Become the Person You Were Truly Meant to Be!

Success Information

     Welcome to our Success Information page of our site. Here we will discuss the many aspects of living a successful lifestyle. Exactly what your own definition of success may be, it is our intention to help you achieve that lifestyle. Whether you want a better job, start a new career, open your own business, or establish new and better relationships, we are her to help you.

     But first you need to know what success means to you. You have to ask yourself what is important to you and what may be lacking in your lifestyle. You have to understand what has meaning to you, what your values and morals really are and how to take all of this information and use it to create a plan for success.

     This is important because sometimes we think we want one thing when in fact we really want something else. For example, we might think we want a better job because we will earn more money when what we really want is to get a job that gives us more time to spend with family and friends. Or we might get tired of our current job not because of the job itself but because we no longer have any motivation to keep doing what we are doing. It is important to understand the issues behind the feelings so we can make better and more accurate decisions.

     We also need to understand that your ideal lifestyle, or what you define as being successful is up to you. No one else can create your ideal lifestyle because no one really knows what matters to you and what drives you. Everyone is different and every situation is different. So you need to understand what is important to you and how you can get more of that in your own life.

     We can solicit advice and we can adopt role models in people who appear to have similar goals and aspirations. We can ask for advice, do a ton of research and ask the right questions but the final decision is ours alone. Most of us fly by the seat of our pants when it comes to going through life. Most of us do not have a success plan and prefer instead to take it day by day. the problem with this approach is that you often get stuck in one place or take the wrong path. This results in delay after delay in getting what you want out of life.

     What I want you to do is understand what is important to you and where you want to go in life. I want you to understand your goals and aspirations and then sit down and create a plan designed to achieve all of those goals in a reasonable amount of time. I also want you to have a timeline so you will know where you are in your plan. Are you ahead of schedule or behind schedule? This will help keep you motivated and on track.

     This does not mean that once you create your plan it is etched in stone. It is exactly the opposite. You will definitely change your plan as life changes around you. Your goals may change as well and that is fine. Your plan is not designed to keep you in a ridged process that does not change with life. Instead it will be a plan that will grow and change with you over time. Things will be added and subtracted as life and your goals require. Time frames will change as well. Nothing will be etched in stone.

     I also realize that there will be some resistance to creating such a plan. Some of you will not be willing to invest the time thinking you know what you want and are capable of getting there on your own. Others will think that the time they spent creating and defining their plan could be better spent actually achieving those goals instead of just defining them.

     I respectfully disagree. I think taking the time to create a plan will save you a ton of time in the future. Having a plan to refer to so that you can easily and quickly see where you are at any given time is very helpful and motivating. For those who believe that just starting without planning is a better use of your time I disagree with that approach as well. Most successful people think and define before they take action. They take action based on facts and not felling or perception. In other words, they know exactly what they want and how they are going to go about getting it in their lives.

     So right now I would like you to give a little thought about what you want in life. I want you to define what is important to yo and what gives you satisfaction and drives you. Then I want you to create your success plan. A plan that will help you get more of what you want in life while removing some of what you don’t like at the same time. This is a process and it will take time and it will take a good plan to help keep us on track.
