The secret to success

The secret to success in this life lies in finding your true purpose on earth.

Most times, people just go on in life, trying to become successful, but fail to achieve success. Why is this the case?

You see, most times, we are so much focused on what we want to get, that we forget to think about how we will get it.

Just like a building, construction can only occur when there is a plan. The same applies to our goals and dreams in life.

You need to have a plan on how you are going to achieve what you want to achieve in this world.

You cannot just let life direct your paths. You need to take charge of your life.

Most times we fail to achieve our goals and dreams, because we just relax and wait for life to give us the next level to explore. I.e we wait on fate.

But in order to get it right in this life, you need to be different. You must be different.

Every day you wake up, before you even begin the task of that day, ask yourself this question, what do I want to achieve today?

It may appear as an obvious question, but what it actually does, is that it prepares your mind to plan for the day ahead.

If possible, before you start your day, take a few minutes and write down what you want to achieve for that day.

This becomes a target which will guide your tasks for that day, as well as enable you to gain discipline.

At the end of every day, compare the list you prepared, against all the tasks that you achieved for that day.

This is the first step to success. Being able to plan, decide and actually do what you plan, this is where success begins.

With every new day that comes, try to go an extra step.

Be it in times of time spent working, tasks done, distance travelled or any other measure that you use. Being able to consistently improve on your results each time, is what leads to success.

Actually, if you were to ask the successful people, when they discovered they were successful, most of them just say, “I just found myself there”.

This is because success is a journey, not a destination. It keeps on coming. The only secret is that, you have to keep going.
