Success is planted when you start to dream about the things that make you happy. Only you know what that is. Really think about what would make you the most happy. Write it all down. Stare at what you wrote every day! I suggest the fridge because you will visit it multiple times a day. That gives you multiple chances to see it, stay motivated, and keep that vision fresh in your head. Dreams are the tiny seeds from which tomorrows grow!
I wish I could say that you can achieve those desires just by staring at what you wrote down. That is however not the case. When you see what your dreams are, when they are right in front of you written down, that should motivate you! Motivation must be accompanied by action. Once you know what your aiming for, whatever the goal might be, it takes action to achieve it. You have to try! Why not try? Failure? There is no such thing as failure. When you "fail" you are learning and knowledge is power! Use what you have learned to your advantage.
For those of you who are afraid of failure I encourage you to read the story of Milton Hershey (Hershey Candy). He failed and lost all his money multiple times before he finally discovered chocolate bars. It's an incredible story of perserverance. If you ever get a chance to go to Hershey, PA stop by his factory. Do not fear failure. Failure will not hurt you. Failure might set you back, but set you back with new knowledge that will help you in the future. It's all in your outlook.
Thinking positive is also a critical key to success. Positive thinking brings positive results. If you are always Debbie Downer, angry and upset all the time, or always down on yourself then of course you will NOT succeed. The vibes that you put out into the universe are the vibes that you will get back. It's the law of attraction. It's real. Google it. Or read the book The Secret.
I encourage you to
1. Start dreaming about what is going to make you the happiest.
2. Write down all your dreams and goals
3. Take action and keep motivated.
There is no reason you can't be happy and create your own paradise!
