10 Home Truths To Remember Each Day copyLife is extremely busy. There are so many deadlines to keep and so many routines to follow, it’s easy to go through your days on autopilot. It’s too easy to lose sight of the most important things in your life.

There are essential truths in life that need repeating – often! Keep the following list of timeless truths handy so you can refer to it time and again. If you’re anything like us, we need constant reminding of these things.

busy isn't productive1) Busy Isn’t Productive

Look around you. Everyone’s seemingly busy. They’re running from one pointless meeting to the next, banging off emails to multiple recipients, pretending that if they’re busy they MUST be important! But ask yourself this: how many of them are truly productive? And how many are successfully living a balanced life on their terms?

Because Success doesn’t come from busy-ness and running round like a headless chicken. No! It comes from a focused, wise, and productive use of your time.

We all get the same 24 hours each day. You need to use yours intelligently. Remember, success comes from your output, not from the effort you put in. So be sure to focus on tasks that produce results – so, in online business, it’s the money making tasks.

All too often we see people wanting their website to be perfect before they start marketing – that’s a big mistake as it’s not the best use of their time.

Success Follows Failure2) Success Follows Failure

Most of us are brought up to think failure is bad. As entrepreneurs, we’ve learned that failure is learning – therefore it’s good.

To experience true success, you need to embrace failure. You need to make mistakes in order to succeed, because mistakes are the crossroads on the entrepreneurial journey of finding the right road to success.

Most people we coach with their marketing have their biggest breakthroughs when they’re tearing their hair out with frustration. The feeling of frustration makes them see things differently. It makes them dig deep, change tack, and seek solutions by taking a high level view of their situation.

Success requires perseverance. It requires self-belief. And it requires a positive attitude towards failure.

Fear Breeds Regret3) Fear Breeds Regret

At the end of the day, you’ll regret the chances you passed up due to fear more than you’ll regret actually failing. So, embrace risk with open arms.

We often ask people who are afraid of starting an online business: “What’s the worst that can happen to you? Will you die?” It’s as if death is the worst thing that could happen. But it isn’t!

The worst thing that could happen by letting fear get in the way of change and success is dying a slow death inside while you’re still alive!

Cherish Your Self4) Cherish Your Self

When your happiness and satisfaction come from comparing yourself to others and their successes and failures, you no longer control your destiny. When you’re happy about something you’ve accomplished, don’t let anyone else’s opinion of you or anyone else’s accomplishments take that joy away from you.

Of course, it is impossible to go through life not caring what others think about you. Still, you’re unique and you shouldn’t compare yourself to others.

Also, you should take other people’s opinions with a grain of salt. Regardless of what anyone else says about you, the truth of the matter is, you’re never as good or never as bad as they say you are.

Associate With The Best5) Associate With The Best

Search for friends and associates who inspire you. Surround yourself with people who encourage you to be a better person. And what about individuals who are insistent on dragging you down? Is there any good reason for having them in your life?

Anyone who adds anxiety to your life, makes you feel worthless, or leaves you feeling uninspired is wasting your time and is quite likely making you more like them. Life is too short to associate with these types of people. Cut them out of your life.

Life Is Short6) Life Is Short

Anyone of us could die today. Still, when a person dies unexpectedly, we all re-evaluate our own lives. We ask ourselves: “What’s really important to me?” “How should we spend our time?” “How are we treating those around us?”

Death is a painful, clear reminder of how fragile life is. But in truth, it shouldn’t be.

Every morning, when you’re getting out of bed, remind yourself that life is a gift. Make the most of the blessings you’ve been given.

Remember, a positive mindset creates a positive day.

Forgive Without Apology7) Forgive Without Apology

Life is a lot easier when you learn to let go of grudges and forgive people, even if they’ve never apologized to you. Grudges let unfortunate events from the past rob you of happiness today. Hate and anger will destroy your life and suck the joy out of it like a leech.

Negative emotions associated with holding grudges can lead to devastating stress-related health problems too, like high blood pressure and heart disease.

On the contrary, when you learn to forgive someone, even though you don’t agree with their actions, it frees you from their grasp and releases you from being their victim.

You Create Your Life8) You Create Your Life

Choose not to be a victim of your environment. Don’t allow circumstances to control you. No one can force you to make decisions which go against your values and your dreams.

The circumstances you live today are of your own making. You created them – just like you’ll create your future. If you feel stuck, maybe it’s because you are afraid to take risks, or maybe you’re afraid to be different.

Your future is a blank canvas – it’s up to you to paint the masterpiece.

