We’ve decided to bring this discuss to you because success and happiness is a topic that is gradually fading in our community. "Folks" talk just about anything you can think of especially on social media but success and happiness seems like a mystery because we do not talk about it. Are you struggling in your business, at school, at the gym, or even at your job? Then let our 5 steps guide you to success and happiness.
1. Do not set goals that are impossible to achieve
People often say, "Nothing is impossible with God". While this is true, one must be able to set a limit between reality and fantasy. No true success is easy to achieve and one must be ready to earn it. If one wins the jackpot, then it is possible to want a Lamborghini Veneno ($4.5M) as your first car but believe it or not, if you are a college graduate or an high school graduate and have a job that pays you on an hourly basis, then you might as well be reasonable when making your goals.
You are probably wondering when to start working towards your goals. There is never a perfect time to start working towards your goals. The best time to start is now. If you keep saying that you will get started tomorrow, then you might end up not getting started. Make your goals your priority.
3. Do not start your goals "cold turkey"
When you start working towards you goals, remember, it is one step at a time. As a child you learned to crawl before you started walking and it is the same with anything else you will do in life. Climbing 2 steps at a time might set you up to for a tripping.
4. Hang with the right group of friends
When you hang with people that have similar goals, you will possibly get support and motivation. "No one is an island" and often times, we need encouragement and motivation from others as a push in order to achieve our goals.
