Key Ideas

Blaming Others

Take responsibility for your own life, for how and where you are right now and find the right tools to change your situation.

You have the agency to change things, and no one can stop you from your own personal success.

Neglecting Your Health

This mistake has a lot of implications on all the other areas of your life. 

Take the time to build healthy habits. If you’re running on empty calories and coffee, you’re not going to make the best decisions for your future.

Staying in Your Comfort Zone

Choose to step outside of it, because you are not going to reach your goals if you are not walking out in the unknown.

Find the courage to look foolish, encounter awkward situations, or find unexpectedly challenging circumstances waiting.

Lifelong student

Make the choice to be a lifelong learner. Make learning an integral part of your life. 

The people who are constantly curious and constantly learning are the ones who are the most fulfilled and accomplished.

Setting Goals

It’s one thing to have a vague mental roadmap of where you’d like to be in the long term. It’s another thing entirely to write down specific, measurable, actionable goals you can start working toward right now.

Fear of failure

We are taught from a young age that failure is bad and something to fear. But, failure is an excellent stepping stone to success. 

We never learn to move out of our comfort zone ...

Failure is temporary

... and failure is good even if it feels really bad when it happens.

 Look for the greater message of the experience and expect it to, eventually, turn out for the good.

Routine failing

It means you are actually active, doing something, moving forward.

We limit ourselves, and we impede our ability to make big things happen when we buy into what society says will work or not work.

We must take a leap, take calculated risks, and be patient for the results. We don’t need to have everything worked out beforehand.

Make Dream a Reality

A dream is the root of all success, for having a dream does not limit you on what you can do. Successful people allow themselves to lean back and imagine the kind of life that is possible for them.

Fear Paralyzes Action

The most common reaction in a fear situation is the attitude of, “I can’t!”

This is the fear of failure that stops us from taking action. It often shuts down the brain and causes us to revert to the “fight-or-flight” reaction.

Visualize Yourself as Unafraid

Your self-image, the way you see yourself and think about yourself, is eventually altered by feeding your mind these positive mental pictures of yourself performing at your best.

So visualize yourself performing with confidence and competence in an area where you are fearful.
