Focus on One Step at a Time | Note 043
What will bring you closer to the one thing you really want?
People can actually do two or more things at once, such as walk and talk, or chew gum and read a map; but, like computers, what we can’t do is focus on two things at once. Our attention bounces back and forth. This is fine for computers, but it has serious repercussions in humans. – Gary Keller, The One Thing
You can do anything you want.
You can have everything you want.
Now is the time to focus.
Focus on what you want to have. And narrow that focus to the one thing that you are emotionally invested in. Now focus and take action on the one thing that will bring you closer to the one thing you really want.
Focus on one step at a time.
Have You Decided To Fail? | Note 063
Ask yourself, “what should I do” and then do it.
“Indecision is actually the individual’s decision to fail. Many people are indecisive all their lives. From the cradle to the grave, they annoy relatives, friends, and business associates with the constant questions. “Tell me what I should do.” Their subconscious indecision pattern is strong and clear. They seem powerless to break it. They can, but they do not know that they can.”
The quote above is from the book “The Power of Decision” by Raymond Charles Barker.
Being a chronic advice seeker is the equivalent of deciding to fail. Always seeking advice is an obvious sign that you cannot make your own decisions or worst, you don’t trust yourself. There is nothing wrong with asking an expert for advice, and failing at something is part of life.
The problem occurs when you can’t make quick, concise decisions or you rely on someone else to make decisions for you. The problem with failing is when you continue to fail and never learn the lesson.
You are an adult. It’s time to break your pattern of indecision. Make quick, concise decisions.
Ask yourself, “what should I do” and then do it.
The next time you are indecisive, or you have the urge to ask a relative, friend, or a business associate who isn’t an expert to tell you what to do, ask yourself, why have you decided to fail?
Pay Attention To What You Pay Attention To | Note 093
Your life can be summed up by what you spend the most time doing.
“Your attention is one of the most valuable things you possess, which is why everyone wants to steal it from you. First, you must protect it, and then you must point it in the right direction.”
The quote above is from the book “Keep Going: 10 Ways To Stay Creative in Good Times and Bad” by Austin Kleon.
Your life can be summed up by what you spend the most time doing. By now, you know where attention goes energy flows.
If you’re struggling each day to complete the tasks on your do-to list or you’re having a hard time reaching your goals, it’s time that you ask yourself one simple question.
How am I spending my time?
Your life consists of the things you make time for and what you give all your attention to.
If you spend all day worrying about other people’s business, consuming TV, checking all the gossip blogs, and aren’t focused on achieving your goals, expect little in return.
If you’re serious about being a better person and accomplishing your goals, it’s time to pay attention to what you pay attention to.
You Must Do Something New | Note 103
When you treat yourself like you matter, anything is possible.
“To make a quantum leap, you’ve got to break out of the rut where you’ve been running. Second-guess your routine. Overcome the addiction to your old methodologies. Set a new pattern.”
The quote above is from the book “You Squared: A High-Velocity Formula for Multiplying Your Personal Effectiveness in Quantum Leaps.”
Conventional approaches teach you if the old way of doing things isn’t broke, then there is nothing to fix.
But what happens if you’re stuck?
What happens if you’re no longer growing?
What happens if you want to be, do, and have much more?
Better yet, what if you ignored conventional approaches?
Sometimes you have to abruptly shake up your same old habits and routines. If you want to be, do, and have much more, you can’t revert to what usually works. You must do something new!
Do You Have the Showman DNA? | Note 143
Are you ordinary or extraordinary?
“There are people who belong in front of a camera, there are people who belong in print, and there are people who belong on the air. These are extraordinary people. The ordinary ones, the ones like the vast majority of businesspeople and entrepreneurs out there, don’t have the showman DNA.”
The quote above is from the book “Crush It” by Gary Vaynerchuk.
Everyone can be successful, but not everyone will be a showman. Sure, you can make money doing the same thing that Oprah does, but you will never make that Oprah kind of money because you either lack the passion, aren’t the best to ever do it, or both. It’s okay.
Some people’s destiny is to be in front of the camera and others behind it. It’s okay.
Not everyone will be a showman — not everyone can be extraordinary at everything. It’s okay. Most people are ordinary, and it’s okay.
As long as you are honest and realistic about who you are, what you’re capable of doing, and how hard you’re willing to work to achieve your goals, you can be successful as an ordinary person. Understand, though, you only achieve the success that Oprah has when you’re extraordinary — when you’re a showman.
Do you have the showman DNA?
