Set clear goals: Identify what you want to achieve and set specific and measurable goals to help you get there. Write them down and create a plan of action.
Develop a growth mindset: Be open to learning and embrace challenges as opportunities to grow and improve. Be willing to take risks and step out of your comfort zone.
Build strong relationships: Network and build relationships with people who can support and encourage you in your goals. Surround yourself with positive and supportive people who believe in you.
Take action: Take consistent and deliberate action towards your goals. Break them down into smaller steps and focus on making progress every day.
Stay focused and disciplined: Stay focused on your goals and avoid distractions that may hinder your progress. Develop discipline and consistency in your actions and routines.
Embrace failure: Understand that failure is a part of the journey towards success. Learn from your mistakes and use them as opportunities to improve and grow.
Stay motivated: Stay motivated and inspired by regularly reminding yourself of your why and the reasons why you want to achieve your goals.
Remember, success is not achieved overnight, and it requires hard work, dedication, and persistence. By following these tips and staying committed to your goals, you can become successful in whatever you choose to do.
Discipline is the big word here. For you not to limit yourself, you need to set your sights further and higher than where you currently are at any given point on time. Discipline is the skill of sticking to your plan and principles. Assuming that you are still a very young student, I'm sure you will have the opportunity to move your goal post forward many times.
Today I would recommend that you start by establishing a few "guiding principles" between three (3) and five (5) personal qualities you have (or want to have) and always evaluate your goals and actions against those. You can call those your "Core Values". What this is going to do is to establish a basic but powerful element of discipline that you can expand into more complex activities.
There are many to choose from. My own, for example, are "Loyalty", "Competence" and "Persistence". Yours can include one or none of those because there are many others. Because you are talking about not having limits, you maybe could adopt "Growth" and check any plan or decision you make against it. In this case you would ask yourself: "by pursuing X, Am I pursuing Growth?" and so on.
This is just to get started, the road to a limitless attitude will be paved with doubts and real setbacks, but if you have the discipline of always checking against your plan, and that plan is checked against your "Core Values" you will, invariably; go over your doubts and recover from setbacks.
Good Luck !!
Excellent question, and you have received many pieces of good advice. My suggestion to you is that you first need to define what success is. That may seem a waste of time, as 'everyone knows success', but that isn't true. I encourage you to take the time, possibly several hours or days, and write down - it needs to be in print, so you can see and confirm it - what life will be like if you are successful. Avoid simple words such as 'happy' or 'rich'; instead, focus on your life and what it will be like. You may find that having a lot of money isn't part of it, but whatever you define will then give you ideas on how to achieve that. We can offer suggestions on how to reach your goals in life, but a thorough review and definition first by you will be the major document. I wish you the best.
1) READ. READ. READ. Be curious. Build a passion for research. Investigate. But again, READ. You will learn from different subjects from the career you are going to study or you are studying at and you will become more savy.
2) RESEARCH about the CAREER you want to study. Visit websites of universities, colleges, etc. see what would you like to study and get information. It's easy now with the computer. Everything is a click away.
3) Look for a MENTOR. If you don't have a person you could ask for advise, see a famous professional or in books and follow him or her.
4) Be persistent and don't stop LEARNING.
Relationships will form around what you do and how you go about it. That is a good barometer.
Don't try to do it alone but remember the journey is uniquely yours.
