5 Life-Changing Keys to Success

There’s an old English proverb that goes, “God is every bird a worm, but he doesn’t throw it in their nest.” To succeed, we must follow the principles that cause success. When you follow the principles you will succeed every time.

Today I want to discuss five life-changing keys to success that will position you to succeed, to be your best, and to live the life of your dreams.

5 Life-Changing Keys to Success:

1. Do Your Best

“Always do your best. What you plant now, you will harvest later.”

~Og Mandino

Your todays are the building blocks of your tomorrows. Give each day your very best and you will have built your very best life. The key is to build the habit of giving your best in everything you do. Don’t spend your time rushing, but spend it creating quality building blocks for tomorrow. Spend your todays creating a future that you will be proud of.

2. Choose

“Be miserable. Or motivate yourself. Whatever has to be done, it’s always your choice.”

~Wayne Dyer

John Donne said, “Be thine own palace, or the world’s thy jail.” The choice is yours! If you choose to see the “bad” in everything then that’s exactly what you’ll see. I know it’s crude, but if you look for a “bugger” then you will find one. Choose to be optimistic; you are much more likely to succeed if you believe that you will succeed, much more likely.

3. Be Confident

“Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy.”

~Norman Vincent Peale

If you don’t believe you will succeed, why would anyone else, you know you best, you know if you’re capable of succeeding or not. I’m not saying that you should be arrogant but, you should be confident in your abilities. Why not you? Why not now? If someone else can succeed, then that’s just proof that you can succeed as well. Be confident in your abilities and set out to achieve your dreams.

4. Work

“Determine never to be idle. No person will have occasion to complain of the want of time who never loses any. It is wonderful how much may be done if we are always doing.”

~Thomas Jefferson

Solomon said, “Idle hands make a man poor, but diligent hands bring wealth.” No one succeeds without hard work. There’s no such thing as success without hard work. No butterfly flies without first struggling to get out of the chrysalis. To fly, you must first struggle, you can’t fly into flying.

5. Make a Difference

“Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does.”

~William James

You make a difference. One person with determination, persistence, and a “no-give-up” attitude will accomplish more than a thousand people who are merely interested in success.

What you do makes a difference, how you do it makes a difference, so do what you do to the best of your abilities, leveraging the wisdom of others, and in time, you will succeed.
