‘If you want to stand out from the crowd, give people a reason not to forget you’
– Richard Branson –
ACHIEVERS HAVE ALWAYS done things in their own ways. If we look closely at how they performed we will be surprised by how different they were from the rest of the world. We are all different from the others, in our own ways. But to be an achiever and be recognized by the world, we have to follow some habits so that we can be categorized ‘special’.
Here are some simple steps that you can follow so that you can become from ‘just a someone’ to a ‘legendary’.
1. BE UNIQUE
‘The special ones’ have always been different from the person that surrounded them. Being unique is a gift and it must be treasured. Do the things in your own way, in your own style. Add your own flavor into your life and just enjoy doing what you love. We must be unique in order to be recognized as someone ‘who made a difference’. So just be creative and continue to stay like that always.
2. THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX
Yes, this is very crucial. You must learn to think differently. To think separately. To think in a way like no other person has thought. It’s hard, but it’s also easy at the same time. Great people have always thought things in a way no other people have thought.
You can do this too. Just spend some time own your own everyday at a place where you can be clam, composed. Get some fresh air and look for inspirations. You will be flooded with a lot of things that can make a drastic difference into your lives. Who knows, it might be the life-changer decision that you took. Its never to late to start thinking.
3. DON’T LISTEN TOO MUCH
There are lots of sources now that are now available with just a click. You can see countless videos, advises and lectures on how to get a job done. My advise – don’t follow it. Yes, you can watch or even listen one or two for inspiration. But don’t go on listening to it continuously. It will only make you more confused. More perplexed. Chances are you can’t do the thing that you aspired to do.
Instead do it in your way. Learn from your mistakes and keep pushing yourself. I am sure that you will get it done in no time. All that you actually need is ‘involvement’.
4. LEARN TO HANDLE OBJECTIONS
When you do something differently there will be a lot of opposition. That’s natural. Pioneers have always faced criticism in a way beyond our knowledge. But look at them. They always faced opposition with confidence, with courage. And look what happened. They were able to revolutionize the world. That’s how achievers do.
Learn to face objections without any fear. If you want to be great you got to learn that art. Trust me.
5. BELIEVE IN YOURSELF
I give this advise to a lot of my friends who come to me for seeking help when they face trouble. You have to ‘believe’ in order to ‘achieve’. A firm belief that ‘I can do this’ is 100x more powerful than ‘I think I can’. So attitude is everything. If your belief is stronger, then you have already stood out from a lot of people than you can actually imagine.
Train your mind to think positively. Trust yourself. Nothing is impossible in this world. You can achieve if you have the will.
6. RECOGNISE YOUR TIME OF WORK
This is also an important aspect, which can help you stand out. The basic idea is to find out the time that you are more comfortable with. For some it might be nights. For some it might be the morning. For some it might be evenings. Whatever it is, find the time that you are most comfortable with. Spend some time in thinking and working out your craft during these times. You will be amazed with the results and surprised by how much you can improve.
7. SEIZE EVERY OPPORTUNITY
Opportunities help you grow to greater heights. So it is important to learn and take them at the right moment. Achievers have always taken the opportunities that had come along their way.
Don’t be shy to take such moments that come into your lives. Consider them as a gift. And accept that gift with both your hands. Welcome it into your life. The more opportunities you seize the more likely you are to achieve success and more likely you are to stand out. If opportunities don’t knock, then just build a door and wait for it. You got to seize it then. The basic idea is to be involved and be aware of the situations and make the most out of it.
8. TRUST YOUR INSTINCTS
Instincts are the key to your destiny. They will always lead you to greatness. Trust it with all your heart. When you are confused, listen to it. Chances are that it will take you to the right path. Whatever happens, make sure that you reach the best decisions. And decisions are always related with instincts. So the best people take decisions who believe in their instincts and follow it no matter what.
9. INCREASE WORK PRODUCTIVITY
In order to excel in something and stand out from the crowd you have to learn about your craft. And the best way of doing that is by practicing. Working for your craft naturally improves your skills and as the day passes you become better at what you do. Almost all the people who revolutionized the world have spent hours and hours working on their skills just to make it better. And it has always made a big difference in their lives.
So whatever your craft is, just make sure that you work for it on a regular basis. Make sure that you stay informed about the craft. This will definitely take you to greater heights than you can imagine.
10. HAVE A BURNING DESIRE TO EXCEL
No matter what happens to you, promise me that you will keep this trait inside you always. No matter what happens. Because this is the most important quality that you need to take with you in order to achieve excellence. In order to be recognized. In order to stand out from a lot of people.
Keep your passion burning always and never lose hope. Think everything positively and strive to reach higher everyday no matter how difficult it is. Never give up on your dreams. Trust me, you can get to greater heights if you have the desire to get there.
