The strength to move your feet comes from within. Many men and women have lost their hearts, have had their egos shattered, bitten dust and given up chasing the elusive success in life.

How to be successful in life #1 DON’T LOOK BEHIND

There are men and women that have tried and lost. But again, there have also been a few who have weathered the storm, walked into the deepest crevices, dug out and stood before the light basking in their successful achievements.

It’s easy to sit back and be content, but then what is the difference between you and the billion other people who live and die on the face of this planet, doing nothing more but weighing it down, and wishing to be more successful in life?

You have the power to go on, and make a difference. The man or woman who has sweated blood and worn their feet has always reached their personal mountain top.

When you think of taking that next step, it might be a daunting task, but the person who wants to move ahead trusts himself or herself and takes a chance.

And the person who keeps looking back over their shoulder can do no more than get scared and turn back.

You can learn how to be successful in life from people like Abraham Lincoln and Donald Trump have been through the roughest phases of their life.

But they never gave up. They ploughed on and on. And can they ever be forgotten? There are two ways to live life.

One, a content life which will be forgotten by everyone when you die. And the other, you will die, but you will be remembered every single day for many years to come. Which life would you rather lead?

How to be successful in life #2 LET GO OF WHO YOU ARE

When you let go of who you are, you get that chance to be who you want to be. How can you ever know your destiny? If there is anything called destiny in the first place. But one thing is certain, it’s the little changes in life that pile up to make the big ones.

I know my little changes, and it surprises me all the time. The man I am today didn’t wake up this morning. It was a long process that started in my younger years, when I took little steps off the beaten track. I never knew all that I did was leading me to what I am. But I did let go of who I was. I changed my personal destiny little by little.

Do you love what you do? If you don’t, why are you doing it? Again, the big S word, security. That’s fine, but can’t you try to change your destiny just a little every day, so that a few years later, you can be exactly where you want to be?

It’s not easy to let go of the content life, especially when you have to take the next step blindfolded. But then, men and women of steel nerves and determination weren’t made in the clouds of happiness, they were molded in the blaze of blind darkness, through the deepest and darkest times of their lives. Let go of who you are, and be what you were meant to be.

How to be successful in life #3 CLIMB MOUNTAINS

It is always darkest before dawn.

The cliffs are the highest just before the vertex.

Why would you want to stand at the bottom and dream of glories when all you need to do is take that next step into the skies and be successful in life? It’s not easy to take chances and take blind steps into the clouds, but it’s the belief in yourself that can bring miracles. And miracles don’t really exist anyways, it’s the way you subconsciously bring yourself to the point when you bump into a miracle that was just waiting for you in your path.

And when you climb mountains, you are bound to bump into miracles and into your worst fears, but ask the people who made it to the apex, they’ll tell you how sweet success can taste. And is it worth the effort to take that next step, especially when the path is so treacherous?

Well, you’d never know until you take that next step. And be what you were born to be.

Take this magical path of positivity and you won’t just know how to be successful in life, you’ll have an experience of a lifetime.
