We all go through ups and downs in life. Most of the experiences we encounter, either make us or break us. We can either learn from them or succumb to the uncertainty that lies around us. The choice is ours.

On the contrary, successful people view life with a different lens. For them, everyday is a new challenge and life is a risk they welcome with open arms. They are seldomly afraid and never look back. The only thing that matters to them is their own success and hard work; for which they are willing to give their 100%.

Our success depends on what kind of a person we wish to be. Around 80% of the people fail to achieve their goals because they do not have a clear vision of where they want to be. Purpose is one thread in the journey of life that makes us more of who we are; it makes us discover our true self. Purpose pulls. It makes us push our limits and tells us to never give up. 

Several notable people in the field of business and innovation have shared their own ideas of success. They have spoken about the kinds of habits and discipline routine that has always kept them on-the-go. It’s important to learn from the best. They have shared their experience and learnings for a better tomorrow; leaders who shall guide their followers on what success should actually look like.

  1. J.K. Rowling – The famous ‘Harry Potter’ series writer had a rough childhood. She never thought she could make it to the hall of fame. Yet her perseverance and determination made her write one of the most loved books in the history of writing. She says, “It’s all about who you want to be. Failure can only make you realise that life comes with surprises, open yours with all love.”
  2. Oprah WinfreyHaving endured the pangs of suffering, pain, agony and distress, Oprah has emerged as one of the leading ladies in the world of talk shows and inspiration. She has inspired everyone around to turn their lives upside down and believe in the beauty of their dreams. She has successfully launched OWN and now inspires millions to never give up and keep going, no matter what happens!

The famous author, Brian Tracy, has beautifully summed up the habits of successful people. Some people tend to make it a habit to follow what’s right. They are passionate about what they do, and that’s what takes them to great lengths. Here’s the list:

  1. They are action-oriented
  2. They are goal-oriented
  3. They are result-driven
  4. They are people oriented
  5. They are health conscious
  6. They are self-disciplined
  7. They are honest

“I have learned that champions aren’t just born; champions can be made when they embrace and commit to life-changing positive habits.” – Lewis Howes

Here are 3 things successful people do that makes them who they are:

1. Being the best at what they do

Consistency and discipline are the keys to a successful and prosperous future. When we are determined, we do not let anything come in the way of achieving our goals. 

Continuous improvement and practice is what makes successful people the best at what they do. They constantly improve themselves, read about stuff that matters, and never shy away from learning new things. This is one of the ingredients to their glory.

2. Not falling prey to the opinion of others

Someone once said, “If people are not laughing at you, your dreams are too small.” People who set out to do something different are most often ridiculed and criticized. The choice that they have is to listen to others and let them control what they do or simply move on and focus on their goals. Successful people focus on the latter. What the world thinks is none of their concern. People always talk otherwise.

“Habit is a cable; we weave a thread each day, and at last we cannot break it.” – Horace Mann

3. Learning from experience

We all encounter different kinds of situations in our lives. Some of us choose to fight while others choose to use the flight option. People who are made for success always fight; they learn from their mistakes and are constantly on the path of improving themselves. They do not stress over the past and find quick ways to move on. That’s what makes them always stay on-the-go and achieve success.

Successful people aren’t born or made, they create their own destiny. It’s always said that people who are successful are born with a silver spoon; which is just not true. Emerging from hardships and gathering the courage to pursue the best in life is worth the talk. Inspiration and motivation is all about finding new ways to live and never giving up. Life will always come with its own challenges and opportunities. We can only learn to live with them.

How Your Friends Determine Whether You Succeed or Not

Can anyone do without having friends? We all have our friends, we share ideas with them, talk together, have fun, and fight. Yes, that’s the baseline of friendship. But, do you know that aside from you, your friends can determine whether you achieve success or not?

There are two things in friendship which are the ability to ”love” and the ability to “influence”. This means you are loved and you are influenced. How do your friends affect your success in life? How are they one of the biggest deciding factors of your success? Let’s find out.

What type of friends do you keep? 

First, what type of friends do you keep? Who do you call your best friend? There are two different kinds of friends, good friends, and bad ones. A lot of people have lost their pathway to success and some have also found their road to success all because of the friends they keep, the people they mingle with. 

Who is your best friend? Answer carefully. Having a best friend means you find each other compatible and understanding. Analyze who your best friend is. If your best friend has not motivated you to do something positive, if who you call your bestie has never given you positive advice, lastly if your best friend has never informed and advised you on your shortcomings, then you don’t have a best friend.

