THINGS TO PONDER UPON... hmm
are you satisfied with your life?
do you have zest for life?
do you feel needed?
do you have plans for the future?
do you suffer from loneliness?
do you feel yourself depressed?

WHAT IS SUCCESS?
success is the accomplishment of an aim or purpose
it is about getting all that you wanted to have
finding that you have achieved your goals or fulfilled your plans
waking up in the morning feeling victorious rather than feeling defeated
HOW TO BE SUCCESSFUL!
1. DEFINE YOUR GOALS
We all have a different definition of success and making your very own clear definition is the first step towards your journey towards it.
2. SURROUND YOURSELF WITH POSITIVE PEOPLE
Attitudes are infectious so, the attitude, outlook and actions of the people that you associate or interact with on a regular basis have a very significant influence on your attitude and actions.
3. LEARN TO VISUALIZE
“The body won’t go where the mind has not gone to first.” Visualization is a way to allow your mind to see your future and your goals.
4. ALWAYS BE GRATEFUL
This means that maintaining a spirit of gratefulness could greatly help you hurdle through life’s obstacles.
5. COMMIT TO NEVER GIVING UP
success will never come automatically therefore you need to commit yourself to never giving up no matter what.

"I GIVE UP!"

difference between what we have and what we want
reducing have-want discrepancy in life
3. To attune the "value perceptions" of life

(Wu. et. al., 2008)
EQUATION TO LIFE SATISFACTION:
Positive Beliefs:
sense of control
optimism
self-enhancement
SELF-ESTEEM
HAVE-WANT DISCREPANCY
SHIFTING TENDENCY
LIFE SATISFACTION
WAYS TO STAY POSITIVE:
* FOSTER OPTIMISM
trying to be optimistic doesn't mean ignoring the uglier sides of life
* PRACTICE GRATITUDE
noticing and appreciating the positives in our lives
* AVOID NEGATIVE THINKING
if you want to feel positive, it pays to decrease the downers in your life
SACRIFICES IN BECOMING SUCCESSFUL?
* Give up the habit of waiting
the way you spend your time defines who you are. You don’t get to choose how you are going to die, or when; you can only decide how you are going to live right now.
* Give up the excuses
Sooner or later you will come to realize that it’s not what you lose along the way that counts; it’s what you do with what you still have.
* Give up trying to be perfect
When we embrace who we are and decide to be authentic, instead of perfect, we open ourselves up to real relationships, real happiness, and real success.
* Give up doing things you know are wrong
Nothing is more damaging to you than doing something that you believe is wrong. Your beliefs alone don’t help you grow and thrive, your behavior and actions do.
* Give up worrying about past failures
Accept your past without regret, handle your presence with confidence, and face your future without fear.
in order to be successful you have to keep a positive attitude.
success consist of going from failure to failure without the loss of enthusiasm.
