Want to Succeed? Here's A Very Straightforward Advice

It seems like the secret to success isn't a secret at all.

It's simple: Decide. Commit. Succeed.

You just have to decide. To make up your mind that this I will do. To make a decision that you are going to be successful no matter what. To have one thing in mind, which is to succeed.

And then once you made the decision, you commit to it. Committing to the decision that no matter how hard it gets, how painful, mundane, boring, or taxing it is, you will do it.

That's it. Very simple.

Imagine what you will achieve once you decide to become successful at something, and really commit to it no matter what. Whether you fail or feel discourage at times, imagine if you stick to it. Then, you'd become so persistent that it becomes impossible not to succeed.

Imagine that.

Like really, if you just decide and commit to it with all of you, there's just really nothing you cannot do.

So decide. Now.

And commit to it.

Success is on the way!

For the record, personally, I tried numerous time management systems and really did my best to stick with it as much as possible. Despite my effort, I customarily drift off and find myself searching for another way.

I have also adopted some productivity tips to manage distractions and to keep my focus, yet it still wasn't enough. The first four months of this year for instance, I used two online timers each with its own purpose, and another thr…
