8 Secrets of Success

Success or the pursuit of it is what drives a lot of people. But, have you ever wondered if there was a secret to success? Is there some trick or some shared quality that sets successful people apart from the rest of the crowd?

Success expert Richard St John interviewed over 500 of the most successful people in the world. In doing so, he has come up with a list of 8 secrets that are essential to success.

He compressed what is normally a two-hour presentation into this highly informative 3 minute TED Talk.

Watch the video here…

It started when Richard was asked by a teen – What leads to success? Feeling bad because he was not able to answer the question, he decided to ask some of the most successful people in the world the very same question.

So, 7 years 500 interviews later here is what he came up with.

1. Passion

They say, ‘Do what you love and you will never work a day in your life.’ The same goes for success, you need to follow your passion.

Freeman Thomas, says “I’m driven by my passion”. Do it for love they don’t do it for money. Carol Coletta says, “I would pay someone to do what I do”.

The interesting thing is if you do it for love the money comes anyway.

2. Work

You need to work hard if you wish to succeed. No one ever did well by taking the easy route.

St. John said that Rupert Murdoch told him that “It’s all hard work nothing comes easily, but I have a lot of fun.”

“Fun” may not be something readily equated hard work, but it’s true. Successful people have fund doing the hard work.

3. Good

In order to be successful, you have to be good at what you do.

Alex Garden says, “To be successful put your nose down in something and get damn good at it.”

There is no magic to becoming good at what you do. It all goes back to hard work and practice.

4. Focus

Norman Jewison said, “I think it all has to do with focusing yourself on one thing.”

You will never be successful if you have too many things on your plate. Decide what you want to do, figure out how you want to do it and focus on getting it done.

Achieving success is hard enough without you trying to achieve multiple goals at once. Do yourself a favor and focus on just one or two.

5. Push

David Gallo says, “Push yourself physically and mentally.” You’ve got a push, push, push. You got to push through shyness and self-doubt.

It’s not always easy to push yourself. There will be times when motivation is hard to come by, but don’t let that stop you.

6. Serve

Serving and giving back is important. In his talk, St John said, “Now a lot of kids tell me they want to be millionaires. The first thing I say to them it’s okay well you can’t serve yourself. You got to serve others or something of value because that’s the way people really get rich.”

Service makes you feel that you are part of something greater than yourself. It will help motivate you to be better at what you do. Giving and serving helps pave the way to your own success.

7. Ideas

Keep those ideas coming! Not every idea may be a good one, but never stop having them.

Bill Gates had the idea of building the first microcomputer software company. He acted on it and it has undoubtedly brought him immense success.

Richard says, “There’s no magic to creativity and coming up with ideas.” It’s true. You don’t have to force yourself to get great ideas, but if a good one comes your way, act on it.

8. Persist

Joe Krause says, “Persistence is the number one reason for our success”.

You got to persist to a failure you got to persist through CRAP which of course means:

C – Criticism
R – Rejection
A – Assholes
P – Pressure

Persist through all these and you are surely going to find success.

There you have it. Richard St John’s 8 Secrets to success. If you want to be successful, try these 8 out.

4 Powerful Ways To Build Unstoppable Confidence

“The only power that exists is inside ourselves.”

– Anne Rice

My friend, Lisa, suffered a serious blow to her confidence not too long ago.

She’s a mother of four, and her world got turned upside down after her now ex-husband cheated on her (with someone half her age, no less).

“I always thought of myself as someone who was poised and cool as a cucumber,” she says, “but after what happened, it crushed every confident bone in my body.”

Lisa added, “It really messed with my head for the longest time. I felt ugly on the outside AND the inside… and the feeling ran DEEP.”

“It wasn’t just about my looks, but also in terms of personality… and pretty much my overall worth as a human being.”

So, not only did Lisa have to deal with the sting of betrayal…

…but her self-esteem also took a deep nosedive.

But the good news is that after spending about a year and a half putting the pieces of her life back together, Lisa got her groove back.

“It wasn’t an easy road for sure, but I’m actually grateful I went through all of that,” she says.

Lisa realized that she had to rediscover her strengths and, more importantly, rebuild her self-confidence from the inside-out.

