” Our fatigue is often caused not by work, but by worry, frustration, and resentment.” — Dale Carnegie
I can’t take another day! — I need a vacation! — Enough is Enough — I Quit!
You have heard someone say it, you have said them yourself. You work your fingers to the bone, for what? It never ends. You work for the weekend, the weekend is over, and you dread the week. Sound Familiar?
Help is on the way! The solution is simple. It is not a matter of changing what you are doing, it is changing the way you think. It does not matter what you are doing, how much you make, or how you do what you do each day. How you think changes everything.
Discipline is doing what you should do, when you should do it whether you feel like it or not.
There are 4 keys that will open doors to the best part of your life.
- What you think is what you believe. You can’t control what thoughts enter your mind, you can control what thoughts you allow to stay. You would not allow an unwelcome visitor enter your home and disrespect the peace of your home and stay. Why would you allow an unwelcome thought to take residence in your mind? Taking your thoughts captive is essential. Choosing not to think about something is simple, but not easy. Discipline your attention on the thoughts you know will move you in the direction of your goals. Discipline is doing what you should do, when you should do it whether you feel like it or not.
- What you believe determines your activity. What you believe will shape your activity. Your activity is the reflection to the world around you of what you believe. You may be able to fool those around you for a season, but in time your true intentions will be revealed. Passion is the picture people observe when your actions line up with what you believe.
- Your actions determine your outcome. Your outcome is a result of your actions. You can’t control circumstances, you can control your response to circumstances. Despite what others decide to accept, you choose to accept your outcome. If you are unsatisfied with your outcome, change your thinking. Warren Buffet was once asked how the recession affected his business. He responded “It didn’t!”. When asked how that was possible, his answer ” I chose not to participate.” Although negative things may happen to you, you choose to settle with a victim mentality, or strive to be a victor.
- You choose to be busy or productive. You have 86,400 seconds per day. The same amount as every person on the earth. The difference is not the amount of time we have, but how you think about it which makes you different. Thinking about what activity has the greatest consequence is what separates you from a person who believes they don’t have enough time. Understanding what activity moves you toward your goal represents a person who is productive and not busy. Productivity is a result of pursuing what is important. Busyness is the result of aimless activity. Thinking about how we use our time is the key component in achieving success and significance. The biggest barrier to thriving and not just surviving is the ability to think about what is important and not on what we can’t control. The need to refresh is a reward of focused productivity, the desire to stop is a consequence of chronic busyness.
Productivity is a result of pursuing what is important. Busyness is the result of aimless activity.
Your thinking determines your outcome. A negative mindset creates a negative outcome. A positive mindset creates a positive outcome. Creating your outcome determines the clarity of the goals in your future. Clarity reduces frustration, distractions, and disappointment. Clarity increases energy, focus, and momentum. It is your choice! If you think it is impossible, IT IS! If you think it is possible, IT IS!
