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.

One of the reasons we live is to get things done. But to get a lot of things done in life, there are so many things that have to come together to make them happen. If you get this one thing right, you will reach your goal faster than you ever imagined possible.

“All successful people have a goal. No one can get anywhere unless he knows where he wants to go and what he wants to be or do.”- Norman Vincent Pearle

What is this one thing? Wherever you want to go in life, you need something to get you there. You can’t start going without this one thing. In order to do well in life, this is what you need to know: LEARN HOW TO SET SMART GOALS. Nothing else. If you master the art of goal-setting, you have mastered everything.

To move from point A to Point B, you need to have a plan. You need to have a goal. If not, you are not going anywhere. Even if you manage to go somewhere, you are not going to go too far. You need a goal to reach your destination.

“When it is obvious that the goals cannot be reached, don’t adjust the goals, adjust the actions steps.”- Confucius

Your goal is your road map. It is your plan that will get you to where you want to be. It is the plan that will move you from where you are now to where you want to be. In order to make this happen, don’t set goals that you can’t achieve. Set small goals, not vague goals. You must set a realistic goal for yourself. The people who are doing well are those who set great goals for themselves.

If you set great goals for yourself, there is nothing you cannot achieve in life. Set one for yourself, and commit yourself to making it a reality.
