1. Bill Gates never took a day off in his 20s. So why should we?

Your 20s are probably your most productive time. It’s also the period in your life when you have the most free time. It’s time to take the decision to use these resources to your advantage.

Never again will you have that much energy and time, and that little responsibility and stuff to lose.

So work hard, try things, fail, take risks, and set goals. It will all pay off in the long-run.

Here’s some more advice for millennials.

3. ‘It’s not about money or connections. It’s the willingness to outwork and outlearn everyone when it comes to your business.’ – Mark Cuban

One of the key things I did right back when I was just starting out with my online business, was to not do it for the money. For me, it’s about lifestyle design and freedom. I wanted to provide value, reclaim my time, do what I love for a living, create a powerful platform like Let’s Reach Success, build a name for myself.

I knew that the money will follow eventually if I stay consistent with it and keep putting in the effort.

24. ‘You don’t learn to walk by following rules. You learn by doing, and by falling over.’ – Richard Branson

This motivational quote is something I remind myself of often.

Break patterns, try new approaches to anything, build life skills, and keep failing.

Any successful person from history and of today did that in the beginning. It’s just that we hear more about their successes and think they somehow got lucky.

But no. There’s no shortcut to happiness or success. And it’s no use following rules and living by society’s standards.

Do things your way, and win big.

25. How you start your day defines how you’ll end it.

What I want you to pay attention to with this motivational picture quote is the importance of morning routines.

Almost all leaders, millionaires, CEOs and anyone who’s achieved big things in life, wake up insanely early. Not just that, though. They also know how to make the most of this extra time.

A ritual is a set of healthy, productive and positive habits you do in the morning, before anything else. It’s a fantastic way to get some work done, set yourself up for a successful day, find focus, get inspired, work on your passion project, organize your day, empty your mind, work out, or else.

It takes some time and experimenting till you find what works for you, and also what you enjoy.

Once you have the right combination of morning habits, you can make this routine a permanent part of your life.

These are all outer factors. It’s you who needs to get up and do something in the end of the day.

History is full of great people who had no money, no education, no one around them doing or wanting the same, and no experience in their field. But with a good strategy and enough determination, while being patient and ready to go the extral mile, you can conquer the world.
