The Secret of Success: GET MOTIVATED

Everyone wants success. The good news is, anyone can be successful, you just need to put your mind to it and get motivated! So, what is the true meaning of success?

What do successful people have in common?

  1. They know when it is time to leave. People who have success know when they should look for a new job, start a new company or claim bankruptcy for their own. They have a good intuition for these things and are not afraid to make hard choices despite any challenges they may be facing.Get Motivated success motivation
  2. They go above and beyond. For people with success their job description is simply a starting point for how they do their job. After completing all mandatory tasks successful people always ask for moreprojects in order to challenge themselves. They are even willing to take on the seemingly trivial work that no one wants to do and are a team player.
  3. If at first you don’t succeed; try again. Success doesn’t occur overnight. Even those with tons of success have failed before they succeeded. The trick for those who are successful is that they don’t give up and are willing to learn from past mistakes. After failing at a goal most will give up in contrast, those who are successful do not give up, they try, try, and try again.
  4. They take responsibility. It isn’t always about good luck. Most of the time it is about taking responsibility and preserving. Successful people take responsibility for their work and know they won’t randomly get lucky just doing nothing. So, they take the time to work harder in order to be successful and gain a little luck along the way.
  5. They set attainable goals. Ever hear of “SMART GOALS?” in one shape or another those with extreme success have set focused goals in order to reach milestones and be successful. These goals are focused, big, yet attainable and set up to showcase a person’s strengths.

Learning more about how to become a successful individual is not difficult. The tools that you need to achieve this goal are already available to you. All you have to do is identify them and use them in the right way. Regardless of the goals you have, if you want to be successful you must get more involved in this process. There is no need for special talents or skills for the things you will have to do. In case you don’t mind investing some of your time and energy in this process, then you can expect great success.

If you do your research you will notice that motivation is a big part of success. To put it simply, if you want to be successful you must get motivated.

Without motivation, people will never find the drive to do the things they need to do to create the results they want in their lives. Motivation can be defined as an inner drive that keeps us moving forward. With the help of this inner drive, you can find what you are looking for. If there is no desire and passion involved, it is very likely that the goals you are trying to achieve are not so important to you. If you feel like this, then you should probably re-evaluate your definition of success.

Successful people know what they want to do, they love what they do and they are doing these things with great passion. Just think about it. Whenever you are something that you truly love, you are prepared to invest 100% of your energy and power to do it. For instance, successful athletes are spending many hours training. Business owners are involved in different activities that can help them grow their business like meetings, conferences, making plans, consultations etc. Now that you know how important motivation is to success, let’s find out how to get motivated and stay motivated. First of all, you must be sure what you want. Think about the things that make you feel successful. Answer this question:

What is Success in Life?

Next, you should surround yourself with positive individuals that care about you and love you. A negative environment will ruin your plans for success. Another important thing that will help you stay motivated is to set realistic goals. In order to get motivated, you also need to believe in yourself – work on your self-esteem and self-confidence. Remember, there are many ways to be more motivated. You just need to find things that motivate you.

Finally, you can use a support network where like-minded people are sharing their thoughts and experiences.

Excellent post made me so motivated. There comes a time in life when everyone feels de motivated and lost hope.

Terri Beavers

I really need to use your motivation to get me motivated. I could accomplish so much more with some daily motivation.


That’s a great comment about successful people having goals and very timely given the New Year…if you’re into New Year’s resolutions. (Which I am!)


Yes! SMART goals! I used to think they were tacky when I had to use them at work. Now I use them ALL the time!


I am getting more motivated. I didn’t used to be and I think it’s a work in progress but I do motivate not just myself but my friends and kids as well.


Perfect for getting a jumpstart on the plans for the New Year. My husband and I work together to help and motivate each other to be successful. It definitely helps to have that one person that you know is behind you no matter what and will help in any way possible.


Great tips! Positivity and self reflection are key.

Laura Charles

This post is spot on for the new year! Thanks for sharing these tips. We tend to lose motivation too easily. Thanks for the reminder on how to be successful.


i agree! I love this post – it really makes me feel happy about the work I do and how to continue with my motivation!


Could agree with you more that you need to be around people who will motivate you to be better and do better. That’s how I try to live.

Thanks for the read. Each people are wired different. You have made some great points. I always work towards “Live within your means”. Money can’t buy you happiness if you can’t manage your life choices.


GIRRRRRRRRL yes. 1. go ABOVE and beyond always. This is my motto! Do it better than they expected and really blow them (your audience, your sponsors and yourself) away!!!!!!! And goals. Always. Set. Goals!


The setting obtainable goals part is so crucial! There are many times that people are disappointed because the goals they set, in the beginning, were not practical. It’s always a good idea to make sure your goals are on target.


Great tips! And so true! It took me entirely too long to learn some of these! ALWAYS get up and try again!!


Very true! Motivation is the key to success!! Loved this post 🙂

Oh yes! If you fail at first, then try and try and try again until you get your goals.
