3 tips for success, all in one quote

19 replies
"All courses of action are risky, so prudence is not in avoiding danger, but in calculating risk and acting decisively.
Make mistakes of ambition and not mistakes of sloth.
Develop the strength to do bold things, not the strength to suffer."

Niccolò Machiavelli


1. Don't fight risk! Take advantage of it!
All great poker players know that the element of "luck", randomness, risk or whatever you call it can be completely dominated by accepting its existence in a very scientific and mathematical way.
99% of the people look for the lucky strike, look for a way of avoiding risk, play it too cool or way too wild. The 1% who are successful are those who understand that if you do the right thing, if you have the right work ethics and focus on that simple strategy you like, even if it fails the first few times, it's enough to get it right once and you'll break loose and free
All courses of action are risky, but prudence is not in avoiding danger, but in calculating risk and acting decisively.


2. Act!
I don't care whether you're religious or not. You can consider sloth to be one of the seven deadly sins or you might not care less about sins.
We all have tremendous potential. I know so many people who many might call stupid or ungifted, and yet their simple ambition and power of will propelled them to the top of the Internet Marketing world. Use what you have, don't let it rot and you will surely be successful. Work, optimize your work and unleash your creativity. There are no limits!
Make mistakes of ambition and not mistakes of sloth.


3. Being a martyr is not brave!
Many people fall in the trap of convenience. Even worse, very often I see people trying to find a way to live with their problems or just a way to barely make a living.
I need to $30 a day to pay my rent, eat and cover all my expenses - so I shall get a lousy job which will help me stay alive. My website disappeared from Google's listings - I'll buy a new domain. I've tried the strategy in this WSO, but I'm stuck with getting accepted into a CPA network - I'll just move on and buy another WSO, try a new money making scheme.
STOP! Don't be convenient! Don't just accept problems and move on - Fight them and move FORWARD!
Develop the strength to do bold things, not the strength to suffer.

I find this quote to be truly inspirational and motivational and has helped me a lot along the way! I hope it will do the same for you

To your success,
Traian

    Hi Traian, I always believed that "the best way to start is to start". There may be difficulties in our path, and the one who have the power to get over them comes out as a true winner.

      This is one quote I frequently remind myself of. I'm quite the perfectionist and a lot of times I find myself procrastinating because deep inside I'm afraid that I won't do a good job, or I won't be able to start what it is that I'm going to do properly. There's another great quote that I often use which is a bit related to this...

      It is better to take many small steps in the right direction than to make a great leap forward only to stumble backward.

      That is true, this tips are really a good motivation for all. In business or in real life situation.

      I really agree on the line that says " STOP! Don't be convenient! Don't just accept problems and move on - Fight them and move FORWARD!"
      A strong line that tells to fight and don't just accept things and be a coward that leaves problem as it is. But instead, act on this problems be strong to face and solve them. That on latter part, you will see things clear for you handle them well.
