Have you ever taken the time to think about what success means to you? Is it a multitude of wealth, health and/or happiness? Is it the result of many years of blood, sweat and tears rather than targeted achievements?
In recent years, with all the advances made by technology, we often hear that we must work smarter not harder. It’s true that times have changed and we now have several tools and resources at our disposal to help get things done faster and better than ever before.
The problem, even within the scope of the technical advances, is that we don’t always feel successful and many times, we judge ourselves by saying things like; “I should be further along at my age.”, “I should have done more with my life.”, “If I did (fill in the blank), I could have (fill in the blank).”
The truth is that YOU were born to succeed: We all were. Success doesn’t have to feel like such a far reach either. Many of our adult learners feel this way, and we like to encourage them to take it one lesson at a time, one day or even one hour at a time.
A few questions you might want to ask yourself as you work your way toward a successful day and life are:
What if starting today, you were to look at success through a new pair of lenses. Imagine taking life one hour at a time or one lesson at a time. Every time you complete a specific task, celebrate and be grateful that you have the skills you need to succeed. Make note to always celebrate every success no matter how big or small they may be!
Do this and watch how the energy in your life shifts towards a successful outlook. Remember that if literacy is one of your challenges, there are many resources available, including Laubach Literacy NB. In just one hour a week for 24 weeks, you can change your life.
Just one day can put you on the road to success.
