But here’s the thing: success can look wildly different for everyone. For some, it might be launching a thriving business, for others, it’s mastering a new skill or simply feeling fulfilled in their everyday lives.  

The good news? No matter what your definition of success is, there are concrete steps you can take to reach it.

In this guide, I’m going to share some of the key strategies that I’ve found helpful in my journey towards success

We’ll delve into figuring out what success means to you, setting achievable goals, building unshakeable habits, and bouncing back from setbacks (because trust me, there will be setbacks!).

So, grab your favourite drink, settle in, and let’s get started on this road to achieving your version of success!

How Do I Strive For Success?

success is a word that gets thrown around a lot. It can feel vague and unapproachable, like a glittering prize you can only admire from afar

But what if I told you that success isn’t some mystical destination, but a journey you can actively chart?

The truth is, that achieving success requires intentionality. It’s about defining what success means to you and then taking concrete steps to get there. Here’s how you can swap daydreams for a real shot at reaching your goals:

1. Define Your Success.

Success isn’t a one-size-fits-all kind of deal. A corner office might thrill one person, while another craves the freedom of running their own business.  

A recent study by Harvard Business Review found that employees who report a strong sense of purpose in their work are significantly more productive and satisfied.

So, what gets you fired up? Is it helping othersAchieving financial security?  

Maybe it’s about creative expression or constant learning.  Spend some time reflecting on what truly matters to you.  This will be your guiding light as you navigate your path.

2. Set SMART Goals.

Once you know your destination, it’s time to map your course. Vague goals like “be successful” won’t get you very far. Instead, set SMART goals: Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time-bound.

For example, instead of saying “I want to be a writer,” a SMART goal could be “I will write and submit 3 short stories to literary magazines by the end of the year.” This gives you a clear direction and a way to track your progress.

3. Embrace the Hustle.

Success doesn’t magically appear on your doorstep.  It takes consistent effort and a willingness to learn from your experiences.  Don’t be afraid to step outside your comfort zone and take calculated risks.

Every setback is a chance to learn and improve.  According to a Forbes article, 70% of successful people credit their failures for teaching them valuable lessons. Analyze your mistakes, adjust your approach, and keep moving forward.

4. Fuel Your Journey.

The road to success is rarely smooth. There will be times when you doubt yourself, face roadblocks, and feel like giving up. Here’s where resilience and grit come in.

Resilience is your ability to bounce back from challenges. Grit is your passion and perseverance in the face of obstacles.   

Develop healthy coping mechanisms, surround yourself with supportive people, and celebrate your small wins. These will be your anchors during stormy weather.

5. Find Your Tribe.

No one achieves success in a vacuum. Surround yourself with positive, inspiring people who believe in you and your dreams. These could be mentors, friends, colleagues, or even online communities.

Strong relationships provide encouragement, accountability, and valuable insights. They’ll celebrate your victories and pick you up when you fall.


Remember, success is a journey, not a destination. It’s about continuous growth, learning, and striving to be the best version of yourself. So, take charge, embrace the adventure, and chase that gold!
