“Everything that lives has the power to become greater.” – J. Lyman MacINNis
“We don’t stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.”– George Bernard Shaw, playwright
There is nothing you cannot achieve in life if you believe you can. In order to that, you should work very hard to have a renewed mind. Progress starts in your mind. If your mind is clean, healthy, there is nothing you cannot achieve. As James Allen once said, “A positive mind will produce positive results. A negative mind will produce negative results.”
You are never too old to accomplish your dreams. You are never too old to set a new goal for yourself. You are never too old to adapt a new positive lifestyle. You are never too old to drop your negative mindset that has been holding you back. You are never too old to start dreaming bigger dreams. You can do it if you want to.
Associate yourself with doers, not talkers. Associate yourself with people who are getting things done, no matter how difficult the process may be. Don’t hang around negative people. If you do, before long, your mind will be a mess.
Life is all about living and dreaming. If you stop dreaming, you will stop creating new things. If you stop renewing your mind, your mind will be flooded with negative things. Make sure you work hard to protect your mind. It is all you have. A weak mind is a weak person. A strong mind is a strong person.
Successful people know what unsuccessful people don’t know.
In the words of Colin Powell, “There are no secrets to success. It is a result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure.”
Success is not about material possessions. Success is about you and how you conduct yourself. How you do your daily business. What is success to you is not success to the next guy.
Success comes to those who attract it. If you
attract success, if you do the right things, if you work hard, success will
visit you, too.
The question here is: “Why are some people
“Why are others not so successful?” What are the
Is there any secret to success? If there is, how
can we find it?
What is it that the successful people know that the rest of us are missing? What did they do that made them super successful?
Are they doing what the rest of us are doing? Or,
Are they doing something differently that the rest
of us are not paying attention to?
Let us look at some of the things that successful
people are doing right that the rest of us are missing.
people are courageous.
Successful people are courageous people. They are scared of the unknown, but they never stop pursuing their dreams. They don’t allow fear to stop them from achieving their dreams. They know that without courage, nothing will happen. They look fear in the eye and keep going. They never stop moving.
“Without courage, wisdom bears no fruit.”- Baltasar Gracian
people embrace mistakes.
Successful people know that without mistakes they are not going anywhere. When you make mistakes, it shows you are learning. It shows you are progressing. It shows you are doing the right thing. Don’t be scared to make mistakes. It is part of your journey to success. Embrace it. Learn from it. Move on.
“To make no mistakes is not in the power of man; but from their errors and mistakes the wise and good learn wisdom for the future.”– Plutarch, Greek Roman biographer
people know what they want.
Successful people know what they want and how to get it. It is easier to succeed if you know what you want. If you know what you want to achieve in life, it is easier for you to go about achieving it. But if you don’t know, you won’t know how to get it. Know what you want, assess the situation, plan, take action, and measure your progress. If you don’t like your results, change what you are doing.
“If one does not know to which port one is sailing, no wind is favorable.”– Seneca The Younger
people trust themselves.
Successful people trust themselves, even when they don’t know what they are doing. They believe in themselves. They believe in what they are doing. Success starts with self-belief. If you want to be successful, YOU MUST BELIEVE IN YOURSELF. Self-belief gives you courage, confidence, hope, and determination to pursue your dream. You must believe in yourself if you are to succeed. If you don’t believe in yourself, no one will believe in you. No matter what you are going through, don’t make excuses, just believe in yourself, and you will be a victor.
“Trust in what you do, continue to do it, and it will take you where you need to go.”- Natalie Goldberg, Zen practitioner
To be successful, you must do the right thing. You
must work hard and smart. You must look fear in the eye and say, “I am a
