You hear it all the time: “If only I had the chance to go back and make different choices.” Of course you can’t, and dwelling too much on what happened yesterday means you’re not focusing on what you can accomplish tomorrow. Don’t let yourself get distracted by what you can’t control. Instead, focus on these eight important things that will help you achieve your vision of success.
Important people in your life will come and go. And that’s okay.
Not all relationships will last forever. And, frankly, not all of them should. It’s a fact of life that sometimes those closest to you will become strangers overnight. Conversely, strangers will often become the most important people in your life just as quickly.
You have to ask yourself, “Am I spending time with people who believe in me, and push me, and want me to be the best version of myself that I can be?” If they’re not, then you’re probably not surrounded by the right people. Successful people surround themselves with success-minded people.
Your diet is more than just what you eat
As you get older, you begin to realize that your diet is more than just food. Your diet is everything that you consume. It’s everything you watch, read about, spend your time thinking about,talking about, and focusing on. It’s even the people you spend time with and how you spend that time with them.
If you want a healthy mind, body, and spirit, then you need to limit the junk you consume. Healthy choices lead to healthy actions, healthy actions lead to healthy outcomes.
In order to make yourself happy, you’re going to let people down
Your mental health is more important than money, a career, or other people’s opinions.
You can’t be everywhere at once. You can’t please everyone all of the time. And you can’t sacrifice your mental and physical well being for the sake of others’ expectations. Sometimes, you’re not going to be able to make an event. Sometimes your choices are going to let down your family members. But if you really want to be successful in life, you can’t compromise the importance of taking care of yourself. Only then can you truly take care of others.
Never let rejection lead to self-rejection
Experiencing rejection leads to a fear of rejection, and a fear of rejection leads to a person who limits their experiences. When you limit your experience through broken beliefs, you limit yourself.
Instead, focus on what you can learn from moments of rejection, and use those lessons to inform your new experiences. Keep moving forward.
Own your responsibility to yourself to control your future
You’ll never control your future if you let your past control you.
You have an opportunity to break the cycle of hurt,fear, and frustration you’ve faced from past trauma. Breaking the cycle transforms yourself so ou can prevent those closest to you from experiencing this hurt.
Accept personal responsibility for what happens today and tomorrow.
Quality over quantity
Your life is about the quality of the experiences you have. A hundred acquaintances aren’t worth the value of one close friend. One incredible experience is worth far more than countless drunken nights.
Really consider how you spend your time. Place value on what you’re doing and who you’re doing it with. Make the most of those moments.
Fairytales will always make you unhappy
Your life isn’t “supposed” to be going in some specific direction at some specific time. You’re not supposed to be married at a certain age or a parent at a certain age. Things happen at different times for different reasons.
What’s important is that you’re focused on creating the version of success in your life that you have chosen. Stay focused. Be clear about what you want to accomplish. Take that path andremember that everyone’s journey is different. Don’t measure your success against the success of others.
Fun is yours. And it’s yours to define for yourself.
You deserve to enjoy life, your life, in the way that is fun to you. You don’t have to subscribe to someone else’s idea of fun. You’re just wasting your valuable time fulfilling a dream that isn’t yours. Think about what you care about and what you love spending your time doing, and do those things. You’ll have a much more fulfilling life because you’re being true to yourself.
