One can’t be successful without first knowing who one is. Life will be much more easier for you if you know who you are, what you want, where you are going, and how to get there. You cannot achieve anything of value if you are not functioning at your highest level. You cannot achieve anything great if you are just passing time. If you pass time, time will pass you.

If you want to become the person that you have always wanted to be, you MUST master yourself. You must master your life. Here are some additional steps to take if you are to become who you want to be:

Be Yourself.

“Remember to always be yourself. Unless you suck.”– Joss Whedon, American producer

The first thing to do if you want to become who you want to be is to be yourself. Yourself, but nothing else. If you are not yourself, who are you? To be yourself, you MUST believe in yourself, trust yourself, love yourself, accept yourself, think for yourself, and celebrate yourself. Don’t compete with others; cooperate with others. If even you want to compete, let it be against yourself. Remember to always be yourself if you want to succeed.

Always prepare.

“Dig your well before you’re thirsty.“- Harvey Mackay

There is power in preparation. Always prepare yourself to succeed. Don’t underestimate anything. Always prepare yourself to seize anything opportunity. Don’t wait for people to tell you what to do. Do it before they even have the chance to tell you anything. The secret to success is preparation, preparation, preparation.

Don’t Resist Change.

“Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them- that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally toward in whatever way they like.”- Lao Tzu

Change is important to your growth and development. Don’t resist change. Allow things to flow. Allow things to happen the way it ought to be, not the way you want it to be. Change is a way to learn, to understand yourself, to know others, to think in different ways, to get out of comfort zone. If you don’t understand why change is been proposed, don’t resist it. Find a way to understand why the change is been proposed. Change is not funny, so is status quo. If you want your life to change, embrace change. Don’t resist it. In the words of JIm Rohn, “Your life does not get better by chance, it gets better by change.”

Discipline Yourself.

“It is the small disciplines that lead to great accomplishments.”- Jim Rohn

There is no success without discipline. If you want to become who you want to be, you must discipline yourself. Do the things that are important to you. Don’t spend your time on things that are not getting you any closer to your dreams. For example, if you have an important project to work on, instead of watching the TV, spend time on your project. You can watch your TV later. In other words, according Stephen Covey, “Do the first thing first.” Focus on what will make you a better, smarter person.

Take Risks.

“If you have everything under control, you are not moving fast enough.”– Mario Andretti, Race Car Driver

If you have everything under control in your life, it means you are not moving fast enough. It means you are not taking calculated risks. It means you are playing it too safe. It is okay to play it safe, but know when to say, ‘enough is enough.’ If you want to take risks, make sure that the risks are worth taking. Make sure they are going to help you become a better person. Don’t take risks because people pressured you to do so. Take risks because you know is the right thing to do. Remember to look before you jump. Don’t jump before you look.

Failure is Inevitable.

“Failure is inevitable, make it a strength.”- J.K. Rowling

Failure is a part of life. It is a part of the game of life. If you want to move forward, if you want to learn, if you want to be a better person, you MUST embrace failure. It is okay to failure, but don’t make it a habit. If you fail at something, don’t beat yourself up. Listen to yourself. Learn from failure, and move on. Michael Jordan said, “I can accept failure, everyone fail at something. But I can’t accept not trying.” Failure is not a crime, not trying is. If you want to be better than you are today, don’t let the fear of failure stops you from pursuing your purpose in life.

The road to success is not easy. For that reason, we need inspirational quotes that will help us prepare for the journey to success. Hope the following quotes will do just that for you and the people around you.

“Winners are losers who got up and gave it one more try.”- Dennis de Young

When you see successful people, don’t envy them. They were once called names. They changed their lives by getting up and give it one more try. Whatever you are going through right now, it is not the end of the road. It is the beginning of your success. Give it one more try. Give it one push, and I bet you will succeed.

“Being aware of your fear is smart, overcoming it is the mark of a successful person.”- Seth Godin

To be successful in life, in your business, in whatever you do, you MUST first learn how to cope with fear. Fear is real. It is not what you can just push aside. It is the first thing to enter your mind when you are planning new thing. Fear is the first thing to tell you ‘what you are planning is not going to work.’ But don’t let fear stop you from pursuing your dream. It is good to recognize that fear is there, but overcoming it is more powerful.

“The great secret of getting what you want from life is to know what you want and believe you can have it.”- Norman Vincent Pearle

To be successful in life, you need more than just a high IQ. You need more than that. You need a positive attitude. You have to know what you and how to get it. You have to believe in yourself that everything is possible. Everything starts with self-belief. If you believe in yourself, people will believe in you. But if you doubt yourself, people will doubt you. You can’t fake it. Believe you can, and you will.

“It’s what it is. But, It will be what you make it.”- Pat Summitt, coach

No one is in control of your life, but you. No one is your master; you are your own master. You are living a great life if you are the one managing your life. If you allow people to manage your life for you, will never be satisfied with what you get. They will give you what they think that you worth. But the question is: “Is that what you really worth?” If you want to be happier, healthier, and wealthier, don,t let anyone be your master. Be your OWN master.
