We have reached the final part of 10 Skills Needed for Success! I hope that the past few blog posts have been good and you have started applying the skills already! *Still crossing my fingers*
We’ll finish up this series with the last two skills!
SKILL#9: SWITCHING BACK
Have you ever met people who tell you, “It’s impossible!” wherever you share with them your dreams or ideas. And what happens? We become automatically programmed to think our ideas are ridiculous without even bothering to share with or tell others of our dreams, ambitions and goals. And this inhibits our success!
So we need to change ourselves and switch back to even child-like naivety, from ”I can’t” to “I can” and “ It’s impossible!” to “It’s possible!”.
Heyhey.. It’s a Saturday afternoon and I’m lazing around, thinking what to do before heading down to town (Orchard Rd) for the Chingay Parade (an annual carnival held after CNY)..
Well, why not continue to share with you the other skills needed for success! We stopped at Skill #5 yesterday. So, have u started implementing them??? I hope so~! *crosses fingers*
SKILL#6: DELETING YOUR FAILURES
In order to achieve success, we have to learn from our mistakes and failures. But we also need to put them behind us and move on.
Success is deletion of your failures.
You need to learn from your failures, pick up the learning tips and delete them away! By deleting, I mean, not to let similar incidents from happening again!
You need to know where, why and how you went wrong. If you’re clueless, find an expert from the list you developed earlier (See SKILL#5) to tell you and guide you!
If not, be an independent learner and find out your mistakes on your own! (See SKILL#2: Gear 3)
Exercise: List down your failures and what you have learnt from the experience. Commit them to memory and exercise the correct practice. After which, cancel these failures from the list and delete them away!
SKILL#7: COMMITING TO OUTCOME
Commit yourself to the outcome or your goal. Convince yourself why and how much you want the success. You need to remain undeterred despite facing obstacles. You need to make sure that you don’t give yourself excuses or exceptions!
Ask yourself, how committed are you to achieving your success?
I’m sooo excited to share with you the other skills needed for success that I’m blogging it right before I head off to bed. Technically, it’s a brand new day yet again! Coz.. it’s now around 12:39am in the morning. So welcome to a brand new day!
Did you implement the 2 skills you learnt earlier on? I hope you did! Recording down your successes to remind you of your strengths can motivate you in times of despair and disappointment and knowing which gear level you are at, can help you to learn and better equip yourself with the skills and knowledge you need to attain success.
So.. let’s continue on our journey of learning the 10 skills!
SKILL #3: DREAMING
When was the last time you dreamt about becoming someone, doing something or reaching somewhere? What are your ambitions? If you are dumbfounded, well, I’m not surprised.
Many of us have been forced to eradicate their dreams because of society and its expectations. Well, I was one of them.
BUT You must make a change this moment and create your dream and live it!
Whatever your dream is, it’s important that you seek to achieve it and not let it just be an imagination.
It’s a brand new day… And it’s important to start the brand new day right!
As for me, to start this brand new day, I decided to share with you the first 2 skills that you need in order to achieve the success you want!
It’s easier said than done though.. because it requires you to fully commit yourself to changing your beliefs of yourself and also to build up your self-confidence which is crucial for your success!
So, take action after reading the post okie!
SKILL #1: SUCCESS-FILING
Note down or to file the incidents where you have enjoyed success. It’s often when I ask people, “what are your achievements?” or “what are you good at?” and they get stumped when I ask them to list 20 incidents where they were successful or they achieved something. Most are able to provide me with at most 5 items.
It is important that you remember the occasions where you are successful. Even if these occasions are so small such as successfully take a scary rollercoaster ride when you are scared of heights. These little successes help you to go a long way because you realize that you are capable of achieving success even in your daily life!
Remembering success boosts our self-confidence and having confidence ensures a good start to our success. With confidence, comes respect and admiration from others who might be able to help us along the way.
Everyone wants to be successful in whatever they do, right?
Students want to be successful in their academics where they obtain the best grades.
Working professionals want to achieve success which are determined by promotions and pay raises.
Parents want to be successful in parenting where they want to educate their children and hopefully see them grow up to be conscientious, good and well, successful individuals.
But is everyone successful? Or do they achieve the success they want? I doubt so. In fact, I don’t achieve success all the time too.
However, it’s important that we don’t lose heart at the things in which we want to achieve success in. In fact, we should continuously equip ourselves with the skills needed for us to always achieve the success we want.
I had the chance to come across a book which dictates the 10 skills that you will need in order to achieve success and I’m going to share them with you. Well, I’m not saying that these skills ensure that you do not encounter failures but at least, they can guarantee that you are on the path of success.
Curious to know what the 10 skills are? Well, I’ll be sharing them with you what these 10 skills are, in the next 4 blog posts. And as I reveal them to you through the next few blog posts, I hope that you’ll learn to apply them as soon as possible in order for you to start you off on your journey of success.
