Have a burning desire. Napoleon Hill, author of Think and Grow Rich, said, “The starting point of all achievement is desire. Weak desire brings weak results, just as a small fire makes a small amount of heat.”
Build the discipline to do what is difficult, what is scary, and what is risky. Working hard with no promise of being paid. It’s the faithfulness in fulfilling the little uncomfortable things along the way that separate those who succeed and those who don’t.
Surround yourself with doers. Jim Rohn says "you are the average of the five people you spend the most time with." If your friends are ambitious people of action who don’t make excuses, you’re likely to follow suit.
Dream better dreams. If your dreams don’t spur you forward, then they’re not worth keeping around. If your dreams don't make you excited about possibilities then, it’s time to trade your old dreams in for some better ones.
