The road to success: A Winner’s attitude

Hello, I’m glad to be here and share these important things to You.Thanks for those amazing comments on previous topics.

Last time I gave You an advise – think about what You love or at least what You are interested in. Whether You are already decided what You are passionate about or not – it’s not so important. You can decide tommorow – but as long as You won’t spend time thinking about what you love – nothing will happen (after reading  this topic I hope You will find the answer – why?), but You should start by finding out what You truly like and after that You can transfer Winner’s attitude to everyday’s life.
This is one of my favourite part – how to think like a Winner and also how to be that one. So let’s begin.

Actually there is only one rule that You must accept. If You want to be a Winner, then You need to make a promise. The promise to Never Ever Give Up. Make the promise to never quit what ever you’re into and what ever You choose to set out to finish the race. If You have found being a doctor as Your passion – great, do it. If You have found being a teacher as Your passion – well done! If Your dream is to collect 10 000 postages – go for it!

You will have a lot of challanges and failures You think are failures, but person who has Winner’s attitude would think differently. Failure in reality shouldn’t exist in Your mind – for the only time You truly fail is when You give up. With a Winner’s mind You don’t lose – You learn. As a result, You are now able to learn and grow constantly. Now I know – when I was at my lowest point – I was learning, not failing. Be open to ideas and suggestions from the right people to help get an advance in the game You are playing.

Why is it so important not to give up? Because You are the only one who is responsible for Your life. At my lowest point it was only up to myself. Sintija tried to motivate me, but the final decision was up to me. Your goals and dreams won’t  get up and come to You. You have to go and get them. One of my dreams is to find that mysterious girl Sintija and I am going for it now for about 6 years and I won’t quit this marathon. The second dream what I’m not going to abandon is about my own family once. But the real enemy that often holds us back is ourselves. It’s not the economy, neighbours or even friends. You should get out of Your own way to become successful. Right? There are many people who think one thing or another is impossible. Make that one like IM possible. People think they fail every day and they fail because they don’t think as a Winner. If they would think – they would say: „I’m learning constantly.”

I could discuss a lot more, but at the end of the topic I would like to say – Your success will come from the actions You actually take. Life doesn’t reward those with potential or those who feel they deserve it. Life rewards those who understand the simplest of truths – taking action. Roger Federer – amazing tennis player, isn’t brilliant just because he has potential, he is brilliant by taking action – in this case – playing tennis. You will have whatever You desire in life when Your reasons of taking actions become stronger than Your excuses.

Here is a big lesson for You: The world we live in is a world that is constantly evolving. If You are not evolving Your mind in a winning way, being open to change, accepting it and adapting to it, then You will be left behind. (Kevin Abdulrahman) I agree. How about You?

Have an amazing Winning month,

The road to success: Introduction

Dear reader,

Now You know a bit about myself, my experience and those difficulties I have made my way through. I strongly believe that I have a second chance to live and do it differently compared with the way I was living before.  As a result, I would like to improve Your, Your friends and everyone’s life by sharing series of articles by the title „the road to success”.
„The road to success” articles will include several topics, suggested by You, dear reader, or just based on my experience and vision how it should go to make You act like a Winner and what’s more important – be the one from that kind of it.

Do You know what success is? Is there one correct definition for it? Is there only one way success can be measured? I would say – no. I would like to say – success is when You are feeling happy, isn’t it? And that’s good for You! I think – life is a game. The more You know the rules, the more You can act like a Winner. These rules are quite simple, but they ask for You to pay enough attention. There are some simple rules and more advanced. Firstly, let’s have a look at those simpler rules.

It’s Your decision to become successful or not. It is only up to You. But if You ever decide or have decided already on being successful, then I’m glad You are here. None will help You to reach Your aims if You would not be willing to achieve them.
That’s why clarity is important. Get clarity about what it is You want based on what feels right for Your heart. It’s not worth doing in Your life what You actually don’t like, because the price You pay for wasted time is Your life – knowing that You could do something You like more, it could burn as a hell. Then try to find those who have done what You seek – try to find a role model, mentor. When I was at my lowest point, I found Sintija as my role model, hoping that someday I will be as pleasant as she is.

Because success means different things to different folks, at the end what matters is how You feel about Your results and current situation You are in. When You will follow Your heart and try Your best, then it is possible to be successful and the most important – happy.

Let’s stop here for a while. As I like to say – one step at a time. Before we continue here is a chance for You to think about what You like to do, what are Your interests and whether You are doing job You love or not? If You find any improvements – write them, if You find Yourself doing job You actually don’t love – start by thinking what You love and what would You like to achieve. That’s crucial.

Yours truly,
Uldis

Anorexia – how it changed my life

Hi!

It’s not so long time ago when I posted my first blog post here, but the aim of this blog is to show you what I went through and how I live now. As you probably noticed from the headline – the story will be about anorexia.

I guess everyone is heard at least once what is anorexia about. If no, then I will explain. Typical explanation would be: anorexia is an eating disorder characterized by a low weight, fear of gaining weight, a strong desire to be thin, and food restriction. Anyway, I had nothing about fear of gaining weight or strong desire of being thin. Nothing like that. It would be awesome if I could get some weight, but it didn’t happen. Actually it was fear of vomiting. That would be the best explanation in this case. In the very beginning I was just afraid, but later – it was not possible for me to eat anything. I did not want to eat not even of fears but there was not physiologic willingness. Maybe that’s why I was the first person in doctors life with these symptoms.. just because I had not common features. That’s why I felt so alone in whole world. I started to lose weight and at my lowest point I weighted only 30 kg which was amazingly low weight and at any time I could die. (more…)
