The Fantastic Life Rule #18: Do Nothing in Moderation
Your family life, your work life, your personal life.. whatever you give your energy to, give it everything you’ve got. To succeed only in one area of life sells you short. Moderation can be the enemy of success in all forms. So don’t hold back, go for it!
Words of a Champion
Don’t stop growing! My guarantee to you is this: Whatever brought you to the level of success you have today will not be enough to keep you there. You must be willing to change, grow, and learn. To maintain your success, you will need to grow because your competition is growing and improving. If you want to expand your business and increase your growth, your learning will have to be even greater.
One easy way to grow is through CD training. We are in our cars hours a day to and from appointments, home, work, and other areas of life. If you live in a large city, you are caught in traffic for a significant chunk of the day, so why not use it towards your growth? Listening to a number of audio trainings during that time dramatically changed my thinking, philosophy of success, skills, knowledge, and attitude. I would not be where I am today without establishing the habit of turning off the radio. Even today, the only time music is playing in my car is when my children are in it. I’ve traded the song “Wheel in the Sky” for “Wheels on the Bus,” but that is all the music that plays, even today. Don’t waste your time; invest it in your future.
One word of caution – be careful what you listen to. Whatever you grant the honor to play in your car has influence over your life and success. Make sure it deserves to be there! Make sure the philosophy and personal results they espouse in life are congruent with what you want to achieve. Look beyond the easy one to spot the money. Take a deeper look at the speakers’ relationships, family, and character. There are a lot of people who have achieved wealth and material success but have really blown it in the other more important areas of life. They might have created a lot of income, but lost out in every other account in life. If you follow through and apply this process you will achieve what they have. However, in some cases, you might not want it. Use “Auto University” to your advantage.
