What Do Values, Morals, Ethics, Habits Have to do With Your Success?
Many people have the idea that it’s the actions you take that bring success or failure in life. The reality is, while taking proper action is important, knowing your own inner navigation and acting from there is really what is going to move you forward.
I grew up in a poor family, surrounded by the poverty of the Navajo Indian reservation where I lived. My parents had strong ideals in mind for me – that the only way to get ahead was to work hard at a job with regular hourly wages.
The idea of being entrepreneurial was a scornful one to them. There were enough trials in life without adding more risk to it.
But my own Core Desire was to define Success in a different manner. I constantly explored my values, morals, ethics, habits, and beliefs to define Success from an inner perspective – taking action came as I learned and defined these things from within.
Before you can be truly become successful in your life, you must take time to explore the nature of success. You should think critically on how you can apply the exact formula of the nature of success in your experience.
The key to success lies in every decision that you made and it lies also in your values, morals, ethics, and habits. Those who possess the right attitude and habits are the ones more likely to succeed in every aspect of life.
If you want to become fully successful, you also need to look after yourself. Know whether you are taking appropriate care of your mind and body. Remember that achieving success always involves decisions. It is vital to take care of yourself so you can decide wisely.
Achieving success will include challenges and stresses. By practicing a life full of gratitude, you can know how to deal with obstacles and be thankful for them. Successful people express gratitude for both the many blessings and challenges that they receive. They know it is important to choose to rely and focus on the positive side of life.
Success also involves being open-minded, rather than making assumptions and generalizations. As a successful person, you pay attention to details to find out what and who you can learn from. You don’t presume or put down others who haven’t yet achieved what they’re looking for.
It’s important to have a strong foundation of belief and strength from within, so that your emotions don’t take over and rule you. Feelings are very important (I believe they’re more important than we give them credit for), but it’s important to control them rather than allowing them to control you.
Real internal success also means that you balance every aspect of your life, especially your time.
Successful people are not ruled by procrastinations or laziness. On the other hand, true success never means that you are a workaholic to the detriment of your relationships or your health.
Finally, if you want to become like the successful people in this world (and it’s easier than you think it is!), learn from those who have gone before you. Don’t waste a single minute of your time – use it to seek out and be with people who can help you become successful.
Knowing your own internal landscape, following some simple self-care techniques, learning from mentors, and above all not allowing others to dictate your own definitions of success is what will start you on the path to getting where you want to be.
