How to be successful
People often think that it's arrogant when you say that you are successful or want it to be. I've been reading/watching stories from people who are successful and how they became it and it inspires me a lot.
If you have a certain idea, if you want a specific job, if you have a goal,.. the number one rule is that you don't have to stop yourself. Go for it. Just because you could have the idea that someone else wouldn't appreciate it, can stop you for achieving that goal. Shame is like the devil in situations where you could be very successful but you didn't do it because you were too scared of other people's opinions. People will talk about you, especially at the beginning. They will laugh, they will ask all kinds of questions, they will give you weird looks,.. but you just have to get through this. There are people who are so close to being successful but then just stop because people were judging them. Why would you just let your dream fly away just because of someone else? Who knows, maybe they say these things because they are insecure about themselves? At the end of the day, it's their problem and not yours.
I think that it can help you to talk really enthusiast about it because a lot of people can appreciate this. When you show people that you are full of great ideas and that you are really excited about it, they wouldn't even have the chance to be negative. I truly believe that positivity is the key to get away with all the bad reactions. And whilst being so enthusiast, you will give yourself an extra boost and know why you are doing everything.
It's your dream, your future, your life. Don't let anyone hold you back on reaching the things that you want in your life. You have to be able to enjoy the process and do what you like the most. There will be a chance that you lose people because they don't allow you to be successful, but after all you actually don't need that kind of negativity.
The thing that I see by successful people is that they look at failures as a learning process. They don't just drop everything and quit, they look where it went wrong and what they can do so they wouldn't make the same mistake. There will be moments that you'll have to be selfish and do the things that is the best for you. You also can't compare yourself to others, everyone has another process in life so it's not even worth it.
When your life is getting to an end and you're looking back at how far you've come, you want to be proud and say that you did everything that you wanted or at least tried it. Times has changed, we are living in a world where the options are endless.
