20 Criteria for Your Success – Part 3

June 2, 2013


13. The strength to maintain your independence: Independent acting for most tasks in life is a prerequisite. If the ability to develop this fails, success at school and later professional success may be at high risk. Even in teamwork  independent work and thinking is expected. People with success orientation rely primarily on themselves, they act naturally and confidently taking the responsibility for their actions.

14. The strength to overcome personal difficulties: Personal crises usually affect all areas of life, even professional life. Performance-oriented people have realized, that it was not the right way to avoid personal difficulties as well as unpleasant situations, yet they separate their work and private life as much as possible.

15.The ability to concentrate on your goals: Intelligence is not a prerequisite for concentration. Many people never manage to get some time to focus only on one thing. Success-oriented persons are able to focus without too much trouble on the important things. They know the conditions under which they can operate most effectively, and provide this to their own advantage.

16. The ability to find the right balance between overload and under load for themselves: Too much ambition can be harmful: Who is overrated and exacts too much, will hardly achieve his/her goals despite dedication and hard work. Just as harmful may be under-challenged, as personal qualities are not used as they should be, and in addition opportunities may be missed. People with a winning spirit  know how to use their capacities best and also share their time to improve performance correctly.

17. The strength to develop patience in waiting is rewarded: In order to achieve success you need to see it as a lengthy process using the legitimate desire for appropriate recognition, even if  the reward is for a long time often ignored. This desire brings many people to participate only in tasks that are to be realized in a relatively short time, while larger, longer-term projects are designed to remain unrealized. Although people with successful intelligence perceive the small rewards of life, however, they  focus primarily on the things that give them the greatest long-term achievement.

How are you  getting along  to implement  these points?

They are important if we are a freelance,  an entrepreneur or even an employee. However, everyone who applies for a job can use these points to further develop his/ her strengths.

Part 2

7. The ability to finish work in progress as well: People with success orientation are not “drop-outs”, things that have been started are mostly done by them till the end. The fear of the “Next”, which leaves many people procrastinating them is largely unknown. They will find always a new and rewarding task.

8. The ability to take the initiative: Each initiative represents a binding to a situation and related consequences. Inhibition of being able to engage in something that is one of the main reasons why people are reluctant to take the initiative. The fear of liability prevents many from entering into a deeper relationship with another human being. Success-oriented individuals have the ability to be responsibly engaged in something, and thus also not afraid to feel life in front of “positive” consequences.

9. The strength to not be afraid of failures: All people make mistakes, and no one intentionally commits them . However, what distinguishes people, are the consequences . Many people develop a fear of failure, which was usually develop in childhood and is a blockage for success-oriented actions. However, making a mistake is not the same as failure. Also, of course, success-oriented people make mistakes, but they make the same mistake – usually – not again. To learn from mistakes and correcting them is an important aspect of the success orientation.

10. The ability not to push things on the back burner: Many people claim that they can work better under pressure. However, this coping strategy is usually very problematic; it is proven that almost all tasks would be qualitatively better if you used the appropriate time for it. That  procrastination in the workplace has a negative effect, is only a consequence. People with performance orientation therefore divide their time so that they can do their jobs well.

11. The strength to be able to accept legitimate criticism: People who are too sure of themselves are thinking, that they are almost invariably and are looking for someone to blame for every mistake they made. But false accusations can lead  in private and professional life to serious negative consequences. People with a winning spirit take responsibility for mistakes, they do not require any excuses and to transfer their guilt on others. Accepting  an error can infer internal size and offers the chance to learn from it.

12. The strength not to regret independently: Permanent self-pity is counter-productive and creates exactly the opposite of what was actually hoping intuitive: attention. Instead, people react with growing impatience and finally turn away. People with focus on success instead use every effort to change unfavourable situations as quickly as possible and fall back into balance.

Take 100% responsibility for your life

February 5, 2012

“You must take personal responsibility. You can notice the circumstances, the seasons nor the wind does change, only you yourself can change “~ Jim Rohn

The most widespread myth in modern times is that we firmly believe that we have a right to a great life – that somehow, somewhere, someone (certainly not us) enriches our lives with continual happiness, exciting career, wonderful options and a relaxed family time as well as blissful personal relationships that only exist because we exist. You can do this only if you are actively working for these goals.
Because the truth is that there is only one person is responsible for the quality of your life.

That person is YOU.

If you want to be successful and achieve your goals, you have to take 100% responsibility for everything that happens in your life. This includes your level of performance, the results you produce, the quality of your relationships, your state of health and physical fitness, your income, your debts, your feelings – everything!
Most of us have been conditioned, however, that we blame anyone, anything outside of ourselves for the things in our lives that are not good. We blame our parents, our teachers, our boss, the media, our employees, our partners, the weather, politics or economics. Does blaming change anything in your life? Absolutely nothing, because you always have to remember that only your thoughts are responsible for your reality. And therefore the only thing you need to do, if you want to change something, take responsibility. There is no other way.
I found the following simple formula by Jack Canfield:

E + R= O

Event + Response = Outcome

The idea is that every outcome is determined by the event and the response. It does not matter whether it is success or failure, wealth or poverty, health or sickness, fun or frustration. If you think the result is not good, there are only two possibilities:
First You can give the event the blame for the lack of results.
In other words, you can blame everybody: your spouse, your children, society, your boss, your colleagues, the crisis of politics or the lack of support. These factors are there, no doubt, but if this were the deciding factor never anyone would be successful.

Bill Gates would never have founded Microsoft; Daniel Vettel never won the Grand Prix. Steve Jobs never would have put Apple in place. They certainly have had the same circumstances and become successful anyway. You can join them, if you take responsibility.

