- Start learning how to make decisions, now
Surely often you have thought that “not making any decision” could not have any negative implications, on the contrary the first step in your path to become successful is “learning to make decisions now“.

- Work and you will get results
To go from words to deeds you have to get yourself busy, in jargon “work”. Don’t think of work as something hard, heavy and boring, on the contrary try to imagine it as the natural path to success. Nobody said it would be easy, life doesn’t give you what you want, it gives you what you deserve. So start getting busy and work on your goals, never forget you can be the smartest person in the world, but if you spend your life on the couch you will surely never get results.
And when you work, learn to self-criticize and evaluate the effectiveness of your work, ask yourself daily or weekly if the results of your work brought you closer to your goals.
- It’s not about appearance, it’s about expressing yourself
I’m not talking about clothes, well maybe even those, but more importantly remember to present the best part of you, trying to never be superficial and obvious.
Imagine yourself always on a first date and present the best side of you with the people you meet in both life and work. Be kind, transparent, honest and relevant. Kindness rewards, don’t forget it.
- Increase your self-esteem working on your skills
If you don’t believe in yourself, it won’t be motivational posts or videos that change things. Do you want to improve your self-esteem? Get good at something. How do you become good? By studying, learning, doing and repeating, (do you remember reading a while ago that work brings results?) Here we are, work on your skills, be constant and improve day after day. And you will also see, day after day, your self-confidence increase.
- Learn to love criticism
When you feel criticized how do you feel? I guess: frustrated, defeated, useless? And what if you try to be grateful instead?
Make criticism your fuel!
What if the criticism makes no sense and you feel a feeling of anger? Use that anger to fuel the fire inside that says “I’ll show you”
Among other things, the ability to react to criticism is one of the most valued soft skills by international recruiters.
- Take care of your body
Lack of energy, feeling of exhaustion, constant tiredness Sooner or later you will realize that you need to care about your body.
Avoid eating junk, at least learn the basics of nutrition, build the muscles you need to feel yourself fit.
And it’s not about a few days, if you don’t have the constancy to dedicate even just 15 minutes a day to your body, you won’t even have the constancy to be successful in life.

- Don’t create contacts creates connections
In life you will meet many people, and the more you live the more you know; in the chaos of friendships and relationships that we have in life it is easy for many people to simply become contacts to which to write a message every now and then. Invest time in friendships you believe in and pick up the phone. When you meet an interesting new person, don’t limit yourself and try to make new connections every day. Value relationships that work and also learn to let go of unhealthy and useless relationships.
- Happiness is a choice
