Success

“Improvement at anything is based on thousands of tiny failures, and the magnitude of your success is based on how many times you’ve failed at something.  If someone is better than you at something, then it’s likely because she has failed at it more than you have.  If someone is worse than you, it’s likely because he hasn’t been through all of the painful learning experiences you have.” ~ Mark Mason, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck

“I grew up in a wealthy family.  Money was never a problem.  On the contrary, I grew up in a wealthy family where money was more often used to avoid problems than solve them.  I was again fortunate, because this taught me at an early age that making money, by itself, was a lousy metric for myself.  You could make plenty of money and be miserable, just as you could be broke and be pretty happy.  Therefore, why use money as a means to measure my self-worth?” ~ Mark Mason, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck

“Research shows that once one is able to provide for basic physical needs (food, shelter, and so on), the correlation between happiness and worldly success quickly approaches zero.  So if you’re starving and living on the street in the middle of India, an extra ten thousand dollars a year would affect your happiness a lot.  But if you’re sitting pretty in the middle class in a developed country, an extra ten thousand dollars per year won’t affect anything much—meaning that you’re killing yourself working overtime and weekends for basically nothing.” ~ Mark Mason, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck

3 Steps to Leading a More Disciplined Life.

Motivation can be powerful for short term spurts of high intensity productivity.  Discipline, however, is the key to long term success.

Motivation is fickle and requires constant attention.  Discipline is reliable and becomes a way in which you lead your life.

What we’re lacking in the world isn’t sources of motivation—it’s self-discipline.

Type in “motivational video” into Google and you’ll get upwards of 13,000,000 results!  And I’ll be the first to admit that most of the videos are incredibly motivational!

The problem is that motivation wanes fairly quickly and it is weak when challenged.

All it takes to throw off a persons motivation is a slight loss in sleep; a hungry tummy; an endless social media timeline; a phone call; a comfy bed…  We’ve all been there.

“Who wouldn’t want to write a best-selling book or lose weight or earn more money? Everybody wants to achieve these goals.  The real challenge is not determining if you want the result, but if you are willing to accept the sacrifices required to achieve your goal. Do you want the lifestyle that comes with your quest? Do you want the boring and ugly process that comes before the exciting and glamorous outcome?” ~ James Clear, Blog

“When you make it your goal to create the perfect relationship between you and your body, you are learning to have a perfect relationship with anyone you are with, including your mother, your friends, your lover, your children, your dog.  When you have the perfect relationship between you and your body, in that moment your half of any relationship outside you is completely fulfilled.  You no longer depend upon the success of a relationship from the outside.” ~ Don Miguel Ruiz, The Mastery of Love

“Don’t aim at success—the more you aim at it and make it a target, the more you are going to miss it. For success, like happiness, cannot be pursued; it must ensue, and it only does so as the unintended side-effect of one’s dedication to a cause greater than oneself or as the by-product of one’s surrender to a person other than oneself.” ~ Viktor Frankl

“Success for me has little to do with money or possessions or status.  Rather, success is a simple equation: Happiness + Growth + Contribution = Success.  That’s the only kind of success I know.  Hence, I want to partake in work that makes me happy, work that encourages me to grow, work that helps me contribute beyond myself.  Ultimately, I want to create more and consume less.  Doing so requires real work.” ~ The Minimalists, Everything That Remains
