Stop Saying Things that Make You Weak! 
Make yourself strong by quitting any tiny habit which you are sure that is not good for you 100%. This tiny effort will provide you a spiral up lift in your life and will strengthen your will power.
- Stop doing the things that you know are wrong. Make a schedule, and stick to it. Sometimes, you know I can't sleep at night because I'm thinking about something. And usually what I'll do, go write it down. It's important to distinguish between those, because that's partly, and this is back down to the micro-routine analysis so it's like saying, well you're going to try and make yourself more industrious (active).
Okay, number one, specify your goals, 'cuz how are you going to hit something if you don't know what it is.
My one word is believe, and I believe that entrepreneurs will solve all of the world's major problems. 
So to help you on your journey today we're going to learn from clinical psychologist and Professor Jordan B. Peterson, and my take on his top ten rules for success. 
Rule number four is my personal favorite, and I'd love to know which one you guys like the best. 
And as always, as you're watching, if you hear something that really resonates (echoes) with you, please leave it in the comments below. 
Put quotes around it so other people can be inspired. You might win a prize as well. And also, when you write it down, it's much more likely to stick for yourself as well. Enjoy. 
- Stop doing the things that you know are wrong, that you could stop doing. Right, so it's a fairly limited attempt. First of all, we're not going to say that you know what the good is or what the truth is, in any ultimate sense. 
But we will presume that there are things that you're doing, that for one reason or the other, you know are not in your best interest. There's something about them, that you just know you should stop. They're kind of self-evident to you. Other things you're going to be doubtful about. You're not going to know which way is up and which way is down. But there are things that you're doing that you know you shouldn't do. Now some of those you won't stop doing. For whatever reason, you don't have the discipline or maybe there's a secondary payoff. Or you don't believe it's necessary. Or it's too much of a sacrifice. Or your angry or resentful or afraid. Who knows? So forget about those for now. 
There's another subset that you could stop doing. It might be a little thing. Well that's fine, stop doing it. See what happens. And what'll happen is, your vision'll clear a little bit. And then something else will pop up in your field of apprehension that you will also know you should stop doing, and that you could stop doing.
'Cuz you've strengthened yourself a bit by stopping doing the particular stupid thing that you were doing before. It just puts you together a little bit more. And you could do that, repeatedly, for an indefinite period of time.
That doesn't necessarily mean that you're going to ever be able to formulate a clear and final picture of what constitutes the truth and the good. But it does mean that you will be able to continually move away from what's untruth and what's bad. Y'know, that's not a bad start.
Make a schedule, and stick to it.
Okay, so what's the rule with the schedule? 
It's not a prison. That's the first thing that people do wrong. They say, well I don't like to follow a schedule. Well it’s like, what kind of schedule are you setting up? Well, I have to do this, then I have to do this, then I have to do this. And then I just go play video games because who wants to do all these things that I have to do? It's like wrong. 
Set the schedule up so you have the day you want. That's the trick. It's like, okay, I've got tomorrow. If I was going to set it up so it was the best possible day I could have. 
Practically speaking. What would it look like? Well then you schedule that. And obviously, there's a bit of responsibility that's going to go along with that. Because if you have any sense, one of the things that you're going to insist upon is that at the end of the day you're not in worse shape than you were at the beginning of the day. 'Cuz that's a unplanned day. If you have a bunch of those in a row, you just dig yourself a hole and then you bury yourself in it. 
Sorry, that's just not a good strategy. It's a bad strategy. So, maybe 20 percent of your day has to be responsibility and obligation. Or maybe it's more than that, depending on how far behind you are. But even, then you can ask yourself, okay, well I've got these responsibilities, I have to schedule the things in, what's the right ratio of responsibility to reward? And you can ask yourself that, just like you'd negotiate with someone who was working for you. 
It's like okay you've got to work tomorrow. Okay, so I want you to work tomorrow. And you might say, okay, well what are you going to do for me that makes it likely that I will work for you? Well, you could ask yourself that, y'know. 
So maybe you do an hour of responsibility and then you play a video game for 15 minutes.
I don't know, whatever turns your crank, man. But you have to negotiate with yourself, and not tyrannize yourself.
Like you're negotiating with someone that you care for, that you would like to be productive and have a good life. 
That's how you make the schedule. And then you look at the day and you think, well if I had that day that would be good. 
Great! Y'know, and you're useless and horrible, so you'll probably only hit it with about 70 percent accuracy but that beats the hell out of zero. And if you hit it even with 50 percent accuracy, another rule is, well aim for 51 percent the next week. Or 50 and a half percent, for god's sake. Because, you're going to hit that position where things start to loop back positively and spiral you upward.

Tu Raaz-E-Kun Fakan Hai, Apni Ankhon Par Ayan Ho Ja
Khudi Ka Raazdan Ho Ja, Khuda Ka Tarjuman Ho Ja
You are the secret of creation, see yourself in your eyes;
Share the secret of your own self, become the spokesman of God.
