Robin Sharma shares his tips on how to go from being a victim to being a leader. Use his tips to elevate your life to a whole new level.
“I believe there’s not a lot of payoff in safety and I believe a dangerous life is a greater payoff than a safe life. You don’t really grow unless you take some risks.”
“As I crisscross the planet I realize there are so many people who are behaving like victims and they are so stuck in victimhood but they recite their excuses and the victim stories so often they don’t know that they’re not seeing reality, they’re seeing life or reality through a lens of them being a victim.”
“Our perception is what drives our performance and our beliefs are what drive our behaviors.”
No1: “The victim has a mindset of can’t and the leader has a mindset of can.”
“Your behavior highlights your beliefs.”
“Leaders have a psychology of possibility. It’s all about can, their whole belief, their whole tone, their whole way of being is I can do this for you customer, I can get this dream done, I can bring my best game, I can live an epic life.”
“Where are you stuck in a mindset of can’t? Which is how victims operate, and how can you leap to the psychology of possibility?”
No2: “Victims are busy being busy. So they’re going to come up with all these reasons why they can’t do world class work, why they’re not in great health, why they don’t have a great family life, and why they’re are not having an impact on the world.”
“When you watch a victim in action, they’re really busy being busy, they’re always doing meetings, they’re always talking, always moving, but please don’t confuse movement with productivity. There’s a big difference between busyness and impact.”
“Busy doesn’t mean you’re being productive.”
“The victim is busy, whereas the leader is productive.”
“Ask yourself how can I actually shift to being monomaniacally focused on the few things that would make me productive.”
No3: “The victim is really distracted. The victim loves entertainment. The leader loves education. The victim loves leisure. The leader loves learning. The victim is really distracted.”
“An addiction to distraction is the death of creative production.”
“Most people are unbelievably addicted to distraction, checking their phones, browsing the internet and it just goes on and on. And they are not focused.”
“The leader understands minimalism, the leader understands the essence of genius is simplicity, so the leader builds their life around the big5/vital few.”
“Become really, really, really good at just a few things and you will rise to world-class in the work that you do.”
No4: “The victim makes excuses, whereas the leader delivers results. If you recite your excuses long enough you actually hypnotize yourself to believe that your excuses are real.”
“Where in your work life, where in your personal life, where in your health life, where in your spiritual life are you making excuses? And where have you recited those excuses so many times you’ve actually seduced yourself into thinking they are true?”
“You can tell a victim a mile away, they’re all about excuses. They are so frightened because underneath every excuse lives a fear.”
“You have a choice every day when you walk out into the world, you can make excuses or you can deliver results, you can’t do both.”
“Have you fallen for your excuses. Let go of your excuses today because they are costing you your fortune and they are costing you your ideals and they are costing you your gifts being presented to the world.”
“The world needs more heroes than ever before why wait for them when you have it in you to become one of them.”
No5: “The victim is a taker, whereas the leader is a giver. There are a lot of people who are stuck in scarcity, and that’s another hallmark of the victim, it’s scarce. They’re always thinking about competition, their ego is screaming so loudly that their genius cannot be presented to the world.”
“The victim is a taker. Victims give little value to their company, little value to their customers, and little value to the marketplace, but hope to get an abundance of money or prestige as possible. And that’s a recipe for failure.”
“The leader is a giver. The leader understands that the marketplace rewards value delivery. If you want to make more money, give more value. If you want to achieve more respect in your marketplace, help more people. And it’s a fundamental shift from the taker which is all about scarcity to the giver or leader, which is all about generosity.”
“Give. Ask yourself this question every morning, how can I deliver as much value to as many people as possible?”
“The victim is so caught up in their victim story that they can not see it’s their own behaviour creating the results of their lives.”
“Life doesn’t give you what you want, life gives you what you earn.”
“The victim is so good at blaming, blaming their boss, blaming the economy, blaming their past, blaming their parents, they don’t have the absolute personal responsibility to look in the mirror and say, I have the life not that I want, but the life that I have created.”
“Where can you recreate you life so that you can build a better life.”
“Turn off the TV and forget about relentless entertainment. To have what very few have, you’ve got to do what very few people do.”
“We want to do iconic things in the world but we also want an easy life.”
