10 Tips for Consistent Personal Growth

Aug 12, 2019

The Consistency Issue of SUCCESS magazine is a guidebook for lifelong learning, establishing positive habits and the dogged pursuit of bold dreams, i.e. consistent personal growth. Inside, you’ll find articles on things like power habits and super growth, the perfect morning routine and how to unleash creativity, and so much more. The best part is that you can turn all of the advice you read into immediate results with these 10 steps:

1. Get a little trippy.

Overwork may be necessary sometimes, but should not be your default mode, as it leads to burnout. If you’re sensing its effects, plan a little getaway and ease off the throttle.

2. Lose control.

To get the most done, you cannot do it all. Delegation is an important skill for any leader. It may go against your perfectionist nature, but you need to trust the people around you.

3. Re-enroll.

The same concepts that educators bring to lesson-planning can help you in lifelong learning. What skill do you need to improve drastically on? Plan a nine-month curriculum for it this weekend.

4. Dream big.

What do you want to do with the rest of your life? Maybe you’re imagining a career change or something significant to occupy you in retirement. Get clarity with a lengthy journaling session.

5. Get the worm.

Take two weeks to give Robin Sharma’s 20-20-20 method a try. Wake up at 5 a.m. to spend 20 minutes exercising, 20 minutes in prayer or reflection, and 20 minutes focused on personal growth.

6. Lead yourself.

Know that the success of the people around you is vital to the team’s success, and their success is largely dependent on you. Make it a personal goal to read at least one leadership book per quarter.

7. Set a stretch goal.

To achieve his highest-grossing month ever, our solopreneur writer needed only to reframe his personal expectations. Commit to doing more than you thought possible by writing down a big goal.

8. Have no fear.

When we’re growing, we’re also bound to stumble and fall. Failure is a crucial aspect of success. If you’re worried about an upcoming result, try sketching out its potential benefits.

9. Find a mentor.

Kathy Ireland credits many of her achievements to the lessons she’s learned from her many mentors. If you don’t have one, ask around locally. Find out who can teach you something you don’t know.

10. Build a universe.

If creativity is part of your work and life, make a concerted effort to not constrain yourself with artificial limits. What other applications of your creativity have you not considered?

How to measure success

Jul 10, 2019

Not all define success in the same way. While there might be different personal meanings of success, we can actually measure our own success based on how it makes us feel about ourselves. Simply making so much money, becoming a big shot or attaining a positive result is not personal success.

Analyze and determine the goals

Before you start to measure or even consider whether you have attained success, try to analyze and determine the goals, needs and also desires. What might signify success for some will not be the result for others, so it’s easily understood why the success concept is so hard to achieve or also define. You can consider yourself successful, if your actions have given you a sense of well being, pleasure and also adds personal belief, satisfaction, self – liking and confidence.

Success is not completely about one’s result, either. If you are satisfied with your journey and how do you get there? Do you love what you have done, as well as associated results? Do you love what you are doing and you are pleased and satisfied with the course life has offered out for you, or more essentially, the course you have set out for yourself? How do you truly feel about yourself and what you do?

In reality, regardless of what changes itself as success to you, personal success is a kind of inner heroism. Who is your hero and what them a hero? If you don’t include yourself in that list, then chances are that you don’t really think yourself as being a success. So believe in you. Whatever success means to you, when you have received it, the way you will know is by how it makes you feel.
