The Taste Of Success Intensifies The Drive To Achieve More

Take pride in everything you do, whether big or small. Keeping track of your various successes in life encourages repeat performances. You may succeed at overcoming anger when dealing with a child or coworker. Your success may entail resisting the urge to procrastinate, and focusing on the task. You may achieve a financial milestone, make room in your schedule for more family time, or get a great night’s sleep. Success is waiting around every corner. It doesn’t have to be based on fame or fortune

Track Achievements At Work

It’s great to be acknowledged at work. A public shout-out can drive greater dedication and achievement. However, you don’t have to wait for recognition to start feeling good about yourself. Idealist Careers recommends maintaining your own personal record of accomplishments. Even if you won’t be looking for another job any time soon, clearly articulating your impact at work can help you negotiate a raise and give you a sense of pride in your work. You can track challenges you helped resolve, concrete metrics, actions you took, or projects you headed. These victories can be logged in a journal, spreadsheet, or in the WorkSmartapp. Whenever you question your position in life, look over this reminder of your worth.

Raise The Bar On Your Workouts

You are your own rival when testing your physical endurance. Set and exceed your own standards. Train for races to give yourself a specific goal to work toward. Every time you surpass your previous running time record, raise the bar. Increase your weight reps or running distance by 10% once you have hit your milestone. Success will enliven your mind and soul. Enjoy the motivation from the feeling of winning.

Take Pride in Your Go-Getter Spirit

Invite challenges as they come. You have the ability to overcome them if you desire. Your drive to win amplifies with each hurdle you leap past. No one can stop you once you have the motivation and the thrill of achievement. Why stop when you were just getting started? Take on more to fill your life with greater triumphs and to learn just how resilient you can be.

Start The New Year By Developing A Keen Sense Of Individuality…

Doesn’t it feel great to have a unique personality? A clearly defined entity, different from others, helps you move forward with high confidence and pride. Individuals are not limited by the fears or judgments of others. They pave their own paths and contribute their great ideas to the world. Individuals live life with more joy. They know what they believe in and lead lives that are true to themselves. They understand the freedom offered by uniqueness. They know that a well-defined sense of self gives them the backbone to withstand criticism and bumps in the road. Only when you are true to yourself can you live with no regrets.

Experiences cultivate your personality and uniqueness

Brain researchers have discovered that individual experiences are what influences the development of new neurons, leading to measurable changes in the brain – in essence, individuality. Everything that happens to us -good or bad- shapes who we may become. Different personality traits and behaviors surface in response to challenges and changes faced in life. Who we are today may not be who we once were or who we will become. Accept that you are the unique byproduct of your experiences. While you cannot control every experience that you have in life, you can decide how to reflect upon your experiences and process them to form positive or negative neural pathways. You can also choose to seek out pleasant experiences that develop specific aptitudes, skills, interests, and qualities.

Respect the individuality of others

By the same token, you will take notice of character in others. You likely interact with many other people on a day-to-day basis. Some people may seem “odd” or a striking contrast to you. Give credit to others for the interesting viewpoints they provide to the discussion. Compliment others on their unique qualities. It is natural to look up to others, but avoid allowing the influence of others to sway your own personality, sense of style, or opinions. Sometimes, it’s all right to “agree to disagree” or to have two completely divergent views. If someone questions your actions, offer a respectful answer and justify your points with your own sense of individuality.

Respect the choices of others

Supportive family members and friends will love you for your strong-willed commitment and respect your choices, even if it makes them uncomfortable sometimes. Your actions relate to your past experiences, your unique interpretations of the present situation, and your beliefs about the future. Similarly, you should take care to respect the choices of others. You cannot know the totality of what they have experienced that has led them to their current crossroads. You do not understand all the emotions and beliefs that reside inside another person. Accept whatever choices made by others as an extension of their individual personalities, even if you do not understand or agree.

Persistence Pays Off… Right?

Self-control, perseverance, and grit are the most important predictors of success – even more than IQ or socioeconomic background. Thankfully, persistence is a quality that can be cultivated. It’s a decision that we make to stick with what we’re doing, no matter what.

Our ability to recover from setbacks is governed by our ability to engage with people who are different, control our actions, ask curious questions, and think positively. Completing goals fast is satisfying, but the sweetest victories are those we’ve worked hard to achieve and defined ourselves in the process.

Let the promise of the future motivate your success

The promise of the future is a powerful motivator for success. Focus on your “purpose” and your “mission statement” for strength. Emotions threaten to stop us dead in our tracks or deter us off the rails onto a different course. Sticking to principles and stated objectives will help you stay on your path.

The most persistent people have all-consuming visions of their future success. If you really want something, nothing can stand in the way of your powerful desires. Sometimes you may need to take a break to rebuild energy and strength, but never lose sight of that grand hope.

“Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.” – Jim Rohn

No matter how much you want something, staying continually motivated is difficult, especially when progress is slow. Developing habits is the best way to hack your way to the finish line. Certain habits help to motivate you for completing any task you set out to achieve.

Getting up early and going through a morning gratitude ritual gets your days off on the right foot. Putting in time doing at least one task related to your goal – even if it’s for less than an hour – keeps you constantly progressing. Surround yourself with motivators. Set up rewards when you hit milestones along the way to keep your enthusiasm up.

View challenges as opportunities to increase knowledge and skills

Learning from past mistakes is a way to remain positive and steadfast, despite obstacles. Reading stories of how others overcame challenges to succeed in the end can be a great source of inspiration and a helpful reminder that no life is perfect. Humans are highly adaptable.

