To become successful you may need to give up some habits and ways of thinking. It will help you reaching your goals faster. Some things will be easier to stop, and some things might be harder.

 

[av_iconlist position=’left’ iconlist_styling=” custom_title_size=” custom_content_size=” font_color=” custom_title=” custom_content=” color=” custom_bg=” custom_font=” custom_border=”] [av_iconlist_item title=’Stop living an unhealthy life’ linktarget=” linkelement=” icon=’ue847′ font=’entypo-fontello’] If you want to achieve things in your life everything starts here. First, you need to take care of your body by sleeping well, eating well and exercising. May not seem like much, but you will thank yourself one day.
[/av_iconlist_item] [av_iconlist_item title=’Stop short time thinking’ linktarget=” linkelement=” icon=’ue863′ font=’entypo-fontello’] Successful people set up long-term goals and they also know the secret of reaching them. Achieving their long-term goals is a result of daily habits and routines. There is a difference between “training for beach 2018” and “training because that’s the way you are”.
[/av_iconlist_item] [av_iconlist_item title=’Give up playing small’ linktarget=” linkelement=” icon=’ue87f’ font=’entypo-fontello’] Nobody will thank you for diminishing yourself so that others feel less confident around you. Everyone deserves to shine. Children do it naturally, but everyone has it in them. When we liberate ourselves from fear, our presence also liberates others around us. If you never try to take on great opportunities, you will never reach your full potential. Dream big and try to reach your big dreams. Make your ideas heard, do not be afraid to fail, and don’t ever be afraid to succeed.
[/av_iconlist_item] [av_iconlist_item title=’Stop making excuses’ linktarget=” linkelement=” icon=’ue8b9′ font=’entypo-fontello’] Successful people take control of their lives. Realising that you are responsible for what is happening in your life can be both intimidating and encouraging. Excuses prevents us from growing both personally and professionally. Own your life, no one else will do it.
[/av_iconlist_item] [av_iconlist_item title=’Stop thinking you know it all’ linktarget=” linkelement=” icon=’ue80b’ font=’entypo-fontello’] Some believe that success depends on talent and intelligence one is born with and cannot be changed. And that talent leads to success, without hard work. They are wrong.

Successful people know this and spend a lot of time and effort developing themselves, gaining new knowledge and gaining new experiences. Remember, the person you are today does not have to be the same as you have to be tomorrow.
[/av_iconlist_item] [av_iconlist_item title=’Stop believing in success over night’ linktarget=” linkelement=” icon=’ue8b2′ font=’entypo-fontello’] Success takes time. Successful people know that small, continuous improvements accumulate over time in order to ultimately yield the desired results. Plan for the future but focus on getting a bit better each day.
[/av_iconlist_item] [av_iconlist_item title=’Perfectionism’ linktarget=” linkelement=” icon=’ue868′ font=’entypo-fontello’] Nothing will be perfect no matter how hard you try. Fear of failure often prevents you from making decisions and delivering results. But you can miss many opportunities if you wait for things to be perfect. Stop being afraid to fail and dare to test your ideas. Get your creation out there and improve it as you go along.
[/av_iconlist_item] [av_iconlist_item title=’Give up multi-tasking’ linktarget=” linkelement=” icon=’ue856′ font=’entypo-fontello’] Effective multitasking is an illusion. What you really do is lose time switching the focus between different tasks. Successful people know this and choose one thing to focus on and then invest in it wholeheartedly. No matter what it is, a business idea, a call, a workout. Being fully present and devoted to his task is necessary.
[/av_iconlist_item] [av_iconlist_item title=’Let go of control needs’ linktarget=” linkelement=” icon=’ue826′ font=’entypo-fontello’] Some things we can influence, other things we cannot. Learning to distinguish between these two categories is critical. Focus on what you can influence. Sometimes maybe it’s just your attitude to something that you can control.
[/av_iconlist_item] [av_iconlist_item title=’Stop saying Yes to things that won’t help your career’ linktarget=” linkelement=” icon=’ue841′ font=’entypo-fontello’] Successful people know that in order to achieve their goals, they sometimes need to say no to certain activities and demands from friends, family and colleagues. Short term you might have to give up some of the fun, but when you reach your bigger goal, everything will be worth it.
[/av_iconlist_item] [av_iconlist_item title=’Say no to people that drain your energy’ linktarget=” linkelement=” icon=’ue863′ font=’entypo-fontello’] Who you surround yourself, you become. If you surround yourself with people who never take responsibility for their lives, always find excuses and blame others for their problems, your ability to achieve performance and success will also decrease. Conversely, if you surround yourself with people who are always trying to become a better person, whether you are living in private life or work, you will also be more successful. Take a look around you and see if you need to make any changes.
[/av_iconlist_item] [av_iconlist_item title=’Give up the need to be loved by everyone’ linktarget=” linkelement=” icon=’ue806′ font=’entypo-fontello’] Think of yourself as a market niche. There will be a lot of people that like that niche and there will be people that don’t, and no matter how you do you will never be able to cover the whole market yourself. Be who you are and focus on becoming better and giving added value to others every day.
[/av_iconlist_item] [av_iconlist_item title=’Stop wasting time’ linktarget=” linkelement=” icon=’ue862′ font=’entypo-fontello’] You only have one life and you owe it to yourself to see how far you can get. Everyone has 24 hours to spend per day. What we choose to do with that time is up to each and every one of us. Take control over your days and spend your time on things that matter.
