What is Success
You might have your own definition of success. For you, it might be the shiny new car, the large house, the exotic holidays….but how do you achieve these things? How do you become successful? The road to success in anything you do isn’t an easy path but it really isn’t rocket science either!
There are formulas or patterns that the most successful people in life use and the most critical is quite simple…
Focus your attention on what YOU are doing!
Do this with a clear mind.
Engage your emotions – connect with your purpose.
NOTE; Purpose IS NOT found on social media, or on the (vile) Kardashian and Co shows..ok:)
Your purpose is innate in you, and you find it only when you go interact with the world and listen to the unspoken whispers life speaks to you.
You must do these things without the interruption or change of focus on what others around you might be doing. You must ignore the noise, the chatter, the people who are just hangers on… their issues, in order to truly focus on your purpose. I know how it sounds. but you can live like the masses or live like the few- its always your choice.
Like me with each of my children in turn, I focused on them individually (and still do!), despite the collective we make as a family unit and any external influences that might shake the balance. You have to ‘turn on’ a similar instinct (become that lion or lioness with your business!) when on the path to success. You must not be deterred along the way.
Fun Facts about how I decluttered my world for success;
- I have not had TV at my house since the year 2001
- I am not on social media- my staff manage it.
- I removed all toxic people from my life, completely.
- I cancel on nonsense social gatherings, I only show up if it matters to me- after the initial shock people get use to it
- I focus my time on my dearest and nearest and only do the stuff I love, my fam, the friends that have my back, my dogs, nature & travel.
- I don’t lie about things ever, if it offends you…thats ok, its a great way to filter out…
People will try to pull you in different directions but like a guided missile, you need to continue the same flight path until you reach your destination…keep that target in your sight at all times!
Firstly, you need to have a clear vision of direction.
Secondly, you need to create your clear target – S P E L L it out – what exactly and precisely, are you aiming for?
Lastly – STAY FOCUSSED!!! People who are successful do not deviate from their mission. Look at the space landings or medicine…they all start with a CLEAR, PRECISE, ACCURATE and TIMELY goal.
Is it easy to ignore what other people around you are doing, what advice and help they think they are providing? No. It’s not. We are more likely to gravitate towards our friends or family, who mean extremely well and want nothing but the best for us BUT look at them first (nicely and smile of course!)… are they the picture of success that you want to achieve? if the answer is no. then thats your answer….
Be very careful of comparing yourself to others…. Social media is something that allows us to view others highlights in life but yet we only see those highlights, we don’t see what hard work has resulted in those highlights. It’s a developing problem! Some have named it Social Media Envy (SME)!
Getting wrapped up in social media just leads to way too much negative emotion…. I don’t go on those exotic holidays; I haven’t got the flashy car or house…and on it goes….until you’ve become consumed by others lives!
There are studies that prove how negative Social media is…
Don’t let this happen to you! All negative emotions, particularly that of ‘keeping up with the Jones’ is what WILL prevent your attempts at successfulness. It is destructive, it intensifies your feelings of failure… before you’ve even begun really. Become a master at spotting this negativity and get rid of it before it takes hold.
You have to, no, MUST, ABSOLUTELY focus on you, what you are doing, what you want to achieve… ignore what anyone else is doing. Concentrate!! Don’t compare yourself to ANYone….. keep on that pathway… your pathway….remember…. it’s that simple concept… put everything you know into action so you achieve YOUR success.
Make this simple rule your mantra, practice, practice, practice and then when you think you have mastered it…. practice some more! You will develop behaviours that drive you forward on that successful path. You will grow brain memory of these behaviours… a bit like Pavlov’s dogs (look the experiment up)… you’ll soon know which thought to feed!
Look, most people don’t want to read how to be successful, they just want it to happen. It will not just happen, there is no magic wand but there is a magic formula inside each one of us, we just need to unlock that formula – ONLY others who have already achieved success (not some ‘wannabe’ or ‘gonna’ or ‘should’a’ or the ton of ‘fake guru!!)… no people who are living the life you want to create. Personally, I take guide from only the greats you know, Jesus, Ghandhi, the great goddess… but hey thats just me:)
Make sure you take the time to ‘unplug’ yourself from the mundane, from the ordinary, from social media, go analogue for a while…see the results for yourself… don’t indulge in other people’s lives that are consumed by ‘selfies’ or holiday pics or how amazing their cooking is or whatever….. its mundane, it doesnt allow for divine greatness into your life… allow space for the unseen to be seen, for your visions to manifest…that requires stillness, space, and some void.
I switch off a lot of the time, I don’t get involved in fruitless activities, I simply search inside myself for that clarity and inner strength and instead of dreaming about the car, the house, the money…. I DO IT daily and live it daily and have it daily.
Dont get me wrong, I like the good things, I am a lover of beauty… but having the Porsche 911 didnt actually make me happy, its gorgeous, but its a thing. the intrinsic sense of beauty in things achieved is where happiness lies, the sense of achievement… not the thing, the feeling…
You CAN do it, you CAN have it all… the road won’t be easy but it can be SIMPLE….. just follow the real, true leaders and always alway, follow your intuition guide.
