Work on yourself daily and grow.
Life isn’t all about work, especially if it doesn’t bring you happiness. We listen to the many advice people have to say to us when they themselves have no idea what they are talking about, and it throws us off course.
No matter your age, it’s not too late to learn these 7 important lessons that many people miss to help them reach success.
Life is too short
We don’t know how long we have on earth, but we do things that limit us from growing, keeps us in the shadows and makes us unhappy.
If you don’t know when your time will come, why waste it doing something you don’t like. If you are going to be miserable, you might as well be miserable doing something you enjoy. Don’t burn time in a job that does nothing but hinders you.
I always feared that if I didn’t quit my previous job, that I’d die of a heart attack or my depression would kill me. I have to say, it got pretty close to that. Don’t try and do what many people do. Tell themselves that they can take it and force themselves to be there.
Do something you like, find the right people to be around and ditch the ones that bring you nothing but pain.
Giving up health for wealth
If you are giving up health for wealth then you are giving up life. What’s the point in becoming a millionaire if you have but a little bit of time to enjoy it? you can’t use the money you made because your spending the rest of your life in a hospital bed.
Work hard, but don’t overdo it. 20 hours of work is worthless and I’m telling you that from experience. Work hard, but don’t stress. Stress kills, better you keep your sanity then to be burdened with a mental illness such as dementia, or depression.
Health comes before wealth. If you have health you are richer than the man with millions who doesn’t have it.
Failure is a sign of success
Develop the mental strength it takes to accomplish what you want in life. Failure is not an end. Failure is the start.
The only people that haven’t failed, are those that don’t do much. Failure is the greatest teacher provided by life. You can use the lessons it teaches you and keep moving forward, or ignore them and quit, but no matter what you want in life, if you don’t try you will not succeed.
Continue to better yourself
Honestly, people don’t read, they don’t take risk or try and learn a new skill.
What you don’t use you lose. You don’t use your brain it will slowly decompose, and shrink. life is about growing. Even if you are not reading on success, you should at least keep up with the times and maybe learn something new, or teach someone something new.
You have an addiction you won’t admit
Can you go a week without your phone, or spend less time on it? People will tell you “No, I can’t live without it,” but last I checked you weren’t born with it.
Staying glued in front of the TV will not make you happy, nor will it teach you the necessary lessons you need to learn in life. Spend some time with friends, read a book or do something that is better for your health and for your future.
Phones, tablets, and TVs are an addiction that you won’t admit you have, and those that refuse to admit that they have an addiction will make no effort to fix what they believe is nonexistent.
Don’t do things alone
“If you want the long road to success do it all by yourself.” – James J-Pierre
It takes longer for one person to get to the top, vs if they have a team or at least one other person by their side. I have to admit, that doing things alone can get pretty lonely at times.
Surround yourself with qualified people to help you reach the top. What would have taken you 5 years+ will take you less time, less stress and less capital to get there.
You can’t chase happiness
Don’t set your happiness aside for a later date. The point of life is to grow and enjoy the journey. But you must remember that you have a choice. Happiness is nothing but daily habits. Surround yourself with the right people and do something you enjoy.
Don’t force yourself to be happy. Don’t chase happiness, because it will elude you. Instead, do things that attract happiness and don’t put it off for later, or you will miss out on life.
Take these seven steps and apply them to your life. It’s never too late if you learn and apply. Accept change and grow, just as life intended for you.
One thing I also want to point out is the word wantrepreneur. I used it more as an example to make a point for this post, but if you want to grow. Start by eliminating that word. That word is crippling in many ways. Either you are, or you are not an entrepreneur.
If you are working towards what will bring you success, or you are searching for better because you don’t like being complacent. You are an entrepreneur. But there is no need to put a title on things, just put in work, and whatever you want in life, start now. Don’t wait for later or make excuses, start right now, and remember that failure is only the beginning and you go further with support.