Today, she’s dating Matt, a fellow single parent that Lisa’s friends set her up with. She couldn’t be happier, and her kids absolutely adore Matt.

The Benefits of Being Confident

While not everyone has gone through what Lisa did, we’ve all had experiences that have done a number on our self-confidence.

But the great thing about it is that we can all start building the foundations of rock-solid confidence at ANY age.

And it opens up a world of benefits, such as…

  • Knowing how to stand up for yourself: a confident person dares to put their foot down when they realize they’re being mistreated.
  • Having the courage to take action: confidence also translates into the natural ability to get the ball rolling. While other folks are busy hemming and hawing, the confident ones make stuff happen.
  • Confidence = self-belief: another hallmark of being confident is knowing your potential… and doing everything you can to realize it.
  • Grace under pressure: Nothing says “sexy” more than keeping your cool in the face of adversity. When you’re up against formidable odds and still crushing it, that’s a sure-fire sign of authentic confidence.
  • Being insanely attractive: As Kirsten Dunst put it, “The real secret to total gorgeousness is to believe in yourself, have self-confidence and try to be secure in your decisions and thoughts.”

Now that we’ve covered the awesome perks of self-confidence, let’s get into HOW to cultivate this quality:

#1: Get Out Of Your Head

Getting stuck in the inner world of your thoughts is an insidious habit – and it’s the quickest way to tank your confidence.

And when you let that inner critic run rampant inside your head…

…it’s going to act like it OWNS the place.

So you have to take back your inner world by watching the quality of your thoughts.

You know what I’m talking about – it’s those little lies that your inner critic feeds you. And they usually fall under these main categories:

“I’m not good enough.”
“I’m such a bad person.”

These types of thoughts often surface when you mess up in some way – and you end up judging yourself harshly for it.

Furthermore, these ugly thoughts also come tumbling out when something terrible happens (like in Lisa’s case, for instance).

And what most women don’t realize is these two kinds of thoughts go hand in hand.

Once those feelings of inadequacy kick in (i.e., “I’m not good enough”) …

…then those “I’m a bad person” thoughts come in to finish the job.

The reason is that a lot of women have a moral attachment to their mistakes.

In their eyes, failing at some aspect of their lives (e.g., a work blunder or a failed relationship) means failing as a human being.

In other words, an underlying sense of SHAME keeps women trapped in a self-defeating mindset.

So the first step to breaking free from this mental trap is by harnessing the power of self-awareness – and, more importantly, acceptance.

And that brings us to our next point…

#2: Get Comfortable With The Uncomfortable

Now, that we’ve gotten to the root of a confidence-destroying mindset, its time to face those uncomfortable (and downright ugly) feelings head-on.

To do that, you need to ask yourself, “Where are these negative thoughts and emotions coming from?”

Spend some time to quietly reflect on these feelings. Then, write them down on a notebook.

Putting it down on paper makes those feelings less fuzzy and vague. Furthermore, it allows you to trace those feelings back to whatever caused them.

Again, this has to do with external circumstances and negative experiences – so this is where you should start digging.

(Now, there’s another process of “emotional digging” that I discovered which works WONDERS – and we’ll get to that soon…)

Once you’ve pinpointed the exact source of those dark emotions, you can start ACCEPTING them for what they are.

So this is about being aware of those feelings, observing them, and ultimately, making peace with them.

And the fantastic thing about this breakthrough is that it removes self-judgment from the equation.

Rumi, a prolific poet from the 13th century, described these negative thoughts as “temporary guests.”

And more importantly, he tells us to accept these “guests” with honor and gratitude.

This is the key to lifting yourself – and your sense of confidence – from the depths of self-loathing and shame.

 

#3: Build The Other Crucial Pillars of Self-Confidence

Ok, so aside from embracing those negative thoughts, you also need to upgrade the other areas of your personal growth.

After all, the more well-rounded you are, the easier it is to crush that inner voice of self-doubt.

