- Be Selective
Don’t say yes to everything. Be selective by cutting out non-essentials. You should practice this every day. Sometimes you might have to say no to an amazing opportunity too, but being selective and simplifying is the key to becoming very successful. This might seem foolish in the short-term but will prove to be a wise decision in the long run.
- Get adequate sleep
It is a myth that not sleeping and working all night will increase your productivity and make you very successful. To become very successful you need adequate sleep and rest. It is important to practice and work hard but sleep in also necessary. Lack of sleep will decrease productivity rather than increase productivity.
- Be Creative – Play
Let your creative juices flow. Play around with ideas till you hit jackpot with something innovative.
- Listen before jumping to a conclusion
Listen, Listen, Listen!
We tend to jump to conclusions, before completely listening to what the other person has to say. Successful people listen carefully to what is being said and get to the real story. They know how to read between the lines and understand what is not being said.
- Don’t compete against others. Play on your own strengths.
Rather than focusing on what others are doing, and competing against others, successful people play on their strengths, they play their own game.
