Why so many people are successful in their life? You may wonder there must be some kind of underlying framework that these successful people follow. Honestly, I don’t know if there is any such framework, formula, shortcuts or an algorithm to become a successful person in life.
If there is any pill, by having it, one will become successful — I’ll be the happiest person on the earth because success is the only thing I’m looking for.
Success is not a thing. Like, today you’ve worked so hard and got more sales or meet the deadlines and hoping that tomorrow I’ll call myself a successful person in life. That’s not how success works. It’s not an overnight thing.
Actually, success takes time, dedication, patience, and constant improvement. I don’t know how you define being successful in life.

“REACHING THE HEIGHTS OF MY DESIRE”,
DESIRE in terms of health, family, friends, financial freedom, personality, and entrepreneurship journey, etc.
It’s all about perspective, how you envision your life, set goals and achieve it. It differs from people to people, and the best thing is that anyone can become successful in life.
Look, I’m not talking about getting success in business, study, relationship or WHATEVER. I’m talking here bigger than these things, a bigger domain that incorporates all these aspects and it’s called THE LIFE.
It’s is absolutely necessary to get success in life and is totally different from getting success in business or in a relationship. It’s time to change your point of view. That’s all.
Let’s go a little bit inside of human nature, and see what drives success.
There are two types of people. One is “OK” people – they are in good mood always, they don’t want change, they don’t have a purpose, they are fine with their life, living in a constant speed thinking somebody will come and grow me exponentially.
Second is “NOT OK” people – they don’t know why there are obsessed with. They want to do something and achieve something in life, they have a purpose to live and they want transform always.
I’m sure, you’re the second type of person- as you’re already reading this article. I can guess you’ve some desires to accomplish. I really appreciate that and wish your desire to come true soon.
You need to be more grateful in your life, always thankful for what you have because gratefulness is the fuel for your success. How to be more grateful? Look how i…

C. Figure Out
You can do mastery and be a legend in any field but you need to set target first and only you can grow more. If you don’t know where to go, and even if you go– you will end up reaching nowhere.
Figure out your desired level. For instance;
- In parenting, how good mother/father you want to be?
- In a relationship, how good wife/husband you want to be?
- In business, where I want to reach?
- In finance, how much I want to earn?
- In a study, how many grades I want to have?
This makes you a clear understanding of your desire, what you truly want to have. Just figure out and write it down.
Desires are big and will only come true if you set goals from them. You need to breakdown your desire and set milestones based upon a time with respect to accomplishments.
If you want to earn 1Million dollar in a year, then breakdown it into like this;
- 0.2M in the first 2 months.
- 0.5M in the first 6 months.
- 0.8M in the first 8 months.
- 1M in a year.
Dividing your desire into small chunks called goals can help you dramatically to plan and achieve the milestones.
Habit is the only thing that can make you or break you. Focus on positive habits. Make sure you build habits in such a way that you are going towards your goals or desires every single day. Make sure you do things that make your strength even stronger, convert weakness to strength, utilize opportunities and minimize threats.
Always make today better than yesterday.
There is nothing left to do and celebrating is the only choice you will have if you become successful. So if you want to reach a winning moment, make sure you’ve utilized your time wisely, hang out with the right people, focus on personal growth and of course follow the above 5 things to become successful in life.