Here’s how to get started:

  • Keep all electronics out of your bedroom: You probably know that the blue light from your phone or laptop screen isn’t doing your sleep routine any favors. But this is also about looking at a screen first thing in the morning to check your email or social media account.                                So this boils down to not allowing these external distractions to hijack your mind – and your ability to get things done during the day.
  • Be an agenda-setter: This is directly related to the point above. Sidestepping digital distractions allows you to set your intentions early in the day. When you set your most important goals for the day right out the gate (instead of diving right into your inbox or newsfeed), it gives you REAL power to make things happen.  Experts call this phenomenon the “Confidence Competency Loop”: the better you get at doing something (i.e., getting stuff done),  the more confident you become. And the more confident you get, the easier it is to get better at it. Lather, rinse, repeat.  So, when you remove the obstacles to taking action, you’ll get on the fast track to higher self-confidence.
  • Attend to your other needs: I’m talking about socially, intellectually, and health-wise.  Aligning yourself with people who share the same goals and values is a great confidence builder. In fact, renowned psychologist Abraham Maslo says that being part of social groups is a fundamental human need.  And it’s always a good idea to make time for learning new stuff, no matter what your interests are.  Your local library and the world wide web are a treasure trove of resources. Use them to upgrade your knowledge and skills – which, as you know, are building blocks of confidence.

Finally, regular cardiovascular activity boosts your endorphin levels AND improves self-image. And you’re also boosting your confidence levels just by knowing that you’re taking care of yourself.

#4: Train Your Brain

This, in my humble opinion, is the BIGGEST one.

By now, you’ve probably gathered that confidence is really about looking within.

And the best source of confidence comes from none other than your inner world. That’s why earlier, we covered the importance of “emotional digging.”

This gets to the root of a lot of things we take for granted – and that includes the inner depths of your subconscious mind.

You see, THIS is where those negative emotions and thoughts come from.

And while you need to embrace this part of yourself…

…it’s ALSO important to fill your subconscious mind with the right BELIEFS.

These beliefs don’t just shape the world you live in – but also define your reality.

So, when you plant the seeds of confidence deep in your brain…

…it gives rise to an honest-to-goodness, dyed-in-the-wool kind of confidence.

That means you won’t get easily rattled by criticism, negative circumstances, or toxic people.

Did Susan from accounting get that promotion, and you didn’t? No problem.

Did your friend drop down a couple of sizes…

…and meanwhile, you’re struggling to find the motivation to hit the gym and eat better?

Doesn’t matter.

What DOES matter is that you’re taking action and focused on your own growth – all without looking over your shoulder and comparing yourself to others.

THAT’S confidence – and everyone will see that.

And training your mind to withstand these external forces is easier than it seems.

3 Reasons We Get “Stuck” In Life - And How To Bounce Back Strong

“When we are stuck in a rut we are being invited to grow and expand.” ― Dana Arcuri

Alex is the kind of guy that everyone liked. He was always in between jobs and was always broke, but all his family and friends could only say good things about him.

His girlfriend, Kate, thinks that he is the sweetest guy in the world. However, she grew more and more exasperated with him over the years.

She loved Alex for his personality, but he always had trouble taking responsibility for his own life. As a result, Kate felt stuck in a situation where she always has to bail Alex out of trouble.

Things came to a head when Alex got into an accident. His car went off-road and into a ditch. But fortunately, he only suffered a few broken ribs and his leg was in a cast for 3 months.

The bad news was that it was actually Kate’s car, and Alex borrowed it so he could have a night out with his friends.

Needless to say, Kate was extremely upset.

But it wasn’t because of the car, but the fact that Alex’s irresponsibility almost got him killed.

She took care of Alex for the next several months, but she had already decided to break up with him by then.

So after Alex recovered from his accident, he had to take a long, good look at himself and the choices that he made.

This was when he realized that something had to change. It dawned on him that he was always going to be where he was if he didn’t do something about it.

How To Break Free From A Less-Than-Ideal Life

Like Alex, many people lose their direction in life and feel trapped.

You might have a fuzzy idea of the person you want to be - or the kind of life that you want…

...but you don’t really know how to make that happen.

This is where feelings of dissatisfaction come from.

But the good news is that you can, in fact, get out of the rut you’re stuck in - even if you feel the complete opposite.

If you feel like you can’t move forward in life, chances are it has something to do with the 3 following reasons:

Reason #1. You Don’t Know What You Want

Most people don’t realize that they could be so much closer to their ideal future if only they spent real time thinking about what that future actually means.

