1: Be resilient
Things rarely work out the way you planned and there will always be distractions and stumbling blocks that you have to deal with when you are on your road to success. The key point to remember is to persist and to develop the courage to move on, even when everyone around you is telling you its ok to give up. This does not mean stubbornly holding on to your original plan but rather continuing to pursue your goal as long as the reasons for doing so are still valid ( make sure you know the why of what you want).
When everything seems to be going wrong, keep in mind this “the road to success is paved with a thousand failures”
so each failure actually brings you closer to where you want to be.
