“6 Rules to kick ass in life: 1. Know that your only competition is who you were yesterday. 2. Earn, save and invest before you spend. 3. Avoid negative people, life is too short. 4. If you don’t go after what you want, you will never get it. 5. See failures as a beginning, not an end. 6. Our habits decide our future.” From www.awakening-intuition.com
Oh boy, it really is a kick in the ass when truth is said so clearly! Here’s another call to action for me. Each one repeating the previous. Even the angel cards I read just before reading this quote told me repetitious messages are what I need to listen to. So, time to change habits for better ones!
1 – There are only a few times in life where you are in direct competition with others, and even these can be learning opportunities. Take a moment everyday to reflect on your failures or successes, ask yourself where you might improve your performance, then plan to improve it tomorrow. Allow yourself to see failures as steps on the path forward, not destinations.
2 – This one is great wisdom that I don’t currently practice, at least with cash. However, if you take it in context of a project you’re working on, then each day has a goal to reach which is an accomplishment earned; invest a little time in carefully planning the next day’s goals, and set an objective to save time on achieving the next goal. The next day, you spend your time wisely and may even be able to spend some extra free time how you wish. Maybe I’m reaching with this analogy, but I see it in my mind.
3 – Nevermind how short life is, negative people ar just a drag. Why spend your precious time with them, if you can spend it otherwise? Now, be mindful that everyone else might also feel the same as you on this and always put a positive attitude forward. It will attract positive people to you and that can only help you stay, well, positive.
4 – Again the obvious statement cannot be argued. How does that saying go? Success is uncertain to those who try, but failure is absolutely certain to those who don’t.
5 – Yup! Failure is a result and we can make better action decisions based on results: corrective or improvement.
6 – If you always do what you’ve always done, you will always get what you’ve always gotten.
