1. Often times in our life our dreams don’t show up in the package we thought they will show up in. When you were 10 or 15 years old you must have dreamt of something that will truly make your life. But many of us often take up a completely different path, initially thinking that you may end of not being successful by doing this but later in life you realise that it was your best decision ever to take that path. So sometimes we have to trust the process and have faith that everything will turn out to be blissful. Steve Jobs in his world renowned Stanford Commencement speech said, “You can’t connect the dots looking forward, you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future.You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.”
2. You can’t change the people around, but you can definitely change the proximity. Stay away from all those negative stuffs that haunts you which fills you with feelings of sadness, envy, jealousy and anger. Build your proximity with positive and powerful things that will help you hustle and work hard towards your goals. Use books as your proximity, read inspiring posts and articles that impacts your inner self, that adds value to your life.
3. In life, people matters, things don’t. The aim should be to serve and help others by your work. The intention should be firmly set on serving others, not on attaining things for yourself. But ironically you will find that you will own lots of things too but only if you serve people by the motive of service only. For example, today Apple is one of the largest and the most valuable company of the world because during Steve Jobs’ time as the CEO, earning money was never their first priority. Building great products that the world has never seen before, that will serve the consumers was their main business principle. It is this service principle only that has turned Apple into one of the biggest mega-giant brand on the planet.
4. You are robbing your brain of the good dopamine when you don’t celebrate those little victories and when you don’t celebrate those little progress, you are heading towards a place called burnout. You will lack energy and motivation to continue further. Many people always attach happiness with some mighty destination and don’t celebrate the progresses they make in the journey. Don’t think that celebrating those little victories will take away your drive to reach your ultimate target. Be grateful, enjoy and celebrate all those beautiful progresses you make in your journey to greatness.
