Karl Moore is an Internet entrepreneur and the author of five bestselling books.His newest book,The Secret Art of Self-Development
is about how you need to think to be successful.
Many people don’t go for their personal or professional dreams because they’re limited by the past, Moore says.
The first step? Stop feeling sorry for yourself.
Moore says that before you can achieve anything, you have to let go of self-pity. This can mean anything from complaining about your looks to worrying about your job. Instead focus on making life better.
Moore says a religion can be any way of life--spiritual or not. Don't follow rules that don't make sense if they're going to hold you back. Look outside the box.
Most people think restriction is the key to success, so they say no to experiences that could be fun. Stop 'swimming against the current' and go with the flow.
Don't resist change. As an entrepreneur, it's important to realise that everything has a beginning and an end. Be proactive and open to making beneficial changes in your life and business.
Try mood-boosters like happy music during the day. Take dance lessons. Spend your money on being social instead of on material goods. All will make you happier, Moore says.
Moore says you don't need a single, brilliant idea to be successful. Instead work on the more manageable task of being happy and better at your job every day. Take steps toward your goals.
