Today I want to share a very simple, yet very critical time-management skill that usually is underestimated.
But not having this skill can seriously sabotage your best efforts to get things done and to move towards your goals in life.
The skill I’m talking about is to say no — primarily in your mind — to everything that is not what you really want.
Sometimes in life we feel weak, overwhelmed and out of control of what is happening around—and even more importantly—inside us. There are demands everywhere begging for our attention.
I personally develop the tendency to ignore things in order to keep at least a little control over what is my primary focus. But ignorance is always a poor master.
So I urge you not to give up on your highest expectations! Don’t lower your standards and accept a life that is not truly satisfying you. Don’t accept bad compromises. Don’t accept mediocrity.
I’m a strong believer that personal development is the best investment you could ever make.
The reason is really simple.
Improving yourself proactively, working on your awareness, improving your skills and knowledge about how you can get to the edge of your potential, all of that is an investment into the greatest asset you’ll always have: Yourself.
I know from my own experience that this is true.
And I know it from the fact that almost every financially successful person started out with a transformation to become the person who is then able to achieve that kind of success.
I noticed that I’m pretty close to living my dream right now. I have the woman and family of my dreams, I do what I love, I earn enough, I live where I want to live. And all in all I’m feeling pretty good.
It wasn’t always like this, especially not when I was a teenager. So I made quite some transformation in my life.
And I’m thankful for that. Because I know that there is only one constant in our universe. And that is change.
