LIFE SECRETS #1 Secret to Success: Start where you are…
No matter where you are in your current situation, you can and will get to where you want to be if you keep persisting and keep faith. If you want to know the best secret to move forward into your success, is to make the best of right now by starting where you are. Start where you are, use what you have, do what you can.
Making the best of now sets you up for the next.
So for example, if you are in a job that you don’t like and don’t want to be doing, make conscious effort to put 100% into it, learn everything you can and more, aim to be the best at whatever it is. Even if you don’t want to do this as a career, developing this habit will mentally prepare you and set you up for the next moment! Robert Kiyosaki in the book Rich Dad Poor Dad, he says to choose a job that you can learn from, that will benefit your future, rather than choosing a job for money. Live your life feeling good and see the positive aspects rather than wishing you were somewhere else. Each moment and second of your life is precious and right now is the stepping stone to the direction you want to go in.
“Taking an interest in your work, enjoying what you are doing opens the secret door of success.”
Start with the end in mind
To really make the most of your life, begin with the end in mind. In Stephen Covey’s book & 7 Habits Of Highly Effective People, he does a visualization exercise, where you imagine walking to the funeral of a loved one and seeing all of their faces. Now 3 years later, it’s yours. Everyone there is at the funeral for you. What would you want the people to say about you? What kind of person were you? A Friend? A Partner? Family? What character would you like them to see in you? What would you want them to remember? Look at your life as complete first and think of the bigger picture, then your behavior can be adjusted to align with what matters most to you. You can then make better choices and each day will become more meaningful to the vision of your life and time will be spent wisely. You see the bigger picture always, that this is your life. The gossip and the working harder for something you don’t love may not really be what you want.
Never Give Up
Most people give up just before something big is coming to them. You can never fail if you never quit.
Practice living what you want to experience
Put yourself in the situation of what you want your life to be, go to places where people are doing what you want to do, read about people who have achieved what you want and go and practice it, go and test to see what it would be like to live that.
“Opportunity dances with those already on the dance floor.”
Small steps each day
Take the first step even if you don’t know where you are going. Once you start, the rest will come!
“You don’t need to be great to start, but you need to start to be great.”
