Focus on doing something you love.
When you’ve found what you’re passionate about, you get the motivation to keep you moving.
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.
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.”
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.
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.
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.
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.
When surrounded by doubts, giving up can actually seem like a good idea. Don't let those thoughts discourage you.
You’ll never become successful if you don’t work towards your goal in life. True success comes from hard work.
If you strongly believe and desire something, you might already have an idea of how to get there. Learn to trust your own instincts.
Which of your projects, errands and general to-do items do you still have left from the previous year that you may be able to complete in less than 2 hours? Do them now to enable you to give yourself a fresh start.
‘My goal is to make a ton of money.’
And you’re wondering why you still haven’t made it.
Your goal isn’t actionable.
And quite frankly it isn’t that motivating either.
We need to have more faith in our decision-making ability.
Find out who you are and what fits your style. Often, you'll have to start by finding out who you aren't. Trust your gut and know that you're making the right decision.
