The Feeling of Success
“Success is nothing other than a feeling. Some people feel 'successful' after taking their dog on a walk. Others feel like a failure if they don't get 1,000 Instagram likes."
For some, a big house makes them feel successful; maybe for a day, maybe for a month or year. For others, success includes a life of service and contribution that provides fulfillment.
Both situations equate to a moment in time when one FEELS SUCCESSFUL.
Thus, to feel successful, it's important to ...
“During the darkest days of the Model 3 program, I reached out to Tim Cook to discuss the possibility of Apple acquiring Tesla (for 1/10 of our current value). He refused to take the meeting." @elonmusk
As much as rejection sucks, often, the further removed from it we become, the more it seems like a blessing.
After a rejection, two narratives may emerge. One takes us toward a direction of doom—a story and outcome we do not desire. But the other narrative can be hopeful—a story of possibilities.
Heaven & Hell, A Different Take
“What if hell was the experience of meeting the person you could've become the moment before you die, and heaven was the same experience because you fulfilled your potential —or came close?"
How do YOU match up with your ideal self?
How do your habits match up with the idealized future version of you?
In fact, this, arguably, is what the Habit Factor is all about: the pursuit of idealization (see our episode devoted to idealization).
My Gift to You!
"If you had a $10 million racehorse, how would you treat it?"
Each of us has been given a $10 million racehorse, so how are you going to treat this expensive thoroughbred?
Naturally, you'll ensure it gets the proper nutrition and enjoys ample exercise and sleep. In short, you'll make absolutely certain its wellness habits are in order.
The punchline is this: YOU ARE THE PRICELESS THOROUGHBRED. And NOW—this moment—is the only time that really matters to make the choices that support this truth!
“Balance is key. Balance good, karate good. Everything good. Balance bad; better pack up, go home.”
Today’s Mind Bullet explores the monster concept of BALANCE. Balance may be one of the most misunderstood life principles, yet it is a master key to an effective life.
The first core idea is that balance is NOT something you should ignore, and it isn't a MYTH, as many "gurus" proclaim.
Balance is less about a moment in time and much more about a process—it's about adjustments.
Sharpen the Axe & Saw!
“Give me six hours to chop down a tree, and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.” ~Abraham Lincoln
Learning, working out, and taking care of ourselves are examples of sharpening the saw. Anything we do to better ourselves improves our efficiency and our effectiveness.
When you devote time to your energy, your energy gives you back time.
Effectiveness is doing the right things. Efficiency is doing them correctly. Little point in being efficient if we aren’t first effective.
