The reading of success literature, which we also call inspirational or motivational literature, listening to it on audio or watching videos of it, is a worthwhile habit which I strongly recommend.
It is invigorating, and heightens your awareness of the principles of success.
This habit has been of immense benefit to me. Many top achievers attest to this also; and their achievements lend credence to it.
There are many people who, sadly, still live under the illusion that success is either predetermined, or dependent on luck.
Nothing could be more farfetched.
Success is always a consequence of the respect of the principles of success; one of which is making right choices.
Right choices are never made haphazardly. They are usually the result of correct information, and clear thinking.
I have been listening to some icons on how they found their way to the top.
Their stories are not only thrilling, but also edifying.
The need to make right choices or right decisions keeps topping the chart of their list of success principles.
I have read many odysseys of people from obscure backgrounds to triumph, and I bet, always they enliven my spirits beyond the ordinary; and what I get away with all the times is the choices we make, which is the same as the decisions we make, are highly determinative of our success..
You have to take time to learn how to take sound decisions or make right choices in life.
Another requirement for noteworthy success which from every indication escapes many people struggling to succeed is the need for a sponsor.
When you have someone who backs and guides you, success becomes a certainty. All on your own, it is always much harder.
My advice to anyone in search of success is to make learning a must and a continuous process. Keep learning how to better do whatever you want to do.
Not long ago, I took an online course on digital graphics design and it has enhanced my work. Without it, I would still be trailing far behind in many ways.
An error that is commonly made, is wanting to have what we want here and now. It doesn’t work that way. Why? Because as one luminary of the science of success asserts, nothing worth while is accomplished easily in life. If that were possible, everybody would be an achiever.
Success demands that you invest time to study your project, plan it, and meticulously execute your plan. Even then, that does not guarantee automatic success. You may still fail and try a second, a third and a fourth time before you can make it .
The journey to success, especially to eminence is challenging but it can also be thrilling if you have the right attitude.
Whatever the challenges, never lose sight of the inspiring words of the man whose teachers dismissed as a dunce but who defied all the odds to become a timeless historical figure.
Among the enlivening lessons Winston Churchill taught us and future generations was, “Never, never, never give up!”
