Today it is Friday all day long. It that doesn’t feel good, I don’t know what does. “The honest man reaps the good results of his honest thoughts and acts; he also brings upon himself the sufferings, which vices produce. The dishonest man likewise garners his own suffering and happiness.” I remember hearing Tony Robbins tell us over and over at his conference, which we went to earlier this year, that he works will multi-millionaire and billionaire men and women every day that are miserable. They have all the financial freedom one could ever dream of, but yet they are still unhappy. How is that possible? Two reasons. One, they don’t live a life of balance. Work is the only thing that is important to them. Two, they are not honest with their fellow men. Making another dollar is more important than the people they ruin to get there. No size of home, or luxury of car can overcome the feelings that man shall feel when they are not honest with themselves and everyone else.
“Good thoughts and actions can never produce bad results; bad thoughts and actions can never produce good results.” Many understand this law in the natural world, but we don’t understand it in the mental world.
Suffering is [ALWAYS] the effect of wrong thought in some direction. It is an indication that the individual is out of harmony with himself, with the Law of his being.
Once again, as we have said over and over again, suffering starts in our minds. And so does success. If we go back to Wednesday’s blog, which I believe to be one of the most valuable that I have written in a while. Valuable, because they are the principles that have blessed my life in so many ways. Principles that I still need plenty of work on, but principles that have increased my happiness and success one hundred fold.
Go back to Wednesday’s blog–Believe to Achieve–and rate yourself in each of the 13 categories from 1-5. Then, take the results, which are ranked 4 and 5, and put together a specific plan to make them even stronger. Let’s say that you are pretty good at living the law of #3, which is to exercise more. And let’s also say that you are at the gym 5 days a week for an hour each time. First of all, well done. That is impressive and not easy to do. Second, what can you do to take yourself from a 4 to a 5 in that category? Wake up 10 minutes earlier to get 10 extra minutes of cardio in. Or, don’t sit around resting in between reps near as long. Or, grab a jump rope and slay the jump rope in between every set.
There are several things you can do to increase your “exercise time.” Once you have found specific ways to get stronger in the categories you excel at, then take the time to make a plan on how to increase your capacity in those categories that you don’t. And I mean specific. How much earlier are you going to wake up to accomplish them? What exact time are you going to do them as well? Who’s help and encouragement do you need to accomplish it?
IT DOES NOT MATTER WHERE YOU STAND RIGHT NOW when it comes to these categories! Remember, it is never too late to make the right decision. Make improvements NOW! See the results NOW!
