Key idea 1 of 10

Enough complaining, no more excuses: You are responsible for the course of your life.

Are you ready to ditch your unfulfilling daily routine and start living your dream life? Then let’s get started!

The first thing you need to understand on your journey to personal and professional success is that you are the director of your own life.

When we fail, we often look for an excuse, blaming the failure on things that happen to us. But how these events affect us in the long run depends on how we respond to them.

Imagine one circumstance where you receive $400. You could buy something nice for yourself, or invest the money in a mutual fund.

If you opt for the former, you have no money left. If you choose the latter, you have made an investment on which you can later build and earn even more money – a much wiser decision.

So if you want to start seeing improvements in your life, you need to change your responses.

It’s far too easy to just complain about your circumstances. But if you pay more attention to how you’re living and the choices you’re making, you’ll soon see whether you’re on the right path to success.

For instance, you’re either fit or out of shape. Ask yourself, what are you doing – or not doing – to make your body this way?

If your goal is to lose weight, you’ll need to be aware of your daily calorie intake and your level of activity. Be honest with yourself: Do you eat well? Should you cut out chocolate or junk food?

No one says that change is easy. It requires discipline, persistence and some experimentation. In the next blink, you’ll find out how to get a good start on changing your life.
