“Success means having the courage, the determination, and the will to become the person you believe you were meant to be.” - George Sheehan
You must take actions that are congruent with your wishes in order to translate them into reality, but the first step toward success is to have that dream—your own dream, not anyone else's ideas about what is best for you in life—and then absolutely commit yourself to its achievement.
2. An Open Mind
You need to be open-minded—that is, you need to be ready and willing to receive what the universe (you might personally prefer to say God) has in store for you. Some people call this principle the Law of Attraction, but whatever you call it, it is quite true that you will absolutely set in motion unseen forces which will definitely assist you with the manifestation of your dream.
Translating your dream into a plan and then constantly taking actions, each and every day, that move you in the direction of your goal is what will get you there in the end. No matter how big you are aiming, you can succeed if you keep your destination in mind and then continually take actions that move you toward the goal.
If you really want success, in whatever field of endeavour you are pursuing, you can have it—yes, you can! But you need to be prepared to work for it—to do whatever it takes. Finding out and then doing whatever it takes is the quality of flexibility.
It is truly amazing what you can do when you believe in your own ability. That's why you need faith—a deep down, dogged belief that, regardless of the evidence, you are going to make it! You are going to achieve what you have set out to accomplish. You are going to make a difference in this life.
Thankfulness is an attitude and an important key to success. It is an attitude we all need to learn to acquire and apply in living our lives. If you can learn to make gratitude a part of the way you live your daily life, you will be simply amazed at how the attitude of the people around you will change, too.
It is impossible to think about passion without reference to the heart. Deep within your heart, there is a desire, the pursuit of which will bring you all the happiness, success, and fulfillment you really want. To find your passion is to identify your own unique purpose in life; to live your passion is to achieve what I like to refer to as The Deepest Desire of Your Heart.
