Nod your head in agreeance if you have or had the belief that anything good has to be worked really hard for?
“A dream does not become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination, and hard work.” ~ Colin Powell, former U.S. Defense Secretary
“I’m a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work, the more I have of it.” ~ Thomas Jefferson, former President of the United States
“No matter how hard you work, someone else is working harder.” ~ Elon Musk, entrepreneur
These are great quotes and yes, they’re true!
But what do people start believing when they hear of quotes like these?
That you can only have success if it’s done the hard way.
You see, here at The Freedom Era, we have a lot of people that get started in business with us that believe that if they’re not always “working” and “doing” then they’re not going to get the results.
But here’s another quote for you to ponder on
“Thinking is the hardest work there is, which is probably the reason so few engage in it.” ~ Henry Ford, American industrialist and founder of Ford Motor Co.
What we believe to be true, is that 80% of your results come from 20% of your action. This is known as Pareto’s Principle and it’s something that you have probably heard of before.
What we see this to mean in a business sense?
Spend more time and energy thinking, visualising, working on your mindset and FEELING successful, and less time DOING the “hard work”.
You’re sharpening your axe so to speak so you’re not breaking your back trying to chop down a tree with a blunt tool.
The more you focus on what may seem like you’re not working – mindset, visualisation, raising your vibration, feeling energetically alive and connected to success – the faster and more precise your action is and you will ALWAYS get better results.
