… is in the dictionary.
Have you ever thought for a moment that there really is a shortcut to success without having to put any effort in it?
Change your life-style mindset and change your thoughts.
Here are some ideas I gathered over time from those “Success books” I read for you to ponder:
The components of success are the small choices made every day. We are all given the same 24 hours in a day. How we utilize them is key.
- Get up early, eat healthy, keep fit, and stimulate your brain.
- Be a friend.
- Act like your success is your responsibility. Take more care of your own business.
- Make better choices and don’t get mislead by biases.
- Work on your (written) goals.
- Learn something new every day.
- Help people around you. They will remember and that creates opportunity and people will be more willing to help you when you need help.
- Learn to invest for the future.
- Try things outside your usual experiences.
- Make more eye contact and smile more frequently.
- Be the best at what you do, so that you can get a promotion. Smart work and thought gets you rich.
- Practice delayed gratification.
- Luck is when opportunity meets preparedness. Are you prepared enough?
You can be the hardest worker in the world and not be wealthy.
You can also be the smartest person in the world and not be wealthy.
You couldn’t care less about (monetary) wealth and consider yourself wealthy.
But if wealth is one of your goals and you have a habit of continuously improving towards a goal you’ve set, not only will you work harder for that goal, you will work smarter.
Because when the desire is great enough, you’ll find a way, but when it’s not, you’ll find an excuse. You can either have success or you can have excuses, but you can’t have both!
