There is no formula to get overnight success. Maybe there is one, but not everyone will get it. So, start focusing on your own shit. I don’t know about the other countries but in India its an era of startups. People are focusing on startups rather than getting a job because it’s merely impossible to get a Good Job(well-paid job) or Government Job(for the general cast). That’s why people are starting a business, but they are not able to clear their head to get success in life. They need to create a habit/routine or set some Rules for themselves to get Success in Life. I cannot tell the method to get success, but there are some rules that people should follow which will help in focusing on the business or goal. When I was a kid I read a quote written on the wall of my school:
Failures are the pillar of Success.
You need to keep moving forward even if you fail an uncountable number of times(tell me if you have any other option. 😛 )
- 1. Stop feeling Pity or Sorry for yourself.
- 2. Stop Living in the Past.
- 3. Don’t be afraid of change.
- 4. Stop focusing on things you can’t control.
- 5. Have firm faith in yourself but don’t be overconfident.
- 6. Stop pleasing everyone.
- 7. Don’t give up after failures.
- 8. Don’t make the same mistake again and again.
- 9. Don’t expect immediate success.
- 10. Don’t be afraid to spend time alone.
- 11. Don’t be jealous of other peoples success.
- 12. Always remember this world owes you nothing.
So, I created a set of rules, or you can call it a way of living you can follow or adopt that may help you getting success in life.
11. Stop feeling Pity or Sorry for yourself.
22. Stop Living in the Past.
Just take a deep breath and examine your life. 90% of the problems are due to overthinking. The best thing you can do for your life is to keep moving forward. Stop worrying about the past which already happened and start working in your present to get success in life.
33. Don’t be afraid of change.
“A larva can never be a butterfly if he never leaves the cocoon.”
Most of the people are afraid of change due to Fear of Pain, Discomfort, Criticism, Results. All you have to do is overcome the fear. Start slowly. It is hard, but it will be worth it. Celebrate every small victory. Eventually, you will get rid of your concerns, and start living your life happily. You will be able to focus on your work or goals.
44. Stop focusing on things you can’t control.
Always remember you cant clear your head when you are hungry or angry. It makes everything more difficult and forces you to think that everything is impossible. Don’t hold over anything. Take a deep breath and let it go. Be focused on your life goals. It doesn’t matter if it seems impossible to achieve. Get to know your fears. Do something about your stress. Do meditation, go for a walk daily. Develop healthy habits. Focusing on the things you cant control will only make it more difficult to get success in life.
55. Have firm faith in yourself but don’t be overconfident.
Faith helps you to discover your purpose in life and achieving what you want. Going through life and all of its ups and downs can shake your faith, but success isn’t something which comes overnight. Remember, The difficult situations get harder before it gets better. Another reason to have a strong faith in yourself is Faith trumps stress, anxiety, and fear. If you are free from these things, you will ultimately have enough guts to face anything which life throws at you.
66. Stop pleasing everyone.
The reasons you want to please everyone maybe: You don’t love yourself much. So, you want other people to love you. You are less confident. You are easy to manipulate. You fail to pleases one person that matters. And there may be much more reasons you want to please everyone but just ask one question from yourself. Is it worthy? I guess not so.
You will get end up in depression when you fail to please people. Stop it right now. People aren’t worth it. The one who likes you will end up with you. Because when you stop seeking the approval of others, you’ll find that you never needed it in the first place.
77. Don’t give up after failures.
Have you seen the movie “The Pursuit of Happiness”? This movie is all about Chris Gardener’s life, a man who went for the lowest of the lows in an environment where most people would give up (no money, no job) to the highest of the highs (A millionaire with his own investment firm). If you ever think about giving up, watch this movie.
You are stronger than you think. One little failure is not enough to stop you from getting success in life. Not even 10 or 100 or 1000 failures.
88. Don’t make the same mistake again and again.
99. Don’t expect immediate success.
Never Give In or Up. Know that being consistent in all that they do, make progress and move forward while others make excuses and are left behind. They keep going when others give in or give up, and it pays off. This is how they build their expertise and authority, but it is also how they produce outcomes. (via- Sergei VanBellinghen)
I want to ask a question from you:
What will you choose?
– A company with millions of users but no profit.
– A company with very few users but making profit.
1010. Don’t be afraid to spend time alone.
The love you want from others? Find it within yourself. You lose your insecurities and embrace yourself. What others think of you matters the least and you attain a peace of mind. If you try to spend some time with your own thoughts, you may just find yourself. And when you do, there won’t be any bond happier.
1111. Don’t be jealous of other peoples success.
I’ll list a few: If you’re in a fledgling market, you need the pie to grow more than you need your slice to grow. You’ll become obsessed with one competitor more than you should and will lose sight of the new entrant that can pounce because you never took them seriously. If you’re a startup, then you will likely fail and will then need a new job. And, if you’re like me, you can get acquired by a company who will then go and buy your nearest competitor. (via – Gregory Larkin)
1212. Always remember this world owes you nothing.
Entitlement is a success-killer.
Mark Twain said “Don’t go around saying the world owes you a living. The world owes you nothing.” So, Follow these Rules to get success.
There is one more thing not to ignore which plays a very vital role in your success:
Extra Advice: Health – Never Neglect Your Health
Once the Dalai Lama was asked what surprises him the most?
“Man surprised me most about humanity. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”
All successful people take care of their health well because they know that health is a wealth which once lost can never be recovered. They keep themselves healthy by following the right diet and right lifestyle. (via- Awdhesh Singh)
You need to create these habit/routine in your daily life to get Success in Life. When you will adopt these things in your life. You will surely be able to focus on your life or goals and get success in life.
