Be a Person of Action

Be a Person of Action

Michelangelo, Leonardo Da Vinci, Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, and others shaped the world. They did not sit "back and let things happen to them. They went out and happened to things."

Don’t be afraid of going outside the norm. If you can think of a better way to do something, do it that way. If you fail, try again.

Michelangelo
The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark.
Find What You Love to Do and Do It

Focus on doing something you love.

When you’ve found what you’re passionate about, you get the motivation to keep you moving.

Learn How to Balance Life

If people think their job will lead to success, they might spend too much time on it and neglect other areas of their life.

Keep a balance between work, rest, health and life. 

Do Not Be Afraid of Failure

See each “failure” as a lesson. For Thomas Edison, each failed attempt, each rejection, were key steps on his path to success.

AS Henry Ford stated: “Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently.”

Resolve to Succeed

It’s the easiest thing in the world to let failure keep you down.

The only way to push on is if you will not be moved or dissuaded from your goals.

Cultivate Positive Relationships

The best leaders and some of the most influential people were friendly to those around them. People liked them. They wanted them to do well. This is key to good leadership.

Introducing New Ideas

To truly do things differently (and all successful people did things differently), you need to think differently. If you have a new idea, celebrate it.

Success has to be something you can imagine yourself achieving.

Believe in yourself. Keep dreaming.

Maintain a Positive Mental Attitude

Trust in your ability to succeed. 

Replace negative thoughts with positive ones. Approach problems as tasks that need to be completed. If you stay positive, setbacks won't affect you so much.

Don’t Let Discouragement Stop You

When surrounded by doubts, giving up can actually seem like a good idea. Don't let those thoughts discourage you.

Work Hard

You’ll never become successful if you don’t work towards your goal in life. True success comes from hard work.

Follow Your Intuition

If you strongly believe and desire something, you might already have an idea of how to get there. Learn to trust your own instincts.

Deepstash helps you become inspired, wiser and productive, through bite-sized ideas from the best articles, books and videos out there.

Do a yearly review

Ask yourself:

  • What went well for me last year?

  • What did I remove from my life that is now making me happier?
  • What do I wish I had taken more time for?

Write your responses in a journal that you can refer back to in the future. Use these types of questions for areas like home, family, relationships, financial and career.

IDEAS

The silver bullet is that you need to put in the work everyday for years.

It’s not some Facebook ads hack. Or some magical $2000 conference.

But no matter how many times people tell you that, you’re still going to dig around for the secret answer.

Why?

Many people are afraid to live their dreams for fear of what others may think and say about them.

Making decisions based on what people think will debilitate you for the rest of your life.
