There are universal ingredients which will make you successful.
1. Have a Health Lifestyle
“Take care of your body. It’s the only body have”— Dr Robyn Kaye
If you want to achieve anything in life, everything starts here. First, you should take care of your health, and there are only three things you need to keep in mind:
Small steps, but you will thank yourself one day.
2. Have a long term Mindset
“You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.” — Mae West
Successful people set long-term goals, and they know these aims are merely the result of short-term habits that they need to do every day.
These healthy habits shouldn’t be something you do; they should be something you embody.
There is a difference between: “Working out to get a summer body” and“Working out because that’s who you are.”
3. Give Up On Playing Small
Paul Allen who died yesterday didn’t say that he wanted to become rich with Bill agates. They say in the garage and said they wanted to put a computer on every human’s desk on the planet – vale Paul!
If you never try and take great opportunities or allow your dreams to become realities, you will never unleash your true potential.
And the world will never benefit from what you could have achieved.
voice your ideas,
don’t be afraid to fail,
don’t be afraid to succeed.
4. Give Up Your Excuses
“It’s not about the cards you’re dealt, but how you play the hand.” ― Randy Pausch, The Last Lecture
Successful people know that they are responsible for their life, no matter their starting point, weaknesses, and past failures.
Realising that you are responsible for what happens next in your life is both frightening and exciting.
And when you do, that becomes the only way you can become successful, because excuses limit and prevent us from growing personally and professionally.
Own your life; no one else will.
5. Give Up The Fixed Mindset
“The future belongs to those who learn collaborate and grow .” ― Geoff Hirsh – Co-founder Business Builders Group
People with a fixed mindset think their intelligence or talents are pre-determined traits that cannot be changed. They also believe that talent alone leads to success — without hard work.
But they’re wrong.
Successful people know this. They invest an immense amount of time on a daily basis to develop a growth mindset, acquire new knowledge, learn new skills and change their perception so that it can benefit their lives.
Who you are today is not who you have to be tomorrow.
6. Give Up Believing in the “Magic Bullet.”
“It’s the little things that make a difference – it’s the Piwer of Small ” — Paul Dunn B1G1
Overnight success is a myth.
Successful people know that making small continuous improvement every day will be compounded over time and give them desired results.
That is why you should plan for the future, but focus on the day that’s ahead of you, and improve just 1% every day.
7. Give Up Your Perfectionism
“Doing beats perfection – Take Action with knowledge.” — Maurice Goldberg – artist and Entrepreneur
Nothing will ever be perfect, no matter how much you try.
Fear of failure (or even fear of success) often prevents you from taking action and putting your creation out there in the world. But a lot of opportunities will be lost if you wait for things to be right.
So “take action,” and then improve
8. Give Up Multi-tasking
“Most of the time multitasking is an illusion. You think you are multitasking, but in reality, you are actually wasting time switching from one task to another – You can only do one thing at a time “
— Bosco Tjan
Successful people know this.
That’s why they choose one thing and then nail it.
No matter what it is — a business idea, a conversation, or a workout.
Being fully present and committed to one task is the bomb!
(If only – I am an inveterate polymath)
9. Give Up Your Need to Control Everything
“Find yourself a brilliant team and empower them . Steve Jobs asked the question – Why employ someone better than yourself and tell them what to do
Often the only thing you will be able to control is your attitude towards something.
“Remember – even if you’re angry – be nice” (MD Ahad )
10. Say No To Things That Don’t Support Your Goals
In order to accomplish their goals, succesful people will have to say NO to certain tasks, activities, and demands from their friends, family, and colleagues.
11. Give Up The Toxic People
“Stay away from negative people. They have a problem for every solution.”
— Albert Einstein
These people are the Cynics – many of whom are jeolous – and often have no knowledge, don’t take action and are frustrated.
Not sure who said that you will become the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with.
If you spend time with those who refuse to take responsibility for their life, always find excuses and blame others for the situation they are in, your average will go down, and with it your opportunity to succeed.
However, if you spend time with people who are trying to increase their standard of living, and grow personally and professionally, your average will go up, and you will become more successful.
Take a look at around you, and see if you need to make any changes.
12. Give Up Your Need To Be Liked
“You can be the juiciest, ripest peach in the world, and there’s still going to be people who hate peaches.” — Dita Von Teese
Even the most popular President is hated by some… they only need 51% to rule – Ron Lee – the King Fu Comedian
Think of yourself as a market niche.
There will be a lot of people who like that niche, and there will be many who don’t. And no matter what you do, you won’t be able to make the entire market like you.
This is completely natural, and there’s no need to justify yourself.
Be authentic, improve and provide value every day, and know that the growing number of “haters” means that you are doing remarkable things.
13. Give Up Wasting Time
You only have one crazy and precious life on this planet. . Make the best of it for you. Be who you want to be.
However, to do that, you need to ditch meaningless time wasters and stop procrastinating!
To do that, you should learn how to take control over your focus, attention and make the most out of your day.
Never stop creating your legacy and those that you know like and trust, and doing the things that will enrich their lives and in turn yours!
