To be successful you need to…

success mark twainI know I have probably beat this to death but let us get serious for the moment.  Mark Twain stated, “The secret of getting ahead is getting started.”  This quote is very important when it comes to success.  It should be utilized not only in the future but right now.

Success comes by starting right now.  This is sometimes the hardest step because people always have good ideas and things that they want to do.  The problem that people have is taking the initial step.  This step will show a person the way.  As stated previously a person should take a breath, decide what they wish to do and act.

Remember that you are in charge of yourself.  If anything messes with your universe you should fix it.  There is no reason why you should not be in charge of who you are.  This does not mean go out and be a jerk to people because they do not act the way you wish.  That means that you can control yourself.  Do not let emotion rise because others are angry or upset with you.  Make a decision and stick to it.  Of course, you can stick with that decision unless someone can reason with you and you understand the reasoning of others.  A mentor or a person who is more educated in a certain area may know more about a subject than you.

Sometimes reason can override the drive that makes us want to act out of emotion.  This emotion can be our success factor or our detriment.  Which will you utilize?  Be emotional, act out but listen to the people around us.  I will leave you with this if you choose to act upon the now.  Go do something about your goal.  Make a call.  Talk to those around you to develop relationships.  Strive to get started in your endeavor.  I wish you all well and good luck.
