    Biggest change I made years ago that made massive impact on my life and business was to schedule time each day for improving myself. Getting over the belief that spending time on yourself is being "selfish" and instead realising that for every unit of time or $$ you put into yourself is multiplied by a factor of 10-20X as you impact those around you was life-changing.

    Since then, I make sure to follow certain habits each day around self improvement including:

    1. Meditation
    2. Goal setting & review
    3. Setting my state (typically by reading/watching/listening to something inspiring)
    4. Setting time to learn something new - learning is what leads to growing, I firmly believe that you are either growing or shrinking - there is no middle ground
    5. Exercise and diet - follow specific practices here
    6. Getting enough sleep - I still break this one occasionally depending on situation, but far less than I used to. Everything works better when you get 7-8 hours of sleep versus getting under 6 (at least for the vast majority of people)

    Visualisation has always worked for me..

    Picture what you want, in amazing detail.. for example.. if you imagine your foot walking on the ground, what does that feel like.. imagine the texture of the floor... the temperature etc.

    I spend a good hour or so, whenever I need to, to visualise events in microscopic detail. And then occasionally, create sigils.

    I learned this one from John Milton Fogg - author of "The Greatest Networker in the World".

    He calls it the 'theater of the mind'. Others call it 'visualization'.

    Close your eyes. See yourself walking down a sidewalk, and coming to a movie theater (yes, you can still do that in some places - if it helps, change 'a sidewalk' to 'the mall'). You glance at the marquee to see what's playing. The name of the picture is [Your Name] - The True Story of An Amazing Life.

    You buy a ticket, find a seat and get comfortable. The lights dim, the sound comes up and...

    Fill it in from there, in surround sound, high definition, even Smell-o-Vision. See the movie of your life on the screen in your mind. See how everything turned out the way you dreamed it would.

    Keep playing that movie in your mind until it's a part of you.

    Another visualization exercise is written by hand, in ink. Describe, in as much detail as possible, an ideal day. When do you wake up? What will you do, where will you go, who will you encounter and interact with? What do your surroundings look like, sound like, feel like, smell like? The more detail, the more vivid you can make this tale the better.

    Again, keep doing it until it's a part of you.

    What you are really doing is programming your subconscious. Your subconscious mind is an incredible goal-seeking machine. In fact, if you're feeling blocked over something you aren't achieving, it's usually your subconscious trying to protect you from something it thinks (due to prior programming) will harm or disappoint you.

    For me books and good sound company have always kept my mindset towards my priorities.But I always learn a lot from people and their practical experiences.

    "surrounding yourself with like minded people"

    one of the best methods, you surround yourself with people that think outside
    the box, you will as well.

    you surround yourself with miserable people you have no chance to succeed

    I think about my future. If I don't get success there will be waiting huge danger for me. When I think about this I automatically get control of my work and start my work with 8x speed.
