- in Success
In the modern world, we are bombarded with information. Nonstop. Because of this, we need to develop the ability to set priorities, maintain focus, and continue to work towards goals over long periods of time.
The following simple formulas help me maintain clarity and stay balanced. Perhaps they will help you.
Formulas For Success
--Unhappy? Focus on your thoughts. Calm your mind. You can also pray or meditate.
--Want to be rich? Create equity and/or buy it. Equity = ownership of assets that produce profits. These can be your own businesses, fractional shares in a company (stock), or other assets such as real estate.
--Want to stay safe? Always wear your seat belt. Always wear a helmet when doing something dangerous. Avoid dangerous locations.
--Feeling stuck? Take action. Any action.
--The more nobly you live, the happier you will be. A big part of the noble life is choosing not to do things that degrade you and those around you. So Nobility = what you choose to do and what you choose not to do. Taking the high road = a happier and happier life.
--Greatest cultural problem of modern age = increasing narcissism. Narcissism = an excessive preoccupation with yourself. Self-obsession leads to relentless unhappiness, inability to be satisfied, self-pity, resentment, etc. So, of course focus on yourself. Yes. But focus on other things too. Such as God, creating great art, helping your family, building your career, or other goals.
--It is easier to spend little money than to make lots of money. A "low-overhead life" is also more tax efficient.
