Put All Your Eggs In One Basket

You may have heard the advice not to put all your eggs in one basket. Diversifying your interests and money is a concept which reinforces the idea of division to reduce risks and eventually succeed in one or the other thing you’re doing. However, this is a mistake. It has been proven that most successful people did indeed put all their eggs in one basket.



Burn Your Boats

You may have heard about the great emperor Alexander who landed on the shores in Persia only to face a huge army and realize he was outnumbered. His men pleaded that they go back but Alexander ordered the boats to be burnt and declared that they would die or go back in Persian boats.

To succeed you need to have a one track mind. You need to give your venture your undivided attention, invest every egg in it and then never look back. Remember, Robert Frost said,

The best way out is always through Click to Tweet

Practice Makes Perfect

Malcolm Gladwell said that it takes about 10,000 hours of dedicated practice to truly master a skill. Don’t be disheartened when you start doing something and it doesn’t yield the best results.

Remember, the people who succeeded like Bill Gates did not simply have blind luck or only talent, rather it was their dedication to the work they chose.

Make Failure A Stepping Stone

Never be deterred by failure. Here is an event and quote from the life of Thomas Edison

It quotes Edison’s friend and associate Walter S. Mallory:

“I said: ‘Isn’t it a shame that with the tremendous amount of work you have done you haven’t been able to get any results?’ Edison turned on me like a flash, and with a smile replied: ‘Results! Why, man, I have gotten lots of results!

I know several thousand things that won't work! Click to Tweet

Edison is said to have failed 1000 times in his quest with the light bulb but he was known for his determination and failure to give up.

Even Michael Jordan, the famous basketball player has admitted to failing more than most to get where he is today.

When you give yourself several options, your focus is lost. To win at something you need to put your whole drive and energy into mastering it.
