The first thing you must need is a mindset to succeed. Without the proper mindset it doesn’t matter how many books you read or how much advice you gain because you will never use it.
You already know how to succeed; it is very likely you have gained enough tools you just do not use them.
Really look hard at your life. How much further would you have been if you followed even half of the things you knew would improve your life? If you do not have the right mindset you will keep going in this spiral.
The mindset is what will make or break your own success. Without the right mindset you will fall off and give up on yourself the first chance you get.
The essence of a strong mindset is divided into 3 main points:
An Unquenchable Thirst For More.
Always improve, never stagnate and keep looking for ways to get more out of life, produce more and do more; not because you have to, but because you want to and choose to.
Plan A As The Only Option.
There is no other way other than this. No plan B, no alternative. It’s not even this or nothing, it’s just this. That kind of a commitment will get you through all walks of life.
A Definite Knowing That You Will Succeed.
No matter what comes, even if life works against you as hard as it can, you will reach success. This is not a question, not a hope, but a definite, undeniable truth. You may not get there in the way you want to, you may have to go around a few bends and twists and turns, you might even have to sacrifice a few things along the way, but you will get there in the end.
Develop this mindset and there is nothing that will stop you.
If you believe in that what follows is the gathering of tools for your arsenal. From there you then familiarize yourself with all the tools at your disposal and start applying them to each and every problem that presents itself to your success.
Do not only sharpen your axe, but also spend time finding a chainsaw, hammer, katana, minigun, wrench, ladder and anything else you could use. That will make cutting down the tree much more efficient.
Pro-Tip: Get really invested in yourself first and use these tools for your own improvement first. This will use the arsenal to create an even stronger arsenal, at which point your overall tools exponentially increase in both quality and quantity.
Acquire as much knowledge as you can about everything you need to become a better person that is deserving of riches beyond your wildest dreams, but keep in mind that you must invest at least an hour a day into learning and improving yourself.

No matter how much you learn, if you do not apply it your life will not move forward.
This is incredibly important and you must do this as often as you can, especially at first when you barely know anything.
You are the only thing that lasts. No matter how broke you are, no matter how often you fell down, no matter what happens to you, you will still be there.
This means that all the knowledge you acquire, all the skills you gain and all the information you put into your head will be there too.
No amount of money, no thing and no relationship will last forever. But as long as you can think you will derive value from what you learn, because you will still be there.
Invest in this as much as you can each and every day. Read an hour a day and practice your skills. Invest money into books and seminars and spend more time on improving yourself than on anything else.
The Last Step Is To Act. Essentially: Do something today.
Produce more than anyone else and you will go further than anyone else. Produce at 10 times the rate that you are producing at now and you will get 10 times more results. Produce more than you consume and you will make a profit.
This is the simplest, yet least followed rule of success. Produce more than you consume.
It is so easy to understand yet hardly anyone does it. We consume entire seasons of TV shows in one sitting, will beat a game within 48 hours and spend more money on things than we will on improvements or investments.
This entire society is based around consumption. We are trained to always look for more ways to get a new fix of sugar, entertainment or to obtain the newest hot item, article of clothing, car, game, PC or technology gadget.
But when you start to produce more than you consume your entire life will change. For every hour of consumption you should spend 2 hours doing something that will further you in your journey towards your dreams.
Do you know how much time a week you spend on entertainment? Do you even know how many hours there are in a week?
The average person has 119 hours in a week (24 x 7 = 168 — (7×7) for sleep = 119). Out of these 119 hours we spend another 15 hours a week eating, leaving us with around 104 hours on average.
The average person has a 40 hour job leaving you with over 60 hours every week that you are spending on something, mostly entertainment. You could still spend over 3 hours a day on entertainment and get another 40 hour job and still have time to spare at the end of the week.
But instead of producing more, instead of working like the high-performers, you end up wasting almost 3 full days every week on entertaining yourself.
If you want to make money, live a better life, or become a better person you must produce more than you consume, it is that simple.
