Marc Bilodeau started his blog to become a better writer, however, it has evolved into a place where he shares personal thoughts, experiences, and words of subjective wisdom. He is not an expert or certified in any of the subject matter, but hopes that his experiences and thoughts may help others by invoking internal thinking, or inspire others to try new things.

please leaders or a fluent people successful simply because they have notoriety influence or wealth worthless people aren't feeling fulfil doing this they do to maintain their level of perceived success or they really successful what a success mean is success i fancy title b house power money but good relationship in your own company or extensive network of friends or followers certainly isn't anything raw was striving for any of those however success having a big house with a crippling mortgage company that's not profitable a job that one hates or a relationship between incompatible people the dictionary has several meanings for the word success one definition of success is the attainment of popularity or profit
fortunately many people directly relate success to how much money one has or how well known someone becomes fortunately another definition seems more appropriate to define success as the accomplishment of an aim or purpose define your own success achieving success requires one too where many hats your talents know how problem solving skills and the network of people are your toolbox one person who will have the passion and conviction to navigate through all the obstacles to achieve a goal you when a team is involved the only your passion and conviction to navigate the many challenges and hurdles even if only you on the journey that same passion and conviction are critical for success however no amount skills or passion will achieve success without clearly defining a goal and purpose
first it has to be within your power to achieve the goal either by yourself or with a group of people and she will goals have to care to risks they are well defined and they can be split into smaller tasks otherwise goal be too broad or vague which usually results in failure the plan and effort discipline and efforts are fundamental for success however those that only put in some effort will likely never achieve the level of success they desire being fully engaged in your work is an absolute requirement success requires consistent effort throughout the journey
furthermore without discipline to get through the particularly hard or tedious tasks will lead to a sub par outcome the secret here is always have well defined tasks that produce specific results everything you do is built upon achieving the overall goal if a task doesn't contribute towards a goal then it should be a priority or possibly done at all unfortunately is tempting to start with the tasks that are fun or more interesting over tasks that need to be done first was determine if the task at hand is the most important task to do if not put it aside and do the most important task first moreover i was put in the same effort to do it right the first time remain focused focuses the ability concentrate on task at hand unfortunately there are many things i can break our concentration application notifications noisy environment it work area are some examples of things i can hinder our focus
furthermore our own minds can also break our focus with rain of thoughts and concerns fortunately someone can learn to focus is a muscle that can improve with practice furthermore each person has different preferences and habits to get them into the zone remove any clutter from the work area clutter is distracting does includes your physical man virtual works turn off or silence notifications from all applications while working clean and as your workspace by removing anything that is unnecessary for your work single tasking do not multitask people cannot multitask the results are always some power do one task at a time for larger tax breaks up into smaller manageable tasks and do them in order to help build momentum momentum helped keep us motivated motivation is a must to reach our goals don't try to keep everything in your head developing external brain
you realize everyday tools like a no pad or your smartphone to stay organised take lots of notes and organize your thoughts frequently work in a quiet place noises are distracting your work space be quiet if this is impossible use headphones while listening to music i personally like ambien music and vocal trance look for opportunities there isn't a single event that transforms a person from unsuccessful to success success doesn't happen overnight success is built upon a person's ability to do work effectively and to capitalize on opportunities that further their goals such as an opportunity presents itself mother times it only appears after lots of work in collaboration with others however opportunities can be distracting and lead you away from your goal therefore each opportunity must be carefully considered sometimes they reveal a new path to your goals before acting
an opportunity is critical to consider the pros and cons it's ok to make mistakes mistakes tools to help identify other opportunities and help improve our decision the king abilities avoid the sun cost fallacy people have an aversion to loss giving up is associated with failure for some people failing and giving up our embarrassing people don't wanna be wrong in giving up can feel like that as a result some people keep pushing forward instead of giving up giving up doesn't make a person wrong sometimes it is the right thing to do a scene many people continue to push toward a goal when its clear from outside perspective that they will never usually the reason they keep going is because they have spent a lot of time possibly money and effort this trap is a recipe for failure as it narrows are guess and thinking on what is happening now instead of the big picture when things are tough
or to be more aware of the results of the immediate efforts and how they affect near term results any overall goal in the long run the key take away is to identify when things are going well and be willing to stop or pivot some new regardless of how much time and effort have been invested files arts success is objective as we all have different goals in life regardless of those guys all it is important that we are doing them for the right reason we shouldn't do things for the sake of how others will perceive us truly successful person will work towards their own goals that shape and enhance their own life no matter what others think success never happens overnight each day take some time to work a little more on tasks that move closer toward your goals enjoy each step and fine eating and what you're doing successful people fine meaning in their work have a sense of accomplishment focus on the tasks at hand
