“Don’t just sit there. Do something. The answers will follow.” – Mark Manson
Quit trying to sit there and solve problems without going out and doing it. While planning is important, remember this… money loves speed.
If you want to make more money, start making more moves, more calls, pitching more clients, and taking more initiative. If you want to lose weight, start working out today, even if you only run 100m.
Stop banging on the door of success, if you want to open it, you need to turn the handle first.
“You cannot be a powerful and life-changing presence to some people without being a joke or an embarrassment to others.” – Mark Manson
Quit trying to please everyone and start going after the people that you know you can help or inspire. If you try to please everyone you’ll probably end up pleasing no one in the process.
At the end of the day, people will judge you regardless of what you do, don’t let them affect your life. Be true to yourself and I know the right people will enter your life.
“Don’t hope for a life without problems. There’s no such thing. Instead, hope for a life full of good problems.” – Mark Manson Quotes
If you’re hoping for a life that’s simple and easy without problems, think again. Life is filled with problems even for ultra-successful people, millionaires, and even billionaires.
Instead of thinking about not having problems, focus on having bigger, cooler, more unique problems. Remember the problems you have are someone else’s dreams. You can solve anything with the right attitude and outlook.
“If you’re stuck on a problem, don’t sit there and think about it; just start working on it. Even if you don’t know what you’re doing, the simple act of working on it will eventually cause the right ideas to show up in your head.” – Mark Manson Quotes
I love this Mark Manson quote! So many people, even high achievers at times, try to think their way through problems. This almost never works.
Instead, take consistent action to start solving the problem. You might not solve it instantly but with momentum comes confidence. And with confidence comes clarity to help you figure out more of your problems.
“If you think about a young child trying to learn to walk, that child will fall down and hurt itself hundreds of times. But at no point does that child ever stop and think, “Oh, I guess walking just isn’t for me. I’m not good at it.” – Mark Manson
Adults seem to think that failure isn’t okay and that it’s embarrassing. But the truth is that most successful people just failed quicker and more often than those who aren’t willing to do so. Get comfortable “failing” so you can find success much quicker in life.
Use these Mark Manson quotes to start taking risks, betting on yourself, and going after life. Remember, life’s not about proving anything to anyone else or trying to get everyone to like you. It’s about you learning, growing, and impressing yourself!
