12 Lessons To Learn From Highly Successful People


12 Lessons To Learn From Highly Successful People
“The only work that will ultimately bring any good to any of us is the work of contributing to the healing of the world.” Marianne Williamson Success can mean different things to different people, and I noticed that many of us have some kind of resistance to the word success, even though deep down inside, that is exactly what we all want, to live a successful and meaningful life. Observing the world and from reading the stories of the many great men and women that lived and still live on this planet, I noticed that many of the highly successful people are in a way or another living by the same set of “golden rules.” Today I will share with you a few of the lessons we can all learn from these people, as I am sure many of us will find them very empowering, helping us live a more inspiring, balanced, happier and successful life. Ready? Let’s start: 1. No Dream Is Too Big You should not limit yourself to aspire on achieving only those things that seem realistic or possible, because many of the things that today exist and are possible are so because of those “crazy” people who dared to dream big and make the impossible possible. So why not be one of them yourself? “We grow great by dreams. All big men are dreamers. They see things in the soft haze of a spring day or in the red fire of a long winter’s evening. Some of us let these great dreams die, but others nourish and protect them; nurse them through bad days till they bring them to the sunshine and light which comes always to those who sincerely hope that their dreams will come true.” Woodrow Wilson 2. Listen to Your Heart and Intuition We come to this world with our work already in our heart and by listening to our heart and intuition, we will find bliss and we will live a successful life. The person who said it best is no other than Steve Jobs: “Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” Steve Jobs 3. Seek Balance “I believe that being successful means having a balance of success stories across the many areas of your life. You can’t truly be considered successful in your business life if your home life is in shambles.” Zig Ziglar 4. Pay Little or No Attention to The Naysayers Another great lesson that you can learn from these people is the importance of self belief and self trust, for there will be so many people who will try to stop you from walking your path, and if you personally don’t believe in yourself and the power of your dreams, chances are that you will give up and you will become one of the many people out there who complain about how hard life is and how nothing seems to work for you. “Dream and give yourself permission to envision a YOU that you choose to be.” Joy Page 5. Take The Path Less Travelled Dare to take the road less traveled, for only this way you will achieve great success in all areas of life, dare to leave the tribe. “Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.” Ralph Waldo Emerson 6. Gratitude Attracts More of The Things You Want In Life No matter how far you go in life, always remember to express your gratitude and appreciation for what you have and where you are, for all the amazing people that are present in your life, for all the lives you transformed and empowered just by doing the things you deeply believed in, and for staying true to yourself. “Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.” Oprah Winfrey 7. Success is a State of Mind It all starts in the mind and if you want to be successful, you have to feel it and act like it already happened. A good way to understand this is to think of those poor people who win the lottery and who, because of their scarcity mindset end up losing most of those money in a very short period of time. Why is that? Well, they do have the money but not the mindset… “Success is a state of mind. If you want success, start thinking of yourself as a success.” Dr. Joyce Brothers 8.You Don’t Have to Know Everything No matter how much you learn, no matter how much you grow and no matter how successful you will become, there will always be things that you won’t know, and that’s perfectly fine, it’s normal. You don’t have to know everything. With all your money, you can now surround yourself with all kind of great minds that will know what you don’t know, helping you to fuel your dreams and visions and to have things happening the way you want them to. “All our knowledge brings us nearer to our ignorance.” T. S. Eliot 9. Be Present In All That You Do Live in the present moment, enjoy life, stay focused and engaged, appreciate what you have while at the same time keeping an image in your heart and your mind of where you want to go. Love yourself and love your life. “Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.” Buddha 10. You Already Have Enough We need to understand that constantly chasing after the next big thing, chasing after more and more, will make us feel like we are lacking. This is poverty thinking. Wanting more and more comes from a feeling of not having. Start showing your appreciation for all that you are, for all that you have, because in this moment, you do have enough. “When I chased after money, I never had enough. When I got my life on purpose and focused on giving of myself and everything that arrived into my life, then I was prosperous.” Wayne Dyer 11. Giving is Receiving This is available not only for us as individuals, but also for us as communities, big corporations, nations, etc. If you have read “From Good to Great” by Jim Collins you already understand what I am talking about, and if you haven’t you might want to read this book as you will probably get a lot of insights out of it. The more we give, the more we will receive. Where great value is provided, success will always follow. With an open heart, share everything you know with others. Give the best of yourself to the world, let your own light shine and know that: “In today’s environment, hoarding knowledge ultimately erodes your power. If you know something very important, the way to get power is by actually sharing it.” Joseph Badaracco 12. Humility As you will walk your path making all of your dreams come true and achieving really beautiful things in life, humility will definitely be a lesson you will master and people will love that about you. There is nothing more gracious and noble than seeing somebody who is really successful as being humble and modest. “Do you wish to be great? Then begin by being. Do you desire to construct a vast and lofty fabric? Think first about the foundations of humility. The higher your structure is to be, the deeper must be its foundation.” Saint Augustine    * If you feel like any of your family members, close friends or people you love can benefit from reading this list, feel free to share it. Wisdom never decreases by being shared.
