Over the past couple of months, I’ve had a number of people ask the same interesting question…
“How in the world have you found the time to write 8 books over just a few years?”
Now…writing a book (or books) may not be of interest to you, but none the less, the answer to that question applies to your life right now too!
In fact, the answer can help you achieve things you may never have thought possible:
1. There is power in a little pad.
2. Surround yourself with mentors that can help you, encourage you and participate in whatever it is you are seeking (for me writing books, it was Don Greeson, James Malinchak and Zan Monroe).
3. Once you write something down in your little pad (which should be every day), review it and then take action on what you learned!
As an example, here are just a few things friends and new acquaintances have shared with me in the last couple of weeks that I would not have remembered if I had not immediately written them down in my little pad…and…I need to find a way to apply the principles right away.
“Some people are like a blister…they show up after the work is done!” David White
“The early bird may get the worm, but more often than not, the second mouse gets the cheese (ie…be persistent and learn from others mistakes)!” Jason Donahey
“Most worthwhile things in life require a marathon…not a sprint!” Blaine Given
“What matters most is what lasts.”
“Crisis will remind us of what matters the most.”
I’ve got a bunch of little pads full of thoughts and principles just like these that I've collected over the years.
You should probably carry a little pad around in your pocket too…you might be amazed at the
miracles that will happen for you (even if you never choose to write a book)!
Smiles, have a GREAT week and Keep Building TRUST...Mark
