Use all of the resources available to you, but don't expect to just flip a switch and get them all cranking on autopilot. No. You've got to learn how to best use these resources to your smartest advantage.
Keep it real. Strive for authenticity in everything you do. At the end of the day, the more humility and integrity you put out into the world, the more you'll connect with others who'll want to help you succeed.
Learn (and embrace!) the power of optimization. Make the very best use of your time, energy, actions, opportunity, costs, and capital. One of the most precious resources available to you, at absolutely no cost, is time - don't waste it.
Take the time to understand an appreciate everyone you meet on your path to success. Show that you get how things are from their perspective. Tell them that you're rooting for them. Show them that you have their best interests in mind. They will respect you for respecting their reality, and who knows, maybe they will go out of their way to do the same for you.
Make the probability of your success a natural part of your thinking. Expect it.. Will it so. Why? Because good things come to those expecting them. Now, that doesn't mean that we only make room in our thinking for pie-in-the-sky outcomes. No, this means you need to train yourself to visualize, keep your goals in sight and in reach. It means that you must believe wholeheartedly that your success is within you. Keep this thought at the front of your mind. Model your approach after successful individuals. Each and every one of them had a low point, and yet each and every one of them found a way to pick themselves up and move on. Know that you can too. Know that you must.
