Success isn’t an accident. Success certainly doesn’t come easy; it’s something you have to actively work towards every day, even when you do reach the top. Here are 10 things you should absolutely be doing if you want to be successful.
Put your blinders on
Do you know what blinders are? They’re a little gadget commonly used with racehorses so they can’t see what is behind them or next to them. They can’t worry about things that way, and you shouldn’t either. Specifically, you need to stop caring about what people think of you and whether they like you or not. I can count right now on both hands the number of people that I know don’t like me just off the top of my head and you know what? I don’t care.
People’s opinions don’t pay your bills. People liking you or not won’t help you to succeed, because the reality is you will never be everyone’s cup of tea. Don’t worry about it. Don’t lose sleep over it. Don’t compromise who you are, because if you try to please everyone, you’re going to end up being forty-seven different versions of yourself and none will be true to you. The sooner you stop caring, the sooner you get ahead. Put your blinders on.
