Priceless life lessons I’ve learned throughout my life that I consider important…
First Life Lesson:
Success is never about your resources, it’s about your resourcefulness.
Many people believe that they need more money, right connections or college degrees in order to be considered really “successful” in life… But this could be totally wrong.
Rather than let a lack of resources stop you, see this as a challenge to get resourceful! Choose to set your fears aside and open your mind to learning what it is you need to learn in order to get to where you want to be.
Which leads to…
Second Life Lesson:
Don’t let “I don’t know how” stop you from learning how.
There’s a quote by a Vietnamese monk named Thich Nhat Hanh: “People have a hard time letting go of their suffering. Out of a fear of the unknown, they prefer suffering that is familiar.”
And so – even though they may not be totally happy where they currently are in life – they subconsciously do what they can to stay there because they find comfort in the predictability.
In my experience, what usually stops people from pursuing their goals and dreams is that stepping out and trying something new feels unfamiliar and scary. So, if you’ve ever felt this fear …
One of the best ways to overcome it so that you can spring into action is to surround yourself with the right support network.
And this brings to…
Third Life Lesson:
Always seek to create a positive “Circle of Influence.”
Want to take your career, income or love life to the next level? And you don’t have a crystal clear plan…
But it is downright crucial that you surround yourself with people who will support you to stay in action and live your best life. I call this your “Circle of Influence.”
The people you choose to surround yourself with can either inspire you to create exciting new realities for yourself, or they can cripple your success by making you doubt who you are and what you’re capable of.
So be mindful of who you spend your time with!
Your future happiness really does depend on it.
