The main secret of success is to allow yourself to be successful, to push the boundaries of your capabilities. How can we push the very limits that we have in our heads?
- Define your fears.
In order to fight something, you need to understand what it is. When you become aware of your fear, it is definitely easier to deal with. There are three ways to respond to fear, but the wisest is to take a step towards it. For example, you are afraid of being left without money. Well, stay and see that nothing terrible happens. Truth. Or you can overcome this fear this way: go to the city and not take a penny with you. Yes, you may have to ask passers-by for money on the way back, but there is nothing criminal or terrible here. Or, for example, you are afraid that someone will "think badly of you." So let him think, and you will see that life does not end there.
- Force yourself to put in the extra effort, even if it seems impossible.
Sports coaches have such a thing as "overcompensation". This is the moment when a person's muscles, receiving maximum tension, only become stronger after training. Notice what many sports coaches say: “Only when your body starts to hurt from exertion, only at such moments do you get the effect of training.” It's exactly the same in life. If you put in a little effort, you get little results. Even 95% effort is not enough. Only 100% of efforts will bring the result you want. If we want to be successful, we need to do more. Much more.
- Don't worry about what others think.
The polls are striking in one fact. 98.7% of people at least once a week make decisions based on what others think of them. Many of us too often depend on the opinions of others to take action and move on our own. Are you ready to sacrifice your future and your present brilliant destiny because of what stupid critics might think of you? In most cases, criticism is just envy of someone else's success. Our feelings are arranged like this. If we really want something, but for some reason we forbid it to ourselves, a strange thing works. We begin to hate the object of desire. That is why many people criticize and dislike rich people. In their hearts, they just want to become as rich as they are.
- Don't look for the easy way.
Not taking the easy way out doesn't mean deliberately creating trouble for yourself. This means not trying to choose the easiest thing just because it is the easiest. It is better to choose your real but hard path than the easy but unsatisfying one. The real challenge is to move along the path, even knowing that many failures and falls are guaranteed ahead of you. But failures and victories are inextricably linked, and one is inseparable from the other. Be courageous. Choose paths full of experience.
- Doubt everything.
Many of us fall into the trap of omniscience. Face it: First of all, you can't know everything. Secondly, many things that we are told about can and should be questioned. They say truth is born in a dispute. But it's not. Truth is born out of self-doubt. In addition, sometimes we are afraid to look stupid, so we are afraid to admit that we do not know something. Pushing the boundaries of possibility means seeing the situation for what it is and questioning it. You could say it's the ability to challenge reality. "No" is not a sentence. This is just an opinion. You can do anything!
