Find something that you like in your job.
The more things you like with your job, the more you’ll like your job. This may seems complicated, but if you can find something to like with you job, your job will be a lot easier.
“Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.”
– Albert Schweitzer
So, if you want to be successful in your job, you need to like something about what you do.
Too many people want to do only what they like. They focus on one or two things and just want to do that. It’s an impossible dream.
Yes you could end up doing something you really like, but there’s always a little something in it that you don’t. If you can find the will to do what you don’t like, it will become a drive into becoming the best in that fields.
Confidence is build. Usually with a lot of mistake and hard work.
To build your confidence, you’ll have to face your fear and take action. You know what needs to be done.
“Action is a great restorer and builder of confidence. Inaction is not only the result, but the cause, of fear. Perhaps the action you take will be successful; perhaps different action or adjustments will have to follow. But any action is better than no action at all.”
– Norman Vincent Peale
You’ll make mistakes, we all do. It’s what you do next that matters.
After a mistake, adjust and keep going on.
“Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.”
– Dale Carnegie
There is no good anger.
If you think you need anger to drive you into action, those actions will be tinted with that bad energy.
“You will not be punished for your anger, you will be punished by your anger.”
You build your drive without anger. You can build a positive action drive with your dream to fuel them.
“Every day we have plenty of opportunities to get angry, stressed or offended. But what you’re doing when you indulge these negative emotions is giving something outside yourself power over your happiness. You can choose to not let little things upset you.”
– Joel Osteen
Little or big, nothing should drive you into rage or anger. Stay out of those negative emotions and focus on solution to keep yourself free from them.
Your dream is giving you the fuel to drive your action. Don’t let anger mix into those actions. Keep them clean and positive.
“Anger is an acid that can do more harm to the vessel in which it is stored than to anything on which it is poured.”
– Mark Twain
Nothing great is accomplish without taking action.
Be among the doers.
“A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.”
– George Bernard Shaw
There’s too many lookers in this world. Too many people waiting for someone else to do what they should have done.
If you expect someone else to do it for you, you’ll never get what you really want.
“It takes half your life before you discover life is a do-it-yourself project.”
– Napoleon Hill
Wake up! Take charge of your success!
Know yourself. Grow into what you dream and act upon.
“Do you want to know who you are? Don’t ask. Act! Action will delineate and define you.”
– Thomas Jefferson
Your actions will determined your legacy. You legacy is always about what you did. Be a doers and leave your mark.
“A leader should demonstrate his thoughts and opinions through his actions, not through his words.”
– Jack Weatherford
History never remember the followers, it remembers the leaders. Leaders take action and move on.
If you take action and move on, you have better chances to become a leader.
“A true leader has the confidence to stand alone, the courage to make tough decisions, and the compassion to listen to the needs of others. He does not set out to be a leader, but becomes one by the equality of his actions and the integrity of his intent.”
– Douglas MacArthur
Most leader don’t intent on becoming one at the beginning. They become because they took actions and inspire others with it.
Do your best every day. Do better the next day. And keep going on.
Be nice with others that you can help. Be someone they can come up to and find great answers. Don’t expect a return and you’ll get one.
You want to help others. You think you have something to bring them.
Save your energy for the right people.
When you open yourself to someone and find out that they only want to take your dreams down. Stop, don’t argue, smile and pray for them. Then go away.
If they don’t have an open mind to what you are saying, then you should not waste your time with them.
Pray for them and hope that someday they will open themselves to what you think. If they don’t it will be their choice.
You can’t help everyone.
Some people will be open to you and others will not.
Focus on those who will be listening.
Ask and you shall receive.
You need to take action on what you want. Without the action, it’s only a wish. Wish can come true, but it’s always better to take action on it.
Keeping your wish alive is also important. The moment that you start to doubt it, you are working against yourself.
Everything is better when it’s simple.
“Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.”
– Albert Einstein
Here’s my simple asking technique:
- Dream (Go Big)
- Write it down (with a date)
- Do (Take action)
Don’t wait for anything, keep on doing and doing. Adjust as you go along. There’s always something to adjust. As you do, always keep your eyes on the Dream.
What road you take to get there doesn’t matter. There’s always many ways to get there.
