Without contest, success belongs to the most self disciplined person. However, this success doesn’t come without extreme amounts of sacrifice.
I have been very fortunate; I was able to learn these tips and tricks from a very financially successful personal friend. And so, I am going to teach you these very same tips.
The most important thing he said to me was “Shane you must say no to 99.9% of everything that comes your way!” Say no to new business opportunities, say no to traveling, say no to sitting on boards, say no to me. SIMPLY SAY NO! Instead, focus on ONE business item that is your core business. That’s it. Nothing else.
I created a routine that gave me the ability to hyper focus on the few most critical things.
For instance, I no longer scroll through social media so I am out of the loop on all the current gossip. By doing so, I have saved myself countless minutes. You know how it goes, you click one picture which leads to another and another etc etc. Society has turned technology into an addiction and we like sheep, are blindly following along.
Saying no is not an easy thing at all.
We all have a limited supply of willpower and energy. As we focus on multiple things at once we have to draw more energy which requires more willpower and leaves us more depleted.
My last bit of wisdom: start paying close attention to what you need to say no to and I can promise you that your life will drastically!!