They only have a vague, nebulous idea of the things that they want. Without a clear idea of what to aspire for, those plans and goals will be just as half-baked.

And so, you need to have a well-defined idea of what your “Point B” is - a.k.a. Where you want to be...

...then work your way back to “Point A”, which is where you are now.

That means you have to have a well-defined “Point B” before you can start plotting your course towards that destination.

To help you with that, here are some questions that you can ask yourself:

It’s very much worth your while sitting down and answering these questions. Be as detailed as you can and describe any emotional details as well.

The clearer you can paint this picture, the better sense of PURPOSE you’ll have in your life!

And this is the perfect antidote to feeling “stuck.”

Reason #2. You Don’t Know How To Get It

A lot of people tend to just accept their situation and get used to feeling stuck.

This is often because they have been so beaten down that they felt like there’s nothing to do but give up.

They become desperate and think that there’s really nothing else for them to do. It’s like they are in an endless tunnel with no light to look forward to.

What they don’t realize is that they lack a solid plan to get out of the rut they’re in. That’s why they never achieve the escape velocity to overcome the gravity of their situation.

Worse, they’re afraid to come up with a plan in the first place. Treading water and staying afloat is a lot less scary than trying to move forward and fail.

But in the long run, “protecting” yourself from failure has far worse consequences than making a plan to get un-stuck.

Here’s a good way to get the ball rolling:

This is a bird’s eye view of the “getting what you want” process, but this is a great way to overcome your inertia and keep moving forward.

Reason #3. You’re Getting In Your Own Way

Here’s the other thing - you’re going to run into a lot of obstacles when trying to get from Point A to Point B.

But you probably know this already. If you feel stuck in some way, that’s a clear sign you’re having trouble overcoming those obstacles.

And the biggest reason people can’t move forward is that they avoid asking the hard questions.

As uncomfortable as it is to grapple with these questions...

...this is the best way to remove those barriers getting in your way of a better life.

That said, it’s worth asking yourself the following:

Answering these will give you good indicators or whether or not your mindset could use some tweaking.

This particular area is a HUGE sticking point that most people don’t bother to address.

They might know what they want and have a general plan in place. But if their own mindset is working against them, it’s going to be a very tough uphill battle.

How To Bounce Back And Rise Above Life’s Challenges

As for Alex, he wanted to bounce back from his situation. So, went through the process of figuring out what he wanted.

He was actually a great musician and played guitar in a band, but he’d let that part of his life slide. For the longest time, Alex wanted to get back into it by teaching young kids to play music.

But he’d always find some way to talk himself out of it. He convinced himself it was too hard and it was safer to just work the odd part-time job here and there to pay the rent.

Finally, he realized he needed a major mindset upgrade. It was the only way he could actually push through with his plans.

So as he put in the work to make his plans happen, Alex also tried something else.

He started looking inward and removed the unhealthy beliefs and negative thought patterns that were holding him back. When he figured out how to reprogram his mindset, everything began to fall into place for Alex.

And it was easier than he expected. Soon enough, he managed to get out of his rut and reinvent himself.

Bring Optimism into Your Everyday Life

How important is it really to be a diehard optimist? Isn't it true that you can't be positive about everything and that sometimes you have to just face reality?

This is a very interesting question because it actually gives a hint as to the importance of being an optimistic thinker instead of a pessimistic thinker.

The Question: Who Is More Realistic?

You might have heard the saying: "We don't see the world as it really is, we see it as we are."

In other words, whenever you are describing your view of the world, whether you're being optimistic or pessimistic, you're not describing the world as it really is--you're describing the world as you see it.

STOP NEGATIVE THINKING - It’s Time to End Negative Thought Habits, Master Your Thoughts and Have Lasting Peace of Mind!

So who is more realistic, the optimist or the pessimist? The answer is that both of them are creating their view of reality according to the way that they think.

This view of reality is influencing their beliefs, their actions and the results in their life.

The question isn't whether or not the optimist or the pessimist is more realistic, the question is what kind of a life do you want to live?

If you take on an optimistic view of the world and are always looking for possibilities to learn, grow and achieve what you want, that view of the world will shape your beliefs and your actions.

Naturally, this will lead to actions that will help you to make the most of every opportunity to learn, grow and achieve.

