how to become successful


There is a common conception that if you are productive than you will get more done and there is one more theory which says that by staying busy you are going to be more successful quality plays a major role in defining success and sometime quantity is also a major factor.

It is you who will have to find out whether only quantity or quality works better or both of them in some proportion as it is also quite difficult and takes some time to find the right formulae of perfect combination.

Let us check out some tips which will help you to work in a smart way on day to day basis.
When you start your day make a list of things which you want to do in that day and then mark the important items first. It is a simple exercise but we all have made mistakes of leaving the important tasks until the end. So basically it is a task of completing the important task first so that you do not get stressed at the end of the day and postpones them for the next day.

Take full night quality sleep

Your body needs to take full rest and for that you should sleep at-least for 7 – 8 hours and it will help you to focus and think more creatively as by doing so your cognitive abilities will be enhanced. Some people stay awake during night and get work done which reduces sleep time but next day when you will wake up you may not feel energetic hence it will affect the productivity and creativity.

If possible try to wake up early as it will really help you to become successful so start your day early. The reason behind this is that you will get more hours in the day at your disposal and also the more opportunity there is to dedicate to completing your business. Another reason is that you will feel more energetic and will form a healthy sleeping habit.

Give due attention to the tasks with full focus as distractions will make it harder to focus on the task in hand. So multitasking is not a good option if you want to do your job in a best way. Try to meditation to increase your concentration and shut out all distractions and be more productive on the whole.

Enjoy what you do and do not always run after perfection. Do not always run after those details which require minimal planning. So save your time for the important details and other important tasks instead of waiting energy. Try to do the task in the best way at the first time only and save you energy and time on reviewing the work done again and again. It will also create some doubts in your mind as to whether the tasks you have completed is done to a satisfactory level. Just finish up, and move to another task.

Assign time limits to the tasks which you want to accomplish in a day or week. Try to allocate a set amount of time to work out which items are taking longer than others so that at later stage you do not get stressed out and feel pressure to complete them at last moment or when there is little time left.

Try to take regular breaks

Yes if you will take breaks at regular intervals then you will refresh and your energy levels will again shoot up which will result in better concentration. Anyways it is not even expected that you go full steam ahead every minute. So for your own mental and physical health being you should take breaks.


Swami Vivekananda was a person who lighted many lives through his teachings and experience and everybody knows that he was a great scholar and noble man.

One day a person who was very sad came to meet Swami Vivekananda and when he met him he touched Swami Vivekananda’s feet and started crying then, he told his story to him that he was disheartened because he was well educated and worked very hard still he was not successful in his life so he asked why he was so unlucky and could not achieve success even after working so hard?

Swami Vivekananda understood his problem but did not say anything regarding his problem instead he asked to take his dog for a walk and promised him to answer his query after he completes this simple task.

This person was astonished by this behavior of Swamiji and took dog outside for a walk without saying anything. After sometime when he came back with dog his face was smiling but the dog looked bit tired.

Swamiji asked from him as to why the dog was so tired and he looked fresh as both of them covered the same distance while walking. The man told Swamiji that when he was going straight on his way but the dog was running here and there after other street dogs and covered ore distance as compared to him and due to this the dog got tired because he used wasted his energy after other dogs.

After listening to him Swamiji told him that this is the answer for all your queries because your goal is near to you and not far away but you start running after other people instead focusing on your goal and slowly you get away from your goal without even realizing it.

Same thing applies to us because most of the people focus on mistakes of other people and jealous of their success but do not try to enhance own knowledge. So we should always focus on our path and makes ourselves a better person so that we can make our lives much better and enjoy the success.
