Love what you do - Don't settle

Your work fills a large part of your life. The only way to be truly satisfied in life is to do what you believe is great work. The only way to do great work is to love what you do.

Have you ever known anyone who generated a fortune doing what they disliked, who truly enjoyed the experience? Have you ever seen exceptionally successful athletes, actors, or artists who hate what they do? There you have it—one of the secrets to becoming successful, rich, and famous.

Virtually all successful artists, celebrities, and athletes who have embodied their greatness have the absolute confidence and trust that come what may, they will one day reach the pinnacle of their professions. These people are able to perceive, know, be, and receive what they really enjoy in life. They know what they love to do. They are aware of who they are, what they are in love with, and what they wish to accomplish. This is what gives them their extraordinary positions in the world.

Break the Rules, Stand Out

Are you content to obey the rules and be in agreement with everyone else's point of view about how to create a successful business?

If you are, you are not alone. Most people have a powerful desire to fit in and a strong need to remain in good standing with the group—and they believe that they can maintain their good standing by conforming. Our entire upbringing has been about how to be in context with this reality.

Being in agreement with everyone else's point of view is the same as doing business-as-usual, following the norm, basing your decisions on past success or a fixed reference point, aligning yourself with conventional business models—all in an endeavor to achieve winning outcomes.

Unfortunately, when you seek to be in agreement with everyone else you will become the most average, the most nondescript and the most inoffensive. This doesn't lead to growth. 

Perception of loss or gain can influence your decision

Before you set off in making an important decision, you need to take a moment to become aware of your points of view about the situation or the problem at hand. You also need to become aware of how these points of view may limit your choices. You will be a victim to your points of view if you are not aware of them.
