How to Get Rich Systematically – Taking Time Out For Success

Taking time out of the rat race to get rich is smart. Especially when you consider the time, and energy used up at dead end jobs that offer no hope of future success. Time is something we can never get back, or change.  Most people are uncomfortable with change even though it’s desperately needed. We must open our mind with new possibilities to move our life forward.

This blog is not about being greedy, or having selfish ambitions. It’s about being smart, and creating a successful lifestyle that improves your life. It challenges you to do things differently – Even if that means to start over, and go a new direction.

Getting rich without a doubt

After years of case study Napoleon Hill ( Author of Think, and Grow Rich ) found some answers to getting rich. He spent 25 years interviewing the most successful entrepreneurs in the world, before reaching a conclusion. What he found went completely against traditional teachings about success. His findings had nothing to do with being smarter, or working harder.

Many of the people Napoleon Hill interviewed started out poor with little education. What set them apart was an unwavering confidence of success despite their circumstances. They learned to to use time, and knowledge systematically to produce massive wealth. Even in their darkest moments of failure they were so certain, and determined nothing could stop them. They visualized themselves getting rich before it ever happened without any doubt.

Most great people have attained their greatest success just one step beyond their greatest failure. Napoleon Hill

This is not the way average people think. The part of you that wants to succeed must overpower any doubt, or insecurities you have about your success. Average people only dream of “getting rich” then they get distracted, and caught up in everyday life. To rise above mediocrity we must elevate our life to a whole new level without any doubt of success.

Training your mind for success

To get rich you must think in a new way with an intentional process that trains your mind for success. There’s a lot good that money can do when our heart is in the right place. Most of us only use 5% of our brain’s capacity to think, so we have unimaginable potential to create any life we desire.

Regardless of our minds capacity we only have 24 hours a day to make things happen. Having more knowledge is great, but without a plan of action nothing changes. Below you’ll learn to train your mind, as you put together a plan for success.

Taking time out for new beginnings

Taking time out to evaluate our life is the starting point for new beginnings. It also helps open our mind when we feel stressed, and unsure about our next move.

Here’s a few examples below:

Learn more: Each of us have a learning curb that can be enhanced. Some of the key principles to  getting rich is the ability to learn with increased comprehension.

Stop wasting time: We can’t change time, or manipulate it, but we can change the way we use it. Avoid time killers, and unproductive habits that waste time, and energy.

Be consistent: Be systematic in your daily routine to avoid any setbacks. Establish a daily method of operation with more organization detailing certain goals to accomplish each day.

Get systematic: We usually get good at things we do over, and over. Use this same process to develop skills that make you rich over time with systematic certainty.

Duplicate success: Find successful people that have what you want, and duplicate what they do. Be creative in your own skin, but try to reach out to mentors that can give excellent advice.

Be creative: The more fun, and creative you are at getting rich, the better you’ll be at it. Make every effort to expand your imagination with more creativity, and adventure.

Grow in personal development: The more you work on yourself the more success you’ll have in everything you do. Learn the art of personal development to help grow, and improve every area of your life.

Take time out to apply some of these examples, and you’ll be well on your way to new beginnings. You’ll learn to get rich systematically with more confidence than you’ve had in your lifetime.

Making a positive change in your life

When we get to a place where we feel disconnected from our work it could be a sign that some positive changes are needed. Have you ever stopped and asked yourself why you do what you do everyday? Is it working? Or are you just spinning in circles hoping for the best, and getting nowhere. The only point of power we have to make positive change is now. The question is are you ready? The answer depends on your inner desire to do things in a better way.

Our motivation plays a huge role, but without an avenue of success it usually has a shelf life. We must get past the hype, and systematically get rich with a master plan using time more efficiently. This is what will make positive change a reality as you learn to harness your full potential.

Designing  a systematic plan of success

There should be no doubt that getting rich is a systematically designed process. The only thing to do at this point is to develop a plan of action that positions your life for complete success.

Make a promise: Before crafting a well thought out plan make a promise to yourself that you’ll stick to it. Then review it daily to remind yourself of that promise.

Be specific: As you begin to write down ideas make them as specific as possible. If you’re unsure about certain areas of interest then take time to do some research to expand your knowledge.

Design a work in progress: Make your master plan flexible as you design it. When better ideas come make some changes as a work in continual progress.

Involve other people: Any successful plan always includes other people to make it a reality. Share it with people that you trust to get an honest opinion, and perhaps more ideas you never thought about.

Put your plan into action at once. You’ll never learn better ways of do things until you take action. This will probably take you out of your comfort zone which is necessary.

