"Work hard at your job and you can make a living. Work hard on yourself and you can make a fortune." 

Work On Yourself

Your work is a reflection of you. If you want something different: improve yourself.

If you're not getting the results you're looking for, stop looking for better strategies. Instead, look inside. Try to continuously improve yourself, by expanding your vision, skills, and abilities.

Put Yourself In Difficult Situations

You need to put yourself into positions that create immense pressure. The kind of pressure that will either make or break you. 

This is how you purge out your weakness and small-mindedness. It won't be pretty. But it will change you.

Don't Copy Other People

If you're following someone else's tracks, where do you think those tracks will lead you? To your own destination or to theirs?

If you don't know who you are, you'll always try to be someone else. And thus, you'll never be the best. Your work will always be a cheap imitation. It will lack the feeling that produced the work or the idea.

Stay In Love With The Process

When you are in love with the process, you seek feedback, mentoring, and coaching , even when you're at the top of your game.

You surround yourself with people who aren't afraid to tell you the truth. You avoid people who suck-up and only tell you what they think you want to hear. 

Never Forget Why You're Doing This

Don't throw your value-systems out the door in hopes of quick success.

The moment you start compromising, you won't stop compromising.

All you need to do is become very good at living each day

If you learn to master your day, you’ll learn how to master your weeks, months, years, and life. Momentum is created or destroyed every day with the first few decisions you make.

Loneliness

It isn’t defined by the number of people in your life; instead, it’s the distance between what you want out of your relationships and what you’re getting.

So it’s absolutely possible t...

Make small talk

Have quick, non-threatening conversations throughout the day: make small talk with your barista, the cashier at the grocery store, anyone you encounter who seems receptive.

Think of them as stretching a muscle: not the same as a full workout, but beneficial nonetheless. When you’re lonely, you go inward, and just stretching that little bit can kick-start a process that helps you feel better.

Find a state of flow

Do something you find totally engaging, to the point you lose track of time.

That activity doesn’t have to be mentally engaging or intellectually rigorous. Maybe it’s reading, running, or cleaning. If you’re truly immersed in what you’re doing, no matter what it is, you won’t have the mental space to be consumed by loneliness.

Self Reliance

If you’re waiting for someone to give you the right training to change your job or do something radically different in life you will wait forever.

Learning to Learn

Learning is not a rigidly formal system of precisely labeled steps.

Learning is messy. It’s trial and error. It’s failing and then failing again and then slowly figuring it out.

Give Up Magical Beliefs

You can’t borrow someone’s motivation. No matter how many books you read or chants you do you won’t become more motivated.

Motivation comes from inside. It comes from you and nowhere else.
