Programming Yourself For Success

The first step to success is for you to fully decide what you actually want to accomplish. What is it you desire? Are you aspiring to do satisfying work that will allow you to add value to the world? The following timeless tips will help you accomplish your true purpose on earth. These truths will help you to make the best of your life.

Value creativity because it will always trump book-smart.

This was why Albert Einstein said “Imagination is more important than knowledge”.

Those who innovate will rise above those who regurgitate.The greatest minds may not be filled with facts but they are loaded with creativity. The ease-of-access in the information age has eliminated any need for people who fill their brains with facts that could be discovered through internet search.

You don’t lose until you quit, so don’t quit.

“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent”. – Eleanor Roosevelt

The difference between winners and losers is simple. Winners keep moving forward no matter what trials they face while losers give up when they are hard pressed. Do not think that others have more powerful brain than yours. Do you really think successful people got where they are today by sheer luck? Do you think they achieved their ambitious goals overnight without setbacks along the way?   Do not feel inferior to any person. Do not see anybody to be luckier than you

Making speed your order is not wisdom.

“There is more to life than increasing its speed.” – Mahatma Gandhi

Do not be in a hurry all the time. Exercise your patience muscles by choosing to stand in the longest line at the grocery store leaving your house early so you can drive to work at a leisurely pace. The world will not end if you have to stand in line to wait for what you want or desire.

If you have not taken a stand then you have no right to complain

“Now, we must all fear evil men. But there is another kind of evil which we must fear most, and that is the indifference of good men”. – The Boondock Saints

You can only make a change when you are solidly standing for something. Complaining about the world’s ills on social media can do a lot to bring a change to the world. If you are truly upset by what you see as evil or wrong, do something about it. Join a movement or protest that you are passionate about. Write blogs or create videos that will mobilise people to your cause. Darkness can only be overcome when light is in action.

Be grateful for what is right in front of you.

“Life moves pretty fast. You don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it”. – Ferris Bueller

When was the last time you expressed gratitude for all of your blessings? As humans, we can easily take things for granted when we don’t pay attention. I’m happy and grateful that every day is another opportunity to improve myself. I’m thankful that I have a roof over my head, food on my table, a family that loves me, friends who care about me, the opportunity to write articles like this, an ability to express myself freely, a healthy body that can carry me throughout the world. The next time you are feeling down, grab a notebook or pull up a Word Document and make a list of the many things that you are grateful for. Make it a habit to always count your blessings one by one and you will be surprise all the good things God has done.

Sometimes, view yourself from the eyes of another.

“Sometimes you can’t see yourself clearly until you see yourself through the eyes of others.” – Ellen De Generes

Anytime there is tension between you and another person, take a moment to look at the issue from that perspective. This humble attitude will offer a fresh perspective that will help you avoid pointless arguments over nothing.

Place a Demand on life don’t merely expect from it.

“You can’t move mountains by whispering at them”. – Pink

You may be complaining about how unfair your situation is, other people are hustling hard in the direction of the better life they desire. Wishing with all of your might will do nothing to improve your life if you’re not willing to back up your words with monumental faith action.


March to the beat of your own drum.

“Conformity is the jailer of freedom and the enemy of growth.” – John F. Kennedy

Do not throw yourself completely to what others are doing. Getting caught up in the rule-book used by others neglects a key ingredient in the pursuit of success: you. Just because something worked for another person does not guarantee it will work for you. Be an innovator. Make your own rules that are relevant for your unique knowledge, skills, and abilities.
