7 key actions for long-term success

Find below 7 key actions that will lead you to success, no matter what!

  1. Discover yourself
"Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom"

Getting to know yourself is very important. Who hasn't ever wondered what to do for a living or what are we actually good at?

You just need to discover your strengths and weaknesses and explore your inclinations to answer these questions. Listen to your heart!

  1. Take responsibility for your life

"Define success on your own terms, achieve it by your own rules, and build a life you're proud to live"
Anne Sweeney

Taking responsibility requires a lot of effort, but once you've learned to do it, you will be able to control your life fully. No more excuses: take control of your life!

Only once you learn to be responsible for every decision you take, you will wake up to a new and better tomorrow.

  1. Don't forget that sometimes things don't work out well

A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing”
George Bernard Shaw

Life doesn't always go the way you planned, but this doesn’t mean that you should give up or stop pursuing your goals. The key is in planing, setting new goals and pursuing them while learning to improvise and adapt to circumstances.

And don’t be afraid of changes: impossible is nothing!

  1. Overcome obstacles by moving forward

I will persist until I succeed. Always will I take another step”
Og Mandino

We all face difficulties and obstacles, but what matters is how we see and overcome them, and whether we keep moving forward. Success is for those who don’t give up!

With effort and persistence, the most difficult situations can be a piece of cake!

  1. Perceive life as a journey

    “Life is a journey and it's about growing and changing and coming to terms with who and what you are and loving who and what you are”
Kelly McGillis

A journey full of dangers and twists, but also surprises and adventures that are totally worth it.

And remember that you choose where to lead your boat and how fast to row. Yes, there will be rapids and waterfalls on the way, you will sometimes run aground, but you will learn something new at every step and grow in experience.

  1. Don’t stress out if things don’t go well in the beginning

Take chances, make mistakes. That's how you grow. Pain nourishes your courage. You have to fail in order to practice being brave”
Mary Tyler Moore

Did you know that you don’t need to be an expert from the beginning if you want to achieve something? Remember that life is a journey: eventually, you will become one. All you have to do is to try.

Whichever your first step is – a speech, a presentation... anything – it may not be a roaring success, but it will with time and practice. Experience shows that practice makes perfect!

  1. Not perfect? Don't worry: you got it done

Strive for continuous improvement, instead of perfection”
Kim Collins

Or in other words, do not do things halfway. This is not a matter of perfection, it is a matter of getting things done. In today's world, finishing something may be even more important than reaching perfection.

Finish what you start by all means. Don’t quite like the result? No problem: next time you will do better. Slowly but surely.
