The 10 Things Successful People Live By Before They Make It

1. They didn’t use excuses.

We all have two voices. There’s the voice that tells us to work hard, to focus on the task at hand and to finish it before we move on to the next. And to finish it well.
We also have the voice that tells us to take a break, to think about what’s on TV, or to visit a site that we like to visit that entertains us – whether it’s or facebook.
In life we’re the victim of injustice from time to time. It could be a promotion that we deserve but don’t get. No matter who we are, we’re going to be treated unfairly at some point. We can either feel sorry for ourselves, or push forward and put it behind us – even use it as motivation.
Nelson Mandela could have used his unjust imprisonment as an excuse to give into his anger. Instead, he used it as an opportunity to learn, grow, and eventually free others.
Listen to your excuses. Understand why you have them. Then figure out how you can use them for good.

2. It wasn’t just about them.

‘Things’ can be a motivator, they can even be a reward, but they can’t be the motivator. The truly successful in life always get there because they created change in the lives of others, not just their own.
If something drives you that is greater than just the ‘ends’, we’re going to work harder, longer, and we’re going to give more of ourselves to our project.
Yes we can make money when we have the primary goal of making money. Some might even use that money for good – which is awesome. But there’s no fulfillment in simply making money. And isn’t that the point?

3. Early mornings and late nights.

People who have achieved true success in their lives have worked for it.
This might come at the detriment of other areas of their lives, such as family or social life. But their mission is first and foremost. Until it’s complete, everything else comes second.
There’s literally no substitute for hard work. Abraham Lincoln said, “Things may come to those who wait… but only the things left by those who hustle.” If you want to be successful, you’re going to have to out hustle everyone else.

4. The greatest commodity.

Energy is a huge commodity that is often not talked about. Yes, energy in the sense of fuel and electricity is talked about everywhere, but I’m talking about our own energy levels.
The fact is that the more energy we have, the easier it is to focus, and the higher the quality of our work is.
One of Richard Branson‘s ‘key’s to success’ is staying in great physical shape. So would raised energy levels be the greatest benefit to working out? It may be.
Keeping physically fit gives us greater blood-flow to our brain, enhanced alertness and improved focus. Make training a routine part of your life and increase your chances at success – in every meaning of the word.

5. Principles.

History will be kind to me. For I intend to write it.
Winston Churchill had principles. The difference between him and the rest of us, is that he stuck to his principles at all costs. He didn’t waver when they weren’t popular – an extreme rarity in politics.
What are your principles? All of us should have them, know what they are, and live our lives bythem.
One of Apple’s principles is to bring change to the world through technology, and they do it with every product they release.
Identify what principles you have that guide your life through tough times, and when things couldn’t be any better. They shouldn’t change, and at your core, neither should you.

6. Wavering, yet unbreakable faith.

We all have moments of doubt. Even the best of us question if our dream is going to come true. The one thing that separates the truly successful from those who never reach their true potential is an unbreakable faith in the fact that what they’re doing is right.
Even if they have moments of doubt, they’re soon quelled, where other’s listen to that doubt and let it eat them up and finally they quit.
Have your moments of doubt. You’re human. Just don’t let that doubt eat you up. Instead let it motivate you to prove your optimism right.

7. A reason.

Many of the greatest accomplishments in the world were accomplished by insecure men and women, people who had something to prove to others. A desire to elevate their status and create change that was so strong, that failure is simply never and option.
Abraham Lincoln‘s reason(s) had to do a lot with his view of himself in relation to how other’s viewed him. Where others saw a poor, illiterate boy, Lincoln saw someone capable of achieving more, even if he had to do it completely on his own. He also saw the need for change. A nation that preached freedom wasn’t free. He saw something fundamentally wrong with this and set out to change it. His why wasn’t about him. Which in turn made him one of history’s great men.
Understand why. You have that reason to work when others sleep, to sacrifice a safe life for a risky one with no ceiling. Find it by asking why, and not stopping until you hit your core, emotional reason for wanting to change your status, or the status of others.

8. They persevered when others didn’t.

How does the guy who quit on his dream know how long it would’ve taken him to become a success? He doesn’t. None of us do. It could be tomorrow, or ten years from now.
What separates a lot of the great people we read about in our history books from those we’ve never heard of is the fact that they never quit. Quitting was never an option. They only stopped when they reached their dream. And even then, they created a new mission.
Take James J. Braddock, or even Nelson Mandela, for example. They didn’t achieve their greatness or success early on in their careers or in life like some. They achieved it after surviving. They survived while others literally died, or quit. In their cases it wasn’t just that they were the best, but they were the best because of what they endured. They were the last one’s standing.
We don’t know when our breakthrough will come. So don’t guarantee your failure by quitting. You can adapt, change, and evolve, but never, never, never quit.

9. Great people relentlessly studied their craft.

Tony Gwynn and Mike Tyson studied their craft as much as anyone. Gwynn spent hours upon hours studying opposing pitchers. He studied their patterns. He wasn’t the most athletic guy around, but he put his work in to be the best at what he did: hit baseballs.
When people think of Tyson, they think of an animal, but what we fail to see is the student. No one studied boxing like Tyson did. Watched more film than anyone in the history of the sport. He was a student first, a fighter second.
These great athletes studied film, but how can we perfect our craft?
Using myself as an example; much of my job has to do with writing, and obviously fitness. So, I study those two things. I read books about how to become a better writer, ways to connect with the reader, and I simply read great books written by authors who are much better at writing than I am. If you’re in sales, read and study sales. If you’re a marketer, then do the same with marketing.
Being a drone that simply goes through the motions is no way to achieve greatness. Assuming success is something you want, you have to study your craft, whatever it may be. Learn it inside and out. Build a wealth of knowledge. It’ll help you create great, inspiring, and unique work.

