When people see women that have it all, they often call them “lucky”. Whether a woman’s success is in having a passionate marriage and happy children or having a high powered career or a gorgeous body that appears flawless to most, luck is usually not the answer to her success.
It really doesn’t matter what you consider success; ultimately success is being able to set goals and accomplish them. Success is also being able to identify what you want and formulate a strategy to get it done. Many people spend a lot of time talking about what they want or what they are going to do. Unless tangible steps are taken towards the accomplishment of a goal, the goal is actually just a wish or a fantasy.
The winners in life know the rules of the game and have a plan. Whether you want to begin a new career, shed pounds or find the love of your life, consider these characteristics which Dr. Phil says are common to people who succeed:
Have a vision.
Champions get what they want because they know what they want. They have a vision that keeps them motivated and efficiently on track. They see it, feel it, and experience it in their minds and hearts. What is success for you? You won’t get there without knowing what it feels and looks like.
Make a strategy.
People who consistently win have a clear and thoughtful strategy. They know what they need to do and when they need to do it. They write it down so they stay on course and avoid any alternative that does not get them closer to the finish line.
Find a passion.
Are you excited to get up in the morning? People with a passion are, and they’re energized about what they are doing. You need to live and breathe what it is that you want, and be passionately invested in both the journey and the goal.
