How to achieve greatness?


It takes a lot to accomplish greatness. We will help you through this journey by giving you some useful advice. It all starts by discovering yourself!

Discover yourself

Take the time to know yourself because it is only once you have achieved self-awareness that you become less suggestible, and so you are able to maintain your ambitions. Value yourself; know your worth, however accept your limits and know your weaknesses.

Write down your goals

Analyze your true needs, do not get distracted by immediate satisfaction or easy fixes. Try and limit yourself to three main goals at a time. Draft the path you choose to take, to reach your goals.

Work hard to reach them

If you don’t have all the competences then gain them. Keep yourself involved in the subject of your goals. Keep going, be constant, and keep on track. Nonetheless have the open-mindedness to reevaluate your work and adapt your path if necessary.

However work smart

A little change every day goes a long way.

For example, there are many ways to learn a new language, one option would be to immerse yourself, another would be to take a course but these solution are both very time-consuming and demanding. Yet if every day you learn a new word, understand the definition of this word and use it in a phrase, at the end of that year you will have learned 365 words, this is the Japanese concept of ‘Kaizen’ meaning ‘continuous improvement’.

Ask for help

Alone we go fast, together we go far. Put your ego aside and use every tool at your disposal. Seek advice from others that have achieved a goal that is common to yours, it could prevent you from making a common mistake or it may bring you comfort, knowing you are on the right path.

Accept mistakes

Grow and learn from them, if you learn something from your error then it is no more a failure, but an experience or a step towards your goal.

Pay it forward

Congrats you have made it, and what better way to celebrate then to help someone else achieve his or her greatness.
