You must upgrade yourself to be a better version of yourself, as everything around us is getting better but the majority of humans seem to think that they are the finished article, that is totally incorrect, take a look around you, the phones, cars, homes, planes, jets and countless other things are all getting better year upon year, but people remain the same year upon year. Through action, personal development and self education you can truly reach your full potential and become a better version of yourself.
The underlying problem seems to be that people make the assumption that they don’t need to learn anything new, they think the education system has taught them all the skills they need, that is a misconception that needs to be broken. People work harder on their jobs then they do on themselves, pause for a moment and reflect, your company is growing but are you, are you developing your mind, your body, your skills, your talents, your passions, your ambitions, your goals, and your dreams.
Are you still at the same level that you were born at, people are still the same way they were ten years on with no major changes to oneself, that is amazing, remaining the same will not help you see a change in your situation, the better life comes from becoming a better you.
Upgrade yourself in all arenas of your life, the major ones, raise your standards in these areas and demand more from yourself, no damn excuses, if you want to see change make changes, too many people live in the world wishing for things to happen miraculously, there is no secret, to become an improved version of yourself you have put in the work, change is the result of effort, if you put no effort in then you won’t get any results.
Successful people develop themselves as they know that success is dependent upon them, work harder, plan ahead, set your goals, push yourself, don’t procrastinate, and be ruthless with your time.
Most people never take the time out to analyse themselves, take a good look in the mirror, are you working at your full potential, are you putting in the work everyday, are you constantly pushing yourself to be the best that you can be, and are you the right person who success will come to, most will say no, ‘of course not, I must learn more to get started on my dreams’. Well the best way to learn is to get into the entrepreneurship game, by getting into the game you develop yourself, it helps you see more, it opens up a whole new world to you that seems somewhat out of reach.
Take the first step, the more you do, the more you will grow, however you must constantly demand more from yourself so that you can rise up from one plateau to the next, don’t just do the easy things, do the things that take you out of your comfort zone so that you can become more, as you go further ahead in your entrepreneurial journey you will look back at yourself and be amazed with your results if you stay consistent in developing yourself to a higher standard.
The battle is between you and you, the battle to grow is to defeat the enemy within that is holding you back, crush that voice of doubt that his hindering your progress and listen to that voice of hope, aspiration and belief that is within you, and let that be the dominant voice that dictates your actions on a daily basis, no more self doubt, it’s time to live life on a new level and push yourself to be the best that you can be.
“Work harder on yourself than you do on your job.”
The Positivity Fast
Positivity is crucial to living life on a new level. Positive thoughts, feelings, and actions are what will take your life from where you are to where you want to be.
Positive people live better lives, their thoughts are focused on the good, whereas negative people live miserable lives, enslaved by their thoughts of what they lack. It is of utmost importance to only allow positive thoughts to dwell within your mind. See the good that is coming to you, take the actions required, and attain the results that you desire.
For the next 70 days, only think, speak, and act in a positive manner. Engage in the positivity fast, do not think, speak, or act in a negative way. If you can do this for the duration you will start to reprogram your mind.
Many people unconsciously are so focused on the negative aspects of life, observe yourself and others and you will see what I am referring to, when you speak about something good, people have an almost natural tendency to be negative, that seems to be a result of the conditioning of the world and the environment in which we live in, where people are so obsessed with looking for what will and can go wrong, rather than looking at the situation with the eyes of optimism, possibility, and belief.
So take on the challenge starting from today so that you can be different from the rest. Let the positivity fast begin, and hold your tongue if you do not have anything good to utter, and you will see your life change for the better.

And let go of those people who are engrossed in negativity. It is vital for your success to distance yourself from people with bad energy and surround yourself with positive individuals. Be the change you wish you to see in the world. Don’t let the world darken your light. Rise up within yourself and take your mindset to a whole new level.
Differences Between Mediocre People & Successful People
There are clear differences between mediocre people and successful people’s daily habits. Successful people have daily success habits that help them to move toward their goals, whereas mediocre people have daily mediocre habits that keep them confined to a life of mediocrity.
