Stepping Toward Success

Success. Is it a state of mind, or is it how your peers perceive you? Dressing for success can be a clever way of boosting your confidence to help you feel your best, but is it enough? Can your wardrobe choices actually influence your achievements in life? Maybe, maybe not, but there are plenty of other ways you can create the life you want to live:

Education, Information, and Knowledge
The more you know about your area of expertise, the more confident you can feel about your job. You might already have completed a college degree, but why stop there? Committing to lifelong learning means you’ll always have the latest knowledge at your fingertips. Seeking out more information means you will gain more knowledge, which eventually adds to your long list of qualifications.

Information has never been so easy to come by. Of course, some online sources aren’t entirely reliable! Still, it’s worth keeping in the loop of current thinking by staying connected. Use forums, and check out blog sites that talk about the things that interest you most. At work, browse through the trade and industry journals and newsletters that come into the office. Boost your knowledge whenever you can so you can become the subject matter expert in your office.

Feeling As Good As You Look
No matter how successful our mirror image looks, we can still feel nervous, shy, and uninformed inside. Over time, this might lead to anxiety, stress or depression. It’s important to give your confidence a boost whenever you can to avoid these issues. If you're already in this space, don’t ignore it. Speak to your doctor or a counselor, and find a trusted friend to listen.

In the meantime, you can find plenty of inspiring books and articles to help on a wide range of confidence issues. Self-help books can be very helpful if you’re looking for a way to overcome emotional challenges you might be dealing with. You can find a few detailed at websites like, or you can pop into your local library for more ideas. There is such a wealth of choice out there that you’re bound to find something you can relate to.

Lists And Lists Of Lists Lead To Success
Do you have any bucket lists or wish lists for your future? Perhaps you have some lifestyle aspirations like a big house or a sports car? Write your vision down! Written lists are really good for helping you to stay motivated and focused on achieving the success you want. You might keep one on your phone or print one out for your office wall. View it and review it regularly so you can keep track and add to or refine it as needed.
If you don’t yet have a list, think of all the things you want to achieve over the next twelve months. You might be pushing for a promotion at work. Maybe you want to learn something new? Perhaps you’re saving up for some gorgeous shoes? Now start thinking longer term. What do you want to happen within the next three years? Do you want to move to a bigger city? Maybe you hope to be in a permanent relationship and buying your first home? Think it though, picture it, write it down, and start working toward achieving it.

Speak Positively

If you’re not already feeling as successful as you look, now might be the time to try some self-affirmations. Don't allow any negative words to come out of your mouth. Look how far you’ve already come in your career. Even the first rung of the ladder is a step in the right direction. You’ve achieved success. Don’t ever put yourself down or belittle your achievements. You are admired, and you should be proud of yourself.

Now it's time to write down your goals, dress the part, gain the knowledge, and begin moving toward creating the successful life you desire.
