What is success? When will you know that you are successful?
Success seems to be a big word to many people and most of them believe that you have to be very smart, intelligent and you have to do big things or have tremendous amount of resources to become successful. The fact is that it isn’t true at all. Jim Rohn said that the formula for success is a few simple disciplines practiced every day.

What Does It Take To Achieve Success?
A recent interview with the principal of a high school in Australia that achieves outstanding academic success, the principal said: “If you want to get big results, then get the little stuff right. The success secrets are: have respect for your uniform and your school, watch the words coming out of your mouth, treat others well, and you have the potential to be the very best you can be.”
Success is not doing ten thousand things. Success is doing half of a dozen things ten thousand times. Jim Rohn said that “There are no new fundamentals, the truth is not new, it’s old. You must be suspicious to the guy that said ‘Hey, come over here, I will show you my new manufactured antiques’.” No, you cannot manufacture new antiques. Antiques are old.
You might already know all that you need to achieve success. You don’t really need new or more information, but you need a new plan of action. You see, if you keep adding more sugar into your cup of coffee without stirring it well, the coffee still wouldn’t taste sweet. All you need is to stir the sugar well before adding more into the cup.
Success doesn’t happen overnight; even overnight success takes many years to build up. You might have heard about someone selling a million copies of e-book per night and become millionaire, or someone makes millions of dollars per year on the internet just by spending few hours a day working but you haven’t heard about many years of hard work those people have been through and many hours per night they spent on mastering their craft before they become successful. Success is not always something you can see by your eyes.
Success is when you dedicate yourself to hard work, persistence and never give up until you accomplish your goal. Excellent is a commitment to completion. If you want to be successful in any area of your life, find out the “why”-the reasons why you want to succeed in that area because if you have strong enough reason, you will eventually become successful. The “why” is your lasting motivation.
Brian Tracy said: “The key to success is always the same: Decide exactly what you want, write it down, and make a plan to achieve it. Then take action immediately and do something every day to achieve your goal.”
Success is when you develop for yourself the mindset and the self-discipline. Jim Rohn said that success is not to be pursued; it is to be attracted by the person you become. If you want to have more, you have to become more. You might know that the majority of lottery winners go broke after few years winning the lottery and many people who go on diet programs gain all the weight back after all. Why is that? This is simply because they haven’t developed the mindset and the self-discipline for success. Success might take 5 to 20 years to achieve. Some people might say: “I will be 5 years older to achieve it.” Well, how much older will you be after 5 years anyway? The time is going to pass anyway. What important is where you will be after 5 years. Will you still be where you are right now today or you will be at the position you dream to be?
“We all must suffer two types of pain in life, the pain of discipline and the pain of regret. Discipline weighs ounces while regret weighs tons.”- Jim Rohn
Wouldn’t it be nice if you can buy success overnight? We have been bombarded by the media that we can achieve success in a short time without putting a lot of effort and we start to believe all the advertising such as: losing 30 pounds in 12 weeks or getting ripped and getting 6 packs abs within 6 weeks, etc… as long as you have access to major credit cards and make one single payment of $99. Those scams make us forget the value of hard work and dedication for success. I have seen many normal guys and bodybuilders who have achieved great muscular and ripped body. They all said that it’s the result of many years of hard training, strict diet and high self-discipline. Some guys train every day for 10 years or 30 years and never miss a day work-out.
To sum up, if you want to achieve success in any area of your life, decide exactly what you want and make a plan to achieve it, work on it every day and never ever give up. Remember winners never quit and quitters never win. If you can commit yourself to do that, you will be unstoppable.
Success is not the destination but the journey. For those that expect to achieve success overnight and don’t want to go through the pain, hard work and discipline of the journey, they will definitely never become successful and happy. Success is not what you achieve but the person you must become to achieve it. Happiness does not come from what you get; happiness comes from what you become.
I hope this article bring you back to the basis of success and help you to achieve more success in your life.