Blaming others you set yourself limits. Assigning guilt means that you give up or do not dare to succeed. Many people leave the so-called limiting factors behind them, so it cannot be the factors that limit you. The reasons on the outside are not keeping you away from success, it is always YOU. You limit yourself, because when you put your thoughts and barriers up, you fall into the defending behavior. We defend ourselves even with self-destructive habits (like smoking and drinking) with inexcusable logic.

Analyze your behavior and make a list of positive and negative habits. The next step is to capture the thoughts, which create the negative habits. Only when you change these thoughts, you can reach success.

Next Step is following

Successful thinking and acting

January 22, 2012

Thoughts and attitudes

The inner game of success largely depends on your thoughts, beliefs and feelings.
Key factor is the change of your thoughts. You have to think not only positive, but think, feel and act like a millionaire.


“You do not need more energy to live a life of abundance, than leading a life in poverty!” Napoleon Hill

So you have the choice! You do not need continue with a life that you’re living it now. If there is more you want to have or experience in this life then change your mind.
Everybody wants more money. Why, however, are there only 10 million millionaires worldwide. These are 0.15% of the world’s population.

We believe that the most millionaires are in the U.S. There are only 5% that are successful and 95% of entrepreneurs who are unsuccessful. In the rest of the world situation is similar or even worse.

What but the 5% do differently?

There are millionaires with a university degree and those with very little training.
There are millionaires who were born rich. And there are millionaires who were once homeless and bankrupt.

There are millionaires in developed countries, but also in poor nations. There are plumbers who are millionaires, and doctors who starve. The most esoteric people are poor.

There is only one quality that distinguishes the rich people …

Wealthy people understand the world and use the Law of Attraction in their daily lives.
They understand that abundance is there to share it. It’s not about winning and losing – there is enough for all of us! We could all be rich. The universe represents abundance and it will always be like that.

We human beings must learn to develop the correct thought process to attract wealth.

How do you feel in terms of wealth?

Believe me it is not possible to lead a full life, unless you’re rich. In order to develop your soul and to develop your  talents, it takes a lot and there are things you cannot  buy without the necessary money.

How do you feel with this statement?

Write down your spontaneous answers. They are hints for your blockages.

Many people feel uncomfortable talking about money. Your feeling is a conscious perception of vibration in yourself. If you feel uncomfortable, to believe that you deserve to be rich, it is because the idea is foreign to you and not anchored in your subconscious mind.
I’ll help you on your feelings to work, until the thought that feels good.

Have you ever noticed that wealthy people feel very comfortable talking about money? Rich people know that wealth is necessary to do great things. You know, that it depends on their physical presence to do something good without money. In addition, money is always needed.

At one point in their life they made a decision to expand their physical boundaries – they offer their services or products to a wider audience and make them accessible. And when they did so, the wealth started automatically.

You must just leave your comfort zone! Start to think BIG!

What are fears and where do they come from?

August 20, 2011

It is fact that most people grew up with fears and worries and consider that as normal. Therefore they consider that these intense feelings are a part of their life as breathing is. This we have absorbed almost as the breast milk. So if we do not know anything else, it seems to us that to be the most normal thing in the world.

Yes, and not even if we are seriously ill, we know the causes behind illness. We just do not want to look behind the reasons, just because we or our subconscious knows nothing else. If you do not want to let your subconscious mind to govern your life, it means irrevocably that you will have to take action and responsibility for your life! On the other hand, who has told you as a child that is possible to lead life without any worries? As an adult that cannot be an excuse. We all strive for inner peace, but do not find the way. That may change now, if you are ready to take responsibility.
The very first step is the will to accept responsibility for your thoughts, feelings and actions. Stop at once to blame others for your plight. It is not your partner, your children, your boss, politics, crisis, or even your parents. It is only you who can reach different results in your life. And only you decide which way you go. Do you choose the way to a juicy and more successful life or the way to illness or even depression?

“Who does not know how to fight fear and worry, dies early” ~ Dr. Alexis Carrel

Worries and anxieties play a role in high blood pressure, heart and stomach ailments, even at rheumatism.
Your reality reflects your thoughts. So change your thoughts and stay healthy!

Universal Love

January 15, 2011

How do you start to love everyone?
First you need to learn to love yourself. There is no reason to condemn yourself, or even to hate yourself. We are all from the one infinite energy; some call it God, Allah or Yahweh. For me it is the Universe. Since we are all energy, we are also a part of God. No reason to treat this part of God, who you are, badly. Only if you love yourself unconditionally, you can give love to others.

Another important step is to stop evaluating anything or anyone. Then you can get rid of your prejudices. Check any prejudice that you have, whether it makes sense or not. Then you realize, namely, whether it is your own prejudice due to a bad experience. In general, however, such paradigms are inherited, that means you have taken it over from somebody else.

Such prejudices come from your family and later the public opinion. But are you the public opinion?

Why do you want to limit yourself with such a useless burden and beliefs?
So get clear what you can get rid and make space for new information. To change your attitudes give your subconscious supporting information that you bring your goals.

Begin to see diversity as enrichment. You do this if you go to Greek, Italian, Indian, Turkish or Portuguese restaurants or cook even after such recipes. However, are you able to love these people from these countries unconditionally? These people often live in your neighborhood.

Peace can only be achieved if we learn to love all people. This is a shorter or longer learning process that depends on where you now stand.
But why not just start NOW? What prevents you
– to love yourself?
– to check your prejudices and then to successfully throw them overboard?

Just make the first step on your way to a happier and more successful life.
