26 Tips that will put you ahead of 99% of people
1. Your ideas mean nothing if you don’t execute them
No matter how great you think your idea is, it means nothing if you don’t take the first step to turn them into reality.
Everyone has an idea and can have an idea like yours.
What separates doers from thinkers is that doers put in work, while thinkers just think.
After you come up with an idea, make a good plan, then execute it.
2. Do not watch adult movies
It lowers your confidence and self-esteem.
Watching these movies can be addicting and give you a short pleasure by releasing dopamine within your adrenal system.
But it’s one of the toxic habits you must get rid of to live a happy life.
This habit can greatly affect your success in life.
Teens and adults with this habit are depressed and have low confidence. Get rid of this habit.
3. Stand up for yourself and never let anyone get comfortable disrespecting you
People will keep on disrespecting you if you keep on letting them.
It doesn’t matter who is disrespecting you, never let them be comfortable. Stand up for yourself.
There’s a difference between a joke and disrespect. People who are jealous of you will always try to disrespect you by saying a joke.
But it becomes obvious when they push the joke harder. You know what you have to do.

4. Be selfish with your time
Prioritize yourself and don’t be available to anyone every time.
Not everyone deserves your time. Time is one of your most valuable assets.
Focus on important things in your life like family, real friends, and goals. Learn to manage your time effectively.
5. Share your progress, not your goals
Goals are personal. Research shows that people who share their goals with people lose their motivation in the short run.
Instead, share your progress with supportive friends and those who have similar goals.
Your motivation will increase. Do not share your progress or goals with people who belittle you.
6. Avoid constant self-comparison
Every time you spend comparing your progress and life with others, you waste your time.
Do not compare your chapter one with someone else chapter ten. Constant comparison leads to dissatisfaction.
The more you achieve, the more you think you need to achieve.
7. Seek Experience
You grow rich mentally, emotionally, and financially with experience, not with materials.
Instead of giving all your attention to what you will achieve, enjoy and seek the experience you will gain while working to achieve these goals.
8. Learn to say no without the need to over-explain yourself
Don’t be so nice and learn to say no. Respect yourself and don’t allow what you feel/think is wrong.
It saves your time and makes you a genuine person. Your self-respect increase.
9. Do not waste your time thinking you are being patient
So many times I find people wasting their time thinking they are being patient.
Some things require patience and some things require revision.
Things that need patience are:
- Big goals
- Building a bond (Love, friendship, etc)
- Learning a new skill
That’s where you need to have patience. You can’t become the most skillful basketball player in one or two years.
You can’t build a strong bond in days; it takes months or years. You have to be patient.
But it can be tricky. But follow your guts, you know, when a relationship is not working and you are wasting your time.
You will know when the plan isn’t right for achieving your goal and you need to come up with a better plan.
Only you can differentiate between that.
10. Make sure your head is a nice and supportive place
You spend most of your life in your head, make sure it’s a nice place.
The outside world might be harsh and negative, and you can’t control it.
But you can choose to make the world inside your mind a calm and positive place.
11. Don’t waste your time finding a good person, be one
If you can’t find a loyal person, be one. Can’t find a trustworthy person, be one.
You can add any quality you want to see in another person to your character.
12. Master the art of focus
The greatest skill you can leverage in today’s world, where there are potential distractions everywhere is the power of focused attention.
This skill will get you ahead of 90% of all people and increase your chance of achieving great success.
13. Believe in yourself before everyone else does
You have to believe in yourself and be willing to go after your goals.
Don’t look for external validations. On the journey of working to achieve your goals, you will meet people who will believe in you and push you toward success.

14. Never kill your curiosity
Question everything and ask for what you want.
Killing your curiosity kills the creative part of you that’s willing to learn and gain more knowledge.
15. The life you are experiencing is the reflection of your mindset
The quality of your thoughts has everything to do with your mindset.
Build a strong and positive mindset and surround yourself with like-minded people.
16. Consistency is everything
Consistency is greater than intensity. It doesn’t matter how great and wild work you put in the beginning.
If you are not willing to stay consistent for a long time, all of your work won’t matter.
