Favorite Success Quote
“There is nothing wrong with you and you are not alone”
1. Your Biggest Weakness is Your Biggest Strength
Anyone who was great, past or present, has always had some weakness that others thought was crippling, yet they somehow learned to turn them into one of their greatest assets.
Einstein was told he would never amount to anything because he did poorly in school due to the way that he processed and understood information, and now we have quantum physics.
Richard Branson was told that because of his dyslexia he would never be successful, and yet because of his unique way of understanding the world, we have hundreds of industry-changing companies under the Virgin umbrella.
Anyone who tells you that you cannot succeed because of x, needs a swift kick in the ass, because odds are, the very reason that they told you you couldn’t succeed, will be the reason that you can.
2. Success Leaves Clues but Most of the Clues You Hear About are Bullshit
There is a simplicity to success, yet we tend to complicate it. You have hundreds if not thousands of unsuccessful people speaking on stage telling you that the way to achieve what you want is to create unrealistic goals and recite them 12 times a day.
Success is simple, it is about eliminating the toxic things from your life and replacing them with the habits of champions. It is about waking up early, working hard, staying focused, and developing your skill set. Anything else is icing on the cake.
3. Don’t Focus on Being Busy Focus on Outcomes
So often in business, we wear busyness like a badge of honor, but this is a backwards way of approaching it. The longer you are in business, the more outcomes you should be creating, the more revenue you should be producing, and the less busy you should be.
Focus on creating outcomes each day instead of a menial to do list.
4. Daily Habits are Everything
Success boils down to your positive habits outweighing your negative ones, plain and simple.
One of the best habits you can cultivate is to wake up early and spend an hour planning in solitude, starting by asking yourself these two questions…
“What is my intention for the day”
“Where was I uncomfortable yesterday”
Knowing what you intention is for the day, meaning the outcomes you want to create and knowing what made you uncomfortable in the days past will allow you to have an accurate view of what is necessary to your day and the changes that you need to make.
5. Start Taking Care of Your Health
You have nothing if you do not have your health.
If you learn to take care of your body through hyper hydration, and properly fueling yourself, you will have far more success, you will perform better in life and business, and of course, you will have more sex 😉
