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.

You Deserve To Be Happy

You deserve to be happy. You are here on earth to discover your true self, and to be happy. Happiness is a personal thing. Happiness is unique. What makes you happen will make another person sad. Happiness is not without suffering, pain, or challenges. Happiness is not pain free.

Happiness is responsibility, accountability, and discipline. If you want to be happy, focus on what matters to you, to your life, to your family, and to your community. Dedicate yourself to something bigger than yourself, your ego, or your career. As Hannah Arendt said, “Dedicate yourself to the good you deserve and desire for yourself. Give yourself peace of mind. You deserve to be happy.You deserve delight.” If you want to be really happy, take care of your mind. Don’t let your mind be poisoned by the negative thoughts that you let into your mind. Everything starts in the mind. A happy mind is a happy person.

Real happiness starts in the mind. According to the above quote, “Give yourself peace of mind.” A peaceful mind is a happy person. If your mind is not at peace, you cannot be happy. Because what you are experiencing outside is a reflection of what is happening inside. In other words, your mind controls your actions. Your mind control your behavior. Don’t let negativity mess up your mind. if you do that, your happiness will be at risk of contamination.

“A happy mind is a happy person.”

You deserve to be happy. Yes, you deserve to be happy. But it is not going to happen if you don’t take responsibility for your actions. WHY? Because responsibility is growth, and growth is happiness, and happiness is life. If you are not happy, you are not living. Pat Summitt said, “Accountability is the essential to personal growth, as well as team growth. How can you improve if you’re never wrong? If you don’t admit a mistake and take responsibility for it, you’re bound to make the same one again.”

“If you are not happy, you are not living.”

Accountability is important if you are to be happy. When you hold yourself accountable for your OWN mess, you will learn form it, you will grow in life, you will grow in wisdom, and you will know how to handle the same situation, if in fact, it happens again. You are here on earth to grow, to multiply, to add value to your life and to the lives of the people around you. To make your community a better community. But if you don’t take responsibility for your own mess, how do you expect yourself to be happy? I don’t know. Maybe you know. If you know, let me know, too.

You deserve to be happy! Period.
