I Just Realized The Top Four Proven Truths About Success

Published

on

Apart from working hard towards having a successful life, I love studying success because I always want to know what it takes to be successful. Furthermore, I study success to check if successful people faced the same challenges I’m facing.

One thing I learned from my journey and studying success is that achieving success is tough. Besides this, I also realized the four PROVEN truths about success.

  1. Personal Development is Essential for Success

Not all successful people went through personal development before they succeeded. However, most of them agree that they read and listened to personal development books and tapes. For example, Sara Blakely (Net worth – $ 1.03 Billion) revealed that she loved listening to Wayne Dyer’s personal development tapes.

Personal Development leads to success because it results in self-knowledge, self-awareness, the identification and development of talents, self-confidence, and a positive mindset. Besides this, it enables individuals to know what success requires from them hence making the journey shorter.

Personal Development is a Major Time Saver. The Better You Become, the Less Time it Takes to Achieve Your Goals.’ – Brian Tracy.

‘Growth is the great separator between those who succeed and those who don’t. When I see a person beginning to separate themselves from the pack, it’s because of personal development.’ – John Maxwell.

  1. Mentors Make The Journey Easier and Shorter

Mentors make the journey easier and shorter because they enable you to realize what you have to do to meet success. For this reason, it’s hard to make mistakes when you have a mentor.

As an aspiring blogger and author, I realized that my journey is a little bit tougher because I lack a mentor. It dawned on me that I have to look for a mentor so that he/she can guide me on how to make my blog successful because I waste a lot of time trying to pinpoint the best tactics for growing my blog.

Besides this, I also realized that I needed a mentor after knowing that many successful people had individuals who guided them on their journey to greatness. For instance, Warren Buffet (Networth – $ 82.6 Billion) was mentored by Benjamin Graham, Tony Robbins (Net worth $ 480 Million) was mentored by Jim Rohn, who was mentored by Earl Shoaff.

  1. It Might Take Long Before We Meet Success

After reading biographies of successful people in various careers, I realized that it takes 4 to 10 years of hard work for one to meet success. For some, it takes a short period of time, but to most, it takes long before they see the first signs of success.

Therefore, as go-getters, we must not expect to meet success as soon as we start chasing our dreams. However, we must realize that success will eventually arrive if we’ll never quit. One thing I also realized is that all the people who wanted to succeed, and worked towards success, eventually succeeded. That being the case, we just have to be patient and confident that we’ll meet success.

The best way to be patient and to persevere when our success seems to take long is to forget about the outcome for a while and focus on improving our skills and providing immense value through our work.

  1. Mistakes are Part of the Journey

No one starts as an expert, and therefore be ready to make hundreds of mistakes on the journey to greatness. Mistakes are unavoidable because the journey is mostly based on trial and error as we never know the exact path to success.

For this reason, at some point in your journey, you will realize that you’ve been doing things the wrong way. Don’t beat yourself up; mistakes are part of the journey.

Recently, when I decided to read my posts, I realized that they had several mistakes. My English is poor, and some of my posts lack good sentence flow. I don’t regret making these mistakes because they make me eager to learn more about writing. Also, I understand that every successful person made mistakes on his journey. However, I’m working on making me a better writer.

Listen to Beyonce’s advice on making  mistakes.

Concluding Remarks

Therefore, we must always strive to learn from our mistakes and avoid being angry at ourselves when we make them. Mistakes are part of the journey, and we grow from them.

Besides this, we must embrace personal development, and strive to find a mentor who will guide us towards our final destination.

Finally, we have to be aware that success might take longer than we expect, and for this reason, we must practice loving the journey and forgetting about the outcome.

5 Powerful Success Lessons We Can Learn From Benjamin Franklin

Published

on

I admire Benjamin Franklin because he succeeded in many fields. He was a successful politician, author, inventor, scientist and printer. He was also one of the founding fathers of America. I always wonder how he managed to achieve success in numerous fields. For this reason, I studied his life to realize his secrets of success.

After studying his life for a while, I realized powerful success lessons we can learn from this Great Man.

1.Read, Read and Read.

‘From a child I was fond of reading, and all the little money that came into my hands was ever laid out in books.’ – Benjamin Franklin

Many successful people believe that reading breeds success because it leads to the accumulation of knowledge useful for succeeding. Maybe Benjamin Franklin knew this because he read a lot. He loved reading so much that he read his father’s religious texts because they were the main books his father possessed. His obsession with reading forced his father, Josiah Franklin, to apprentice him to a printer. Many scholars agree that his reading habit played a great role in making him a great man.

