When Warren Buffet was asked once about his success, he gave credit to the stack of books from which he never missed reading 500 pages everyday. He believes in building knowledge like compound interest. Warren Buffet, as we all know, is one of the most successful investors in the world and the second wealthiest person in the United States, as of March 2017. Being successful in whatever you are doing doesn’t mean being better than anyone else, but constantly improving on yourself. Here is a list of ten things that will win you more success.
Checklist to Become 10 Times More Successful
1. Be Passionate for Your Work
“Stop chasing the money and start chasing the passion.”
~ Tony Hsieh.
Those who don’t have any passion in whatever they are doing, can’t expect themselves to be successful. Passion always comes from within and lives with you every single day.
2. Always Plan Ahead
Planning ahead always gives us something to be excited about. It gives us something to think about, reminding us of why we are working so hard in the first place.
3. Work Hard While Having Fun
It is an inevitable truth that to achieve success, one has to put in hard work. However, it is equally important to have fun while working, to avoid burnout. Try to be “work frolics” instead of workaholics.
4. Be the Best in What You Do
Once you decide what you want to accomplish, dedicate yourself completely to it. Try to be nothing less than the best at whatever you set your mind to. For this purpose, you’ll need to invest your time and energy every single day. But this is what will separate you from the rest of the crowd.
5. Stay Specifically Focused
We all know that focus is the key to success in achieving your goals. However, to be successful; it is really important to focus and specialize in a certain area and build your expertise rather than trying to be a Jack of all trades.
6. Push Yourself Out of your Comfort Zone
Many limiting beliefs that you have about yourself, restrict you from your achieving that much deserved success. To live a life of your dreams, understand your insecurities and overcome them by pushing yourself forward through shyness, doubts, and fear, outside of your comfort zone.
7. Aim at Serving Others
When you serve others with your knowledge, wisdom and skills, you let them have the tools to be successful as well. This is the most fulfilling aspect of any job in the world.
8. Try to Come up with New Ideas
Coming up with new ideas is a reflection of an individual’s creativity. Don’t worry if you are having a problem because big ideas come from everyday problems. You just need to be observant, listen and connect one thing to another, for real ideas lighting the way to success.
9. Put Your Ideas into Actions
A lot of great ideas are a waste when limited to a piece of paper. Once you have ideas, it is time to put them into action, which is actually the secret to success. Be creative in implementing those ideas.
This is the last but the most important rule of success. Every single day, you need to commit yourself to accomplishing your goals. No matter how tough things get, keep on going.
All the best!
