Having read the blog from Paul Rosenberg about his place on a panel of economics guru’s (he couldn’t understand why he was included, but when all was said and done it made sense), I was relieved to discover Paul’s understanding of what’s happening with the world bank. I’ve also been (not) surprised to find that the documentary Inequality For All shed light on the crisis we’re experiencing. Find Inequality For All on YouTube for more information. You’ll be glad you did!
By the way, I’m a believer in the perspective of seeing “crisis” as “opportunity”. Frank Capra (It’s a Wonderful Life) believed the same, as have many other heroes/heroines. Let’s get on with this post though!
Gary Ryan Blair is an amazing man. He also was an apt pupil with Brian Tracy. These two men have inspired this writer through many blue times. I have confidence in them both.
Today is Tuesday, January 14, 2014
How many days have you applied your very best efforts thus far this year? Well, you can keep your answer to yourself, but do answer that. Then, start today with your best efforts for this day!
Here are some pointers from GRB: EVERY GOAL YOU WANT to achieve requires the enforcement
of self-discipline, self-control and self-awareness.
To build a solid reputation with yourself and others, to earn
more money, to be in great shape, and to ensure success
in any area of your life, you must learn the discipline of:
o Looking for solutions rather than focusing on problems.
o Going the extra mile and exceeding expectations.
o Consistently adding value to your customers.
o Eating healthy foods and proper nutrition.
o Proper preparation and thorough planning.
o Saving and investing more than spending.
o Writing a thank you note to a customer.
o Managing your time and commitments.
o Giving more than you receive.
o Paying your bills on time.
o Honoring your commitments.
o Exercising self-control.
o Keeping your promises.
o Telling the truth.
In short, you must learn the discipline of self-discipline.
One of the great benefits of self-discipline is that each
act you engage in comes with a corresponding reward.
o For each failure you experience, you find new lessons and wisdom.
o As you overcome each challenge, you gain new understanding.
o With each success you achieve, your confidence grows.
o With each loss, you gain empathy and humility.
o For each book you read, you gain knowledge.
EVERY act of self-discipline in life bears desirable fruit, and
that is why…
