There are two notions of becoming successful. The first notion is that you either have a perception that there is a thin line between success and failure and the second notion is that you believe fate determines whether one will become successful or not. Those who believe in the second notion have a perception that there is a thick line between success and failure and that luck plays a significant role in what we eventually turn out to be. On the other hand, those who believe in the first option are doers and believe on their ability to choose what they will become. A higher percentage who believes in the first notion tends to become successful as compared to those who base their views on fate and luck. So which idea do you believe in? In this post, we are going to learn several habits about those who believe in their abilities to change their lives from one position to another.
It has been said time and again and it has since become a cliché that knowledge is power. These three words are so powerful, very common but less comprehended by many people across the globe. Even in the Bible, it is mentioned that people perish because of lack of knowledge. From our first paragraph, you either fall in the first or the second notion which basically implies that you are making a decision and life is all about choices we make. Therefore, whenever we make personal decisions on whatever we want, we ought to be willing to learn all the nitty-gritty details about a particular subject matter. Learning, in this case, will involve reading, learning, researching a lot of content on a particular subject matter because the purpose of doing so is to be more knowledgeable to handle problems that you might encounter while doing a particular task. For instance, the purpose of learning a foreign language is not to know but to facilitate communication with another person speaking the same language and by doing so you will have solved the problem of communication barrier between the two of you which applies to almost every sector, doctors are trained to solve medical problems, accountants are trained to solve bookkeeping problems and so on and so forth.
- Evaluation process
In an academic institution, students are often given various examinations based on what they have been learning. The purpose of these examinations is to evaluate the extent to which a particular student is conversant to the subject matter that is being tested. The same principle applies in almost all life encounters because everything is like a puzzle and our goal in life is to solve the puzzles to get whatever we want. Evaluating yourself in every action that you put is essential in providing you with a clear framework to work with based on a particular situation. Let’s say, a particular exam has four sections with different topical questions to test your understanding. In this four section, you might score highly in three and perform relatively poor in one topic. This means that you can handle situations presented in the three subjects scored highly than in the one performed poorly. In order to improve and grow, take the time to master the failed topic is a big step towards becoming even more successful.
No one in the world wants to be a failure by choice and of there is one such person I would want to meet them some day. We all expect to be successful but circumstances lead to some people become successful and others becoming failures. Failing is not a bad thing because what matters is whether you get up again and continue with whatever you were doing. Failure in itself is just another problem that requires a solution and does not whatsoever indicate an end to something. We should be curious to learn what made us fail and from learning we are able to avoid such instances in the future to avoid some certain outcome. A person who has failed twice knows two principles that do not work unlike a person who is scared to fail and as a result never tried something.
