It is Choice, not Chance, that determines your destiny.
The decisions that you make on a daily basis are the building blocks of your reality.
Good Habits Are The Key To Success
If you want to emerge successful, you need to create habits that enforce ethics, discipline and persistence in your life.
Success is achieved through positive, constructive habits.
Failure is the result of negative, destructive habits.
When you get tempted to engage in destructive habits, ask yourself if the thing you want to do is contributing to your success.
If not, replace it with something constructive.
Patiently Pursue Your Goal
Everyone wants overnight success, but that's just not how the compound effect works.
The truth is, we have to be patient.
Maintain your vision, work towards your target and with patience, you shall ultimately achieve your goals.
...And a happy one. ☀️
Pair with action; knowledge without embodiment is useless
1. Atomic Habits, @JamesClear
“Every action you take is a vote for the type of person you wish to become.
No single instance will transform your beliefs, but as the votes build up, so does the evidence of your identity.”
2. The Daily Stoic, @RyanHoliday
“Never be so tied to your former acquaintances and friends that you are pulled down to their level.
You must choose to be loved by these friends and remain the same person or become a better person at the cost of those friends”
3. Navalmanack, @naval
“Seek wealth, not money or status.
Wealth is having assets that earn while you sleep.
Money is how we transfer time and wealth.
You will never get wealthy renting out your time.”
4. Turning Pro, @SPressfield
“Fear is the primary color of the amateur.
Fear of failure. Fear of success. Fear of looking foolish. Fear of underachieving.
The amateur fears that if he turns pro and lives out his calling, he will have to live up to who he really is.”