This quote tells us “birds of the same feather flock together”. Countless people have changed from their good nature into a bad one all because of friends. One thing to note is, “negative people move with negative aura”. If your best friend is filled with negativity inside-out then you will surely be affected by his/her negative aura.

They influence your success with positivity or negativity 

The friends you keep can either influence you with positivity or negativity because your friends have the power to change your kind of person completely. 

This is how your friends influence you:

  1. They influence you indirectly with what they do
  2. They influence you directly by teaching and giving you advice 

Yes, that is how they influence you. For instance, you watch a movie and you like the way the actor walks. The question is if you truly like the way the actor walks, won’t you try to imitate the actor? Of course, you will.

Just the way you imitate the actor is the same way your friends can influence you with their character. However, the funny part is, they don’t have to teach you to do things like them. You just find yourself imitating and copying them gradually.

An important question to ask is, are you imitating a good friend or a bad one? If you imitate a good friend then you will be good, but if you imitate a bad person, you will surely become a bad person.

Everyone wants to succeed, a good friend will always teach, enlighten, and motivate you for success. A bad friend will only motivate you to do evil things (smoking, drinking, fight, envy,).

And you should know that things like that are a great enemy of success and even of God. So, if you have these bad elements in your life, how will you achieve success? There is no way!

And also, they can teach and advise you directly. But, what do your friends teach you? When you ask them for advice do they inspire you positively or teach you the bad stuff.? A lot of people have regretted lifelong decisions just by listening to the advice of friends. 

The company you keep has the power to influence and change you. Never forget that a positive influence will teach, motivate, and brush you up for success. While a negative influence will inspire you to become a bad person, change your good nature, and leave you with regrets in the end.

Here Are 4 Reasons Why You Should Have a Podcast, Youtube Channel or Online Show

why you should have a podcast

Confidence comes from a place of strong understanding of self. After close to three years on radio, I’ve grown from a shy introvert to a shy introvert with an extrovert persona. When the mic is turned on, I can channel a version of myself that some say is attractive, strong, and of course, confident but it wasn’t always this way.

What I want to share with you is what I discovered on this journey into broadcast that you can apply to your life, your ventures, and your personal development. This doesn’t require any fancy gear. It does require a leap of faith on your part because once you go down the road of media; it can change your life.

1. Perceived Expertise

When you go to a doctor, you expect their knowledge will guide them to a solution to your problems. When you have a show, you become your listeners’ doctor. For all the multiple thousands, maybe millions, of YouTube channels, podcasts, and user-created content in the world, each person that gets behind a mic takes a position on their passion, their opinions, and their themes.

They challenge the status quo for the benefit of their listeners in hopes to entertain and educate. With consistency on your side, those fans place you on a platform and give you permission to influence them.

2. Global Acknowledgement

One of the benefits to increasing confidence is when you receive thank you notes from people you may never meet. The feeling of enriching someone’s life from halfway around the globe, provides validation you’re enhancing someone else’s life with your wisdom and your wit.

The very first time I was told I was making a difference in someone’s life in a country other than my own, I felt like I caused massive impact that transcends my circle of influence. When you experience just how much you can cause impact and it comes back to you, it’ll change your worldview.

“Be grateful for what you have and stop complaining – it bores everybody else, does you no good, and doesn’t solve any problems.” – Zig Ziglar

3. Backed By Numbers

One of the most exciting ways to measure success is to quantify your growth. It’s not enough to just broadcast. Having subscribers and downloads helps to know, numerically, how well you’re doing. Word of caution. This can be a way to set yourself up for distress because of number envy but if you understand what the numbers mean; you can control the narrative of the numbers.

The major number that makes most people smile is 10,000. I’d advise it to be 1. Here’s why. As you grow in your industry, so does your reach. If you learned that the one person that subscribed totally changed for the better because of you, wouldn’t that be worth the effort?

4. Effective Communication

While it’s not talked about much, having a show is documentation. You create a dynamic account of your life, your industry, and the pulse on what’s important simply by having a show. When you find a channel to improve your communication skills, you demand attention and people will listen to you. You become more trusted as a leader and people will follow you once they believe you can lead them to their wants and needs.

“To effectively communicate, we must realize that we are all different in the way we perceive the world and use this understanding as a guide to our communication with others.” – Tony Robbins

These insights have helped many people become leaders and, ultimately, move others to their best selves. It’s worked for me and I hope it works for you. At the end of the day, it’s all about showing up and showing out.
