This List of Infographics About Achieving Success Will Surely Inspire You

What is the way to success? These infographics will teach you how to be successful and help you along your way.

Dream Job

    I thought I would start with the above graphic. Most of what people spend their time on in life is work. So you might as well do something you enjoy doing. Chances are if you enjoy what you do you will be successful at it.

      This infographic talks about when people are successful. There is no perfect time to start doing something where you have an interest. As you can see from the infograph above most of these people became successful in their 30s, but you can also find success later in life like Ray Kroc, McDonald’s founder.

        Life is a series of small decisions that lead to where you want to be. No one makes one large jump and lands instantly on success. One percent improvement every day is doable. One hundred percent improvement in one day is daunting. As the great Ohio State football coach Woody Hayes said, “football is 3 yards forward and a cloud of dust. If we do that every possesion, we win the game.”

          When you look at all the successful people in this infographic what stands out?  The fact that during their professional journey they all failed at one point or another.  Some of them focussed on one industry and tried until they got it right.  Others were more interested in owning their own business and when they found the right product or industry and the best way to find customers, they too were big successes.  The lesson learned here is never give up.  You don’t know if your success is just around the corner.

            No one is successful without failure. The inventor Thomas Edison said, “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.” If you learn from your mistakes then you did not fail. You learned.

              Many people have a dream of starting their own business. The first graphic I posted in this article showed that you should do what you love, are good at and can get paid for. This infographic illustrates the importance of planning, preparation and building the right team. You must surround yourself with good people. No one can build anything alone. Even Sir Richard Branson would agree with that. No man is an island, but one man can own an island. Isn’t that right Sir Richard?

              infographic6

                Hard work is what builds success there is no easy path, no silver bullet. If you love what you are setting out to do the hard work won’t seem like work, but will seem like progress. Bill Gates used to get so involved in his work when he first started Microsoft he would forget to eat. Now that’s focus and devotion.

                  The details matter. Even something so small as which side the toilet paper hangs off the roll can add to a customer experience. I won’t share with you which side I prefer. I don’t want to bias you. Read this infographic and decide for yourself.

                  infographic10

                    This infographicrepresents the responses from people of three different social strata who were asked “What are the main reasons for success?” See where hard work registered for rich people. Hard work, that’s the secret to success.

                    The Daily Rituals of 7 Successful CEOs

                    The Daily Rituals of 7 Successful CEOs

                    One of my favorite success quotes ever comes from one of the original and most successful ‘CEOs’ of his era: Aristotle. Here’s what he said:

                    “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.”

                    This advice is just as sound today as it was when Aristotle first expressed it, way back when. I’m reminded of this at least once a week, when I interview an inspiring author, leader, or successful CEO on my show. I ask my guests a series of questions about what has contributed to their success and their ability to build something meaningful.

                    You want to know what nearly all of them say? Almost every time, they respond by telling me that their success is the result of simple habits  enacted day after day.

                    These quotes from seven successful CEOs demonstrate the daily rituals that have contributed to their success:

                    1. Promote what you love.

                    “It’s so much better to promote what you love than to bash what you hate.” – Jessica Alba, CEO of The Honest Company

                    2. Develop a feedback loop.

                    “I think it’s very important to have a feedback loop, where you’re constantly thinking about what you’ve done and how you could be doing it better. I think that’s the single best piece of advice: constantly think about how you could be doing things better and questioning yourself.” – Elon Musk, CEO of TESLA Motors

                    3. Create things that are better, not just “different.”

                    “Our task today is to find singular ways to create the new things that will make the future not just different, but better—to go from 0 to 1. The essential first step is to think for yourself. Only by seeing our world anew, as fresh and strange as it was to the ancients who saw it first, can we both re-create it and preserve it for the future.” – Peter Thiel, CEO of Palantir and best-selling author of Zero To One.

                    4. Meditate.

                    “Meditate. Breathe consciously. Listen. Pay attention. Treasure every moment. Make the connection.” – Oprah Winfrey, CEO of OWN Network

                    5. Read every day.

                    “Read 500 pages every day. That’s how knowledge works. It builds up like compound interest.”-Warren Buffet, CEO of investment firm Berkshire-Hathaway

                    6. Block time for email.

                    “Set aside a 20- to 30-minute chunk of time two or three times a day for email. Do not check continually through the day.” – Doug Camplejohn, CEO of predictive lead marketing company FlipTop.

                    7. Make your customers happy.

                    “We see our customers as invited guests to a party, and we are the hosts. It’s our job every day to make every important aspect of the customer experience a little bit better.” – Jeff Bezos, CEO of Amazon.com

                    Develop the right rituals. Become a successful CEO.

                    If the majority of these daily habits are new to you, avoid making the crucial mistake of adopting all of these habits at once. Research on habit-formation indicates that lasting habits are formed one at a time.

                    Advertising

                    For example, let’s say you’re excited about developing the following daily habits:

                    • daily reading,
                    • daily meditation, and
                    • updating your to-do list every night

                    Let’s say that daily reading is the one that excites you the most out of the three habits noted above. It would be wise of you to begin by choosing and scheduling time to read every day, and then sticking to that time until it becomes a habit. Once it feels effortless and automatic, you’ll know that you’ve turned it into a daily habit. Now you’re ready to install the next habit… and the next… Until before you know it, you’ll start looking in the mirror and seeing the reflection of a successful CEO.
