Just split the messages…well, yes, what I see often is that people tend to be too focused on only one specific thing in life. Which is really great in the beginning, as they have found something good for themselves. However, if they continue like that, they lose the “bigger picture”, lose there perspective of actually “living a life”, and it doesn’t need to be too long, they will start to lose friends, relationships, health, etc.
Sure, if you want to become “better” in something, you will do sacrifice other things in your life. We don’t have time to do everything. We decide every single day, what we want, or what we don’t want. After reading a couple of self-improvement or personal development books, they all talk about the same principles at the end: Study successful people, focus on your craft, eliminate bad habits, etc.
I see more and more, who are exceptional in their crafts and jobs. Kings of their game. However, still, a lot of them don’t live a fulfilling life, a life that is balanced in all aspects.
What I realized for me is that having a more balanced life makes me much happier than being a nerd, only thinking about that “one” thing and leaving everything and everyone else behind back. For me it’s unhealthy, and it’s not my nature.
Everyone decides for themself, what they find healthy and fulfilling. I have already found it. I love to help people out, wherever I can. Most people appreciate it and I receive a lot of positive energy out of it.
Not sure, I have said it in my ebook, or the last email, however, if there is even only one single thing I could give someone to make their live a little bit better, a little more positive, I have already won.
What I found out with time as well, is that for me “a true” professional is someone who shares his experience and helps others out, gives advice, shares his thoughts and recommendations. A saw many professionals trying to “hold everything only for theirself” and didn’t even want to answer questions, as it seems like they think: “Hey, if I share it now, they will know my secrets…! I don’t want that…”
So I always stay away from that kind of person, you waste your lifetime, don’t get positive energy out it.
There are always principles in life. It’s always good to study these principles, understand and implement them for your own life. There is no shortcut for nothing. Especially if we talk about money. I know many millionaires, and if you understand how much they actually work their butt off, you start to see the whole thing, the whole iceberg. Most people say what? He drives a Porsche, his father is rich. But don’t realize how much that family sacrificed their whole life in order to drive that Porsche…
