One Minute Motivator # 201

Limit your choices if you want to be successful.

Simplify your life by limiting the number of choices you have to make during your day to clear up room for important decisions.

Every decision you make, big or small, takes a piece out of your ability to make decisions. The more decisions you can eliminate, the more time and energy you have to devote to high priority issues. Make decisions about clothes, food, etc and turn them into habits so they go on automatic pilot.

What choice can you turn into a habit today?

The universe will not keep its part of the bargain with you.

You think you have a deal with the universe. Wrong!

We go through life setting up deals with the universes. “If I do this, then this will happen”. Saying that you will exercise every day and not get heart problems sounds great but the fact is that while this does increase your odds of being healthy, it is no guarantee. The universe does what it wants and the only person reading the rules is you.

It is time to look at the deals you think you have made with the universe and rethink them.

Don’t hold back ideas because they seem too simple? Many of the thoughts that you take for granted are true genius.

Once we have acquired a skill, or knowledge, we tend to downgrade their value. If we have a thought, we think anyone can have that thought. While in fact many other people would find them incredibly valuable, even profound. This causes us not to charge enough for our services, not to offer solutions, etc. This results in a loss to us and the rest of the world. Don’t be afraid to offer your opinion and thoughts even though you think they are obvious or too simple, many times they are just what are needed. Those unexpressed thoughts are a goldmine waiting to be exploited.

Change your mind if you want to be successful.

In our culture it has become a sign of weakness and unreliability if you change your mind. Yet as we grow, learn new things, develop new skills, etc, it causes us to look at ideas we had in the past differently. We see new and better ways to do things. At the same time we don’t want to look weak, indecisive, or admit we were wrong. So we cling to the old ways of doing things even though we know of a better way. Changing your mind is a sign of growth and improvement and presents a real opportunity to move your life ahead.. Set your ego, fear of looking weak or having been wrong aside and choose to begin a new, better way of doing things. The only regret you will have is not changing your mind sooner.

Your current income and savings level isn’t who you are now; it’s who you used to be. Income lags effort, so what you put out today, will not come back to you until some time in the future. It can be discouraging to be working hard and doing all the right things yet not have it show up in your income right away. When this happens review all the right things you have done, the goals you have accomplished, etc. and have faith it will pay off, because it will.

While everyone else is talking about it, successful people are quietly doing it. It doesn’t matter if you have a genius IQ, you can’t change anything or make any sort of real-world progress without taking action. There’s a huge difference between knowing how to do something and actually doing it. Knowledge and intelligence are both useless without action. Successful people know that a good plan executed today is better than a perfect plan executed someday. They don’t wait for the “right time” or the “right day” or the “right (impossible) circumstances”, because they know these reactions are based on a fear and nothing more. They take action here and now, today – because that’s where real progress happens.

In life, lots of people know what to do, but few people actually do what they know. Knowing is not enough! You must take action. I bet you see it all around you. I do this myself sometimes. You will see someone give amazing advice to someone else and then go off and not follow his or her own advice. They just don’t take action. I guess there are a million reasons why we know what to do but don’t do it. That said, there is only one fix and that is to take action when we need to. Start now to listen to yourself, and watch what you do or don’t do based on what you said. It will be a real eye opener. Don’t try to change everything at once, take it a step at a time and give yourself credit for taking action. Move the awareness that you took action up to the top of your mind in order to reinforce your taking action.

“A Goal Without a Plan is Only a Dream…” We have all heard that a million times, yet my guess is that you are sitting there without a plan. I understand, listing goals is fun; breaking them down into a plan is not fun. And it takes time. But you have to eat that frog and do the plan or else you will still be where you are now. The good news is that making a plan is probably no where near as hard or time consuming as you think it is. We all tend to overestimate the time and trouble things like this will be. Pick one of your goals and start to break it down into a plan. What is the first step that is needed and how can you do it? There you are already on your way to having a plan to go with your goal. This will give you more confidence you can do it and will help motivate you towards completing the plan.

Brian Tracy says starting your day with a clear idea of what you want to do changes EVERYTHING. Boy is right. Imagine not having to struggle though multiple cups of coffee, trying to figure out what to wear, what to eat, and so on. What a lot of effort. And at the worst time of the day to use your mind. No wonder most people don’t seem to come to life until noon, they haven’t figured out what they are going to, much less when or how. On the other hand if you take 15 minutes to create an outline of your next day, the evening before, you wake up and hit the ground running. No confusion, no wasted effort, just smooth action taking place almost on remote control. It is like getting two days productivity out of one. Can you imagine what that does to your ability to move things ahead?

In order for you to be successful, you are going to have to become a different person. Let’s face it; right now you are not successful in at least one aspect of your life. You may not have the knowledge, experience or will power needed to be successful in the area. So that is the current you. Once you gain that knowledge, experience or will power, you will become a different person. One that will succeed. And that will be a different person. If you want success, you have to be willing to become a different person.