You may need to alter your approach or wait a little longer for the payoff, but know that success is always within your grasp. The most persistent people know that life is a journey of dead-ends and detours. They know when to let go of ego and admit that something is not working. They are quick to incorporate new information and adapt to a better way.

Show Up

The phrase “show up” means more than just appearing physically, but appearing mentally as well. Putting in effort and being there emotionally for others are worthwhile endeavors in life that lead to greater success and more fulfilling relationships.

Showing up is particularly important in marriage and parenting. It is important to help others who are in need of emotional support, even if we feel we have nothing to say or contribute. The cumulative effect of your presence helps sustain a bond.

 “80 percent of success is showing up.” – Woody Allen

It takes great courage just to show up and be seen. There is a vulnerability in putting ourselves out into the world, among others, but we won’t find opportunity hiding beneath the blankets of our beds or lounging on our sofas.

You may not feel 100% prepared for every activity or situation in life, but you may find that once you get there and set to work, the energy and drive to work soon emerge. Even if you fall short of the success you crave, you are furthering your goals through practice and expanding your determination.

Give yourself credit for hard work and take pride in showing up, though it’s not always easy to do.

“Show up in every moment like you’re meant to be there.” – Marie Forleo 

Instead of looking at work, the gym, or another setting as “drudgery”, think of each moment as a piece of your destiny. Everything in your life was designed for you – whether it’s to learn a lesson, hone a skill, impart your wisdom upon others, or reveal a mystery.

Delight in the moment even if the benefit is not immediately clear. Find a way past inertia and enjoy the opportunity to problem-solve. Take pleasure in the moment, but also keep in mind the purpose of your hard work and your long-term goals. This will enable you to push through small obstacles with the bigger picture in mind.

“In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing. The worst thing you can do is nothing,” – Theodore Roosevelt 

Even if it feels safer to stay where you are, the decision to do nothing is still a decision with its own set of consequences. We cannot bury our heads in the sand and hope that conflicts will blow over and troubles will disappear. We are all responsible for the choices we make in life. If we take a false step, we can always work to rectify our mistakes.

Ferquent Conversation Stirs The Pot To Solve Problems

Have you ever heard the saying, “Two heads are better than one”? Frequent discussions with others can help us understand our surroundings and gain perspective. These conversations, with a friend or with a random stranger, pool ideas and thoughts that may be different from your own.

The Whole Is Greater Than The Sum Of Its Parts. – Aristotle

Exchanging ideas with others creates a broader – and better – perspective. Try to spend most of your time engaged in group discussions with your team, which provides better value than individual accomplishments. A company that works closely together, with all members of the team feeling valued and considered, has an unbreakable foundation and culture that will take your business far.

A willingness to consider Alternate views or perspectives Makes Me A Better Person.

No one wants to work with a person who is stubborn, negative, or inflexible. It is much more enjoyable to collaborate with someone who considers the best ideas and brings them together in exciting, new ways. Listening to others expands your circle of knowledge, creating better awareness. Opening your mind to others elevates your knowledge to a whole new level.

Variety Is The Spice Of Life That Gives It All Its Flavor. – William Cowper

What is the primary difference between the average individual who cooks just to eat, versus a master chef, who creates award-winning, world-renowned cuisine?

The masterful chef is willing to consider different seasonings, spices, recipes, and flavors to reach the final dish.

Some recipes are perfect as they are, but the same cannot be said for every recipe. No matter how many times you make a dish, if you follow the same recipe to its exact specifications, you will never grow in your understanding of the culinary arts.

If you never consider the ideas of others, you will never grow in your intelligence or emotional maturity.

You Really Can!

If you think you can’t accomplish a thing, or if you’re pessimistic, negative, discouraged, disappointed or always thinking that you can’t.. I’m here to tell you that you’re right… and you won’t! Most people with goals and dreams take council from friends, relatives, significant others, and co-workers that have never ever gotten out of the boat, much less walked on water….. So, why would you consider anything they have to say about your LIFE and what they believe you can’t do!

For example, would you take council on how to care for a parrot, from anyone that has never owned a parrot? Or, would you consider taking council from anyone on how to raise a teenager, when that person has never experienced that opportunity? Therefore, be very careful with whom you share your goals and dreams with. Or, if you choose to share, be prepared that the person you’re eager to share this dream with, may not be as excited about your dream as you want them to be! When this happens it can discourage and delay your efforts from ever getting out of the starting block!

Staring Block

Additionally, you may have to consider finding a network or a club (physical or virtual) of people that have similar goals to encourage you on how to get out of the starting block with vigor! Remember, when there is no RISK there is no REWARD!

Realistically, you may also need to consider disengaging a bit with those friends that have never accomplished any of their goals and dreams! Why? Because, if you continually listen to their rhetoric, rational and reasoning of why they never raised the bar on themselves, you too will be part of the problem! It’s been said, “if you are the smartest person in your circle of friends, you need a new circle of friends.”

Begin building-up your belief window by:
• Finding others that have similar goals and dreams and embrace a formidable accountability partner
• Schedule regular check-in’s with this network to build and strengthen your self-confidence
• Study to improve your knowledge-base and begin to build a road-map to reach your goals
• Take one step at a time and build your confidence one day at a time.
• Locate books and or DVD material to keep you inspired, encouraged and motivated to stay engaged with your dreams!