Below I will highlight the daily habits between the two groups. Use this information to see which group you currently reside in and make amendments where necessary so that you may live life on a different level.
|Mediocre People||Successful People|
|Talk Orientated||Action orientated|
|Read negative news||Read success related news|
|Read negative newspapers||Read success magazines|
|Don’t read books||Read success books|
|Listen to music||Listen to motivational/personal development videos|
|Play computer games||Take action|
|Discuss people||Discuss ideas|
|Watch excess amounts of TV||Take action|
|Sleep too much||Rest well|
|Wake up late||Wake up early|
|Small talk||Take action|
|Time wasting||Take action|
|Love entertainment||Love action and self-education|
|No schedule||Clear schedule for their day|
|Lack of focus||Focused on success|
From the table above, we can see that successful people are action takers and mediocre people are lazy. Lack of focus on becoming successful is what keeps people engrossed in the sheep life.
Schedule your days ideally on the weekend and be very intentional about your days. Every day you should be focusing your time on those tasks/activities that will have a major impact on your life and will help you to achieve your goals. Eliminate the unnecessary things from your life and do not be like the majority who spend major time engaging in minor things and then they wonder where their day has gone.
Many behave as though they have a thousand years to live, time is finite. So take action and get started on accomplishing the things you want to achieve. Time waits for no one, make the adjustments where needed and be success orientated in your daily habits.
Check out the video from Robin Sharma in regards to daily habits:
Never Lower Your Standards
We live in a world where the masses are so consumed by the life of mediocrity that they have lowered their expectations and belief in themselves. Don’t let other people’s standards, beliefs, and limits become your own. If the people around you do not want to step up their game then they have to go. Never lower your standards for those who don’t want to raise theirs. Set your standards sky high and aim for the top. Stop wasting time with people who have no ambition, no goals, no plans, no drive, no determination, and take no action. The people who you spend the most time with you will become like them. If the people around you are not serious about developing themselves and growing then stop wasting your time with them.
People who are serious about success are growing on a daily basis and they take action. Some people just love the bottom, these types of people don’t want to move from the low-level life they are in, they have given up and will most likely live the mediocre life forever. Cut these people out of your life slowly because they will hold you back from becoming the best that you can be. At the end of the day, it will be your fault if you do not reach your full potential and do all that you are able to do. You are in charge of your time and life, so use your time in a productive manner, go after big goals, the rewards and impact will be greater. Do not expect to do epic work with basic people.
The people who are around you should elevate your thinking, habits, character, mindset, and actions to a new level. These people should bring out the best in you and hold you to a higher standard so that you can achieve greatness.
Too many people are content with mediocrity, they have a lack of ambition and they do not take action on their dreams because they have become timidised by the world and have chosen to just settle for the life that they have stumbled into, as it is easier to be a slave in someone else’s dream rather than chase your own dreams. Believe in yourself and don’t be swayed into mediocrity by the crowd who do not know much about success but are experts on being average, the only opinion that matters is your own. Believe in yourself with confidence that you have within you the potential to achieve anything that you set your mind to.
You can achieve anything that you are willing to work for. There are no limits to what you can truly achieve if you make the sacrifices and have self-control. Focus on those key tasks that will move your life in the right direction and stop engaging in those things that add no value to your life. Your time is a limited resource that must be used productively to yield optimal returns. You will only harvest what you plant. You shall reap what you sow. If you do not reap success, it is because you did not do the work. Don’t make lies up about why you are not where you want to be, you’re not doing what champions are doing most probably, if you want to live like a winner, you must start acting like a winner.
High achievers are those individuals who are driven to succeed and they will do whatever it takes to get them to the top. Get up and chase your dreams or you can do nothing and be resigned to a life of mediocrity. Expect the best of yourself, do the best, work hard and make yourself proud. You are capable of amazing things. So let not the conditioning of the world make you a conformist, be a dreamchaser and chase your dreams.
I challenge you to raise your standards to a whole new level for the next 60 days. Focus on your priorities. Focus on your goals. Focus on the plans to achieve your goals. And get up and take action every single day. Grow more and learn more of the right things in the next 60 days. And persevere until you succeed. Don’t ever give up. Get on a new path of success. It’s time to know better, do better, and live the life that you know you can live. If others have done it so can you, so go boldly into your fears and live the life that you have imagined.
