The labels you put on yourself

The labels you put on yourself

They shape your actions. If you think of yourself as lazy or weak, you act in accordance with that label.

Instead of placing labels on yourself, try making statements indicating you’re in the process of improving. Change “I am” to “I’m working on it.”

Make success chase you

Make success chase you

Focus on short bursts of productivity

Focus on short bursts of productivity

Set aside short blocks of time for focused and productive work. To make the most out of it:

  • Get rid of distractions.
  • Commit to a realistic time frame you can follow through (concentrated work + breaks).

Value experience over credentials

Value experience over credentials

If you feel unqualified for the path you're walking on, keep in mind that expertise comes from knowledge and experience — not from a piece of paper.

You're not wasting time

You're not wasting time

Even if you make a bad choice, you still gain:

  • Experience: Even if you spend years in a career you weren’t suited for, you’ve gained useful skills along the way.
  • Connection: Treat every person you meet as having something valuable to offer. 
  • Feedback: When things don’t work out your way on your initial attempt, you’ll have a better idea of what to do next time.
