1: Don’t be scared

Lose the fear! Don’t be afraid to try new things and follow your dreams.

Don’t let the fear of failure stop you from working on your potential and towards your passions in life. The world needs more of that.

Dream big and don’t fear anything.

2: Don’t make excuses

You are the leader of your own life. Successful people have taken the matter in their own hands and know that they are the only ones who are responsible for their life choices both successes and failures. 

3: Say ‘No’ to toxic people

Take a closer look at the people in your surrounding and try to see them as they really are. Some people are more accomplished and successful than you, and some are not.

Surround yourself only with people that are more successful and more accomplished.

On the other hand, if you spend time with people who are less accomplished than you are, they will bring down your success to their level.

4: Don’t say ‘Yes’ to things that don’t back your goals

Successful people know that in order to achieve long-term success they need to give up on many short-term gratifications and pleasures.

So if you want succeed, you have to be prepared to say ‘no’ to certain plans and activities with friends, colleagues, or family.

5: Avoid believe in the “Magic Bullet”

There is no such thing as overnight. Life is not a fairytale with a magic wand.

So successful people know that in order to succeed they need to take small steps of improvement every day.

6: Don’t expect perfection

Nothing will ever be perfect regardless of how much we want it to be.

Therefore, do not strive towards perfection and do not let your fear of not being good enough get the best of you.

If you are always waiting for the “perfect” time and circumstances, you will probably lose great opportunities.

7: Don’t let your mindset be short-termed

If you want to be successful, you must give up the short-termed mindset, and like all successful people start making long-term plans.

Successful people follow these long-termed plans with a series of everyday habits.

These habits become part of who they are. For example, there is a difference when someone exercises to get in shape for a season, as opposed to someone who exercises daily because it is a part of who they are.

8: Don’t listen to side talk

Sometimes, no matter how much effort you put in your work, there will be people who won’t approve of it. And that is perfectly fine, as long as you believe in yourself, your capabilities and understand that you cannot expect everyone to like you.

9: Beware of the fixed mindset

Do not let yourself believe that your intelligence and talent are fixed virtues and that your success in life will be based solely on your traits.

Successful people know that in order to succeed they must work hard daily on improving their talent, perceptions, learning new things and developing a progressive mindset.

10: Don’t multi-task

Being fully present and focused on one task is the key to success. No matter what the task is a workout, a hobby, a business idea you need to take one thing at a time and excel in it.

11: Remove leading an unhealthy lifestyle from your habits

Every achievement and happiness starts within yourself.

Taking care of your health and well-being is essential. You should keep in mind two things: healthy diet and physical activity.

12: Drop the theory that you can control everything

Some things are out of our control and no matter how much we try, we cannot change them.

You must learn to separate yourself from the things you cannot change, and focus on the things you can.

Do however, keep in mind that sometimes the only thing that you can change about something is your attitude towards it.
