According to Ghanian superstar actress Jackie Appiah, if you want to be successful in life one must adapt these points.
Give up your need to impress others
Stop trying to impress others with your lifestyle. Be yourself, live a happy real life and people will love your realness. Trying to impress people only works against us, people sense inauthenticity and we only make ourselves look insecure and unattractive.
Give up your resistance to change
There are few constants in life and change is not one of them. Change is necessary for self-development; both mentally and physically if you want to live a happy life.
At our work places, change is crucial if you want to get recognition and promotions. You can get quality education to make your CV rich and get the better understanding of the business world. If nothing changed, everything would become stagnant and never improve.
Give up on your fears
Fear is a dangerous intangible thing that can hinder your progress and affect your relationships. There’s no cure for courageousness but if there was a remedy for fear, it is courage. “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself – Roosevelt.”
Replace fear with love and curiosity, and watch yourself grow rich in experience.
Give Up Self-Depreciation
Life is beautiful. Regardless of the situation, you are in now, don’t ever think the worst of yourself. Patience is a virtue and it will help you deal with the discomfort in a way that best suits your life and the people around you.
Undervaluing yourself ruins confidence and it will be very difficult to rise from your sorry state. Why don’t you inspire yourself and work hard to achieve your dreams?
Give up thinking small
Always think outside the box when it comes to work-related issues, new projects and dealing with people. We are all born genius but others fail to succeed because of their limited thinking. Don’t be over-impressed by your past glories. Try to beat your past records and create a niche for yourself in your respective field.
