How to Find Your Power to Succeed and Become Successful

Mar 27, 2018

Feel like others are bagging all the job successes while you’re scraping the bottom of the graduate career barrel? Here’s something to spur you on to succeed at finding that top job and building your dream career.

There are times when your current situation or future may seem hopeless and you begin to wonder if the entire world is against you. During such periods, you may see lots of your peers and several others who are doing better and then you begin to doubt if you will ever succeed.

Cheer up!

“The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any.” – Alice Walker.

You have whatever it takes to succeed in what you’re aiming for. Just because you haven’t achieved your goal yet, doesn’t mean you can’t or you never will.

Whether you’re a graduate who is job hunting or you already have a career and you’re wondering if you’ll ever make it to the top, don’t give up your power to succeed by assuming you don’t have any!

 “The future belongs to those who see possibilities before they become obvious.” – John Scully.

See possibilities in everything you do as you experience the ups and downs of job hunting or building a successful career. How can you build a tough skin and surmount challenges if you’ve never experienced any ups and downs? Even gold has to be refined with fire to shine brighter!

“Challenges are what make life interesting, overcoming them is what makes life meaningful.” – Joshua J. Marine.

So don’t ever lose hope of finding that dream job or building a successful career. Most importantly, don’t ever lose hope of overcoming your challenges.  Go after your dreams!

“If you can dream it, you can do it.” – Walt Disney.

Every celebrated effort you see around today started as a dream. In almost every case, it took several efforts for these dreams to become the reality you see. Look around you. The clothes you wear, shoes, cars, airplanes, ships, houses, medicine etc. They all started as someone’s dream. Someone who never gave up. Someone who failed several times and yet refused to give up.

So why should you give up?

Why should you settle for less when you have all it takes to succeed?

“Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.” – Thomas A. Edison.

Keep trying. Never stop believing in yourself and in your dreams.  Failure, setbacks and rejections are mere phases and stepping stones to make you stronger. Don’t let them replace your dreams or goals.

“Success is how high you bounce when you hit bottom.” – General George Patton.

So pick yourself up. Giving up is not the way out. Depression is not the way out. Feeling sorry for yourself is not the way out. There is only one way out; go after your dreams and goals and never stop until you achieve them. Don’t procrastinate. The future starts now!

“The best way to predict the future is to create it.” – Abraham Lincoln.

Success is not just something that happens to other people. It can happen to you too. Successful people aren’t just lucky but they take the right action and they have a positive attitude.

And if for any reason you think it’s all over for you, don’t forget;

“It is never too late to be what you might have been.”George Eliot.

See you at the top!
