Being successful means the achievement of desired visions and planned goals. Furthermore,ย successย can be a certain social status that describes a prosperous person that could also have gained fame for its favorable outcome. The dictionary describesย successย as the following: โ€œattaining wealth, prosperity and/or fameโ€

Why some people are successful and others don’t make it? As for everything in this world success also requires dedication and some very important ‘rules’. Let’s break it down.

5 Steps to Success

  1. Set up your goals: Let’s be honest: you can’t achieve a goal without having one. Deep down we all know why we are here, what is our purpose, and what we want to do. It is not always easy to figure out but I would say: follow your intuition. It is okay to be happy with one job now and then to want more/ or change your mind as through our life we grow and our goals are becoming different. So get yourself a journal/planner and write down your goals, what makes you happy and what you want to achieve in the next timeline.
  2. Establish your routine: If you speak to any of the successful persons they will tell you that they have established a routine. So what does this means? At first, make sure you wake up and go to bed every day at the same time. The next thing to watch for is your thoughts in the morning. Whether you wake up happy and grateful or moody and unhappy – this will set up the tone for the rest of the day. 99% of successful people have some kind of exercise in the morning/ yoga/ or meditation. Whatever you chose will benefit you for the long term in the future.
  3. Consistency: It is very simple if you want to be successful – you must be consistent. If you think this is the easiest part – you are wrong. Being consistent requires dedication and discipline. A lot of people fail on this step. I will always remember the words of my first manager back in the days when I was assistant: ” If it was easy everyone would do it “. Think about it.
  4. Have a vision: You must have a vision of your goals and remind yourself daily. This will help you visualize it and give you positive vibration. What also can help you is the vision board – put on your ideals, goals ( work vise, dream house, beautiful relationship, fitness, hair…anything) and you will see it as first thing in the morning. You can keep it in your room or office. There is plenty of vision boards application so you can even have it on your phone.
  5. Work hard for it: Now once we have all steps in place – this one can’t be left out. Whatever you want to achieve you must work for it and being consistent on a daily basis. If you want to be lean and fit- you must workout. If you want to be a successful blogger you must create quality content … for each goal applies the same rules. And remember to not give up. It takes 21 days to create a new habit. In this time your body and mind will try to sabotage you but you must get up and do it until you have formed a new habit.

  1. More than working hard, I think that it is necessary that you have passion for whatever you are doing. If you enjoy the journey to reaching your aim more than the bitterness of it, the destination will feel much more fresh than a struggle. And I personally believe that if you have passion, you will eventually work hard to reach your set goal…

    Love from India,


  2. Youโ€™re right! I think having a vision and being consistent are very important~ but it needs to be done right. So if you have an unrealistic goal and are consistently doing the wrong things, you will definitely not see results