Final Thoughts

Using these principles can change the course of your life with more confidence than ever before. There’s an art to getting rich, and doing things in a systematic way. We must train our mind to stay focused on what we want instead of constantly absorbed in what we don’t want. Having a dream to succeed with an organized plan to achieve it without a doubt is the key to getting rich.

How to Reclaim Your Life Passion

Losing your life passion is easy when other options pay more money, or they’re more convenient. In short term these options may provide a sense of security, but long term make you miserable. When we don’t have a passion in our work we can easily feel out of sync on a daily bases.

As human beings we need a life passion like oxygen to keep us in a constant state of internal motivation. Dreading each day to do something we hate is no way to live life. Here’s how it goes! Put your dreams aside, get educated, get a good job that pays lots of money, and live happily ever after. The problem with this formula is that it seems logical at first, but the end result many times leads to regret.

Years later we get the “what if” syndrome! What if I would have? What if I started that business I was so passionate about years ago? I wonder where would I’d be today if …. The bottom line is that it’s easy to play it safe, and follow our head instead of following our intuition, that inner call that pulls us another direction.

The good news about life

The good news is that no matter how things have turned out it’s never too late to reclaim your life passion regardless of age, or past.  To start over, and follow your bliss. To regain a sense of belonging that keeps nudging us with an itch to do something new. When we lose sight of what really makes us happy it’s probably time to go a new direction. But even though this is so obvious …  It’s easy to stay in the same old rut that has kept life on hold for years hoping that things will get better.

This is why people who never connect their life with a passion usually never get very far. Taking a step back can help determine whether your moving closer, or farther away from the things you love. Becoming more self aware in your daily routine can help determine whether your happy, or wasted time and energy on a dead end road going nowhere. Your life passion is not always easy to find, but the good news is that life rewards those who do, and it far outweighs the effort.

 Discovering your passion

Discovering your passion is frustrating when you don’t understand what you want. For example those in college taking out loans for a degree in something they have no interest in. Others are influenced to follow their parents, or peers dream instead of their own. Once you have a deeper understanding of yourself it’s a lot easier to align your career, lifestyle, and business with the direction you want to go.

Suppose you know deep down that something is missing in your life, but to the outside world your life seems perfect. There’s a disconnect between reality, and what you truly want.

Spending a lifetime in an environment that pulls us away from our aspirations is not smart. If you don’t have a passion you can develop one with a little imagination. But you will need to train yourself to think outside the box, and brainstorm new ideas that catch your interest. Here’s some examples below:

Brainstorming passionate ideas

  • Read Books: Start reading magazines, books, and articles until something strikes your interest. This can help your mind open up to new ideas.
  • Learn new skills: Learn the art of practice with new skillsets that make you feel awkward, challenged, and uncomfortable. If you want to grow you have to get uncomfortable at first.
  • Develop your curiosity: Successful entrepreneurs know this well. They ask questions, and have a keen interest in new things. Average people walk by opportunities everyday with no curiosity.
  • Motivate yourself: Surround yourself with things that make you feel amazing, and begin to move your energy, thoughts, ideas, and creativity in that direction.
  • Start small: Whenever we have a burst of energy it needs to be maintained with consistency. Start out doing small things without being overwhelmed with this new way of life. Big things often have small beginnings.
  • Dream Big: If you’re going to have a dream make it big. Why not? It takes just as much effort to think small as it does to think big. If you can’t do big things, do small things in a big way.

There is no passion to be found playing small – in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living. Nelson Mandela

Reclaim old hobbies 

It’s amazing how small things that you’re passionate for can lead to great success. Reclaiming some of them old hobbies of the past with a little creativity can make you a lot of money doing something you love. What did you love doing in the past that you’re not doing now? Do you have that same passion in the things you’re doing now? Maybe it’s a money issue! You might be surprised how much money you can make doing things you enjoy.

You owe it to yourself to reclaim your happiness. Once you find your passion “go for it” with everything you got. Surround yourself with people who inspire you for success.

Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world. Harriet Tubman

Finding hidden treasures under layers of the past

Your life passion maybe hidden treasure in plain sight. Sometimes it’s hidden in deep layers of the past. When you train yourself to brainstorm new ideas try to focus on things you love doing now, and things you loved doing  in the past. This process could help you reclaim a long-lost passion that can actually make you a lot of money. Sometimes you have to take a few steps back before you can move forward to improve your life.

