Keep Reminding Yourself

We're forgetful beings. So you need to keep reminding yourself what you already have in life, what you want and what your life goal is, and to stay on track.

Staying in shape

Instead of periodically being fit when the situation demands, go for Gold, and always stay in shape, agile and strong, ready to take on anything.

Showing up

Be the one who doesn't hide, doesn't fear all the things that life has to offer: bad people, bad weather, pressure, or pain.

Taste life to the fullest.

Taking rest

Don't be ashamed to rest. You need to recover your energy, and for that, you need to schedule rest as an important activity.

Quitting

Quit the things that are not working out for you. It is no use hanging on to something which is not of use.

Fail fast and come out stronger with a better solution to succeed.

The uncommon path

Instead of taking the common path, make your own path. Don't be a follower. When you originate something, be unique in your actions. 

Pessimists

You will find pessimists everywhere, even in well-meaning family and friends. They don't know any better. Ignore them selectively. A pessimist is not necessarily a bad person.

Showing initiative

Be an originator of the action, of new ideas and be the first to start something new.

Set an example. No matter what it is, be the first one who does something.

Act on it

You can't just think good thoughts and assume your life will be better. 

We can't just think something. We need to act on it.

A few examples of how we extrapolate our exceptions all the time:

  • “House prices will probably keep increasing.”
  • “That person will never change.”
  • “My business will keep growing.”
  • “I will never learn from my mistakes.”
  • “He doesn’t like me.”

The root of this problem is our quick judgment.
