How to Achieve Your Goals in Life to Be Successful

Everyone wants to be successful. Everyone wants to leave a mark. And everyone wants to be at the top. But is it that easy? No, success does not come cheap. One has to work day and night, push themselves out of their comfort zone, challenge their own believes, values, and ideas, and of course, work mindfully and smartly.  

The starting point of all achievement is desire.

-Napoleon Hill

Achieving goals majorly depends on your desire to do so. That constant motivation, the continuous push in the direction; you have to give it all if you really want to make a difference in your life. Nobody hands over success to you on a golden platter; you have to achieve it yourself. So dream, set your mind free, imagine the impossible, plan ways to get around the hurdles, and have strong, unbuckling desire to achieve your goals. 

The secret of getting ahead is getting started.

-Mark Twain

Action is very important. If you just keep on making plans, thinking to start someday soon, changing the plans and then continuing this cycle, you will not get anywhere.  You have to make a move and from somewhere. As you move forward in pursuit of your goal, you will have many opportunities to score success. Eventually, these small achievements will define how successful you have been throughout your struggle. 

Success seems to be connected with action. Successful people keep moving. They make mistakes, but they don’t quit.

-Conrad Hilton

You might not necessarily achieve your goals successfully on the first go. Perseverance is key.  When you keep trying again after every setback, you eventually land the task at hand. Mistakes should not be taken as failures; rather, they should be seen as lessons that teach you how the goal cannot be achieved, leaving room for positivity and motivation throughout your struggle. 

There are no secrets to success. It is a result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure.

-Collin Powell

Success is a mixture of a lot of things which depend upon how you define success. But at the core, it is the result of how well you prepared, how hard you worked, and how you turned your failures into stepping stones. When you put in all these key ingredients, the resulting success is certain and it will speak for itself. 

I attribute my success to this: I never gave or took any excuse.

– Florence Nightingale

Making excuses is ultimately going to block success. Delayed attempts at scoring opportunities when they cannot work out anymore will likely result in failure than in success. For this reason, doing things at the right time instead of making excuses is the best way to score your goals with maximum success. Also, if you have an excuse-me attitude, you will not be able to give your best at anything. 


Remember, goals need strategic planning to be realized. Ad that will require a lot of hard work and determination!
