5 Shocking Ways Your Lifestyle Can Determine Your Success
1. The way you daydream sets up your
Your future is an uncharted territory. If you’re
going to be successful, you’re going to need to
draw a map. Successful people have a clear
vision of exactly what they want success to look
like, taste like, feel like, including what kind of
business they want to run, how often they want
to work, who they want to associate with, where
they vacation, how often exercise, and how
much self-esteem they have. Start imagining the
life you want to live, and you’ll have a step-by-
step guide for how to get there.
2. You eat, sleep, and breathe your way
Success doesn’t happen in a vacuum. If you’re
not sleeping enough and living off Cheetos,
you’re probably not going to have the energy to
go after your dreams. Successful people
incorporate success into every aspect of their
lives, including nutrition, exercise, sleep,
relationships, and self-care. If you start treating
yourself like a successful person now, you’re
setting yourself up for long-term success.
3. The boundaries you set are the
blueprint for your life.
Boundaries are simply the way you teach people
how to treat you. From the way you accept to be
treated, to the amount you are paid, to the
hours you’re willing to work, boundaries are
the rules you define for your life. If you let
people walk all over you today, that’s probably
not going to change, no matter how “successful”
4. You think of yourself as successful
as you’re going to be.
The world will generally take you as seriously as
you take yourself. Nobody batted an eye at Mark
Zuckerberg or Steve Jobs when they first start
their companies. But, if take yourself seriously
and consistently put in the actions necessary to
keep moving forward, eventually you’ll become
as successful as you decide to be.
5. At the end of the day, it’s about how
much enjoyment you can stand.
Success isn’t really about how much you can
achieve; it’s more about how much you can
enjoy. If you allow yourself to cherish moments
of success without constantly thinking, “What’s
the next thing?” then you’re already more than
halfway there. Success follows happiness. So, if
you can hold on to the joy of all that you’ve
accomplished, you’ll attract a lot more success
into your life than the guy or gal who’s burnt
out, striving to keep doing more.
Success is just as much an internal mindset as it
is an external experience. When you get the
internal stuff together and start treating yourself
like a successful person, you welcome other
people to treat you successfully as well.
When we get down to it, success isn’t just the
number of people who know your name or the
the amount in your bank account; success is
consciously designing a life that meets your
goals and vision. It’s about building the exact
lifestyle you’ve always dreamed of, regardless
of money or fame.
And, once you get there, the rest is just icing on
the cake. Because success always follows

UN sets agenda for Buhari
The United Nations (UN) on Tuesday set a development
agenda for President Muhammadu Buhari, with the
management and development of human resources as a
The Special Adviser to the UN Secretary-General on
MDGs, Hajiya Amina Al-Zubair, gave the advice during an
interactive session with newsmen in Abuja.
Al-Zubair explained that the development of human
resources, most especially women and girls, was key to
driving national development goals.
She also recommended the strengthening of “inclusive
governance’’ and better a clarity of the funding and
expenditure of the three tiers as adopted by the president
to provide good governance.
Besides, Al-Zubair advised Buhari to provide basic
functional social amenities and infrastructure to enhance
the lives of citizens.
The aide also urged the president to curb corruption by
blocking all the “leaking pipes’’ and improve security.
According to her, Nigeria has crisis in the education
sector in spite of the huge investments made by the
government and development partners over years.
While attributing the challenge to lack of genuine
commitment, facilities and infrastructure, she called for a
new approach to achieve desirable results.
The UN, Al-Zubair said, would adopt the Sustainable
Development Goals (SDGs) on Sept. 21, as a new
approach to tackling global development issues.
She listed 17 goals that would drive the SDGs, including
poverty eradication, climate change issues and their
impact, human resource development, provision of
quality infrastructure and social amenities.
Others are provision of sustainable management of water
and sanitation for all, inclusive education, achieve gender
equality and empower all and women girls as well as
ensuring healthy lives for all at all ages.
Similarly, Al-Zubair disclosed that the SDGs would also
seek to promote save and habitable environments,
provision of “affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern
energy for all’’.
The SDGs, she added, would also seek to end hunger,
achieve food security and improved nutrition through
agriculture and reduce inequality within and among
The aide said other goals would promote peaceful and
inclusive societies, access to justice, combat
desertification and halt biodiversity.
“Furthermore, the SDGs will strengthen the means of
implementation and revitalise the lobal partnership for
sustainable development,’’ said Al-Zubair.

Champions League: Club Brugge v Man Utd preview
Manchester United head into their Champions
League play-off second leg against Club Brugge
aiming for a spot in the group stage of Europe’s
elite competition after missing out last season.
Lous Van Gaal’s side will take a 3-1 lead to the
atmospheric Jan Breydel Stadion on
Wednesday after Memphis Depay’s brace and
Marouane Fellaini’s last-ditch third at Old Trafford
last week but the Belgians have a crucial away
A 2-0 win for Brugge would be enough to take
them through at United’s expense on the away
goals rule, but United – three-time winners of the
competition – will be in confident mood of making
progress having made an unbeaten start to their
Premier League campaign.
Marouane Fellaini: Scored a last-ditch goal to help
United earn a 3-1 win over Club Brugge
They were held to a frustrating goalless draw at
home by Newcastle on Saturday, though, and
eyes are sure to be on goal-shy striker Wayne
The England striker has failed to find the back of
the net for United since a 3-1 win against Aston
Villa in April – a barren run that spans 10 games
and 858 minutes and his worst since 2007.
Man utd didn’t feature in the competition last
season, but had previously reached the group
stages for 18 years in succession and will not
want to miss out this time around.
Louis van Gaal: The head coach will hope captain
Wayne Rooney finally ends his goal drought
Van Gaal is expecting an uncomfortable night in
Belgium and told the official Man utd website: “It
is a difficult ground, and it is not a simple
opponent. I have read in the papers in England
that it is simple and it is a walkover, but it isn’t
“Brugge against Panathinaikos, they won 3-0 [in
the previous round]. It is still a game, but because
of our third goal we now have more confidence.”

brace in the first leg at Old Trafford
Brugge, meanwhile, haven’t made the group
stages since the 2005/06 season when they
finished third in Group A behind Juventus and
Michel Preud’homme’s side head into the tie on
the back of a disappointing 2-0 defeat to Zulte-
Waregem on Saturday, a result that leaves them
sixth in the Belgian Pro League with only seven
points from five matches, but they are currently
riding a 10-game unbeaten streak in Europe.
Michel Preud’homme’s side are unbeaten in 10
European home games
The former Belgium international goalkeeper
believes his side will need divine intervention to
prevent United from claiming a spot in the
“Miracles happen sometimes, but they are two
goals in front and they are a very professional
team,” Preud’homme said.
“To get a miracle, you need to be perfect and you
need the other to not play at his best potential. We
have a lot of players out, too.
“If we want to have a chance, we have to be
perfect. It will be very difficult, but let’s pray.”
