Do you have any friends or family members who have been tremendously successful in their lives and you find yourself wishing you could have the same? Are you full of envy towards people who have whatever they want?
Most of us feel these feelings from time to time, but rather than letting jealousy make you unhappy and negative, you can create your own success. After all, you are the only person who can control the way you define ‘success'.
So rather than spending your time feeling jealous, you can spend your time fulfilling your life successfully.
Build your own success.
Many people spend their lives wondering when success is going to magically appear on their lap but, of course, it never happens that way. If, instead, we spend less time dreaming and more time building, we would be much happier and success would be within reach.
Instead of passively waiting for success to carry you away, it's time to build your own version of success. When you take proactive actions on a daily basis, you are more likely to achieve your goals. After all, it is much more productive than looking at others achieving success.
A great way to create the successful life you have always hoped for is to set clear, achievable goals. How do you wish your life was defined? What are you going to do one year from now, five years from now, or even 10 years from now?
What specific goals can you set for yourself to motivate and stay in the right direction?
You will want to ensure that the targets you set are attainable. The best way to do so is to start with short-term goals that will help you meet your long-term goals. This will help you go ahead and gain momentum without getting discouraged. Besides, it will help you keep an eye on the prize. If you set overly ambitious goals, you'll be more likely to give up before you even begin.
Building a "Success!" Attitude
Your behavior and thoughts determine your success, so make sure they are consistent. If you have some negative or self-defeating inner dialogues, it will be much more difficult for you to achieve your goals and build the life of success you have always wanted. Therefore, it is a good idea to use the power of positive affirmations to move you forward.
Affirmations can help people from all walks of life achieve great success, even if they began in the lowest places below. Don't forget that success is not limited to the wealthy and famous!
Having a list of affirmations on hand can help you overcome those moments of doubt, envy, or even anger that you may feel toward others.
Affirmations are simple thoughts like, "Each simple, completed task propels me towards success," or, "I am worthy of great success." These affirmations help to remind you of what your goals are and, in turn, remind you that you are worthy of all you desire, and more!
