love what they do and it brings out the best in them.
