What does success mean to you?
For many people, success could mean getting married to the person of their dreams, losing weight or getting a promotion at work.
Whatever the case may be, achieving success requires something special.
You may watch videos or read articles about people doing the unthinkable and achieving amazing feats whether it be physical, financial or mental.
You wonder, “How did they do it? How can I get the same results in my life?”
I’ve read countless books about success and what it takes to achieve your goals.
All advice always point to 5 key things.
Once you decide that you want success the first step is to become obsessed.
Success is a direct result of becoming overwhelmingly obsessed with your passion, goal or dream and taking the necessary steps to make things happen.
Your obsession must be so strong that it completely engulfs your mental space and becomes the only thing you think about and want.
Additionally, you must be willing to make sacrifices.
You may have to skip a few meals or lose sleep. You may have to cut off some friends and family. You might have to spend some money.
But it’s not all at lost.
Success is an investment.
The amount of work you put in determines the magnitude of return.
If you follow these 5 tips, I guarantee your passion will be ignited and your desire to succeed will burn brighter than ever.
The 5 Proven Steps to Massive Success
1.Visualize Your Success
What do you want? What do you dream about?
Visualization is the foundation of success.
Close your eyes for a few seconds and imagine.
Imagine how it will feel once you have accomplished your goal.
Drive through the neighborhoods you want to live in. Visit the car dealership and take a look at that new car you’ve always dreamed of having. Imagine yourself being physically fit and in the best shape of your life.
For example, actor and comedian Jim Carrey credits visualization as the first and most important step that he took on his rise to fame.
As a completely broke, high school dropout Jim Carrey determined to make it in Hollywood would visit affluent neighborhoods at night and envisioned himself owning a home within the community.
In 1992, he even went as far as to write a $10,000,000 check to himself dated 3 years in advanced.
In 1995, a few days prior to his post-dated check, Jim Carrey made $10,000,000 for his role in the movie Dumb and Dumber.
Do you see how powerful visualization can be?
2. Convince Yourself that You Can and Will Succeed
If you don’t believe in yourself, you won’t succeed.
Stop worrying about what others say or think about your goals.
To them your goals may be too big, frightening and unimaginable.
Most people are quick to try to convince you what you are not capable of instead of praising your potential and the things you can achieve.
Because they are unable to fathom the idea or concept of your goal for themselves.
If they don’t think they can do it, then in their mind neither can you.
If you don’t believe in your success then no one will and you will ultimately prove the naysayers right.
The only thing that matters is what you think and believe about your success.
3. Have Intense Unwavering Focus
How focused are you on your success?
Well first answer this question:
How many hours do you spend watching t.v.or YouTube videos? How often do you scroll through Facebook or Instagram throughout the day? What task are you wasting large amounts of energy on every day?
Time is our most valuable asset but yet we will waste it on mind numbing activities that are no way related to our goals.
You have to be self-aware.
Every activity you do throughout the day must be done with intent.
When working towards a goal, committing to a schedule or routine is key.
A daily routine or schedule allows you to focus on what’s important and grants you full control of your waking hours.

4. Look to Others Who Have Done What You Are Doing
Success leaves clues.
Think of one person who has achieved massive success doing the same exact thing you’re trying to accomplish.
What did they do to get there? Are you capable of implementing the same steps?
Whoever this person may be choose to model them. Read their bio, learn how they handled obstacles and objections. Figure out what they right.
There is no need to reinvent the wheel. It’s painfully obvious that whatever this person did to become successful worked.
Make no mistake, most people that we idolize as being successful usually has put in a lot of hard work to get there.
Hardwork will give you results, however hardwork with intention will give you success.
