Success, or what you define as success, financial or otherwise, are a direct result of behaviours. The small tasks, the habits you do every day create an environment of motion and progress.
Do you want financial success? Spend less than you make every day.
Do you want to be mentally free to focus on family on the weekends? Use your time and task management system religiously. Don't stray.
Do you want to learn how to code so you can open up an online shop? Practice every day. Just 30 minutes a day adds up to almost 3.5 hours a week.
The only barrier to success is ourselves. "I don't have time" or "I'm so busy" end up just being excuses.
“You will never change your life until you change something you do daily. The secret of your success is found in your daily routine.”
– John C. Maxwell
I'm say this as much to myself as anyone: just do it. Success won't come by accident.
