One of the easiest ways to get inspired and to live a great life is to always learn from other successful people. Anthony Robbins says, “Success leaves clues”, and it is true. What you want to achieve in your life has been accomplished by someone else. If you want to be a great author, there are many best-selling authors out there you can learn from. If you want to be a great athlete, there are many great role models you can study from. Therefore, all you need to do is to learn from successful people what they do, and do them. Of course, study their failures as well and never repeat them.
Here are 7 golden quotes to help you learn from successful people. Understand the principle behind these quotes and apply them to your life today…
1.) Will Smith: “The first step is you have to say that you can.”
No matter what you want to accomplish in your life, the very first thing you must do is to believe that you can do it. If you do not believe that something is possible to you, would you put in your full potential and do it? I don’t think so.
Learn to believe that it is possible for you to achieve your dreams. While there is no guarantee, but it is possible. When you truly believe that your dreams are possible, you will be able to tap into your inner potential and do great things.
Most of the time people give up because they lose faith that they don’t see their dreams as possible anymore. Never let this happen to you. Tell yourself you can and you will.
2.) Steve Jobs: “Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do.”
Steve Jobs is right when he said that our work is going to fill a large part of our lives. Think about it; we wake up every weekday, and we spend most of our daytime working. And by the time we get home, it’s time to go to sleep.
So, choose to do great work, because it will take up a large portion of your life. The only way to do great work is to have an intense passion for it. When you study the lives of all successful people, you will see that they all love what they do. They have an intense passion for their work. They are willing to work longer, stay later and put their maximum effort into their work. So it’s no wonder that they are successful. You have to be the same. Find the passion in your work. If you still can’t find it yet, don’t settle and follow your heart.
3.) Bruce Lee: “I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times.”
Bruce Lee is truly the master of martial arts. You can learn from successful people such as Bruce about staying focused with his philosophy. If you want to create amazing results in your life, you must focus and improve your skills and your knowledge. You must become the expert in your industry. Many times people jump from one industry to another because they think that the opportunity is no longer there.
In fact, an opportunity is everywhere; you just need to learn to become the best in what you do and success will come to you. It is not that whether you should venture into online marketing or real estate, every industry can make you a lot of money, it just whether are you the best to command the highest pay.
So focus and practice in your ‘kicks’ like what Bruce Lee mentioned. Become the best in your industry and you will see remarkable results.
4.) Martin Luther King: “If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.”
Something to learn from successful prole is that success will never come to you without action. Action is the bridge connecting your dreams and your reality. Thus, without action, you can never make your dreams a reality.
You must commit to taking action every single day. You must do something that will move you toward your goals each day. If you take 5 small actions a day, you will be achieving 1825 small victories in a year. Can you imagine how powerful this can be? You do not have to go out there and do big things. Success starts small, and you should build from there. It is what you do every day that counts.
5.) Thomas Edison: “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.”
In the process of chasing your dreams and reaching your goals, you will go through setbacks and failures. However, never let these get you down. You have to understand that failure is the mother of all successes.
If you have never failed before, you will never learn and never know what works best for you. Failure is essential to success. The more successful you are, the more failures and setbacks you will have to go through. Take failures as lessons and use them to grow yourself, to bring you to the next level and to catapult your success further. Whatever you do, never give up.
6.) Aristotle: “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.”
If you adopt great habits, they will help you and bring you to what you want. If you adopt lousy habits, they will make your life miserable. Success will never come to you overnight. It takes time to grow a multi-million dollar business. It takes time to practice and train before you can go to the Olympics. Thus, success requires time. Because success needs time, it is your habit that will determine your success.
People who have accomplished outstanding success are not successful because of a single decision or a single action they took. It is because of what they do consistently, day in and day out. It is their small success that accumulates and compounded into huge breakthroughs. Hence, adopting the right habits from now on. Get rid of all the habits that are not helping you such as watching excessive TV, surfing the internet for hours, etc. instead, make it a habit to learn each day, to review your goals and to take action.
7.) Helen Keller: “Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all.”
Always be willing to take the leap of faith. Life is short, and you should learn to live your best. You do not want to live a life full of regrets. Live a worthwhile life that you will remember. Follow your hearts, discover your passion and chase your dreams. If you want to be a great writer, be a writer. If you want to travel the world, make plans and do it. If you want to start a successful business, you can do it.
It is not going to be easy, but you have to find out what will make it worth it. As long as you are committed and determined, you will eventually reach your goals and live your dreams.
