How To Become Successful? Finding A Simple Way
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

To the question how to become successful, there are lots of answers and ways. However, there is a general agreement that to be successful is to be happy. In this article I will talk about a guaranteed way to become more successful.

There is a multitude of things that makes us happy. Getting to be rich, being able to help others, having great relationships, traveling throughout the world and discovering new cultures. As you can see, the answer to what is success is going to be very personal to you.

But in the process of being successful, we constantly go through an internal process of making choices and taking actions. The way we go about making those choices and taking actions may have a tremendous impact on how successful we feel and on our outcomes.

If we make our choices with integrity to ourselves, the battle is half won already. Why?

Because we will make those choices by being true to ourselves and our values. And when we are true to ourselves and our values, we are always winners.

So learning to be true to ourselves and our values is fundamental. In a way we want to become the boss of our selves. The job then, I would suggest is to be more involved in our own spiritual development. In the process we learn to make powerful choices and become automatically more successful in life.

Here is an example.

When we embark on developing ourselves spiritually and learn to be less selfish, we learn that to be successful, we must realize that our job or business is not just about ourselves. We will instead have a higher purpose. We realize that in fact our business is about bringing joy to people by the mean of a cool product or service that we are marketing or providing an environment that nurtures the growth of our employees or simply providing the means for a stellar education for our kids.

How to become successful then is to espouse a higher purpose than just satisfying our selfish desires. This attitude brings us joy in the process and we naturally attract more good things to our lives.

Beside having a higher purpose, the additional way of becoming successful is to apply the Law of Attraction. As this law states, we attract in our lives what we focus upon. By doing things that give us happy thoughts, such as serving others, we are more likely to attract good things and success to ourselves.
