The Key To Success In Life & Business

What Then Is The Foundation Of Success?

The key to success in life can be relative, and almost anyone can argue one or two points that brought he or she to wherever they are, or has kept them in their sad situations. But above all success factors, the most important element behind every success story is the ability to “TAKE ACTION”.

No matter how wonderful your ideas are, how wealthy your potential investors are, how smart your team members are, or how desperate the market wants you to launch your products, if you fail to TAKE AN ACTION towards achieving your goals, everything you’ve ever dreamt of would only remain a wishful thought, and depression may most certainly set in when you realise someone else has taken that same step and succeeded in that endeavour.

The only thing standing between you and your dreams are YOUR ACTIONS. What would it be? Would you sit back and continue to endlessly strategise while others have already taken a step, made mistakes, and learnt quickly from them? Or would you save yourself wasted time by taking an immediate action towards ensuring your success in life and your business? Whichever you choose will definitely have a positive or negative impact on your personal achievements.

How Should You Run Your Daily Activities?

Your daily tasks must be setup towards taking you closer to self-fulfilment with every passing day. What you set out to do now, is more important than what you did yesterday or what you’re going to do tomorrow. Thinking about the past or the future robs you of the focus that could have made your present ensure your tomorrow. You must learn to put your best efforts in every passing moment, for only in that, can you truly create something beautiful out of your life.

Action is the ultimate KEY TO SUCCESS. No matter the number of business, social psychology, or personal development books you read, if you fail to integrate your knowledge into your everyday life, you’d never be what you aim to become. You must work more than you dream, read, and talk about. YOUR ACTIONS will build your experience. And just as they say wisdom is the application of knowledge, your actions will also make you not just appear wise after a long series of trials, failures, and eventual success, but will make people want to follow and learn from you as a true leader.

Some Last Words

Remember, hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard. If you will succeed in your business, relationships, or life in general, you must learn to not just be the best student, but to be the person with an extreme unrelenting effort to put their thoughts, words, and aspirations into ACTION.

The ultimate key to success in everything is action, and until you begin to do that, no amount of intelligence, books read, or advise gotten, will hand you your goals on a platter of gold.

  1. About the time i decided to go into blogging, i had thought of how impossible it could be for me and in one way or the other, i was still held back with the ugly mindset of ‘impossibilites’

    But along the line, one needs to take a step to know how difficult a task is or not. If you dont take actions, you cant know and wont know…

    Taking action towards what i love made me feel satisfied and saw great possibilities i once thought was impossible.

    Thanks stan for this wonderful post.

  4. Love your piece on taking action, very well articulated, but its imperative to underscore the danger in action in itself that’s not well articulated. No one sets out to fail ultimately but an action not well thought through makes failure inevitable. Action should not just be spontaneous much as some would argue for its merit. But the culture of fine tuning the right move with adequate information is essential that involves timing. The time taken to digest your amazing piece is part of the puzzel.
    Therefore I am incline to include that every action must be measured with the most chances for sucesses through reseach and knowledge gained that is only possible with equitable investment of time.
