Beware of people that have nothing to lose when they give you an advice. If you take those advice without asking yourself if they are good or not, then you can find yourself in trouble.
“Men are often biased in their judgment on account of their sympathy and their interests.”
– George William Norris
When the advice will not put them in peril, they will give you the first things that come up on their mind. With average source, you will never get more than average results.
People that have some kind of interest in your success, they will take the time to think about their advice to you. They have something to lose if you fail.
You can still find some really good people that will give you the best advice without any way of getting anything back from your success, but those people are sadly hard to find.
In the end, you are in charge of your success. Good or bad advice will not be the only factor.
We are our worst enemy. Inside of us we’ll find the good and the bad in our life.
When we look outside for the keys to our happiness, we look inside of us.
You have all the wonders inside of you. That you get them or not is all about you.
What you think you deserve, you do.
You can’t lie to yourself. So, if you think you deserve, you really need to believe it.
I can’t give you anything you don’t deserve.
You can’t give away anything that is not deserve. So, when you feel the need to give, do it.
If you feel the need to ask, then do it. You’ll never get what you don’t deserve. That you ask or not, you’ll get it in some way.
Do your best.
Compare only to yourself.
Do better than your last time.
“Everyone wants to be a winner, but very few people are ready to do what needs to be done to win.”
– Brian Tracy
Winner are not comparing themselves with others. They do their best against themselves and end up being the best in the end.
Your true competition is always yourself.
Be conscientious about what you want.
Be serious about your choices.
« If you don’t know where you’re going, you’ll end up somewhere else. »
– Yogi Berra
If you don’t know what you want, you’ll end up doing what others want.
“If you don’t build your dream, someone will hire you to build theirs.”
– Tony Gaskins
Things aren’t going to get better with your whining.
“Life isn’t fair. It’s true, and you still have to deal with it. Whining about it rarely levels the playing field, but learning to rise above it is the ultimate reward.”
– Harvey Mackay
Ok, things can get tough and we sometimes need to ventilate. But don’t stay on that level, rise up and find the will to keep going on.
Nothing great comes instantly, there’s a lot of work under it. And most of the time there’s also a lot of bad things happening before the success.
Whiner are not invited in the success club.
A good word…
People want to know they’re doing well. What ever you find that is good, say so. And even better would be to do it publicly.
“No man will make a great leader who wants to do it all himself or get all the credit for doing it.”
– Andrew Carnegie
Pick the leader among those who choose to follow you. Offer them the chance to take some leadership among the team. When you offer, it’s the first test you get them to take. If they take it, then maybe they have what is needed to become a leader in your team and if they don’t then maybe they still have some work to be done on them.
Do what needs to be done. But always offer your team to do some of it first. The more you’ll give them the opportunity to do, the more they’ll take from your shoulder. Support what is done and celebrate every success they’ll get.
“Leaders must be close enough to relate to others, but far enough ahead to motivate them.”
– John C. Maxwell
You don’t have to always be the top, but you need to be among the top. Leaders have to do what needs to be done if they want their team to do the same.
Motivating by example is the most powerful way to do it.
“Leadership is practiced not so much in words as in attitude and in actions.”
– Harold S. Geneen
Your attitude will become the attitude of your team. Your action will become the action of your team. Don’t expect something different.
“People buy into the leader before they buy into the vision.”
– John C. Maxwell
A leader without a vision will not go far and will not get a lot of people to follow. The vision will drive the leader before it can drive the team.
Don’t take your dream into your grave.
Take action on your dream so you won’t end up leaving this world with your unrealized dream.
Regrets are painful. Even more when you’re on your death bed.
What seems to be the easy way end up being the painful way.
Mistakes are normal. Take action on your dream.
