Keeping it Simple

Naturally, everyone wants the most out of life. They want to create that ideal balance between earning a living and having time freedom. Enough money to have the things they need and time to do the things they want with the people they care about. Generally, people aren’t greedy and having enough to live that Lifestyle is perfect, beyond that most want to contribute to the world around them. It boils down to something very SIMPLE, create your own ideal lifestyle and then help others.

So, a SIMPLE objective but then reality kicks in and it gets complicated. Or does it?

It is interesting to ask yourself, at what point will you feel satisfied with your life? The sad thing is that, for most, even at the very end they are still unfullfilled saying things like ‘I wish I had done things differently’ but by then it is too late.

The solution is SIMPLE, Start living your life the way you envisage living it when you have the things you are striving for. In other words start living it now! Start living with a feeling of contentment and gratitude as if you already have all you need and something amazing will happen. You will start to attract more of what you desire, more easily and more quickly.

It boils down to a state of mind and the reality is you can change your mind at any time. It is that SIMPLE. How to get that mindset might take a bit of effort. In my case I have over 50 years worth of entranched limiting beliefs and some poor habits to overcome. Even now I find myself slipping back into old ways of thinking. But at at least I recognise that and work to improve my behaviours moving forward.

Which brings me to the point of writing this. Personally I have clarity around living life now. Having the attitude of living the way I envisage it being in my ideal lifestyle as I work towards it. Not waiting for it to happen first. However, like most people I do need to earn a living on the way towards reaching my Lifestyle goals. What do I choose to do and how do I choose it?

After some time and having gone through a range of good and bad experiences I have come to following conclusion. Only work with people you like, trust and respect. SIMPLE.

I repeat, only work with people you like, trust and respect. Whatever you are involved in now ask yourself these three questions about the people around you. Do I like them? Do I trust them? Do I respect them? If the answer to any of those questions is ‘No’ you are in the wrong place.

Which brings me to the Internet and my business area of choice. The advantanges of working Online are obvious and well catalogued. As are the advantages of working from home or anywhere else you choose. However, how do you sort the genuine opportunities from the majority of rubbish out there. The good and the bad can look the same with very compelling and slick marketing. My answer is SIMPLE, choose the people not the product! Choose WHO you work with not WHAT you work with!

How?! That is SIMPLE too. Apply your common sense and gut instincts. If you can’t get to see and hear these people or there is no way of contacting them or finding out about thier backgrounds and experience you can’t make those judgements, so don’t. Just move on. Remember, only work with people you like, trust and respect. You choose who you work with. This is one of the great benefits over working a traditional job, you choose your collegues!

Which brings me to the final point about keeping it SIMPLE. Once you have chosen who to work with over what to work with then truly ‘the ball is in your court”. Since your only working with people you like, trust and respect they can’t possibly be responsible for you failing to make a success of your business. Think about this, often when you choose the product over the people you blame its failure on the people behind the product. The products no good they sold me rubbish, it doesn’t do what they said it did etc…..It’s your excuse. It couldn’t possibly be you. Now, maybe you are right or maybe you are wrong, who knows? However, if you have chosen the people first then what? People you like, trust and respect wouldn’t deliberately involve you with a rubbish product. So, the product must be fine, it is down to YOU! You have control and your responsible for your success or failure. SIMPLE.

 To sum up.

It is a state of Mind, change your mind. SIMPLE

Work with people you like, trust and respect. SIMPLE

Choose the people not the Product. SIMPLE

Apply Common sense and gut instinct. SIMPLE
