Too many people complain about their lives.
They hate their jobs, don’t respect their social circle, and waste their valuable time on useless activities.
If you aren’t satisfied with your self, you need to take a time out and re-evaluate where you’re headed.
To Choose The Right Priorities In Life, You Have To Develop Clear Values
Society conditions you to follow a certain path.
Do you really want to live how people expect you to?
It can be a tremendous struggle changing your mindset into that of a hustler/entrepreneur. Conventional advice is often complete garbage because it encourages mediocrity.
Always be mindful about where you get your information.
Is that person successful? Does that person have what you want to achieve?
Take everything with a grain of salt.
You’re The Sum Of The 5 People You Spend The Most Time With, So Choose Those People Wisely
I’m not blaming failures on other people, I’m simply pointing out that attitudes rub off.
Your life is completely under your control.
No man is an island – the right people will help you realize your plans.
Instead Of Wasting Your Attention With Time-Sinks, You Should Re-Invest It Into Your Hustles
People always complain that they don’t have enough time – the truth is, they enjoy spending it on mindless activities.
If you really want something, you need to put forth the effort.
Read books that stimulate your mind, work out hard, and hang out with like-minded people.
Life’s too precious to waste on things that don’t benefit you. Every single day should be a push towards improvement.
No one can force you to hustle. You have to find the inspiration within yourself.
Do you want money? Do you want women? Do you want to be in shape?
If You Ain’t Dream-Livin Then You Dream Wrong
Appearances typically reflect what’s on the inside.
When you see a sharp-dressed man who is in shape and walks with purpose, you know that he has invested in himself. This is the kind of man who demands respect.
When you value your life, taking care of yourself is the only priority. Sure, you could eat cheetos and play xbox all day – but you have so much more potential than that.
I find it crucial to enjoy the struggle. Pain only hurts if you let it get to you.
Think about pain as your weaknesses being destroyed. Pushing yourself feels good.
When you reach a certain level, stagnation makes you restless.
Life is a fun game that is all about moving forward.
Embrace The New Versions Of Yourself That Emerge
On The Horizon
You grow out of identities faster than you realize. It can feel awkward stepping into strange new realities. With time, you’ll feel more comfortable.
Life is built up through layering.
Think about the process of making a candle. A string is dipped into a bowl of hot wax. The wax dries, adding a hardened layer around the string. As the process is repeated, the wax builds up and turns into a candle.
Money Flows To People With Attitudes That Demand It
Most people are subservient and eager to take orders from others. Not everyone will be able to find that inner fire to make something of themselves. People think that a mediocre life gives them comfort and stability.
What if everything suddenly goes to shit? Where will you be then?
It’s foolish to navigate life’s turbulent waters without a life-jacket or swimming lessons.
You don’t need to be on the grind 24/7 as long as you weigh your decisions through the lens of a general cost/benefit analysis.
The most important question to ask yourself is: “Will this add value to my life?”
Focus on the big picture while putting 100% effort into the smallest tasks.
Your work is a reflection of your dedication and effort.
People Make Excuses Because They’re Afraid Of Success
Failure can be comforting because change is inherently uncomfortable.
It can be intensely overwhelming when all your dreams start to come true. Sometimes, you’ll find that the lifestyle you envisioned isn’t for you. If that is the case, divert your progress and attention into other mediums.
Success comes naturally when you’re completely dedicated to (or obsessed with) your pursuits.
The morbidly obese couch potato is just as dedicated to his lifestyle as the successful entrepreneur. The big difference is where they direct their effort.