Of course, you could also take on the pessimistic point of view and see failures and negative circumstances as things to run from instead of as things to learn from and grow through.

You can see the pessimistic side and see nothing but hindrances instead of possibilities. It's all in how you process it.

If you're convinced of why it's so important to become a diehard optimist, let's look at some solid strategies for developing a persistently optimistic mindset. Here are the 3 Steps to Diehard Optimism:

Step#1. Look for Chances to Learn

Opportunities to learn are everywhere if you know where to look for them. For example, every failure presents an opportunity to learn and so does every negative circumstance which comes into your life.

Learning from these circumstances will keep you from repeating the same mistakes over and over and will help you to achieve the second principle of becoming a diehard optimist.

Step#2. Look for Chances to Grow

Growth is not an option in life, it's a certainty. The only question is whether or not you're growing into someone with a strong character or someone whose life is governed by fear and uncertainty.

The world around you is constantly moving forward, and you must continue to grow and adapt with it.

If you look at everything as an opportunity to learn, you can take what you learn and put it into practice in order to make yourself a better person.

The other option is to learn nothing or to take a pessimistic view and allow yourself to grow into someone who is fearful and timid.

The motivational speaker Les Brown once said that who you become in life is more important than what you do or what you achieve.

This speaks of the importance of growth and development of character, which is only possible if you treat everything as a learning experience and opportunity for growth.

Step#3. Look for Chances to Achieve

In addition to learning and growing, achievement is one of the most rewarding things which you can experience in life.

As long as you are focused on treating things as opportunities to learn and grow, achievement will always
come as a natural result. As this happens, your learning and growth will continue and you will achieve much and inspire others.

Here's a tip: Write these three steps to diehard optimism down on a notecard and carry them with you everywhere you go. Make them a consistent practice in your life until being optimistic becomes an unstoppable subconscious habit.

Would you like to accelerate your path to success? This track will help you how to get anything
you want out of life.

How To End Addiction Today

When you activate your subconscious, it’s going to do everything in its power to accomplish a goal, no matter what. - Dr. Steve G. Jones

Whether you’re dealing with an addiction to smoking, sugar, drugs, alcohol, gambling, etc., admitting that you actually have a problem is the very first step to overcoming it.

I know that it’s easier said than done but it CAN be done. The key is making that decision to quit.

There are so many ways to end addiction, but one of the most helpful things is through self-hypnosis.

Self-hypnosis is a powerful tool that helps curb your subconscious cravings. It helps your mind and brings about positive changes in your life.

Here are 6 of its Most Important Benefits…

#1: Redefine Yourself

It’s common for someone trying to overcome their addiction to say, “My name is _______, and I’m an addict.”

This is a harmful self-belief that distorts your identity and makes you weak.

This is why re-wiring your belief system is a CRUCIAL part of the recovery process.

With self-hypnosis, you can create a NEW identity that’s based on your strengths instead.

Once you’ve made this internal shift, you’ll have the power to leave behind the person you were before…

...and cultivate healthier habits along the way!

#2: Prevent Relapse

People fall back into their old habits because they haven’t properly dealt with emotional issues from their past.

Negative memories and other hang-ups don’t just weigh you down...

...They can also act as triggers that pull you back into the cycle of addiction.

However, self-hypnosis can be a tool to cut this toxic baggage from your life.

This is a powerful way to disrupt thought patterns that lead to destructive habits.

#3: Grow a New Brain

Did you know that you have the power to form new connections in your brain?

Researchers in neuroscience call this phenomenon as "Brain Plasticity."

Learning new information and introducing new habits creates new pathways in your mind (AND increase your grey matter!).

Listening to self-hypnosis audio tracks are an effective way to accelerate this growth process.

As a result, those old habit triggers will no longer have an effect on your new and improved brain!

#4: Detox Your Subconscious

Overcoming addiction can be challenging because you can’t directly access the part of your brain which drives your habits.

This is known as your subconscious mind, and you’ll find a lot of deep-seated fears, behaviors, and triggers in here.

With self-hypnosis, however, you can cut through those layers quickly and get to the core of your addictive behaviors.

Using powerful audio suggestions, you can “look under the hood” and clear out any toxic beliefs, feelings, and phobias (without consciously being aware of it!).

