Have you defined what it is you're looking for and what you're going after? A lot of people go through life without ever thinking through what they want.
You know how to deal with hardship. You persevere. If someone throws an obstacle in your way you find a way around it. You find a way over it, under it, you knock a hole right through it.
Do you absolutely LOVE what you do? I know I love what I do here at Real Men Real Style. Not long ago I was having trouble choosing a watch, and a wise man told me:
There IS scientific evidence that wearing a watch gives you the edge. A 2015 British study in the journal Peer J found that if you wear a watch you are more conscientious and more likely to be on time.
You put in the effort. You don't shy away from waking up at 6 o'clock in the morning on the weekends to get in that extra hour of study.
You don't blame others. You don't pass the buck. You don't ask anyone to make your decisions for you.
Anyone who's started a company or taken on a worthwhile project knows you're going to stumble and fall. But that's all on the path to success. Next time, you're going to be successful.
You dive into books, online courses, audiobooks… there are so many ways to continue to learn. I hate reading, but I devour audiobooks while I'm traveling or doing chores.
So many times people get overconfident. They think, ‘I had great success in this one business, therefore I'm an awesome business person.'
That guy who's written a book and he won't come party with you because he wants to stay home and reread it? He's crazy about this. Are you CRAZY about what you're doing?
