The Equation to Success

November 13, 2013

A positive attitude without purpose and action is dead.  Long ago, I learned that while positive thinking is paramount to overcoming adversity and moving forward in your life, there are other factors that determine success. Without a clear purpose and the ability to be passionate about that purpose, most people live by default, taking whatever comes their way without realizing that they have accepted mediocrity. But there is so much more to life! So how do you find your purpose? Here are some questions to ask yourself:

  • What do you love to do?
  • What makes you feel whole and connected inside?
  • What dreams did you have that you have given up on because you felt obligated to conform to societal norms?
  • If you could have your dream job or live the life of your dreams, what would you be doing?

Don’t censor yourself.  Keep an open-mind while considering the answers to these questions.  Maybe you already know your purpose but you just haven’t been able or willing for some reason to take the initiative to act on it.  Did you know that you can take daily action to move toward the realization of your dreams?  You can keep your current job while you move slowly and persistently toward the life you have always dreamed about.

Do you want to go back to school?  Do you want to see the world? Do you want to start you own home-based business?  Once you have an idea about what you are passionate about and want to do, write down one action you can take TODAY to begin your new amazing life.  Make a committment to yourself to spend 20 minutes each day reflecting on what you want and taking one action step toward your dream.  Daily action equals weekly action, which equals monthly action, which equals an entire year of action.  You can not fail to succeed when you operate with a positive attitude, a clear purpose and the willingness to take the daily action necessary to reach your dreams.  The truth is the equation to success looks just like this;  Optimism+Purpose and Passion+Daily Action=SUCCESS!
