If you want a great life personally, professionally and spiritually then you will have to pay a price. You will be asked to make sacrifices. A mature person is willing to give up instant gratification for a long-term happier existence later. Every day we have choices to make. Stay in bed under the covers and let life go on by, or kick the covers off, jump out of bed and put in the daily consistent effort to take you to the life of your dreams.
Every day on the internet I see people selling products, courses, books etc promising the earth stars and the moon if only you would invest in this item, blah, blah blah. Most of it if not all of it is hogwash. They try to sell you on a quick, easy effortless path that leads to you handing over hard earned money, and results in you scratching your head and asking yourself why did I buy that? They come out with a sale pitch like this, Learn this secret technique to control others and get the girl, the flashy sport car the big house in the blink of an eye, just use these secrets and become happy, sexy and rich, for this one and only chance of a lifetime for 29.99 you will have the key to success hurry buy it NOW! I am not making this up, go online and see for yourself what people are selling. This is a very unscrupulous, dirty and unprincipled way to use people. In the long term nothing good comes out of doing business like this.
If you really want to succeed, and live and extraordinary existence then please understand it is all about working the basics of being excellent with a passionate consistency. You will be amazed at how far you will get and the results that will show up, simply by staying with something long enough. 99.9% of people give up too early. They worry, focus on bad things happening and let their fears outgrow their faith. They start believing the voice in their heads that tells them they can’t make it, and they fold up and quit.
By sticking with the following fundamentals anyone can achieve their dreams. Be positive, take responsibility for the things that are not working in your life, if a customer tells you they are unhappy with your product or service help that person by giving more and better service. Treat people like they are movie stars, WOW them every time they come to you to do business. Under-sell over-deliver. Work hard at making others feel great. Be self- disciplined, save money, reinvest in the business, value what you have and provide value for your clients. Make your name the image people think of when they hear the word excellence. Keep things simple, do what has to be done as soon as you can. Procrastination is cancer. Being proactive will pay off in time. Just keep going. Crafting an extraordinary existence is not easy but it is simple. It requires focus and effort. Take little steps every day to get you to your goals. Small daily increments lead to giant results over a lifetime. Every dream starts with a thought, cultivate those positive thoughts. Take the action you need to improve yourself, love yourself in a way that will benefit you and all the other people in your life. Grow, expand and develop your ability to give, to serve and to inspire others and the Universe will take notice and start working more in your life to bring the results you desire.
If you put more effort into making others look good, feel great and walk taller, then when you put your head down on your pillow at night, then you can sleep like a baby because you know you made a difference in someone's life today for the better. That is a great way to finish a day. Money, power, influence will come chasing after you if you live an honest, principled life. Keep the faith and go for it! Until next time I wish you peace love a success. Martin Acton Sensei
