“Success is liking yourself, liking what you do, and liking how you do it” – Maya Angelou
If there’s something you want in life, then you should do all you can in order to get it. So, waste no second when you’re looking towards a future that will define who you are and what you do. It can be a monumental task to handle, but for me, it gets easier when you’re feeling great all the time. There’s nothing else to it. You just need to feel great in order to make things happen.
For that reason, I would like to show you five suggestions that can help you feel great every day so you can build a business that’s productive and sustainable.
1. Don’t think about work too much
What a twist! Of course, how can you be productive if you’re not working hard? It just doesn’t add up. Then again, working too hard has its side effects.
Chasing greater wealth and success means that you have to sacrifice certain things in life so you can reach them. This isn’t the right way to do it. Working hard has its rewards, but to really savor every minute working, you need to loosen up. In other words, rest when you are feeling tired. Do something else if you’re feeling less enthusiastic about working. If you spend a long time working on the things you want, then you will grow tired of working altogether.
By all means, work hard, but leave some time for yourself. Don’t let work control your life. Instead, you should be the master of your work.
2. Don’t feel jealous of other people’s accomplishments
Competition is great as long as it enables you to become a better person. It becomes a problem when you begin to feel jealous of the success that other people have. When we let jealousy take control of our reasoning, we are only making ourselves feel miserable every day. Instead of using competition in a more positive way, we say things like “I’m not better enough” or “I wish my competitor won’t get to taste great success before I do.”
Jealousy only eats up precious time, which you could have used to improve your skills or acquire more knowledge instead. So, if you want to start feeling great, don’t let the successes of other people intimidate. Instead, learn from them and never miss a chance to develop your own life. I’m sure spending time nurturing yourself will definitely help you reach your own goals
3. Start your day right, and end it right
The things you do in the morning will define your outlook for the rest of the day. You know you are starting your day right when you wake up feeling great, have breakfast, get a relaxing shower, and put on some nice clothes. Your morning rituals give you a reason to expect positive things. It gives you the confidence to take on whatever life throws at you. You will never feel anxious when you know you have started your day on the right path.
You will need to end your day on a positive note as well. When you come home after work, you are basically free to do whatever you want as long as it makes you feel relaxed and less stressed out. I would usually end my day by drinking a glass of wine and reflect the things that transpired. What did I do today? How did I do it? What challenges did I encounter? How was I able to overcome these challenges?
Asking these questions can help me in self-assessment, which is valuable to my growth and development in multifamily investing. When I get to uncover more of what I did, I will have a reason to look forward to the next day, where I get to apply my previous learnings and see if I am growing stronger as a result. This actually helps in feeling great about myself and what I do.
