Creating success

People don’t always consciously think about success, but will often look for ways to be successful. If we were to think about success in this way, we will have already failed through the pressures of thinking we need to succeed and being worried that we wouldn’t.

How we choose to deal with our issues is the key to success, but to do that we need to maintain a positive mental attitude, be willing to work hard and not let any form of discouragement stop us from continuing to build on any success that we have.

I have found that success comes from our ability, both consciously and unconsciously to work through our daily routines. When we unconsciously learn to deal with our issues, we will consciously learn to embrace life in a way that replicates change and that should lead to success.

Through change we go on to create new perceptions and with new perceptions we will become more inspired to go out and create success. We must consciously create habits that continually improve our life.

  1. Success isn’t something I have a lot of experience with, seeing as I haven’t had a lot of it!

    When you’re used to failing, even when you try your hardest, you eventually stop trying! It also doesn’t help when you have parents who don’t provide you with what you need to succeed, or notice anything you ever did.

    My mother should have worked for the CIA, considering how good she was at brainwashing; and my father was oblivious most of the time. The other issue has been that I made mistakes in my life where I would prefer not to run into people who remember the way things were. I will have to remain anonymous in the writings that I plan on doing, so success will be irrelevant.

    Moving forward and actually accomplishing something in my life is such a foreign concept to me. Other people have no clue as to what it’s like feeling paralysed by all your fears, doubts and insecurities. They somehow think we choose to live this way, which would be truly insane, considering how horrible it can be.

    Every day you wake up and wonder why you even bother. Many times I almost wish my parents wouldn’t have had children for what we went through. I would like to accomplish at least one important thing in my life, besides my daughter being born.

    Success would be different for me, as in saving a child from the demons that walk our earth. I only want to make the best of what time I have left!

    1. Thanks Randy. Yes I understand where you’re coming from. Success is different things to different people.

      I believe everything depends on where we come from and what we manage in our lives. Knowing what I’ve been through and what I’ve had to deal with, is a success story in itself, but someone else may not see that as a success story.

      For those of us who continue to struggle in our lives, just getting through one day is a success. All we can do is make and give of our best in the hope we make something of a success.

      To create something that allows us to be who we want to be is what I call success. To be happy in our lives is how I see success and how many of us can say we truly are.

  2. I never had the motivation to succeed in a career. For me, most of the time, success is simply making it through the day. Some days are more struggle than others.

    Also just knowing that I am appreciated by my children is success in itself.

    1. I couldn’t agree more. I hope you’re okay. Being appreciated by our children should be our biggest success story, because it shows what good parents we’ve been. Bringing children up is not the easiest of jobs.

      I can resonate with your feelings about disability too. Having a disability is a struggle in itself, both emotionally and physically. Forging a career with a disability is even harder.

      With a disability we’re more likely to lack confidence and that holds us back.

  3. Hi Ilana, I enjoyed your entry, for I too am trying to change and better myself. I am trying to succeed in small goals rather than a career goal. You have to learn how to walk before you can run.

    I always try to stay positive and your writings help me. Take care and have a great weekend.

    1. Thanks Joe. You’re welcome. Smaller goals are good. From small acorns great oak trees grow.

      I always say, small steps, but significant ones. Small goals are significant, however small. Please let us know how you’re getting on. Have a great weekend too.
