Here are some important tips you can take note to improve your life and achieve better degrees of success.
Assess your strengths and limits wisely.
Yet do not let this stall you into inaction for opportunity will pass you by as a cloud blown by the wind. Before beginning any endeavour, look back into your past where you have embarked upon any similar efforts before.
Are you in a better position now than before? Or are you still the same, having not learned from the experiences of the past. If this be the case, then you either refine yourself or you abandon this new endeavour. Only risk for something truly worthwhile.
Perseverance is not the same as hard- headed and unchanging persistence.
Yes, it is true that if you never give up, you will eventually succeed, but, if you keep on doing what you’ve always been doing, you will always get what you’ve always been getting.
Unless, of course, it is something that involves incremental change, like saving your money or doing 100 push-ups a day to develop your strength.
But there are times you must withdraw from your efforts, take a step back and view the entirety of your pursuits from a higher perspective. Is there a better way? Is there a faster way? Is there a way that is beneficial to all?
History repeats itself for a reason.
You will face certain problems and events which you might have faced before. You may think you are unable to make any progress in your life. You may think it impossible to improve your condition. Do not despair.
You may have gone through the same things before but you have not risen above it. You have yet to tread beyond it. Yet this unique instance of the seemingly same problem offers newer and better insights into your condition. This is a lesson for you, a remedial, meant to teach what you had refused to learn.
Live only for your own.
Do this in such a way that you’d even refuse to listen to people who tell you to live only for your own. Announce your absurd ideas to the world. Get passionate about something neither you nor anybody else had ever done before.
Make mistakes. Fail terribly. Refuse advice. But mix all this with a teaspoon of wisdom and good- natured rationale. But do not be different for the sake of being different. Everybody wants to be different. If you are different, then you are all the same! The solution? Live truly!
