“Every day, I force myself to do something that is out of my comfort zone.

Aim for work/life balance
“We think, mistakenly, that success is the result of the amount of time we put in at work, instead of the quality of time we put in,” writes Arianna Huffington in Thrive, her book on favoring life in the work/life balance.
Consult with a mentor
According to billionaire Richard Branson, “every entrepreneur needs a good mentor.” Whether it is a trusted friend, a family member on an entrepreneur you seek out for advice, it is important to have someone you can turn to in good, bad and difficult times.
“As you start your journey, the first thing you should do is throw away that store-bought map and begin to draw your own.” Dell Computers CEO Michael Dell spoke these words in his address to the University of Texas graduating class in 2003.
Don’t Attach Yourself to Other People’s Opinions – Positive or Negative
“I am self-propelled; fueled from within. I appreciate people’s opinions, but I’m not attached to them. I learned a long time ago that if I give them the power to feed me, I also give them the power to starve me.” – Steve Maraboli, via Forbes Top 20 MultiMillionaires to Watch in 2020
