Taking Your Successes in Stride

April 24, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 246

If you do not have it yet, you soon will have large quantities of success, and in order to keep the success coming, you must know how to handle the success as it comes. If you don't handle the success well when it does arrive you will start to lose it. Taking success in stride is easy if you follow four simple steps. If you are going to take success in stride you need to be ready for it, know it is coming, be humble when it arrives and always be grateful.

Be ready for Success

If you really want to be able to take your success in stride and not act like and idiot when the success arrives, you need to start by being ready for it. The times people act like a fool when success arrives are usually the times they were not ready for it. Have a plan in place for how you are going to use your success. Where is the money going, how are you spending it, saving it, investing it, etc? Be ready to be asked by a lot of people for money, help, etc. Take time now to find your true friends and weed out those who are just hanging around to mooch once you are successful, etc. Be ready for when it arrives and you will take it in stride when it does.

Know it is coming

The next step to ensuring you can take your successes in stride is to know they are coming. This is the mental preparation. I just wrote about the physical preparation, but you have to prepare mentally as well. You have to know without a doubt that the success is coming your way. You have to know what it feels like to be successful, to have all you want, etc. When you have taken the time to prepare mentally and emotionally then when the success arrives you will already be living into it and your behavior will not change. Prepare mentally and the transition into success will be easy and flawless.

Stay Humble

The next step for handling success to be sure you stay humble. If you have followed the first two steps this should not be a problem, but it is a very dangerous temptation. When you have worked hard, put in the effort, never let doubt it, you are going to feel you deserve the success, and you do. But the danger is that people will often let this go to their head and start to have an attitude, let their ego swell because of the success. This can be subtle like expecting people to call you because you are the success, or not so subtle by informing people they don't have to right to talk to you, look at you, interact with you, etc that way because you are a success. Stay humble, please, it will help.

Stay Grateful

The final and most important key to taking success in stride is to remember to be grateful. We are often grateful when little things come our way when we have little, but once we have success often we forget to be grateful. We can tend to get this attitude of deserving the success, which is true, we do deserve it, but we only deserve if we are thankful and grateful for it. Never forget to be thankful for all you have, especially when what you have increases dramatically. So stay grateful and you will handle your success with ease and grace.
