Success means the imagination of wealth; to be in possession of power; or just want to make a positive impact on the world.
1. Having A Big Picture Of Success
Having a big picture is a crucial step to success.
And this comes from understanding the desire of the heart, and believing in the big picture of the heart without allowing the limiting mental thoughts like background, financial incapabilities e.t.c. to overcome the dream.
Oftentimes, people often decided to put their big picture aside for something more “realistic”. To give up their dream for something easier. Success shouldn’t be traded.
2. Finding The Passion
Successful people are passionate people, most successful people became successful and bring to reality their big picture because of their passion that kept them going through rejection, disappointment and failures.
To become successful do something you are passionate about, it helps to build commitment and devoteness towards success.
Trying to become successful at something you don’t love or have passion for is one of the most frustrating activities someone can embark on.
3. Success in all ramifications.

Many people seek success in business and their personal live suffer. The true success in life comes in managing time and priotizing your relationships, work, finances e.t.c to achieve success in all ramifications of life is the true success.
4. Embrace And Learn From Failure
Failure is part of journey to success. Most successful people had failed at one point or the other, before becoming successful.
To be successful, learning and understanding the purpose of the failure play an important role.
Albert Einstein, the genius physicist said “A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new.”
Learning from mistake is important skill successful people mastered.
5. Unwavering Determination To Succeed
Great determination is needed for success, a great determination that no matter the economy of my nation, my background, what people say e.t.c. I will pursue success and I will attain success.
Without great determination, some successful people will stop when the going get tough, but with there determination when the journey of success becomes tough they become tougher.
Just like Colonel Sanders, Founder of KFC once said “I made a resolve then that I was going to amount to something if I could. And no hours, nor amount of labor, nor amount of money would deter me from giving the best that there was in me. And I have done that ever since, and I win by it. I know.”
6. Man of Action, Words is Cheap
Talk is cheap, action is what matters. Someone once said that “the greatest distance between what you say you will do and when you are doing it might be a parallel line” the quote is funny and true.
To be successful in life, you must act to make your ideas a reality.
Successful people are people who are confident enough to bring their ideas to market.
7. Positive And Healthy Relationships
Cultivate positive and healthy relationships, surround yourself with like minded people, you want to soar high like eagle and you surround yourself with chickens, there is no soaring. Surround yourself with people who encourage, believe and motivate you.
Stay away from negative people, negative words poison the soul.
8. Don’t Be Afraid Of Taking The Step

Be courageous and take the step needed to achieve the success you desire. Remember no one start with the word “yes” being frequently heard.
You are going to be tested, and when you are being tested through rejection or disappointment.
