How to be successful? Watch what successful people do and do the same things.

So what do successful people do? Let’s look at Novak Djokovic during the Australian Open in 2022 and let’s try to learn from it.

1. Successful people are on the mission and nothing can stop them

Regardless of the circumstances in the world, his personal circumstances or the situation in Australia, Novak Djokovic’s plan was to attend the tournament in Australia and win it. He’s applied for the exemption and went above and beyond to show up and compete to win his next title.

What can we learn from it?
Successful people don’t hesitate. They follow their plan and try to succeed no matter what.

2. Successful people break the rules (or at least bent) sometimes

If you follow the story you know that Novak did not exactly follow the rules in the weeks prior to arriving in Australia and his visa application also contained some errors (intentional or not). Don’t break the law but there are rules sometimes made by people that we feel obliged to follow. Guess what, this is not what successful people do, they do what feels right for them.

What can we learn from it?
Successful people don’t often follow rules made by others and do what makes sense and feels right for them and not for other people.

3. Successful people fight

Once his visa was cancelled after arriving in Australia he could’ve said “I’m done with it and I’m out of here” when he faced some problems after arriving in Australia. But he fought through it and won.

What can we learn from it?
Successful people don’t give up easily when they face adversity.

4. Successful people don’t care what others think
