2016 was a fantastic year. I accomplished so many things, I achieved goals one after another, I’m not only doubled my income, I increased it by 500%.
I read 28 books in 2016, 4 in the past 60 days. I learned a lot of new skills, one of them is how to make videos from scratch; this video is one of the few that I made (hope you like the outcome.)
And it not only my financial life. I love what I do, and I do what I love. I have loving relationships with family and friends, almost perfect love life with an incredible partner. Some of my friends asking me if I ever have a “bad day” because every time they see me, I look like a million dollar. But one of the most important things I have is gratitude, gratitude for every single thing in my life because it isn’t obvious to have everything you want, you have to take this journey and see there it leads you. Life is always full of surprises or in better words: “Life is like a box of chocolate, you never know what you get.”
So I’m started 2017 not only with confidence that I can do it but also with the knowledge that I already did it. I have an amazing life, and I wish you the same.
Invest In Yourself – Video Transcript:
How do you spend your time?
See, whatever you’re doing
However, you spend your time
that tells you who you are,
so think about what it is you like to create in your life experience.
Once I look at how you commit your time
once I do an evaluation on how you spend your time,
I can tell you exactly what you’re committed to.
How much time do you spend working on you?
How much time do you spend every day working on your dream?
And the last 90 days, how many books have you read?
And the last year, what new skill or knowledge have you acquired?
What kind of investment have you made in you?
A lot of people as soon as they punch out, they rush home to sit on the couch,
they rush home to do nothing,
they rush home to just sit there and figure out okay I’m going go to sleep do it all tomorrow.
You have to give it everything you’ve got!
No more TV, no more parties, no more plan.
If you have a 4.0 what you need to be doing is study.
This is a life class.
That means that we have an opportunity to learn how to maximize our lives.
Think on the things that you’re doing, that somebody else could be doing,
and think of yourself as a precious commodity,
that you are going to reserve your energy for your highest and best use.
All the successful people have the exact same amount of time that you have each day,
so that did they do that you may not be doing,
they invested in themselves on the weekends, after work, in the evening.
They put time on something that they wanted to do.
They invested their own time in themselves.
We are busier than any other generation we have seen in the last three to four hundred years.
We are just as busy as we can be and we think because we’re busy, we’re effective.
But I want you to challenge your schedule for a minute and ask yourself:
Are you, are you really being effective?
Or is your life cluttered with all kind of stuff that demands you? And drains you? And taxes you?
And stops you from being your highest and best self?
And are you substituting busyness and all the chaos that goes along with busyness from being effective?
Nobody is too busy; it’s just a matter of priorities.
It takes time to be creative.
You are meant to be creative.
You were created in the likeness and the image of the creator
And in that likeness, and in that image, you have creativity.
If you had time, you would be creative.
The most important thing is to value our time.
So what are you going to do with this time?
How much of it do you think you’ve already used up?
What are you gonna do today? How do you invest in yourself?
If you found value in this video, please give it a thumbs up and pass it on so I can create more. Thank you!
