Prioritise what motivates you

I am not the biggest reader but I make a point of reading a business or motivation book monthly. What I found out and picked up a few tips from highly accomplished people like Richard Branson , Warren Buffet , Bill Gates etc , and there is a few things that these Entreprenuer do the same . Here are is one key strategies that a minority of them us .

Prioritise what motivates and give energy to-you:

We all would love to though to be able to take recharging weekend trips, that’s not realistic. However there are plenty of ways to take a break from your weekday routine that don’t involve hopping on a plane, boat or ship 😉 . This could involve everything from having a leisurely Saturday morning breakfast, to sitting reading book , having a drink with friends , there are many ways to relax .

Bill Gates likes to and down on his weekends. “Playing bridge is a pretty old-fashioned thing in a way that I really like,” he said in a Reddit AM session in 2014. “I was watching my daughter ride horses this weekend and that is also a bit old fashioned but fun. I do the dishes every night — other people volunteer, but I like the way I do it.”

Richard Branson takes a slightly more active approach: We read this in The Telegraph that he prefers to spend his Sundays doing more physical things, like paddleboarding, boat racing, and rock jumping.

When you around people for nearly 16+ hours a day , spending time also is something I do really enjoy spending time alone . This can be energising, great time to reflect and meditate on what is important to oneself , looking and add to the goals . A study frond from Harvard’s found that people who spent 15 minutes reflecting at the end of the day had higher levels of performance than their colleagues who did not take the time to reflect on a daily basis.

One key thing I try and do as much as I can , spending time as much as with family , partners, or friends is important, but not necessarily something they have time for Monday through Friday. The weekend is the perfect time to prioritise connecting with your loved one. Ones family is one of the greatest motivation to keep one going during the crazy week and any difficulty that might pop up .

Growth comes from conquering the challenges

Conquering challenges

How true is this statement ? True Growth only comes from :pain, difficulty, transitions, heartbreak, and losses . What one finds is growth doesn’t come from stagnation.. growth comes from change , and the ability to adapt or pre empt them.

Change comes from within… and it comes from you , there no magic pill !

Growth happens when you let it.. when you accept, when you want it and are committed to carry out change .

“It’s impossible.” said pride.

“It’s risky.” said experience.

“It’s pointless.” said reason.

“Give it a try.” whispered the heart.”

Take the chance. Life has so many surprises.. when will I sleep next? will my card get declined if i book that ticket, is this all worth it? Will I get that job? Will my business succeed? Will I ever get married? You don’t always need a plan.. sometimes you just need to breathe, trust, let go, and see what happens.

Be open to change.

Be open to self-growth & it will come.

Awaken the Lion

I remember when I was 16 thinking , Why haven’t you started to chase your goals or pursue the life you wish?⁣
⁣Mixtures answers came to mind , Personally I saw it as majority of the time it’s because we worry about what our friends and family will think of them, I decided life’s to short to think like that .

Recently people getting worried about what the social media will say about them .

Now I simply look at things ,

Does this help achieving the goals ?⁣

Or are you just following the herd and doing what society expects ?


Never forget this⁣

You’re a lion.⁣

And a lion never concerns him or herself with the opinions of sheep,
One should always remind ourself of :

-conviction in your own beliefs
-going with your instincts
-sticking to your opinion

One has to remember MASSIVE goals are important but the steps taken to achieve those goals are within everyone’s reach- you just need to learn how.

Rule nunber 1 : F#ck what people think

One thing that I have realised in life is that the me. who wants to lead the opera must have to turn their backs on their audience.

If everyone likes you, then you have a serious problem, I’m glad my first mentor thought me this .

What I found that being a nice person will never ever do you any good in the long run. As people you are spending your energy and your time will take take take and will end up using you as a foot mat — ignoring and insulting you.

Some things I emphasis to myself :

Be yourself.
One fo The worst mistake one can make in your life is change yourself to fit in with another person’s expectations of you and this is in business , friend and family .

Take control

You only drive your own success , take control
People always say “ you only live once but this isn’t true , you die once you live every day ! “

Keep your circle small
Less drama and less negativity has such a huge impact on your life .
Be humble , show respect but be in control .

It’s okay if people hate you, that’s their choice not yours .
Let them hate. But the key thing here is to ensure that you focus on you and not others negative

Advice on money : Not what you earn it what you keep !

Advice I learned about $$

Let’s say you make $10,000 a month.