10. Risk.

No risk, no reward. Yes it’s an over-used, cliché of a phrase. But it’s true. Those who have achieved real success have often risked the most to get there.
There have been billions of people throughout history who have had the ability to achieve greatness, whether it was the talent or smarts, they had it. What they didn’t have was the guts to risk the life that they were living. They also didn’t have the work ethic to see their talent realized.
The greatest tragedy in life is wasted talent ~ A Bronx Tale
Your big, audacious dream might be to marry the girl of your dreams and have a family with her. You risk might be to leave the career that you love in order to support her and your family. Your dream might be to help millions live longer, healthier lives. Whatever your dream is, give it enough of a chance to be realized.
Risk if you truly want to see the reward.

Find your dream. Then risk everything to get it.

Anthony Robbins "What If"

"What if problems were always gifts?
What if every single problem really was a gift in your life?
What if every problem you ever had was life happening for you not to you?
What if every thing in our life is guided? What if everything in our life was divine timing?
Everything! Even the pain? When you are in the darkest place and you feel that all is lost? When you think that there is no way to turn it around? Remember this....Victory is near!"
Tony Robbins

Mid-Week Motivation

Setting clear goals + repeating them every single day + using powerful physiological movements while repeating your goals (I would suggest doing this in the morning) + Unshakeable belief + Taking absolute massive action = An integration of your goals into your nervous system and a coherence with the universe for your goals to become YOUR reality!!!
Every single result is being produced from your mind so once you a clear on what you want, make it the most compelling future so it pulls you towards it, then integrate the emotions of certainty and belief of having already achieved your goals into your nervous system, this will activate a part of your brain that will allow you to notice things that perhaps you didn't notice before and send you the circumstances, people and events for you to step up and achieve it. You have to think BIG!!!! Two different people can see the same building and someone who for example does not see themselves as successful might think 'oh they look like nice windows to clean I might ask them for a job' . While someone with a bigger mindset will see the same building and think 'Im am going to own that building one day..what can I do to own it?' and those two people will take completely different actions just simply based on their beliefs about who they are and what they are capable of. This creates a completely different destiny for those 2 people.
The quality of your life is based on the quality of questions you ask yourself. Instead of asking why does this always happen to me? Why did they do that to me? ask yourself better questions like what do I want? How can I make it how I want it? How can I solve this? What do I have to believe to solve this? What is the meaning I can choose from this to empower me to feel and experience what I want? We cannot always control what happens in our lives but what we CAN control is the meaning that we give those things that have happened. You must believe and have faith that there is ALWAYS a higher meaning for what happens if not in the present most certainly there is one for the future. So sometimes you just have to trust that there is a divine plan, there is a supreme destiny for us all and that life is happening for us. Could it be that it is for us to know, be and remember ourselves as unconditional love? For us to remember and experience the oneness that we share between us all? To reconcile any perceived separation between others that we may experience? Have an outstanding week! Peace, love and harmony

What Do Leaders Do by Anthony Robbins

What do leaders do? How can you make yourself a leader in your industry and in your life? Tony says we must live life by our standards (not on anybody else's). Leader's maximise resources! They do not live by other peoples rules or beliefs. They live and commit to their own beliefs and standards! To raise your standards you must turn your should's into musts!

Possible or Impossible? 

What we consider possible or impossible is rarely a function of our true capability but more a function of our beliefs about who we are!! It is the small decisions we make every single day that will ultimately determine our destiny!
If there is something you want to do and you are feeling the feelings of fear (false evidence appearing real) then there are a few ways to overcome this by asking yourself:
1. What have been the most negative consequences as a result of holding onto this fear? How much has this cost me already?
2. If I do not commit to this action, will when I am sitting in my rocking chair at 80 years old regret not taking this decision?
3. Why is it an absolute must for me to do this now? What are the reasons why it is a must that I do this?
So when you feel the feelings of fear acknowledge them and say thank you for trying to protect me, however my life will not be defined by fear, it will be defined by my unshakeable belief, certainty, burning desire and faith that within me that I can and I will create ANYTHING I choose!!
You do not get what you want you get what you expect! Sometimes we want and want but in order to have you must not want. Because you cannot want and have at the same time. Whatever is happening in your world right now is a reflection of your expectations. Energy flows where your awareness goes. The most dominant force in your awareness is your expectations!!! So feel the feeeelings of already 'having' that which you desire and by the law of the universe you are allowing that which you want into your life! It is not separate from you....Make it a part of you and it will draw itself to you at the speed that is in direct proportion to your level of expectation!!

Anthony Robbins - "Take Action"

What changes our whole life is action! Why don't we take action? Fear.
What do we have to do to get ourselves to do it?
We have to make sure that we push ourselves through it by making a decision.

The point in which change happens is a decision. Every change you want in your life will come from something simple. That simple thing is a decision. The only thing it takes to change is decide. You have to put yourself into a state to decide. A real decision is not a preference or an interest or 'I'll try it and see'. Decision comes from the Latin 'incision' which means to cut off from. Decision is where you cut off any possibility except for the thing you are committed to.  Once you have made a real decision you have now made the step necessary to experience the change that you want in your life!

Tony Robbins- The difference Between a Winner and a Loser

When all hell is breaking loose and nothing is are only actually 2mm away from your goal! Its at this stage most people think it is impossible so they give up. That's what separates the best from the rest! So the most powerful belief to have is when nothing is working just know you are only 2mm away. Ask yourself what little thing do I change and when I do it changes everything? To be the best you must give more than anybody else!
