Accomplishing something in life is all about building momentum. It makes everything simpler for you. It’s a lot easier to push with something than it is to push against something. That’s the beauty of compound interest. That’s the beauty of accumulation. That’s why it’s easier to stay in shape than it is to get into shape. Simply put – in most cases – the more you have the more you get. It’s the Rich Get Richer Poor Get Poorer Theory. It’s simple math; that’s why it’s so important to not only build momentum but once you have the momentum built it is paramount you don’t lose it. Basically it does down to what doesn’t work for you works against you. If you’re behindFOR the eightball in any facet of your life you need to get back on your square – and quickly – before the momentum working against you demoralizes and then destroys you. Have the momentum work FOR you and not AGAINST you.
Once you truly value yourself and your life you will refrain from wasting time. Once you have a purpose that you’re living for that’s greater than fulfilling every one of your immediate urges you will truly find out how strong you really are. You will sacrifice with ease. You will treat your body with the respect it deserves. There will be no more bullshit in your lifestyle.
KEYS TO SUCCESS
– Tunnel Vision: Have tunnel vision. Know what you want to accomplish then focus all of your time and energy on accomplishing that goal. Constantly think about your goal and envision the feeling you will have when the goal is accomplished. write your goal down and keep it in a place where you will be constantly reminded of it. Hold yourself accountable.
– Sacrifice, sacrifice, sacrifice. If you want to earn something worthwhile, you’re going to have to sacrifice something worthwhile. There is no way around it… you can’t have everything. You have to find what is most important to you and focus on that, and simply let other things go. To reach success, you’re going to have to sacrifice time, leisurely activity, sleep, whatever. Trust me, once you reach your goals, it will all be worth it.
– Have a strong mental image of yourself. Believe in yourself. Believe in your potential. Believe in your skills. Believe in your talents. Believe in your knowledge. Believe in your plan. If nobody else on the planet believes in you, believe in yourself.
– Surround yourself with those people you can learn from. If you are the smartest, most talented, most skilled, most driven person in your crew then you are most definitely doing yourself a disservice. You’re not going to grow if you’re spending all of your time hanging out with people who are lesser than you. a man on the rung below you can’t help you climb that ladder.
– Don’t ever allow yourself to get too comfortable. In fact, to reach your highest levels, you need to get comfortable with being uncomfortable. You’re never going to know how far you can reach if you don’t consistently stretch your limits.
– Use your time wisely. Time is the most valuable asset for any and everyone. We all have an equal amount of time in the day. a person can be smarter, better looking, and stronger than you but we all only have 24 hours in the day to accomplish what we want to accomplish. Use your 24 hours better than the next man.
– Do your research. If you don’t do your research before trying to do something, you’ll just be wasting time, energy, money, etc., and you’ll only be hurting yourself.
– When your moment comes, seize it. They say “luck” is when preparation meets opportunity. Be lucky. Once an opportunity comes, make sure you make the most of it. You never know when another is coming, if another even comes at all. Nothing will demoralize you more than the regret of a lost, missed, or wasted opportunity.
If you want something in life – money, friends, women – all you have to do is create value. You can either produce valuable commodities or you yourself can become the valuable commodity. And you don’t even necessarily need to recognize the value yourself for someone else to recognize it, but if you don’t recognize it and they do you will most likely get fleeced when it’s time for the exchange.
People will pay for anything as long as it holds some kind of value to them, even if it’s not practical or not sensible, or even if it is damaging to them. Addicts will give up everything they have in order to get high and a “release” from the real world for only a couple of hours. The alcohol industry is a billion dollar industry. So something doesn’t need to be “good” for you for it to hold value.
If you want to get rich all you have to do is find something a large population of people finds to be valuable, produce it somehow, and make sure they know about it, and you’ll get paid. Some entrepreneurs and would be entrepreneurs get so caught up in trying to reinvent the wheel or create something new when it’s a lot easier to simply sell something that is proven to sell and people find valuable. Nobody ever went broke selling water to the thirsty.
The easiest thing to sell to people is a dream for their own future — people will literally give you their life for it. It’s actually the base of the pimp-ho relationship. It’s the base of the employer-employee relationship as well. People work their entire lives, give up all of their energy, in an attempt to move up in somebody else’s company and at the end their ream never even gets fulfilled. But that’s some deeper game for another day.
If you want a girlfriend, make yourself a person who either has a lot of value or potential access to a lot of value. That’s actually where most men tend to get relationships wrong – they spend their energy trying to give to a woman and impress her and help her make moves when that’s the completely wrong approach. If you want a successful relationship you must always focus on yourself first. If you lead, others will follow. If you spend all day trying to help your lady accomplish her dream and in the process you neglect your own, once she accomplishes hers and sees how far behind you are on your own, nine times out of ten she will leave you or cheat on you, and the other ten percent will simply nag the shit out of you. Why? Because you no longer hold any value to her. And it’s not her fault or a “moral wrong” done by her – it’s your fault. You must always keep your value high.
Life is too short to live it the way someone else designed it for you as opposed to living it the way you want to live it. So you might as well run your life in the manner you want to live it and as long as you aren’t hurting anyone else or infringing on their right to live their life they want they want to you’ll see nothing but positive coming from your decision.
