The 3 No-Bullshit Ways To Stay Hungry For Success

Chase Your dreams with a positive mindset. Stay hungry for success without giving up. This world is not a good place for the weak and the lazy one.

Many of you out there would agree with me that success doesn’t come on a silver platter. Well, let’s forget those born silver spoon in the mouth and face reality. A few people are lucky enough to inherit great fortunes.

If your story isn’t like that but mine then get ready to climb out of the pit. It will require much effort and other disciplines. Here I want to share a few secrets that will help you stay hungry for success until you get it.

Success is something many dreams of but few achieve it in reality.

A Scottish proverb and nursery rhyme first recorded in 1628 says:

“If wishes were horses beggars will ride it”

In ancient times a great Greek philosopher once lived. His name is Socrates. One day a young boy approached him for wisdom that will help him become successful in life. He took him to the seaside for a lesson.

After Socrates pushed his head a couple of times in the sea, the guy felt very uncomfortable…

What did Socrates then say?:

 “Son, I have tried three times now to teach you the secret of being a great success. The secret is simple: When you want to succeed as much as you want to breathe, you will be a great success.”

The moral lesson from this story is to be hungry for success. Like the air you breathe, go after it without giving up.

The Truth About Progress And Success

It feels really good to make greater achievements in life. Every single being you see out there needs progress because we are humans and humans are meant to grow by nature.

Unfortunately, many are going through retrogression. This is a very painful experience anyone can relate to it. You need to wake up to your dreams without any fear. Now get prepared to grasp some fresh air after staying under the water like the young boy in Socrates’ story.

How To Be Hungry For Success Without Giving Up

1.  Be Aggressive

I once met a young guy and asked his name. He replied “Aggra.” Eish… What’s that, I asked.

He smiled and said “Aggressive.” Wow, so that guy’s name is “Aggressive.” It sounded very inspirational to me. It says it all without further words…

Sometimes, to be successful in life, your business, education, job, marriage, etc you have to take an aggressive approach.

If you play “Saint” all the time, you might fail or spend thousands of years before you move a needle. I have seen a couple of individuals and companies use aggressive tactics to reach their goals.

Being proactive towards your goals is very essential in the journey to success. Stay positive and hopeful at all times. Don’t allow anyone or anything to intimidate you. Keep going…

2. Be Ready To Take Risk

Risk-taking is also an essential part of the journey to success. If you can’t take risks, you will barely reach the top. Life is full of ups and downs. Dip your feet in the water first… Yes, you can swim… Don’t be afraid.

Risk teaches us valuable life lessons. Invest your money, time, energy, knowledge, and any other resources in your goals. Go out there with the confidence of winning but not failing. Oh, wait, what if you fail? That is where you learn a valuable lesson to strategize your next plan for success.

3. The Natural And The Unnatural Competition

After going through several life experiences I have realized something I think is worth sharing. You see, by nature, we are meant to progress.

The natural competition says “hey, try to be better than yourself” and the unnatural competition also says “hey try to be better than your competitors.”

The truth of the matter is, competition in life is inevitable. We need a combination of both the natural and the unnatural to reach our goals. Now let me take a minute and wish you good luck in all your endeavors.

Use these three methods to stay hungry for success and in the long run the payoff would be great!

Do the best you can do today because tomorrow is not guaranteed. The little you start doing will become something bigger in the future.

Positivity and its blessings, in the long run, begin in the mind. Forget the past and think positive about your goals, believe that you will make them.

A man full of a strong mentality will surely reach his goals in life. Let me inspire you with some quotes if you are planning to give up or can’t see the way forward. Read them on daily basis and make an affirmation of them.

I believe you have already thought to keep going forward. Yes, believe in your dreams and never forget to ask for more strength from God.

In fact, you can’t be successful without being serious about your dreams. You ought to work hard. Laziness brings poverty and sorrow. Even the Bible encourages us to work hard. 

Be willing to do whatever job, business, or project you are doing very well. Put in much effort to make it successful. Let me inspire you with this quote that says nobody cares work harder. Yes! Nobody truly bothers about your success —perhaps only your mother will care with genuine love. So go out there are sweat it out and be proud to enjoy the fruits of your labor.

It’s very difficult to make greater achievements in life. Those who maintain a positive attitude toward their dreams reap the fruits of their suffering and pain. You will be successful in your endeavors, just be patient and keep yourself on the right track.

Sometimes, you will feel dejected in a way that might make you think nobody cares about you. 

The life you are living is about you, live it good by embracing your worth and become valuable to others. Remember, not everyone will like you. Never mind. Keep on going.

Stay motivated and hopeful about the future.

4 Practical Ways To Forget The Past And Move Forward

Don’t think about the awful past. Forget it and be hopeful about the future.

Life is a journey. Whether you are ready or not, time wouldn’t wait for you. So why should you bother about changing the past? Aren’t you trying to cry over spilt milk? Look, many find themselves imprisoned by their past. And so never see progress in their lives.

It’s a challenging situation few people conquer and move forward. We are humans, and a matter of fact meant to grow in wisdom, knowledge, strength, and to a larger extent increase in spirituality.

