Do you know what can make your success unstoppable?
We will answer this question in this post. It’s what I will be telling you.
But first, let us look at a few realities about success.
Do people find it easy to succeed in our times?
My answer is negative. And I have just read a post on the web which confirms this. It says according to studies, only 8 percent of people actually achieve their goals.
92 % don’t.
This is not the best news, but happily, the article gives 7 things they do differently.
Where do you fall? Are you among the 8% or the 92? As for me, its clear. I am among the 92%.
Thank God, I know it and also know what to do to move to the 8% group.
I like that Marcel Schwantes’ article gives what the successful people do differently that makes them succeed.
As a speaker and leadership coach, Schwantes knows what he is talking about.
Succeeding in today’s world is really hard. But why so?
This has always worried me and worries many others too, because, of course, we all want to succeed.
As I was searching for more on the subject, I met The Our Shawn McBride who has taken time to answer the question and also goes further to tell us what can be done:
“Why is it even harder to succeed Today Than Ever Before, And What To Do About It”
It makes a good read. And yes, success does not come on a platter of gold. But despite the challenges, a lot of people are still succeeding.
However, some people succeed better than others. Why so? A strategic business advisor and coach consultant, Amishi Mehta gives eleven good reasons for that:
11 Reasons Why Some people are More Successful Than Others.
A good question is: can you succeed? Can you overcome the so many challenges and pluck victory?
The answer is yes. But you have to pay a prize.
What does it take to be successful?
Different people have different answers to this question. While we have just had six points, in Lifehack, David K. William gives ten:
10 critical things you need for life success.
Success is what we all aspire for. There is no denying that it is a hard nut to crack to get to success.
Yet, everyday people succeed. That is the good news; and they will continue to succeed. This says that success is not farfetched. It is possible. And if it is possible for one, it is possible for all. Whoever wants it and does the right thing, gets it.
From what we have got from the experts we have been reading, the overriding elements in success are knowledge, action and persistence.
Know what you must do, (knowledge) do it ( action) for long enough (persistence), and success will be unstoppable.
Put these three elements to work and they will work for you.
Listen to all the success gurus in the world, they will tell you that knowing what to do is primordial. As I have always said, you cannot fry an egg without learning how to do it. You will make a mess of it.
Many people think they can dive into business and succeed without any knowledge of how to go about it. Simply locating your business demands knowledge of how to know a good location for it.
Then, of course, action is indispensable. No matter how brilliant you may be, if you conceive the best ideas, you will need to put them to action for them to produce results. No action, no result; action, result.
Lastly, action does not bring automatic results. Most of the times, you will have to push for things to work in your favour. This is what we call persistence.
Knowledge+action+persistence = Success.
