Success Plan-Tools Anyone Can Use and what is your success plan?
Does your success plan include tools to help you reach all of the facets of success? Are your plans and tools totally focused on how great you are at performing your talents or skills? There are many facets to a success plan, which we will not cover here. These success tools can be the groundwork you implement into your plan to give you credibility as a person with qualities of character.
Most importantly these tools are associated with the person who realizes their life success is not totally dependent upon rising to the top of the ladder at all costs. It is more about being a person of quality.
These tools are also not associated with physical or technical talents however, they are more like character tools, values, and beliefs that are essential to a life of success. They could be called ‘life’ skills, tools, or self-leadership.
What We Discuss
These tools or you may call them character traits mentioned are not from a study of a person’s intelligence. They are more like sound judgments from the human side of life. To become someone who is admired more for being a person with standards, than a person who excels because they have a Ph.D. These are just some reminders that will keep anyone in touch with what guides people to a healthy life or one that is more dependent upon just saying the right things at the right time.
People skills and interpersonal skills are one of the most sought after qualities for any company wanting to succees.
When a person finds their passion in life, they normally work to become the best at it. They live it, breathe it, whatever it is, and whatever it takes, they want to do it. However, true success comes with the price of paying attention to what is right or just, what isn’t right, and what is totally wrong.
It is important to be responsible for our actions, reactions, and decisions to help us make a successful landing. To be truly successful we must remind ourselves that our passion cannot betray our values.
It Is Easy to Get Caught Up In the Process
These success tools are often missing as we get caught in our own folly, or when we hit a stump. We then start the mental mechanism of self-talk, “if only.”
If only, I had checked my list of what not to do; my outcome might have been different. Again, no expertise is needed to figure this out.
These are simple, easy to implement, and necessary for a disciplined life that has value. It does not mean there will be no mistakes along the way or challenges, life consists of challenges. It is about being a human who not only thinks about themselves but cares about how other people perceive them.
Since success is different for everyone in many ways, the tools here are important for a universal life pattern. Does everyone feel this way? Probably not. You cannot steal your way to success by ignoring the rules of living a good life. Note that these tools listed are must-haves to build respect, confidence, and no fear of retaliation when you reach the success you desire.
“Successful living is not about having or processing, it is about living a responsible life. We must learn how to control our destination by being mindful of our actions.”
It is about giving help to someone who might be struggling, and someone who has helped you. It is there that you will feel the most success, even before you reach that plateau that makes you feel you have made it.

Breaking Down Some Important Do’s and Do not’s to Follow
- Never under-estimate anyone, including yourself
- It is always important to never let your expectations of others be more than you expect of yourself
- Always have the skill to step back and evaluate
- Look for solutions, rather than getting upset over something gone wrong. Finding solutions, teaching implementation, and being able to give someone else the credit, can be similar to throwing a lifejacket at someone.
- Having the right attitude is more important than always being right
- Being able to lighten up when it seems impossible will define how to proceed
- It is important to be able to laugh at yourself and accept that not anyone is perfect
- Knowing where you will not tread for success is one of the greatest decisions you will ever make
- Keeping your eyes on the process and not the end results makes it easier
- Knowing that quality is more important than being the first to finish, and patience works miracles
- You are not the only person who wants to be successful and you cannot get anywhere by putting yourself before others
- Knowing that normally, no one reaches success in one day, it is a lifetime journey
In the end, it is not about how much you have produced, delivered, or what you have obtained, it is about your performance.
The Success Journey
How do you see your success journey thus far?
Everywhere we read it states that success is a journey and that it is very different for all. That is why there is so much written about success.
It must be narrowed down to the individual, their perspective toward life, and their method of obtaining it.
It is not what we make in money, power, or fame. It entails something far more important, it entails who we really are. If we kick someone else out of the game to get what we want or think we must have, we are not going to enjoy the results.
That little “soul nudge” that says something isn’t quite right is what we should listen to. Giving credit to those who have helped us, not only helps another soul, it gives beauty and satisfaction to our soul.
Quite simply, not a human can get anywhere in life without the help of someone else.
A reaction from something said, or something that was written by someone, something someone shared, something once performed, something we heard, something found useful, or something…
It all boils down to knowing we use what is shared by someone, somewhere.
Peaceful Living Brings Success
Peace and happiness do not come from things, it comes from doing what is right, and being at peace with oneself. If this is not true, why do we see so many individuals making their own pain?
Some have inherited their fame, and their success, making it possibly of less value as it amounted to no work on their part. Others have worked for what they have accomplished but misplaced the value of it.
They seem to have too many “things” because they can’t stay out of trouble or away from what is destructive. They are still seeking something, which can only be satisfied from within, and they do not have a clue how to find it.
Success tools are those things we build for ourselves in our efforts to do things the right way. No one has all the knowledge they need or the right way to do all things. However, we can strive to know how to accomplish our success in a way that will meet our own expectations. One must not forget that you cannot please everyone, it doesn’t matter how hard you try.
When seeking the right success tools then we are seeking the right path to growth and in the end, our efforts will feel like triumphs. Simply, because every step of the way, we have worked to make the right choices.
We will feel the joy of success, win, or lose, because we played by the rules.
