It’s all too common to hear people saying that they wished they were somewhere else in life. That they had been more successful and wished they were in the position of someone else they look up to.

I was there too.

Wait a minute! Do we really have to do this to ourselves?

No, of course not!

Each day brings with it an opportunity of a lifetime, these moments come thick and fast, the only thing we need is to keep our mind open and grab the opportunity.

Or like the Romans used to say “Carpe Diem” or “Grab the Day”, they knew this and so do we.
Simply start today towards enjoying and achieving life success:

1. Look at where you are at
Have you really looked at all the good things you have accomplished? Don’t measure yourself to others, but to yourself.
2. Look at where you want to be
Make sure that you allow all your dreams and hopes to be included. Always remember to stay positive towards yourself.
3. What do you need to get there
Be very clear what you need to get there, is it education, time, money, networking and other things? Nothing happens unless you make it and keep on.
4. Give yourself goals and targets
Keep the goals simple and then give yourself targets like steps on the way to the goals. Like weekly to reach a goal by the end of the year.
5. Have clear measurements based on time, quantity, quality and cost
You need to know when the target is on time, within budget, with the quantity and quality you set.
6. Focus and do it
The key is to stay focused in spite of whatever happens.
7. Don’t allow interruptions to upset your plan, rather plan smaller steps so that you do not stop on the way
There is nothing as disheartening than seeing something that you have started to slide because you did not pull the rains right away. Make sure you enjoy and achieve life success.
If we search for our own development let’s remember that good things happen slowly.

Having herself survived several excruciating life lessons she realized that she had come on top in spite of all odds. She had learned to use her intuition, insights and little used old knowledge known to man.
