I believe that we are born with a good purpose for our lives and if we get in tune with it, we will experience our individual definitions of success. When we detour from the most beneficial paths we should travel on in life, the road seems to get rougher for us. These experiences will definitely become the opportunities for lessons to be learned, and it is crucial to make sure that we learn the lessons from the detours. It is possible to achieve your success in life by doing the following: 1. Follow Your Heart It is important to do what our hearts are telling us to do if they are good in nature. This feeling can be similar to something that is pulling us in a particular direction. It is an internal compass that leads us in the direction we should go. I have found that even family members, who love me dearly, have advised me about things they felt I should have done, but I chose to follow my heart and every time that I did, it turned out to be the right decision for me. When we follow our hearts, they let us know the right choices to make for our lives. When we make the right choices for ourselves, we are achieving our success. 2. Do What You Love We should also take the time to discover our gifts and talents so that we can do things that we are good at as well as have fun. I believe that we all have gifts and talents that we can do that will bring us joy as well as help others to experience joy. When we do what we love to do, we also allow others to appreciate our talents and have better life experiences. It is so important to do what we love because it is far better than doing the alternative. Our lives can be successful if we do what we love to do. 3. Stay Focused We have to stay focused on following our hearts and doing what we love to do because life often times throws us curve balls that take our attention off of these two basic concepts. We must stay focused on what is important to us and what feels right for our lives. By ensuring that we keep our efforts on fulfilling our good purpose for our lives, we will be successful. 4. Realize Your Dreams As we stay on the road that is right for us, we realize our dreams in life. Our dreams are part of our purpose that should be fulfilled. Now that I have realized this, I try my best to follow my heart, do what I love, stay focused, and I can truly say that I am realizing many of my dreams in life. Achieve your success, you can do it!
