Reaching goals is a significant milestone for people. It’s the foundation to building strong self-confidence and self-worth. Setting goals is the easy part, accomplishing goals requires a lot of hard work. I want to discuss one particular OolaAccelerator that can make all the difference between success and failure, that is humility.
Humility requires you to set aside your ego. Being humble gets your head out of the way so your heart can lead. Our ego often gets in the way of success, because it clouds our judgment and it brings up past experiences in which we have failed. This creates fear and doubt, which in turn paralyzes us. Humility helps you overcome these obstacles and allows you to step outside yourself and seek help.
Far to frequently we are unwilling to ask for help because we believe it is a sign of weakness, when in fact it is just the opposite. Asking for help and or admitting you don’t have all the answers is an important step to growth.
I have been studying success for a long time and I have learned a common trait shared amongst the most successful people. It is a willingness to reach out for help. They understand that leveraging knowledge and experience from some one who has already scaled the mountain is essential for growth and future success. This can be a mentor, friend, coworker or coach. This is a crucial step to achieving goals. It can increase your rate of success by half. So why go it alone?
When you are setting a goal, stop and ask yourself, whom can I ask for help? Who has already had success in this area? The funny thing is, most people are willing to help. Why? Because it’s likely their success was in part due to the help they received. The ability to now pay it forward helps complete the circle.
The best part of the journey of life is to help others achieve their goals. There are few things better than having a part in helping someone succeed. When we experience success and have learned valuable lessons, we feel obligated to offer our knowledge and help. This is a universal truth, “what goes around comes around”.
