I’ve found that people are not living a successful life not because they are not giving enough time in their work, but because they do not have a clear mindset to grow their potentials.
Most people are confused and wasting their time in doing the things that are not really important for their personal and professional growth.
Success is about to have a clear mindset. An unclear vision hinders success. If we’ve clear idea that what we have to do with our life, the process of becoming an expert artist would get easier for us.
Once you give all the answers to the questions I stated below, you can understand yourself in a better way. Examine your answers carefully. Take an hour to do this work. This one hour can save your hundred hours of disappointments.
Always remember what Giorgio Armani said, ‘To create something exceptional, your mindset must be relentlessly focused on the smallest detail.’
Question 1: What is the purpose of our life? Why do we exist?
Question2: What is our idea for the future? What we want to become?
Question3: How we are going to fulfil our vision? What are our strategies?
Question4: Are we confronting our resistances and walking towards our fears?
Question5: What is that one skill in our work that makes us different from the rest of the people? Are we constantly learning and developing that skill?
Question6: Where we are vulnerable? What can push us out of the game?
Question7: Is our education making us wise or we are just filling our mind and life with rubbish?
Question8: Where we were one year ago? How much we’ve changed? Are we up-to-date?
Question9: Are we meeting new people and making new connections?
Question10: Are we facing disappointments in our work?
Your Next Efforts Towards A Successful Life
The answers to the above question can tell us where we are standing now in the life. The most important thing people often avoid doing is commitments. We must understand that life cannot run on comments. Commitments are necessary.
The meaning of commitment is total involvement. Spend hours, days and years on yourself. Again and over again we are reminded by the leaders that the biggest victory is to conquer ourself.
I always ask people to keep paying attention where they are going. Many people are busy in changing the world. Make sure, you don’t start changing the people. Instead, set an example of an intense positive change in yourself before the world.
Sometimes, I just sit alone and ponder over the words of Mahatma Gandhi, ‘You must be the change you wish to see in the world.’
Wherever we are today is only because of our habits. One of the tremendous habits I’ve seen in most of the successful people is self-discipline.
Self-discipline is not only about scheduling the day and go along with it, but also it is to develop the patience in life. As Joyce Meyer once said, ‘Patience is not the ability to wait but the ability to keep a good attitude while waiting.’
Above all, we can’t go any farther if we are not passionate about the work we do. I use to spend more than 10 hours a day in learning new things and in crafting my art. It’s only because I love what I do.
If you ask me to do some other task that I’m not willing, I cannot even spend an hour on that duty. It’s all about our will-power; the sooner we understand the better it be.
