I would always daydream about appearance, luxury, a perfect guy, a perfect life.. and I tried to convince myself that it's silly, life isn't about appearance, until my friend asked me what do I daydream about most of times, I said success! yeah when I daydream about appearance, I would be successful so I'll have it all! that was great for me as a goal, to be successful, money would come next as a consequence! and it's not about money but it's about the fun you're having while you're making money, when you do something you're passionate about, something you wouldn't think of having a vacation from, that's what would give your life a meaning.
So what leads to success?
There are 8 principles that lead to success
Doing something you love, something you're passionate about, something you won't give up on! success isn't really about money, it's rather about enjoying doing what you love, it's the value you add to the world, the changes you've been through, the person you've became from all the challenges and struggles you've been through.
You can't reach success with hands in your pockets, you need to work hard, but since you're doing something you love, then you'll have fun, you won't need any vacations, or days off!
3- Be good at it:
And that comes with practicing it. The more you practice, the easier it becomes.
Focus on your work not on money, money will come as a consequence!
You need to push yourself to work hard, to give up shyness and to show up, you need to push yourself to give up self-doubt, because nothing can kill creativity as much as doubting yourself would do.
when you work on dreams, sometimes you may feel not in mood to work on it, not because you don't love it anymore, but because you need some motivation, you should not wait to find the motivation to work again, make your own by yourself, set some goals with deadlines, make it as an obligation even if you were free to work whenever you want and as much as you want, your future self will thank you for it.
Your success is all about that value that you're going to add to the people, serve a value! be a problem solver!
You need to be creative, start where others finished and do better, don't start from the zero. Being able to generate ideas, is actually a talent, yet you still need to parctice it. Most of the ideas comes from problems, only when you feel the need to solve a problem that you can find an idea!
When you create something from nothing you need to be patient, in the beginning when you can't see any results to keep your motivation for working and putting in the effort, there when you need to push yourself to keep going, I know it's hard to wake up in the morning, and you can't find the motivation to leave your bed, but even so be excited because you're doing what you love, not everyone would have the opportunity to work on what they love, most of people go to jobs they don't like and live a life they don't like, you're doing what you love, right? so why to wait results, why to not just enjoy every single minute you're working on your passion!!
Failure is not falling down, but refusing to get up. - Chinese proverb
You don't need to win, you just need to do your best and to enjoy, it's not about the success itself as much as it's about enjoying the process, that's what matters, and while getting there you'll find out that the person you've became that what did worth it, the strength you get from all these hard times you've been through, the changes you've made,...
