PATRICK VIEWS- YOU ARE WHAT YOU DO

 

https://patrickrealstories.files.wordpress.com

I look at successful billionaires and always ask this question, what did they do different?
How did they achieve this much success and money? People usually say “It all destiny, they were lucky”. I could take any answer for my questions, but not when destiny is involved.

I am a strong believer that everyone makes their own destiny, from a beggar on the street to the president of a country. Everyone sees the end result, but no one sees the effort that has gone behind that success.

Did these successful people had it easy?

Nope I don’t think so. So what it is that differentiate them from the rest of us?

Also, what is it that we can do to at least start to be like them?

1. You are your own limit – Yes, you can have everything you want in life, if you don’t put limitations in your brain.

2. You don’t know what to do – You have a goal, but you don’t know how to go about achieving it. Well, maybe you haven’t researched enough. Breathe and live your goals. Don’t rest till you find out how and what you need to do to achieve your goals.

3. The law of cause and effect – For every cause there is an effect. Everything happens because of an underlying reason. You want to be rich? Follow a life history of a person who rose from rags to riches. You want to be a successful entrepreneur, imitate a successful entrepreneur you know.

4. it’s not going to be easy – Make peace with it. it will require an extra effort. You have to push yourself again and again. Find time to do what you want to do. Your comfort zone is your biggest enemy. Do it yourself.

5. Don’t forget your values – Last but most important. Don’t ever forget you are made up of. If its feels wrong, most probably it is. You think it is wrong as those are your values.

  5. I think it’s important to reevaluate what we want consistently. When I was in my 20-30’s my definition of success is much different than it is now. My contribution is discover what you are passionate about and start from there. Whatever it is, keep your eye on whatever your intimate goal is and take steps to implement them. And to remember it rarely a linear process. Great post my friend!

    Every rich man billionaire , hardship to be taken in account in life by every individual person in our society.

    They never share stress or problem with anyone , not even with family members , reason own stress manage themselves.

    we read articles so many billions earned but their worked day and night, hard work we forget to mention in it, nothing comes so easy in life .

    They plan object and try to achieve those goals, a lot of failures they face in the beginning , but cannot give up ,

    Until they reach their goals.

  14. 1. Contribution, Opinion & Views: Great piece, the kind that left me smiling. My favorite points are the Law of Cause and Effect, indeed, to every cause, there’s an effect hence, the need to think through well before taking any action on anything.

    You are your own limit, something we should all know and have control on.

    2. The things I do that depicts who I am are;
    a. Standing for the truth no matter what it takes or cost
    b. Throwing away kindness, love is supposed to live among us and to continue this mantra, one must care and be kind to all.

    Lovely piece that is well read. Kudos!

      Am so glad that I had to reply on it.

      This is the part I love so much as I quote:

      “””” Standing for the truth no matter what it takes or cost.””””

      This is the part where most people fall victim of. Is all about integrity and your person. Your YES should be your YES likewise your NO should be your NO.

      Am happy I did a write up on that also based on INTEGRITY. You free to check on that.

      The second part where I like again is the part of love, where you said:

      “””” Throwing away kindness, love is supposed to live among us and to continue this mantra, one must care and be kind to all. “”””

      Love supersede all. Where there is love others virtues like kindness,patience, humility follows.

      You contribution on the write up/post are just OK and good. Love that in you. I appreciate that very much and your time.

      I hope you have a wonderful and relaxing Tuesday. This word just made my morning well.

Love honestly is a big challenge in our societies, it will shock you to know that, even the church no longer practice Love (well, some not all). It’s a sad thing though but yes, all isn’t lot yet, we can still change the world with our little efforts wherever we find ourselves.

    2. Thank you for your thoughtful response. I hope I am not too harsh, but I think it is harmful in the end to hold unrealistic beliefs and expectations. ——. I don’t think I need to show who I am. I’ve written three novels which are inescapably me, and my music is clearly my self. But my hope in these efforts is to create something of beauty and to entertain rather than to show who I am. All the best!
