Get Started: First step to Success.

Getting StartedWe all want success badly. But still only few of us achieve it. It is rightly said that you need to take care that you start good. And that is really important.

Suppose you want to open a Coffee shop and want it be full every time you check shop’s status. For that you need space for accommodation, you need furniture, shop articles, glassware, servants, advertising and many more. But note here that you need to start first. For a successful business and a successful life, both professional and personal, you need to make a plan and work that out.

It’s said that making a plan is that first step towards success. Yes! you need to make plan for your successful business or life. Make a plan how you tend to achieve your dreams.

You have a dream, world has a space for it.

Getting started is not the only solution. Many of us start good with a high level of adrenaline in our veins, but as time passes and we start facing hurdles and fall backs we generally quit. That’s what happens with most, or at least, 90% of us. And rest 10% are always ready to face any risk and they go on and on and finally they win!

So what is the reason that we do stop as we face temporary failure?

There are many reasons:

  1. I lost my interest. I found that stuff as “Dry” now.
  2. I can’t get it. It’s for champions, I’m not one of them.
  3. I don’t feel motivated.
  4. I can’t understand myself.
  5. I’m unable to maintain that hasty schedule.
  6. It’s not making me feel good.
  7. I can’t work that much hard.
  8. Let’s get practical, these ideas don’t work in the real world!
  9. I’m so confused what I want from life..
  10. I’m not serious about my career..

I can extend the list to at least 148. Because I wrote 148 reasons of my failure, on some A4 Size paper sheets – My Excuses.

You could do the same. Write all the excuses that you have made in your life till now number-wise on a paper. Now, whenever you feel you can’t do it, open that list and say, “It’s my excuse number ____. But not this time. I’m not gonna use excuses anymore!”

How to do it in simple steps?

1. Make a plan for yourself, about your dream and how do you intend to achieve all that. Write it. It is very important that you make realistic plan. i.e. a plan that you can follow. Do not make a plan that much hard, that you find it difficult to follow at that time.

2. You need to choose: Excuses or Results

Choice is always ours. I would like to quote a line from a Movie: “Our Greatness or Strength is not determined by our talents, but is determined by our decisions“. Make a decision now!!! And Stick to it.

Excuses” or “Results

After you have chosen, do not start right now. Yes, not now, because you must have tried this earlier and got failed. You need to get started but in the right way.

Then what is the right way?

To answer this, let me tell you my story in brief. I didn’t liked to study. It was about two months I hadn’t studied any thing at all. I had an exam after 3 months. Now only about a month was left. And I felt scared but what I realized was: I didn’t felt from inside to study at all.

That day I saw the following video from YouTube:

{if you need to download this video, use “Ant Video Downloader” from for your particular Internet Browser like Mozilla Firefox or IE}

If you have watched the video, you can understand that:

If you have it on your mind, you can do it.

3. And all you need to do is “JUST DO NOT QUIT“.

After I saw the video, I got somewhat motivated and started to study “Human Biology” particularly Human Digestion. After that I felt, “Hey! that wasn’t bad at all. I could do it everyday.”

The key was “I loved to study only Human Biology” and that’s what I started with.

After that, I read only Human Biology for about 4 days and completed almost whole Human Biology (Time depends upon your Syllabus level and grasp on subject). After that I started with Physics and Chemistry too.

At fresh start-ups (after long breaks), always start from your favorites.

And Guess what! I secured 87.82% in Objective test!!! I know its not that good enough, but is a good score to get started.

So, the key is:

It is important that you start good.


4. After you have that good start-up push you will in sometime feel good about yourself. Maintain it. It is very crucial that you maintain it anyhow. You need to maintain it. For your dreams, for your career. If you need watch the above video again and again.

Work out your plans and make a history.

Always remember & say one thing to yourself:

Some people teach history and some people learn history but I’m gonna create the history.

Secret of Success – Born With Everyone!

I searched many times on the Internet and in many Blogs and other things like Books also. The common words used by me during my this research were: “Secret of Success, Successful Life, etc..”. It seemed to be a never ending result and research. But in there, I knew that one day I’ll have that secret in myself. And I will call myself as “Successful“.

It seems like I’m talking like a grown old-man, but seriously we all know the secret. Just for a moment realize this: You came across this content because you searched for the approximately same words that I used to search for. Now if you can realize it, you can understand it. But if you don’t realize that you are actually searching for a artificial plan to your successful life, then please understand it anyhow.

That’s something direct. I like things to be direct. So, I’ll do the same here.

So, lets me tell you how you already know the secret, which is so worthy. In order to do this, please select “What you want to do?” or “In what field you want to be successful?”. After you know this, you must me chasing to get it. You must have faced Failure many times in this. Right?

Please answer ALOUD!!! while you read.

Let me suppose that you want to be a Doctor (Let’s assume that). Now, in order to do that you need to be firstly a physician, then only you will be able to specialization in any field and become a specialist doctor. Now, in order to be a General Physician you need to get in a Medical School/College. For that  you need to pass the Entrance Exam by the particular Institute.

So, here your success will be to “Being a General Physician” firstly. Because a General Physician is a doctor. If you suggest here that “Being a Specialist” will be success, that’s Extremely good. But the thing is you are currently aiming too high. Yes, ask the persons who have cracked the Entrance Exams they would or their interviews will tell you that they aimed only to crack Entrance Exam and somehow get in Medical School/College and pass out with good result as a doctor. Many of the Toppers are not even sure that what they may choose for specialty in their later stage of Life.

That’s the First Lesson:

Always Do One thing at a time. Always.

If you are playing you must concentrate on playing only. If you are studying you must concentrate on studying. Some of you may find, that it was already known to you. But if it was then you must have not followed it. Practice it! Daily!!! If you don’t know how or forget to do this, write it on your palm with Permanent Marker so that whenever you see this, you do exactly the same.

If you are not able to concentrate, then practice Meditation. Yes! it firstly for some times feels like Hell and “What the eef!!”, but once you do it for a week, you will enjoy doing this.

Second Lesson:

In order to gain something, you must lose something

This is Nature’s Fundamental Law. If you want to buy snacks, you need to pay to shopkeeper by Money. So, you gain snacks, but you lose money.

Fill it, Write it and Paste it up, somewhere you see it everyday:

Fill the blanks yourself, write it and paste it now only!

I wanna be a  ________ . And from now I’ll do in favor of what I wanna be. This is my God Damn Life! No ________ (Exam/Person/etc..) is gonna decide that I’m not gonna be a ________. This is my Life and I’ll make it Perfect for myself and for my family. Screw you ________ (exam/person/etc..) I’ll do it at any cost. Stop me if you can!!

If convenient to you, please specify the name of Exam, Person, etc..

Third and Last but a very important Lesson:

Stop at nothing. Remember: Champions Never Give Up!

If you face any dullness or feel low at any time, stop studying or doing what was needed to be done. Take a break and relax. Watch some Comedy. Get your Interest back!

Remember here that you need a strong will power to get set that interest back! If you somehow fail, read the whole article again and burst out with flying colors!
