You Are Amazing!
- You can think, feel, decide, change your mind, and accomplish extraordinary things.
- You can constantly write and rewrite the story of your life.
- You can design your life and change your future.
- You can have anything you want.
Your amazing brain has the ability to process enormous amounts of information, learn huge quantities of facts and data, and apply your mind to achieving happiness, health, wealth, wisdom and an ideal life.
No Limits on Your Potential
Your true potential is only limited by your imagination and by your willingness to do whatever it takes. And since there are no limitations on what you can imagine, there are no limitations on what you can do with your life except those you put on yourself.
You have the ability to set goals, make plans, learn almost anything, manage your time, communicate and negotiate, break through your obstacles, and achieve success and happiness.
What Stops You?
With all these advantages and potential...
- Why is it that most people don’t fulfill their greatest potential?
- Why is it that so many people are living a life of mediocrity instead of living a life of greatness?
Why Do You Do the Things You Do?
You are always free to choose.
The only thing you have complete control over... is your thinking.
Your life, in every way, is the result of the choices you have made up until now.
Since only you can make the choices affecting your life, you are totally responsible for everything you are and everything you become.
To start creating your ideal life - you need to understand who you are and how you got to where you are today. Once you know these, you can move forward with confidence to create the future you desire.
A Lesson in Economics
How would you like to learn four years of university economics in a couple of minutes?
All you have to do is answer three simple questions honestly.
Question #1 - Easy or Difficult?
If you would have to choose between 2 jobs (or 2 businesses), both pay the same, but one is easy and the other is difficult.
Which one would you choose?
Anyone who is honest would prefer the easy job.
Just like preferring the easy way to achieve optimal health, great relationship, climate change, world peace or any other goal.
It’s not good or bad. That’s just how we are wired as human beings.
Question #2 - More or Less?
If you could get two different salaries (or income) for doing the same work: €10,000 per year or €100,000 per year.
Which one would you choose?
Again... anyone who is honest would prefer to get more for their effort - if it’s in money, love, happiness, fame, or any other measurement of success.
It’s not good or bad. That’s just how we are wired.
Question #3 - Sooner or Later?
Now that you have chosen the easier job paying €100,000 per year, if you could get paid in full today, or one year from today, which date would you choose?
And again... anyone who is honest will prefer to have their reward as soon as possible. We’d like to get paid, lose weight, gain a 6-pack, graduate from university, win an award, have our book published... As. Soon. As. Possible.
And again... It’s not good or bad. That’s just how we are wired.
And here is the promised lesson, a summary of four years of university economics:
EVERYONE is Lazy, Greedy and Impatient
Let this sink in for a moment.
Every person, everywhere, in all circumstances... including you... is by nature: lazy, greedy and impatient.
The qualities of laziness, greed and impatience apply to saints and politicians, businesses and customers, young and old, rich and poor, educated and uneducated.
This is the way the world works. Because this is human nature.
- You might be shocked or angry by this description of human nature.
- You might deny that this is an accurate description of who you are.
- You might not accept that others behave this way.
But this is not an opinion; it is an honest and clear description of the basic driving forces of human nature.
And Now What?
Now let’s take the two facts we discussed in this article, and put them together:
- You are lazy, greedy and Impatient. AND....
- You have the ability to think, feel, decide, change your mind, and accomplish extraordinary things.
And suddenly a roadmap appears...
Instead of having to fix your situation, your partner, your circumstances, the economy, or the politicians... maybe all you have to do is work on your basic attitudes... laziness, greed and impatience...
In the coming 3 articles, we will show you how to deal with laziness, greed and impatience.
But until then...
