Finding a Formula for Success
Written by: Akua Hinds
July 28, 2017
These past two weeks have been dizzyingly interesting for me! I’ve spent a lot of time indulging in retail therapy, traveling, preparing for more travel, looking at potential business strategies, listening to music, performing music, researching online dating techniques, reading articles, and watching political soap operas unfold on live television news. I’ve had my eyes glued to CNN for the past two weeks, and if you have been watching it as well, then you know that there are obviously some successes and some defeats happening in America right now. I have been questioning what the formula to success is. I’ve recently come to realize that the formula to success is different for different people. What is required for me to be successful may not be what is required for you to be successful. For instance, someone who has a goal of becoming a hair stylist is not going to need to do the things I need to do to be successful at my goals and vice versa, because I don’t want to work as a hair stylist.
I was chatting with one of my friends members recently, and the subject of direct sales companies came up in the conversation. I mentioned to my friend that one of my family members was having much more success with the current direct sales company she was working for than she’d had in the previous company that she had represented. I had said that sometimes, people have to keep searching for the right fit in a company and when the right fit is there, then the formula for success will work successfully. The same applies to dating and love relationships. We all know that when a couple is trying to create a child together, they need to work together to successfully conceive. Nothing else can achieve that. And yet, there are people who think that success is about “luck” and “timing” and nothing else.
The dictionary defines success as the accomplishment of an aim or purpose. I feel that the way to achieve success is when a person or more than one person creates and follows a set formula and reaps the rewards of their efforts. For example, when I achieved good scores on my music exams that I’d taken, the reason why I had done well on them is because I had followed the formulas that were set out in the syllabuses. I followed my teachers’ guidelines and I knew what was expected of me if I was going to achieve a passing mark. Building a business, a relationship, a house, and anything else you want to achieve requires creating a blueprint/formula and following that plan. Of course, you might need to make changes to the plan, but having a plan and following through with it is key to accomplishing your goals.
If you feel that you need to make changes in your routine, it is vital that you listen to your intuition. There’s a reason why you need to make a change. If you’re feeling clueless about how to get out of your rut, it starts one effort at a time. As you get into the habit of developing a routine that works for you, it is good to track your steps towards success. Keep a notebook in which you write down your daily wins. You will feel more encouraged when you track your wins on a daily basis. After all, we live one day at a time, not one week, month, or year at a time. When you track your daily wins, you’ll feel more courageous about achieving bigger goals. Your goals can as small as following a plan to clean your bathroom two times per week, and as large as saving money each day to afford an annual vacation. Keep your wins in front of you, but be sure to focus on creating new wins each and every day; doing so will help you to grow your enthusiasm.
