In the busyness of our daily lives, we often get caught up in the real things that make us successful, like degrees, job titles, and material things. But the real magic comes from the things that can't be seen or touched. They shape the path to victory. Today, let's talk about the seven intangibles that, for me, are the foundation of my beliefs and make someone successful.
1. The Guts to Begin?
Most of the time, success doesn't just knock on our door; it makes us take the first step. It takes courage to begin, which is what starts the journey. Think about the last time you were hesitant to start something new. Our courage is what drives us into unknown areas, whether we're starting a business, a creative project, or even a new hobby.
2. What Will It Take to Keep Going?
Getting started is only the first step; the real challenge is to keep going. Dreams can come true if you have the discipline to keep going. Like giving a plant water every day, consistent work leads to growth. Think of your goals as a marathon instead of a sprint. The slow and steady approach wins the race.
3. Do you have the faith to figure it out?
We have to figure things out as we go through life because it's like a puzzle. Being able to handle uncertainty with confidence is a big deal. Keep in mind that even the most successful people have had problems they couldn't solve. If you believe in yourself, you can figure it all out.
4. Are you willing to wait to grow 1% every day?
Right now, people like to celebrate quick wins, but real growth takes time. Learn to be patient so that you can grow by 1% every day. Don't expect everything to be perfect at the start or on day 100. Small changes that are made regularly add up over time to big results.
5. The Will to Remain Up Every Time?
Problems will always be there, and plans often change in ways you didn't expect. The important thing is not to fall but to learn how to get back up every time. Life will throw you curveballs, but how you handle them determines your path. People who are strong tend to do well.
6. The Honesty to Give Your Best Every Time?
It's not enough to be honest with other people; you have to be honest with yourself too, even when no one is looking. Building trust and credibility starts with holding yourself to high standards and doing your best, even if no one else notices.
7. Are you thankful to value what you have?
As we try to be successful, it's easy to focus on what we don't have. But being happy comes from being grateful for what we already have. Being thankful for and celebrating your successes, no matter how small, makes you feel good and pushes you forward.
Let's not forget the intangibles as we go on our way to success, dear reader. Have the courage to begin, the discipline to keep going, the confidence to figure it out, the patience to learn, the persistence to rise, the honesty to do what you're supposed to do, and the gratitude to enjoy the journey. These things that can't be seen or touched are the building blocks of a happy and successful life. Let's start this journey together, armed with the things that can't be seen or touched.
