10 Principles of Billionaires That Should Be Adopted to Succeed

Progress has simplified many things. Shopping and booking on the internet, automated home appliances, modern means of communication – all this saves our time and efforts considerably. However, often the difficulties in life are provoked not by external circumstances but by ourselves.

  • “The desire to complicate things is your enemy. Everyone can create something complex. It’s hard to do something simple.” – Richard Branson

Somebody complicates their lives through the sense of guilt, others through unpleasant people with whom they have to communicate, the last ones through the desire to please everyone. At the base of many “complicators,” there is the main word “must!” Problems arise not only when we are sure that we owe something to others but also when we think that others — and the world in general — owe us something. A person must breathe, drink water, and eat in order not to die if he wants to live. That’s it. There should be no “must” in any other situation.

4. Set priorities.

It is impossible to be successful in everything. If you plan to sell gingerbread cookies in a pastry shop but do not know how to bake them, you do not need to learn a new skill. Perhaps, it will be more effective to find an expert in gingerbread baking and begin working together.

  • Elon Musk believes in solar systems but understands that he doesn’t have enough strength for everything. That’s why he dedicated himself to Tesla and SpaceX, while the SolarCity project is managed by other specialists. On Mondays and Thursdays, Musk goes to the office of SpaceX, and on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, he visits the Tesla office.

The habit of prioritizing is useful not only in work but also in other aspects of life. If you have a lot of things to do, do not try to do everything at once – focus on one thing. If you decided to spend an evening with your family, do not get distracted by work and friends. The desire to succeed in everything will not only lead to failure but will also consume your energy.
