What Is Success?

Success for you doesn”t necessarily means success for me. What is success for you, it might not be for somebody else, and that is all there is.

There is no destination for everything. Once you reach destination, you are not going to be more happy than you are now. You simply won”t. Look at success as a journey. There is no end to your goals. Once you reach your goals, you will want to reach some other, new goals. It is about the journey. It is about be, do and have better than yesterday. It is about growing and evolving every day.

What it is that you wanna achieve in the future? A stay at home mother of 5 and the one who is into career, can be equally happy. You need to define what success means to you.

Successful people are not going to talk about the success at last, but about the journey that they been through, challenges that they faced and they stood up, stronger than ever.

Success is not final; failure is not fatal: It is the courage to continue that counts.”

What are some signs that you will be successful in the future? You are super competitive. You know how to outwork everyone. You know the things, you know them in full.

Success is all about mental state. It is a state that you either feel or not feel successful. It is how you look at things.

I am sitting now at the airport waiting for my flight and I feel quite successful, even thought for some I might not look successful, I don”t have a house, car and all the exotic vacations, but I managed to be successful in all the undertakings.

There are the ways that you can discover what truly matters to you, and what success means for you. It is about asking yourself questions, powerful questions that will reveal who you truly are and what are your values.

Questions that you need to ask yourself in order to discover what success truly means to you are:

I am suggesting that you take a notebook or piece of paper and start writing your answers. Really, and truly, be honest with yourself, and write like there is no tomorrow. Be completely and utterly honest with yourself.

One more things that is really important is that you need to be specific. You can”t just say that you want happiness. You need to be clear to say what things you do to make you happy, with whom and where.

I will never forget when I asked a friend of mine a question related to her work. I wasn”t ask specific question, and guess what, I didn”t get specific answer, not the one that satisfied me, or answered to my question. The day I realized that I need to ask more specific questions, changed entire course of my life.

 “It is better to fail in originality than to succeed in imitation.”

— Herman Melville

There are many aspects of life that we need to manage well in order to find happiness, true fulfillment and success. We are body, mind and spirit and we need to feed all three in order to function well. It is the same with life. Just some of the life aspects are: work (your career), health (your physical health), learning (your personal development), social (your relationships with others), spiritual (your relationship with the greater power).

You need to find a way to feed all 5. If you are into spirituality and you are learning all about this, that wont bring you any good in your health or career.

What you get will never make you truly happy – who you become will. -Tony Robbins

I made a Youtube video about this topic, and I am really passionate about this because it is the thing that all should consider to think about it. We need to define what success means to us.

Success can mean: feeling that tingle of excitement about what you do, sticking with what matters through hard times, living a life you can feel proud of in retrospect.

Success provides confidence, security, a sense of well-being, the ability to contribute at a greater level, hope and leadership. Without success, you, the group, your company, your goals, dreams and even entire civilizations cease to survive.

Success can mean: feeling that tingle of excitement about what you do, sticking with what matters through hard times, living a life you can feel proud of in retrospect. These talks say it all.

There is a short video about success and what leads people to success. I highly recommend to watch this video. It is very short and fun. Here it is:

What will lead you to success is: Passion, Work, Focus, Persist, Ideas, Good, Push and Serve.

There is no success if you are not doing anything without passion. You need to be led by love and passion in order to feel and be successful. Work, work, work, nothing without work. I know! There is no easy way to success, but always hard work will guarantee you success. Focus! You need to keep the focus on what and why do you want it. People who have a laser focus to the goal that they wanna achieve never miss the target.

Persistence in everything is the key. To fail, but to stood up is the key to success. You are building confidence by that. Soon after you are realizing that a lion lies within you. Ideas, you gotta have ideas. You need to relax in order ideas to flow to you. Everything in life that you see now someone sometime had an idea in his mind.

You need to be good at it, and the only way to become good at something is practice, practice, practice. In the times that you feel down you need to find that last atom of the energy and push yourself to continue with your work. Serving people is the best and easiest way to get to the riches.

Treat Your Life As A Business Not A Hobby

In another words, treat everything in your life as a business, not a hobby, be as best as you can.

I”ve been through some free course now, about the making money online, and guy said that people are not succeeding because they are treating their businesses as a hobby, not a business.

I can relate to that, because I didn”t treat myself as well good enough. I didn”t treat my online business as seriously as I could. You know the saying: “What you put out comes back to you!” It is true! If you are not appreciating enough job that you do, business that you build, they are not going to appreciate you either.

