15) A little every day
Want to write a novel? Write a few paragraphs a day. Maybe tweak the outline everyday. If you write three paragraphs a day you’ll potentially write four novels a year. Maybe the first 3, 10 or even 20 won’t bring you great success, that’s okay. The probability of being a success in 5 years will be greater because of “a little every day.”
16) Don’t be in a rush
150 successful people were interviewed, and all 150 people had one thing in common… It took them 10 to 20 years to attain their success, and they celebrated the small successes along the way. It may or may not take you 10 to 20 years to achieve your version of success, but don’t rush, enjoy the ride.
Focus your energy on what you can control and influence (your attitude, your kindness, your education, your work ethic, your communication, etc.). Don’t focus your energy other people’s attitudes, inflation, the weather, and the like because you’ll never be able to control them.
18) Be Impeccable with your Word
“Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using your words to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your words in the direction of truth and love.” – Don Miguel Ruiz, Author of The Four Agreements
19) Don’t Take Things Personal
“Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.” – Don Miguel Ruiz, Author of The Four Agreements
20) Don’t Make Assumptions, Unless You’re Assuming The Best
“Find the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness and drama. With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life.” – Don Miguel Ruiz, Author of The Four Agreements
21) Always Do Your Best
“Your best is going to change from moment to moment; it will be different when you are healthy as opposed to sick. Under any circumstance, simply do your best, and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse, and regret.” – Don Miguel Ruiz, Author of The Four Agreements
As we conclude this three part blog series we can say confidently, if these habits are applied accurately and consistently they are sure to help you attain whatever your version of a successful life may be. You never know, you just might be a Millionaire In The Making.
