Always work hard because at the end of the day the good ole saying goes, hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work. Think about the professional athletes and professional musicians. They didn’t get there because they had an unhuman-like talent. Their talent would not be anything without the hard work they put in day in and day out.
Create your opportunities where opportunities become present.
Never make excuses to not move the needle forward towards your goals each day.
It is important to be innovative, and stand out within your niche. In 2020, there is more competition than ever because of how much exposure one person can obtain through social networks alone. There are likely thousands of people doing exactly what you are doing making it important to be innovative, and to be looked at as the authority within your industry.
Be honest. Never lie to get yourself out of a situation. It is always best to be honest with the situation, as the other person is likely to be more understanding. Honesty is a facet of moral character that connotes positive and virtuous attributes such as integrity, truthfulness, and straightforwardness which will only help you stand out within your niche.
Always help others where you can, life doesn’t have to be about chasing the next dollar. Sometimes the next dollar comes from helping someone. You never know what that person has or who that person knows, but helping someone is always going to leave a positive impact from your interactions.
Respect your competition, and be grateful that they have helped you create value within the marketplace. It is important to honor their work, but at the same time to make sure you are putting in more work, and creating more value than them.
Be thankful for where you are and the journey you have endured to get to the point you are currently sitting at. Expressing gratitude towards the little things that we have is important. The relationships, the hard times, and the accomplishments is key to the longevity of your success.
It is important to be humble, and never forget where you came from. Embrace the journey you have gone through. Carry yourself the same way you do when you chat with a multi millionaire as you would when chatting with a janitor.
