Many people want to achieve success or want to be rich. But, they do not know how to achieve their dreams or how to start on their journey. They do not have the will to make the first step. Have you ever wondered what are the secrets are that separate successful people from those who are less succesful? I am going to share with you the 5 secrets that I found from my personal research. These are the secrets that are used by people to make it big in the world. These are their secrets of success.
Secret of Success #1 – Have Big Goals
Many successful people have big goals that they which to achieve in their life. Robert Kiyosaki’s goal is to bring financial literacy to world. The bigger the goals, the more they will motivate you to achieve them. If you have a clear vision of goals, you will be more motivated to achieve them. Often, in the process of finding the goals you will be able to learn more about yourself and find meaning in life. After you have decided which things that you really want to do or achive you must write these things down as specifically as possible. For example, if you want to get rich, just plainly stating “I want to get rich” is not good enough. You need to be as specific and clear as possible. For example do you want to become a multi-millionaire who owns some corporation?
Secret of Success #2 – Never Say Die When Faced with Adversities or Failures
Many rich people have encountered lots of failures before achieving their dreams or attaining enormous wealth. One example is Walt Disney. He was bankrupted a number of times before he finally built his first Disneyland. Robert Kiyosaki failed multiple times before his books achieved phenominal success. When you are facing difficulties, you need to use your beliefs and values to motivate you to overcome them. Only when you truly believe in your dreams and yourself, will you not be detered by adversities, and you will overcome the short challenges in your way to success.
Dr. John Gray, the world number 1 relationship author, uses a river journey towards the sea as analogy to highlight a person’s journey to success. He said that a river always encounters stones and rocks in its path to the sea. When the river encounters stones and rocks, it always splashes the water on them and stops. But, it will step back after the splashes and the water will turn around them to continue its journey towards the sea. So, be like the river, when you encounter failures, do not cry over them. Instead learn from your mistakes and move on towards your goals. You need to “burn your ships” and leave no room for retreat. When you throw yourself into the den with no other way to go but forward, you will have more hunger to succeed.
Secret of Success #3 – Have Mentors and develop a Mastermind group
Napolean Hill said that a mentor and a mastermind group is very important if a person is to attain riches. If you want to achieve success, you need to learn from mentors. Since birth, there are always mentors in your life to guide you. When you were a child learning to walk and you fell down, your parents and friends would always encourage you to stand up and walk again. In your journey to success, you need to have mentors to guide you along andkeep you inspired, motivated and passionate about your goals. Mentors can teach and guide you to towards your goals faster than you can do it alone. Mastermind groups, on the other hand, are strategic groups that are formed by people with common goals. When you form mastermind groups with equal minded people, the energy of the mastermind group can help you to ourcome obstacles easily and motivate you along the journey to success.
Secret of Success #4 – Have a Clear Plan and Priorities
Rome was not build in a day. Neither is personal success. Success requires a clear plan, clear priorities and commitment. You have to eliminate all the bad habits that could stop you from achieving your aims. You need to stop procastinating, eliminate excuses and be accountable for the things that you do. Remove distractions that stop you from reaching your goals by having measurable and specific goals that are specified precisely and clearly and in advance. Divide your the goals into sub-goals if they appear too big or impossible and set milestones and a timeline to achieve them. When you have a clear plan of how to achieve your goals, strive to attain them one by one. Eventually, success will come to you.
Secret of Success #5 – Leverage People and Systems
Many successful people are able to do more by leveraging others and systems. Paul Allen, the World’s 4th richest man, is able to go fishing and work much less hours than his business partner Bill Gates. This is because he able to leverage on Bill Gates to make more money for him. Leverage the knowledge of the masses to solve your daily problems. In today’s information age, the speed of information processsing is more important than the amount of information. It’s not how much information you know but how fast you learn them that determine whether we will succeed. Only when you know how and when to leverage others can you be able to move faster and see opportunities faster. They are now more millionaires in this century than the last because these people are able to leverage others and systems to make more money. One such system is the Internet. Google and yahoo were able to become multi-billon companies because there able to help people process and filter information with ease and faster. So, if there are some sound systems or processes that can do your job faster, use them. They will able to help you attain your goal faster and easier.
After having acquired some of the secrets of success, I hope you are motivated towards your journey to success. Find some time to do some soul-searching to find your big goals that you want to achieve in life. Only when you are highly motivated and passionate about the goals that you want to achieve, can you achieve them. Success is not just an achievement but more of a journey that has many lessons along the way!
