A person’s success is determined by the way he thinks and acts. These truths are indispensable in the mind of every entrepreneur who is getting the results they want.

It’s no secret that successful people have a different mindset than the rest and are willing to take on more than they are capable of. Certain truths can have a profound impact on how we see our situation and where we want to go. These are only a few of the truths.

There is a plethora of books about the mindset of “millionaire mind” that often draw similar conclusions to the ones in the following points. I agree with Harv T.Eker, author of “The Millionaire Mind”, Timothy Ferris author and investor, Seth Godin marketing guru and many more.

  1. “Someday” is a disease that will take your dreams to the grave. Waiting to see the universe align with your plans to start that project or move on to the next stage of your life is just another excuse to not know if you are truly good at what you want to do.
  2. Nothing is impossible if you are willing to dedicate the necessary time and effort. We know it’s not easy, and we’ll be tempted to quit. However, it’s possible to achieve anything if you are determined to make a difference.
  3. The cost of being wrong is less than the cost of doing nothing. Seth Godin’s quote reminds us that slowing down is better than being static. It is because you are moving that you make mistakes.
  4. The person who wants it the most is the one who ends up winning. Being the smartest and most talented person, or having the most money is not enough. It is the person who doesn’t give up, who shows passion, who will be the most successful.
  5. Being around negative people is the best way to lose creativity and motivation. The environment we live in has the power to influence our behavior. This is why demotivation is the #1 reason people feel bored. Find your tribe. These are the people who believe in you and drive you.
  6. Nobody decides something for you. You are responsible for all your actions. Don’t be a victim. It is time to realize that you are responsible for all aspects of your life, successes and failures.
  7. The key to happiness is progress. While many people could believe that happiness is found in a life of endless relaxation, where there is no more to do than rest, the truth is that such a situation would be extremely boring. The key to human happiness is progress, and everyone has the power to control it.
  8. What you focus on expands. Harv T.Eker explains it in “The Millionaire Mind”. He says that complaining can make you a magnet for misfortune. Psychology Today has shown that gratitude is a powerful tool to turn your brain around and help you see opportunities instead of obstacles.
  9. Your income can only grow as far as you do. Most people don’t reach their full potential. Your income will reflect your determination to learn and invest in yourself.
  10. The best things in life are on the other side of fear. Will Smith spoke about his experience in Dubai skydiving. When he talks about his experience in Dubai skydiving, Will Smith mentions that the greatest things in life are often on the opposite side of what scares us most. These are the steps that free us and are something we must take constantly.
  11. The acts you do when no one else is looking at you is what determines your trajectory. Your life’s trajectory is determined by the little actions you take every day, especially when no one else is looking at you.
  12. The opposite of happiness is not sadness, it is boredom . In his book “The 4-hour work life”, Tim Ferris describes it this way: Boredom is a real enemy of both our personal and professional lives. Your creativity and productivity will suffer if you don’t find what you are doing “exciting”.


How many of these truths do you accept and put into practice in your life? All of us have the ability to adapt to new ideas and to improve our lives. Progress is the key to happiness.
