Living life to the fullest possible potential often takes on many definitions depending on each individual’s own particular situation. Success is often measured by large bank accounts highlighted by corporate or social status in any given community. Within all walks of life success is measured in many different ways with meanings that are often contradicting from the poor to the very rich. The keys to success are not written in stone for others to follow but are learned through life experiences, including many trials and tribulations which often reflect the overall attitude of a given individual.

A “never give up” attitude is perhaps the most important foundation for becoming a success. Negativity often breeds contempt, spreading like an infectious disease to those that are in direct contact, from co-workers and even family members. Negative individuals are often selfish individuals lacking compassion for their neighbors and fellow man. This self-righteous attitude is often inbred, perhaps going back as far as childhood, from homes with dysfunctional families and inadequate parenting at a young age. It is up to the individual to seek out other positive avenues, surrounded by positive people who will know how to proceed in making a change in your life.

Living on your own terms, regardless of present financial situation, is the key factor in making a change in your life. What you perceive to be important in your life may seem trivial or unimportant to others. Simple daily tasks that are often repeated many times during the day may seem mundane however are part of your everyday existence, a part of your life that is uniquely you, unlike any other individual anywhere. Be grateful for what you have and the opportunity to reach for higher goals. Being grateful will help you to maintain focus on present or future goals which will be reached with greater success in less time than previously thought imaginable.
Setting goals is positive reinforcement in making a change in your life. Without goals, living life seems uneventful, dull and tends to send a once positive individual spiraling downwards towards caverns of self-pity and despair with minimal chance of return. Goals are ambitions, dreams of what could be when you are living on your own terms, an opportunity for a better tomorrow, with a brighter future where dreams come true. Hard work and persistence are key factors in reaching any pre-set goals. Never giving up when things so astray will only build and strengthen the character of an individual, increasing confidence and intestinal fortitude to limits that will forever be a dominating positive influence throughout life.

Making a change in your life is not easy. It requires forethought and consideration for those in close association with you that may or may not be affected by such a change. Strategic planning combined with a winning and positive attitude will bring about drastic changes to a life once stuck in depression and ambiguity, a change that will be clearly noticeable by all, passed to future generations yet to come.
