How to Be Successful…

Of course there are many possibilities for success in life, but this is not a pie in the sky. You need to work hard to feel the sense of accomplishment in life and work.
Let’s start with step 1!
Build a foundation for success
Clear the priorities of things. Success is more than just some vague wishes you wish to achieve. You need to prioritize things and know what is most important to you. This helps you set goals for yourself and accomplish things that make you happy and fulfilling.
1- You need to decide what is the most important thing you want to accomplish: Do you want to start a family at some time? Do you want to be a writer who has published a book? Do you want to become an expert in the medical field? Make a list of the important things you want to accomplish, and write the most important first. As you develop a plan to achieve these goals, you will constantly review this list, make some adjustments, and cross out the goals that have already been achieved.
Remember, although these are the things you plan to do first, they are not set in stone. It’s okay, there are often unexpected things in life, but if you have at least one goal, you are more likely to get what you want. If you need to, you can change your dreams.
Find the “element” you like. This is a kind of motivation that drives you, something you love. As the saying goes, what you do to delay work is what you really should do.
2- This can be anything: writing, painting, dancing, computer science, cooking, archeology. The key is to cultivate your interest in this “element”, you will feel more satisfied and happier.
Remember, you may use this skill in unexpected situations, as long as you maintain the possibility of using it. For example: You may have received classical dance training. Although you have not been able to perform on stage, you can teach low-income children to dance. You use that “element”, but in a way you never imagined. This is success. Practice this skill. Even if you are very good at writing, it is difficult for you to become a great writer unless you practice reading and writing constantly. If you are not writing as a living, then you can squeeze some time to write before and after work (before work is better because you are not too tired). The same is true for any other skills.
Make a plan. To be successful, you can’t just sit there and wait for life to give you the tools you need. You must make a plan and try to adapt to life. Remember, your plan can be changed, but you have to keep looking forward. If you have decided what to do first, then you need to come up with some long-term and short-term plans to complete, so that they are more than just a dream.
For example: if you have decided to perform on stage, then you need to take acting classes (and screenwriting classes) and start working in a nearby theater.
4- To give another example, if you want to study Egyptology, you need to go to university to study the history of ancient Egypt, you have to learn to read hieroglyphs (as well as Greek and Latin, so that you can understand people’s descriptions of ancient Greece; It depends on the era you want to study). You have to choose a certain area of ​​interest (such as funeral customs in the Middle Kingdom era) and go to graduate school. All of this must be written on your schedule. You have to receive some kind of education to become a prestigious Egyptologist, which requires a lot of time and energy.
Seek help. No matter how strong a person’s abilities are,you will need many different types of help: the public school system gives him the opportunity to acquire knowledge (although not always great), and your  family members will help you develop hobbies for you. University (for example).
You don’t have to be afraid of contact with others, especially those who can help you extend your goals. This is not a selfish thing. For example: If you want to become an archaeologist, you can go to a nearby museum to work voluntarily, so that you can not only get some valuable information, but also help others.
If you have the opportunity, you must also help others. The more you are willing to give, the more you will gain
Work hard for success
Keep learning. You have to keep learning. Staying old and learning old will help prevent Alzheimer’s disease and keep you engaged and interested in the life around you.
There are many ways to learn. You can read some local history books until you can tell about the places of interest, and you can also learn to sew quilts.
Don’t be complacent. If you stay in the comfort zone for too long, you will not be able to challenge yourself further and keep your head clear. So, if you are interested in history, then you can learn a little more mathematics, or learn a language.
Make efforts.

Possible to get something for nothing. You must practice the skills you have learned to consolidate them. Most of the work you do will not be seen by others, so it is important to judge the priorities. Otherwise you will be consumed a lot of energy by those things you don’t like.

2-Focus on the most important things.

If the work you are doing is not the most important thing you think is the most important thing, then you have to find a way to change it. Try adding a bit of creative sparkle or humor to the catering industry, customer service work, or boring clerical work. For example, if you are an artist, you can add some of your artwork to your work report, which is enough to make it more interesting.

Although many people’s success seems to be because of luck, the reason why most people are so lucky is precisely because they happened to put in a lot of effort at that time). You probably won’t see the effort behind the

3-Turn your failure into a learning experience.

There is a significant difference between successful people and unsuccessful people, and that is their attitude towards setbacks, that is, those unsuccessful things. No matter how hard you work and how talented you are, you may fail, and successful people can overcome these obstacles in strides.

Instead of treating failures and obstacles as reflections on yourself, it is better to ask yourself what you have learned from them. What will be different next time? If you have mastered all the resources in the world, how would you solve this problem? How do other people deal with similar problems?

If you have already used it to learn, then let this “failure” go. Next time you face a similar situation, you will be more prepared. If you are always struggling with this matter and constantly hitting yourself, then you will find it more difficult next time you encounter similar problems, because you already feel that you will fail.

4-Adventure. You cannot succeed without taking any risks.

People who always stay in their comfort zone will never achieve greater breakthroughs and will never really succeed. You must take the initiative to face your fears, face up to the possibility of failure, and try boldly.

