When I worked on Wall Street I never understood why busy people wasted so much time.
Much of the day in fact gets slaughtered in things that have zero bearing on your success.
Just chopping things out.
And focusing on what truly matters, you can massively amplify your success in far less time.
Thinking is the same.
70,000 mostly negative redundant thoughts
Killing your seconds.
Killing any chance you have of living in a positive mindset.
Killing precious moments you could be focused on valuable things.
Killing your life.
Such is the plight of humanity.
The human condition the deadliest virus
On Wall Street you’d constantly hear people having the same conversations over and over again.
So, where do you think the market is headed?
What will happen in the economy?
Um, it’s pretty obvious you had zero clue when you asked me the same question yesterday…
And it’s pretty obvious no economist or crystal ball gazer has any clue any day…
So, why do we waste so much time thinking on these unknowables?
The terror of uncertainty
That’s why many of us get stuck “spending” (not investing) most seconds, most minutes, most hours, most days…
Thinking/worrying about things that kill your good feelings and great life.
That hellish computer we call a brain is constantly trying to solve for uncertainty.
Well, ultimately, because it’s a fear-infected machine, it’s trying to solve for the fear that uncertainty brings you.
So, minute in minute out, hour in hour out, day in day out, week in week out, year after year…
Many of us allow it to destroy our lives thinking about things we have absolutely zero information on.
How many seconds a day are you spending on the virus?
Thinking about the same things you thought yesterday?
Reading the latest not-fear-inducing “news.”
Buying into the latest predictions on where the virus is headed.
Or the markets.
Or the economy.
Fact is that two months ago none of those so-called experts had any clue that the virus would ravage our world.
The so-called financial experts had equal zero clue as they did ahead of the credit crisis that the world would fall off a cliff.
So why on God’s earth would we expect their or own brains have any clue where this is headed now?
So we can kill our precious lives
Thinking about all this stuff.
Getting sucked into the fear and uncertainty of your brain’s and most others around you.
Killing these precious seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks of your life.
Or we can do the best we can to focus on the ONLY things that matter right now.
The ONLY things you actually have any information on.
The ONLY 3 things you can control
Where are you putting your thoughts?
How are you choosing to feel?
What actions are you choosing to take?
All day every day these are the ONLY things you can control.
Whether it be for getting through this uncertain and fearful time in our world.
Or for all future success you will ever create.
In every single way these are the only three things that you control for living your best life.
btw, this is the entire point of the Ultimate Days System, to stop that brain killing your life, by every moment, every day unleashing your best thoughts, feelings, actions.
