oakstone international executive search rules to follow to be successful

There is no secret to being successful.  Hard work, dedication, vision. We’ve heard it all, but what else goes into being successful? According to Entrepreneur Tony Robbins these qualities and beliefs are vital to becoming successful.

1.       Believing that anything is possible

Successful people believe that anything is possible, as long as they work hard enough. Successful people ignore negative feedback and take on board constructive criticism to grow, develop and succeed.

2.       There is no such thing as failure

Failure is not an option.  Successful people may fall but they will always get back up again. Everything is a learning opportunity and you must make the most of what there is to learn.

3.       It’s in your hands

Successful people believe their success is their responsibility and not in the hands of others.

Whatever happens, take responsibility and don’t lean on others to determine whether you are successful or not.

4.       You don’t have to understand everything

You don’t have to have all the knowledge and understand everything! Making the most of a situation and learn as you go! No matter where you are in your career you can always learn something new.

Make the most of other’s knowledge to help you in any situation.

5.       Appreciate

Appreciate those around you – not only can you always learn something from someone but you should appreciate the assistance and support that people around you give.  Showing that you appreciate the people around you can encourage people to be more positive and they’re more likely to want to keep working with you.

6.       Enjoy what you do

To commit to something, you must enjoy it! Choose something you’re passionate about – you’ll be more inclined to work hard and more likely to be successful doing it.  The most remarkable people in their industries have all been passionate about what they do, whether you’re a software developer, software sales person, marketer or whatever.

7.       Commitment is key

Don’t try.  Commit. Commitment is the key to success.  ‘The most successful people aren’t necessarily the brightest or the smartest – it’s the people with the most commitment that are the most successful.’ – Tony Robbins.

All these points go hand in hand! If you love what you’re doing you’re more likely to be more committed – and more likely to never take failure as a result!

It’s all within you and in your control!