“You can’t have a world class life and do the things that victims do. That just doesn’t make any sense.”
“It’s dangerous to leave your comfort zone but that’s where all your treasures live.”
“Stop lying to yourself and develop an intimacy with your excuses to identify what you are not doing. Take a good hard look at where you’re making excuses. We grow up the day we shift from making excuses to taking personal responsibility for the way our lives look.”
“Execute. The job of a leader is less talk, more do. To translate your ideals into execution.”
“There’s a lot of talkers in the world. They don’t execute.”
“Don’t tell us what you’re going to do, show us what you’ve done.”
“If you practice executing long enough you’re going to be world-class at execution. But if you practice talking and not doing, that is what you will be world-class at talking.”
“Where you’re winning in life reflects what you’ve been practising.”
“Go to sleep earlier. Early to bed, early to rise is a very wise idea. Go to sleep a little earlier and get up at 5am.”
“As you begin your day, so you craft your life.”
“Leaders get fresh air, it creates a pharmacy of mastery, your mindset gets elevated.”
“Detox the negativity of your life, whether it be news, toxic people, toxic environments, and toxic influences, because your environments do shape your psychology.”
“Install a mentality of world-class. You’ve got to clean out your limiting beliefs and your psychological sabotage.”
“Mindset along with heartset, healthset, and soulset is needed to be world-class.”
“Do the work required internally, the deep architectural, archaeological digging so that your ego and your selfishness and your weaker nature starts to become less noisy and your true nature, that interior hero, not the victim but the leader starts to dominate your interior life.”
“Interior empires precede exterior empires.”
“Live for a cause that’s larger than yourself. Know your mighty mission.”
“Real leadership is about who you’re becoming and how many people you’re helping.”
“It doesn’t matter what happened in your past, you’ve got a brilliant future ahead of you if you make the right choices. Shift from being a victim to being a leader.”
“You still have it in you to make tomorrow, this year and the rest of your life pure art.”

How To Achieve Success?
Success can be defined in many ways; it can be happiness for one person and wealth for another. It can be peace for one and respect for another. Everyone can define success in their own way, but in general, it is a feeling of satisfaction and happiness.
Throughout life, we have a hunger to achieve greatness. The more we achieve the better life becomes. There are plenty of opportunities in this world. If you have a dream to succeed and achieve something special in this life, you need to put in the work, because without action, nothing is possible. The majority of people only dream to succeed, while a small minority work hard to achieve their dreams. To attain success, you need to sacrifice many things, this is how the successful people in this world achieved their greatness.
We need to understand how to achieve success. To do this, we need to break down what success means. The best way to do this is by understanding and analyzing successful people. Successful people in this world emulated and followed the footsteps of other successful people. For example, there is a pattern with successful people. Many successful people wake up early. They spend their time wisely throughout the day, reading and gaining knowledge. This is key to success, while keeping a good balance in life is also vital in achieving success.
Quotes On Success
“Success is walking from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm.” Winston Churchill
“If you really look closely, most overnight successes took a long time.” Steve Jobs
“The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.” Walt Disney

5 Great Pointers On Achieving Success
Follow Your Passion
Success does not come overnight, it takes a lot of hard work and passion to reach the desired goal and dream. It requires strong dedication, hard work, constant improvement, and sometimes luck. If you are not doing what you love, then you are bound to give up and fail. Only those who have a great passion for something they love, will continue, and strive hard to move on and achieve greatness. It should be something you are willing to sacrifice and dedicate your life to. Every day, every week, and every hour of the day should be dedicated to achieving your goals and dreams.
Find The Correct Balance
Life is all about finding the right balance. When you find the right balance, only then will you see success around you and within you. Balance your time, spend time with your family and friends. Allocate time to achieving your goals and targets. Look after your health, exercise, and eat well. Life is all about finding a balance. Do not sacrifice one thing for another. It is important to find the right balance in life.
Establish A Routine
Routines are vital when you are trying to succeed. We are taught from a young age the importance of keeping a good routine in life because without a routine you will be a mess and it will become harder for you to do well in achieving your goals and targets. For example, people who have a job, working for a company, these companies have strict routines in place. The reason for this is so that the company performs well and becomes more successful. Even in our daily lives, without routine we will be all over the place. It is proven that a person who has no routine in life, is a person who is very lazy, a time waster and someone who has no goals and ambition in life. Therefore, we should strive to have good routines in our life, as this will lead us to have a better life.
