What is it that separates an average person from a successful person? With everyone wanting to be successful but only about 5% of the population actually achieving success. Why is it that some people are able to achieve success while others are barely able to get by?
If you were to ask the average person what success looks like to them most of them would answer with I don’t know. What does success look like to you? All successful people have an aim and a purpose and are willing to die for it they know exactly what they want out of life. The definition of success is the accomplishment of an aim or purpose. Most people go through life aiming at nothing and they hit it every single time. So let me ask you this what would you have to achieve or do for you to consider yourself successful. The first step towards success is figuring out what you consider to be success there is no right answer for success but not having an answer you are sure to never be successful.

There are four areas I believe that everyone must have in order for them to be truly successful. First Mentally: Everyone no matter how much money you have or how popular you are everyone wants to have a piece of mind. That feeling that you have at the end of the day when everything feels right and you are at peace with yourself when you have no stress, fear or doubt. Second: relationships you want to not only be rich, but also have rich relationships with the people you love. Love is something that every human feels from the second they are born. that feeling is something they continue to search for their entire life. Third spiritually having that connection with God and using the talents and gifts that he gave you. God’s gift to you was life your gift to God is to use the gifts he gave you. If you do not believe in God than figuring out your gifts and finding your meaning. Having a purpose and something that only you and no one else can do as good as you. What exactly is your unique purpose what is your meaning. The fourth area would be financial freedom. Over 90% of families stress about money and most problems are caused because of financial difficulties.

The first step towards living your definition of a perfect life is being able to visualize what that would look like in all four areas of your life. What would it look like for you to have a peace of mind? Where would you be? What would you be doing? Who would you be with? The easiest way for you to imagine what it would look like is look back on a time in your life when you were at piece. Remember exactly how you felt and what happened for you to be in that state. If you are able to remember how you got there you are able to get back that same spot.

What is your idea of having a perfect relationship? What would they look like? What would they do? Where would you guys meet? What personality traits would the person have? Most people do not realize you attract what you think about (we will talk about that later) so by being able to not only describe your perfect relationship, but to be able to visualize it as well. You will be able to attract your perfect relationship. People don’t visualize their perfect relationship so since they don’t know what that looks like that’s why most people settle for the one they have. If you don’t know there is something better for you out there than why would people leave there current relationship. The first step to creating something in reality is to first create it in your mind.

What is one thing that you do better than anyone else? What is one thing that comes easy to you that may not come easy to others? What is one thing that you can do all day every day without getting tired and wanting more of it? Finding your purpose is one of the hardest things anyone can ever do. That is why if you ask the average person what is your purpose in life they cannot tell you. That is why the average person feels they have no purpose and that is why the average person will spend all their life asking “why am I here” and the successful person will show you why they are here. What makes you laugh, what makes you cry, and what do you dream about? When you are able to answer those three questions you know you purpose.
"That is why the average person feels they have no purpose and that is why the average person will spend all their life asking “why am I here” and the successful person will show you why they are here."
Last but not least how much money would you have to make for you to consider yourself financially successful? If you say I want to be a millionaire, why? If you had a million dollars why would that amount make you successful? You must be able to have an exact number and be able to know why you want that number. What would your life look like with that exact number? How would your life be different from making a million dollars a year then making one hundred thousand dollars a year? Besides the obvious being the difference in amount which one would YOU need to be making to consider yourself successful and why? When you are able to define which one you would need to call yourself successful your answer may surprise you.
How will you ever be successful if you don’t know what success looks like to you? When you are able to visualize what success looks like to you in all four areas you have already done more than the average person has done.
