Success – Learn Your Trade
Success in achieving goals: Almost any goal you choose – whether riches and material abundance or spiritual attainment – requires learning. How much education do you have? Do you want more? Perhaps your goal is to get another degree or to secure a special license.
There are countless opportunities to learn more about your own industry or to learn about a new skill. Not only do you have the colleges and universities, but there are many trade schools, correspondence schools, and special groups that teach skills – at very reasonable prices.
Keep The End In Mind
What do you need to know to get to where you want to be? You may not need a degree, but the actual experience. So you’d need to change jobs or accept a part-time job at night to develop your skills.
More than ever, people are leaving their present occupations to learn a new trade and then starting at the bottom again to be happy in their work. Maybe you’ll need to put in extra hours at work now so that you can save money to take the time off next year.
Even though most entry level positions are offered to the younger people, you can find many companies willing to give you a chance to change your occupation. Many times you might find an older master willing to apprentice you to learn the skill or trade.
Once you’re enrolled to learn new skills, put everything towards learning. Apply yourself one hundred percent. Take advantage of asking questions and getting criticism from teachers and fellow students. Read everything you can study well. It is your developing expertise that will get you ahead and closer to your goal.
It’s always a good time to learn more. Even if you are happy in your job, expanding yourself through education is a very rewarding activity. Take dancing or tennis, gourmet cooking or sculpture. Any activity is taught and shared by many enthusiasts.
Stop Wasting Time
Consider the most important things you need to accomplish. These are high priorities. Then think about those things that seem to take up a lot of time and get you nowhere. Those are the low priorities.
Understand what’s important to achieve and do those things first. Let go of all the busywork for paperwork that piles up. It’s better for you to stack those low priorities somewhere else and finish the important material than to spend time clearing your desk to get down to the essential things.
You’ll be noticed more quickly for the big things you achieve than for keeping paper flowing. Don’t let co-workers waste your time with chitchat if you’ve got things to accomplish. Save that for lunch hours or for after work social activities.
Handle paper once; decide the action and finish with it. Keep interruptions to a minimum and delegate responsibilities. Although you’d like to believe you’re indispensable to the job and you are the only one to take care of many things, you can teach someone else and move on to your own goal achievements.
What are you waiting for? Few opportunities are thrown at you; you have to create the right positions and situations to move up. Make lists of things you want to accomplish and do them.
If you’re busy in an office situation, make daily lists and reward yourself with praise upon completion. Catch yourself achieving. Concentrate on what you’re doing and do one thing at a time. But do it quickly and handle the next thing. Be efficient in telephone calls, maybe taking them at appointed times or calling back at your convenience.
Don’t generate copies or correspondences that make you look like you are doing things. Your superiors will know what you accomplish. Be busy doing important things rather than writing about what you’ve done. And take the time for physical.
exercise. It will energize you – not take away from your effectiveness. It relaxes your mind and stimulates your capacity to achieve.
An inner core of all accomplishment is the positive energy from the subconscious. If your subconscious mind has tapped into your goal and believes it is good for you, your energies will direct themselves towards that goal and success won’t be far.
You can consciously create circumstances and conditions of environment and physical presence. But it is that level behind the outwardly physical that directs your true being. When the subconscious mind accepts an idea, the inner power will complete it.
That’s why you can accomplish anything you want – by creating all outward manifestations to trigger your subconscious into action. As you decide on your goals and write them down, repeat them twice a day out loud. This in essence brings it to the inner level.
When you think about your goals and desires, the subconscious hears it. So direct your energies – both outer and inner – to your goal with one-pointed devotion. In that way, you can control your destiny and achieve great success in life.
In order to connect to your inner self, relax – let your thoughts go. Feel that part within you that actually makes the decisions – the reflexes, the instincts, the intuition and hunches. Let your mind be quiet from its usual chatter.
Some people present problems to their inner consciousness by asking themselves a question before they fall asleep. Often the answer is in their minds when they wake up. Clarity rids confusion. If you find you’re filled with worries and anxieties, spend the time to think them through. Approach them logically, considering the consequences of all possible actions. When you’ve made a decision, follow through and don’t agonize over what-if’s.
Everybody has creative potential. And you don’t have to be an artist to be creative.
Each moment of the day is creating your own self, becoming your true inner person.
Let yourself look within. Release the handicaps of fear and anxiety – even for a moment. You’ll be relaxed and refreshed.
The same technique has been used by great inventors, financiers, business people, political figures and enlightened beings: constant repetition of the goal and the belief that you can attain it.
Never dwell on self-criticism or what you think are your inadequacies. Instead, repeat your goals and the qualities that will make you successful.
Write out your outstanding goal. In a few words, describe what you want to attain. Then write what you will do to achieve that. What energies and efforts will you trade for that success?
Give yourself a specific date to accomplish this goal, and specific times to carry out the interim steps. Put this paper or note card in a visible place – such as taped to the mirrors – so you can review it and repeat it at least twice a day.
It is those people who convince themselves that they are failures. And successful people believe that they will rise to the top and will achieve their goals. Believe in yourself. You are everything worth believing in.
Form the habit of accomplishment. With every step you take and every decision you make, bring yourself closer to your goals. Walk through your life with this sense of direction and they will come to you.
Develop self-confidence and esteem. Assert yourself and acquire all the excellent qualities and traits you admire most. What is your ultimate goal? How do you see yourself?
Be specific. Precisely specific. Visualize the place you live in – the rooms, the paintings on the walls, the furniture and swimming pool. Consider the family situation and financial stability. Think about the place you’ll be living in.
Then look at yourself. What clothes are you wearing and what do you look like? Consider your physique, your hair, the condition of your body. Then think about the things you do. What sports do you play, what groups do you belong to?
As if you’ve already accomplished your desires, look back and see what you did to get to where you are, (your success). Think about the classes you took, the jobs you worked at, and the places you moved to. Think about the places you’ve traveled to and the friends you’ve made.
Be comfortable with your new self-image. Put it on for size and change your fantasy to adjust perfectly to you. Why don’t you live as though you’re already there? What’s stopping you from becoming the person you are totally capable of becoming? You can only attain success only when you see yourself successful already. No pessimism.
Become Your Full Potential
Keep your goals and ambitions to yourself – don’t share them with anyone, not yet. Write them down and refer to them. Look back at what you wrote in a month, then in a few months. Work on them constantly, and don’t be afraid to revise and rewrite. Goals are always changing.
Think in possibilities – The success thinking facor. What is possible for you to achieve in the next six months? And go for it. Don’t play it safe with what you’ll probably achieve anyway. Push yourself to go further. The rewards are greater.
Feel the winning feeling. Feel successful already. Try on the clothes of total accomplishment and peace of mind. Live each day as though you have already reached your goals. There are always new ones to place in front of yourself.
Don’t announce your goals. This will set you up for failure. Even if you make a pact (contract) with yourself to attain a specific goal, don’t chastise yourself if you don’t make it. It may have been unrealistic or you may not have tried hard enough.
Do it yourself. There is nobody better to help you achieve your desires than you. Tap into the power of the subconscious and practice being your own fantasy. Then go ahead. Act on your convictions. Follow them through with devotions and then reap the rewards. You CAN accomplish anything you want in life. You don’t have to be an artist to be creative. I wish you success in your endeavour.
