Recently, lots of folks were sending me mails promising me great things in return of my money.
I thought I will just give you some FREE and useful resources.
Here is the list of my top 7 learnings from last year that immensely helped me to change my perspective and achieve all the goals I set.
If you choose to follow these tips, you can make this year your best year ever! These are free!
Don’t set more than 3 major goals for the year.
Most people attempt too much and achieve too little. Then they start doubting their ability, discipline and determination. What I have found useful is to set three major primary goals for each year. You can choose to have secondary goals, but the 3 primary goals are those must-have targets where you should spend most of your resources.
Adopt a Universal Perspective
Who are we? How big are our problems? Check out this video that went viral. It will help you to look at events/people/circumstances from what I call a Universal Perspective. From a Universal Perspective most of our problems look tiny and manageable.
Don’t manage your time, manage your T.I.M.E.
People and events rob us of our time, sometimes without our knowledge. Then there are people who tell us to do better “TIME management”. I have realized that what most of us need is T.I.M.E. management. The management of our Tenacity, Interest, Motivation & Energy to do what we set out to do. Here are three basic practical tips.
(a) Eliminate self-made negativity. Don’t be harsh on yourself. Other people might be doing that for you already.:-) Stay on your side! You need You!
(b) Whenever possible, avoid people who drain your energy, rob your time or make you doubt yourself.
(c) Seek out and mix with people who infect you with positive traits, energy and enthusiasm for life. (Please notice this: Confident, Positive, Enthusiatic individuals consciously avoid fearful, negative, lethargic people.)
When you manage your T.I.M.E., you will better utilize your time!
Listen to signals
Believe it or not, we are constantly bombarded with thoughts, ideas, “brain waves” and “hunches” that guide us along every day. The more mentally prepared we are, the more we are ready to receive, discern and adopt what is best in our lives. I would recommend that you listen to the strangest secret in the world by Earl Nightingale from the 1950s. If you make an effort to listen to this for 30 days, you will be amazed by your transformation. If you pay attention, you will notice that there are times during your day where you are more creative, intuitive and imaginative. Those are the birth places of invaluable ideas. Milk those moments!
Stay in touch
Strive to stay in touch with people who are like-minded. They will keep you on track. That’s not only nice, that’s necessary. We are easily distracted and taken off track by people, events and circumstances. Success is rarely achieved alone, we need people around us who can help us stay on track, to guide us, motivate us and keep us focused.
Add value to your Network
Generously share your knowledge, information and insight to people in your network. Most people are takers. Be the giver. The more generously you give, the more abundantly you receive!
Live without fear
There is lot of negatvity in our world. You hear stories and events that spread fear. Don’t get worked up and spread the fear. It does nothing to alleviate the situation. By all means stand up for your values, but don’t allow fear to seep into your system.
An entire sea of water can’t sink a ship unless it gets inside the ship. Similarly, the negativity of the world can’t put you down unless you allow it to get inside you – Goi Nasu
