5 Tips on How To Be Successful

If you want tips on how to be successful then it is not hard.  Well actually, being successful is hard but the formula is not hard.  Most people want to learn how to be successful but they are not willing to do what it takes in order to be successful and then get discouraged when things do to not work out the way they want it to and how they want to (see my blog here on why people fail). People want to complain how nothing good ever happens to them and feel sorry for themselves (see my blog here on how to stop feeling sorry for yourself).  When really success is not accidental, there are certain things you can do to ensure that you are successful.

So Here are My Top 5 Tips on How To Be Successful

Do What You Are Good At

There is a myth going around that says if you do what you are good at then it won’t seem like work.  That is false.  If you do what you are good at and really work at it, then it will seem like work.  That is because it is work. And working to be successful is what you should be doing.

5 Tips on How To Be Successful


The reason why you should do what you are good at is because doing what you are good at is something that ensure that you will be more successful at it.  And the work will not seem as hard or you won’t dread the work because you enjoy it, causing you to do more of it. The Best Way To Succeed In Life Is To Find Your Purpose and Work at It.

No Excuses

Making excuses is the top reason why people are not successful. They make excuses as to why they cannot go after their goals, why they cannot get something done, why they cannot do this or that and as a result they get a whole bunch of nothing.  Because they are making excuses for everything. Please stop blaming every body and every thing for what you cannot do. (See my blog here for more on that topic).

Do you really want to know how to be successful?  Then stop making excuses. Be real with yourself and ask yourself are you working the hardest that you can work and doing all that you can do to achieve your goal.  If you are, then stop making excuses and change your behavior.

Do Not Listen to Other People

If you have it on your heart you need to go after something, then go after it.  Do not listen to other people tell you that you cannot do something and do not try to go after what other people are trying to do. (Also see my blog here on people trying to bring you down).

But you will never figure out what is for you if you are too busy trying to chase after someone else’s life and get what they have.Do You Really Know How To Be Successful & What It Really Takes?

Be Intentional

I cannot stress this enough you have to be intentional about your life.  When you look at the most successful people, they often worked hard and had a plan.  No one just looked up, reached their ideal success, and said hey I just randomly got here by accident and there was no planning or hard work on my part.

When I say be intentional you have to know exactly where you want to go and how to get there. I know you cannot plan for all the bumps that come along the way but you should be planning your life, your goals, and how to reach those goals. Otherwise, you cannot expect to just get there because you wished upon a star and it all of a sudden happened.  Most of the time it just does not work like that.

If you want to know how to be successful then all of these tips really come to down to one thing.  You must work hard at it and put out good quality work and your efforts will pay off (read my blog here).

The sad reason why most people do not reach their goals is because they are not willing to do what it takes to be successful or they are too busy flying by the seat of their pants hoping that success will track them down.  It won’t.

When you think about being successful you want your success to be a long term thing that you can build on (Check out my blog here for more).  That is why the most successful’ s people platform was not built overnight or in a day. And that is the type of success that stands the test of time. It takes consistency, hard work, and planning.  I promise you if you follow the above tips you will get to where you want to go.
