7 Tips to Being A Successful Success Seeker

Have you ever suffered from a touch of envy about some people who seem naturally successful? Most of us have. Of course what one never knows is what has on behind the scenes which led them to be a success. If you had the opportunity to find out how they obtained their success, I guarantee there would be no big secrets and it would be a combination of hard work and a little bit of luck. So if you’re looking for success in life here are 7 tips to being a successful success seeker.

1. Accept there are no secrets to success

Don’t waste your time believing that there is some magic formula to being a success because there isn’t. All the things that you would expect such as working hard, taking risks, staying motivated etc is what it takes.

2. Deal with the bricks that life throws

The most successful people are those that accept the bricks that life throws at them and don’t waste energy on regrets but look to see how they can turn disadvantage into advantage.

3. Have a learning mindset

If you’re a success seeker then it’s imperative that you have a learning mindset. That doesn’t mean you have to be constantly studying, but you should be reading, you should be listening and you should be asking questions.

4. Embrace the pressure

Success doesn’t just happen. If you want to be a successful success seeker then you will need to embrace the pressure that will naturally occur in a positive way and be prepared to take risks.

5. Seek out and accept opportunities.

Never make the mistake of hoping that opportunities will come to you. They might and if they do you have to be open to accepting them. However, you shouldn’t rely on having a lucky break. If you want success then seek out opportunities and grab them with both hands!

6. Be prepared to work harder than anyone else

Success rarely just falls into people’s laps and yet it’s easy to forget that in order to find success you need to work incredibly hard and often work harder than other people. This doesn’t mean you should suddenly adopt an unhealthy lifestyle and miss out on exercising or eating properly while you concentrate on other activities. However, it does mean that you need to be prepared to sacrifice some things and work very hard indeed.

7. Do it your way

When the London 2012 Olympic Games was on, Jonathan Edwards the former Olympic triple jump champion was interviewed about what made an Olympic Champion. He said that although it was important to be inspired by others, it was important for individual athletes to do things their way. This could equally apply to any situation where you’re trying to become a success.

What tips would you give to someone who wanted to become a successful success seeker?