Write down every new idea you can think of no matter how silly it is. You would be amazed at how many people have gotten rich from silly ideas. Let’s be honest. If you’re going to connect your life passion to your work you might as well make a lot of money doing it right? Brainstorming ideas is a great place to start. Do it often and it will help you expand your imagination.

Make your life passion internal

Passion is something that should always be internal. You can do a lot to change the environment around you, so that you’re surrounded with positive energy; however you will never be able to separate yourself from negative influence.

For this reason it is critical that you make your passion in life internal. Even in the darkest hours when faced with major obstacles, you can keep moving forward when your passion is internally ingrained within you. When your passion is internal success will come naturally.

Develop a passion for learning. If you do, you will never cease to grow. Anthony J. D’Angelo

Why it’s never too late to follow your dreams

Years ago Ray Price a close friend of mine spent 40 years in the meat industry before finally retiring at 65. He was a passionate bass fisher who never stood still, and found himself getting bored after retirement. So he started making bass jigs from home to keep his sanity when he wasn’t fishing.

Soon afterwards he opened a bass shop where he made bass jigs for the local community. Within 2 years he had several employees making bass jigs sent all over the world. After 3 years of retiring he was making more money than he ever did in his entire life.

He told me one day he would have quit the meat industry years earlier…. if he had known how much money he could make doing what he loved. He taught me a great lesson in life. It’s never too late to find your bliss, and follow your dreams.

He died the same day as my sister, and both of them had a huge impact on my life. Both were very successful, and taught me how important it was to connect my life with my passion. To follow your dreams and never look back with regret.

The road to success is not easy to navigate, but with hard work, drive and passion, it’s possible to achieve the American dream. Tommy Hilfiger

Final Thoughts

Continue reading things that inspire you: things that cause your inner drive to motivate you into action. Everything around us is an opportunity to discover something new, and exciting. Finding your life passion is one of the most satisfying things you will ever experience. Do everything in your power to connect your life with things you enjoy doing. It’s never too late to make positive changes, and start over with new beginnings.

 

Simple Daily Habits For A Better Life

Sometimes it’s the simple daily habits that can either improve our life, or make it much harder. Below are some ideas to make life a little easier, and enjoyable, while you move toward that big dream, and create a better life for yourself.

Daily Habits to Make Life Simple

  • Get present. Studies find the best way to stay cheerful is to stay centered in the present—even when it’s not all that pleasant. In contrast, a wandering mind and daydreaming can bring people down. The best way to re-center? Sit quietly for a few minutes and try some deep, calming breaths. Focus on the breath moving in and out of the body and gently guide attention back to the breath if the mind starts to wander.
  • Count your blessings. Think about or write down what you’re thankful for. Even if there’s not time to write down everything,expressing gratitude creates an instant mood boost.
  • Snuggle up. Climbing under a soft blanket for a few minutes might make us more relaxed and flexible. Researchers found there’s something about contact with soft things that just makes us feel better.
  • Do something nice for somebody else. Yep, being nice can help us feel nicer. Small actions—holding the door for the person behind you, sending a quick love text to a partner or friend, or donating ten bucks to a favorite charity—count, so there’s no excuse not to get your nice on.
  • Listen to a happy song. It’s quick; it’s easy; it’s an instant mood-lifter. Sing along (perfect pitch not required) for extra benefit.
  • Go somewhere quiet. Even if it’s just the office bathroom, taking a few minutes to sit in a quiet space with no external stimulation can do wonders for a bad mood.
  • Cuddle. Physical touch can decrease stress, make us feel happier, and even improve our health. For the single folks among us, don’t fret: Even a quick hug with a friend or acquaintance can yield benefits.
  • Hang out with a pet. Cuddling, playing, or just chillin’ with Fido can help us feel happier and less stressed .
  • Achieve a goal. Even small successes can have big mood payoffs. Toss a crumpled ball of paper into the trash can Michael Jordan style, win a game of Solitaire, pick up a pencil off the floor using only your toes—in moments you’ll be basking in the glory of accomplishment.
  • Give yourself a massage. A quick rubdown (focus on the neck, shoulders, lower back, and feet) can improve mood and release stress.
  • Meditate. Meditation is a quick, effective way to chill out and improve our outlook, and it might even make us smarter . Just a few minutes of sitting quietly, focusing on the breath, and maybe chanting a few Oms (silently or out loud) can snap us out of a funk.
  • Laugh. Laughter can cheer us up and decrease anxiety—and the best news is it doesn’t have to be “genuine” to have a positive effect. So even when it seems like there’s absolutely nothing funny in all of this world, busting out a big guffaw might just change your mind . Need help getting started? Check out the latest viral youtube videos, the Greatest tumblr, or anything said by Zack Galifianakis.
  • Do something new. We know, you’ve only got a few minutes; it’s not like you can change careers or fly to Iceland. The good news is even adding something small to a normal routine can brighten up a day. Order a chai if you normally drink coffee, take a different route to the bathroom at work, wear something you would normally never wear.
  • Dress up. Speaking of clothing: Buying new garb can amp up mood, but a person doesn’t have to drop cash to reap clothes’ benefits. Wearing the color red can boost confidence and self-esteem—which might just be the pick-me-up you were looking for.
  • Notice small miracles. Cultivating positivity and a sense of wonder can build positive outlook . Feeling stuck? Look around for small wonders (a butterfly, an act of kindness, something beautiful) or check out sites like Happy News, Good News Network, and Daily Good for a happier outlook on the world.

