We all have something we like to achieve in life, but thinking about it won’t make it happen. Now it does all start with the thought. There is even a mindfulness visualization exercise where you visualize what you want to happen in life, what it is, what is happening, what you are doing, even visualizing what your sensations, and feelings are. You can also add dialogue to it, and think about the positive changes it made.
Visualizing can be a powerful tool to get you on your way to success. Making it as realistic as possible can be a huge motivational factor. Now success isn’t everything, but being able to achieve, and accomplish the goals you like for yourself is very satisfying. This could bring much content into your life. We all want to be able to proud of the work we do.
So what are the things one can do to find success. Here are a couple of things I found that have been important to people’s success:
- Willing to get out of comfort zone
- Willing to fail
- Willing to put yourself out there
- See it as a marathon, not sprint
- Keep focusing on the end goal
- Take chances
- Make changes
These all don’t seem very easy, some can be quite difficult for some people. I find some of these difficult myself. But that is just how life works. You have to work harder for the things we want in life. You can choose comfort and safety, but that doesn’t always leave us feeling content and satisfied.
Now, I noticed one thing that was not mentioned, talent. You don’t necessarily have to have this quality to be successful. So if you are a talented individual. Try not to get down on yourself if you haven’t achieved what you would like, or haven’t got the recognition. It doesn’t mean you don’t have talent. It just takes more than that to get where you want to go.
You have to remember that everyone is talented in one, or the other, but there are many with similar talents as yours, so there has to be more that needs to be done to reach your goals. Telling yourself you are not talented, or good enough will just push you further from your goals, because you will not have the motivation to try the things that one needs to do to reach success.
