Many think that the journey to success is a walkover, that you will wake upset your goals and objectives, then boom, you realize all of them just like that.
Success is a journey that one must embark on prepared, with proper plans on how to realize those set goals, how are you going to become that successful man that you have planned to be.
Get the right woman
Ever heard of the saying, behind every successful man, is a hardworking woman, well that’s true. As a man you must have a partner, one that is looking out for you, she can turn all the stones you may have skipped while on the way.
By right woman, I mean a woman that pushes and supports your ideas, get a woman who is ready to correct you and expose you to your faults, and do not get the “cool chicks”
As a man that desires for success, you must get a woman who believes that you can succeed, find yourself a woman who believes that hard work pays, that kind of a woman will work hand in hand with you so you both could succeed.
Stop taking cheap drinks
There are these local bars that men tend to run to especially when things never go as planned. The “maama fina bar and lodge” in these bars, that’s where you find failures, those that resorted to the cheap beer after failing to reach their goals.
As they say, cheap company, cheap minds, you will not find any worth friends at those local bars, you will find men that shall talk you into quitting. Those bars only accommodate men that spend the whole day gambling and drinking, stay away.
By advising you to stop taking cheap drinks, I do not mean you should go for the Black label in the 5-star hotels, I am trying to set a platform for you to think more into chasing your goals other than spending time at local inns for cheap beer.
Know productive things
If you set a goal but you keep failing and failing at it, drop it or save it for later, embark on productive things, study the environment and know the trends, at least keep yourself updated with what sells. You are not a quitter, you are a survivor.
So many times people get stuck on doing staff that is not productive, for example, you are in amidst of a Muslim community but your dream is to sell pork, these are the plans you should drop and resort to better ones.
By productive things I mean to focus more on things that can earn you sustainable profits, no job is bad but sometimes one needs to be a little keen on either a job that funds your day to day expenses or a job that saves for the future.
Connect with big people
The quality of people you hang out with determines the type of person you want to become, a person that desires for success should be in a position to understand that only successful people will get you to where success is.
Connecting with successful people doesn’t mean turning your back on a local friend, it means limitation, spend your time asking big people questions, listen to their stories, this will broaden your mind on how to set and achieve.
This century is all about who knows you, both the political, health and entrepreneurial sectors, therefore connections with some big people can earn you a first-class seat in a business seminar meant for a certain class of people.
It is very hard to get to the top alone but the quality of people who get you to the top also matter, associating with successful people helps you lay a firm foundation on how to become successful, compare and contrast their success journeys.
There is nothing like God, take the wheel, for I believe you know my desires, You must work in order to become successful, no successful man has a story of God having fought his battles alone, they fought together, as God guided and blessed his work.
The only reason why you are not succeeding is that you are lazy, so many people want that luxurious life but they do not want to wake up at 6:00 am to plan on how to get to live that life.
Do not discriminate jobs, it takes a lot of courage and sacrifice to get to the top that includes resorting to all types of jobs if necessary. Success cannot be built in one day. It’s a step by step journey.
