To succeed in life and Nigeria as a country because this country is turning out to be another kind of life that we didn’t sign up for, there are some extra tools or ammunitions one needs to equip themselves with in order to succeed and make it through. Some of these tools include:
SELF DISCIPLINE :
This is the ability to control oneself and our impulses, emotions and reactions in any given situation.
Self discipline as a tool foe success is to help us achieve that set goal irrespective of distractions(sure they would come but self discipline is there to keep you focused), it also leads to higher self esteem, self confidence and inner strength.
Who wouldn’t be happy to have set a goal and achieve it in that given time, this is the work of self discipline.
In the words of a great author, “The ability to discipline yourself to delay gratification in the short term in order to enjoy greater rewards in the long term, is the indispensable prerequisite for success“_ Brian Tracy.
POSITIVE ATTITUDE :
After disciplining oneself, comes acquiring positive attitude. Positive attitude towards work, school, set goals and life in general.
Drop the “I can’t do it”, “I will fail” attitude and pick up the “I can do it”, “I will do it” attitude and see yourself change and accomplish success.
DO- IT SPIRIT :
This is the last and most important tool to have. We just can’t discipline ourselves and acquire positive attitude and end up not doing what we set our mind to. No matter how big, unrealistic and impossible that dream you have is, DO IT.
Its better to have tried and failed than to live with unending regret, stop procrastinating, stop self doubt and just DO IT.
Failure is not a thing to fear, instead embrace it and use it as a source of fuel to pursue and accomplish your goals.
Accomplishing your goal is the aim, fear is the bridge to cross and our DO- IT attitude is the first step to crossing that bridge and achieving our aim.
Being successful is achievable and realistic, start small and watch yourself accomplish more than you imagined.
