The path to success is a tough path but with discipline, it can definitely be achieved.
You’ve probably heard of many success lessons that guarantee to improve your lifestyle but in the end, you forget about them or they usually don’t work. Let’s admit it, we all have a different life and everyone goes through stuff that cannot be applied to everyone. But there are certain factors that everyone can apply in their lives. Improve yourself and be a successful person using these disciplinary methods.
1. Take ownership and don’t give a sh*t about others opinions.
First off, keep in mind unimaginable happiness comes from a self-belief that is not influenced by others remarks of you. These ordinary people have no goals in their lives and probably have settled for what they have.
I don’t give a crap what people think about me or about my decisions. Although it’s important what my inner circle thinks of me(mentors, masterminds, geniuses) however it’s rather annoying when someone whos not close to me try to impose their beliefs on me and draw conclusions based on decisions and my life. Stop caring about these people, they don’t matter. When you get old you’ll be surprised at how little you care, bring that mindset right now and flourish.
Second, be legitimate. I don’t establish a decent first connection with most of the people but that’s not really an issue. However, it’s equally important to be a humble person that will allow you to look at things in a bright light.
No matter how small you think you are in your life, how big you are, in terms of your personal matters or business relations, always be authentic, it’s who you are. Bring that unique identity of yours into play in your daily life and notice the difference by how everyone treats you.
2. Invest in personal growth.
Albert Einstein once said, “Intellectual growth should commence at birth and cease only at death.” Henry Ford said, “Anyone who stops learning is old. Anyone who keeps learning stays young.” And my message is that you can’t grow a business past your own personal growth.
Look for some mentors. Sit with masterminds. Dig out your weaknesses into others and face them like a brave man rather than hiding from them, because we’re usually blind to our bad sides. For Eg, when I started making money, I bought a Rolex and thinking I was so smart than everyone else. That mentality was stupid and held me back.
Work on your personal growth as an opportunity to fix what’s broken and damaged within you. By doing this you will not only increase your confidence but also flourish in other prospects in your life.
3. Learn or retire. Choose one
Many of us have this mindset that once we’ve left out school or college, we’re done with the process of learning. That is absolutely wrong. You must remain a student until the day you are buried in your grave. You must create your own syllabus for what you will learn next. What is the one thing you wanted to learn but couldn’t? Have an interest in cars? Learn about them.
Have you ever wished you could read every book in the library? Use that instinct to pick a new topic you know little about or something you want to know more about, and be your own guide/instructor. Do your homework, which sounds like a terrible word, but not when you’re giving it to yourself. You can always be learning. If you’re not, your desire for curiosity has been damaged.
If you’re no longer even a little bit curious about the world or the things you don’t know well, I hope you have the means to retire at a young age because you don’t have the means to be successful.
