Key Ideas

Focus

The right frame of mind, and thinking about positive things to happen goes a long way to improving your life. Focus on what you want.

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. 

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.

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. 

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Self Control and Eating Healthy

While it’s obvious we need to exhibit a certain amount of self-control while choosing what we put in our bodies, that is not the whole story.

If we educate our bodies and learn about nutrition, longevity and how our individual bodies function, we could be eating a lot healthier.

The Pleasures Of Life

There is a lot of stuff available for us to do that makes us feel better instantly. Watching TV, going to the beach, drinking alcohol, smoking, and almost every other activity that seems pleasurable to us, giving us temporary pleasure in a jiffy. When we keep doing that, the long term effects are bad, and we feel older, weaker, sicker, while not having any achievement in our lives.

This is a natural process of a slow movement towards disorder, is also the second law of thermodynamics, called Entropy.

Don’t Think You Know Everything

Understand that life is not about impressing others with what you know. It’s about fulfillment, collaboration, and the common good.

If you want to achieve those thing...

Never Blame People For Your Unhappiness

As a child, you’re taken care of by others. Hence, you assume that someone is responsible for you.

When you grow up, you are responsible for you. So never look at others when you’re unhappy. Instead, accept your unhappiness, and then do something about it.

Stop Wasting Time On Losers

There’s a big chance the people in your environment don’t strive for the same things as you. Many people live a timid life. People who don’t want anything from life and who spend their time watching tv.

Don’t give your time to those people. You might become one of them.

Habits and success

Habits change your life, but they don't guarantee success.

Waking up early, working hard, and taking cold showers do not cause success. They contribute to it, but they may be insuffici...

Decide what habits are worth it

It's up to you to define what a good habit is. This critical to forming new habits. 

To find your why, your reason to change, just ask yourself this: “Will habit x improve the quality of my life?”  Answer that. And then, adopt habits that bring you closer to the things you want in life.

Focus on one habit at a time

We overestimate ourselves most of the time. And that's one of the reasons we try to do so many things at the same time, in a short period.

We can achieve a lot over a long period. So focus on one thing at a time. Stack one habit on top of the other, one by one.
