The Only Right Way

The Only Right Way, Is the Way That Helps You Make The Change You Seek – Seth Godin.

It’s overwhelming…

Entering a new game, Trying something new, Making a change

We try and take shortcuts and fast lanes, We google and youtube the best way to this, the fastest way to get ‘…’ how to hack the new algorithm…

These searches and shortcuts normally from experience leave us more overwhelmed, confused and a couple of hours with nothing done but browsing…

The right way is doing, doing what actually reaches your audience, gets you the result you want and over time you see the change you are seeking,

There is no search for that,

It’s trial and error.

Do the work, not the browsing

It’s not ‘meant to be’ – Its meant to be done

It’s not meant to be – Its meant to be done – Jade Teta.

If it’s meant to be its meant to be – (I hate writing this post because my Nan always said that saying)

But,

If you’re sat around waiting for the stars to align waiting for something to happen then you need to get up, stop star gazing and go and do the work.

The work, The work is meant to be done.

Once the work is done then the work needs to be put out there…

And once that has happened then it might be.

You might fail, But if you did the work then you will have learnt some valuable lessons, you can course correct and try again…

That is how we learn and grow, and that’s how we make our stars align…

Not by waiting, By doing.

The Little Things Add Up

The Little Things Add Up – Ryan Holiday

When we go about change, we normally make these big dramatic changes, They never normally last, Then we’re back to where we started…

But it’s the little things that can make a huge difference over time…

They don’t seem like much, getting up an hour earlier, reading or writing one page a day, walking for 30 minutes every day…

What are you looking to do or change, What small thing can you do daily that will make a huge difference over time?

Obviously the same is true in reverse the small negatives add up too.

One of the greatest regrets in life

One of the greatest regrets in life is being what others would want you to be, rather than being yourself.”
― Shannon L. Alder

Don’t throw yourself away.

Theres a saying that goes around in the personal development world…

‘Do what you love’

But sometimes doing what you love doesn’t bring you an income, or when you start making money for doing what you love then you eventually resent what you love, (Theres a few examples in the book unscripted)

So we have to find somthing that we can live off and you know survive…

But that does not mean we have to throw ourselves in the trash so we can live…

We can still do what we love and enjoy what we love, Whilst loving the job that we do.

If you want to get together with your friends and become a rock and on the weekend then do that, If you love painting and drawing then do that in your free time…

Just because you can’t make money from the things we love, does not mean we should throw that part of ourselves away…

It’s waiting that helps you as an investor

It’s waiting that helps you as an investor, and a lot of people just can’t stand to wait. Charlie Munger

When you invest (and by invest I mean anything that can have a Return on Investment on your life (not just money investments))

You need to be prepared to wait for those results…

You want a better body and better health, You investment plan needs to be longer than 7 days

That is true for anything that will significantly improve your life…

Be prepared to wait, Leave the quick fixes and fast results to those who aren’t willing to.
