Overnight Success Comes with a Long Journey: Seven Secrets to Achieving Success in Your Life!

by Ed Sykes


success, road, success road, Ed Sykes, motivational speaker, The Sykes GroupSuccess is expected overnight in the fast-paced, high-tech, time-sensitive world we live in today. Everyone sees the success, but not many see the journey one took to achieve that success. It’s like the following scenario:

First Friend: “Boy am I impressed, you are an overnight success!”

Second Friend: “Thanks, my success was twenty years in the making.”

You must be willing to travel a long, winding road to eventually get to your destination. There will be many obstacles along the way. The following are seven success secrets that will help you achieve more success in a shorter time in your life:

  1. Know What You Want - This is easier said than done. Invest in the time to develop your goals. Develop goals in the personal, family, healthy, spirituality, etc. areas to create balance in your life. Your goals will be the start of your roadmap.

  2. Ignore the Naysayers – You will run into many people who would love to give you their opinion on why you will not be successful. These naysayers may even be your friends and relatives. Ignore the naysayers and listen to the people who can give you advice on how to be successful.

  3. Be Willing to Give 110% - I have personally seen many individuals give a half-hearted effort to achieve success and then wonder why they didn’t achieve their goals. To be successful, you must have a burning desire to reach your goal. With your burning desire, you will develop the effort and the energy to move towards your goal.

  4. Be the Expert – Whatever you want to do, gain the knowledge to be the expert in your field. Take classes, ask other experts, read industry journals, and surf the internet for the information you need to achieve success in your field. Like I always say, “The person in their field gets paid far more than a person in their field.” Be the person in your field who is recognized as an authority and is paid for their expertise.

  5. Be Willing to Fail – If you are not failing, your goals are not high enough. Get out of your safety zone and stretch yourself. Remember, failing along the way to your success is natural. Learn from your failure and gain the experience for future challenges.

  6. Focus, Focus, Focus – Concentrate on your success goals. Eliminate any distractions that might lead you astray. Go back over your success goals on a daily basis and make the hard choices to eliminate people, resources and activities that do not take you closer to your success. It is not easy, but it will be well worth it in the long run.

  7. Develop your Support Group – Develop a mastermind group of people who will share their experience and expertise with you. This mastermind group will be supportive of your success journey and give you the necessary feedback required to make your trip successful. Their valuable advice may not be what you want to hear, but it will be just what you need to hear.

    Remember, your success is a never-ending journey. You will need the skills and resources to make your success trip successful. Apply the seven success secrets to your journey and your trip will be enjoyable and successful.
