Creating Your Own Success
Success is something we all want to have happen in our lives and to be honest we really don’t want to wait for it. However, success isn’t a template that everyone can trace; it isn’t something that can be copied nor it is a straight and narrow path. Success looks different for each and everyone. And, if you want to create your own success, you have to do these three things:
Focus on the process not the end result
It's the process & progress that is more important. The challenges and obstacles that have to be taken to get where you want to be makes the end or the result worthwhile. Success isn't separate from the sacrifice + struggle needed to take to get there. It's all connected and threaded together. And it's the struggle that gets the most credit.
"Getting to the end isn't as interesting as it is getting through"
Identify the key steps to take
Before taking any steps, you have to first identify what those steps are. Anyone who has been successful in whatever they do, knows and understand they have to identify what is needed to get done first, to get where they want to be. You have to first visualize and formulate where you want to be & how you want to feel. Next, you have to identify what the major steps are that you need to take. If you are ready to start building your business, you have to figure out what that looks like & the type of business you want to create, and who you want to create the business for. With any goal or idea, in order to be successful in it, you have to figure out the important steps.
"When you emulate someone's path to success, you are devaluing your own potential"
There is a difference between taking advice from someone whose been successful & literally copying there every move to become successful. Your vision of success depends on many things: your purpose, what you value, who you want to help, your overall happiness, and more. What good can from from copying what Oprah did to reach success? Tyler Perry? Lisa Nichols? Although we all struggle, everyone's struggle looks different. And it's this difference that determines each and everyone's success. You have to figure out how to achieve success through your own struggle.