Learn From Your Mistakes
Successful people have failed many times. It is inevitable unless you are an extremely lucky person, where everything works out for you. But, when starting off, the first few steps are the hardest. Many people who have achieved great things have failed on many occasions. There are many obstacles in front of you that blocks you from reaching the next stage of success. For example, there are many entrepreneurs who have failed in many businesses, until that one business that has made them successful. Without failures and mistakes, we as humans will never learn, therefore make as many mistakes as you can, as these mistakes will lead you to gain more experience and knowledge in achieving your goals and dreams.
Find Support And Resources
Find yourself a mentor, you need someone who can point you in the right direction to achieve greatness. With the correct help and support, you can achieve even better than you would do by yourself. If a mentor is not available, try reaching out to others in your field. Find people who have already achieved what you plan to achieve, and try and get as much information from them as possible so that you can reach that level of success one day. Networking is important to become successful and bigger in what you are trying to accomplish. Reaching out to people will allow you to grow further. It will allow you to find out information that you did not even know you needed. Therefore, speaking out and finding the right support and resources will push you to the next level.
To summarize, to achieve success, you must be wise and bold. A person who does not try and is lazy in life will go nowhere. You cannot just dream and expect everything to fall perfectly in front of you. You must work hard to get results. We should analyze those who have achieved greatness, by following in their footsteps. Only then can we crawl, walk, and then achieve our own success. Remember, success does not come overnight, it begins with baby steps, and when you are established, you will see the greatest successes.
How To Switch To Self-Love – Your Secret SuperPower
How To Switch To Self-Love – Your Secret SuperPower from Ralph Smart of Infinite Waters (Diving Deep). This was an excellent talk about the importance of self-love and it’s relevance to success. Take this information and implement it so that you can live life a life of self-love.
1. Self-love is the secret gateway to becoming your greatest version.
2. Without self-love you won’t go far.
3. Self-love has changed my life in a phenomenal way. It’s helped me connect with millions of people living infinite abundance.
4. And there was a time when I didn’t love myself, look, nobody teaches us how to love ourselves, why it’s important to love ourselves, what are the benefits of loving yourself. No, they don’t teach you that, that’s why a lot of us are really confused.
5. Practicing the art of self-love is a lifelong process. I mean every single day.
6. And it starts with this, stop caring what other people think.
7. We want to be accepted so therefore we spend our whole entire lives trying to conform to other people’s standards instead of creating our own.
8. Other people’s beauty standards. Their body standards – I want to look like that Ralph, it’s not fair.
9. So, what helped me along my journey was to stop trying to live by other people’s standards.
10. Instead, I had to learn how to live by my own standards and you do this simply by surrendering, it’s not about competing – I want to be like them, that’s a disrespect towards yourself.
11. You want to become your greatest version, your, not me, for you. Do it for you. Right, and it’s such a weight off your shoulders.
12. I just started to realize I’ve got to start creating my own standards. Living in my own standards of beauty. Accepting my body how it is, the shape of my face. I love it all. And that’s how to begin to love yourself.
13. Stop trying to fit in when you were born to stand out.
14. Ok, how many weird people do you know? That is how to switch to self-love. Weird people aren’t weird, that’s just what we call them. Weird people are unique. That’s why they stand out.
15. And have you ever noticed that when you find someone who is very unique, it almost allows you to be yourself? You feel comfortable around them because you’re like they’re so weird well I’m going to be weird anyway. Then you fall into the true authentic you.
16. Spend time with unique people who don’t care about copying other people, they are original, they love who they are 100%. And I do it all the time, I meet a lot of very very weird people every single day, well, I’m Diving Deep and it’s beautiful.
17. I have to always honor my uniqueness. You won’t find another Infinite Waters, if you do, they’re a clone.
18. When we talk of Self-love, I’ve realized this that you’ve got to go to the place where you find your greatest power, that’s what helped me along my journey.