 

These are only a few daily habits that can help enhance your mood, and provide a better life. The point is not to try doing all of them in one day, but do some of them in your daily routine. I think they will make a big difference in your overall well-being. They can also help bring more structure, mental clarity, and balance with new things, new ideas, and new daily habits. This is the entire 34-ways to bust a bad mood in ten-minutes, or less.

7 More Daily Habits to Improve Your Mood

Below is 7 simple daily habits to help increase happiness, improve your mood, and ultimately bring a better life.

1. Munch on nuts.
For a mood-lifting snack, stash walnuts in your desk drawer. Or sneak salmon into your salad for lunch. They’re both packed with omega-3 fats, which may make people less prone to depression, and easier to get along with, say researchers from the University of Pittsburgh. They measured the blood levels of omega-3 fats (a reliable indicator of consumption) of 106 healthy adults and gave them psychological tests. Those with the highest omega-3 blood levels scored 49 to 58% better on the tests than those with the lowest blood levels.

2. Flip through old photos.

When you’re feeling down, break out your kids’ baby albums or pics from your favorite vacation. It may actually make you feel happier than a square of Godiva chocolate would. That’s what researchers at the United Kingdom’s Open University found after they examined how much people’s moods rose after eating a chocolate snack, sipping an alcoholic drink, watching TV, listening to music, or looking at personal photos. The music and chocolate left most people’s moods unchanged; alcohol and TV gave a slight lift (1%), but viewing pictures made people feel 11% better. To keep your spirits high at work, upload your favorite pics to your computer and set them as a rotating screensaver. Or splurge on a frame that flips through digital photos.

3. Inhale a calming scent.
Fill your office with a fragrant candle or diffuser to calm down during a deadline-packed day. In an Austrian study, researchers wafted the smell of oranges before some participants and lavender before others. The two groups felt less anxious, more positive, and calmer when compared with participants who were exposed no fragrance at all. Add a few drops of either oil to a room diffuser (we like the Scentball, available at amazon.com) and use in your office on stressful days.

4. Open your shades.
To feel happier in seconds, let the sunlight stream in when you first wake up. One study of more than 450 women found that those who got the most light, particularly in the morning, reported better moods and sleep. Got more time? Eat breakfast near a window that gets plenty of daylight, and put exercise equipment near a bright view. Some researchers speculate that combining exercise with morning light exposure may amplify light’s beneficial effects on mood, sleep, and alertness, says Anthony Levitt, MD, a University of Toronto light researcher.

5. Walk around the block.
If you work in a windowless office, make sure you step out to see the sun a few times throughout the day. “Studies show that people who get more light exposure during the day have fewer sleep problems and less depression, and evidence suggests that light can keep you alert and productive,” says Daniel Kripke, MD, a University of California, San Diego, light and sleep expert.

If you have more time, a longer bout of exercise may also spark a smile. “Lots of people skip working out when their moods aren’t ideal because they don’t have the mental energy to switch gears,” says mental health and exercise expert Jack Raglin, PhD, of Indiana University. “But the trick lies in finding the right workout to match the mood you’re in.” When you’re battling blues, try something low-key and mindless. “Studies have shown that even mild exercise, about 40% of your max heart rate, can lift your mood,” says Raglin. “So if you’re not up for the usual high-energy stuff, do some leisure activity you enjoy, such as digging in your garden or walking in a park. View it as mental recreation, not exercise.” If you’re angry, pick something that makes you focus. “As tempting as it may be, skip the kickboxing,” Raglin advises. “You can’t punch away anger. Instead, do something that involves your mind and keeps you from focusing and ruminating on what has you angry. Play racquetball, or take an aerobics class you’ve never tried. Learning new moves will free your mind from what’s upsetting you.”