#5: Reprogram Hard-Wired Beliefs

People struggling with addiction feel trapped by their habits.

They believe that their behaviors are set in stone and there’s nothing they can do about it.

However, self-hypnosis can give you a brand-new perspective on this matter.

Listening to the audio tracks allows you to rewrite limiting beliefs, and that’s an important part of regaining your personal power.

And more importantly, you’ll remove feelings of hopelessness and regain the belief that you can, in fact, change for the better!

#6: Feel WHOLE Again

Did you know that the human brain wants to heal itself?

Neuroscientists have discovered that people are wired with the need for “integration” - especially for someone trying to overcome their addiction.

As such, your brain wants its different parts to work together in harmony...

...And your mind can use self-hypnosis as an instrument in this process.

Self-hypnosis opens up the innermost parts of yourself that are normally closed off to your conscious mind.

When you get in touch with your deeply embedded emotions and acknowledge them fully, that plays a huge role in feeling whole again.

My friend, Dr. Steve G. Jones is a licensed Clinical Hypnotherapist and he has developed specially-designed guided meditation tracks that will disrupt your thought patterns that drive intense cravings away.

If you’re not at peace with yourself, the world around you will never be a happy place to live.

So why not shake up your thought pattern, and make improvements in your life that will transform how you look, feel and think?

Here are 15 reasons why you aren’t feeling inner peace, and what you can do about them.

1. You Eat Junk Food

Studies have shown that processed foods don’t make you feel better in the long run, as they are full of sugar and carbs—leading you to have a sugar crash and deflate emotionally.

Focus on nutrient-rich foods that will enhance your energy level—berries, nuts, lean proteins, water throughout your day, and complex carbs.

2. You Focus on Mistakes from the Past

You’re not living your life in the present, because you’re too worried about what happened in the past.

If big mistakes were your fault, let go and accept what happened. Decide what you’ll do differently in the future.

If someone hurt you, accept it and move on—no pain is worth holding on to, as it will only affect your happiness, not theirs.

3. You Fear Things Will Never Change

Nothing lasts forever—from stress at your job to feelings and situations.

Focus on the timeline—if it’s hard now, realize and remember that it will not always be this way. This moment will pass, just like every other moment!

4. You Don’t Have a Self-care Routine

Taking care of others should happen only after you take care of yourself.

Focus on the morning—what can you do to nurture yourself?

Fueling up on water, sitting in silence and meditating, eating a wholesome breakfast, and spending some time setting goals and reflecting are all great ways to take care of yourself!

5. You Care Too Much About What Others Think

What others think and do has nothing to do with you.

Focus on your path and no one else’s in order to maximize your own happiness. Do what you love, and nothing anyone can say will bother you.

6. You’re Living in Your Comfort Zone

Do something that scares you (just a little bit!) every single day!

Try hiking outdoors if you’re used to running, or try exploring different career options—ones that excite you.

7. You’re Overwhelmed by Your Workload

All work and no play? This one is a major cause for depression, stress and feeling overwhelmed in general.

Peace is about feeling comfortable and happy in your own skin—focus on a reasonable work schedule, leaving you with at least one full day off a week, if not two.

8. You Don’t Get Outdoors and Exercise

Boost your inner peace with kayaking, sailing, jogging, walking, rock climbing—anything that will get you out of the house and into nature.

Focus on the smells, sights, and sounds of nature, and immediately have your energy and restored and life’s zest returned.

9. You Watch Too Much Reality-TV

Reality TV is mostly negative—cat-calling, gossip, and bad language. This doesn’t just bring a negative way of thinking into your life; it can influence you to act in similar ways.

Turn off the TV at least two hours before going to bed, and limit your TV watching to 2 hours a day—max.

Replace that TV-watching time with reading, getting outdoors, going out to eat, etc.

10. You Seek Perfection in Yourself and Others

Seeking perfection is setting yourself up for failure—it limits your ability to enjoy the moment at hand, and takes away from what could be, such as opportunities for what a relationship has the potential to become.

Focus on the good in people, places and things. Let whatever happens, happen.

11. You Haven’t Been Able to Forgive Yourself

Forgiveness is possible—anyone can be forgiven, as long as you forgive yourself first.

