I titled this article with a quote from T. Harv Eker, author, businessman and motivational speaker. While we can’t control what life gives us (more lemons for some), we can control our attitude towards it. Most people show up at a job because they have to, not because they want to. They just go with the flow, hoping someday, someone or something will lead them the right path. Can we expect a pay raise or a promotion when we’re only giving half of what we’re capable of? Are we getting too comfortable with where we are that’s why we stop giving it our best shot?
If there’s one thing we can learn from real estate investor, Grant Cardone (Uncle G!!), it’s to never be comfortable. As soon as we are comfortable with the status quo, we stop striving for better, we stop taking risks, and we just tell ourselves to be content with what we have. Don’t get me wrong. I am not asking you to be ungrateful for what you have today, but I’m suggesting that if you’re capable of more, why limit yourself? We’ve got one life and we ain’t got time to waste on something (or someone, but that’s for a thoughtcatelog article) we won’t thank ourselves 5 years from now.
If I could summarize the learning points from both T. Harv Eker and Grant Cardone, it would be the following:
- Show up! Do it well, and so well that you show people you earn that pay raise, commission or promotion.
- If you are sloppy when making your bed, you probably project the same attitude towards other things in life (how you do ANYTHING is how you do EVERYTHING).
- Don’t get too comfortable; don’t settle for status quo when you know you can push the limits.
- Attention is power. Attention attracts people, opportunity and money. Don’t be afraid to put yourself out there (that’s why the lads write this blog).
Take this weekend to reflect on these points and write an action plan. Remember, you just need to improve yourself by 1% a day to become a better YOU!