19. I realized, for a long time I was living a very very harmful lifestyle because I wasn’t practicing self-love, I wasn’t doing what I love every single day, I was in the wrong environment, the wrong friends, I was following the wrong crowd. If you’re doing all of that it’s going to be very hard to love yourself
20. But when you go to the place where you find your greatest power. Skate every day like me. You’re in the seat of your power, you are in the throne. Whether you be a makeup artist or scientist, you do that every single day, go into the lab, you are in the seat of your power. That’s how to practice the art of self-love.
21. You go to the place of your greatest empowerment every single day. I’m always in nature. I’m in the art gallery. I’m doing what I love. I get to wake up and do whatever I want and live in infinite abundance. You think I’m complaining?
22. You can’t love other people until you love yourself. And not caring what other people think is the greatest form of self-love.

5 Powerful Things Successful People Do Differently
Many people believe that a successful life is just a matter of luck, and leave everything to their destiny to decide whether or not they will be successful.
On the other hand, what many people are unaware of is that successful people have certain habits that separate them from ordinary people.
These people are more aware of their strengths and weaknesses. They are self-conscious and know how to turn a losing moment into a winning moment. They are motivated, disciplined and consistent. Above all, they are not made through just a matter of luck.
Here are five powerful things successful people do differently.
1. Turn Their Passion Into A Full-Time Profession
It’s obvious that if you are doing the things that you don’t love you soon get fed up with your work and fail to give your maximum at your workplace. You will be less focused, procrastinate more, feel tired, make more excuses and hence your input will reflect your output.
Successful people do what they love. They give priority to their interests over wealth or respect. Almost all the artists, sportspersons and entrepreneurs are underpaid at first. No matter how bad the circumstances, they worked consistently and devoted their heart and soul into their work. They looked for ways to increase their revenue and transformed their passion into a full-time profession.
If you want to be successful, give priority to your passion and think of ways to make it your full-time job. Then you will be happier and have a more meaningful life.
2. Setting Priorities
Millions of people fail every year not because they do not have aspirations but because they fail to set priorities. They try to do a lot of things at once, rather than focusing on one important task. They are brilliant at achieving not-so-important goals, and poor at reflecting on the necessary task.
Successful people think otherwise. They cut-off all the distractions and pick the toughest task first. They work outside their comfort zone to complete the difficult tasks.
3. Continuously Reinforce The Foundation
Every profession has some key skills which form the foundation. If the skills are not harnessed continuously, it will affect your whole business career. Successful people are smart enough to find the key skills of their profession and spend the maximum amount of time and money in developing those areas.
They read books, attend seminars, and meet like-minded people. Some top performers also hire a coach to become exceptionally good at what they love to do.
To get the maximum output you can follow the 3% rule of investment. The rule says that if you spend 3% of your income in self-education, you will see yourself outperforming 90% of the people around you.
4. Goal Setting
Everyone talks about goal setting. Why is it so? Because it’s a roadmap. If you do not know how to reach your destination then most certainly you will never be able to reach it. Goal setting works as a roadmap to success, and it’s the common trait that all successful people follow. Here are the phenomenal benefits of goal setting.
- You’ll have a clear vision on what to do today, tomorrow, and next month if you already know about your destination in detail.
- Clarity in decision-making abilities.
- You will start finding new ways to reach your goals in the minimum amount of time and money.
- Studies have shown that reviewing your goals every day improves motivation in an unexpected way.
- People who have goals have a high self-image of themselves. High self-image results in increased productivity and confidence.
- Goal setting leads to a more meaningful life.
5. Dealing With Uncertain Moments
Where people are afraid of taking risks, successful people not only take risks but also develop their risk-taking muscle within themselves so that they can fight against the uncertain moments (fight or flight).
A successful life is not determined through massive luck but through the courage to take big risks. Challenges and opportunities come along with a certain amount of risk.
While ordinary people avoid risk due to ‘fear of failure‘, successful people continuously overcome one uncertain moment after another to achieve personal and professional excellence.
The biggest enemy or obstacle on your path to success is a negative mindset or the perception that you need to be born into wealth, and extremely lucky. Well, that is not the case. Most successful people are not born into wealth or born lucky. They tried new things, made mistakes, learned and made their way through the journey to success.
If you want to be successful, make sure that you are doing what you love, setting priorities and removing clutter and distractions from your everyday life, enhancing your key skills, setting clear and in-detailed goals, taking risks and dealing with uncertain moments with a positive mindset.
