Success starts with the mind. It is not some gift that is passed on to lucky ones during birth. Anyone can be successful as long as you put your mind to it. Everyone has the potential to be successful wherever they may choose to be. In sports, love, life, business or career, you must remember to set your mind to it.
Shane Radbone Allied Brands CEO is one of those people who tasted success at an early age. At only 20 years old, he already had played football for a national team in Australia and had owned his own business. He continues to help other people by giving talks on leadership, success and motivation. Below some of the tips that can make anyone successful:
- Don’t be afraid to make mistakes. Mistakes are the fuel of ideas. How do you think inventions are born? They are born out of experiments which means they had to undergo a lot of wrongs before that one right was made. Mistakes are normal, they allow you to think forward, have a backup plan and come up with an improved system for when you try again.
- Choose your friends wisely. It has been revealed in a study that your weight will most likely reflect the weight of those you hang around with. It also revealed that your income is most likely within the same bracket as five of your closest friends. Your friends and the people around you influence you strongly. So if you are going to be hanging out with a bunch of people, it makes sense to try find a motivated and inspired group than one who likes spending their days eating and watching TV.
- Get out there and exercise. Endorphins work wonders. If you want to be a success, you have to look like a success and feel like a success. Exercise does a great job of doing that. After a workout, you will be pumped up and ready to take on any challenge. You may even feel that you can conquer Mt. Everest. Take that energy and focus it to your work. You will surprise yourself at the amount of new ideas that you are able to conceive.
These three tips seem simple but they set the foundation for your success. Make them into habits and before you know it, the smell of success will just be around the corner.
