It’s something we all wish to achieve. There are many people out there who want to succeed badly, but don’t know where to begin.

This was the case for me.

I’ve read lots of books and blogs. Watched many YouTube videos and drank the motivational Kool-Aid in every flavor.

There’s lots of great information from these resources. I must warn you to be careful with whose advice you take because there are a lot of fake gurus out there looking to profit off of insecure people. The other thing to be mindful of is information overload. In the internet age, it’s easy to consume more than what your brain can process at a time. Don’t forget to give yourself time to reflect on what you consumed and how you can apply it.

I think one thing that people miss on this path to success is tailoring new found knowledge to their own values and needs.

While there’s plenty of information out there on the “top x things to do in order to be successful,” all of it isn’t applicable.

For example: taking ice cold showers first thing in the morning may work for some, but it’s not the end of the world if you don’t do that.

Success comes in many forms. You don’t need to copy your mentors one and success icons one hundred percent in order to win at life.

What are your values?

What are your goals?

What are you willing to sacrifice in order to achieve them?

What is your ideal life?

Having that in mind can help you swift through what information is applicable to you and adjust accordingly.

My definition of success may differ from you. My top tips on things to do while on the pathway to success may differ from you, and that’s okay.

Seek knowledge, but in the end, do you.
