Can Anyone Be Successful And Achieve What They Want In Life?

be successful

When it comes to living a successful life, everyone wants a piece of it. Nobody wants to live a mediocre and lousy life.

I believe that we all wanted to be successful, to reach our goals and to live our dreams.

However, not everyone is living the life that they want at this moment. Does success meant for everyone?

My answer is a big YES. Anyone can be successful if they are 100% committed and determined.

So what makes the majority of people living an ordinary life instead of an extraordinary one? This is exactly what you are going to discover here.

I will share with you the 5 essential characteristics you must possess if you want to be successful.

Successful people are successful because they think, they act and they respond differently.

You must be like them, learn their thinking, their habits, and their responses and adopt their characteristics if you want their results.

So here are the 5 characteristics you must adopt…

1. Be Absolutely Clear With What You Want

You must be absolutely clear with what you want in life before you can achieve it. Most people are not accomplishing amazing result because they are not clear with what they want.

Most people will tell you they want to earn more money, they want to be happy or they want to be more successful, but these are too general and vague.

In order for you to produce a remarkable result, you must have a crystal clear vision and your own definition of success.

When you say you want to earn more money, how much, by when and how are you going to make it?

Vague goals will produce vague results. When you are clear with what you want to accomplish in life, you can then come up with a plan to achieve it.

Your mind will focus on it and come up with strategies for you to act on. So stop being vague and start having clarity with what you want.

Here’s what you can do:

Take out a piece of paper and write down your definition of success. What has to happen for you to feel successful? And write down what you want to accomplish in your life.

Remember, be as specific as possible. You can write down whatever you want as long as you are clear with it; be it long-term or short-term.

2. Always Be Willing To Learn

Do you know that successful people are great learners? They are committed to constant and never-ending improvement.

Why do you think Lionel Messi is so good with his football skill? In one of his advertisement with Adidas, he said, “It took me 17 years and 114 days to become an overnight success.”

Messi has trained hard and keep improving his skills for years. The same goes for Michael Jordan. He used to train every single day to improve his skills and become the best.

What about you? Did you train every single day to improve your skill and become the best in what you do?

If you are in sales, be the best in your industry. Learn from other top sales and improve your selling skills every day.

If you want to be a writer or a blogger, then you have to type every single day. Learn your writing skills and learn from other successful writers as well.

If you want to be financially free with investing in the stock market, then read books and learn from others who have done so.

There is no way you can become the best without learning. You must commit to it and improve what you do to become the master of your craft.

Here’s what you can do:

Commit to reading at least 30 minutes each day. You can read a book or any online articles. There are many books that can help and improve what you do, read them.

If you need training, train every single day. Do not stop and do not skip any training day. This is the price you need to pay to be successful.

3. Becoming Proactive

This is the only way to get the results you want in life. If you want to be successful, take action. If you want to be rich, take action. If you want to be in a relationship, take action.

Understand that action is the bridge connecting what you want and your reality. And to close the gap, you must act and take action.

Most people are not taking enough action, which is why they are not producing the outcomes that they desire.

Ask yourself right now, do you deserve to your goals and your dreams? Do you take action enough to be the person you want to be?

Extraordinary people are proactive and they make things happen instead of waiting for things to happen.

On the other hand, reactive people wait for things to happen. They wait for their boss to tell them what to do. They wait for money to fall from the sky. They wait for their winning lottery numbers to show on the TV so that they can become an overnight millionaire.

Success only goes to people who act and work on it. If you want to live the life you want, you have to work on it, take action and make it happen.

Do not wait and do nothing. Success will not fall from the sky or appear in your pocket for no reason.

Well, maybe success will fall from the sky if you are lucky, but do you know that to boost your luck, you need to work on it? The harder you work, the luckier you get.

Here’s what you can do:

Take 5 small actions that will move you toward your dreams and your goals each day. And within a year, you will have accomplished 1825 small victories.

These small victories will accumulate and transform your life. Thus, commit to taking small actions each day.

4. Believe In What You Want

Do you believe that your dreams are possible? Do you think you can reach your goals?

If you want to achieve success, you must first believe that it is possible. Napoleon Hill once said:

“Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve.”

You have identified what you want in life, now you have to believe in it. If you do not believe in your dreams, nobody else would.

When you think that it possible to achieve something, the possibility for you to act on it will be higher.

Would you jump down from an airplane with a parachute on your back? Well, if you believe the parachute will work, you might jump if you are not afraid. The thing is that you will never jump if you do not believe that your parachute will work.

Therefore, when you believe something is possible, you will tap into your potential to reach it. Whether you reach it or not is a totally different story.

The key is that you will act and try your best when you believe it is possible. This is why you must think that your dreams and your goals are possible.

You must be able to feel what you want and imagine them in your mind at every moment.

Here’s what you can do:

Always believe in yourself and what you want to accomplish. Practice the possibility thinking and believe that it is possible for you to reach your goals.

Study other successful people who have achieved what you want. The more you learn from people who have made it, the more convinced you will be that you can achieve it as well.

5. Be Determined And Committed

This is another characteristic you must adopt if you want to be successful. Always be determined with what you want and get ready to pour in your 100% commitment.

Success will not come easy. If it is easy, everyone would have accomplished it. And because it is not easy, everyone wants it and that will make you so special.

You must always be determined with what you desire in life. Are you going to quit or give up easily when you face rejections and setbacks?

Extraordinary people never give up on their dreams, they persist until they get what they want, and this is why they are extraordinary.

At the same time, are you 100% committed toward what you want? Do you act on what you want or you just say what you want but never do?

Remember, you are what you do and not what you say you will do.

You must walk the walk and pour in the commitment to do it. People who are committed will do whatever it takes to reach their goals.

They are willing to give up sleep, wake up early, work harder, stay later, sacrifice their weekends and leisure time just because they are committed to their dreams.

Are you willing to do so? Will you be determined and committed and do what it takes as well?

Here’s what you can do:

Keep the promise you make to yourself. When you say you are going to take action tonight, do it. Do not procrastinate and do not end up watching TV or checking Facebook.

Say as you mean it and be committed. If you decided to wake up early, do it. Set as many alarms as possible and get up without hitting the snooze button.

Be determined, be bold and be committed.
