1- There is no magic pill. Do not look for shortcuts in life.
There is no success story overnight. There are no shortcuts for success. The only exception is when you have a mentor that guides you through this road. Patience is the key to success.
2- Follow your passion.
Nature has an elegant and sophisticated design based on biodiversity. Biodiversity increases the resilience of the system towards change and is essential for having a functioning and forward-moving society. Successful entrepreneurs are aware of this and follow topics that are deeply connected with their interests.
3- Understand yourself.
Having a direction in life is very crucial for success. Otherwise, you will be like a boat that drives around purposelessly. You will have direction only if you understand yourself.
4- A philosophy for your business.
Many people get to business only to make money. If you have a good philosophy for your business that adds value to society, money follows you.
5- Look at obstacles and problems as an opportunity.
Do not forget to smile at the problems. They are a real teacher for you. As Friedrich Nietzsche said, “Whatever that does not kill you will make you stronger.”
6- Focus and meditate.
There are numerous distractions in modern life. Having a laser focus helps you to become more efficient. Stoicism helps you to have a tranquil mind. Only think of things in your life that you have the power to change. There is a book called “Power of one thing: How to intentionally change your life” by Randy Carlson that explains this concept.
7- Do not be a perfectionist.
Idealism and perfectionism is the greatest enemy of success. One of the greatest success stories of entrepreneurship is Amazon by Jeff Bezos. Amazon started as a company for selling books and gradually increased its ability to sell everything.
8. Try to break big things down into smaller parts.
This will help you to have a better view of the subject and make it easier for you to manage.
For building a big mansion, you need to start from bricks. Entrepreneurs that build on their business one step at a time will get to experience success.
