The one thing I like predominantly about hanging around winners is that they force me to continue to seek ways to improve.

I remember reading about Sam Walton – the founder of the mighty Wal-Mart chain. He would make it his habit to regularly visit his competition, and if he ever found one idea that they were doing well, he would immediately adapt it and roll it out into his stores. He was always seeking ways to improve his business.

And that’s how we should live our lives. Whenever we come across a better or a smarter way of doing something we should adapt it to our lives immediately.

1. Change In An Instant

I come across so many people who complain about their current circumstances, and I must admit my response, in my mind at least, is change it.

Change – positive change – can occur in an instant if we simply decide to change, and then follow up that decision with decisive action.

Now yes there can be a state of paralysis by analysis that we can lock ourselves into, if we spend all our lives only evaluating.

But there comes a point where we need to rise up from evaluating, and initiate a plan of action, while positioning ourselves so that we’re accountable to others – to ensure that we get the deed done.

2. Seek Continual Improvement

Benjamin Franklin believed in continual improvement, so why not you and I? Always seek out ways to do better, be better and live better.

By working on yourself – your fitness, your mindset, your finances, your business, your relationships – ever seeking to make them better today than they were yesterday, is going to create within you a sense of continual achievement. This will in turn breed a state of happiness, because your life is always moving forward.

Here’s a formula for you to ponder on:

Decide To Change + Apply Decisive Action To Bring About That Change = Live A Happy & Fulfilled Life

A healthy tree is a tree that continues to grow – bearing much fruit. So too for us humans. So go ahead and grow, groW, grOW, gROW, GROW!

3. Understand The Benefits Of Hunger

But in order to grow you need to understand the benefit that arises from being hungry. It inspires the search. It initiates the hunt. It releases the motivator. It unveils the inspirator. It invites creativity, and it provokes innovation.

None of us like hunger pangs, but the very fact that we are hungry – for whatever reason – stirs us into action. There is an inbuilt mechanism that is set in motion to solve the problem, overcome the challenge, or climb the mountain that stands before us.

Hunger for the achievement of a goal. Hunger for the fulfilment of a dream. Hunger for the provision of a better life for you and your family. A hunger to be in the company of mentors and peers who have similar values to you.

4. Identify The Importance Of Making Right Choices

So stop feasting on failure. Refrain from partaking of that dinner called defeat. Pull away from feeding with fools. Wisdom says that there is a fast that you need to partake of if you’re ever going to be fully satisfied. And that place is the place called hunger.

For it is there that you will discover the greatest benefits. It is a chosen fast where you choose to delay gratification, so that when your win comes it comes in the form of a full and magnificent menu. And it is here that you can eat secure in the fact that you have paid the price, that you have walked the talk, and that you have done all this with a spirit of humility, integrity and with patience.

Honor the hunger and give it pride of place in your satiated life by making right choices.
