How to become successful from Nothing?

All of us have the dream to become successful in life. Unless you are born in a rich family, you have to struggle and start from almost nothing. This is a common problem for most of us. During our childhood and teenage years, we dream to become a doctor, engineer, rich business and we dream big most of the time. However, not all of us can achieve success and in fact, most of us have ordinary life. In this article, I am going to discuss about becoming successful from nothing.

However, when we reach the age of 19-20, we have to face the reality. May be, you had the dream to study in a good subject in one of the top universities of your country. However, when the time comes for university admission, you find yourself struggling for even entering in an ordinary university. Most people think that studying in Humanities or Arts means having no prospect in future career. Many people struggle to get a job after graduating. So, they start fearing that may be they will have to remain unemployed for whole life.

The main point is that we give up easily, we fear a lot and we become frustrated within a short time. I admit that it is logical to get frustrated when you do not have a job or when you fail to get admitted in the university you dreamt your whole life. However, it is suicidal to think that it is the end of the world for you and you cannot do anything in life. When you start to believe that you don’t have a future then it becomes impossible for you to try for success.

During tough times, the most important thing is to ensure that you can keep your mind calm or even you can inspire yourself. It is almost impossible for most of us. However, you have to try for that. The main challenge is here and you have to try with all of your heart during desperate times. The battle can just be win or loss during such desperate times.

Believe in your dream, keep the dream alive in your heart and mind. All right, I am convinced about keeping the dream alive, now what next? The next thing to do is to determine or pin point about your goal. The problem is that during our young years, we get lost inside 4-5 dreams about our life and career.

In order to earn money, you have to be skilled at something. Bill Gates used his skill from an early age and changed the world. Diego Maradona just focused on playing football and he became perhaps the greatest footballer of all time. All right, they are famous celebrities and you and I are just ordinary people. Many people earn a decent amount of money by just selling tea roadside in the city that I live in- Dhaka, Bangladesh. They can do it because they just focus on making and selling tea day and night.

To become skilled in something, you have to try for it. You have to know about it and train yourself. Knowledge and training these two things help you to develop your skill in something. Most of us do not give value to these two things. The more time and effort you give the better. Make reading a part of your daily life. Be eager to learn all the time. Start practicing from today. These things are not so tough and even if you fail then it is no problem.

Actually, failure is not a bad thing as long as you try seriously. No one on earth can become successful all the time. If we can learn from our failure then it becomes our experience and next time, we use our experience so that we can become successful.

One of the problems that we all face is the lack of focus or concentration. We get distracted by different things. We also do not like to work. These are common problems for all of us. Dreaming that you will work hard 10-12 hours a day is fine but implementing it is a different ball game. How can we ensure that we will work hard day after day? At first it is very tough. You may dream that from tomorrow you will work hard from morning to night. Then after waking up, you may struggle to work seriously after just 30 minutes.

What is an effective solution to this problem? Aim low but aim seriously. Just start with one hour a day. For that one hour, you will totally focus on your work. If that is tough for you then do it twice a day of 30 minutes each. It is surely possible for anyone. Then, gradually increase your time and take it to 2 hours a day, 3 hours a day and within a few months, you will be able to work seriously for 8 hours a day.

When you seriously try to do something you will face many obstacles. People around you will make fun. This is one area that you have to fight with all of your heart. Do not bother about them. It is your life and as long as you are not doing anything illegal or immoral, go ahead and keep on trying. You will notice that after one year many of them have started to admire you.

It is not that you will achieve overnight success. What will happen is that if you can focus on knowledge, if you can train yourself and practice a lot, if you can work seriously 8 hours a day then success is bound to come to you sooner or later.

So, let me summarize the main points:

Decide and tell yourself that you are going to try your best no matter how bad the condition becomes.
Pin point the skill you want to acquire. Try to be specific.
Make a habit of reading and read a lot about the field that you want to master. Read, watch videos in Youtbe and talk to others about it.
Start with just one hour of focused effort and gradually you will be able to reach to 8 hours a day.
Don’t bother when others make fun of you.
You will notice significant change and improvement within a year.
If you are convinced that start from today.

  2. May be the first inspirational post at this platform which I have read and that is this post.Thank you so much vaiya for these guidelines.
    Actually, Aim is the most important fact and we should try to focus ourselves on a specific aim to be skillful. But what actually we do?
    We go run for 3-4 times for our future career and become failure to get enough skill to any field and that’s why we can’t become perfect for anything.
    Our aim could be lower or higher but we should take it seriously and do hard work for it.
    Another interesting thing is,
    Starting hard work.
    We can’t become a hard worker for our dream within a short time. For this, we need maintain regularity along with our patience.
