7 Tips for Success
In this article we mention 7 tips for your success. That's not to say these are the only ones, nor will every successful person use all these. But using these tips will help you succeed.
1- Set Goals A set of goals or goal in writing enables you to have a purpose each day to work toward. Without a goal you may feel you have no purpose. You may have short term goals to achieve each day as well as long term (1 or more years). We are all individuals so we all have different goals. With goals you have something to aim for. Once you have developed a goal, keep negative thoughts like failure, fear, anger and envy from your mind.
2- Willing to Learn You must keep an open mind each day to new ideas, as the world is forever changing. What worked yesterday may not always work today, or maybe not the best way today. View your mistakes as opportunities rather than something to avoid at all cost. Willing to learn new things will make your business and life run better.
3- Perseverance and Patience So often the race is lost because it's not finished. Success is often just around the next corner or over the next hill. So often it's lost on the one yard line. In success you must persevere. You can't fail if you don't quit.
4- A Plan What specific actions or tasks will carry out your strategy or strategies? Create a sequence of actions and corresponding time-frame. Take time to do some initial planning, using your daily, monthly, and quarterly goals as a guide. Without a plan, you dreams will remain your dreams, and not your reality. But at the same time, do not wait for things to be perfect. Just start!
5- Responsible When you fail, you admit it and move on. You get back up and do it right the next time. Don't beat yourself up. Instead realize that we learn from every mistake we make, and every obstacle in our path serves to make us stronger and better. You let your actions speak louder than your words. You accept responsibility for your actions and learn from them . No excuses, just results.
6- Vision to See If you can see the success of your goals and dreams months or years before you live them, it will help motivate you. The ability to look ahead, see the future, imagine the good that can and will come from your hard work will motivate you.
7- Friends for Success Everyone who achieves much success does it with the help of countless others. People become successful because they help other people, and people like them. Associate with people who will encourage you. Acknowledge that for every step backward, there is one or more forward steps that bring you closer to your goals.
"Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs though checkered by failure, then to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much because they live in the grey twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat." -- Teddy Roosevelt

Re-defining Success in Midlife
When entering second adulthood, many women will begin a journey of re-defining personal and professional success for themselves. In midlife, success takes on a new meaning than it had in our 20's and 30's when it was most likely being defined more by others, the current culture, the past, hope or advertising. Our forming of new, revised, more authentic definitions of success are a reflection of our wiser, deeper, more experienced selves which sets us free to enjoy our life and work more completely because we are no longer defined or boxed in by outside influences. There is a sense of release from priorities that are no longer relevant or meaningful.

Learning From Your Mistakes
Your ability to deal constructively and effectively with mistakes and temporary setbacks is a mental skill that you can learn and become proficient at. The best way to deal with any failure is to realize that it is an indispensable prerequisite for success. You have to treat failure as an opportunity to lean, and begin again. You can overcome the fear of failure by doing the things you fear over and over again, and then resolve to bounce back, rather than letting them break you when things don't go right.
Many people talk or write about the science of success or the art of creating wealth. You don't want just the science. You don't want just the art. What you want is the technology. The how to.
K.O.R.E. Elements of Success
I want to focus our thoughts on each of these four elements of success. While these were originally written for a business audience, the principles can be easily translated to cover yourself or any group or organization you belong to.
What Does Success Look Like To You?
So many of us want success, but how many of us really know what we mean when we say it? And please?.. don't blurt out some superficial "bling and glam" definition like VH1 defines it on "The Fabulous Life of ??" The expensive cars, the safe full of jewelry and the massive homes on every continent are only fruits of success, not success itself. Rather, Success is the realization and accomplishment of worthy goals. They are those purpose driven milestones that we set in our lives based on our values, beliefs and ambitions. You know them when you see them because they bring a sense of fulfillment and peace of mind when actively pursued. On the flip side, however, they increase our level of anxiety and frustration when we let fear and complacency stop us from pursuing them. You should know that feelings of fear are part of the process, but you need to acknowledge that fear and move through it because I guarantee you that if you don't take time to set and actively pursue (purpose driven) goals, you will most certainly be destined to work on achieving someone else's. And we all know how that feels, right?

Number One Killer Of Could-Have-Been Success Stories
Balance: Flow and Faith
In so many areas of life we must always be vigilent of our mental, emotional and physical health. Getting involved or caught up in too much of one thing can create a multitude of problems in life. Out at a networking event recently, I had missed dinner but in true form to the crowd and socializing I purchased my first of many beers. I hadn't intended to stay as late as I did and nor had I intended to carry-on afterwards at a friend's place. A little excess can be a good thing once in a blue moon.
