- First, change your mindset.
Most of what keeps you back rests between your ears. You are the creator of your own experience of reality. Remember, pain is mandatory, suffering is optional. Quit blaming. Take full responsibility for your world.
How do you change your mindset? Choose to. Period. "The highest reward for your working is not what you get for it but what you become by it." Sydney Harris
- Second, become more efficient.
Quit wasting time, energy, and resources. It doesn't mean that you become a workaholic. It means you step back and view the waste in your life. Eliminate the waste, and the rest will follow. A neat line by Samuel Johnson: "Resolve not to be poor; whatever you have, spend less." Makes sense to me, and you can apply that to most areas of your life, right?
- And third, strengthen your personal and business connections.
We are not in this alone. The loner mindset keeps you from attaining your goals and becoming the kind of person that the world needs. . .and enjoys. Get out and network, go back to church, invite a coworker to lunch, reinvest energy, time, and emotion into the relationship with your significant other. Pay more attention to your kids. Kabbalist Michael Berg writes, "The only way to achieve true joy and fulfillment is by becoming a being of sharing."
