You’re not entitled to a result you have not earned…

Working for different companies over my lifetime I’ve heard so many comments along the lines of…

‘its alight for them raking it in, I bet they sat sipping wine now whilst we’re working’ – Aboud MDs and Company Owners…

Yet when I observe the habits of the complainers, They are playing games on their phones, watching films or tv shows on their break and yes I’ve even noticed a few Cat videos on Youtube (I didn’t even know people still did that)

And they still expect a pay raise?

If you want to become better paid, or sip wine whilst people do your dirty work… You have to work for it,

Make your self become indispensable and not just another cog in the machine (recommended read – Seth Godin, Linchpin)

But don’t think you’re entitled to something when you do the bare minimum, If that… You have to do the work and much more depending on your goals.

Don’t Be Inspired, Be Inspirational

Don’t Be Inspired, Be Inspirational – Ryan Holiday

Don’t just read motivational quotes, or watch an inspiring documentary, Look up to what we call the greats…

And think how great they were…

Do something today, take action and join the ranks of those we once looked up too,

Be Inspirational.

We must seize what flees

We must seize what flees – Seneca

The first part of this letter Seneca was saying that we must set aside our distractions and putting all our efforts into our single purpose, before too much time passes and its too late…

Time is like currency, you get 24 hours a day, how you spend it is up to you…

But unlike currency, once we’ve spent it… It’s gone.

You can’t loan time from the bank, You can’t make time back as you could with money…

You have 24 hours today – Seize it, by losing your distractions and focus on the task in front of you…

Before it flees,

‘We must live each day as if it’s our last’ – Marcus Aurelius

Resistance often stops us from getting started, Out of fear…

Fear of what?

Doing wrong, Being laughed at or what other people think of us… Failure

But what happens when we go wrong when we do nothing…

When we let resistance win and we didn’t start the side hustle… when we didn’t commit to the diet or quit smoking…

Now you’re being layed off, The doctors told you the bad news…

Now not only do you have to start turning around your life from a standing start position, But You’re also starting on a hill, a steep hill that could have been prevented…

Prevented if you started yesterday, Even if you made some mistakes you would still have had some momentum behind you to change direction…

Fail today while you still have failure as an option

Make them feel the Heat

If you can’t help them see the light, Make them feel the Heat

There’s always someone you want to help, but you can’t seem to get through to them,

Or they act like they’re listening but you end up having the same conversation every other week and you are clearly having no luck which is frustrating and draining…

We never seem to be able to get them to see the light…

Stop trying.

The more you try to help them over and over the more they are dimming yours, They drain your energy and you have nothing left for yourself…

Start focusing on your light, your own passion and purpose, If the heat of your own success does not snap them out of their patterns…

Nothing will.

But that’s not your problem.

You’re, Your problem

Turn up the heat
