What do you spend your time on? What do you spend your money on?
You are what you do everyday. You are what you spend most money on.
If you spend your time watching TV and spend most of your money on gadgets like cars or Iphones you will be a lazy slob with too many loans. If you spend your time at the gym and your money on healthy, high-quality food you will be an athlete or bodybuilder. If you spend your time studying for a test and your money on courses you will be a straight A student.
Look at how you spend your time and money and you will notice that it is pretty obvious if you are going to succeed or not. You can only be an athlete if you spend time practicing your sports. You can only be a famous writer if you write often and learn from other writers.
How much time do you spend on improving yourself? How many books have you read about how to get to your goal? How many new skills have you developed? Have you done enough to get where you want to be? Or do you just dream of becoming the greatest man there ever was without actually doing anything?
Most people do not spend their time and money wisely. They return from school or work and start do distract themselves instead of getting better. The next day they are not better than the day before. And after ten years they cry about feeling empty and depressed. Pathetic, isn´t it?
Spending money and time on things that will not help you develop is just dumb. Here is the best way a superhero like you should spend your resources:
Invest in yourself.
Buy healthy food, buy books to inspire and teach you valuable skills, buy anything that will make you more money in the long run.
And it is not enough to just do it sporadically. You need to do something everyday to get better. Even tiny steps are better than standing still. Every single day is a chance to get closer to success. Even if you never get where you want to be, you can at least try. Trying and failing is better than never trying and never failing.
We are only alive if we bruise. We are only alive if we feel pain.
Do you want to turn into a zombie with no energy, no real goals and no life? Or do you want to crush your goals so you can set even higher goals?
If you truly are a superhero, it should be the latter. You are like a diamond. You can unveil amazing things inside of you, but you have to put in the work of discovering them first.
Think about your idol or literally any successful person. This person has 24 hours in their day just like you. But what did this successful person do what you did not? And what do YOU need to do to get where they are?
You need to work effectively towards your goals. Don´t sweat the small stuff if you could be working on the big stuff instead. Your life is filled with unnecessary distractions. Get rid of them if you can, and if you can´t try to ignore them.
Take a walk and think about what you actually need to do to accomplish your goals. And then do only that. Only that and nothing else. Spend your time and your money on the things that really count. Everything else can be dealt with later.
How do you spend your time right now to get successful? How are you investing in yourself today?
How do you spend your time? How do you spend your money? And does it help you to reach your goals?
