How do you invite something new into your life? Good question, right?
We all need something new in our lives. We need to renew our minds every day. If you want something great, you have to think about great things. If you want to be great in life, you have to do great things. You cannot be great if you keep doing small things.You can only be great if you do small things in great ways. You cannot be great if you keep thinking small thinking. You cannot be great if you spend your time doing urgent things, instead of doing important things.
If you want new things, you have to stop doing old things. As Peter Drucker put it, “If you want something new, you have to stop doing something old.” If you want to be creative, you have to stop doing old things. You have to start doing new things. You have to start experimenting with strange things. You have to get out of your comfort zone. You have to start breathing in new oxygen into your life.
If you want something new, stop doing the old, unproductive things.
We all want to be successful, but only a few will be successful. If you want to be among those who will be successful, you should be ready to make yourself uncomfortable. You are going to be ready to make yourself uncomfortable because you need the right environment to succeed. Without the right environment, you will be successful, but it will take longer to do.
If you want to succeed, you must create the right environment for yourself to grow. The right people. The right mentors. The right minds. If you surround yourself with people who are not wishing you well, you have lots of work to do. If you need to grow badly, you need to let them go. Don’t let people pull you back. You need to be around people who will push you to succeed, not those who will pull you to stay where you are. You need doers around you. You need like-minded people around you. They will push you to try new things.
Mark Twain said, “Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.”
Yes, if you want to grow and do great things, you need to stay away from small-minded people. You need to stay away from little people. If not, you will be like them.
