The Secret Of The Soldier You Should Know

If you lose one battle, don’t give up.
Get up again, you have a war to win.
S. M.

You may think: “Why are we talking about soldiers today? That’s too much for me, I’m not that strong, I’m not a hero. I’m just a normal person who lives a normal life in a normal city with a job, a family and a house, like everyone else. I’m not strong enough to become a soldier.”

I want you to understand that you can be a soldier if you want.
And I want to share with you what I call the secret of the soldier.
What I mean with the word soldier is a valorous, determined and firm individual, who doesn’t let anything or anyone stop him or her.

A soldier gets hurt all the time, but keeps fighting and doesn’t even think of abandoning. And this is his secret: the strong tenacity and determination, in spite of his wounds.
A soldier doesn’t let the future and the adversities scare him, and always has the courage and strength to face his battles.

But we all get hurt, and quite often, and we all should keep going and face our daily challenges, exactly like a soldier.
This is why, when things don’t go the way you expected, all you have to do is to act like a soldier, and bear the pain of your wounds, because you are alive and you have a war to win: you have to achieve what you always wanted in your life.

Remember that you can overcome anything, if you decide to.
So, be a soldier, never give up, and fight your war until the end.

3 Ways to Improve your Self-Discipline

I don’t stop when I’m tired. I only stop when I’m done.
Marilyn Monroe

Self-discipline is everything if we want to successfully complete something we began. But it’s not always so easy to respect a schedule.
It’s our ability to resist to bad conditions, and our mental toughness that make us strong. And this strength that we see in successful people can be learned and developed.

1 Write your to-do list while you are having breakfast
This is a good habit, and as soon as you will get used to it, you will find it pleasant and challenging. Plus, you will realize how something so simple can be so useful.
You don’t like to have breakfast in the morning? Well, I strongly recommend you to have breakfast, because it’s not just “important”, it’s vital, if you want to be productive!

2 Cross all the items off your list
This will make you feel good and satisfied, and when you won’t be able to cross an item, you will feel a bit “guilty”.
Sounds sneaky? No, it’s only an efficient way to train yourself and your self-discipline.

3 Visualize what you will be in the future thanks to what you are doing today
The most important point. It’s a bit difficult to work hard when you don’t have a purpose in your life.
In other words, you need something to desire so much that you will feel motivated and you will be productive.

When you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe, then you’ll be successful.
Eric Thomas

Mental Toughness

Mental toughness is a collection of attributes that allow a person to persevere through difficult circumstances (such as difficult training or difficult competitive situations in games) and emerge without losing confidence.
[Wikipedia]

Very interesting!
But, how can I develop my mental toughness?
It’s not easy, and it’s not something you will build overnight.

Anyway, if you really want to succeed and you are learning to think big, it might be much easier than in normal conditions.
The important thing – or even better, the vital thing – is that you never give up, believe in what you armountaine doing and strongly desire to reach your “holy destination”, this is, your life goals, or your personal mission.

As Stephen Covey, said in his masterpiece “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People”, you need to begin with the end in mind, and visualize what you want in the future so that you know exactly what to make a reality.

When you really want to achieve a goal or realize a dream, and you have the right tools, the right habits and a strong motivation, believe me, nothing will stop you.
And you already know that, you only needed me to remind you that 😉

5 Secrets to Increase your Productivity and to See Results

Have you ever thought that being productive and attain success could be simpler than you imagine?

The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.
Lao Tzu.

This is, you only have to go towards what your goal is, step by step.
But you have to do it. You have to…

1 Take action.
Every minute you’re wasting your time checking the social networks or your mobile phone, you’re not taking action getting you closer to you dreams.
Sometimes we prefer immediate and temporary pleasure instead of consistent and permanent success – which in psychology is also called “delayed gratification” – and we procrastinate.

2 Do not procrastinate.
Procrastination is the worst enemy of productivity.
Every time you are looking for an excuse to postpone a task you should do – and every time you find an excuse to postpone your daily tasks – you are giving space to procrastination.
This is the worst error ever, and you should eliminate this attitude from your routine if you really want to increase productivity and attain success.
Remember the to-do list? If you plan every day your list and you stick to it, it will be the best tool ever to avoid procrastination.

3 Find the right motivation.
If you don’t have the right amount of motivation, it will be really hard to be productive, and it will be easier to procrastinate: you have to know exactly where you want to go, and you have to walk every day towards what I call your “holy destination”.

4 Have a plan.
You should know exactly what you have to do every day, every week and every month.
You should plan your activities in advance in order to efficiently manage your time – instead of wasting it.

5 Never give up.
Remember that real success takes time.
And that giving up is the worst enemy of success and self-esteem.
Sometimes it happens that, after days, months or years of efforts and work, we give up, just because we can’t see results. Sometimes it happens that, in the very moment success is right around the corner, we can’t see it, and since we are exhausted, we decide to give up.
This is why I want you to understand how important it is to never give up.
I want you to look at this image and download it if you want to, because it represents exactly the importance of being resilient and insist on your goals.
I have it in my cell phone and I look at it every time I need to feel motivated and it always makes me feel energized.

Never give up
So, don’t forget to print out this article, and to look at it every day.
Hope it will accompany you in your travel towards success!
