1. Start Now
If you have a dream, start chasing it now and get out of your comfort zone. The moment you start is the moment you get one step closer to your dream.
“A ship in harbour is safe, but that is not what ships are built for.“ John A. Shedd
2. Be persistent
Every beginning is difficult; you have to repeat those things which are going to make you better over and over again, in order to reach your next goal. When you were a small child, you couldn't walk, but you persisted until you could. So, be as persistent as a child.
“It may seem difficult at first but everything is difficult at first.” Miyamoto Musashi
3. Never give up
You will often fail along your way, because life is not a bed of roses. Still, you have to move ahead, overcome all obstacles and never give up. Only the one who never gives up has never lost.
“It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop.” Confucius
4. Be patient
Never overestimate what you can achieve in a short period of time and never underestimate what you can achieve in a long period of time.
“To lose patience is to lose the battle." Mahatma Gandhi
5. Be unlimited
If there is an obstacle in your way, jump over it, go around it or go through it. You define your own limits. If there isn’t a solution, then create one.
“Unlimited efforts can produce unlimited results.” Ron Kaufman
6. Forge a clear mind
The strength of your mind will shape the strength of your body. A clear mind is the key.
“Your body can stand almost anything. It’s your mind that you have to convince!” Unknown author
7. Lift others up
You are not stronger when you put others down, but you will be when you lift others up.
“Blowing out someone else’s candle doesn’t make yours brighter.” Unknown author
8. Dream big
If others tell you that your dream is too big, tell them that, THEY are too small. The moment you write down your dream, it begins to exist. This is the first step towards turning a dream into physical reality.
“If you can dream it, you can do it.” Walt Disney
9. Transform hate into power
Thank the people who tell you, that you can't achieve something, because they give you unlimited willpower.
“When they say you can’t, don’t talk, just be unstoppable.” Unknown author
10. No excuses
If you keep making up excuses, you will punish yourself and you will not achieve your dream.
“If it's important you'll find a way. If it's not, you'll find an excuse.” Unknown author
