BAD NEWS: People who stay in their own comfort zone fail to widen their horizons. They often abandon their plans too soon and settle for mediocrity. Even though they may actually be disciplined people who work hard for their living and are respected members in their inner and social circles. What a waste of the right advantages!
Our inner self reflects in our surroundings. If you’re truly trying to achieve some visible progress with a noticeable impact you have to shift existing behaviors and mindset in order to attract opportunities. Promising circumstances come to the people who attract them, to the people who develop and reflect their unique magnificent value. They often meet new people, build new relationships and form new business partnerships. It is vital to work on personal development and on character development.
How to work on personal development? Try this:
1. Organize your time!
Make sure to spend time with your family, on things you enjoy doing, dedicate to work and to your personal development! This is key to being on balance and to have the strength to make the extra push!
2. Spend time with positive people – people with winning habits, strategies and attractive personalities. They will teach you and encourage you! Make good use of this!
3. Perform daily routines to shape your character – systematic practice will transform you in a powerful person. Getting your habits right can mean the difference between success and failure. I recommend reading ‘The Power of Habit’ by Charles Duhigg. I’ve just finished reading it! J
