Make It Happen

It takes more than luck to succeed in life. To get whatever it is you want out of life, involves planning and work to achieve your goals.

Here are 5 simple tips on how to set your own plan for success:

1. Set Your Goals

This is your goal in life, and even though it may seem distant from your reality right now, think about it. Figure out what it is you want, or who you want to be, or the way of life you want. These can be specific action plans, or they can be general goals if you haven’t figure it out yet. Setting out your goals will give you a general direction to aim for, and at least you will know the knowledge or skills you need to develop in order to reach your goals.

2. Take It One Step At A Time

Goals are achieved one step at a time. It is unrealistic to expect to reach the level of success you want immediately. There are no short cuts, except perhaps for the lucky few. Every person who has reached the pinnacle of success has paid their dues. Most actors on the big screen persevered before they got their big break. Every CEO I’ve met worked their way up through the ranks of their organization, and have faced many setbacks and challenges in their journey.

3. Create Your List

Writing it down forces you to focus. You can take your goals and break it down into a series of targets. You could break it down into 1 year target, or a 5 year plan, whichever it is, write it down. You can have two lists, one for your personal life and one for work. Keeping a list in your head won’t cut it. We both know the minute life intrudes, you’re going to forget about everything and just do whatever it takes to get you through the day.

4. Give Yourself Some Flexibility

Don’t worry if you have to change your life plan. In life, things happen and no plan ever survives contact with life. Review it, make whatever adjustments you need and keep going. Your goal in life is still your target. All you are doing is taking a slightly different route. For example, getting married changed some of my priorities, and having kids meant I have to revised my plans. But I still want to achieve my life’s goal, that hasn’t changed.

5. Don’t Depend On Luck Or Fate

They are no short-cuts, fortune isn’t going to dump a million dollars in your lap. No one is going to come along and give you a truck-load of money to start your own business. Sure, it might happen, and if it did it is because you have a reputation for delivering results. L.U.C.K. means laboring under correct knowledge. All your planning means you have prepared yourself to make the most of what life has sent your way.

In The End

If you want to achieve the sort of life you want, you have to set your goals. No one travels without a map, and just having a general idea in your head means you are not serious about what you want. Be objective, be clear on what you want. Stay focus and make it happen for you.
