Success is not just having a lot of money.
Many people with a lot of money have unhappy and very imbalanced lives.
Success is continuously improving you and your life.
So why won’t most people be successful?
Why don’t most people evolve?
The more you evolve, the more focused you must be on those few things which matter most.
To be successful, you can not continue being with low frequency people for long periods of time.
You can’t continue eating unhealthy food, regardless of your spouse’s or colleague’s food choices.
Your days must consistency be spent on high quality activities.
The more successful you become , which is balancing the few very important things (spiritual, relational, financial, physical) in your life and removing everything else that is with low quality.
Before you develop, you can reasonably spend time with just about anyone.
You can eat just anything served in front of you.
You can justify activities and behaviors that are, honestly, mediocre.
As your vision for yourself expands, you realize you have to make some choices and adjustments. You need to cut-back on spending all of your money and time on things that are not important and on entertainment.
You have to save more, and invest more in your education and your future.
The more successful you become, the less you can justify low quality. Than the more focused you must become. The more consistently your daily behaviors must be high quality and increasingly higher quality.
No, this is not about perfection. It’s definitely not about being busy all the time. As a matter of fact, the balance of true success involves “mini-retirements” or regular sabbaticals.
Yet, if your daily behaviors are consistently low quality, what do you expect your life’s result to be?
Your choices must become higher quality.
Your relationships must become higher quality.
Every area of your life affects every other area of your life. Hence the saying, How you do something is how you do everything. This is very high level thinking. It only makes sense for people who have removed everything from their lives they hate.
To actually live this principle and high quality life: your daily and normal life can only be filled with those things you highly value.
When your days are filled with only those core important things that mean the world to you and you’re succeeding in those areas , you will absolutely dominate in “all” areas of your life.
Because the only things in your life should be the things you highly value. Everything else has slowly been moved aside.
You are living intentionally and congruently. You have momentum and balance. You’re being who you truly want to be, every single day.
To actually do this not only takes time, but is extremely hard to live in practice.
Saying NO to great but not so important opportunities is hard.
Giving up those bad habits is hard.
Changing your belief system and expanding your vision takes courage. It’s so easy to go back to small and mediocre thinking.
However, as you come closer to living on a daily basis with your core values and ideals, amazing things start to happen. You will feel happier and will be more present with those you love. Spend your time better and you will pursue bigger dreams and ambitions.
You will be more flexible during challenges. You will live at a higher frequency. And everything around you will reflect that good quality life of yours.
“A lot of people don’t do well simply because they major in minor things.” In other words, most people are caught in the thick of thin things.
Consequently , most people won’t be successful. Most people won’t improve and progress.
But you will. You know it, and you can feel it. You’ve already begun.
And everyday, you are one step closer. Ad you get better and better.
Soon enough, you will completely commit to being who you know you can truly be.
Once you pass that point of no return, nothing will stop you.
