The Psychology of Success

Written by

Words by Ebraheem Al Samadi, CEO & Founder of Forever Rose

 

When  it  comes  to  the  psychology  of  success,  the  first  thing  you  need  to  ask  yourself  is  why  you  want  to  be successful.  By  success,  I refer to  achieving something  in  your  life  that  you  currently aspire towards.  What is emotionally  driving  you  towards  it?  You  might  say  you  want  a  "pay  rise",  or  "more free time"  however  these  are objectives, as opposed to the fundamental reason why. The "why" is what you need to consider, it is your emotional driver  behind your objectives. For example, the true  reason  for  wanting  that  pay  rise  may be  because  you  have a young family and wish to build a beautiful home for them to create unforgettable childhood memories in, or being able to spend more precious time with your family whom you may rarely see due to work.  It’s  these  emotion-based reasons that  direct  and  push  us  forwards and always deserve reflection to meet our aspirations.

That means if you aren't receiving word-of-mouth recommendations for your business, you're missing out on the single most effective and trusted means of attracting new clients. And despite the prolific influence of social media on modern society, an extensive fact base has been established by marketing researchers that reveals that the vast majority of sharing of information about brands is actually offline, rather than online.

Written by

Words by Sally Sarieddine, Founder of LaLaQueen


I firmly believe that being conscious and ethical is not just the hottest trend in fashion right now, it is also non-negotiable in the workplace. As companies get more engaged in the sustainability arena there are more and more opportunities to work from the inside out. Increasingly sustainability will become part of everyone's job so it is important to be up to date and aware of the issues.

How to use competition for your own success

Written by

From a young age, competition is a strong motivator for progression and success. Starting out, it may be a simple rivalry with a sibling, later through sports played at school, and more notably seen in the working world between businesses and colleagues. Competition can be seen as negative but as a part of human nature, “survival of the fittest” inevitably pushes us to achieve.
