The only difference between successful people who achieve what they want and the people who don’t is that the achievers ignore all the excuses.
They find a way to overcome their limitations, instead of complaining about them, and that is exactly why they are successful.
6. Your actions define you, not your thoughts.
Good thoughts are wonderful, but if those intentions aren’t realized through actions, they mean nothing. In your head, you can keep conceptualizing ways to make the world a better place, but unless you actively start to implement them, your good intentions make no difference at all.
In the end, who you are is defined by your actions and not your thoughts.
7. Nobody is coming to save you from your life.
When we are unhappy with our situation in life, we illogically hope for a drastic change to happen on its own and save us from our miserable existence. It’s easier to believe that the perfect job opportunity, the lover of our dreams, and unexpected surprises will reach us on their own.
But the brutal truth is that life doesn’t function that way. Your dream person isn’t coming for you riding on a white horse and if you want a change in circumstance, you need to create it from scratch.
This is what the most successful people do– when the going gets tough, they put on their armor, mount their horse, and come to rescue themselves. Because they know that if they want to save the day, they will have to be the one doing it.
8. Time is the real currency in life.
Think like this– you give up at least 40 hours a week to earn the cash that makes everything you want in life accessible. So wasting time is like wasting hard-earned money. Make good use of your time. Invest it wisely. You’ll never get back the precious moments that you lose.
