1.Never Give Up. Do not settle for remaining in your comfort zone. Remaining complacent is a good way to get nowhere.
Escape your comfort zone, it is keeping you away from success.
Success dislikes familiarity. Comfort zone equals familiarity.
Doing the same thing is going to get you the same result.
If you desire more, change your approach.
Live at the edge of your feet. Look over the cliff with boldness.
Put your back up against the wall and have faith in yourself that you will overcome the challenge at hand.
There are so many stories about people who put their balls on the line, quit their job, and found a way to the promise land.
Something special happens when you put your back up against the wall.
Something special happens when it is do or die.
So become the aggressor, jump into the ocean, and never quit until success is in your hands.
Fuck complacency…leave that to the pussies.
►2. Be passionate! If you love what you’re doing, it will never seem like work.
Without passion, you will quit when shit gets hard.
If you don’t love it, don’t do it.
If you despise your work and it pisses you the fuck off, you will never become successful.
►3. Be focused! Ask yourself: What should I be thinking about right now? Shut out interference. In this age of multitasking, this is a valuable technique to acquire.
Attack life like a viscous pit bull who hasn’t eaten in days.
Use single eye focus.
Look to one dream, one goal, one ambition at a time. The person who tries to achieve all, conquers none.
►4. Keep your momentum! Listen, apply and move forward. Do not procrastinate.
Success is a game. Just like in any other game, momentum is key. Once you taste the first spoonful of success, leverage it. Don’t look backwards. Keep progressing forward and keep knocking shit off your to-do list.
Whatever you do, don’t let the voice inside your head kill your momentum.
Procrastination is the devil and must be terminated on sight.
►5. See yourself as victorious! That will focus you in the right direction.
You’re not going to amount to shit if you’re constantly feeling sorry for yourself.
Success demands confidence.
So lift your head to the sky, stick your chest out, and face life eye to eye.
You were born to win. Don’t forget it.
A rule of thumb to follow when you are down and out is to ask yourself, “How would a victor handle this situation?” After you arrive at your answer, do that shit.
6. Be tenacious! Being stubborn can work wonders.
Once you set your eyes on a prize, don’t back down.
Let life do what it may, but you must not quiver, you must not shake, and you must not surrender.
Remain stubborn and persistent.
7. Be lucky! The old saying, “The harder I work, the luckier I get” is absolutely right on.
Action breeds luck.
The reason people acquire luck is because they took some form of action. You’re not going to get lucky by watching Game of Thrones all fucking day.
8. Believe in yourself! If you don’t, no one else will either. Think of yourself as a one-man or one-woman army.
You were born alone and you are going to die alone. Success is on your shoulders. You are your own army. Lead yourself to victory.
9. Ask yourself: What am I pretending not to see? There may be some great opportunities right around you, even if things aren’t looking so great. Great adversity can turn into great victory.
The universe works in strange ways.
Opportunities don’t come gift wrapped. Opportunities are not going to knock on your door and say, “Hey dude! I’m an opportunity. You should exploit me.”
10. Look at the solution, not the problem. And never give up! Never never never give up. This thought deserves to be said (and remembered and applied) many times. It’s that important.
There is always a way out.
There is always a solution.
There is always victory to be found in misery.
