Exposed: The Extra that separates the Victorious from the Successful
Most people who chase success bump into it every now and then but the very successful ones succeed everyday. They are victorious conquerors of success. They live their daily lives successfully.
For these people, success is not the problem. It is maintaining and guiding it to victory. Alas, this is what separates victorious people from merely fortunate ones.
It is the extra that leads to extraordinary success.
I’ve found that a combination of certain behaviors is what makes up this extra which separates the very successful victors from the one time success flings.
1. Plan Rigorously;
2. Act perpetually;
3. Persist Assiduously;
4. Learn Ceaselessly and
5. Are Continuously Consistent.
Here’s what I mean by these:
1. Rigorous Planning:
"A goal without a plan is just a wish." - Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
Every success is a product of preparation but constant success, everyday conquest and victory require a little more than that. Very successful people plan rigorously turning considering every aspect of their endeavor. They prepare for any eventuality. This helps them stay unshaken by the end outcome. They understand that: the best they can do is thoroughly plan ahead and they do just that.
2. Perpetual Action:
"You can’t plow a field simply by turning it over in your mind." - Gordon B. Hinckley
Very successful people know that without actions their goals are merely wishes which may never come to fruition. Therefore they are proactive in everything they do. They understand that nothing ever moves without being pushed thus they are always found taking action. They don’t wait for circumstances to push them they are proactive.
3. Assiduous Persistence:
"It’s not how low you fall, but how quickly and often you optimize that counts." - Rosalene Glickman.
Ultimate success is a product of persistence. You can never lose a battle you refuse to give up. While one time fluke success are enjoying it, the victors are out there working out more successes. Your persistence refuels your enthusiasm such that you don’t lose the urge to try one more time. Very successful people understand that one more failure calls for one more attempt. They never give up.
4. Ceaseless Learning:
"Develop a passion for learning. If you do, you will never cease to grow." - Anthony J. D’Angelo
Most people vehemently refuse to acknowledge their ignorance. The words "I don’t know" they disdain but truth is you can’t know everything which is why victors concentrate on how to increase their worth by learning. Instead of spending time watching TV, they read, study courses, participate in intellectual discourses and attend mastermind sessions. They simply choose education over entertainment. This way they never stop growing. Victory is a function of daily conquests.
5. Continuous Consistency:
"Long-term consistency beats short term intensity." - Bruce Lee
Victors succeed ultimately by being continually consistent. They refuse to yield to the false sense of conquest that winning every single time gives. They set out to do more, everyday. They commit to winning more battles. This way they stay at the zenith.
There is a difference between one time success and ultimate conquest. This difference lies in certain behaviors that characterises very successful people. They plan rigorously, persist assiduously, act perpetually, learn ceaselessly and are continually consistent. They know they need to continue winning to stay at the top.
How else do I end this but by quoting Winston Churchill who once said:
"Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm."
