So this blog post is a little reminder for myself and for some of you.
Many people send their lives as a spectator on the sidelines, watching as others are creating and living the life of their dreams. Those watching are the ones that don’t let themselves get inspired. Instead they just copy what other are doing.Especially on the internet there are a lot of those copiers.
In addition there is just so much information out there on the internet and it tends to overwhelm us. Oftentimes all we are concerned about are others. What are others doing? What are others thinking? What are others saying about me? And because we are so concerned about others, this really prevents us from being creative and we’re actually holding back our potential.
1. Create your perfect opportunity
Don’t wait for that perfect moment or the perfect opportunity. For most of us that perfect opportunity will never come by just waiting around. Instead we can go out and seek and create our own opportunities.
So what I am a huge advocate of is trying new things. These new experiences can open up whole new wolds for us, that we didn’t even know excised. Often times we would rather stay comfortable and stick to what we know. This puts is into our own little bubble and prevents us from learning new things that can broaden our horizon and change our perspective.
2. Believe in yourself
If you don’t believe in yourself, why should other? Others can really sense insecurity. So believe in your cause and in your dreams. Think about why it is, that you want to do what you want to do. This lets you be more confident and that in turn helps you go out and experience new things, which brings me back to my first point.
3. Follow role models, but don’t follow blindly
It’s a good idea to analyze how others in your line of field have done to become successful. Because it as shown that their strategy and hard work can and does lead to that outcome. For example if you aspire to be a world renowned author, take a look at some of the best today and analyze their work to the last detail. Now don’t go off just copying their strategy, because most likely it will not work out as it did for them. We are all different. We start out from a different point and we are different people. So instead we should take the proven strategy and adapt it to suit us and our cause.
4. Have an open mind
Don’t be quick to judge. Have an open mind and take in all the important information for you. Most of all, be patient. For some the “success” will come faster and maybe even easier than for others. But be patient and keep at it. There is no such thing as overnight success.
