It’s a fact: you don’t have time and space for EVERYTHING in your life.
So whatever you have in your life, or whatever you want, make sure you make it count.
What are some of the things I consider the most important in my life, right now?
I’ve been committing more and more to improving my health and fitness, and by commitment, this means devoting time and resources to making it happen.
There’s so much knowledge and information out there abut how to improve one’s health.
The approach I find that works best for me is to try what’s available, and to stick with what works.
Also, to find people I can trust, and take applicable knowledge and experience from.
Only lately did I confirm that the scoliosis that I had is partly lifestyle and poor choices, and also, partly congenital.
There’s an extra piece of bone that shouldn’t be where it should be, thus, predisposing me to having scoliosis, which then increases the chances that I would experience sciatica, as my spine would align naturally straight.
If health is important to me, it’s shown by my commitment to finding out more about my condition, what works, and to sticking to habits that improve my strength and fitness.
Also, the humility to do what everybody else is not doing. There are times that I feel I look like a sissy in the gym.
You know what? Other people’s opinions don’t matter. I want to be able to walk and live normally, and not look cool in exchange for my stability and health.
All the jobs, tasks, and work that I have ever been effective, inspired by, and stuck to, have always been in the service of other people.
Empowering people to do what they do best.
Helping people to get the results that they want.
Providing objective views that they need to hear.
I am now realizing that this is also something that I want to have more of in my life – an attitude of gratitude and service.
Because I feel service takes a backseat when I complain about people not meeting my standards.
Service flies out the window, when I expect people to act the way I want them to act.
Service vanishes when all I think about is how people should be treating me, not realizing the fact that these very people are outside of my control.
But it’s worth it.
Because for every failing that I’ve had to live out service, there are moment when I am able to do so, and I am flooded with gratitude and goodwill.
Thank you. It’s not about me.
It’s not only about money.
I mean, especially at this point in my life, where me and my wife are starting a family, and I’m looking to have a solid foundation to do that, money becomes more important.
But that’s not the end all, be all.
It’ s about flow. Not the money, and keeping it, but creating flows.
Having the money flow into you, and out of you, being spent for what is most important for you in your life.
Where you spend your money, shows you what is important to you, and your intentions.
Is it really towards building wealth? Or is it something else?
I admit, when I wasn’t keeping wealth, I was looking for ways to provide comfort for myself, and to protect my ego.
That didn’t build wealth. I ended up defending myself, but not growing my wealth – material, emotional, relational, or personal.
I just defended myself. In the end, by defending, I lost.
Wealth is about reaching out, doing, and making an impact, and letting that flow from you to other people as well.
But the commitment to do that, is what makes it real – are you willing to go the lengths to create the flow, keep it going, and not dam it up?
People feel that you keep wealth by damming the system, and accumulating.
History tells us that’s not true.
To create and have wealth, is to create larger and larger flows of it.