Now, if you are among those who could hardly let go —then it is time you learn how to do it.

A child will not always be a child. 20 or more years later, you can’t call him a kid. So don’t be kidding. Grow in wisdom and knowledge while you go through what we know as a life transition. There is time for everything so have patience. And you will surely heal from any emotional pain.

Each stage of your life has its own story.

Your Story In The Past Is Useless In The Future

No matter how awful your past is —you can still be the happiest person on earth today. You can be the most successful person in your family, among your friends, co-workers, etc,

If the past never thought you valuable lessons —then you are not ready for what is ahead of you. The past helps to avoid repetitive mistakes and helps to keep ourselves clean from similar awful experiences.

Forget whatever has happened. I’m talking about the painful ones like betrayals, business failure, rejections, broken relationships, wrong choices, etc.

It begins by re-engineering your mind to deal with any cognitive bias that will crop up in your mind. Flush it out as soon as possible. Wear a smile because you belong to the future.

The story in the past shouldn’t stop you from progressing in life.

If the past is nothing like giving you some nostalgic feeling to smile, be hopeful and motivated to dream big —then it doesn’t worth your time.

Simple Ways To Forget The Past

1. Focus On Your Dreams

Imagine seeing yourself having your dreams come true. Isn’t that going to be a beautiful thing? Yes, this is one of the things you must focus on —your DREAMS! You surely have some realistic goals in front of you. Work hard to achieve them. And while you keep yourself busy with your dreams —you will have zero time to worry about the past.

2. Self-discipline

Here you will need the mental strength to examine yourself on regular basis. Be aware at all times of whatever you do, wherever you are and how things are unfolding. This will help you avoid falling into the mire once again.

You must discipline yourself in a way that will make you responsible for your action and everything you say. This is how to move from unpleasant situations to a more safe place.

Do this by controlling your emotions. Your emotions are an essential part of you. So take charge and be happy, hopeful, and motivated enough to reach higher heights. I believe by reading some of these quotes about emotions can help you be emotionally mature to handle many provocative situations.

3. Stay Away From Negative People

Change is inevitable. If your friends are not encouraging you to show you genuine love and support —don’t take them into the future. Remember that, there are people who only become part of your life journey.

So learn how to avoid things, people, and even places that draw you back into the past.

There is a saying that prevention is better than cure. So avoid unhealthy relationships or anything that drains your mental strength.

4.  Make Peace With Yourself

Tell yourself or promise yourself that you will never fall victim to your past mistakes again. Show yourself some love. Self-love is good for your life. Make peace with yourself and move forward. You are having peace of mind now.

So there are enough good thoughts inside your head to keep you going forward and making a new adjustment to a beautiful future. Those thoughts must flow your mind like a fountain throughout the day, the month, and the year.

Say No to anything that causes fear in you. Take courage and flip the next page of your life story. There is something better waiting for you.

4 Best Things In Life That Are Free

Happiness is a choice and one of the best things in life.

I have thought so much about many things in life and found a few important things that are worth talking about. Often we hear people tell us that the best things in life are free. Do you agree to that?

In this post, I will like to remind everyone that, truly what are the most important things in life costs nothing. Unfortunately, many are chasing the wrong things in life. Why? Because they believe those things are the ultimate things to make them happy but that is never true.

Happiness doesn’t cost a dime so everyone living on earth is privileged to enjoy it. Imagine someone obsessed with money. It is one of the biggest reasons why many people never feel happy. Because their needs are never satisfied. Contentment is a foreign word to them.

Now get ready and let me share with you some of the things that are free and capable of making you happy.

Free Things In Life Are Are Best For You

In fact, the list will be very long if I want to talk about all the free things that make life the best to live.

1. Breathe Of Life:

If you can breathe today, be grateful. Is taking in oxygen not free of charge?. Of course Yes. God made oxygen available in our environment for all living things to enjoy. You are alive today so be grateful. Thank God today if you are not paying for oxygen to survive. You had a privilege this morning that about 50,000 people did not.

2. Friends

Having the best friends would make you happy. There are friends who are more than brothers. They will always make you happy. You may even forget your pains and challenges in life if you are out there with them.

“A true friend unbosoms freely, advises justly, assists readily, adventures boldly, takes all patiently, defends courageously, and continues a friend unchangeably.” — William Penn

Feel free to have fun with your good friends. Laugh, travel, party, share your interest, dreams, and many other things together. They will encourage you, advise you and help you when necessary.

3.  Happiness

Like I said early. To be happy is free of charge and it is one of the best things you could ever find. It doesn’t matter if you are a kid or adult, poor or rich, wise or fool; everyone can be happy in his own little world without any cost.

Psychology says happiness is a state of mind, so prepare your mind to think good, positive, and about encouraging things.

4.  Laughter

A smile kills a lot of negative feelings. It is good therapy for calming down anxiety. Smile often and you would attract good people to yourself. This is the best thing you can give everyone. A smile is part of giving. So give a broad smile and you would always be happy in life.
