From the ONE thing
🚫Don’t be a victim of your circumstances. Don’t say “I just can’t make it work.” My mom used to say, “When you argue for your limitations, you get to keep them,” but this is one you can’t afford. Figure it out. Find a way. Make it happen.
On #discipline 💯When you see people who look “disciplined”, what you’re seeing is people who’ve trained a handful of habits into their lives. The trick to success is to choose the right habit and bring just enough discipline to establish it.
#habits 📅It takes time to develop the right habit, so don’t give up too soon. Decide what the right one is, then give yourself all the time you need to develop it. It takes an average of 66 days to acquire a new habit, with easier behaviors taking fewer days on average and tough ones taking longer. Self-help circles tend to preach that it takes 21 days to make a change, but science doesn’t back that up. 📜narrowing your focus:
Knowing when to pursue the middle and when to pursue the extremes is in essence the true beginning of wisdom. Extraordinary results are achieved by this negotiation with time. The reason we shouldn’t pursue balance is that the magic never happens in the middle; magic happens at the extremes. The dilemma is that chasing the extremes presents challenges. We naturally understand that success lies at the outer edges. ✅#success comes down to this: being appropriate in the moments of your life. If you can honestly say, “This is where I’m meant to be right now, doing exactly what I’m doing,” then all the amazing possibilities for your life become possible. If disproportionate results come from one activity, then you must give that one activity disproportionate time. 💪The power of no: “Until My ONE Thing Is Done—Everything Else Is A Distraction!” The way to protect what you’ve said yes to and stay productive is to say no to anyone or anything.
