It’s all cause and effect. If you want to attain long-lasting success, you must study success. You have to understand the ins and outs of your trade. You have to learn more about yourself — who you are and what values you stand for. The better knowledge and understanding you have of yourself and your chosen line of work, the easier it becomes to make the right decisions and focus on what’s important, and thus attract success.
You have to practice Essentialism and learn to give priority to things that matter the most. Of course, this will change as your life progresses, and that’s why you must learn how to detach from unimportant things and course-correct whenever required. Unless you develop yourself personally and professionally and get better with problem solving, it’ll get incredibly difficult to sustain success.
If you want to join the league of exceptionalists and superstar achievers, you must throw procrastination and excuses out of the window and work constantly towards increasing your knowledge and awareness, both of yourself and your craft. You must commit to raising your Success IQ every single day.
