1. Give Up On The Unhealthy Lifestyle
“Take care of your body. It’s the only place you have to live.”
— Jim Rohn
When you are ready to become a high performer, you will need to keep 4 things in mind:
1. Proper nutrition
2. Physical Activity
3. Proper Hydration levels
4. Proper sleep
Small steps, but you will thank yourself one day.
2. Give Up The Short-term Mindset
“You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.”
— Mae West
Successful people set long-term goals, and they know that these aims are merely the result of short-term habits that they need to do every day.
Successful people practice delaying gratification everyday. They deny themselves unhealthy foods so that they can have more energy throughout the day. So, their self-talk sounds like this- “I choose to eat healthier foods so that I can have enough energy to get things done”
3. Give Up Playing Small
“Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people will not feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine. It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone, and as we let our light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
– Marianne Williamson
If you never take great opportunities, or allow your dreams to become realities, you will never realize your full potential.
And the world will never benefit from what you could have achieved.
4. Give Up Your Excuses
“It’s not about the cards you’re dealt, but how you play the hand.”
― Randy Pausch, The Last Lecture
Successful people know that they are responsible for their life, no matter their starting point, weaknesses, and past failures.
Realizing that you are responsible for what happens next in your life, is both frightening and exciting. Excuses limit and prevent us from becoming our best self.
5. Give Up The Fixed Mindset
“The future belongs to those who learn more skills and combine them in creative ways.”
― Robert Greene, Mastery
In a fixed mindset, people believe that their intelligence or talent are simply fixed traits and that talent alone creates success — without effort.
Successful people know this. They invest an immense amount of time on a daily basis to develop a growth mindset, acquire new knowledge, learn new skills and change their perception so that it can benefit others.
Remember, who you are today is not who you have to be tomorrow.
