Success is 99% Hard Work.


You may feel like arguing with that. You may feel that success is down to luck or talent, however, when you look at the world’s highly successful people they have all worked hard to get where they are.
Of course it helps if you are naturally good at something and you can earn a decent income from it. For most of us we have to get good at something that will earn us money, in turn that may enable us to be successful at something we love to do, that doesn’t actually pay the bills.
I guess what I’m saying here is that success isn’t all about money.
Success can come in many shapes and forms. Making a tasty meal for the family every night is success. Maintaining a loving relationship is success. Playing a musical instrument or sport is success, how well you do it is up to you and at what level you feel successful is also up to you. But don’t lose sight of the fact that to do it at all is success.
If you are trying to get your life back on track it is easier and more ‘successful’ to make one change at a time. This is where the hard work comes in. To get your life back on track you usually need to change or stop something that you do or do something that you don’t do.
You may have missed a promotion at work, ask for a mentoring session with your supervisor, find out what you need to learn or do differently to make sure you don’t miss out next time round. Then practice until you feel confident with your new knowledge and skills.
You might begin by identifying a mistake you have made, what caused the mistake, how can you learn from it and what can you do to make sure you don’t make the same mistake again. E.g. maybe you are too impulsive and get off on the wrong foot.
Remember, if you don’t make mistakes you don’t get the opportunity to learn.
Once you have identified a mistake think about ways you could have done things differently, how could you have behaved, what could you have said, what didn’t you know at the time? Then choose one thing that would make a difference and practice it, keep on working on it until it becomes part of how you operate.
