Tom Bilyeu was a cofounder of a successful protein bar business. After exiting the business with millions of dollars, he decided to become an influencer and teach people how to become successful. Not only has he interviewed a lot of successful people, he, himself, has shared a lot of ideas about how to achieve excellence. Now, let’s take a look at some of his most amazing quotes and learn from them together.
Do you want to be the person that gets things done or do you want to be the one that spends all the time browsing social media? It’s your choice. If you can make yourself do things even when you don’t feel like it, that’s the power that can push you to succeed.
Success is often simple to understand but hard to do. Choose one thing and then spend a long time and a lot of hard work on it. You don’t always win with this, but that gives you probably the best shot.
You have to be confident in order to succeed. That doesn’t mean that you should be cocky and look down to others. It simply means that you are not afraid of failure but you know you can learn from it and move forward.
If you are doing what you love to do for your career, it’s very likely that you will succeed. Not everyone can become the richest man doing what he or she loves, but everyone gets the deepest level of joy doing that.
Why is it that we should never be afraid of failing? It’s because we can learn from our failures. Things that we learn from failures can make us stronger and make us move closer towards our goals.
If you are not the type of person that prioritizes things carefully and you record how you spend your time daily, you would find out what your priorities are on autopilot. Let’s say if you found out that you spent most of your time watching TV, ask yourself whether it aligns with your goal.
If you can’t think of your life purpose, there’s one that you can safely use. “Be the best version of yourself” is the goal you may want to have if you don’t have anything very specific. Make it a daily goal to be a little better than the day before.
Failure doesn’t matter much if you think long-term. It is there to move you closer to your goal if you choose to learn from it. Don’t frown. Learn from your failure and push yourself forward.
It’s not that talent is not important. But most of the time, it’s your consistent hard work that will bring you something that you have never dreamed of before.
You are basically a result of your daily habits. So, if you need to get somewhere, make sure your habits are pushing you towards your destination.
Who you are today doesn’t matter as much as who you are going to become. However, in order to become who you want to become, you have to give up something, whether it’s your time or your effort.
Let’s assume that both person A and person B are both good at the same thing. If person A is going to take calculated risk and person B decides to stay 100% safe all the time, person A is likely going to be the game changer.
If you want to achieve something, ask yourself how much time and effort you are going to spend in order to get it. Don’t expect that you can do very little and achieve something extraordinary.
Joy is the feeling of enjoying your journey to greatness. You are the one who can decide whether you are going to have joy or not.
If you really want to get something, just go figure out the price and then pay for it. Yes, there are only 2 steps. It’s simple but hard to do. No one said it’s going to be easy.
It’s really amazing how Tom Bilyeu has taken so much time, effort and money to spread the methods of living a meaningful life. He always said in his podcast that he wanted to “get people out of the matrix”. He also always emphasized the importance of having a “growth mindset”. If there is one quote that you need to take away from the above, it probably would be - “What price are you willing to pay for greatness?” Remember that if you are going to pay 6 months for your goal while your goal actually requires 5 years, you don’t have a chance of succeeding. Know what you need to pay to get your one thing. Decide to pay for it.