Focus on the ability you have to control the small things by taking good care of yourself every day and enjoying friends and family.

Set goals for the things you can’t quite control. Allow yourself time to grieve, then give gratitude for what you can control and let time do the rest.

12. You Seek Love, But Can’t “Find It”

When you want to be in love but are single, it can be frustrating—but all it takes is one moment to change it all around!

While you’re waiting for love, take control! Give yourself loving thoughts, and you’ll begin to attract love to your life.

13. You Take Things Personally

Nothing is personal, unless it comes from you.

For example, getting rejected by a publisher isn’t about you—it’s about them. Getting dumped by a lover is about them and even getting blamed by your boss is about them—it is about their expectations, needs, etc. …

Focus on what is personal—do whatever you need to do to make yourself content with who you are, and forget about the rest.

14. You Compulsively Blame Yourself

Blaming yourself has to do with dissatisfaction in yourself—so why do it?

Focus on the things you can control, such as your health and whether or not you meet deadlines at work, and focus on what you can realistically accomplish. Let the rest go.

15. You Don’t Take Action over What You Can Control

What things can you take action on that you haven’t?

Letting the world pass you by because you’re stuck not doing a thing? Take action, one small goal at a time.

Focus on taking one step (washing the dishes, taking out the trash, etc.) and then begin to aim for larger goals.

Inner peace is essential for a happy, fulfilled life.

Whether you want to become more settled in your own skin, feel better about your accomplishments or avoid the blame game inside your own head, these 15 tips will surely get you there.

Practice them regularly, and commit to thinking positive, self-affirming thoughts.

How Late Is Too Late?

Are you feeling that it might be too late to become who you want to be and to do what you want to do with your life?

Maybe you put off some things until the elusive "someday" in the future and that someday never came, or maybe you had too many things that you were interested in.

No matter what the cause, if you're feeling that it's too late to have what you really want, this article might be one of the most important messages you'll ever read ...

Age and Opportunity: Are the Two Linked?

Is there really such a thing as an age where opportunity moves on and you no longer have the option of doing what you want to do with your life? Yes, and that age is the age that you die at.

Until then, you'll always have opportunities to turn your life around, to have the financial success that you want, the relationships that you want, the career that you want (within reason of course, you might not become an Olympic gymnast at 72) and to leave your mark on the Earth.

Sure, these opportunities may not come in the same packages that they did when you were younger, but as long as you know exactly what you want, you'll be able to seek out opportunities to have it.

Then it's just a matter of taking action, whether you believe that it's "too late" or not.

Does this raise some doubts in your mind? If so, here are some things to consider:

Age Has Its Advantages

Many people never achieve their full potential until later in life because of the disadvantages of youth.

The most common of these disadvantages is intemperance, which is something that almost always steals opportunities away from young people.

For example, intemperance when it comes to spending money keeps many younger people from having the capital to start their own business.

It's not until they mature that they build the self-control to manage their money and create greater opportunities for themselves.

It’s Time To RISE ABOVE Life’s Challenges… And Radiate Resilience, Strength & Happiness!

There are many other examples of this, but the bottom line is that the maturity which you gain later in life can be a valuable asset when it comes to getting focused on what you want and using your resources wisely.

Another advantage of age is that you have time against you. Yes, this IS an advantage when you put it into perspective. Time is a lot easier to waste when you have an abundance of it ... as you do when you're young.

When you get older and begin to realize that life isn't quite as long as you thought it was, you build a greater sense of urgency and motivation grasps you and pushes you to get to work.

Finally, age does carry another advantage: the commonly held belief that the older you are, the wiser you are.

While this isn't always true, it does work in your favor when you consider that many young people are denied chances (by employers or potential customers) because of their age.

So while age might be considered a disadvantage, the reality is that your perception makes an enormous difference when it comes to the number of opportunities available to you.

So Where Do You Start?

The most important thing that you can do when it comes to getting a late start is to take your eyes off the past and to get to work right now--even if you're not ready to do so.

It's never too late, but then again, you're not promised tomorrow.

Yes, you might make some errors, but you'll learn from them, and when you do you'll be able to start again more intelligently because of it.

The worst-case scenario is that you'll fall flat on your face, but you'll never have to live with the pain of knowing that you never got started in the first place.
