It’s human nature. Sometimes we win, sometimes we lose. Lately, it’s 90 percent our fault when we lose. We are either out of sync with reality, or straight lying to ourselves. Here’s the reality:
- There are only so many hours in a day, and so many days in a life. The way we live our hours and minutes are the way we live our lives.
- There is no safety net, but we are also anti-fragile. You and I can withstand so much more than we are lead to believe. A secret: If you’re reading this then you will die with money in the bank. You cannot mess this up, as long as you keep reaching in the right tone.
- Some people attract money. Other people attract the opposite sex. Still other people attract success and meaningful relationships. We attract what we deserve and what we want. If you want to be successful, then be the kind of person that is successful. Read daily, follow the plan, and show up when you’re supposed to show up.
- One in 1,000 people did their best at something yesterday. I mean 100 percent effort from start to finish. Try it. Sprint at something today and see how far you can get, how fast. Rest when you’re done. (Our society values speed and intensity at zero, when it’s actually a multiplier)
We all have tools that can help us win, but only some of us are willing to face the reality that’s keeping us from using them. We get what we want.
