Path to Success


There are a lot of blogs, videos, and courses trying to explain what is success and how to achieve it. This is an intro post for a series of posts about my personal experience/thoughts about Success and how I am trying to achieve it. 

I have read a lot of books on self-development and a common link between all of them in one word is 'belief'.  
If you want to get succeed, you have to believe that you will succeed. 

But is the belief enough? No

Without action, it is just a belief. How to make your belief into some action, which will make you succeed in your passion or work? Where to start and what to start?

Here comes the major part - Goal Setting. If you turn your belief into a Goal, it becomes achievable. 

Once Goal setting is done, if you set the roadmap for your goal with daily, weekly, monthly Targets, it becomes actionable. It may sound a little boring, but slicing the goals into small achievable action items makes it easier to achieve the larger goal.

Once we have these targets set, we have a clear picture of where we stand and what is the next step. And completing small targets will give a feeling of accomplishment which will further motivate us towards our goal.

Most people set goals and targets but they are not able to achieve their goal and they dropped in the middle. Do you know what is the reason? Targets

Targets can give you a feeling of accomplishment when you achieve them but can break your self-esteem if you don't complete them in a timely manner. When your self-esteem reduces, you will have a doubt in your belief and eventually drop it after some time. 

Again, it all because of your belief. When you believe you can and when you believe you cannot, both are true. 

Then how to make sure that our self-esteem is not getting low? Simply by achieving the targets, as per our schedule. Here comes the major player in success - Time Management. 

Most successful people, knowingly or unknowingly have the habit of dedicating time to their goal. Time management plays a vital role in achieving your goals. 

What exactly means Time Management?

It simply means, using your time wisely to be more productive and making time for all necessary tasks. If we have clear targets and managed our time effectively, then we have almost achieved half of our goal. With skill development, Hard-work and Perseverance, we can accomplish our goal. It may sound easy, but it is actually a rough road.


In the next posts, we will see in deep about Goal Setting and Time Management.

What I Learned today (07/04/21) - What are the stages in developing a skill?

Yesterday I learned about How and Where to start in Personal Development . As a continuation, today I learned the common 4 stages in developing our-self in any skill we need to improve. What are those common 4 Stages? These 4 stages are called "Four Stages of Competence" or "Conscious Competence learning model" . Lets see the four stages 1. First Stage - Unconscious Incompetence In this stage, we don't have an idea about the skill or we don't know where we stand. For example, If you want to learn and play football, at first you don't know your skill levels untill you try to play. This level is called Unconscious Incompetent.  The person who wants to develop a skill, unaware about their level or unconsciously incompetent in that skill. Most people, due to fear of failure , reside in this stage without trying. To break it, all we need to do is, "DO IT NOW" attitude. 2. Second Stage - Conscious Incompetence We have tried and we have some knowle

What Srini Learned today (01/04/21) - Is it possible to be rich and contented?

"Disclosure: Some of the links below are affiliate links, that means, at no additional cost to you, I will earn a commission if you click and purchase from the links."   There is a saying 'If you didn't learn anything new in a day, you have wasted the day' . So I am planning to learn something new everyday and share it with you all.  What I learned today? I started reading the book 'The Psychology of Money' (Affiliate link) by Morgan Housel. In the beginning of the book, there is a comparison between two men.  First one, 'Ronald Read' who was a Gas station attendant and Janitor for a long period of time but using tiny savings, made a fortune of $8 million . On the other hand, 'Richard Fuscone' - a Harvard MBA, Vice Chairman of a finance institute, went broke in his late years. I am always an avid reader of self development books. But this story changed something in my perception . I am  not gonna dive into who's policy is right a
