Want to learn how to live your dreams and be successful in life? If you do, this will be the right article for you. What you are going to discover here are going to help you achieve the life of your dreams…
1. Do It When You Are Still Young
I love this quote when I saw one of the interviews with Jackie Chan, “Do it while you are young”. Yes, life is short and you choose to either be ordinary, or extraordinary. You can choose to do it or not to do it. If you are really passionate in living your dreams, I would say, just do it. There is no perfect time and someday will never come, thus, you might as well just do it right away.
No matter what kind of bold dreams you have, you must take action and do it when you have the capability. Even if you fail, it does not matter because you tried it before. You do not have to wait until when you’re old only to regret what you have not done. Life has no take 2, so no matter what kind of dream life you desire, just do it and do it when you are young!
2. Nothing Is Impossible
There is no such thing as impossible to achieve. Think about it, 30 years ago if you tell people that in the future, there will be a device as small as the size of your palm that can be used for communication, to play games, to take pictures, etc, people will think that you are crazy. In today’s world, mobile phone is a necessity and it is not just a phone anymore.
Therefore, nothing is impossible unless if you make it impossible in your mind. Napoleon Hill once said, “Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve.” It is your limiting thoughts that stop you from achieving all the great things you desire in life. Thus, dare to dream big, believe that you can do it, never give up and take action on your dreams.
3. Sacrifice And Pay The Price Of Success
I always believe that there is no such as a free lunch in this world. If you want to be successful, you have to sacrifice and pay the price of it. Do you know that the moment when you are playing computer games, when you are relaxing, when you are partying with your friends in the night, someone out there is working hard toward his or her dreams? I’m not suggesting that you have to work on your dreams all the time; I’m saying that in order to achieve the great success in life, there is a price that you must pay.
So are you willing to sacrifice for what you want in your life? Success will not come to you automatically. You will not wake up in the morning and suddenly you have a million dollar in the bank. Life does not operate that way. You have to realize that if you want for something, you must work for it. If you desire for financial freedom, you must have a plan and work on that plan day in and day out. Eventually, you will become financially free.
4. Be Crazy And Make It Fun
If you want to be extraordinary, you must do something that is not ordinary, something extra, something more than normal, something crazy. If you look at Arnold Schwarzenegger’s success story, you will understand why he is able to accomplish so much in his life. He is willing to sacrifice and do crazy things for his dream. He even runs away while was serving the army just because he wanted to take part in the body building competition.
And don’t forget to make the process of achieving your dreams fun. In fact, life is full of fun and you should always take it as a challenge to live your best through it. Regardless of whatever situation you are in right now. If you are producing the results you want in life, you should rejoice and celebrate. And if you fail to achieve it, you should also make it fun and learn through the process.
5. Be Willing To Take The Risk And Fail
If you are doing your own business, you will understand that sometimes failure is inevitable. It is said that you have to fail at least 3 times before you can finally build a successful business. The reason is that if you fail, you will learn through the process. You will gain experience that most people never had before. You will become wiser in making decision and you will be more skillful in managing your business.
So are you willing to take the risk for the success you want in life? You must venture into uncertainty in order to be extraordinary. But you can learn to reduce the risk by learning about the subject matter. Do you think investing is risky? The answer is both yes and no. If you are a seasoned investor and you have the knowledge and skill, it will not be risky for you. However, if you do not have the knowledge and you do not know what you are doing, investing can be risky for you. Therefore, learn to reduce the risk by adopting the habit of never ending learning and improvement…
6. Always Be In The Learning Mode
Do you know that successful people always are in the learning mode? Do you know that you can become an expert in whatever field you want as long as you are willing to learn? For example, if you want to be an expert with a certain species of bird, all you need to do is to spend time learning about it every day. Think about it, if you spend time reading and learning about that kind of bird for an hour each day, after 5 years, you will have enormous knowledge about it. This is how you can become the best in what you do.
Just like how Michael Jordan becomes the best basketball player. He spends enormous of time into learning and training, which makes him the best. You can be the same if you are willing to spend time learning about the subject you want to be the best in. Read this interesting article to find out how spending 60 minutes a day can make you successful in life.
7. Stop Complaining And Whining About How Tough It Is
Bill Gates once said that life is unfair, so stop complaining and stop whining about how tough life is. If you fail in something, it is not your parent’s fault, it is not the economy’s fault, it is not the weather’s fault, and it is not your friend’s fault too. You have to understand that you are in charge of your own life. You are the one who is responsible for what you have decided and thus, end up in where you are right now.
If you take full responsibility of your life, you will have the power to change your life. If you lay blame and complain, you are actually giving away the power to change something. When you say that it is the economy’s fault, you are powerless to do anything about the economy. However, if you take the responsibility and understand that you are the one who is in charge, you can always change to get the results you want in life.
8. Align Your Passion With Your Dreams
Just like what Steve Jobs says, being successful is difficult and because of this, a lot of people give up when they are not producing the outcomes that they want. Hence, you have to make sure that you have the passion to do it. Your passion will be your fuel that motivate and drive you when you are not getting the results you want or whenever you are facing difficulties.
When you are doing something that you love, you will do it with your heart and thus, do it better than other people. If Tiger Woods does not like to play golf, he will never excel in it. If Donald Trump does not like making real estate deal, he will not be a billionaire today. You must love what you do and align your passion with your dreams if you want to be successful in it.
If you are still confuse with your dreams and don’t know what you want to accomplish, take a look at Master Your Mind. It is the only course that I strongly recommend to every one who wants to learn how to be successful in life.
9. Never Give Up
No matter what you do, never give up with your dreams, period. Do you know that success will come to you as long as you do not give up and keep working on your dreams? If you read the biography of successful people, you will see that they gone through a lot of tough times, but they never give up on their dreams, that is why they are successful.
Always remember this, a winner will never quit and a quitter will never win. As long as you stay in the game and still fighting, you still stand a chance to prove yourself and win the competition. However, if you give up and quit, you will never have the chance to play anymore.
10. Giving Back To The World
Yes, you have to give back to the world, to your society, to your community and to your people. Do good and you will be blessed with good things. Help out other people and do charity to bring this world a better place.
