7 Tips to Be Successful

7 tips

I may only be pushing 28, but I feel like I’ve already experienced and learned a lot about life. At a young age, I faced challenges that shaped me into who I am today; challenges that many adolescents are not exposed to until later in life. Before entering college, I learned that you should not expect anything from anyone, that the world owes you nothing and that, most of the time, you have to create your own opportunities. I mean none of this negatively; I speak this truth because there are many near me who have yet to face this fact.

There is more to being successful than just knowing how to do the job, and as I prepare to launch my side business with my friend, I want to share with you my own tips to help you be successful in life:

1. Have a sense of humor. You have to have a sense of humor about life or this world will eat you alive.

2. Take a chill pill. This week was pretty rough for me professionally. I was off my sleep schedule, which was reminiscent of my college days; I felt creatively challenged; and I had a difficult time staying organized (or so it seemed). Moments like these can make you feel inefficient, ineffective and incompetent; they can work their way into your confidence and mess with your thoughts. As I began to notice myself turning this into a larger ordeal than what it was, I spent a day resetting after work. There was no computer, no thinking about the next day.  It was just a night of relaxing and letting everything roll off my shoulder. Tomorrow was a new day, and I certainly felt much more productive.

3. Be patient. When I have something set in my mind, I want it to happen NOW. I see the end results, but sometimes I let the present bring me down. As life goes on, I learn that everything happening in my journey has a purpose, and if I rush it, I will not have the results for which I am striving.

4. Let it go. For some time following college graduation, I had a hard time accepting that I was not some kind of prodigy, something I always cropped-p10307001.jpgenvisioned I would be; I thought I might just stand out to someone and have my work ethic and talents recognized immediately. Obviously, that is not how life works. But, I read a self-help book a couple years ago that contained the following words: “Accept the things you cannot change, and change the things you can.” This really opened my eyes to the amount of stress and energy I was exerting on things that were out of my control. The thing I could control? My attitude.

5. See the positive. Another thing that helped me to move forward in my goals (one step at a time) was to start focusing on the positive. I won’t lie and say that I am always feeling positive because it just is not the case, and guess what? That’s OK! We are human; it’s OK that you have a bad week…or a bad month. But, a few years ago I realized I was upset about my current situation but was not going the extra mile to change it like I thought I was. There were things that I could not control, and I allowed that to hold me back from opportunities (see phrase above). Trust me, there were moments where the world seemed against me; car breaking down, bills to pay on a limited income, family health issues…but everything needs to be approached one step at a time. Surround yourself with positive and supportive people who can help you through those moments, and weed out the ones who not looking out for your best interests. Meditation is also an additional (and practical!) option.

Days will still get to me, but I am more active now in seeking realistic solutions and pushing myself one extra step to create the life I want, both personally and professionally.

6. Be active. Be active in your life. Go for walks, hikes…get out in nature. Play tennis with a friend, go for a run by yourself; whatever it is, get those limbs moving. You’ll be amazed at how clear your mind is after. (Plus, bonus points for being healthy!)

7. Be supportive. You aren’t going to be successful in life by wishing ill-will on others. What good does it do to you to hope for (or actively seek) the failure of someone else? Does that solve your problem? Does speculating really promote positivity in your life? Your time will come, but don’t expect it to if you live a life full of envy and hate. I’ve always tried to live my life by taking the high road as my parents taught me at a young age that reacting to another person’s poor decisions and negative actions toward you will not push you farther. Taking this route, while at times very challenging to do, has been continuously favorable in my life.

 

All in all, we all have our own battles, and we are all dealt a different hand; how you choose to play your cards is up to you. Mine is a game full of opportunities and unlimited options. What’s yours?
