By Vivek Bindra

Road to success is through the mountain of failures, even a kid who is learning to walk falls 10 times to take few proper steps. This is the first ever lesson that humanity took from life experiences to succeed, the perseverance to achieve a goal has led to development of human race where we have passed various ages like stone, bronze, iron etc.

Five New Habits to Help You Reach Your Goals Faster

By Kevin Eikenberry

If we already knew how to achieve a goal, and had done it before, it wouldn’t be much of a goal, would it? In other words, we’d have already achieved it. Yet too often we treat goal achievement like the rest of the work. We put the time in to set the goals, and then we magically expect them to achieve them during the year, even if we don’t really change our behavior or our calendar.

How to Stay On Track for Your Goals

By Ali Luke

What big goals do you have at the moment? Perhaps you’re trying to lose weight, get fit, write a book, redecorate the house, or start your own business. Maybe you’re tackling several different goals all at once.

Often, it’s easy to feel motivated and inspired at the start of a new goal: we start new diets on Mondays, or begin new years’ resolutions on January 1st, and things go smoothly for a few days. Sadly, that initial enthusiasm soon wanes – and it’s easy to end up abandoning our goals.

Here’s how you can stay on track with your goals, whatever they are: Read more

5 Daily Habits of Highly Successful People

By Kimanzi Constable

We all know that habits can either help or hurt your success in life. Bad habits can fester and grow into a lifestyle that takes you away from the things you want to do—and good habits can help you create a life that’s full of action and accomplishment.

If you were to look at someone you respect, someone who’s successful, you would see that they spend each day doing the things that help them accomplish their biggest goals. This isn’t to say they’re perfect—because no one is—but despite the things that are not perfect in their lives, they continue to make moves that have a positive impact. And it starts with their daily habits.

Now, while we can all study successful habits, it’s meaningless if we don’t implement that knowledge. So here are five daily habits of highly successful people—habits you can adopt to create the life you truly want to live: Read more

10 Simple Habits To Grow A Positive Attitude

By Megan Wycklendt

The Challenge: Having a negative attitude keeps us from being happy and impacts the people we interact with.
The Science: Science tells us that having a positive attitude has a direct connection with happiness and success.
The Solution: Make positivity a habit by making these small adjustments to your daily life and mindset!

Our life is a reflection of our attitude. Without even noticing it, it can be easy to become negative and cynical towards the world as we are continuously exposed to  tragedy and injustice in the media and as we experience our own heartache and distress.

Not only is a negative attitude preventing you from fully enjoying your life, it can have a significant impact on your environment. The energy a person brings with them is contagious. One of the best things you can offer your family, organization or community is your positive attitude.

In the wise words of Michael Jackson, “If you want to make the world a better place, take a look at yourself and make a change.” As creatures of habit, by making small adjustments to your daily life and mindset, positive habits can be formed to make yourself and everyone you interact with happier.  Here is a list of 10 habits that can turn a gloomy outlook into an effortlessly optimistic attitude.  Read more

Slow Down to Get Ahead

By Dawa Tarchin Phillips

Time. It’s our most coveted resource because of its scarcity. In an effort to falsely gain time during the day we rush through tasks, projects, and our lives. But we cannot be fully present to life or to our craft when we rush. We can lose our vision and clarity for success. In reactive mindsets, goals blur. We get sloppy.

Rushing hinders our capacity to be intellectually and emotionally available, and capture the opportunities that surface in the present moment. When we slow down and move through our activity with greater mindfulness we are more likely to act with the full power available to us in the present moment. Read more
