Throughout life’s journey the mind creates success barriers. a barrier can be in the form of a limiting belief, limiting self-image or limiting behaviour.
Common success barrier examples include ‘the world is scarce so i shouldn’t try‘, ‘i am not good enough‘, ‘i am a fake‘, and procrastination habits.
These barriers exist to create a slow evolution of consciousness, and block you from success you are not prepared to handle. gradual growth of consciousness is essential in order to create a deep and strong foundation for success.
Throughout life’s journey push into these success barriers and increase the stress your emotions can tolerate. As a result you will achieve a greater perspective, and your mind can experience a more complex landscape.
The payoff is a real understanding of the world. Keep pushing.
Where is the time? Everybody has time.
People are loaded with excuses. People don’t have patience. People are giving up.
The fear of losing trumps the excitement of victory for so many people.
There is no reason to do shit you hate. What do you want to do everyday for the rest of your life? Now put a plan into action and hustle.
Hustle is putting all your effort into achieving the goal at hand and making everything count.
Hustle is putting it all on the line. It is waking up one day the day before you die knowing you gave it your all.
Hustle is the most important word ever.
Core confidence is derived from an ability to accurately predict future outcomes. This ability flourishes through the development of reference points. These are past experiences, whether positive or negative in their nature, which can be reflected on to help achieve future desirable outcomes.
The development of core confidence lends itself to the development of self-efficacy.
Self–efficacy can be defined as a person’s belief in their ability to succeed in specific situations or accomplish a task. Self–efficacy can play a major role in how a person approaches goals, tasks, and challenges.
After nourishing self-efficacy and subsequently self-esteem, any situation can be approached and handled with ease.
Stop caring about what others think and establish an identity, values and an ideal vision.
Every social construct within society is merely an interpretation or opinion created by everyday people – who is to say their interpretations are correct? Do what feels right and live life with confidence, free from external judgement or approval.
Are your daily habits and routines bringing you further toward your goals and dreams?
Are certain external influences motivating you and lending themselves to your overall hustle?
On the contrary, are there outside forces distracting you and reaping you of will power and your ability to get in the zone?
It is vital we address and eliminate small distractions responsible for unconsciously causing us to procrastinate and stagnate. For example, checking social media and texting multiple friends in small short intervals throughout the course of a day can compound itself over longer periods of time to deprive you of your laser focus and ultimately kill your energy. The human body only has so much fuel to burn everyday. It is important to ration and conserve this energy for the most important and meaningful tasks.
Create daily routines that positively influence your purpose and will power. Find and develop strong peer groups and social circles that compliment your vision and motivation.
Be the person who knows they did everything possible to make the best of their life.
Think of the people who earn six times as much as the average worker. Are they six times smarter? Do they work six times harder? If the answer is no, then the question “What do they have that the average worker does not?” may occur to you…
Author David Schwartz suggests the main reason why this distinction occurs is because the people who earn six times as much think six times BIGGER. We are all, more than we realize, the product of the thinking which surrounds us. For a large majority of the population this thinking is too little, and not BIG enough.
The Magic of Thinking BIG builds an individual’s confidence, mentality, vision of life and ultimately their ability to think BIG introspectively and extrospectively.

To raise your self-confidence you must raise your self-esteem.
Self-esteem can be described as your sense of worthiness, and can be identified as your reputation with yourself – what YOU think about YOU.
Top things to consider about self-esteem:
Your self-esteem cannot be generated externally
High self-esteem doesn’t compare itself to other people
You need to pick where your self-esteem comes from
Be the best version of YOU. Contribute to the continuous growth of your self-esteem by looking within yourself and trusted peers for answers and validation. When your thoughts and actions are congruent and aligned with a positive sense of worthiness and personal reputation, your self-confidence will hit an all time high!
