Using the term "rules for success" in a search engine will bring up millions of different blogs, articles and reports written by self-help and personal growth gurus. Most of these types of articles focus on success a universally understood and accepted term with a concrete definition of success that typically relates to wealth, career and the amassing of property and valuables.
The problem with this definition of "success" or these rules is that they are simply not universal. People have their own dreams, goals and benchmarks in life that may fall very far to the side of these traditional and very monetarily-driven views of what it means to be successful.
When individuals attempt to use these arbitrary definitions of success and use the rules developed by others, they are constantly comparing themselves to an external and potentially irrelevant or unreachable standard. This type of comparison is very damaging over the long term and can result in people simply giving up on trying to achieve what they see as increasing unsatisfactory end-results.
The answer to this problem is to chart your own path and develop your own rules for success. Looking internally to what is of importance, what causes joy and happiness and what makes you feel satisfied allows you to develop meaningful goals and a strategy to continually work towards these goals.
Take Inventory of Success
Before you can start to make rules to help you to achieve success, you have to know what that word means to you. Take the time to consider, without comparing it to what others want for you or what society may say is the definition, just what success means in your life.
Make a list of the things that you can accomplish in your life that will make you feel successful. It can be traditional concepts such as a career, building a family, specific resources, or a particular accomplishment. It can also be uniquely your own such as learning a new language, travel, participating in a charity, spending time with your family or perhaps in taking up a cause in your community.
Develop a Plan
Once you have goals in mind, start to develop a plan to achieve these goals. Break the big goal down into small steps and map it out in written form. Be reasonable and realistic, but believe in yourself that you have the ability to make it happen by taking the steps needed to achieve that goal.
Get Rid of Clutter
Clutter is not just untidiness in your home or office. It can also be people that are negative in your life or thoughts that you have that are holding you back. If you have internal clutter, talking to a counsellor or therapist can help to replace negative and harmful ideas and thoughts with positive, beneficial thoughts to move you forward.
Create Balance and Harmony
One of the most important rules for success is to find personal balance and harmony in your life. Being driven to success can be a positive attribute, but it can also become self-destructive.
Spending time enjoying your time with friends, family and nature, doing things that bring you happiness and personal satisfaction as well as being good to your mind and your body should be an essential part of any pathway to success.
