Achieving Success on Purpose

GT Bulmer GT Bulmer © Affiliate Power Central

Most people dream of achieving success in some area of their life, whether it is personal or business or whatever. Some people just seem to fall into it naturally. But most of us have to work at it purposefully!

What I mean is you’ve got to clearly know what you want, where you are going and how to get there before you embark on your journey, otherwise you will end up simply spinning your wheels in frustration.

Now, I know what most people think: they think that they DO know what they want, and where they are going, and how to get there. But when their efforts produce less than spectacular results, rather than analyzing the problem from an internal perspective, as they should, they try to place the blame for it externally. … Read the rest of this entry

Everybody is in transition in one form or another, whether it is your employment, relationships, family, lifestyle or whatever. Chances are things are different for you today than they were last year and they will be different again next year.

Basically, the future is uncertain; what are you doing to prepare for it? Are you ready for change and transition, or do you need to re-evaluate your present state and create a plan for reinventing yourself to effectively deal with the coming changes and challenges?

You can be a victim of change or an agent of change: the choice is yours. In one sense, you are the center of your universe: from your perspective, everything happens to you and around you. So, it makes sense to be proactive as an agent of change so you can direct your own future. … Read the rest of this entry

Success means different things to different people, and there are a variety of areas in our lives to consider, from personal success, to family success, spiritual success, business success, social success. Defining success can cover a lot of territory!

Today, I will focus on business and marketing success: Internet Marketing, to be exact.

There was a time a number of years ago when I thought that my whole purpose for starting and building a home-based Internet business was to make money online. After a couple of years of trying to learn the business, struggling along and not making much progress, I started to realize something about myself and my Internet income goals. … Read the rest of this entry

One quality of successful people is the ability to develop an effective personal action plan and follow it faithfully until the desired outcome has been achieved. Even a simple daily to-do list can work wonders to increase your productivity.

To-do lists help you focus on the tasks at hand, serving as a visual reminder of the important things you need to get done. If you know your primary purpose (either in life or in a specific business project) and you have clear goals, then you can benefit greatly from a defined action plan and daily tasks to help guide you.

To develop and define your personal action plan, you must clarify your values, create a mission statement, and identify the skills and talents you have that can be applied to achieving your purpose and your goals. … Read the rest of this entry

Breaking Down Barriers to Success

I used to believe that as you got older, things got easier. With age you acquired experience, confidence and other qualities. Well, I now see that no matter how old you are, breaking down barriers to success is an ongoing challenge.

The thing is, we are living in a fast-paced age where technological change and information overload has become increasingly overwhelming; you have to run to keep up! If you can’t keep up to changes in your industry, you WILL be left behind.

It might seem like an impossible task to keep pace with change, but the thing to remember is that all success and achievement begins with an individual and the best way to conquer change is to be the director of it. … Read the rest of this entry

What’s your learning style? I just received a link to a great resource from Brian Tracy InternationalBrian Tracy International that lets you quickly and easily do a personal learning assessment on yourself. Use it to identify your dominant learning sense.

Brian’s personal learning assessment is a PDF document with three pages. The first page is an infographic that describes the three styles of learning. The second page and part of the third page is a series of questions designed to identify your dominant sense. The rest of the third page offers some additional insight into each of the styles.

Do you really know what your primary goal in life is and how to achieve it? A lot of people think they have clear goals and a real sense of purpose, but if that is the case, why are so many still struggling to find their way?

To take full advantage of the tremendous power in clarity, you first have to be truly clear in what you truly want. The great thing is you don’t have to be a person with above average ability to succeed. You just need to understand the psychology of achievement and how to effectively channel your efforts towards a well-defined purpose.

Here is a guiding quote from Brian Tracy that I think is awesome: “The establishment of a clear, central purpose or goal in life is the starting point of all success. An average person with average talent, ambition and education, can outstrip the most brilliant genius in our society, if that person has clear, focused goals.” . . . Read the rest of this entry
