What to Study? If you wish to be successful, study success, if you wish for happiness, study happiness, wealth, study wealth.

Keep in mind, you may not be able to do all you find out, but you should find out all you can do, so that when you near the grave, you don’t regret that you only experienced 10% of all you were set to experience and have. By then, you will have no energy, will and time to pursue the remaining 90%. Find out all you can do, the full 100% set out for you. That is why you need to study, unlock your full potential, so that you don’t regret anything, and confidently say, you lived your life, period! Imagine that your find out the 90% went down the drain, not due to lack of opportunity, but due to lack of information that was there all along, and you just never took time to absorb and apply it. How painful will that be?

The best human virtue for finding out? Curiosity. Be curiosity. Childish curiosity. This is a virtue, when you got to know, be like a child. Most successful people are always reading books, and always try to learn something new. This places them ahead of majority of the population on earth. Join them, and also get ahead. We live in a world where we cannot complain about lack of access to information, because everything is designed to make information easily accessible. Be curious, ask questions, and always learn from those who have done it, feed from their experiences. This is an advantage because they went through "fire" so that you do not have to. Use that to y0ur advantage.

Go to work on things found out

Plan and execute your plans

You must now act on what you found out. Put together your game plan. Don’t operate off your mind, work from paper.

Take massive action. This will change everything. You got to have a better game plan. If not loaded with massive action, change it. However, sometimes you do not need to take massive action to succeed. We learn from atomic habits; small improvements everyday amass to big results over time. Therefore, work on forming habits that supports the new you. Where you want to see yourself in life? You will see on the article Redefine your Purpose, how you can set your own trajectory. It all starts with minor improvements, with those improvements, comes big results. However, depending on habits we have, some habits are hard to break than others, thus uneven amount of effort is needed in some cases, but what matters is we get to work on this we found out, apply them, and don't just be a blind follower, be an active follower.

Formula for Success: Take Heavy action on a good idea. This implies consistency, dedication, self-discipline, set small goals and celebrate small milestones.

Don’t let your learning lead to knowledge, you will become a fool, but let your learning lead to action and you will become wealthy. Imagine failing in life, yet having wealth of knowledge, but just not putting it into greater us? You are foolish!

Don’t try to beat the system

Find out how it works best and do it that way. Don’t try to take shortcuts. Run quick, be a quick learner. This implies constantly learning new things, in that way, you will find out all you can do.

Learn quicker, don’t be stubborn. Do things right. It is not about finishing early, but about finishing right. You do not want all your efforts to be wasted on trying to find shortcuts. If you want to grow, do it right, if you want to build relationships, do that right. If you feel you lack information, acquire information, don’t try to beat the system.

Understand that whatever you do now is an investment for your future, yourself, and why not do that right? Why not do the very best for yourself? It is not about others; it is about you. This can also be about other people. You could have people depending on you. Being at your best self implies better for them. Use that is another reason for being at your very best. This could be your kids, partner, parents, you name it. DO things right for you and them. Use whatever current circumstances that your endure as reason for doing better. DO NOT make any excuses, because with making excuses, you take the willpower away from you, and excuses and effectiveness cannot co-exist.

Being different is never easy, and do not expect things to be easy. There will be times we feel hard-pressed due to not perceiving results we want. Do not lose heart and apply what you have learnt. It may feel like you are not in control, but the fact you are taking charge of your own destiny by bettering yourself, means you are on the right track, so do things right. Sometimes it takes longer for us to see the results we want, this is better explained on the book, Atomic Habits by James Clear. He calls it 'The Plateau of Latent Potential'. Every single effort we make is stored and nothing is wasted. It may look like we are wasting time, because we are not seeing results we want as of yet, but all efforts are not wasted. They are stored somewhere, therefore, this combined with consistency and relentlessness, will sprout growth. Most people turn to give us way too easily and resort get-rich-quick schemes and tries to beat the system. This has never been a solution to any problem one faces. We do not want to gamble our lives, do things right and get guaranteed results.

You will soon see the benefits of your work; you will soon get the reward of your investment in yourself. You will see things change, change for the better, only if we do not try to beat the system, and do things right.

This system has been here long before we were born. Many have tried to beat it but failed. So, why do we not design our own system, that is a set of believes that govern our lives. This is called having a strong positive philosophy of life. Stick to it, live by it, it will sustain you.
