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?

                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.

                    6 Reasons Why Perfectionism Kills Your Productivity

                    6 Reasons Why Perfectionism Kills Your Productivity

                    Perfectionism sounds like a first world problem, but it stifles creative minds. Having a great idea but doubting your ability to execute it can leave you afraid to just complete and publish it. Some of the most successful inventors failed, but they kept going in pursuit of perfection. On the other end of the spectrum, perfectionism can hinder people when they spend too much time seeking recognition, gathering awards and wasting time patting themselves on the back. Whatever your art, go make good art and don’t spend time worrying that your idea isn’t perfect enough and certainly don’t waste time coming up with a new idea because you’re still congratulating yourself for the last one.

                    1. Remember, perfection is subjective.

                    If you’re worried about achieving perfectionism with any single project so much that you find yourself afraid to just finish it, then you aren’t being productive. Take a hard look at your work, edit and revise, then send it our into the world. If the reviews aren’t the greatest, learn from the feedback so you can improve next time.

                    2. Procrastination masquerades itself as perfectionism.

                    People who procrastinate aren’t always lazy or trying to get out of doing something. Many who procrastinate do so because perfectionism is killing their productivity, telling them that if they wait a better idea will come to them.

                    3. Recognize actions that waste time.

                    Artists and all creative people need time to incubate; those ideas will only grow when properly watered, but if you’re not engaging in an activity that will help foster creativity, you might just be wasting time. Remember to do everything with purpose, even relaxing.

                    4. Don’t discriminate against your worth.

                    No one is actually perfect. We often have tremendous ideas or write things that move people emotionally, but no one attains that final state of being perfect. So, don’t get down if your second idea isn’t as good as your first—or vice versa. Perfectionists tend to be the toughest critics of their work, so don’t criticize yourself. You are not your work no matter how good or how bad.

                    5. Stress races your heart and freezes your innovation.

                    Stress is a cyclic killer that perfectionists know well because that same system that engages and causes your palms to sweat over a great idea is the same system that kicks in and worries you that you’re not good enough. Perfectionism means striving for that ultimate level, and stress can propel you forward excitedly or leave you shaking in fear of the next step.

                    6. Meeting deadlines beats waiting for perfect work.

                    Don’t let your fear of failure prevent you from meeting your deadline. Perfection is subjective and if you’re wasting time or procrastinating, you should just finish the job and learn from any mistakes. Being productive means completing work. You shouldn’t try for months or even years to perfect one project when you can produce projects that improve over time.