Everything is in accordance of how much we give out. You need to put a things, money and effort in a state of flow. If you giving just half of what you really can, you are going to get half back, maybe even less. So treat yourself as a business, your business as a business, not a hobby, and your life will be a safe haven.

I like the quote very much that Jay Z once said: ” I’m not a ‘Business-Man’! I’m a Business… man! 

Do you like it too? We treat our possessions for granted, we treat ourselves for granted, our bodies, our parents, siblings, everything and everybody, and that”s what we get out as well.

Know, that all is within you, and that you can take your life, yourself and your business to the next level, but only if you will go full into it, immerse yourself into everything that you do, giving best of yourself, living the life of no regrets.

I am pumped up. I really am. I will never stop learning.

What are your thought about this? Taking full responsibility and taking everything seriously, but enjoying and believing in journey?

The Success Code

I will be now straightforward and tell you what is the code. The code for success is: “Own Your Life!” Own your life!!!

You see, nobody is gonna land on your property, and offer you help, see you struggling and feel sorry for you. They are living their lives, as best as they can. Know that you, and only you, have that magic stick in your hands and make things happen, but only, and if you believe in yourself. Believe in yourself! Believing in yourself will automatically get you doing the things towards success, by not believing in yourself, you are going to just dabble. Is that right or right?

Your habits and behaviors determines whether you are going to succeed in life and feel fulfilled, or living mediocre life and feel unhappy. You body posture, handshake, your voice, everything. Look around a little bit, and observe people, I believe that you could tell something about them just by observing them.

Focus on Listening

REALLY LISTEN

Really listen what they have to say. Just by listening people you are building trust. They”ve been heard. It is great feeling right? You would love as well if something is on your mind, go to someone and just talk, share your story being understood.

People put all kinds of barriers if they feel they are being sold to. Many professionals are developing a completely different approach to selling – sometimes described as a feminine approach – more listening, less broadcasting. I encourage people to learn to talk about what they”ve done with confidence but also with dignity. The difference is tremendous.

EYE CONTACT

Try different approaches when somebody shares a story with you. There is this one. Next time when they are going to talk with you, look at them deeply in their eyes, and really listen what they have to say, feel their feelings, concerns, or happy moments. Completely and totally immerse yourself to their story. At times things only happen when you look someone in the eye.

Think of friends or colleagues who have made interesting breakthroughs in the past year or two – exciting new clients, brilliant contacts, an engaging new job or work project. Ask them how the opportunity happened. Some will tell you that opportunities fell into their lap, or they were in the right place at the right time. You may feel your friends have talent or luck on their side, but other factors are also at play. Consciously or not, your friends did something different to move luck in their direction. They spent less time staring at screens, and more time in face to face conversations.

The best way to build trust is to sit down with someone and share time, small talk, refreshments, perhaps a meal.

Some of the most interesting emails begin “I read this and I thought of you…”

One of the best ways to be remembered is to ask for help.

SHOWING BEATS TELLING

There”s a huge difference someone telling you “I love you!” not doing anything about that, and saying “I love you!” and showing you how much you mean to them.

There”s a sound rule about talking about yourself: “show, don”t tell”, and it applies here. It”s better to give an example than state a fact. Stories are remembered longer than information, and good stories even longer. This is true for describing skills, but even more for personal values. Values are revealed by what you do, not how you describe yourself. Talk about what you”ve actually done rather than spouting abstract values

If I ask you now what are your dreams and desires, you might be telling me all of them, but are you doing something about that. If you don”t, do small steps today towards your dreams and desires, your future self will thank you for. Only that will hold you accountable, not just talking about your dreams.

Success Code

What is your success code? What do you think is crucial to feel and be successful? I wanna hear from you now.

I think everything counts., and when I mean everything, I really mean everything. Your environment, what you eat, where you go, who are your friends, what you do when nobody is watching you, what do you do in your spare time, how you take care about yourself, how you walk, how you talk, what you read, what you consume… Everything!

I am reading a lot lately. All the great achievers recommends to read a lot. I took their advice. I would rather stay at home and read a book, brainstorm ideas, than go with someone not worth my time. I guess I will never stop learning. I commit myself to that. This time I read a book called like this title “The Success Code” that I liked it so much.

Great thing that you can do while reading a book is being totally immersed in what you read, highlight the sentences that are interesting to you and taking notes.

