Create Success Wherever You Are

Success is different for every person, but at the end of the day it is all about who you are, and who you are becoming.  It’s about being the best version of you and achieving your goals and dreams. Your success will bring you a sense of accomplishment.

But too often than not though, we make a laundry list of goals and what we want to achieve in life, and the list remains on the nightstand or lies dormant in a notebook. Sadly, the words do not move from the page and success seems to elude us. Regardless of what success means to you, there are strategies for making your dreams a reality. Success is possible for all regardless of obstacles, challenges or setbacks, it Is possible.

Are there goals you want to reach?

If you answered Yes, then it’s time for you to take action and bust a move!

It’s time for your move both physically and spiritually. Whatever it is that you have been dying to do, now is the time to put one foot in front of the other and move. If you don’t move you will go to sleep and wake up another year from now in the same place. In other words – actively pursue your dreams and get into action.

Here is what you need to do right now!!

Write down your goals.  You need to write down in detail exactly what it is you want to achieve and what kind of life you want to live. To ensure that you do not set yourself up for failure, make the goals specific, measurable and hold yourself accountable. You do not have to do this alone, ask a friend, spouse or colleague to help you be accountable if need be and if that works for you. Remain open to possibilities, suggestions and support from others and be creative. Be careful not to shut yourself off to new ideas, new thinking, new challenges and new experiences. One never knows what opportunities may be waiting behind closed doors. Embrace all the “luck” that comes your way once you get into action. It is true that that Life rewards effort exponentially, no matter how small the effort or how challenging the obstacles. So, do not be afraid to visualize your highest goals and stay on a path of action to achieve them.

Here are some suggestions for setting goals

Set goals that are yours and not someone else’s dream for you. It may sound selfish, but it is essential to you following through. Before setting your goals, take time to look at your thoughts and beliefs. Self-awareness is the key to making the best choices.

Don’t just set goals that evolve around money.

Some key areas, in which you might consider writing your goals, if you have not already, include: family, spirituality, career, interests, lifestyle, financial, self-growth, health and well-being.

Give a plus to each of these areas you are happy with and a minus to each of the areas you are unhappy with at this present time. Choose one of the minus areas you are most unhappy with and make your beginning here. This is your first step to a happier and more successful YOU.

 “Success means having the courage, the determination and the will to become the person you believe you were meant to be.” George Sheehan

Never Give Up!!

This is such a beautiful and inspirational song, listen to it and let the words speak to you. As I head into the New Year today this song served as my reminder to Never Give Up on my dreams. I can’t belive that I have already came this far and I know 2010 is going to be a breakthrough year. I am excited about what God is going to do in my life. He always seems to surprise me.

One of my many dreams is to create financial wealth. I know this journey is going to have challenges but I have to remain focused and know that victory comes in time. I have to work hard today and the lay the foundation for tomorrow. I owe it to myself and most importantly I owe to my four girls who depend on me and they are my inspiration to move foward when it does seem impossible. I know I have what it takes and I am determined to be successful. I will Never Give Up!
