People always complain that finding success is hard work and they don’t have time. I often ask these people what they do at night that makes them so busy. I’m sure you can come up with a list full of excuses right now. And I’m always surprised to see that there’s really nothing that holds them back. It’s the perception of their life style that makes them think they are too busy…
Now I do have to admit when you have kids, it can get very busy; Supper, homework, any after school activities, baths and putting the kids to bed, just to name a few…
But when the kids are off to bed, what do you do? And if you don’t have kids well you don’t have any excuse…
I sometimes look back at the days I didn’t have kids and I ask myself: “what the hell was I doing that was more important than finding success in my life?”
And the answer is…. wasting time watching TV! Now don’t get me wrong, I do watch television from time to time but I don’t spend 5 hours after work doing that! I’m all for winding down after a hard day at work but come on, that is just ridiculous…
Those who put the TV on when they get home from work and watch it until they go to bed are also those who complain that they can’t succeed in life. I know because I used to do that. And the sad part is that a lot of people do that!
Let me give you an example of how these types of people take action and don’t even realize it. And when I say “types of people” that used to include me… ( you can learn more about me and finding success on my site www.cheerstothegoodlife.com)
I remember when I used to watch TV a lot. I would spend hours changing the channels to find something good on TV. And since I did this, the battery would often die. I would hate this because I would have to get up from the couch, go downstairs, find some batteries, go back upstairs, take out the old batteries, put in the new batteries, walk back to the couch and sit down. Oh my god! Did you notice all the “Action” that I took! All of that for a remote control.
That’s ridiculous, the amount of time I wasted and the action I took for a useless “goal”!
Could you imagine if I took all that action towards my success instead of wasting it on a remote? Just imagine if I would have read a book or wrote down some goals that I would like to accomplish or search for different training programs I could take instead of spending my time looking for a “good” TV show.
I would have been better off for sure!
But what you need to realize, like I did, is to stop wasting your time watching TV and changing the batteries in your remote. And if you use that action and put it towards success, your life would change drastically!
So the next time you are ready to sit down and watch TV or worse, if you need to change those batteries in your remote, just stop and think to see if there’s something better you should do with your time in order to find success in your life.