For example: If you must be anxious when talking to others, try to talk to people you don’t know at least once a week. This can be a simple conversation like asking about the time, discussing the late bus, etc. You can ask the salesperson in the store to help you find something. The more you try, the easier it will feel. And talking to others is a very important part of success (because you need to ask others for advice and establish contacts).

Get out of your comfort zone. Let yourself do things you may not be willing to do. Go to a free yoga class, or attend a free lecture in a nearby library, and ask some questions, or try a cooking class.

The more you go out and try, the more calmly you can deal with some of the problems in your life, because only in areas outside your comfort zone will you go through the process of problem-solving.

5-Imagine some positive results.

You will be surprised to find that what your brain thinks has a great influence on your success. If you are always negative, then no matter how much you have achieved, you will feel that your life is a failure and find that obstacles become more difficult to overcome.

Going back to what you think is your top priority, imagine that you have successfully accomplished these things. Imagine you have a happy family, become a star of a local theater company, or give a wonderful lecture on Egyptology.

The more special and detailed your imagination, the more positive they will be. So you have to imagine the sound of people moving their chairs, imagine them tilting their bodies forward, imagine the heat of the stage lighting, and your future children’s laughter.

helping others. To continue to succeed, it is very important to engage in philanthropy and help others, because you have to build contacts and a network of mutual help. In the long run, it will also be good for you. Doing good deeds will not only contribute to your life, be beneficial to your health and self-esteem, but also make your living environment better.

Even if you are poor, you can help others. You can donate 30 yuan to a local project you support. You can contribute some time or skills to local companies or non-profit organizations that need help.

It’s very simple, you can help people around you do something. You can buy a cup of coffee for the person behind you. You can offer to help your sister take care of the children. You can clean the room for your parents once a week. Your generosity will also affect the people around you.

2-build connection.

To be successful in life, making connections is very important. You should not only contact those who can help you extend your goals, but also pay attention to contact your friends and relatives. They make our life more comfortable and make us less lonelyi.

Of course, you should try to contact people who can help you extend your goals. There is nothing wrong with this. This can be as simple as asking for advice from an expert in a field you admire, or it can be a letter of introduction or even a job.

Contacting people means you have to talk to people. So you have to do something like this: go up and talk to the speaker after the lecture, tell him how much you enjoy the lecture, and politely introduce yourself and your hobbies.
Build contacts anytime, anywhere. You have to participate in social networking. Go to some activities, help with charity work, talk to people around you and tell them that you think they are important (this can be as simple as asking how the other person is doing and listening carefully to their answers). Strong connections can help you succeed because they can support you and help you when you fall.

Don’t cross the river and demolish the bridge. Of course you have to get rid of those who are harmful, but compared with keeping in touch, having a relationship with others (even if it is merely alienating) may also have a negative impact on you. People will talk to each other, and the world is smaller than you think. If someone hurts you, you can tell them, but don’t make them feel that you are going to cut off contact forever. At the same time you have to recognize your mistakes.

3-take care of yourself.

If you care too much about your goals, ignore your life, and take good care of yourself, then you will not succeed. Your health and quality of life will be affected. People always want to live and “success”, but they forget to live. If you are happy, satisfied, and can enjoy life, then you are successful. This has nothing to do with money, reputation, or attracting the “right” partner.

Exercise is a good way to help you adjust your body and mind and stay healthy. During exercise, your body releases some chemicals, such as endorphins, which help your mental health. Exercising with enthusiasm is also beneficial to the heart and other organs of the body. Try to exercise for 30 minutes a day, such as practicing yoga, brisk walking, running, and dancing.

Eat healthy food

This is not to say that you have to give up all your favorite foods. But you should eat as many fruits and vegetables as possible as well as healthy carbohydrates (such as brown rice, quinoa, whole wheat flour, oatmeal), and eat more protein-containing foods, such as salmon, nuts, beans, these foods can enhance immunity, and Better control blood sugar levels.

Get enough slee

In Western countries, sleep is a very problematic thing. Sleep helps regulate stress, relieves health problems, and keeps us awake and vigorous. Try to get at least 8 hours of sleep a day. Turn off all electronic devices 30 minutes before going to bed and try to fall asleep before midnight.

Drink more water

A large part of your body is water. If you are dehydrated, your body will function abnormally, you will feel exhausted, and may cause serious health problems. Drink at least 8 glasses of water a day and try to avoid drinking coffee and other substances that can make you dehydrated.

Treat yourself better. After all, if you are not happy, then determining the priorities, making plans, establishing contacts, etc. will not make you successful. You must first make sure that you are not squeezed dry.

Learn to say “no”. Only you can set boundaries for yourself. Charity is great, and time is great, but you must first make sure that you are paying for yourself. If you don’t want to go to the party, if you can’t stand the fundraiser, and need time to recover, just say “no” politely.

Do something interesting. Do something that will satisfy you. Take a long hot bubble bath and read a book. Going to the beach alone on weekends, indulging in the state of not thinking about anything but my own business. You know what makes you happy. Remember to give yourself some time to enjoy.

If you want to succeed, you must have the enthusiasm and courage to create, and create what you want.
Keep trying, especially if you are not sure what your skills and strengths are. The more you try, the faster you can find what you love.