2.Never Ever Wait For The Right Moment

If you want to do something, do it. Never wait for the universe to perfectly arrange things for you before you take action.

In 1721, Benjamin Franklin’s brother founded a newspaper. Benjamin Franklin became highly interested in participating in the newspaper, but he believed his position would prevent his brother from allowing him to write. However, instead of waiting for his brother’s permission, he wrote letters and anonymously placed them in his brother’s print shop. People liked the letters so much that they wanted to know him.

Benjamin Franklin never waited for the right moment. He took action when he had an idea and his audacity paid off.

3.Associate With People With Similar Interests

You can progress quickly if you associate with people with similar interests because these folks will help you learn a lot about your field.

Benjamin Franklin knew this principle because he formed an association of aspiring artists and entrepreneurs when he was 21 years old. The association enabled Benjamin to become a better artist and businessman as its members regularly discussed about art and business.

4.Failure is Inevitable

All successful people including Benjamin Franklin failed on their way to success. Despite becoming one of America’s founding fathers, some of Benjamin Franklin’s political proposals were ignored. Furthermore, despite becoming a well-known author, some of his publications failed.

Benjamin Franklin understood that failure is part of success, and he continued writing and formulating more political proposals. He eventually became a successful politician and author.

5.Work, Work and Work

It’s said that Benjamin Franklin was obsessed with work. His biography reveals how he woke up early to work long hours. Besides this, some of his famous quotes such as ‘laziness makes things difficult, and hard work makes things easier’ proved he believed in a strong work-ethic.

Benjamin Franklin knew that his strong work-ethic played a huge role in making him succeed. In his famous essay, The Way to Wealth, he wrote, ‘If You Are Hardworking, You Will Never Starve.’

Conclusion

Just like other successful folks, Franklin was an ordinary individual who adopted the features of successful people. We can also adopt these features to guarantee a marvelous future.

5 Unbelievable Factors That Make People Work Extremely Hard

Published

on

Mentors, a strong purpose, and motivational stuff are some of the main factors that make people work extremely hard. However, there are other unique but not necessarily positive factors that make people work extremely hard.

Here are some of them:

  1. The Desire to Prove People Wrong

Many people have worked extremely hard because they wanted to prove the naysayers wrong. These folks wanted to show the people who doubted them that they can achieve greatness.

An example is Arnold Schwarzenegger. This guy worked extremely hard in his acting career because he wanted to prove wrong the people who told him that he won’t be a successful actor since he had a German accent, and a body that was too big for acting.

  1. Competition

Even though I have discouraged competition in my previous posts, I believe that it sometimes makes people work hard. Many bloggers, musicians, and business owners have worked hard because of the fierce competition in their niches. These folks knew that they would fail to secure a sizeable market share if their competitors outworked them.

  1. Faith

A large percentage of successful people succeeded because they had faith in their dreams. Faith made them completely sure that they’ll achieve their dreams if they worked harder, and therefore, it motivated them to work hard.

Recently, I realized that people who believe in the achievement of their dreams work harder than doubters. Doubt drains energy while faith motivates you to push yourself harder because you firmly know that success will come if you toil.

  1. Pain

People also work harder towards their goals if they believe that achieving them will eliminate pain. For instance, the pain of living in poverty motivated Eminem to work extremely hard towards a better life. In some of his songs, the rapper reveals how the pain he felt when he realized that his 9-5 salary could not sustain his family forced him to work very hard in music.

All the pain inside amplified by the fact that I can’t get by with my 9-5, and I can’t provide the right type of life for my family – Eminem, Lose Yourself

  1. The Need to Use Success As Revenge

“Success is the best revenge to pay you back.” – Eminem, Where I’m At.

I know people who are working so hard because they experienced rejection. These folks believe that working harder will make them meet success and make the people who rejected them regret.

Conclusion

Besides faith, the above factors show that you can use negative states of mind to push yourself harder. The main reason we are encouraged to use positive factors to push ourselves harder is that most of the time, factors such as pain, competition, the need to revenge and prove people wrong, work against us. These factors can be advantageous only if you approach them wisely.

What other unique factors do you know that can make people work harder?
