“So many people say they want to be successful, rich, famous, however the last thing in the world that they want is to get off the familiar treadmill and actually get somewhere.”
What is your perception regarding change? Do you become excited when you hear the word or are you frightened? A vast majority of humans almost become mentally paralyzed when they hear the word. For them change is the last thing they want because they are so used to how things are right now. The road to mediocrity is reached if you remain content with how your life is. If you settle there is not going to be any progression made and in return you will not become legendary instead you will reach mediocrity. If that is where you want to be, then fine. But for the rest of you, change and the ability to constantly change is essential for success.
By change I am referring to acquiring new beliefs, new trains of thought, new personas, new traits, doing new activities, hanging out with new people, travelling to new places, all this good stuff. If you continue to make constructive changes in your life and continue to improve and move towards your goals then how can you not capture them? The reason why people don’t reach their goals is because they lack the ability to make a change in their life. If they aren’t getting the results they want, they keep doing the same old tactic over and over again when it is clearly not working. The last thing on their mind is change. This is obviously the wrong way to go about things, life is all about progression and that progression is the result of making beneficial changes in our lives.
You need to ask yourself if the traits you have today are going to be the ones that are going to make you reach the top tomorrow. Be brutally honest, don’t deceive yourself. Success comes from your traits. After all, you are the one that is going to make yourself successful. Therefore, it is vital that you know if you currently have the necessary characteristics in order to make your dream become a reality. For many of you, you possess some of the traits, but you’re lacking other critical elements. Hence, since I’m not all about the bad news and leaving you down without giving you tips on how to get back up, allow me to teach you how you can become the right type of person that makes success inevitable.
In order for you to make the right types of changes, you first need to know what those changes are. As a result, you need to think about your dream, close your eyes and envision what the person who makes that dream a reality looks like, how does he/she behave, how does he/she think, how is his/her posture, how does he/she walk, how does he/she react to failure, how does he/she overcome obstacles, how does he/she handle adversity. By doing all this your mind will begin to form a picture of this person and the great part here is if you continuously perform this activity say on a daily basis, your mind will slowly begin to associate yourself to that person and will begin acting like them. It’s a really great way to become the person you need to be in order to reach your dreams and make some positive changes. The key is to imagine that person in the utmost detail, from their dress style to the way they move their body. If you want to speed-en up the process you should consciously direct your mind by applying what you saw with your mental creation to yourself.
Another way to make some changes is to think of yourself like a stock. A stock on the new york exchange. In order for the value of your stock to go up and stay increasing you need to make some positive changes that keep it sky high because at the end of the day the person with the most value, wins. So with that said, here is one simple tip that anyone can apply to increase their value drastically.
From now on, start becoming aware of the people that you admire. Your daily activities are filled with interactions from people, some of these people you probably like and others not so much. I need you to focus on the people that you like and want to be around and ask yourself what qualities does this person have that makes me like them so much. After you have analyzed them for a bit and got your answer, the next step is to apply that same quality to yourself. For instance, say you are really drawn to a person because they have no fear of what others think of them, well after you have pinpointed this then you need to make a conscious effort to apply that trait to your life. It’s going to take some effort to apply, but the benefits are extraordinary. This is one of the ways in which you can build yourself up to become the definition of the word ‘successful’, every person you meet that you have an admiration for, you should take something positive away from them and apply it to yourself. If you continue to do this you will build yourself up with all of the traits that are needed to become successful and in no time success will be waiting at your front door (after working hard for it, obviously).
With that states, to get you off and running below are some of the traits that I have observed from other successful people that you might want to apply to yourself.
