7 Small Things You Should Do To Be Successful by Opinionated: 12:18pm On Jun 07, 2017
We’re all familiar with the saying, “it’s the little things that count”. In the same vein, to be successful you have to pay attention and consistently do seemingly little things to achieve that goal. Jumia Travel, the leading online travel agency, shares 7 small things to do if you want to successful.

Focus More on Being Productive

It’s not enough to just be busy doing one thing or the other. To be successful, you must find ways to be productive in all you do. Nothing you commit your time, skills or knowledge to should be a waste. Find ways to always get things done efficiently and get tangible results from it.

Focus on Always Being At Your Best

To be successful, you should live by this mantra, “If it’s worth my time, it’s worth my best.” Try to create a track record of diligence and commitment for yourself in whatever you do. Ultimately, this will culminate in consistent excellence for you, which is bound to eventually single you out for good in your endeavours and lead you to success. If you’re in doubt, just give it a shot. Also, find, relate with and hang around people who complement your strengths and help bring out the best in you.

Focus on Making Continuous Improvement

Your best last year should not be your best this year. Focus on continually improving and expanding your capabilities. Consistent improvement secures your relevance in the scheme of things, especially in the workplace. Take a step at a time, with little improvements and advancements here and there, and before you know it you’ll surprise even yourself.

Take Care of Your Body

You can hardly function at your best and be successful, if your body and mind is weak. Success is largely mental and your body plays a vital role in helping you achieve success, so you should never for any reason neglect the two. It’s going to be quite difficult for a sick or terminally ill man or woman to be successful. Besides, the point of striving for success in the first place, is to actually enjoy it. Pay attention to your mental and physical health.

Live a Balanced Life

Success isn’t only measured by monetary wealth. To be truly successful, you’ll have to agree that vital aspects of your life have to be at least be okay (if not perfect). You should learn to balance making money with living a healthy life and paying attention to your family and friends. You must put your life and personal goals in perspective, and at every point learn to give to Caesar what is Caesar’s.

Be Positive and Responsible


Every time you want to be negative about certain aspects of your life, sit down and think of what it will cost you to just be positive. Optimism and positivity enhances your drive, which is very essential for success in the first place. One can hardly succeed without drive. You should also be responsible enough to take responsibility for your success. No one can stop you from succeeding if you are truly determined to. Well, no one but yourself.

Be Focused and Consistent

Remember the saying, ‘Jack of all trades, master of none’. Focus and consistency are extremely vital ingredients for success. Assess the five most successful people in the world, there is one thing they all have in common – a ‘niche’. They’re all known for something. Being focused and consistent helps you remain patient and persistent when you need to be. It also helps to enhance your strengths and helps you overcome your weaknesses. It saves you from procrastination and helps you see through your plans. Be focused and consistent. It will go a long way for you.

We really need to address the issue of graduate trainees in this country.

If every graduate job is asking for 3 years experience, where are people going to get it.

Secondly, government really needs to look into this contract staff of a thing. It is utter nonsense. It is even against the law.

Every employee is supposed to contribute to the National Housing Fund, and Pension. These ones don't even have that benefit.

Banks declare tens of billions of naira in profit every year, they cannot afford to employ full staff. That's a shame.

Contract staffing should be outlawed for indigenes. Even if it will hold, only the length of service will differ. The terns of service must be the same as other full time staff.
