#1 Entrepreneurship and Financial Freedom
It’s hard to be a free man if you work for someone else or if you are in debt. Both are indirect forms of slavery. Keep your finances straight (there are loads of books on the topic) and start to mind your own business–even if it’s only creating a second stream of income, you’re ahead of the game.
#2 Health and Energy
Designing and building your life demands stamina and energy. Don’t fool yourself, your body has a lot to do with your results in life. From your eating habits to exercising, everything counts toward making sure you get the most out of and for yourself.
#3 Master Your Mind
Your mind is not always your best friend. It’s a meaning-producing machine that can turn you into a wimp or coward in a matter of seconds. Eighty percent of success in life comes from your psychology and how you talk to yourself. I have my doubts and worries, just like everybody else, but it’s important to develop a clear vision and become an expert on yourself so you can turn negative emotions into opportunities.
#4 Personal Responsibility
This is the key that unlocks all the doors of your life. Everything you do in life is directly linked to your level of personal responsibility. Ironically, this is the hardest to accept for 80 percent of people (understand now why only 20 percent truly live their life on their own terms?). It starts by making a firm decision that you won’t blame anyone or anything for where you are in life today and that you’re solely responsible for your results and your happiness. Scary concept at the beginning, but in reality, truly liberating.
If days are the bricks of your life, then resilience is the cement that hold them together and prevents the whole thing from collapsing. Resilience is the ability to recover quickly from illness, change, or misfortune. It’s something that we all have.
Anyway back to my game of golf…