Live The Moment9) Live The Moment

You can’t achieve your full potential until you’re able to live in the moment.

Guilt can’t change the past. Anxiety can’t improve the future. It’s impossible to be happy if mentally you’re somewhere else, or if you’re unable to accept the reality of the moment you’re living in whether it is good or bad.

To live the moment, there’s only two things to do:

[1] Accept the past. Make peace with it and leave it behind so you can create a better future.

[2] Accept the future is uncertain. Don’t waste a brain cell worrying about it. Worrying, like Mark Twain said, ‘is paying a debt you don’t owe.’

Embrace Change10) Embrace Change

There’s nothing we can do to avoid change. It’s going to happen anyway. So keep an open mind and embrace change, capitalize on it, and see it as an opportunity to experience and do new things.

Failure stems from ignoring change and living in a dream world where you believe you can continue to do the same things and ignore change hoping it’ll go away. Just like the digital economy we’re in right now.

As Einstein said: “Insanity is going the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”

Life doesn’t stop for anyone. When things go smoothly, enjoy them because sooner or later things will change. Life is roller coaster.

If you’re always living for tomorrow, always looking for the next thing to make you happy, you’re never going to be present enough to treasure the great moments as they happen.

PLEASE ALWAYS REMEMBER AND CONSIDER . . .

You’re working hard and smart to build your online business but you’re just not getting the traction and momentum you want.

You’re not getting enough prospective customers.

You’re not connecting with them on a trusting level.

You’re frustrated as hell – cursing beneath your breath and ready to throw in the towel.

The SOLUTION? Read this story . . .

A story of courage, consistency, and commitment.

It all started in a remote rural village called Bihar in India.

The village was poor so had no services. Villagers had to walk to the neighbouring village to go to the market, go to school, and go to the hospital.

Which doesn’t sound too bad does it? Many people in the western world expect to have to commute to their jobs each day, every day!

However . . . there’s a MOUNTAIN in between the poor village and the rich village, and it’s a 70km walk AROUND the mountain to get to the markets/school/hospital – which is a long old hike there and back each day, every day.

Not to be deterred, the people from the poor village used to scramble OVER THE TOP of the mountain – a treacherous journey – a craggy ascent, then a rough trek back down again. And that’s just one way.

So the people from Bihar had many accidents on that mountain. And broke many precious possessions in their falls.

courage, consistency, and commitment

One day, a local labourer, Dashrath Manjhi, was making the journey with his sick wife, and she slipped and badly hurt herself.

That accident was the catalyst Manjhi needed. He thought “enough was enough“. He decided to cut a road through the mountain because he wanted the people of his village to have easy access to doctors, jobs, education, and opportunities.

So . . . he SOLD 3 GOATS to buy a hammer, a chisel, and a crowbar.

Armed with only that hammer, chisel, and crowbar, he started to carve a road through the 300 foot high mountain.

They Thought He Was Mad

For a living Manjhi used to plough other people’s fields by day, then chip away at the mountain at night.

News spread like wildfire that Dashrath Manjhi had gone mad!

People used to tell him he couldn’t do it.

Have you ever been told you can’t do something? It makes you even more determined and resolute to do it doesn’t it?

Manjhi’s wife supported him, but unfortunately she eventually died due to a lack of medical treatment! That made Manjhi even more driven to build the road to benefit the whole of society, but also as a tribute to his wife.

When The Going Gets Tough, The Tough Get Going

The remarkable thing is . . . He did it!

He finished that road carved through the mountain.

It took him 22 years.

But he consistently kept chipping away, and chipping away, moving closer and closer to his goal, persistently persevering and never giving up.

Courage, Consistency, Commitment

The moral of this story is: when you want something worthy of working towards, you need to have courage, consistency, and commitment.

No job is too big. No mountain too big. No task is insurmountable when you’re resourceful.

It’s the same with building an online marketing business.

You need to be determined to succeed.

As an online business is a lifestyle business, so it’s definitely worth working smart for. You need to be prepared to consistently undertake the money making tasks on a daily basis (that’s building your list, blogging and broadcasting), day in and day out.

Rise to the challenge – and don’t let anyone talk you out of it (because there WILL be people who will say you’re mad and will want to steal your dream out from under your feet!).

Be prepared to soldier on and overcome problems that will stump you every now and then.

Be prepared to chip away at big tasks, and break them down into achievable chunks that you know you can do.

Be prepared to benefit and enrich other people’s lives with the products you promote.

Remember, living life per your values is a huge prize worth striving for.
