A successful businessman was asked to mention the secret of his success, he quickly wrote down the following:
“After God, my work comes first: pleasure comes after duty. To achieve my goals. I schedule my daily, weekly and monthly priorities and focus on them till I see them through.”
Successful people live a planned, disciplined and focused life.
They don’t wake up with no laid down plan to run each day. Successful people have a target, goal or something that they want to pursue and achieve.-and they follow through. They don’t mix business with pleasure.
It’s so sad that too much kick for pleasure has stopped many people from being successful in life.
You cannot seek pleasure and success at the same time and expect to be successful. The body naturally loves pleasure-hedonism. It doesn’t want to be subjected to work and meaningful activities. So when you don’t plan and discipline your life, it will head towards a pleasure-seeking direction.
People and business fail for lack of a plan.
As a student or career (business) man, do you have a plan?
If you do, do you follow your plan through?
We all have 24 hrs. in a day each. The difference is what we do with them.
When you don’t put your time to good use, people with no plan and direction will use up your time.
The truth still remains that, there’s always something that wants our time and attention.
Your success in life is determined by how you use your time and what you spend your time on.
You will always become whatever you exchange your time for. Don’t just wake up and barge into the day.
- Have a plan.
- Have an objective.
- Have a focus, more especially on activities that will give your life a meaning…and make you successful.
Before you start your day, don’t forget to do these
Have a quiet time. Here, you come before God to take you through the day. It’s always an opportunity to prepare your mind for the day. Make it personal.
Schedule your daily activities. Scheduling your day helps you take charge of your life, monitor your activities and avails you to be on the lookout for distractions and time wasters.
Make it a habit…Successful people have great habits.
Always be focused on your goals for the day and follow them through.
Don’t mix business with pleasure. Learn to draw the lines.
Discipline your life, distractions are knocking every day.
Be deliberate with your time: use it or waste it.
You are going somewhere, don’t live your life anyhow.
Now over to you. What are your healthy dose of inspiration for each day?
