                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    To some, when they think of success, they imagine wealth; others want power; some just want to make a positive impact on the world.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    All of these are perfectly valid, indeed success is a concept that means different things to different people. Though no matter what success is to you, it almost certainly isn’t something will come easily.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    There are countless guides and books to being successful, however, as success is personal and unique to each individual. The advice contained in these books can often not be relevant. Therefore following the advice of a single individual can often be unhelpful.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    With this in mind, considering the advice of a great many people, people whose ideas of success were different both to each other, and quite possibly, to you can be a good alternative.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    What follows is a list of thirteen of the best pieces of advice from some of the most successful people who have ever lived.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    1.Think big.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      From Michelangelo Buonarroti, Great Renaissance Artist:

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      “The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark.”

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      There are few artists as influential as Michaelangelo. Today centuries after his death, his work still inspires and connects to people. His work is world famous, just think of his statue of David, or the Mural in the Sistine Chapel in the Vatican.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      Imagine then, if he decided not to work as an artist.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      Being a successful artist has always been extremely difficult, imagine if he decided to give up this ambition in favour of something easier?

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      Oftentimes, people often decided to put their dreams aside for something more “realistic”. To give up their dream for something easier. This quote teaches us the danger of such a point of view.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        From Oprah Winfrey, Media Mogul:

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        “You know you are on the road to success if you would do your job and not be paid for it.”

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        This is a good quote to remember and think about when you’re at work.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        Imagine being as successful as possible in your current job. Ultimately you’ll probably find yourself working extremely hard and this it will take up much of your time.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        If it’s a job you hate, then being successful at it might only mean filling your life with something you hate to do. What’s the sense in this?

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        Instead, why not focus on doing something you love? When you’ve found what you’re passionate about, you get the motivation to keep you moving. Success at this means the fulfilment of your dreams.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        Not sure what your passion is yet?

Many successful musicians spent years of their lives doing unpaid performances, the only reason they kept playing was because they loved to perform.

Neither can be mastered, but both can be influenced. How you go about that is the key to success.”

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          All too often, people think that to be successful, they need to make the object of their success their life.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          If a person thinks their job will lead them to success, then they may spend countless hours per day, and well into the evening working hard.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          However this comes at the cost of rest, your health and having an enjoyable life. Ultimately they may burn out and cease to be successful at their job anyway.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          If success comes from having a strong social life and a good group of friends, their job may suffer; meaning that they may lose their job, and then be unable to afford going out with friends.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          In these ways, success, as Phil Knight says above, is helped by balance. Think of it as a balance between rest and work, or work and play.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            “Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently.”

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            There is a story, it’s unconfirmed whether it actually happened, yet the message within is none the less true:

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            Thomas Edison inventing the lightbulb was the result of several hundred failed attempts. In an interview, he was asked “How do you feel after all of your failed attempts?”

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            His response was great, “I didn’t fail, I learned hundreds of ways not to invent the lightbulb”

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            He saw each “failure” as a lesson. From that lesson he learned what won’t work, and also might work instead.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            Each failed attempt, each rejection, were key steps on his path to success. It is easy to feel like you should give up after a failure. But perhaps in that failure is a lesson.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            Pay attention to your failures, study them. Perhaps then you’ll learn how to succeed.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            5. Have an unwavering resolution to succeed.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              “I made a resolve then that I was going to amount to something if I could. And no hours, nor amount of labor, nor amount of money would deter me from giving the best that there was in me. And I have done that ever since, and I win by it. I know.”

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              This, in many ways relates to the above quote about learning from your failures.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              It’s the easiest thing in the world to give up from a failure. The only way to push on is if you have the true burning desire to succeed, to not be moved or dissuaded from your goals.

With the desire, it is merely an obstacle to go through.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                “It had long since come to my attention that people of accomplishment rarely sat back and let things happen to them. They went out and happened to things.”

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                Though it was said hundreds of years ago, it works just as much today as it ever had. It applies to literally any successful person.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                When we think of the time he lived in, we think of the time in a way shaped by him. When we think of Renissance era Italy, we think of Michaelangelo and Leonardo Da Vinci.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                Or think about the present day:

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                Bill Gates or Steve Jobs. Our current way of life would simply be incomparably different if they didn’t accomplish what they did.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                You’re probably reading this article on a device by a company that they either founded or companies influenced by them.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                All these figures were proactive, they saw ways to do things differently and did them. If they let the world shape them, then they’d simply fit into the background. Instead they shaped the world.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                Applying this to you?

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                Don’t be afraid of going outside the norm. If you can think of a better way to do something, do it that way. If you fail, try again.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  The most important single ingredient in the formula of success is knowing how to get along with people.”

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  The best leaders and some of the most influential people (and Theodore Roosevelt is one of the best leaders and one of the most influential people to have lived) were not those who caused commotions, who fought with people or disregarded people; but were people who were friendly to those around them.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  People liked them. They wanted them to do well.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  This is key to good leadership.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  It’s logical. If someone likes you, they want to help you; if you give them a suggestion, they’ll gladly follow through with it.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  But if someone doesn’t like you, they may either refuse to help or actively get in your way.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  What’s more, it’s always a good idea to cultivate good relationships. You can never tell who will prove to become someone who’ll be able to help you in a big way, or even be a good and supportive friend.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  As such, help people and they may help you; and be good to people, and they my be good to you.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    It is an unfortunate truth that those with the boldest ideas are often disregarded.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    Most of us are taught from an early age to think and do things similarly to everyone else. This can be great to fill an existing role. But to truly do things differently (and all successful people did things differently), you need to think differently.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    If you have a new idea, don’t throw it away because it’s new and different; instead, celebrate it. Your strange new idea might one day be the one that leads you to success.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      It is possible that you will come across those who doubt you and your ability to succeed. You must not become one of these people because the moment you cease believing and dreaming is the moment these dreams fall away.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        “Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude.”

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        Like the above quote says, you need to trust in your ability to succeed. This is the only way to cultivate the right mindset.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        Replace negative thoughts with the positive ones. You need to approach problems, not as obstacles stopping you, but merely tasks that need to be completed for you to keep going.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        If you stay positive and think like this, setbacks won’t affect you so much, people’s doubts won’t impact you and even the biggest obstacles will seem like minor problems.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        However with the wrong mindset of doubt, you’ll be much easier to stop.

This can be made far worse if others doubt us too.

It is important to ignore this too.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            You’ll never become successful if you don’t work towards your goal in life and keep working towards it.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              “Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              In ancient Greece, there was a group of Oracles who lived in Delphi. Everyone who needed advice or to know their future visited them, from the poorest of society to kings. Above the doorway of the temple were the words “know thyself”.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              If you strongly believe and desire something, the chances are that you already have an idea how to get there. If not, you may naturally know what things will help you and what things will slow you down.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              It’s like how your body can detect danger even when things seem safe.

This clearly suggests that the key to achieving success, in whatever you wish, comes down to the way you approach it mentally.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              Moreover, no matter what stage of life you’re at now, you can still make a difference and pursue success.
