5. Become Deeply Committed

Being committed means to make a solid, well thought out plan that displays the best path to achieve your goals and then sticking to it without deviating from your plan.

6. Work Within the Laws

6. Work Within the Laws

Muhammad Ali, Joe Frazier, Bernard Hopkins and many other greats obeyed the laws of good health and self-discipline.

Laws are goal posts that show you where to aim. They are like bridges that connect one side of your intention with the other side of your achievements. If you break a law either consciously or unconsciously, the mountain top gets higher and you may never be able to reach it.

7. Create Personal Values

7. Create Personal Values

Personal values give you a purpose for staying committed to the goal even when everything else seems meaningless.

Sure you can have low morals, be determined and still reach your goals, but if you want to remain happy no matter what position you’re in, then don’t “sell yourself out” or step on someone else’s toes just to get further. Keep the personal values aligned to the laws so that you work in a proactive way.

8. Realign Your Actions Regularly

Remember you can only bend for the law but the law cannot bend for you. This is true for all kinds of laws, whether they’re mental or physical.

Seems simple, but many people find it difficult to break a routine they’re so used to, especially if it coincided with their initial beliefs.

9. Take Action Now

9. Take Action Now

You can only learn from your past so you need to put your attention on what you do now. It’s all good to have a vision and a plan of getting there, but the steps you make now will lead you to the goal or away from it.

Aim to make good use of any opportunity that you get on any given day because it may not come around again. Do not wait for inspiration but instead, you must seek it and you will surely find it.

10. Don’t Forget the Finish Line

10. Don’t Forget the Finish Line

There’s a well-known saying by Mike Tyson – “Everybody has a plan until they get punched in the face “. This is when reality sinks in and you have to deal with the present situation.

There’s no doubt there are times when nothing goes according to plan and you just feel like giving up.

Fortitude is what will ultimately make you as a person and is what all great people are capable of, no matter how bad the situation is.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
