How to live a successful life 


 

What does success mean to you?

How would you define it in your way of words?

Do you measure it by the goals you attain?

Is it what you have? Is it buying your first home? A car?

The definition of “success” is a “favourable outcome”. It is something you complete and a goal that is reached.

We all want to be successful in something. We all dream it. I know that when and if I do complete a Certificate in Library Studies, that will be a “success” for me! When you finish something with an inward happiness in heart, I believe that that is what success is.

If I reach the VISION that I set out in my About Page – that would be a success for me personally. My desire is to reach out to young girls all over Australia, and even other countries. I even received great feedback from a fan in Pakistan!

Everyone wants to be successful at something. It’s naturally a human thing!

I want to be successful in studies, (future and past) work, home, personal development and any other thing in life. Striving for or seeking to achieve things in life is my top priority, and I want to share with you some top bonus tips.

At the start of this blog I asked some very important questions.

If you answered these then that’s great! You are on your way to identifying your passions and understanding what it is that you really want to do!

1. Make lists

Make a list of your short term and long term goals. Write all your past and future goals down so you have something to strive for in your week, day, month!

I’m a huge list maker, and I love using sticky notes with everything I do. Sometimes I write down what I need to do for the next day and tick them off the following day to make myself feel like I have accomplished something.

2. Educate yourself

Read up on your passions. If you love cooking I’m sure the first thing you google is recipes! So whatever your passion is, google about it!!!!

Gaining knowledge in your area is the best thing you can do. Like for fitness, you learn all the muscles in the body, what the best supplements are and vitamins you need to take daily and what is the best protein shake to have to trim yourself up!

Learning is the best way to achieve anything in life.

3. Live in the moment

My advice is to hold dear to the time you’ve got! Live with purpose and excitement! Focus on every bit of goodness that you can’t remember the last negative comment that someone said!!! Live each and every day as if it is your last. So, appreciate the beauty in every activity of every second of every single day.

Staying true to yourself


I have recently been thinking a lot about what and how young girls think and do and act to fit in a world of boys, friendship, and closeness of peers.

I don’t know everything that goes on in the world, because I lived a pretty sheltered life myself, but I have a heart to reach out to girls that go through either cyber-bullying, peer pressure, and fights that go on in a circle of friends.

I like to stick to basics, and sticking to basics is the best way to go if you want to lead a simple, care – free life.

My top priority in staying true to myself is to:

 

  • Be a lady of quality

Some tips on Staying positive at work

1. Keep learning

Just because you are not at high school anymore, doesn’t mean that you have to stop learning. Learning is the key role to fill your position and On-the-job education is the best way to build up your resume. You need to “learn on the job” to get as much experience out of it, and focus on educating yourself in the long run. For example, even though I am not working I have been borrowing books at the library about London to keep me occupied. I am studying something out of passion.

2. Teach others what you know – I don’t know about most people, but I get joy from helping others with things that I know. For example, I worked in administration, and would know how to do things an accountant or lawyer might not even know!! Even if someone is higher up in a company, there are little things they might not even know!!!! I am currently volunteering at the local christian bookshop, and an elderly lady that worked there did not even know how to use a magnet book mark!!!

Doing things like this would keep me happy in a company for sure!!! When you know something, it keeps you happy.

I decided to share this as it was a discussion post that I put up on my Library Studies course. I figured it could help those trying to work in an environment of positivity at work… and it is nice to share my thoughts on something that people want to know as well.

The main thing is to keep happy! Even if it is hard, try and have an attitude that people strive for! Being happy is a successful thing in itself, and is the most important thing in life!

Well, I hope those two points have helped someone at least. I just wanted to share what my thoughts were on the subject.

Now, back to “Writing a job application” process on my ‘Guide to responding to selection criteria’! I am very excited to be doing this course……… It has been keeping me on my toes and busier than ever, thank goodness! I missed having a busy life! haha!
