1. Walk your own path
People like to judge other people. This can include our careers, and passions. This peer pressure can make you stray from the path you started to carve for your future. Don’t mind other people’s aspirations, don’t ever let someone else’s goals and dreams influence your vision of life. Person A wants to become a billionaire but maybe you want to become a trillionaire. It’s your path and you decide where it takes you and how long it takes you to see it through.

2. Don’t hesitate when you should act
There is an old Roman proverb that people often quote — “Carpe diem” — meaning “Seize the day”. More often than not, we fail to act due to lack of confidence or courage. It is better to be overconfident and fail then underconfident and seed because you will learn more from the process. This stop keeps us from moving forward and puts us in a cage of wondering what might have been, you need momentum and that comes from decision-making. Whenever you feel it’s time to act, act without knowing too much. No matter the outcome, you will end up smarter than before.

3. Good things don’t come easy
If you want to have a good life with a successful career, emotional satisfaction, and trustworthy friends you have to work hard, success is hard, however it is not an excuse to not succeed. Luck can take you only so far and the rest is entirely up to you, the amount of work you put in every day, and the ability to learn from your mistakes. Always be aggressively patient, work as hard as you can, fail and keep learning from your mistakes. Don’t think for a moment that someone else is going to fight your battles with the same vigor and devotion as you would.
