Sometimes, there happen things that you didn’t expect or want to happen. I’m not talking about great tragedies or an irrecoverable personal loss. No preparation is near enough for such things, nor can we avoid them completely.

But there are also much less important things that we constantly let affect us.

Inconveniences, plans gone wrong, planes delayed, a traffic jam on the road, the phone runs out of battery, someone lost the document you needed…

Little troubles. Almost always with a solution.

And they go from the most insignificant to the most frustrating ones. But they are still insignificant things.

Let me explain why you should drastically change your vision of these small events.

Every time you give it more importance than normal, every time you get obsessed or cannot stop thinking that something insignificant went wrong, you create a turbid and negative energy around you. You create a perfect environment for more things to go wrong: not only do you lose focus, but you also get in a bad mood, rude to those around you… and you attract more negativity.

But if think about what has just happened and the consequences with cold head, not even from a positive point of view, you’ll see that in reality, it is something that can be sorted out later or already had an easy solution at the time.

Things not going well the first time doesn’t mean that they will never work out, only that you should try another approach.

But facing life with a positive approach is not only to realize that it wasn’t really a bid deal, but also to be open to the fact that not everything will always come out millimetre-wise as we have planned. Be able to adapt and not to lose your smile and your motivation.

Enjoy every day and don’t let small disruptions in your plans ruin it all. In addition to living joyfully and in a good mood, you will be attracting more positivity to your life.

Therefore, remember: life is only a small part of what happens, and a greater part is how you react to it.

I’m leaving here a really inspiring video for you to understand where the law of attraction comes from.

How fast your team grows, develops, gets to the next level and generates sales, depends on you. You are going to establish the speed, but also its power and capacity.

It can be a relaxed bike ride, or it can be a high-speed train travelling across a whole country in a matter of hours: you can create a slow or a quick takeoff for your new members. And whatever pace you choose, it will be fine as long as you keep the following in mind: the movement shouldn’t stop. And for that, you must not stop.

Your team looks up to you, you are their main role model and inspiration, and it is your responsibility to keep the pace for the rest of the team. Keep the movement going starting with yourself.

However, when dealing with your team, you should always remember that you are not a boss or an authoritarian figure who should demand to keep the pace by imposing. It is also your responsibility to be there to help the team at the beginning. You should make an extra effort to push them forward until they acquire their own speed. But you will also be there for them later, as a companion, as someone the team can count on at all times.

From the higher to the lower ranks, your entire team will need your help at one time or another.

As a leader, you shouldn’t relax too much and get away from the team or let others under your charge do so. Although personal ambitions might vary from one leader to another, which is perfectly normal and understandable, what must always be the same is the level of commitment we have with the members of our team.

Each person you help achieve results is a powerful member of an increasingly powerful team.

You must also remember that a leader never stops learning. The new knowledge you gain will help you always maintain an active and successful team. What you learn is transmitted, and you always keep your mind open and provide a fresh and updated vision of everything.

In the end, being always there for your team doesn’t mean that your team depends on you in everything. It means that you can build a strong team, whose members, however, don’t hesitate to ask you for help, always knowing where to resort, but needing you less every time. A team of leaders able to do for others what you have done for them. Let them fly high and succeed… But without ever abandoning them.

After all, you will keep setting the pace for everyone, and being someone close, accessible and active is the best way to lead forward and non-stop.

I’m telling you this, and you may respond that you already know it. It’s obvious. But, do you know what it really means?

What I mean is that a leader, as a human being he or she is, is not perfect. And that imperfection is natural, normal and acceptable.

You must abandon the idea that in order to become a good leader, you must be someone who you are not, for starters, or someone nobody is.

As a leader, you must also feel free to be yourself. An increasingly improved version over time, through development and experience, but always yourself. Without repressing your feelings and without ignoring the fact of having your bad days and your good days. Simply accept your responsibility to improve what you can, or give yourself time to recharge your batteries.

As a leader, you have a vision and goals. But it’s even more valuable and realistic to be able to adapt to changes in plans or to analyze your progress “on the fly” and understand if you have to change something. If you’re wrong about something, it’s alright. No one asks you to know the answers to everything from the beginning.

You are not infallible. Nobody is infallible. And you will be able to achieve many more things if you open your mind to it, if you stop worrying thinking you cannot fail at a single step.

Whatever happens, whatever you do, there will always be someone who would have done it differently. You might do it better or worse, you might find a better way… But you will do it YOUR WAY.

You are a real person. With faults, feelings, opinions, experience… You are a person with dreams, a person willing to challenge yourself. As a leader, you don’t need to be perfect; you just need to do things from the heart and a genuine intention to keep learning.

Health, happiness and success are completely intertwined in our lives. By boosting some areas of your daily life, you will reinforce others as well. So, on your way to success, never forget to do it in a healthy way, in a positive way…

It is as simple as to pick up habits so as to make you healthier, happier and more productive… And in general, more successful.

