Success is most desired ambition of human beings. Every one of us wants to be successful. But only few endeavor towards that purpose consciously whereas others rely on luck and chance to achieve their goals.
The best example in this case is someone who wants to get rich but only has one alternative: playing Lotto. Of course, there are chances of becoming rich over night, but how likely is it that this will actually happen?
Creating a realistic plan in order to achieve desired results is vital in any case, no matter how high or low your ambitions are set and how high or low your hopes are.
The safest way to do this is by taking successive steps and gradually increasing your chances of reaching your ideal. The safest and surest.
Try to think of a metaphor and compare your desires with a professional swimming competition.
The first thing you need to do, in order to have chances of winning race, is to make sure you are not afraid of water. Before you even consider entering race you have to eliminate your fears. They are ones holding you back. But be careful! Some of your fears might save you from getting hurt or failing.
Once you are convinced that your goal is worth fighting for, you have to start hardest stage in you plan: preparation.
To start with you must learn how to swim if you already do not know. You cannot expect to win a professional swimming race when you donít even know how to swim. Start with basics and never skip any steps out of desire of reaching your goal faster. The experience and knowledge you are skipping will probably come back and hurt you later on.
