7 things successful people do

Does the fear of failing stop you from trying?

Do you want to know how to set yourself goals to be the best and most successful version of yourself?

Well, look no further! Here are our seven top tips for success:


1. Imagine success in your mind’s eye

If you begin to imagine yourself succeeding, then you’ll soon find that you are.

It’s often called the law of attraction; whether you realise it or not, you are responsible for bringing both positive and negative influences into your own life.

Einstein once said “imagination is more important than knowledge”, so imagine yourself graduating with your friends and family around you. It will give you the drive and determination to study hard and achieve great grades.

2. Don’t fear failure

Don’t let the fear of failing hold you back.

Maybe you’ll make some mistakes along the way, but mistakes help you learn. Instead of a failure, see your mistakes as opportunities. Each one is a chance to improve and grow.

Fall seven times, stand up eight.

3. List your goals

Write your goals down and how you aim to achieve them.

What do you want to have achieved by the end of the year? Do you want to be a doctor or an engineer? Who would you love to work for? How will you make that happen?

Michelangelo once said “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.”

4. Set yourself clear timelines

Without setting yourself a timeline of when you want to achieve your goals, it’s easy to put things off.

Resist the urge to procrastinate – be proactive. Stop putting things off until tomorrow!

As a student, it’s important to set yourself clear deadlines. It will help you to manage your workload and revision time so you can achieve the best grades possible.
