TIPS ON HOW TO BE A SUCCESSFUL PERSON

TIPS ON HOW TO BE A SUCCESSFUL PERSON


 



Success is a journey and not a destination. Knowing it is not a destination that you can just board a flight or bus and sleep unconcerned knowing that when you get to your destination you will be notified or called to highlight. So since it is a journey, you can’t be unconcerned because every step matters.  Here are some tips on how to ride on the journey of success.



1.       IDENTIFY WHO YOU ARE
 This is the first step to assuredly journey on the path of success. Most people live their lives without knowing who they are, they know their names and origin, but they do not know the strength that lies within them and who they could have become if they make good use of their strength. Knowing about our strength and weakness helps us to know where we can always get the best out of ourselves.



2.       MAKE REALISTIC PLAN FOR YOUR SUCCESS

Can everyone make plans? Yes. But does everyone make realistic plans? Maybe. Plans can only be actualised when they are real. You don’t draw a plan on how you want to score a goal in a match on the soccer pitch without being a member of any of the football teams that will play in the match; you are either among the football players or the coaching staffs before such plans can be brought into reality. So, be realistic in making plans.

“By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.” – Benjamin Franklin



3.    START WHERE YOU ARE AND USE WHAT YOU HAVE

It’s Okay to be scared when you have visions bigger than your present reality. Yes, it’s natural. But just start, start with the doubts.

“Don’t wait for something big to occur. Start where you are, with what you have, and that will always lead you into something great.” – Mary Manin Morrissey



4.     KEEP RECORDS OF THE PAST

Get a pen and a note; take notes of your achievement, failures and lessons garnered. Keeping records helps you to know the right way not to do past, activities, projects, assignments or anything the wrong way. It helps identify the strengths and weaknesses in your business.
