How to Become a Successful Person


What is success? Success is when you bask the glory. It is definitely success when you are getting some remarkable results. How to become a successful person? I do believe there are three important things: to know definition of your purpose, to know what your goals is and have a burning desire to accomplish that goals.

Do you know, what is your pre-encoded purpose? It is simple to know it from your context. E.g. if you handle something well and like to do it the most, it seems that it is your purpose to do it. If you still have not found your purpose, seize any opportunities to try something different from what you do everyday. If you find it, you will know and can loudly say to yourself: “This is my purpose to do this”. You can also refer to method proposed by Steve Pavlina in post “How to discover your life purpose in about 20 minutes” – I have tried it, and it works! Write down your propose and refer anytime you are setting goals and doing important decisions.

Do you know exactly what you want? What do you want to achieve in 5 years? How do you imagine yourself in one year? What will you do, if you know that in 6 months a thunderbolt will kill you? Is it the same thing which you are doing right now? If it is not so, you have to change your life. Set yourself a target you want to achieve and start going right now! You can refer to “How to Set Goals” manual at wikiHow. And even if you are not certain about is it the best target you can set or not – set it anyway. To have any goal set by yourself is better that not to set anything. If you do not do this, somebody else, like your boss, friend, partner, stranger or society will do it for you.

When you know your purpose and you have set a goal, do not procrastinate – do it now! Don’t play it safe, every day take any chance to move to your target. Imagine how you will feel, when you achieve it. Everyone should see a fire in your eyes. Feed yourself with motivation material, like this post, every morning on breakfast – and success will come. You can inspire youself by ideas from article “Cultivating Burning Desire“.
So if you want to be a successful person – now you know what to do. If it is still not clear – possibly you have to reread this again :) . Do it now!

It’s only to say and listen but in reality it is too harsh……So even some of You believe.Don’t even try to follw it if U r completely devoted otherwise U’ll leave lots of important tings in YOur life.Its not to easy….

#17 anonymous on 10.28.08 at 9:28 am

Action is louder than word. Sometime it is easy to say but it is adversely to put it into action.

#18 Khalid Gul on 10.31.08 at 11:17 am

Impressive & pretty convince with this article……. I believe self analyses & self control is the most demandable element to understand about yourself, Specially when if you try to handle your own attitude towards an awkward response, more importantly when if you are in a crowed & someone is trying to rundown you by coming up with some awkwardly unbearable comments about you & you feel like a pressure cooker which might burst any moment but you keep a tight grip to control on your nervous & just have a look into his eyes & suddenly brings a smile on your face… That is the exact moment of your SUCCESS because “Respecting your opponents is the first step towards understanding them”!!!!

#22 pradeep dhar dwivedi on 01.06.09 at 7:34 am

I here by that this recommendations is really very worthwhile for every doubtful person who is not getting his goal due to lack of important way.so please definitely you must have to study this suggestion.

#23 Lenin on 01.23.09 at 6:40 pm

It works but not in every cases. You need to have enough time to full fill your goal. I want to be a famous World champion fighter but it only became a dream. As people says dreams never come true. I am trying to go where my heart takes me. But, no use. It does not help me to reach my goal. I am already 25 years old. I am crazy of becoming a World champion fighter but do not know when the day will come.

#24 Shaolin on 01.23.09 at 6:46 pm

Hello, guys, these are all fake. One thing remember that “Money hai to Honey hai”. If you have money then you can achieve your goal or else forget it. Don’t listen to others. It will just give you happiness for a few seconds. But when you will come out from your dreams and get in to the real world then you will realise.

#25 aishwarya on 02.05.09 at 3:55 pm

hey guys,
These doesnot work on every cases….but they get success in only some cases….so follow ur soul and think a lot before doing anything…….
that will lead us all to success…

#34 Dhiraj Joshi on 05.15.09 at 11:20 pm

Thanks for that lovely and meaningful blog,
but I also think that its all about the colors of the life, “If there are 365 days then there should be 365 colors, now its upto an individual that what color he/she will choose”. If an individual can put his/her efforts toward the right direction, the chances will become high to achieve the desired target.

#35 racheal on 05.26.09 at 10:25 am

good…it’s basic of our daily…every day we r someone….the most important is desire….

#36 shahid khan on 06.03.09 at 3:51 pm

there r more things are written by great thoughts but the walking on is very difficult and manage ourself to do things well. every one understand just i think this article is reminder for us .we knew already things that what we can do and how but we do not follow by lazying ourself.

#37 imran karim on 06.03.09 at 4:07 pm

a person who dnt know where exactly he is going reaches to no where.so it is necessary to select the right way ,destination and direction in order to becom successful in life.

#38 imran karim on 06.03.09 at 4:11 pm

thanks for such kind of gret advices

#39 Asif Azmi on 06.09.09 at 6:05 am

This is good to learn but don’t have any practicle advise which may work in field, need to be realistic like should we deal seprately to desire and emotion somtimes we need to deal it seprately.

#40 jawed on 06.14.09 at 2:03 pm

i think every person is different in his/her own way motivational topics are good to follow but it requires dedication from the person or its no use.just try to be devoted to whatever ur goal & u will see sucess sooner.bcoz its ultimately we who decides how much we want in life.if u want more u have to give more of urself to that work.

#41 Likingo Michael on 06.23.09 at 1:33 pm

A good attitude turns your success switches ON.
A good attitude is not an accident, it is a habit and a skill that you have to build for yourself.
Spend your time doing something of value.
All lasting success is built on positive values.
Practice every day, keeping a positive attitude.
Never quit, Never stop, Never give up.

#42 Sweetia on 06.24.09 at 2:19 am

Ladies and gentlemen…If there is no purpose then what are we looking up to?

#43 Sameera: on 07.18.09 at 7:17 pm

Hi! This is a very useful article. A person who wants to become some thing in his life’ searches for such articles to motivate him self… never believe in comments of such people who refer these articles as fake, because I think they are not interested to achieve some thing except of discouraging others…. so, keep on reading articles… because reading some thing is good to motivate your self than remaining idle.

#59 Mikhail Subach on 03.27.10 at 7:01 am

If you want to make you children successful, you have to become a successful person first. Find out, what you like to do the most, understand how you can provide value to people with that and become master in it. When you love what you do, provide value to people and do in on a professional level, the money are inevitable.

#68 abdur rahman on 08.04.10 at 10:40 am

No need to read it
article is very nice but it is very difficult to act on above advices especially for a person who has no love in his life and no one encourage him. so I say to all my friends love is a strong passion you can easily achieve your goal when you fall in love . Son you should fall in love.

take my advise, always do the right thing and god will make you succeed.

#79 Tamal Krishna Chandra on 05.24.11 at 9:00 am

Great article. You surely have good knowledge on the subject of life. According to me, you are successful only when you fully satisfied with whatever you have in your life. Others may not call you successful. But still you are successful l. Because you are fully satisfied with your life conditions. However, your articles definitely shows an unique way to live. Keep writing more such articles to help people. Have a nice day.

#80 Ejita on 05.31.11 at 6:04 pm

Hey, I think this is not for those who has not yet fix their goals. I love programming and I want to develop a website for my university fellows and now I’m 21 I can do it if I work hard. So the basically what this article tells us is that we must have confidence in our work.

#81 Frank on 06.23.11 at 3:10 pm

It’s a nice adverse for me,maybe I need to find a purpose at first.Thanks very much!

#82 Dipankar on 06.30.11 at 10:08 am

If you want to make you children successful, you have to become a successful person first. Find out, what you like to do the most, understand how you can provide value to people with that and become master in it.

Thanks
