Assume radical responsibility

 ... for the outcomes of your life. This means that you accept whatever problem you have in your life as your own job to fix.

It does not matter if it was your fault. It does not matter if it is or isn't fair. It doesn't matter what put you into this situation. Reaching for reasons why you aren't responsible for the problem is how you justify not taking action.

Give yourself permission to be successful

Most people do not believe they have to work on unconscious resistance to success, because they don't realize it exists.

But almost everyone has ways in which they are afraid to earn more money or elevate their status in life. A lot of this has to do with fears about worth, safety and being accepted.

Prioritize "clarity over cleverness"

Nail down your life's "tagline," so you can prioritize around your ultimate goal in life, and so that other people know exactly who you are, what you do, and how they can utilize you.

It’s simple: If you want to live an exceptional life, you can’t behave like everyone else.

Everybody has their own definition of success. And most people probably would like to live an above-average life . But the reality is that the vast majority of people never do. Most people live ordinary, mediocre existences.

Hundreds of highly successful executives have shared with me the daily habits they say have helped them get ahead. And it's not rocket science. It's little things, like choosing to get up every day at 4 a.m. and exercise, or making meditation a ritual, or getting serious about to-do lists.

Here are a few other simple life choices you can make to radically alter your life.

Don’t niche down too quickly. Spend the first few months building your side hustle up by learning, growing, and trying different strategies to see what works best for your business.

Don’t try to fix the difficult person

Accept them exactly as they are. 

Accept that they are unable to change, at least at this point in time. Unless you see real change — proof that this person is making an effort to listen and meet you halfway — you can assume that their behavior is what it has always been.
