6.   Ignore what others are doing

Tim Grover explained once that the world’s elite do not compete with each other. They set trends and make others to react. Rather than copying what others are doing, live your own values. Put first things first.

Performance measures on quantity of data. If you report measure results and report it, the rate of improvement accelerates. However, if you try to link many indicators and coefficients, the results may turn into a jam.

12.   Heighten expectations of prospective results

One head is good, two is better. Opinions and thoughts of many people broaden your perception of working spheres mostly when you do not copy just one, but adapt the thoughts of many. Anyone can teach you, you just need to listen and analyze.

16.   Set the tone of mentorship program

The mentee in you should determine mostly the relationship with the mentor himself. Darren Hardy said that you should never take advice from someone with whom you would not trade places. Thus, to experience proper mentorship program, just choose the person of whom do you really want to be like.

17.   Give credit where credit is due

Although your success is your own responsibility, you are not the sole cause of that success. You are not independent of all the help you can receive. More accurately, you are the product of other people. Thus, consider to share the fame and benefits of your success in pleased admiration for others.

18.   Think astronomically

People are limiting themselves in one galaxy, but who knows what Universe you can imagine inside your head. Stop encountering yourself in time, scope, complexity, ability and power. Proof that one of your thought can reach other galaxies, where other people were afraid to look.

19.   Think laterally

The success stories are not just one path through obstacles, but the plan of different paths and approaches to achieve one goal. People that think laterally are always ready for changes because they are able to predict changes and think up how they would go beside it or find another way.

20.   Think more flexible about limited resources

The mindset of humans always prognoses limitedness of resources. Yet, a few of them can bring up ideas on how to interchange them or replace to keep the synergy. For example, if your budgets are low and limited, try more to find ways on where to get resources you demand from different perspectives.

21.   Think more flexible about limited time

Time is a real abstraction, where the more you think of these limits, the more you lose. Never limit yourself in time counters; never assume that for your success it would take 3-5 years. Just go with it, do your stuff and develop.

Simply, goal achievement is a race where you probably must win. Competition is high and the strongest people are still people. Never be jealous of someone’s success, just look at the process, prioritize plans and go with it, living with your own values.
