Stop chasing everything that you think will bring you happiness. It’s not out there; it comes from within.
When you choose a road, you say no to all of the other possibilities as they exist at that moment.
If you choose to work longer, you choose to spend less time with your family. If you choose to sit in front of the television or computer screen, you choose not to exercise.
What is that thing you MOST want at this moment? Are you willing to pay the cost of going for it? Are you willing to forego other things? Are you willing to “miss out” on things in order to follow your path?
Get the Nerve!
(From: 13 Things Mentally Strong People Don’t Do, by Amy Morin)
You might ask, “At what?” It doesn’t matter. Your relationships, your career, your weight, your communication, your life.
You can tell a lot by your results. If you’re not getting the results you want, it may be time to change what you’re doing.
It may be time to stop complaining, criticizing, gossiping, and blaming others for your life.
Are you getting the results you want in order to have the life you want? Yes or no?
If the answer is no, it’s time to do something else.
In order to have something you’ve never had, you have to do something you’ve never done.
Get the Nerve!
Prime time is when you feel most refreshed, focused, and productive.
It’s the time when you tackle the most important projects, the most difficult projects, and the projects that will give you the most return on your time investment.
It’s not the time to file papers, get coffee, or catch up with your colleagues on last night’s episode of American Idol or what you ate for dinner.
One of the keys to success is identifying your prime time – whether at work or home – and protecting it as much as you can.
