How successful you are, depends on your definition of success. Do you want to land your dream job? Open a business? Or just have a healthy happy life? You need to go for what you want unapologetically and enjoy every moment. We all look at the habits and routines of successful women and try to incorporate some of that balance and determination into our own lives, but it’s not always that easy.
Want to start now on your journey to success? Here’s what you should do.
1. Find a mentor
A mentor will make a huge difference to your career, no matter if you’re just starting out or in a high-level position. People with a mentor are five times more often than those who aren’t. You just need to look around you, who can mentor you that you admire and look up to? Colleagues? Friends? Family members? Or do you need to reach out to a successful woman you admire and see if she has any advice for you?
2. Develop a hobby
You need to know what you enjoy doing outside of work, to allow your brain and body to recharge and rest. A hobby can also help you develop skills you need to be successful, use a daily planner like the Getting Stuff Done planner to plan out your life, make time for yourself, and get ahead.
3. Learn one new thing a day
Learning one new thing a day will help you boost your brainpower, stay up-to-date with current affairs, and keep you on track. Whether you learn a random fact or are trying to learn one new word in a language, it’ll pay off massively.
4. Surround yourself with the right people
Your journey to success depends on the people around you. You need to create a support team that cheers you on, that knows you’ve got this and never doubts you. Of course, there will be some negativity in your life but surrounding yourself with equally ambitious people and go-getters will help keep you motivated when things get tough. A mentor will also help you with that, so definitely look into finding an inspiring Career Girl to give you advice and motivate you.
5. Take care of yourself
As your success grows, you begin to realize you need to look after yourself more than you might have done before. You are your biggest asset, and success can bring busyness, craziness, and so much happiness into your life. It can also bring stress, burnouts, and depression if you don’t look after yourself and try to do too much. Relax, workout, eat healthily, treat your body like a temple as they say. It’ll make working hard so much easier!
