Move your Life Forward or Backwards – Your Choice
This week we all got an extra hour to do something with – I got to spend an extra hour with my son on his Birthday weekend. Many will have just let it slip by. We all crave extra time, but often squander it when we actually get some. So which way are you choosing to move your life?
Each day we are given a choice on how we start to spend it. We could focus on the key goal for the day – or be busy being affected by the news around us. Instead of moving things in a positive way to help further ourselves and our businesses, we could get caught up in the more trivial things and end up further away from our goals and progress. Which direction do you want to take your life, forwards or backwards?
Start each day with the intention of making things better in your life. Don’t be distracted by what you haven’t managed before or thinking the task is too big. Just choose to take the first small positive step forwards.
I know only too well how life scuppers your plans, but also how to take that and realise the positive impact that those changes can bring. It is no good looking back and dwelling on what could, or should, have happened or the choice that should have been made. Look for what you can do positively now, and make your progress forwards.
If you want to start a book – then start to write
If your website it getting you down – then change it
If you keep missing out on some exercise – then find 15 mins to work out
If you want to learn a new skill – Google how and start today
Over the next 30 days you could move yourself 30 days forward in your progress. Or you could end up at the end of the 30 days not having got anywhere on that website / marketing campaign / new product / life – the choice is yours.
Which will you choose?
Book –The 10X Rule
To go well with the article above, consider reading The 10X Rule by Grant Cardone. The book looks the 10X rule, the level of action that guarantees companies and individuals realise their goals. If you are going to focus on something set the bar higher and the effort stronger rather than settling for a mediocre effort and falling short of even that.
“Success is not something that happens to you; it is something that happens because of you and because of the actions you take.”
