Control your own Success

 – By: Magnus Gunnlaugsson

It is a sad aspect of live but not everyone is successful. In the world, we live in there are winners and losers. Most people want to be in the group of winners but unfortunately, many remain where they stand. As you well know, being successful means to stand above the others around you or to know more that the one sitting next to you does. Not being successful is simple: you make all the wrong choices, you work without ethics, you most likely lack responsibility and education is almost everything. Although it is not obvious, the lack of success is also a choice, but a choice that can be gained on the first try.You need to understand how to have more success than your colleague does and to work for success. Success does not come free or cheap, you have to pay for it. The price is not monetary but it is expressed in manners of time and effort, these being precious details that you cannot receive back once you gave them away. Success is hard. To be successful you have to work hard, be educated and have a little bit of luck. Often you have to try many times until you truly reach success.

Here is some practical advice on how to be successful:

– Alter your behavior and learn good manners.

– Always read, always learn and always communicate.

– Build up a purpose in life, create a plan and go on living by it.

– Cherish everything you have and get.

– Find out more, be responsible, learn about control and always stay informed.

– Give up watching so much television, or playing games.

– Give up bad habits and keep the good ones: eat well and regularly, get enough sleep, go to a gym or just go jogging.

– Keep your sense of humor but do not become rude.

– Try to work more in the shortest possible periods of time.

– Think and act fast when faced with an opportunity. If you see what you really want, do not let any chances pass you by. This one might just be the last you will get.

Anyone and everyone can have success but you just need to grab it for yourself in leaps or small steps or any way you can.
