Everybody wants to be successful. However, if it was that easy then everybody would be successful. Today’s post will focus on the key aspects of being successful and how to become successful at everything.

What Is Success?

Firstly, in order to be successful, we must know what success actually means. To put it simply, success is the accomplishment of an aim or purpose. For example “the president had some success in restoring confidence”. Success can mean many things to many people. Many people confuse success with money or wealth. This is a common successmisunderstanding. Success can be anything you want it to be. Whether it be getting the kids in the car to go to school by a certain time, reaching a target at work, making the most out of every day, graduating and many more. Of course, success can bring money and wealth and 9/10, from a business point of view, it will bring money to the table.

How To Become Successful At Everything – Factor #1 – Research

To Become successful you must take many factors into consideration. Throughout this post I will break down each factor so that you can put them into practice and start your journey to success. The first factor is research. If you are looking to become successful in business or anything that you are not 100% familiar with, then research is key. It is a fact that research puts you ahead of the competition. In this day and age many people want everything done for them or they want to become successful quickly. Therefore, they will not commit to researching their goal. The best forms of research are from books, online or speaking to people who already have experience in your interest.

By researching your craft you can put yourself miles ahead o any competition believe me.

Factor #2 – Planning

Another very important factor is planning. If you do not plan ahead then you will never be successful. Life has a tendency to throw a few curve balls along the way when you are on the success journey. By planning ahead and always having a plan B you reduce the risk of ruining your path to success. Planning is a lot simpler than you think. For example, when tending to my online business, I plan my content for the week. I simply write down what date I will write and post to my blog and I also plan when to record my YouTube videos and also when and hat to post on my Instagram page.

planningPlanning can take up time. However, once you have a structure/template in place for your planning it will then free up so much more time to create new ideas for your success. Also, planning ahead can give you that bit more freedom to spend with loved ones and friends. This is also very important when it comes to being successful. Being able to divert away from the grind (only ever so slightly) will help relax the mind. I also find after a few beers with friends I tend to think of new ideas to add to my path to success.

However, remember success comes with sacrifice and hard work. If you are out partying every night you will never be successful.

Factor #3 – Training & Educating Yourself

The third factor needed to answer the question how to become successful at everything is training and education. This falls into the research category slightly. Again, to get ahead of the game I recommend (if possible) to find some kind of training or platform that will help educate you whilst on your way to success. This can be something as simple as YouTube or an app in your particular niche or interest. I started my online business thanks to an online marketing platform that helps you start and grow an online business in marketing. The training helped me create a website in under 2 minutes and I literally would have had no idea on how to do that on my own. Something as simple as this helped put me way ahead of the competition.

Factor #4 – Investing In Yourself

As soon as people hear the word investment, they immediately think ‘money’. Although investing money in to your passion can help considerably, it’s not always money that needs to be invested. The main things that I suggest you invest when embarking on your journey to success is:

  1. Time
  2. Education
  3. Money

These are very important. Time is needed to learn and grow your passion therefore increasing your chances of becoming successful. I have 3 children and I still manage to stick to my plan and allocate some time every day to grow my online business. I educate my self by following the training and support of the platform I mentioned above. This platform is called Wealthy Affiliate. Simply click below for my honest review on their services and how it can help you become successful today.




The Money I have invested into my business, is small amounts. I think i apd $12 for my website domain and I now pay $49 for my premium membership at Wealthy Affiliate. Thats pretty much all I have spent but it has grown my business and has enabled me to become more successful.

Factor #5 – Patience

Patience is extremely important when it comes to being successful. Unfortuantely success doesnt happen over night, it takes all of the above and also riding some good and bad times. I would be a liar if I said I had not come up against some issues along the way when starting my business. I would also be a liar if I said I hadn’t thought about quitting becuase believe me I have. However, the drive of being my own boss and earnign a living on my terms spurs me on. What also spurs me on are the success stories at Wealthy Affiliate and also the support from the platform which is available 24/7.

You cannot give up everytime you have a bad day. We all have bad days in life or in the 9-5. I am a firm beliver in the sentence “if it isn’t going to matter in 5 years then dont spend more than 5 minutes worrying about it”.

Take a look at this great video below from Denzel Washington about patience and persistence.

    You are absolutely right! If you want to be successful, you need to educate yourself. Personal development is a paramount when we look at very highly successful people and what they have in common. They are pateint and self centered and not running around like headless chicken, lol, like most of us do they day. Successful people are very careful of choosing manageable tasks and they stick to it. They enjoy life. (You have started me off now ;-))

    Many thanks for this amazing share.

    Ease is a greater threat to progress than hardship. So true!

  5. Russell,

    I agree with you that in order to be successful, we have to learn as much as we can about the subjects we want to be successful in.

    If you attempt to have success about something you know nothing about, other’s won’t take you seriously, especially if they find that you’re babbling about something you know nothing about.

    I have to admit, I research everything, even if it’s something I overhear and I want to learn more. People often call me the research queen when it comes to anything that I simply want to know more about.

    Thanks for sharing this information!

    Great post. I believe patience is one of the most important rules in order to become successful. A lot of people miss their blessing because they could not wait and persist their ambitions. What makes it worse is seeing other successful people and not knowing how hard they had to work.

    Without patience, you fall into jeopardizing your whole mission.

      Hi Brian, thank you for your comment. I completely agree. I see many people in the affiliate marketing niche, like me, who mention they made their first £3000 month with their online business but it took them 2 years to get there. Lets be honest, if we knew after 2 years of hard work we would have £3000+ a month coming in whilst working from home we would all stay patient.

    Great post. It’s very important to not lose sight of where you want to be.
    Look at the bigger picture and think at just how far you’ve come and how much further you want to go.

    Having a structure is key and also don’t let anyone put you down.
    I have come across this also. This just makes me want to succeed even more.
