Heard Recently on The Daily Boost
On a recent episode, Lori Greiner made a quick comment that caught my attention.
She said, “There are no express elevators to success. Everybody has to take up the stairs.”
That’s some old-school, been there done that advice. Something you don’t hear too often these days – except folks who have already walked your path.
If you want quick success, take the stairs. You’ll arrive long before those who are still waiting for the elevator.
Balance is dynamic, fleeting, ever-changing, and always challenging. Sure, it feels good when you reach equilibrium, but what about all that fun you had on your way there
I learned about balance when I worked in radio.
My job was to balance the new music everyone wanted to hear old music folks love to remember. We balanced male, female, bands, duo’s, and anything else musicians would toss at us.
That sure sounds like life.
Imagine a life of rotating the new and exciting with the mundane and routine. Time for yourself and time for your family. A bit for the boss, and time to play.
Never too much. Never too little. You are always changing.
That’s balance. Embrace the journey of the day.
Are you the kind of person who requires that your ducks be in a row before you getting something new?
The standard advice is never stopping one thing until you have another. Don’t quit your job. Don’t buy a new house. Don’t change your school major. Don’t, don’t, don’t.
Is that making you happy?
Are you unsatisfied with what you have?
Is your complaining speaking louder than your actions?
Maybe it’s time to dump what’s not working and go for what you want? Life is much too short to wait.
Have you noticed that there is never enough time in the day to soak up everything that life has to offer?
It’s time to replace yourself. No matter what you do in life, getting some help might be your best choice.
From the most mundane to the exciting, there are lots of people who would love to help you enjoy your life. Why? Because doing so helps them enjoy their life.
The rule is simple –
Do what you love; do what you do well.
Just because you have done something for your entire life does not mean that you must keep doing it.
Delegate, automate, outsource, hire or manage. There is always a way to free up more time.
Are you getting caught up in the buzz of life while running crazy toward your goals?
Friends, family, co-workers, society – all would make you believe that you need to run faster to get what you want.
That’s not true.
Moving at 1,000 miles per hour is fun – especially when it is fueled by your passion. However, it’s only okay when you focus on your dream life.
Take a moment and evaluate your progress today. Are you buzzing for the sake of buzzing? Or, are you busy creating your dream life?
Have you ever felt something was holding you back? Maybe you’re spending too much time learning.
What is going on?
Your mind can’t tell the difference between perception and reality. It’s confusing learning and doing. That’s why it’s so easy to get caught up stuffing your brain with new information – not working toward your goal.
Keep this in mind:
1) Learning is fun and required to make a better life.
2) Learning alone will not create results.
3) At some point, you must apply what you learn.
Don’t get stuck in the learning trap. Consistently apply what you know. I promise, you will start moving FAST!
Steve Harvey is a funny guy. He’s also a wise man.
Have you seen his teaching on the one thing you must do if you want to be successful?
He says, “You must jump.
If you want to be successful, you must jump into your dreams, take a leap of faith, and go for it.”
Many times we stand on the cliff of life and watch others enjoying the life you desire.
They jumped, their parachute opened, and life is good.
You must jump.
When you finally decide to jump, your parachute will not open right away. You will get bumped and bruised, but, your parachute will open.
You must jump.
If you don’t jump, your parachute will never open.
Is today the day you jump?
I have a friend who is always asking a simple question, “What happens next?”
Most folks pause when they hear his question. Most never arrive at his expected answer – “EVERYTHING!”
It’s easy to get caught up in your past with everything demanding your attention at this moment. Still, think about the straightforward nature of his question. No matter where you are in your life today, EVERYTHING will follow.
Good, bad, happy, sad, exciting and boring.
The entirety of your life sits before you. It is waiting for you to grab it by the horns – and give it more than an eight-second rodeo ride.
Open your eyes to possibility. Accept that it can be yours.
Today, why not choose what happens next?
The most appealing aspect of anything new in your life always happens at the beginning. When it’s still a dream inside your head. It’s only when it’s time to take actual action that folks slow down – fast!
Here’s how to break free:
1) Dreams only come true when you take massive action and establish momentum.
2) Fear of the unknown will stop you. What do I do? Where do I start? Will it work? No worries. One word will change everything.
3) The next time you don’t know what to do, embrace your inner NON-perfectionist. Take “Massive Imperfect Action” until things start to move forward.
Sometimes your feet must travel down the path of your dreams before see the entire picture. Stand up, take a step, and repeat. You’ll figure it out!
Why do folks get so stressed out about reinventing themselves?
It’s so simple when you understand –
Getting something different in life always requires taking a different action. Those actions are “change” that you are applying to your life. All change happens in an instant. A simple course correction alters your life journey.
Yes, it’s that easy.
There’s no need to sit around waiting for your future. Take a different action and be on a new path. Stand up. Take a step. REPEAT! You know you want it! Get it!
