Most Will Never Be Successful, But Self-Improvement Can Increase Odds

Success, Job Advice, Career AdviceSuccess. It's what everyone wants, what we dream of, plan for and expect. Then why are so few people truly successful? According to Benjamin P. Hardy, writer and organizational psychologist, success eludes people who choose mediocre thinking.

Success can't be equated with material possessions and wealth. That brand of success without contentment is the worst kind of failure, an empty victory. True success is being the most "evolved" version of yourself. And it requires a conscious effort to achieve that.

Success is continuously improving who you are, how you live, how you serve, and how you relate.

Concentrate on the things that matter. Don't focus on "low frequency" things, people or activities. Let the irrelevant go. Minutiae are of little consequence. Rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic is not a productive use of time.

Use what assets you have for fine tuning every area of your life. Make "high quality" your mantra. What you put in your head, what you put in your mouth, who you allow in your life, must be high quality. Changing your belief system and expanding your vision takes courage. It’s so easy to revert back to small and mediocre thinking.

Check your self-improvement "vital signs". Are you only engaged in projects and activities that will improve your life? Are you demanding high quality of yourself and those with whom you interact? Make sure the answer to these is always yes.

Be consistent and recommit yourself to your goals, especially when you feel your resolve lagging. It’s so easy to revert back to small and mediocre thinking. But staying on task will reap rewards. You will never be perfect, but the process of evolving keeps you moving toward your best self. Striving for high quality becomes your way of life.

It's true that most people will never be successful, but you can.
