We've come to believe that wealth can be had without effort. But if we want to reach the pinnacle of success, we need a strong desire to achieve. That comes from being motivated to achieve goals.

Achievement is what every one is designed for. Everyone has skills and talents that can be used to progress through life. We all want to be successful. The trouble is that most of the people who live in the developed world look for an easy way to accomplishment. A job brings in a paycheck, but few see the need to perform at their peak. As long as that belief remains, no one can hope to work toward their full potential. It's human nature to do the minimum work possible. We have reasons why we can't perform. We blame society, employers, age or lack of education. But these excuses only limit achievement. The majority drift through life without any clear cut goals of what they want to accomplish. Ultimately, they spend decades and end up in the same place they were when they became adults. During those many idle years, few have ever built character and dependability.

What we need to remember is that life exists so we can build character. It's a spiritual concept. We must strive for perfection even though we will never reach the perfection of God. We ll need a reason for getting up every morning. Success comes from being the best we can be. We possess skills that are often unused. Working a job does not always bring out our full talents.

If you want a successful life, a happy home, a loving family with security, you need to live up to a challenge that brings out the best in you.

A strong desire helps you perform at your best

It boils down to desire. Do you have a goal that consumes your time and energy? Passion fuels the imagination. Working towards an objective is what makes life worth living. A job may bring in an income, but if you don't love it, you should look for something you can be passionate about, even if that means finding a better job. A majority of employees do not like their work. Yet they work 40 years on average and retire having accomplished little in life. Studies have proved that only 5% of college-age graduates end up wealthy at age 65. The rest are broke and dependant on welfare or the help of their children or friends. After years of working at jobs, they haven't saved anything to live on comfortably. Few can really enjoy their golden years.

You do not need to accept the fate of the majority as your own. There are steps you can take, no matter what your age, to live a life of top performance.

  • See yourself as the CEO of your own corporation. No one can live your life for you. It's your choice to drift as do the majority or steer your corporation in the direction you want it to go. That requires finding a goal, then organize a plan to reach the goal.

  • Take an inventory of your skills and how they fit into your goal. If you lack expertise, get educated.

  • Possibilities are endless. It requires a little study. Once you have a clear-cut plan, you'll get consumed by the prospect of success. Focus on achievement, rather than finding excuses why you can't take action today.

  • Execute the plan. Patience and persistence are critical ingredients for success. Take action and do something every day to advance toward the objective. If you love your job, then focus your attention on becoming a valuable asset for the company you work for.

  • Don't expect immediate results. We all expect instant results. Advertising has drilled into the mind that you can have anything you want with the flash of a credit card. Anything worth doing requires an investment of time and constant effort.

  • Stay positive. It's easy to get depressed when things don't turn out the way you expect. But if you persist, eventually you will realize your dreams. A negative mindset or associations with negative people often kill the goal before it starts.

  • Be open to change. Change is a constant. Sometimes it's necessary to evaluate goals that no longer prove worthwhile. If your current dream evaporates, set yourself a new goal.

  • Be active in society. It's good for business. Expand your list of friends, especially those who are in a position to help you achieve your objective. Working with others is a partnership. You need to help them too. Be as dedicated to others as you are to your business. The best performer is sympathetic to the cause of others and never lets a good partnership down.
