What you do in your free time determines what you’ll be doing when you don’t have a choice.

Excerpt from: my book series

Use your free time wisely.

What you do in your free time determines what you’ll be doing when you don’t have a choice.

If you’re not using your free time to direct your life where you want it to go, don’t expect to arrive at your desired destination when the rest of your time is spent being told what to do by other people.

There will always be someone better at something than you are

Excerpt from: my book series

We are often unaware of the struggles that others must face in order to achieve success. As Lee Honda put it, “Success is 99% failure.”

Know that whatever it is you wish to accomplish, no two people, businesses, or ventures are exactly the same. You can’t help but bring a unique perspective to your endeavors and a unique combination of talents and skills.

So even if the field is crowded, understand that you can succeed, too, but in order to do so, it is essential that you put in the effort and take action to achieve your goals.

Getting discouraged at others’ accomplishments and giving up because you feel you can’t compete gets you nowhere.

Constantly comparing yourself to others is waste of energy. There will always be someone better at something than you are.

A wise person once said, “Comparison is the thief of joy.”

Don’t let the success of others discourage you from your own endeavors or make you bitter. If someone has done or is doing something you would like to do, let it inspire you and be an indicator that you, too, can achieve great things.

You were meant for greatness.

Excerpt from: my book series

you-were-meant-for-greatness-zerosophy-zero-dean-lion-poster

You are stronger, smarter, and more resilient than you think. You are capable of achieving far more than you believe.

You were meant for greatness — like all of those who have achieved it.

But it takes persistence. It takes determination. It takes facing your fears and doing that which is hard & necessary, instead of what is quick and easy. It takes skipping the mythical shortcuts & using your imagination as a map and preview of life’s coming attractions.

Stop encouraging mediocrity

Seen in a meme:

  • You’re amazing!
  • You’re beautiful.
  • You’re perfect!
  • You’re awesome.

The mere fact that a person exists does not make them awesome, amazing, or beautiful.

Contributing something positive to people’s lives and adding value to the world does.

Act and encourage accordingly.
