8 Easy Ways To Improve The World Today
Wouldn't you love to know some easy ways to Improve The World around you Today.
In the last session of the first day at Top Earner Academy Ray Higdon did a talk on How To Change The World that I thought was worth sharing here today.
I will tell you that most of these ways are principles for all of our life, not just our business life.
I've really never understood why people would say, well, you know that's just business nothing personal!
All life is personal and what we do in business certainly reflects who we are in life.
If you live by one standard in business and another one in your personal life then I highly recommend that you seriously re-evaluate your life principles.
My Mentor and Friends Ray & Jessica Higdon are the epitomai of what it is to have integrity, honesty and great ethics in both life and business, there is NO Difference.
Okay, that's all I have to say about that. Remember people want to work with people they Know, Like and TRUST!
8 Ways to Improve The World Today
1. Practice More Gratitude
Can you imagine what this world would be like if everyone lived their days with an attitude of gratitude?
See what I mean about being easy. I know some of you are thinking, Ron you just don't know what's going on in my life so it's easy for you to say.
Well, you are right I don't. Here's what I do know, that just doesn't matter.
You are not the first or only person that is going through what you are going through. You are here for a reason and YOU are Worthy.
You will be amazed at how your day and life will change the minute your attitude from “Woe is Me” to one of GRATITUDE! Just saying!
Start each day with an attitude of Gratitude and Thankfulness.
2. ILT (Invest, Learn, Teach)
This is another simple way to give back to the world. This is simply, Invest In your growth, Learn what you have invested in and then Teach others.
It's just that simple. It's the process of giving back.
You would be surprised how much you have to offer right now, today. Things that you have learned over your life, no matter how long you have been in this world.
I love one of Ray's quotes – “It's not the number of years you've been on this planet, it's whether or not you are still growing.”
Why is that important, because if you are still growing then you are still learning and you can still teach others.
Wow, what a powerful way to change and improve your world. Forgiveness is something that can change your life in some many ways.
I can tell you from experience that holding on to junk in your life is nothing but cancer.
Until you can learn to forgive and start the healing you will always have something holding you back.
I'm not a shrink or really have a lot of understanding in that area. What I am is 62 years old and have been through some incredible things in my life.
I have had to live through the pain and failure that comes from not forgiving and being able to move on and heal.
Here's my advice. FORGIVE, Just Do It. Is it going to be easy, not necessarily, but it will be worth it.
4. Get Uncomfortable
Once you understand that by getting uncomfortable you start to change and have more success in your life which in turn will help others and that's what it's all about.
If you don't get uncomfortable nothing is going to change in your life that I can guarantee.
Here's a simple rule, If it makes you uncomfortable then maybe it's something you need to do… not always but certainly needs more investigation.
5. Limit Negative Talk About and With Others
What can I say about this one? Just DON'T DO IT!
I would go one step further and say eliminate it all together.
There is absolutely NOTHING good that comes from negative talk and thoughts, especially when they are about others.
How can you possibly build your Network Marketing business if it's based on the negative, you can't!
Do we all do it from time to time, YES. Should we all work on eliminating, YES!
Your team will follow your lead just remember that.
6. Have Winning Habits
We all have habits in our lives good and bad. We can all change and create habits if we choose to.
Understanding what winning actions are and then making them into winning habits is the key.
Understanding what actions you need to take on a daily basis that is going to not only better your business but better your LIFE and those around you.
Having winning habits is vital to having a winning life!
7. Being Happy Is Better Than Being Right!
Wow, this is another great way to change and improve the world around you.
How many times in our lives are we set on being right and have made the comment it's not that I have to be right it's the principle of it.
Sometimes I will give it to you that is true and you do have to fight for the right.
Most of the time it's our ego and our need to be right and nothing more.
For me, I will choose to be happy every time. Now don't get me wrong I WILL NOT compromise my principle and my beliefs.
I will, on the other hand, evaluate each situation and make sure I'm not fighting a battle to be right because of my ego.
Be Happy and help others to do the same.
Here's a quote from the great movie “The American President” – “Oh, you only fight the fights you can win? You fight the fights that need fighting!”
It's good to fight the fights that need fighting as long as you understand that!
8. Use Serving Language
This is one all about mindset and how you talk to yourself and others.
Become a servant and giver instead of a taker. The next time you are with your team or in a meeting try thinking about what you can do to serve others that are there.
When you get up each morning try taking some time to plan out how you are going to serve others today.
The more we help others the more we are going to improve the world we live and work in.
So there they are the 8 easy ways you can Improve The World Today, but here's the final thing you need to do that will tie it all together.
MAKE A DECISION!
If you don't make a decision to take action then all of this is just words on the screen and nothing more.
Choose TODAY to make a Decision that will Improve The World and Change your life forever!
Start you day with gratitude, forgiveness and an attitude of servitude.
