Are you in control of your destiny?

As you are reading these words, you may be thinking about and looking for a way to improve your sense of fulfillment, success, and true happiness in your life.

It seems that some people nearly always attain success in relationships, business, and personal fulfillment, while others in similar circumstances may do well, but never seem to reach higher levels.

We often say they are “lucky” but I suggest that luck has nothing to do with it.

What does have everything to do with it are the following six factors?

They are the areas that every one of us needs to improve in order to attain personal fulfillment, success, and happiness. Which of these would you wish to improve?

1. Self-image.
Your beliefs about your self affect how you feel and how you appear to others. Your self-confidence and self-worth are the results of your self-image.

2. Self Control.
The true fact is that either you control your life or you are controlled by it.

3. Creativity.
In its broadest sense, it is the artist and the scientist within you, who solves your problems and brings new ideas.

4. Cooperation.
No man is an island, and the successful person will be an expert at communication skills, persuading and encouraging others to make his own and their shared goals come true.

5. Planning.
It is said, that “If you don’t know where you are going, you’ll end up somewhere else”. If someone doesn’t have clear and focused goals, they cannot complain if the “somewhere else” is not to their liking.

6. Concentration.
Willingness to get going, concentrated effort, persistence, and resilience in the face of obstacles – all are crucial to success in achieving life goals.
