There are 4 things you really need to STOP if you really want to live your best life:
1.Stop trying to live a balanced life.
There is no such thing as a balanced life and what’s the point of that? Are you trying to arrive safely at death?
If you believe you are here for a really GREAT purpose, then stop trying to live a balanced life – that will be the nemesis of your vision and goal.
To accomplish great things will require your life to be FULL and 100% out of balance.
It may be 60/40 or 95/5, either way, seeking balance is a fool-proof way of failing if you are really trying to accomplish anything great.
Reminder that good is the opposite of great.
And I’m talking about being GREAT!
2. Stop thinking there is no room for your dream or that it’s already been done before.
Because guess what – it’s ALL been done before – BUT not by Y-O-U.
You have that special ingredient that no one has – but you have to believe it.
A fabulous quote by Mark Twain – if you don’t believe me then believe him:
“There is no such thing as a new idea. It is impossible. We simply take a lot of old ideas and put them into a sort of mental kaleidoscope. We give them a turn and they make new and curious combinations. We keep on turning and making new combinations indefinitely; but they are the same old pieces of colored glass that have been in use through all the ages.”
3. Stop – PLEASE stop – listening to other people.
I don’t mean stop listening to other people but I do mean stop internalizing every damn thing that everyone tells you about you or how you should or shouldn’t live your life.
Choose one or two mentors – not 7 billion. You have to stop listening to the rest of the crowd.
You have to really get good at the skill of tuning people’s opinions out.
Opinions run rampant and most people let them stop them from following their dreams.
Most people disguise these comments to you as being helpful to you, or they are trying to be “realistic” with you or they are just trying to make sure you don’t get hurt or fail.
Be TOTALLY UNREALISTIC!
Anyone that does NOT support your dreams is probably not a person you should listen to seriously anyways. (Yup, tough love….)
4. Stop that negative self-talk.
Do whatever it takes to stop saying you can’t.
Do whatever it takes to start saying YES to yourself.
So, next question:
How does this affect your money?
- Go 110% after your money goals.
- Figure out what the real cost of not going for your BIG money dreams is?
- A million people pulling your brain in a million different directions only leads to procrastination with your finances, and not to mention lack of confidence with the money past decisions you made.
- Talk positively about all your financial dealings, ’cause your words create your life.
Don’t forget to….
Live Your Legacy!
