Success has taken many shapes over the last several centuries. Even in today’s world, each industry and individual hold a different view of what success actually looks like. Success might look like percentage points in corporate growth from year to year. To others, it might look like ecommerce conversions after launching a new web app this year. Here at Social Media Energy, we measure success through website clicks, SEO scores, and overall increased social media reach. No matter how you measure success, it’s crucial to keep sight of the end goal and strive toward it. Thanks to our friends over at Forbes, we know that with just a few simple concepts in place, you and your organization can succeed at anything.
Take a hard look at where you WANT to go in your life. With no greater outlook on what you wish for, it’s easy to get sucked into the day-to-day cycles of normal life. Keep your vision specific, clear, and at the forefront of every decision you make as you work towards your view of success.
In order to keep your vision in your sights and continue your journey to it, you need to stay committed. Without 100% drive to success, you are sure to fall short of what you are striving towards. Persist, don’t give up, stay away from fear of rejection, and stay 100% committed to what you see as success.
Ideally, everyone would be completely and genuinely themselves every second of every day. We all know, however, how difficult it can be to stay authentic in the face of obstacles that come across our paths. Discover who you authentically are and stick with that; stay completely, uniquely YOU.
Transparency is one of our biggest values here at Social Media Energy, and that value is shared around the professional world in general. Even when you may slip up a bit when it comes to integrity, simply recommit to your goals and re-start with a renewed energy!
Surround yourself with the strongest of competitors; it will bring out the strengths in yourself. Healthy competition drives growth, and therefore spurs you toward the success you are seeking. We are all in this as fellow professionals, and by pushing each other to be better we can all raise the bar collectively.
