Do you think successful people know something that you do not know yet? Yes.
Are you one who think successful people are gifted?
They are born with silver spoon? Lucky?
A big NO.
Then how do they always taste success?
They just follow these below 2 rules.
- Mind your own business.
- Make sure they follow rule 1.
Yes, people who keep peeping into others business seldom succeed in their life.
Imagine Steve Jobs looking at Microsoft or IBM and feeling depressed. Or only trying to find reasons for their success. Do you think he could have made Apple a successful brand as it stands today?
There is no doubt that you should keep a watch on your competitor. But you cannot spend all your time following them and missing your own business. The more success your competitor tastes, it will only make you more miserable. It could build in to a frustration which will make you miss your concentration. Result – you perform even more bad.
And in todays world of social media, you need to be more careful in following people. There are many personalities who keep sharing more negative news. If you read news from the Social Media, you will see a different world.
Believe me, that is not the real world. Switch off the mobile, and take a short walk outside your home.
Look at the persons greeting you with their smiles. Watch those innocent smile of the young child lying in the stroller. See those puppies jumping up in joy.
That is the real world. Happy world.
Following others, especially the negative people will only make you feel more depressed. If you are surrounded by people talking too much negative, do NOT think, cut the relation. Spend that quality time elsewhere.
Money is not everything in life
Do not mistake success in life as more money in life.
I am not saying money is not important. Money is important, next only to many other things in life. And mainly the LIFE itself.
Remember this, only money can not make you happy.
In the search for success do not forget your home. After all, when you taste success, you need to celebrate it and to celebrate it you should have a home & family.
You should have your wife to welcome you home.
You should have kids to share your happiness with.
True success in life means living happily.
Let me give an example.
A ordinary person who wants to earn more will start to put more effort to work hard, smart etc. Will learn actively into new areas and will be the to-go person on the how-to-do for such tasks,
But a successful people not just work. They will put more effort to sell themselves, to market themselves, learn the skill to negotiate and get a better deal with the Human resource manager.
Do not compare yourself with the others working with you. He could be successful for all the smart work they did. Learn from it and move on.
The successful people do not stand and watch what others do. They utilize those times in reading, set their own goals and also find time to pursue their passion.
Notice that a successful people are the not the one who sit in office late in the evening. If you watch closely, its quite an opposite.
Love your family
Yes, people leaving office at right time will be more successful. Because, they plan things right and know there is a family waiting for them back home.
Spending time with your kids and family is the top relaxing thing that keeps the sucessful people energized.
Next time your kid ask you to take him/her out, CLOSE your laptop and keep going. Be with them, be them. They will love. And such love is reciprocal, comes back to you in multiples which will energize you for the days to come.
This abundant love is the secret ingredient for ones success.
Now, keep watching your clock. Get back home, when its time. Spend time wisely with your own family. Have a nice sleep.
Wake up for a successful day, everyday.
