If you want to be successful in life, you’ll need to be purposeful and proactive in reaching your goals. Success doesn’t happen by accident. Instead, it takes commitment to become successful.

I read a great blog on CEO.com this week by Robert Steven Kaplan, President and Chief Executive of the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas, about how leaders think beyond their roles and that means taking on a broader perspective in figuring out what they truly believe should be done — that is, as if they were an owner. I couldn’t agree more!

Follow these 5 quick and simple Top Tips to help keep you on track during your journey to success:-

1.Your achievements

On days when you want to give up or feel like you can’t get there, it’s especially important to remember your accomplishments. Acknowledge the goals you have reached and use your past successes to fuel your motivation to reach the rest of your goals.

“The most splendid achievement of all is the constant striving to surprise yourself and to be worthy of your own approval.”

Denis Waitley

2.You may fail

Remember, most successful people in life experience many failures along the way. Not all the risks you take will turn out well. Remember you may fail – but be prepared to fail sometimes.

“I can accept failure, everyone fails at something. But I cannot accept not trying.”

Michael Jordan

3.Be productive

Being lazy won’t get you to where you want to be. If you want to be successful, you need to budget your time wisely. Learn strategies to be productive and you’ll improve your chances of reaching your goals.

“The least productive people are usually the ones who are most in favour of holding meetings.”

Thomas Sowell

4.Practice self-discipline

If you want success, you will need to be self-disciplined. There will be things in life you have to give up in order to reach your goals. You might not be able to do all the things you want, spend as much money as you want, or spend your time in the way you want. Instead, you’ll need to skip immediate gratification and keep your eyes on the goal.

“If we don’t discipline ourselves, the world will do it for us.”

William Feather

5.Embrace change

We live in a fast-paced world where things are constantly changing. If you resist change, you might soon get left behind. Remain flexible and be willing to embrace change.

“If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude.”

Maya Angelou
