S - Sense of direction
U - Understanding
C - Confidence
C - Clarity

S - Self-confidence
S - Self-acceptance
That's as clear and simple as it can get, wouldn't you agree?
Success may seem like this huge mountain that we need to overcome. In reality, all we need to be on the path of success is: a sense of direction, understanding, clarity, esteem, self-confidence and self-acceptance. If you have all 7 and you pair it up with extreme action taking, you are moving closer and closer towards your dreams. You're not far from making it all a reality.
Dissecting each aspect of success...
1.) Sense of direction
This is really important. Sense of direction is pretty much the same as having a vision. The important question is... "Where do you want to go?". Developing a road map mentally and putting it on writing is critical. This is how we know what to do next and having a sense of direction wouldn't create a lost cause. Being specific in what you want is the key to getting the things that you specifically want.
You may be thinking "Why do I need to be understanding...for what reason?!". Each and every one of us come from different backgrounds. We're experiencing different things in life. Instead of blaming and making excuses, understand that life is a series of challenges. Where ever you are now, accept it, take responsibility, realize that you are where you are because of the decisions you've made and do something about it. It's far more productive than wasting time blaming the whole world except yourself, wouldn't you agree?
No one in the history of mankind has done amazing things without having confidence in in what they do. Being confident releases a different type of energy, a different type of aura. An aura that influences people and brings them up...not down.
We're back. Like I mentioned before, the clearer the vision, the more specific, the more badass. Clarity can help create motivation, passion, inspiration and most importantly...focus.
The clearer you are with your purpose or your "WHY", the clearer the images in your mind become. Whatever images play within your mind will directly create an output which is in form of emotion. The stronger and more empowering the images, the stronger and more empowering the emotions that you will be reaping. Like I said...it's important to stay clear and precise with your vision.
I can describe this in one word that pretty much sums it all up and that's "RESPECT". Respect for who?
Most importantly for yourself but also never forget to respect the people that will help bring you to the top. Respect goes a long way and people never forget nor get turned off by it. Be aggressive in a respectful manner.
You become a different person. It's like all of a sudden, you've discovered your "other self" as Napoleon Hill likes to put it.
If you don't believe in yourself...if you're not confident in your skills and talents...then you will never achieve anything. You will always be mentally consumed by fear, worry and anxiety.
One really awesome way to stopping these unwanted feelings is by getting better and growing. Fear is nothing but an illusion projected by our subconscious mind. It's an outcome from projecting scary images of yourself messing up and failing within your mind. Worry is pretty much the same but this time, you're underestimating your skills and talents (if you're well-prepared then why worry?!). Anxiety is worrying about the future. Live in the moment and whatever decision you've made, stop trying to mentally escape. Be in the moment!
Whatever situation or circumstance you're in...accept it. If you never accept it, you will always struggle internally and externally. You need to learn how to accept what you can't change (everything in the past) and change what you can't accept (your current lifestyle, relationships, finances, etc.)
Moving forward in life starts with you and only you. No one else can do anything about it but you. If you don't come to terms with yourself then it means you're lying to yourself. Being true to yourself and accepting who you are is always important and it's a critical piece to the life puzzle. People who are lost are merely people who don't or can't accept who they are. One thing I can say is "If you don't like who you've become...change it!".
Start feeding your mind with positive energy and surround yourself around influential individuals.