  • Always eat breakfast and avoid bingeing or snacking on unhealthy things. Begin the morning with energy and with a good balance.
  • Eat healthier, your body and your mind will thank you. There are too many toxic things we eat that make us feel more tired, even though you think they are richer.
  • Drink more water. Are you able to drink at least 8 glasses of water a day? More hydration also means more vitality and more concentration.
  • Laugh whenever you can and smile at others.
  • Seize the day from early in the morning and go for a walk with the first light in the street. It is a natural and healthy way to “charge the batteries”.
  • Try new things; get out of your comfort zone more often.
  • You are never really too busy so as not to be able to stop to eat something healthy, to pay attention to your loved ones or to talk to someone who needs your help.
  • Stop comparing yourself with others. You are not like anyone else, and no one else is like you.
  • Be organized and tidy. Well-organized spaces help clear your mind, and being able to find something in a few seconds helps save time.
  • Sleep well: not too much, not too little. And learn to wake up naturally, without an alarm clock, after a few regular hours of sleep. It will take you much less to be active and clear every day once you get it right.
  • Worry less about the things you cannot fix, and even less about the things you can fix, just fix them.
  • Try to listen more and never interrupt others.
  • There are times when you have to turn off the phone.
  • And enjoy more small moments and daily joys.
  • Treat yourself to something you like once in a while, give yourself a present at special moments.
  • Think positive and speak positive.
  • Don’t be cruel to others, nor judge them.
  • Do something for your goal every day, and the earlier you do the most important things or the hardest, the better.
  • And above all, never stop dreaming.

If you are already working to change your life and you are in the process of going for your goal, these rules will be much more than useful; they will be vital.

These are the rules that you must self-impose so as to keep the wind blowing in the sales of your boat, to keep running the engine that drives you on the road to success.

Rule number 1: Work without stopping.

Well, of course you can stop, have rest, and take time for your family. But one of the most important things to boost your business is that you spend many hours working and put lots of perseverance in the first few months. This is the part where you are building yourself as a networker and where you are discovering what you are like in the business. Massive action may seem exhausting, but it is necessary in the process and will help you have results as soon as possible.

Rule number 2: If you are confident and believe in yourself, there is at least one person who already does.

It shouldn’t matter too much if they tell you that you don’t have what it takes or that you have your head in the clouds. Trust yourself; believe that if you’re not good at something, it is because you still have to learn more; and that if you’re good at something, you can improve it even more. Believe in yourself, and others will open their eyes. In addition, your confidence in yourself will make things much easier: your confidence will reflect on how other people see you and will open more doors.

Rule number 3: Farewell to negativity, and negative people.

This rule has a lot to do with the previous one. You must let go negative thoughts, pessimism and listening to people who only tell you negative things. Replace it with educational and self-improvement activities, things that make you happy, more prepared and confident to continue the journey.

Rule number 4: Don’t be afraid of failure.

The fear of failure can become an obsession that prevents you from taking the most important steps. Instead, failure is a natural thing in the process of growing better. Allow yourself to fail, and you will act knowing that you are going to get it right… or you will learn.

Rule number 5: Break some rules!

Not these, of course. It is about relaxing from time to time, not wanting to do everything strictly according to the textbook and giving yourself some free time to discover other ways.

Happiness is not the end of the road; it’s not the final prize we must win. Happiness is, in fact, the mood that should be natural in all people. And it is also one of the best tools to fulfil your dreams, plans and make other people happy too.

Happiness is a raw material that we use to create thousands of wonderful things in life. But as a material, it needs space. It needs a lot of space where to be able to grow, to be able to create. But we are constantly stuffing that space with other things that don’t do us any good.

If you want to make more room for happiness to grow and help you grow, you have to set yourself free…

From the opinions of other people.

Constantly trying to meet the expectations of others and not your own ones is a very suffocating way of living. It doesn’t leave room for your dreams, nor even to breathe calmly in your own skin. Break free from the need to live according to the opinions of others, so you can be free to discover how you really want to live your life.

From the past.

The past has already happened. It had its good things and its bad things, but you shouldn’t live those good past things again and again so as not to face the control of your future. Nor can you constantly avoid negative memories to keep yourself from making decisions or moving forward. The past is there to know where we come from, to see the way travelled, to learn from the good and from the bad, but always looking forward, not backward.

From fear.

The fear of “what if I’m wrong?” The fear of “what if I’m not good enough?” And all those fears that become anxiety about the future. If you’re wrong, you’ll learn something. If you’re not good enough, it is because you were not fully prepared, not because you will never achieve it. All those questions have their answer, and the answer is that it’s ok. Because no matter what happens, there will always be another opportunity, another day, and any setback only makes you stronger. Stop fearing and you will begin to experience, to grow and to live.

From criticism.

You cannot have a positive and happy life if you have negative and destructive behaviour towards others. Stop judging and criticizing and save that energy to create positive changes in your life and in that of those around you.

From excuses.

There is no excuse, be responsible for what you do and what you don’t do. If you can change something, change it.

From mourning.

If you have time to complain about it, you have time to find a solution. Activate the most positive part of your brain, always look for solutions and your problems will cease to exist because they will no longer be problems, just puzzles to solve.

From the restrictions.

Not only the limits that you set mentally with your insecurities, but also the bonds that you create when you decide to make a plan that has no room for change. From those walls that you create around yourself when you want everything to work out in a very strict way and you are not flexible, when you are not open to change. You restrict your path to a single straight line when life is something larger and full of infinite paths and intersections.

Get rid of all that and you will be able to enjoy life much more and able to make any project a reality. You will stop seeing the negative side in situations and in people; you will have a more creative and resolute mind. You will see the world full of infinite possibilities. And you will be happier and, consequently, much more successful.