More about how to effectively read a book I made in this video tutorial. Enjoy watching!

Mindset

What do you think? Is it a good mindset crucial to have a healthy relationships, business, to be good with parenting and school? I think proper mindset is a must have if you wanna live a happy and fulfilling life.

Now, you might be thinking what is mindset actually and how do you make a good one.

Your mindset is your collection of thoughts and beliefs that shape your thought habits.  And your thought habits affect how you think, what you feel, and what you do.  Your mind-set impacts how you make sense of the world, and how you make sense of you.

What are your beliefs about yourself and world? Do you think you can change your mindset over a time ans start believing in everything.

Now, I shared with you the paragraph about what Mindset is from the website called http://sourcesofinsight.com/what-is-mindset/

I bought this book a months ago. Book is by Carol S. Dweck, started to reading, but I stopped because I didn”t feel like it to continue, I wasn”t ready. Until I listened some speech that guy recommended this book and came to realization how I already have this book. I read this book like a drinking water, sip by sip, until the end.

I loved it.

Which mind-set do you have? Do you have a Fixed or Growth mindset. It is all about that. There are the one who will always see something bad in every situation, while people who have a Growth mindset are able to convert life”s setbacks into a future success.

Are you going to brag about your past situation that happened for you, talking about this in a bad way, or will you turn that into a fuel for making your life work no matter what? The choice is yours!

Students! Beautiful students. Getting ready for a real thing called life. But if you are not aware of your Mindset in a student years, it will be much harder you change your mind in a later years.

There are the ones that are trying to constantly in proving their ability, and the ones that are minding their own business, the ones that are just wanna learn. That”s why they are there, and that”s why we are here. To learn and grow. That is the difference between Fixed and Growth Mindset. I hope it is much clearer now for you.

Ask yourself: “Am I a learner or a non learner?!” Am I going to learn a lessons from every situation or will I just leave as it is, not doing anything about it.

Love relationships, or romantic relationships.

There are this couples that are encouraging each others and the one that are sabotaging each others. Ego is a good thing, but only if you are going to hold your ego under control. There are so many relationships that are couples competing with each others. If you decided to be with your partner, that should be a partnership, not a competition. Put your partner on a pedestal, make them feel perfect, worship them. There is no greater feeling than helping people, in this situation your partner, building that relationship for life.

If you are only doing things that are easy shame on you. Go through life doing for change a hard things. Give best of yourself, and if we are talking about relationships, give every day after day some more to your partner, it is worth.

If you think it”s very hard to build your abilities, it is, but one step at a time. You are able to change your abilities. You are able to do anything what you set your mind to. Work on your weaknesses. Change you Mindset – Change Your Life.

If you failed for example in something lately. By failing I mean you didn”t met your expectations, but after each failing you are one step closer to your success that you want to. “Failing” at something just means you have a lack of experiences and skills. Know where you failed, and work on it. Work on your skills. That so called “failures” can be a motivation for you, to sharpen your abilities and skills.

By what do you wanna be remembered? Do you wanna be remembered who has a positive mind, meaning Growth Mindset, or do you wanna be remembered as a just one in many and have a Fixed Mindset? There is a tremendous difference! Relax and plug yourself in learning mode, stop struggling and embrace your greatness.

Plug yourself on greatness, let go of the Fixed mindset and know that if you don”t know how to do something, achieve anything, doesn”t mean you cannot find out how to do that. There are so much sources, be resourceful, open your mind, and commit yourself to find a solution, no matter what, if you really want something. Where there is a will, there is a way!

People tend to put labels on everything. If they thing about someone how week this person is, they think that person will stay this way. If you are week, if you think of yourself as a week person, be honest with yourself, admit to yourself your true beliefs, and ask yourself is this what you really want, ask yourself do you wanna continue to be a “week” person. If your answer is not, commit to learning, one step a time do something that can strengthen you.

Don”t put a labels on something on someone. Know that that thing or person can change eventually if they really want to.

I remember a day when friend of mine asked me to complete a survey about the characters that people have, as she wanted to know in what group I belong. Before of that she talked about herself and the characteristics that she have in such a passion, like finally that defined her. That is not definite, nothing is definite. Everything can be changed in a matter of second.

I hope it became clearer to you now what mindset is and difference between Fixed and Growth Mindset. If you wanna learn more about Mindset I am warmly recommending this book called Mindset by Carol S. Dweck.

To your Growth mindset,

Cheers!
