Success, easy to wish for, hard to work for, we want a lot of things, and we're proud of this, but what we don't want to admit is that we're not able to make the sacrifice for what we want, we're so comfortable in our comfort zone, we're so satisfied with being lazy that we refuse to take the action on our dreams, but dreams won't achieve itself, you're the one who's going to get up and make it happen, below are some fundamental rules to help to find success:
1- Figure out what gets you closer to your dream and do it:
Choose right and make sure that what you're doing now is getting you closer to your dreams, we build our future with what we do now, not what we say we'll do tomorrow; your daily routine, your habits, that's what decide how your life will look like in few years from now, you got to understand that your time is the precisest thing you have, because money comes and goes, time only goes. Focus on your dreams, and let your days get you closer to them!
2- Focus on what matters:
I've learned that you can't do everything at the same time, even if you think you can and you did believe in it! if you want to excel in something you need to focus on it, I used to think that I can handle my studies and my passion to blog, but slowly I was driven to spend much time on blog and I started to give up on studies!! because it's not really about the time, but it's about your passion, when you're doing something you don't love, don't expect much! the more you'll have priorities, the less you can focus on what matters, the less you'll excel in it!
3- Your comfort zone should be something from the past:
You have to be in a place where you're comfortable with being uncomfortable!! even if it was easy for you to stay in a peace, you should know that nothing great grows in your comfort zone, no one looks back and remembers the nights where he had a nice, long sleep, but certainly he remembers the days that were full of challenges.
4- Change may not be what you want, but it's exactly what you need:
Figure out the bad habits you need to change then visualize the process to make that change; write it down and remind yourself every morning to be better than yesterday! Don't be afraid of change, be afraid of staying the same.
5- You can't have success with hands in the pocket:
Dare to start and take the action! never let excuses, people or laziness to hold you back. if you want something go and get it, no matter how crazy it would seem to people, the right things would come from your heart, your passion and not from the logic.
6- Success isn't about how hard you hit:
It's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving, how much you can take, You need to know that pain is temporary no matter how long it's going to last unless you quit, then it's going to last forever!
7- Be patient:
Even if you can't see the results right now, keep faith that it will happen, because it's all about practicing, the more you practice the better you get at doing it, and for that we need constant motivation, we need to remind ourselves with all the decisions that we took to achieve our dreams.
8- Never compare yourself to others:
They might be at the middle and you're just at the beginning! This beginning is the hardest and there's where the most of your energy and effort is required, then with practice everything is going to become easier and it's going to get faster, be patient with your beginning! and rather than comparing yourself to others, try to compare yourself to your old self, the one you were yesterday! aren't you better than yesterday!! that's what you got to focus on, improvement! being better than the day before.
9- Don't give up:
Sometimes you win, sometimes you learn and pain doesn't just show up in our lives for no reason, it's a sign that something in our lives needs to change, it's not the dream that needs to change, it's your method, understand that every single thing that has ever happened to you is preparing you for a moment that is yet to come, so don't be afraid to start over because it's a way to start more wisely.
If you dare to wish for it, then dare to work for it.
