Successful People Do Not Entertain Self-Doubt!

Successful people hate risk as much as the average person, yet they deal with it!
It is important that you take risks. Calculated ones. It's like bravery — it's said to be the mastery of fear, not the absence of it!
It isn't that successful people do not possess self-doubt; they simply handle it better than most people.

Successful People Exercise On a Daily Basis!

Most professionally successful people are extremely busy from the time the sun rises to well after the sun sets, juggling new projects, daily affairs, and a variety of commitments.

Yet, they “always” find time in the day to exercise.

Successful People Rise Early In The Morning!

Take 100 millionaires from across the world and I'll bet you not one of them sleeps in!

The majority of these individuals are up at 6:00 or 7:00 a.m. slaving away while the rest of us are still eating pancakes!

If you want to have both the time and the energy to fit everything in which has to be accomplished in a successful individual's day, you should begin to rise earlier.

Get moving as early as possible.

Working Hard and Laughter are Not Mutually Exclusive!

Building on the previous point, I never understood why people feel that laughing means not taking the matter at hand seriously!

The best ideas come through ease.

The best flow happens in moments of joy.

The human connection begins with laughter and to laugh while working or solving a problem is to be open to new possibilities.

Some people never learn this — they become grumpy and old. But life is about having fun. And to have fun does not mean, by default, that you are not "getting anything done."

On the contrary; you can have fun and get more done than you ever thought imaginable.

Achievement Will Never Be As Fulfilling As The Journey!

It is one thing to set a goal and enlist the help of others to see its achievement through. It is entirely another to sacrifice your own well-being, and the well-being of those around you, for that goal and its achievement!!

The high at the end is never worth the emotional strain that takes place to get there!

If you are not able to enjoy the journey with those around you, then the end goal will become meaningless!!

Everyone Has Their Own Agenda!

This is quite a cliché phrase, and is often said in a negative context!

But I am using it differently: It is worth acknowledging that, at the end of the day, we all must provide for ourselves!

We all have our own dreams, goals, aspirations, families, close friends, and significant others; and we all want the same fundamental things.

There are those you can trust, of course, but the best way to keep yourself rooted and at ease is to know that each and every person has his or her own agenda.

You cannot control others. You cannot expect them to put you before themselves. And trying to do so may work for a period of time, but eventually, the truth will rise to the surface.

Instead, make it a point to address and help others move toward their own dreams, as you request their help in moving toward yours.

The relationship will more smoothly move in the right direction this way.
