- Create a powerful belief system
Ask any successful person what their number one rule for succeeding is. They all have this in common: They believe in themselves and what they’re doing, and they are not afraid to say it. If you don’t believe in yourself, why would anyone else?
When people ask you about your goals in life, don’t be afraid to say it out loud. If you have high goals, you might be laughed at while others will question your sanity. If you’re insecure about your goals, you will make insecure decisions that will lead you nowhere. Go against the grain, stand out. After all, how many people in the world today are actually living the dream? Now, how many of these people will respond something in the likes of “I don’t know” if you ask what their goals are?
Be determined and believe in yourself. People will respect you for having the guts for going after what you truly desire. I once heard a story about a guy that worked in a
video store. Every day he would bring two magazines to work, one was an entrepreneur magazine and the other was a magazine loaded with expensive and
fast-riding cars. His boss would ask him why he was bringing these magazines to work every day and his answer was: “I’m picking out the car I’m going to buy.” The response from the boss was like most average minds saying he was killing himself thinking like that, he would never ever get that car and would just end up disappointed when it never happened. Turned out, the guy later quit the job at the video store and followed his dream. Some years later he returned to the video store to return a video, and he did so in the car he picked out from the magazine. He found yhe same people who were working with him still there. Now, can you imagine the looks on their faces when he turned up in the car they said he would never ever get? Priceless. And it all started by creating a powerful belief system.
- Invest in yourself
A wise man was once asked what the best possible investment someone could make. His answer was short, sweet and simple: “Invest In Yourself.” The man’s name is Warren Buffett. He is known as the world’s greatest investor. According to Forbes, he has a net worth of $53.5 Billion. Hiring a personal coach, getting a membership at a gym, buying healthy foods, books and education are not expenses. They are investments: investments is yourself. Some things you can do today to invest in yourself are:
Go to the gym and train. Physical training releases endorphins and makes you feel great. It increases productivity and energy levels. By investing time in the gym, you’ll be better able to handle daily tasks and what life throws at you. Forty-five to fifty minutes is all you need, it’s actually the best time to shoot for in a workout.Google image search
Eat good food. When you go to the grocery store after work, ask yourself: “What foods will nourish my mind and body to feel and perform better?”You are setting yourself up for greatness and consciously making yourself aware of what foods will empower you, therefore make better decisions.
Start reading books . Everyone buys books, but very few actually reads them cover to cover.

Stop reading books and start studying them . Few read the books they buy, but even fewer remembers what they read. Stop reading books and start studying books.
Study at least one hour a day. “One hour per day of study will put you at the top of your field within three years. Within five years you’ll be a national authority. In seven years, you can be one of thebest people in the world at what you do.” – Brian Tracy
Take notes. Never leave home without a pen and a piece of paper. The best ideas often comes in the least appropriate times, write them down. Don’t trust your mind to remember them—it won’t. Writing it down right away will also allow your mind to store and come up with more ideas. Nowadays, you can use plenty of notes-taking apps for taking notes.
Learn a new skill. Learn something new every day, a new skill or a new word. One new skill every day equals 365 new skills a year. Now imagine where you could be a year from now if you start doing it today?
Do something for yourself. Yes, hard work is a major factor for succeeding, but at least once per month do something fun, something outrageous and spontaneous that makes you feel alive.
Have fun and enjoy yourself.
