My Success Principles

In a world where everything is changing rapidly, our core principles form the foundation that keeps us sane and helps us navigate uncertain times. The following are my personal principles that are my guides each and every day. I strive to live by them, I am inspired by them and I am continuously working on them. My success principles form the basis of my life and business!

#1 Honesty

To tell the truth and face the consequences, rather than lie to myself and others and live a life of quiet desperation.

#2 Long-Term

Think about the long game. To do the things that are right from a long-term perspective, that bring man closer to his goals.

#3 Start with Yourself

To act responsibly and take responsibility for your own life, before blaming others. 

#4 Regeneration

Once a while do something for your own regeneration, something virtuous or purely entertaining.

#5 Face Your Fear

When there is a fear of something that will bring me closer to my goals, I step through my fear and do it anyway! Do something uncomfortable, every day.

#6 Time

To value my own time above all. To protect it from travelling to places I don’t want to go, seeing people I do not desire to see. To not half-heartedly waste time, rather, ‘Seize the Day’ and live passionately.

#7 Good Enough

To understand that you are good enough. You do not need to prove anything to anyone. Period.

#8 Stoic

To resist the pleasure of the moment in exchange for the greater good. 

#9 Integrity

To say what you mean and mean what you say. To Do what you say, you are going to Do. To hold yourself accountable, to yourself and to others. To stay true to ones values.
