Rabindranath Tagore said, “You can’t cross the sea merely by standing and staring at the water.”
“Every man has his own destiny: the only imperative is to follow it, to accept it, no matter where it leads.”- Henry Miller, writer
“Change your thoughts and you change your destiny.”– Dr. Joseph Murphy
In order to change your life, you have to first change how you view the world around you. If you don’t change how you see things, the things you want to change will not change.
You can change what is not working for you by taking positive actions. Only actions can change your life. You can plan, talk, dream all you want, but if you don’t support your dream with actions, it will remain a dream.
You can change your life by taking positive actions. You can start by taking small actions. The things that you do today will create your destiny. Small actions, if you practice them every day, will determine your destiny.
James Allen said, “A man is literally what he thinks, his character being the complete sum of all his thoughts.” If you want a great life, think great thoughts. If you want to be healthy, wealthy, happy, and successful, flood your mind with positive thoughts.
“To see far is one thing, going there is another.”– Constantin Brancusi
Many people say what they want to do, but they never follow through. A dream is just a dream until you make it happen. Many people can dream, but only a few can make their dreams happen.
People don’t take action because they are scared. They have a perfect plan, but they never follow through. Research shows that most people are poor because they never follow through with their plans. If you want to succeed, stop talking and start doing.
You can dream all you want. But If you don’t support your dream with actions, you will never succeed.
Doing something the first time is scary, but if you follow through with your plan, you will succeed. No matter how hard, don’t give up. Never give up!
People fail because they don’t take action. People fail because they don’t leave their comfort zones. People fail because they procrastinate. People fail because they don’t change. If you don’t change, you cannot grow. There is no growth without a change. If you want to grow, you must embrace change.
You never know what you can do until you try it. It is only action that can make your dreams come true. Grace Cirocco says, “Only action makes faith real.” Only action makes your life real. Only action can change your life, nothing else.
You cannot succeed in fighting your fear if you keep running away from what you fear. If you want to succeed, you must first fight what you fear. You must first “trample your fear beneath your feet.”
Nadia Comaneci said, “I don’t run away from a challenge because I am afraid, I run toward it because the only to escape fear is to trample it beneath your feet.” Success is not without challenges. If you want to succeed, you must embrace your fear. You must fight your fear by doing what you are scared of. Don’t let what you are scared of stop you from achieving your dreams.
Fear is real. But if you want to move forward in life, you must conquer your fear. It is not going to be easy, but it is doable. Remember, if you fear something, that thing is worth pursuing. Successful people face their fears, and their fears disappear. If you have the gut to face your fear, you can achieve anything you want in life. You can live the life you are created to live.
Take care of your fear, and your fear will leave you alone.
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
