I have a simple equation that will lead to success. There are a few different theories on success. I have read several books on the subject and what I have put together is simple but that doesn't mean it is easy. Here is the equation.
Vision + Belief + Hard(SMART) work = SUCCESS
Again simple but not easy. So let's break it down.
You must see clearly your end goal. No matter what you are trying to be successful at, if you can not see it clearly becoming reality, then your chances of achieving success diminish. If you don't see yourself ever hitting the ball you will never hit the ball.
When you visualize your goal you need to believe it will happen. You have to believe it so strongly that you feel like you already accomplished your goal. You have to believe so strongly that when people tell you that you can't accomplish your goal it will not deter you from continuing to get after it. You have to believe so strongly that when you get rejected, fall off the horse, or fail at your attempts you get up and keep moving forward.
This is Hard(SMART)work because you can work your a off, but if you are doing the wrong things 1,000,000 times it won't help you. Make sure what you are doing is the most efficient way to get you to your goal. Use a support system of people who are successful for help. You should work your ass off but don't waste time when it is not necessary. Time is a commodity that you can never get back. Learn from failures and allow people to help you adjust along the way. You might be a little off.
This is what it all adds up to. Once you have achieved your success keep doing the things that got you there and don't let it go. Also here is the most important thing. While you want to stay focused on the goal, you should find time to enjoy yourself. Make time to enjoy your family. Make time to live, laugh, and love. This is why working smart is important as well. Proper use of time will allow you to make time for life. After all, it should be the driving force behind your success.