That’s only $120k a Year.

Let’s put 30% aside for Taxes.

That leaves you with $84,000.

Now let’s say you’re feeling RICH ‘cause you’re a 6 figure earner now, right?

So you go and buy yourself a Penthouse condo for $5,000 a month.

That’s $60,000 a Year.

Leaving you with $24,000 left.

But wait.

You’re Rich.

So you GOTTA get yourself a nice ass whip.

A Benz or a Lambo Truck. Something lit.

Let’s say that’s $500/month with good Credit plus throw in another $300 a month for insurance.

$800/Month for your whip.

That’s almost $10,000 a Year.

Leaving you with $14,000 remaining.

Throw in Food. Entertainment. Travels & Other bills such as Phone. Internet. Etc etc etc.

That’s gonna leave you with absolutely no savings left at the end of the year whatsoever.

So Moral of the Story?

It doesn’t matter how much Money you make.

KEEPING your money is key.

Having your money work for you is key

Understanding that trading time for money is not the answer

Understanding that consumerism is not the answer

Understanding that losing the immediate gratification mindset will work immensely in your favor

Don’t live life to impress people on Social Media.

Stack your bread and act broke until you’re ACTUALLY Rich.

THEN go treat yourself if you want to.

Take care of the people who’ve been working with you and supporting you from the beginning.

We all had it where people come by take advantage , use or use one self , those are lessons we learn and that’s important .

True loyalty can’t be bought or found anywhere.

You cannot hang out with negative people and expect to live a positive life.

We all  have  friends or colleagues who are negative? Then , you know they aren’t the most enjoyable people to be around , a problem for every situation . Negative people are  real downers in any conversation and situation. No matter what you say, they have a way of spinning things in a negative direction. Some negative people can be so negative that it feels draining just being around them , negetivity places a blanket over you .

Break free and enjoy a positive life .

IMF tells  Japan needs to bring back Abenomics – 

Japan is on the receiving end of a warning from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) about the risk of slow growth, stagflation and a new round of turmoil in financial markets. The IMF has urged Japan to “reload” its Abenomics reforms to prevent this from happening.  Currently the Bank of Japan  quantive easing ¥80 trillion ($712 billion)  the same as the  GDP of the Netherlands , an extra 10 Trillion  in my option would weaken the yen by 5/7% and the Nikkei rise by 9/11%…

According to the Financial Times, IMF economists have said that Japan is seeing a modest recovery at the moment and that there would be annual growth of 0.8% by the end of the year, followed by 1.2% in 2016. However, the economy is fragile, the report states. 

This is because imperative structural reforms required to bring the economy out of its slow growth and back on track have stalled and it comes at a time when Japan’s public debts were expected to hit 250% of GDP over the next five years. 

The Bank of Japan has also been told that it needs to be ready to ease monetary policy further and do a better job of communicating its intentions to markets as inflation – which they forecast would hit 0.7% this year – continued to rise more slowly than expected towards the central bank’s 2% target. 

Overall the IMF offered a sobering assessment of Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s efforts to revive the Japanese economy, arguing that his reforms were failing to deliver as promised. 

  

10,000 steps a day

  
“I don’t have dreams . I have goals . Now it’s on to the next one ” Harvey Specter 

To approach my health goals I broke it down to  smaller goals and then monitored the data .

I had a very simple approach by :

  • Increasing activity 
  • Monitor activity 

As mentioned in previous post I use Jawbone UP 2 to monitor my activity , sleep and food nutrients . 

I found an article on the NHS in the UK that the average person walks around. 3,000- 4,000 steps a day ! The article talks about how increasing steps has a mulitple health benefits NHS – The 10,000 steps challenge . So I thought why not ” in for a penny in for a pound ” ( loose pounds that is 😉  )  so every day 10,000 steps  , it became very easy after time to achieve this amount on a daily bases . 

When I saw the effect I started to increase my activity  by using ellipitacal machines at Tokyo American Club . I say easy what I mean  when you achieved it , you notice the numbers are not so big . So then I started hitting 15k , 20k ,30k didn’t seam that daunting .  It became a habit . Willpower is like any muscle in th body it need to be trained :

Few tips I found :

  • Don’t miss two days in a row , we all slip up but don’t slip up two days as that’s starting to form a bad habit . 
  • Habits are formed by repeating certain task over and over , so take it at your pace .
  • Cut your habit down into chunks .

It’s Monday don’t forget to be awesome
