Be different from the crowed.
You are who you are and what you are because of what has gone into your mind. What you have thought that was the right decision you have taken that action and that action has brought you here. Now if the results of your actions are positive then you dont need to change anything but if the results were not promising than you can change who you are and what you are by changing what goes into your mind.
How can we do that?
Every single day at specific time (preferably in the morning between 5-7 AM) for at least 10 minutes a day, read few pages of a motivational book of your choice, listen to motivational audio/video, read or listen something that will put you in the state of mind to think and to act in the way that it will improve your awareness skills. It will move you to take action to change your life. I would drive in my car and listen to my favorite motivational speakers of all times. As soon as i hear something that it applies to my life i record it or i take notes. The reason for this action is, so i can go back to it later on and apply to my every day life.
Take this action every day and you will see better opportunities will appear on your way.
