The story of success last longer when you begin early, and who said that success is measured with the amount of money you have? It is measured by accomplishing your purpose in life, with or without the money. In most cases, it comes with the money.
To be successful, you must have the right path and making the right steps, these steps begin as early as you realize that you have a goal in life. They include;
1. Having your very own vision in life
We all have something defined for us before we get our place. Mom, wants you to be a news anchor, dad a doctor your aunt suggests you become an accountant and so on.
Only you know what you want to be, it’s a high time you make up your mind and be what you want to be what is in your heart not the idea was given to you by the people around you.
2. Set your prioritize straight
Temptations will call you left right and centre but it’s up to you ta make a decision on what is important to you, don’t let the extracurricular activities disrupt your main goal.
We are not saying that you should not have fun, come on ‘all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy‘, we don’t want you to be dull.
Just have enough fun and enough serious to reach your goal.
3. Have goals
It is wise to have both short term and long term goals. Yes, you want to be a doctor but what will you do in the journey of being a doctor that will help your journey of being a doctor attainable? We call that short term goal
Eg for you to become a doctor you have to go to med school…. fine, you’re in med school but are you doing well in school or are you the one retaking classes?
Learn what other people in your field are doing, interact with the professionals and aspiring professionals. Know what and how they think so that you can adjust your thinking and also bring new ideas.
You just never know about tomorrow, you may be taking to your next employer. You can also strive to find new friends to challenge one another and also to support one another.
5. Celebrate yourself
Always keep track of your achievements and celebrate yourself every time you have accomplished something or have met your target. It motivates you to continue working hard.
