If you want to become successful you need to be clear what success means to you. You need to divide your goals into two main types, long-term and short-term goals. Your long-term goals would be your primary goals which might take months or years to achieve. In order to achieve that goal, you need to achieve a series of short-term goals. Your short term-goals can be as short as daily goals, but it has to be something that helps you grow and evolve as a person.

To handle stress, you need to have healthy options to let it out. You don’t need to take out a whole day, you can simply spend 30 minutes to 1 hour each day by meditating, exercising, painting or reading. It can be anything that calms your mind and allows you to think clearly. Did you know Oprah Winfrey meditates every morning before going to work and Michelle Obama exercises before starting her day?

5. Quest for knowledge

Jack Ma, the founder and executive chairman of Alibaba group said,
I always tell myself that we are born here not to work, but to enjoy life. We are here to make things better for one another, and not to work. If you are spending your whole life working, you will certainly regret it.
It’s true that you need to work hard, but you also need to relax, spend time with your loved ones and take care of yourself.

7. Learning from mistakes

This is a very crucial step that can make or break the path to your success. We are bound to make mistakes, and bad things can happen for no reason sometimes. But if you let this stop you then you are just stopping your journey to success. Mistakes should be seen as an opportunity to learn from. Complaining, blaming and cribbing about an issue isn’t something that can get you anywhere. Try to learn as much as you can from a mistake and then move on from it.

8. Connections

Building a network of influential people is bound to help you. Other than that, your friends are also going to play a role in shaping your mind set. If you are not surrounded by those kinds of people right now then you can just join a program, course, volunteer work or workshop to meet like-minded people.
