It takes discipline to be super successful. Successful people understand the art of self-discipline. They understand that success is more than material possessions.

To be successful, here are four things that you should NEVER do:

Don’t fear anything.

“Do what you fear and fear disappears.”– Dr. David J. Schwartz

If you want to reach your destination, don’t let fear stop you. Fear is real. But don’t let it stop you. Find a way around it. Face your fear and it will go away. Acknowledge it, study it, walk past it, and keep moving toward your goal. No matter how scary, don’t let it stop you. If you allow fear to stop you, you will never achieve anything of value. Don’t let that happen to you.

Don’t live in the past.

“Don’t let yesterday take up too much of today.“- Will Rogers

Success is in the moment. Don’t dwell on your past mistakes, on your past failures. We have all been there. You are not alone. If you have not failed, then you have not done anything great. To fail is to succeed. If you don’t fail, you can’t move forward. If you want to move forward, you must be comfortable with mistakes. But don’t make it a habit of making mistakes that could have been prevented. If you can prevent a mistake from happening, prevent it. But if you cannot prevent it, let it happen. Learn from it, and move on. Yesterday’s mistakes belong to yesterday. Today is a fresh day for you begin everything again. Today is a new day for you to start again. Take advantage of it. Don’t let it slip away.

Don’t waste your time.

“Pay attention. Don’t just stagger through the day.”- Jim Rohn

Pay attention to how you are spending your time. This is the best currency you have to compete with yourself and others. If you waste your time, you are wasting your life. If you respect your life, you will respect your time. If you value your life, you will value your time. Time is life. Life is time. Time is money. Money is time. Pay attention to what is important, not to what is urgent. Spend more time with those things that will help you reach your goals. If you catch yourself wasting your time, stop it. Change your strategy. Because if you keep doing the same thing, you will keep getting the same results.

Don’t procrastinate.

“Never put off till tomorrow, that which you can do today.”- Benjamin Franklin

Procrastination is the number one problem that stops people from moving forward in life. It slows people down. It puts pressure on people. If you want to be successful, you MUST fight against this disease- procrastination. If you have something to do, don’t put it off until tomorrow. Start it today, not tomorrow. Start small, and you will enjoy the process.

Why People Don’t Like To Change What Is Bothering Them

It is easier to pretend that nothing is bothering us than to face the real story. We like to pretend that everything is perfect in our lives. Let us face it. Nothing is perfect in life.

It is better for some of us to push our problems aside than doing something to fix it. Even when we know the end results of what we are doing to ourselves, to our organizations, to our families, and to our communities. We still do it. The question is, “why?”

We don’t like to look in the mirror to see who we really are. But you can’t blame the mirror for showing the real you. That is the real you. If you don’t like the person inside the mirror, change it. Only you can do that. I can’t do it for you. It is your responsibility to change the person inside the mirror.

We don’t like to face our problems because we think they will go away by themselves. If you find yourself in such a situation, don’t beat yourself up. There is a way out: face it, and change it.

It takes courage to make change happen in life. But if we don’t change what we don’t like about ourselves, we are just going to keep struggling with the same devil. The devil is there. It is not going anywhere.

We are all going through something in life. We all have one or two things to fix. We want to get rid of it as fast as we can, but change takes time. Real change takes time. If you are going through something in your life, don’t pretend that everything is alright, when it is not. If you do that, you are deceiving yourself and the people around you.

If you want to change the thing that is affecting your life, take a bold step to fix it. The only way to solve a problem is to take action. ACTION CURES PROBLEMS. If you keep pretending that nothing is wrong, the thing will continue to bother you, and it will continue to affect you.

If you don’t want something to keep bothering you, you MUST bother yourself to take action to change it. If not, it will continue to bother you.
