Life isn`t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.   

George Bernard Shaw


1. Discover your strength

Acknowledging your strength and what you are good at will help you find what you can do well.  You know what you can do about it. There is a high potential for success when you do what you love instead of forcing yourself to do something you don’t like.


The only way to do great work is to love what you do.

If you haven`t found it yet, keep looking. Don`t settle.    

Steve Jobs


We all have our own strength and ability. It is your responsibility to unlock it, find your own passion, and ways to develop and adapt it for growth. The difference between success and failure is how we use our potential and the ability to pursue own life success.

We must believe that we are gifted for something,

and that this thing, at whatever cost, must be attained.     

Marie Curie


2. Know your weakness

Nobody is perfect.  Knowing your weaknesses helps you know what you need to improve. A weakness may slow you down but don’t let that stop you. Knowing yourself is wisdom. You know where you are going wrong.  You realize what you need for counseling or advice.


If you can`t fly then run, if you can`t run then walk, if you can`t walk then crawl,

but whatever you do have to keep moving forward.    

Martin Luther King Jr.


Do not let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do.   

John Wooden


3. Start small

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

Set a small realistic goal, complete it. Next, you will move to another goal and work towards an ultimate goal. Complete one thing at a time. You will always focus on what you will do and vision your goal.  Your accomplishments in a small goal will give you energy and power to move towards a big goal.


The elevator to success is out of order, you`ll have to use the stairs…one step at a time.   

Joe Girard


4. Overcome fear and shy

No one is great in the first place or good at birth. If you think you cannot do it, there is no way you will start. If you believe you can do, you will make things happen. When you believe you can, you’re halfway successful. It depends on your mindset.


In order to succeed, your desire for success should be greater than your fear of failure.    

Bill Cosby

In some societies, communities, or families, it may not be easy for someone to think or do things outside the norm. As long as your actions are not illegal or harm anyone, don’t be afraid to break the rules.  However, you should have strategies to get out of the comfort zones. You may need counselors or mentors. Your actions should not break relationships with your respectful persons, if not necessary.


You should never let your fears prevent you from doing what you know is right.     

Aung San Suu Kyi


Don’t be shy to do things differently or fear to fail.  The only way to grow is to start and learn from mistakes. If you do not have a starting point, there is no way to improve.


5. Be consistent

How many people can climb to the top of the tourist destination of the Great Wall in China? My partner could make it. It was a challenge on not only the long-distance, but the climbing caused extremely tiresome and fatigue in the legs. When he started the first step, a lot of people were around him. When he reached the top, he met only a few people. The key is focusing on the sub-goal, gaining experience, learning new strategies, keeping going, taking a break, and moving forward the final goal.

Being consistent and patient with yourself through the journey keeps you driven towards the small and big goals, one step at a time.

Along the journey, you will learn what works and what does not work. If you do not get the expected outcome, you will find ways to improve and get going. With non-stop learning and practice, you will gain experience and overcome the problems. It is more powerful if you are consistent with what you are doing.


“I hated every minute of training, but I said, `Don`t quit“.

Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.“   

Muhammad Ali


6. Turn a negative to the motivation

A coin has two sides. What a negative outcome or a discouraging circumstance you encounter, it is your choice to look at the flip side, which is more powerful. You can turn the negativity to the motivation and fuel your passion. Don’t let others stop you because of their irresponsible feedback. You are responsible for yourself and have the rights to adopt good ones. Let go bad emotions and preserve good ones. Recharge your energy and keep going by experimenting with new options.


I am thankful for all of those who said NO to me, it’s because of them I`m doing it myself.  

Albert Einstein


You will let go all the reasons it won’t work and believe the one reason that it will. If you lack of motivation, find resources or professions to guide you.


I didn`t fall the test. I just found 100 ways to do it wrong.  

Benjamin Franklin


A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new.   

Albert Einstein


7. Others can do you can do

Develop a mindset: others can do it, you can either. Practice makes perfect. No one accomplishes the goal since they were born. You will regret if you don’t even try because you worry about failure.

If you lack knowledge, search for it. If you need experience, practice. If you seek, you will find it. Get close to successful and optimistic people by any channels, such as associate with them, reading their books, and learning their experience.


Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve.   

Napoleon Hill


Believe in possibilities. Believe in human potential.

Believe in yourself and you`ll have the power to change your fate.   

Kevin Ngo


8. Turn obstacles to an opportunity

Nothing is 100 percent good or 100 percent bad. When you encounter a problem, be positive and look at the bright side. It will give you the power to consider the way out. No matter what and where you work, there are obstacles or problems. You must have patience and endurance. You will perceive that it is only a temporary circumstance and you can overcome.

The pain and difficulties reaching you today is the strength for tomorrow. All the challenges you encountered will develop your experience and there is an opportunity for growth.


There is only one way to avoid criticism: do nothing, say nothing, and be nothing. 



9. Give importance to what you do

Decide your goals, set deadlines, take action, and keep going. Always see your goals and pay attention on the outcomes of each step. Monitor and track the progress daily and assess the results for improvement and growth.

Procrastination is your enemy. You will organize your surroundings with many reminders. Put a goal reminder and deadline on the wall, the doors, or where you can see them every day. It will remind you to keep going.


Never leave that till tomorrow which you can do today.   

Benjamin Franklin


10. Persevere to the end

You have the potential to achieve your goals. You must have patience and perseverance. Persistence is something you learn and do. After the journey, it pays off.

Everyone has same amount of time and personal strength to pursue personal goals. The difference is confidence, persistence, and endurance. As long as you keep going and working towards your goals, you will eventually accomplish your life success.

Take action and be confident in your potential. Learn to grow and improve yourself along the journey. The result will happen provided you have focus and determination on the goals. Stay put and embrace the journey. You can do it!


To succeed, you must have tremendous perseverance, tremendous will. 

I will drink the ocean, says the persevering soul; at my will mountains will climb up. 

Have that sort of energy, that sort of will; work hard, and you will reach the goal.   

Swami Vivekananda
