You have been reading all the articles on electrifiedmind.com and you know that you were born to achieve greatness.
Now, you must begin your journey (if you haven’t already). .
In this article, we are going to provide you some ways you can fast track your greatness. Fast tracking your greatness doesn’t mean that you will be successful overnight, but it does mean you will be doing everything you need to be doing to be “on the path towards greatness.”
Success has more to do with your daily habits than a monumental shift that propels you.
Here are some ways that we found helpful in accelerating our growth, we know they will benefit you as well:
Know you can: There is nothing someone else can do that you can’t do.
Know your goals: Set goals. You are the creator of your destiny. Define what it is that you want out of life and write it down. Write down when you are going to get it too.
Remind yourself of who you want to become daily
Trust yourself: If something feels right to you, go with it. It may or may not be the right thing to do, but you will be moving forward nonetheless. If it isn’t the right direction, you will know soon enough. Going in the wrong direction is better than not going anywhere.
Carry a shield: Do not allow people around you to merge their negative energy into yours. Be careful who you hang around with, if your shield must be extremely large, it will be really heavy. You won’t be able to hold it up! You’ll eventually lower your shield (from exhaustion) and be infected with negative energy – knocking you out of alignment. You shouldn’t be hanging around people who make you carry such a heavy shield.
Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the great make you feel that you, too, can become great – Mark Twain
Hang out with people who are smarter than you: If you are the smartest person in the room – you are in the wrong room. You are the average of the 5 people who you spend the most time with. You want to surround yourself with people who you can learn from. Einstein is dead – so, try to find somebody else.
Learn: Never stop learning. Read books and learn everything you possibly can.
Rest: Don’t neglect yourself in this category. You need rest.
Be grateful: The more you are grateful for learning, the more you will learn. The more you appreciate, the more you get.
Discipline: If you are going to obtain your goals, you will need to work towards them even when you are not feeling like it. This will take discipline.
Find a mentor: Here is a tip. Do not go “looking for a mentor.” If you are chasing your dreams and interacting with all the people you need to interact with to make your dreams come true – you will find a mentor. Remember that having a mentor is a two-way street – it is not a “take” relationship…it is a “give all you can give” relationship.
Dress for success: People aren’t supposed to judge you for the clothes on your back…but, they do! If you want to be taken seriously, then you need to present yourself as professional.
Believe in yourself: Belief without talent will take you farther than talent without belief.
If you immerse yourself in your self-development and utilize all the things we have mentioned in this article, we will see you at the top!