6. Clear away clutter.

Disorganized heaps of paper in your cube or on the kitchen counter can make you anxious. For some, “clutter is a reminder of things that should be getting done but aren’t,” says Elaine Aron, PhD, author of The Highly Sensitive Person. “It can make you feel like a failure.” For a quick fix, straighten up a few surfaces in your office or in the areas of the house where you spend the most time. “It’s when every bit of space is messy that it’s most disturbing,” says Aron. Don’t bother to organize unless you have a chunk of time. Instead, arrange papers, books, and other detritus of daily living in neat piles or store them in baskets. “Just the illusion of order is enough to ease the mind,” she says.

7. Think fast.
Turn your thoughts into a race—it can lift the blues in minutes, says Princeton University psychologist Emily Pronin, PhD. For example, when your mother-in-law is driving you crazy, give yourself 30 seconds to make a list of all the ways she’s been helpful to you in the past—you’ll feel better fast. (If nothing nice comes to mind, quickly jot down other ways she bugs you; speed thinking negative thoughts can still improve your mood, Pronin found.) Researchers believe that rapid thinking may release feel-good brain chemicals—or it could just be a helpful distraction.  Here’s 2 minutes to a happier you.

Final Thoughts

All of these tips & tricks are an excellent way to bring more happiness, and improve your life. Hopefully some of these daily habits will help organize, and put some structure into your projects, and daily tasks. The best ways to avoid to0 much stress, and overload is to start out small. After all it’s the small things we do everyday that mold a better life.

How a Positive Attitude Changes Everything

They say a positive attitude determines how far we go in life, and everything else between. But does this apply when you’re in an environment where you feel unappreciated, detached, and misunderstood?

“How people treat you is their karma; how you react is yours”. Wayne Dyer

Our attitude affects our relationships, happiness, lifestyle, and success. Developing a positive attitude changes everything despite our circumstances. Statistically half the people born are optimistic by nature, and the other half are pessimistic. Which means there’s a 50% chance that you see life through a negative lens.

“If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change”. Wayne Dyer

Even the optimist will find it hard at times to have a positive attitude due from life experiences, influence, and social conditioning. So whichever you are,,,, Today is a new day for new beginnings. Forget everything your attitude has made of your life, and start over. Fine-tune it. Sand the rough spots, and start developing a positive mindset that transforms you into the person you want to be. Here are some ways how, and where to start.

Developing a positive attitude

Developing a positive attitude should be our top priority for any accomplishment. First we need to examine what a positive attitude looks like, and how certain parts of our character reflect it. We also need to see why people perceive us in a certain way.

Remember others cannot read your mind, so they measure you through social standing, body language, and communication. If you find a majority of people ignoring you, or not liking you maybe your attitude is misrepresenting who you are. The way you see yourself reflects back to you from other people.

Why is this important? Because how we relate to others determines our success, or failure in everything we do. Your attitude is an expression to the outside world of who you are. It does not matter if you’re right or wrong. What matters is that you develop a positive attitude that connects with people in a way that gives you what you want.

At a glance this may seem like manipulation, but in reality it’s called people skills. And without them we won’t get very far. Here are some ways to develop a positive attitude.

Shape your attitude with gratitude: Without gratitude we become discouraged, bitter, and resentful. Make every effort to embrace a spirit of gratitude in every situation. Seek the most insignificant things to praise, and you’ll find magnificent things begin to happen all around you.

 It’s easy to have a positive attitude when everything’s perfect, but what about when it’s not? You can’t climb a high mountain on a smooth surface.. You need deep crevices to support your next step. The deep crevices are scars – painful challenges that have made you stronger, and more resilient. When faced with challenges our true character always comes out. If you can embrace a positive attitude during the moment of truth your accomplishments will become unstoppable.

Win Big: We all know the world is filled with winners, and losers, but what separates the two? It’s obvious that hard work alone does not ensure success. The dividing line is a positive state of mind regardless of circumstances. This is what separates winners from losers throughout life. Highly successful people develop a winning attitude that eventually creates positive results.

Stay positive The most effective way to change circumstances is to change our attitude toward them. We must embrace a positive attitude, and take complete responsibility for every circumstance we find ourselves in. We must find solutions to hard challenges while removing physiological barriers that impact full potential.

This will change any perspective, and make life a better place to live. There are always things to complain about, but how they’re handled makes all the difference. There are answers to every circumstance we face when they’re seen through a positive attitude. This in my opinion is one of the most powerful effective ways to change your life, and make dreams come true.
