Do not confuse a wish list with an action list
Many people have a great idea of what they want: a big beautiful house or an apartment with an attic, a luxury car or even a whole fleet of cars, a prestigious job with a high-paying position, or their own successful business.
This is your wish list, not your action list. It will remain a list of unfulfilled desires if you do not make a plan for how you can achieve it.
The American businessman Robert Toru Kiyosaki wrote in his book Rich Dad Poor Dad that one thinks, “I can’t afford it,” while the other thinks otherwise, “How can I afford it?" Make a written list, a plan of certain actions, as a result of which you can achieve success.
The wish list will only start to be fulfilled when you complete your list of necessary actions to achieve career growth, develop your business or advance qualitatively in a certain area.
The presence of talent is not enough for success
The world has seen many talented people at the bottom of the social ladder, and remained unrecognized. Why is this happening? Perhaps the world and society is unfair to them?
Almost always, the fact is that many gifted people consider having one talent sufficient for success. You will not be helped and pulled until you yourself take the required number of correct steps.
Laziness destroys talent. True hard work and perseverance is practically the only reason for the rise of successful talented people.
Take a step towards success
When nothing happens in life or only negative things happen, then it is necessary to take a step.
Leave the comfort zone you are currently in in search of a different, much better life. At first it will be harder for you, but movement is necessary for cardinal success and achievement of something new.
The old comfort zone protects you and creates a sense of imaginary security. But then why are you dissatisfied with life, why are bumps and other troubles pouring? Time to take a step?
Don't bury your failures
“Texans don't bury their failures. They are inspired by them. They take their failures and turn them into calls to action. Failure inspires Texans to become winners." Robert Toru Kiyosaki
Every mousetrap has a way out. It is necessary to correctly understand what happened, assess the reasons for the failure and decide how to get out of it. You should not give up, past failures are your incentive.
Financial literacy is essential for success
"If you want to be rich, you need to become financially literate." Robert Toru Kiyosaki
Most people don't understand finance well. People take loans they don’t quite need, spend money on liabilities instead of assets, make the wrong decisions at the wrong time.
Schools do not teach how to manage money, and then people spare time and money for their financial literacy. People live in poverty or average, not understanding the reasons for their present precarious financial situation. While only a dozen books, courses or trainings can change their lives for the better.
Don't work for money
“The poor and the middle class work for money. The rich make money work for them." Robert Toru Kiyosaki
While you are working for another uncle, he will take all the profits for himself. Money shouldn't be the only reason to work.
Even if you have little money, turn it into a source of income, buy shares, valuable shares, invest in business. Buying a car, an apartment, luxury items, you turn them into a liability. These items do not bring you money every month, you can get money from them only by selling them. And that probably cost less.
IQ level is less important than general intelligence
General intelligence is not only IQ level. There are many smart people who are emotional and social outcasts.
The ability to live in society and interact with it is one of the principles of success.
Sometimes it is necessary to take risks to succeed
“Most people never win because they are very afraid of losing. The school is to blame for this. School teaches us that mistakes are bad, we are punished for making mistakes. But if you look at the root of things, people learn from mistakes.” Robert Toru Kiyosaki
To be successful, sometimes you have to take risks. There are no guaranteed methods to get rich or succeed. Many are afraid to take risks for fear of failure and therefore never succeed. Reasonable risk is a chance to get ahead.
Success comes to those who are confident in their abilities
"Do what you think is right in your heart, but no matter what you do, you will still be judged." Eleanor Roosevelt
The opinions of others and the obstacles they put up can deprive you of the chance to succeed. To achieve the goal, you need confidence in yourself and your abilities.
Do what you think is right, even being ahead of everyone, you will hear reproaches and distrust more than once. Even the youngest billionaire, Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Facebook, the world's largest social network, has been repeatedly criticized. Criticism from people who have not achieved even a fraction of his success.
