10 Beliefs That Can Make Anyone Highly Successful…

At first glance, highly successful people may seem like they only succeeded in life because of their talent, their great connections or their family. However, that’s not the case at all! They manage to excel in their industry and make millions of dollars because of their amazing beliefs.

What are some of them? Here they are:

1. Forget fate! Focus on doing what you love.

If you want to be highly successful, don’t just rely on the concept of “destiny”. Don’t even think about fooling yourself by thinking that “fate” will let whatever’s meant to be to happen.

When Steve Jobs was fired from his own company, he could have just stopped. He could have just told other people that “it wasn’t meant to me.” But what did he do next? Because he was too focused in developing technology to help change the world, he launched NeXT, a new computer company, and he also launched Pixar Animation Studios.

“Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Don’t lose faith. I’m convinced the only thing that kept me going was that I loved what I did. You’ve got to find what you love.” –  Steve Jobs

2. Fail just means First Attempt In Learning.

Think of every highly successful person you know. Do you know any one of them who got lucky by being successful at the first try? 

Oprah Winfrey was fired from her first television job as an anchor.

Walt Disney was fired by a newspaper editor as he “had no good ideas.”

Vincent Van Gogh only sold one painting in his life. (The sale was even months before his death!)

So the next time you fail, keep going on. Highly successful people didn’t stop — and neither should you.

3. Never ever doubt yourself.

“Whether you think you can or you can’t, you are right.” – Henry Ford

The road to being a famous and successful person is tough. People will mock you. Strangers will make fun of you. And sometimes, even your loved ones who think they are protecting you will even try to talk you out of doing something that you’re passionate about.

Listen to what they’re saying, yes. But don’t take them to heart if you think that what they’re saying is already hurting you. Sometimes, you have to keep on believing in yourself, even if other people seem like they don’t.

4. Choose to continue, even if nothing seems to be working out.

“It is our choices, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.” – J. K Rowling

J.K. Rowling was working on her first ever Harry Potter novel when she was a single mother who was just living off welfare. Even so, she didn’t let this stop her. She finished the book and asked publishers all over the town. As she wasn’t well-known yet, publishing houses rejected her and even gave her harsh criticisms. Nothing seemed to be working out for her — but she still chose to continue and push through!

J.K. Rowling became the first-ever billionaire author in 2014.

5. Being a genius doesn’t automatically translate to being successful.

“I failed some subjects in exam but my friend passed it all. Now he is an engineer in Microsoft, and I am the owner in Microsoft.” – Bill Gates 

You don’t need to ace all your exams. You don’t need to top every class. And you don’t need to be a know-it-all just to be able to succeed in life. Talent and persistence can always trump intelligence any time.

6. If you really want it, you’ll find a way to get it.

Walt Disney asked the banks and other lending institutions to lend him money so that he could get started on his amusement theme park. Since he had no credit history and collateral, naturally, they all refused him. He didn’t stop there. He took a loan from his own life insurance policy and made history.

7. Take calculated risks.

“Don’t be afraid to give up the good to go for the great.” – John D. Rockefeller

Chess wonder kid Magnus Carlesen decided to be a professional chess player when he realized that he was “quite good.” He didn’t make the decision out of a whim – he initially assessed his abilities and decided based on that fact.

8. Know what you’re getting into.

“If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough.” – Albert Einstein

Self-made millionaire and highly successful person Warren Buffett always believes that you should never invest in a business that you don’t understand. Simply put, if you don’t know how something operates, how can you figure out how you can make money off of it?

9. Service will always beat selfishness in the long run.

Being selfish and being stingy can help make you money at first but it’s not really a good plan for the long-term.

Focus on serving other people, on helping them and even on giving them some of your resources. You may not believe in good karma, but believe in this list of highly successful people who give back and continue to succeed:

– Mark Zuckerberg gave nearly $500 million gift to the Silicon Valley Community Foundation.

– Billionaire Nike founder Phil Knight and his wife Penelope pledged $125 million to Oregon Health & Science University

– Paul Allen pledged $300 million to give to the Institute for Brain Science

10. Don’t wait. Create.

“The elevator to success is out of order. You’ll have to use the stairs…. One step at a time.” – Joe Girard 

KFC Founder Colonel Sanders drove all over America and offered his fried chicken recipe for a certain percentage of the sales. He knocked on their doors, slept on his car and wore his white suit even though he already got 1,009 refusals. On the 1,010th time, he finally got a “yes”.

Engrave these beliefs into your heart and don’t stop at anything to reach your goals.

Who knows? You can also be a highly successful person soon.

How To Be Successful In Life…

13 Tips From The World’s Most Successful People

No matter how old you are, where you’re from or what you do for a living, we all share something in common—a desire to be successful. Each person’s definition of success is different, however, as some may define success as being a loving and faithful spouse or a caring and responsible parent, while most people would equate success with wealth, fame, and power.

We all want to achieve success so we could live a comfortable life—have financial freedom, drive a nice car, and live in a beautiful house. However, although success can be achieved, it does not come easy.

There are a lot of tips and strategies out there on how to be successful in life, but I am still a firm believer that there is no better way to succeed than to follow that footsteps of those who have already done so. Here are 13 success tips from some of the world’s most successful and renowned people:

1.Think big.

The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark.

From Michelangelo Buonarroti, Great Renaissance Artist: “The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark.”

2.Find what you love to do and do it.

You know you are on the road to success if you would do your job, and not be paid for it.

From Oprah Winfrey, Media Mogul: “You know you are on the road to success if you would do your job and not be paid for it.”

3. Learn how to balance life.

There is an immutable conflict at work in life and in business, a constant battle between peace and chaos. Neither can be mastered, but both can be influenced. How you go about that is the key to success.

From Phil Knight, CEO of Nike Inc.: “There is an immutable conflict at work in life and in business, a constant battle between peace and chaos. Neither can be mastered, but both can be influenced. How you go about that is the key to success.”

4. Do not be afraid of failure.

Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently.

From Henry Ford, Founder of Ford Motors: “Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently.”

5. Have an unwavering resolution to succeed.

From Colonel Sanders, Founder of KFC: “I made a resolve then that I was going to amount to something if I could. And no hours, nor amount of labor, nor amount of money would deter me from giving the best that there was in me. And I have done that ever since, and I win by it. I know.”

6. Be a man of action.

It had long since come to my attention that people of accomplishment rarely sat back and let things happen to them. They went out and happened to things.

 

From Leonardo da Vinci, Renaissance Genius :“It had long since come to my attention that people of accomplishment rarely sat back and let things happen to them. They went out and happened to things.”

The most important single ingredient in the formula of success is knowing how to get along with people.

From Theodore Roosevelt, 26th President of America: “The most important single ingredient in the formula of success is knowing how to get along with people.”

8. Don’t be afraid of introducing new ideas.

A person with a new idea is a crank until the idea succeeds.

From Mark Twain, Famed Author: “A person with a new idea is a crank until the idea succeeds.”

If you can dream it, you can do it.

From Walter Disney, Founder of Walt Disney Company: “If you can dream it, you can do it.”

From Abraham Lincoln, 16th President of America: “Let no feeling of discouragement prey upon you, and in the end you are sure to succeed.”

Unless you are willing to drench yourself in your work beyond the capacity of the average man, you are just not cut out for positions at the top.

From JC Penny, Founder of JC Penney Inc.: “Unless you are willing to drench yourself in your work beyond the capacity of the average man, you are just not cut out for positions at the top.”
