The secret of success in life is to be ready for an opportunity when it comes

ith this post I’d like to shed some light on the workshop I took part in. Because for me it was intended to develop the new abilities in managing my life and controlling my time. The workshop was conducted at our Ocean Znanja office and was called “The main keys of success”.

I realized what is really necessary in this issue. Firstly, success loves preparation. If the perfect opportunity presented itself today, would you be ready? It’s better to be ready and not have an opportunity, then to have an opportunity and not be ready. To succeed, you must be ready when opportunity comes. So spend your time on preparation for success.

Secondly, work. Simply a matter of luck? Okay, but those who have succeeded know that success is directly and proportionally linked to work. Even an amazing strategy can’t guarantee success. Because the most practical, beautiful, workable philosophy in the world won’t work – if you won’t.

Thirdly, time. You have to put your life in the time-frames. I also write a plan for doing my weekly things within these stages:

  • Elizabeta, decide exactly what you want and where you want to go.
  • Set a deadline and make a plan to get there. (Remember, a goal is just a dream with a deadline.)
  • Take action on your plan; do something every day to move toward your goal.
  • Resolve in advance that you will persist until you succeed, that you will never, ever give up.

And, always remember when you believe in yourself and your potential, people pick up that signal, and join your journey. And it does not matter in what field you are developing. You need people to believe, and to become.

The workshop was lead by Alexandra Ivanac, – life/business coach, theta healing practitioner, high mediator, mentor, art teacher. It was too much helpful to me and provided me with useful recommendations.
