Have a positive attitude; if you are negative person you will have a hard time moving out of mediocrity. The reason people are successful is they believe in themselves and believe they can achieve the things they are setting out to accomplish.
We have all heard the statement if you fail to plan, you are planning to fail. There is a lot of truth in this saying. Very few people will meander though life and end up being successful. You should decide on a goal and write it down. Put a reasonably time frame to achieve your goal. Let your mind think about your goal and set up a plan on obtaining your goal.
Writing down your goal is the first step, but you will never achieve your goal unless you take action. Your goal should have a plan, with small incremental step for achieving the goal you set. Look at you goal and plan on a regular basis.
Over come your fear
Don’t let fear keep you for taking action on your goal. Failure is only failure if you stop trying. Most successful people have set backs. What you consider failure, they consider a learning process. Successful people are not easily deterred.
Be determined, persistent and focused
If achieving success were easy, everyone would be successful. Stay focused on your goal, many people will say you can’t do this, don’t be dissuaded. Be determined to achieve your goals and don’t give up.
Successful people to not stride to be one in the crowd, this is the path to mediocrity. Stride to be different and to make a difference.
Analyze success and failure
Keep a diary and analyze things you did that resulted and a positive outcome and things that resulted in a negative outcome. What can you do differently to change or improve your outcome? Make the necessary adjustments.
Visualize a better you
Use visualization to envision the person, or actions you want to achieve. This technique will reinforce in your mind the belief of attainment and desire of what trying to accomplish. Use auto-suggestion to influence your subconscious mind.
