If you can discipline yourself to do what you should do, your success is virtually guaranteed. Self-discipline requires self-mastery, self-control, self-responsibility, and self-direction.
Your greatest asset can be your willingness to persevere longer than anyone else. In fact, your persistence is a true measure of your belief in yourself and your ability to success.
Successful people are decisive and they try far more things than other people do. If you try far more different ways to be successful, the odds are that you will eventually find the right way for you, at the right time.
Time is the most valuable commodity so it’s disrespectful if you waste it. Being on time is something that is very much in your control. People who are always late underestimate how much time it takes to get ready and go somewhere.
This is a prerequisite to becoming successful. No matter how talented you are, if you don’t have this then you’ll never realize your full potential. Preparation breeds confidence, which is essential.
Choose a positive attitude as often as you can. No one wants to be around someone who is negative and negativity doesn’t lead to success. No external event can effect you unless you allow it.
Align yourself with what you love. When you are passionate about something, it constantly excites you. To truly be great at something, you’re going to have to love it.
A lot of the times communication is non-verbal and the way you carry yourself is more important than what you say. Make good eye contact and stand up straight!
Being coachable is one of the keys to success. If you over deliver people will always remember you. It’s not about degrees or financial status, it’s about your habits.
