Four Secrets to Achieving Success
Everyone wants to be successful. When one hears the word “success” the focus is generally toward “career” success. However, personal or life success, such as with your health and relationships, is also important.
Success is about setting goals, blueprinting your vision, and then adding action to the mix.
So what are the four secrets that can help you be successful?
It is vital that you set yourself goals for your personal and professional lives. These will provide a target to aim for. Once you've listed your goals then write down the steps you are going to take to achieve them. In other words, connect action with your goals.
“Inspiration without action is merely entertainment.”
It can be helpful to find an accountability partner, mentor or coach who can help and support you.
Remember That Your Personal and Professional Lives Are Inter-dependent
You may think that your career goals are totally separate from your personal goals. However, they are inter-dependent. Your career relies on your well-being, impacts on your relationships, health and happiness. Same holds true for your happiness, relationships and health being affected by your career. If you're not happy at work or doing a job you love then it will have an impact on your emotional and physical well-being, as well as affecting other areas of your personal life.
To be successful in one area you need to create success in other areas as well.
Start to look at the big picture. It can be to the “30,000 foot view.” View your overall situation from the vantage point of a bird flying overhead.
Find Your Passion and Purpose
If your personal and professional lives are inter-dependent, then to be successful in them you will need to discover your passion and purpose. By discovering these you will create determination to succeed, enhance your creativity, spark inspiration and be able to harness the power of flow in your activities.
Ask yourself what you really want to do with your life. What do you want your legacy to be? What would you love?
Don't Focus on the Money
While many people consider amassing wealth to be a sign of success, that should not be your end goal or sole success indicator.
Instead focus on your emotions, lifestyle and well-being. What will your life look and feel like when you have successfully achieved your goals? How will your family and friends feel? Why not create a vision board with words, quotes and pictures showing your life as a success? Our mind can be a powerful tool in bringing forth what we desire. Picture what success will look for you. What type of person will you become?
With your success, how will you be making an impact in your company and in the wider community? What will your weeks look like? Think about work/life balance and the effect on your family and relationships with friends. How will your new role or business affect your life, health and happiness?
While success can mean different things to different people, one thing all definitions have in common is that success is measured by achieving goals that make you feel positive emotions, for example, happiness and a sense of achievement. You will find the greatest success comes when you use your passions to create your goals in life and work.

To your health and happiness,
Even if you have heard of the term 'committed to excellence', do you fully understand what it means? The following quote is from Aristotle and defines what excellence is.
"Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit."
Immediately you can see that excellence is a habit, and any habit can be formed. The best way to create a new habit is by setting yourself new goals and creating a plan of attack. Let's see how you can do this.
First you want to define your reasons, or why, for wanting to commit to excellence. Does this pertain to your business, your health or for some other reason? If it helps write down your reasons and your why for wanting to achieve this.
If your goal is to be committed to excellence for your health there are some simple actionable steps that you can put into place. If your health is not where you would like it to be, then get into the habit of implementing small changes to improve your health.
You can easily improve your health by doing any of the following:
Another way to improve your health through excellence is by pre planning. Start to find time to enjoy more home cooked meals. Share this responsibility with others in your home.
There are healthy recipes on the internet, as well as in cookbooks that can be picked up at your local library. Possibly joining a support group, such as the Restart program in your area to learn more about how to make healthy eating a part of your everyday life.
Health encompasses many aspects of our lives. Our relationships, financial status, careers, social lives, emotions, and spirituality, all have an effect upon our health. Yet at the same time, all of these different attributes of our lives is affected by the state of our health.
If you want to excel in your life then you can start by attempting to put forth the best effort you can. If you do this consistently you will have that air of excellence surrounding you. This will rub off on other people and they will begin to view you in a different light.
