Laing Burns Jr. said, “Success often comes to those who have the aptitude to see way down the road.” One of the major differences between people who succeed and those who don’t is that people who succeed have the ability to see way down the road ahead.
This article will help you to see down that road.
5 Inspirational Success Lessons:
Lesson 1: Always Act
“Have a bias towards action – let’s see something happen now. You can break that big plan into small steps and take the first step right away.” – Gandhi
If you’re going to be biased, be biased towards making something happen today. Tomorrow never comes, any progress to be made, must be made today. It must be made right now!
If you don’t act now, you don’t have a future, just a longer today. Gandhi said, “The future depends on what we do in the present.”
Lesson 2: Monitor Your Beliefs
“Your beliefs become your thoughts. Your thoughts become your words. Your words become your actions. Your actions become your habits. Your habits become your values. Your values become your destiny.” – Gandhi
In short, your beliefs will create your destiny. What do you believe? What do you believe about yourself, your future, and your potential? What you believe, you will surely become.
Lesson 3: Develop
“A man, as a general rule, owes very little to what he is born with – a man is what he makes of himself.” – Alexander Graham Bell
You are what you make of yourself!
This is why self-development is so important; you are “exactly” what you have spent your time developing into. You decide what you become. You can develop into success or failure. You can get better or worse, you decide. A man, or woman, is what they make of themselves.
Lesson 4: Repair Your Character
“No change of circumstances can repair a defect of character.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
Your thoughts determine your feelings, your feelings determine your actions, and your actions determine your character.
A defected character comes from defective thinking and can only be corrected via accurate thinking (thinking that is in-line with where you want to go and who you want to be). Better circumstances won’t change a defected character; only “better” thinking can do that. If you don’t decide to think “better,” your way-of-thinking will eventually drag you down exposing your defected character.
Lesson 5: Make Yourself Necessary
“Make yourself necessary to somebody.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
If you didn’t learn anything from this article, please take this final point. Make yourself necessary! Not just to somebody, but to a host of people. When you work on yourself, and grow yourself, and spend years sharpening your skills, you will become valuable; you will become necessary to somebody.
