Your Journey to Success

Sep 17, 2018 | Australian College


No two paths to success are alike. Each person’s journey is unique as a fingerprint or a snowflake, thus success is relative to the person who strives for it.

If you aim to be successful, the first and most important question that you must ask yourself is “What do I need to do to achieve what I want?”

Success is a mindset. It’s not about who you are, but about what you do. It doesn’t matter if you do or don’t have the necessary tools and resources, the quality of your actions will lead you to reach the goals you desire and keep growing from there.

What is your current belief system? If you think you need to make big changes in your life, start by building a strong mental and emotional foundation. Here are some of the most impactful strategies to start with:

The happiness project

Don’t get caught up in the “What ifs”. Learn to be happy with your current state and develop a sense of contentment. If you’re feeling down and currently lack motivation that you need to move forward, here are some of the best inspirational and motivational quotes that you can use as a pick-me-up.

Read good books and learn new things

Develop a reading habit, challenge yourself to read something that interests you on a daily basis. Reading has a lot of hidden benefits, it can Improve your vocabulary, broaden your perspective and enrich your mind. Studying can also expand your horizons. Education has a positive effect on an individual. It brings a greater depth of understanding, theoretical knowledge, and analytical skill.

“You’re never too old to start learning, and you’re never too young to aim high and achieve great things.” – Asa Hutchinson

Keep a journal

Set goals and keep them in a journal so you can keep track of your progress. It doesn’t matter if they are short-term or long-term. Goal-setting is an important part of success. It gives you more clarity. Jotting things down in a journal will give you a clear purpose of what you want to achieve in life.

Resilience is an essential skill

Be like bamboo. During a hurricane, the bamboo bends rather than break. Being resilient means you won’t allow yourself to become a victim of circumstance. Do not let negative thoughts drag you down. Resilience is a skill that can be cultivated. Make this your mission. Continue to work on reaching your goals despite setbacks, despite complications and you will always rise above the fray. Don’t give up!

Dig a hole and bury your bad habits

Throughout your life, you develop some habits that you’re not proud of. You may already be aware that these habits are toxic but you remain stuck in the same place for a long time. A common bad habit is procrastination. It’s a very unhealthy and futile behaviour pattern that is typical at home, in school and in the workplace. It could be hard to change as you age and old habits might seem too hard to break but if you want to be successful, start building good habits while you still can and consider shifting your paradigm.

Past is past

Your past doesn’t define your future so don’t look back on life with regret!

“What’s past is past, nothing can change that. But the future can be different if we choose to make it so. We have to cultivate a vision of a happier, more peaceful future and make the effort now to bring it about. This is no time for complacency, hope lies in the action we take.” — Dalai Lama
