Have you heard that everything has its own principles, even there’s the principles of success! Regardless of your age, culture, gender or background, everyone have one crucial thing in common: we all want to be successful.

That is not to say that we all want the same things from or in life; what success actually means to one person will be completely different to another. In fact, what you may consider being a success act might be considered a failing act to another person. But as individuals trying to live up your greatest possible life, it is your own unique definition of success that is important, as this is your own way of making your story worth telling. For someone, success may be a lifetime of good strength. While for another, it could be having enough cash flowing in to enjoy a succession of expensive homes and cars. And, for someone else, it could be having a happy family. Whatever this means to you, it is important to remember that;

The real success is not just about realizing your ambitions. It is about how much drive, commitment, and belief you show on your journey there. If we were all to find success quickly and without difficulty every time we wanted something, we would never become truly ‘successful’. After all, it is about overcoming obstacles and discovering who you truly are.

And here’s the question, without the rough patches, how would you ever learn how to appreciate the smooth? Or discover what you are really capable of? I think everyone should want to become the greatest possible version of themselves.

Instead, we should be asking our children and ourselves not what do we want to do, but who do we want to be? The distance between ’What and Who’ is very clear – but these two are different things. Being prosperous is about living a life that you love – something you cannot do in a career that you hate. So, identify your passions in life. What bold mark do you want to leave on this world? Answer this and the rest will simply follow.

  1. Surround Yourself With Positive, Like-Minded People

You are only ever as good as the people that you surround yourself with. So, try to always keep yourself in the company of the good doers, fearless motivators, encouragers, creative-thinkers, supporters and successful people that cross your path. Who knows what part they may come to play in your success.

  1. Keep Your Eye On The Prize At All Times

Life is full of distractions and if you are not too careful, it can be all too easy to lose focus on what it is that you really want. Keep your goals right in front of your eyes at all times – don’t let anything distractive blind you to the beauty of the life that you are living now – but fuel the fires of these passions by talking, dreaming, thinking and visualizing them as often as you can.

  1. Never Complain About Things Unless You Intend To Do Something About It

Your role should never be a passive one – you are the creator of your world, so you need to be the one calling the shots. So, if you don’t like something? Change it! More complaints mean more stupidity. Stop wasting time to emphasize on your complaints, solve it and turn things around!

  1. Be Unique in your own Way

Your creativity and uniqueness are great resources that will make you successful – so embrace it! Too many of us will try to ‘fit in’ in order to play it safe and be comfortable. But becoming successful is about being at your most uncomfortable; if you are not experiencing any resistance then you are not living big enough.

  1. Become Self-Aware

When we become self-aware, we re-assume control of our life’s path. Negative thoughts create negative, unsuccessful people. Therefore, you must learn to block out the negative thoughts and fill your mind with positive, successful ones. Learn to do this and your life should immediately start changing for the better.

  1. Be Thankful for everything

When we stop for a moment and take note of what we already have in our lives, we are often surprised by the abundance of love and positivity that already surrounds us. Days that begins and ends with gratitude is guaranteed to be the good ones.
