When you get down to it, there really are just these three essential tools, mindsets, behaviors, or whatever you want to call them. Hard work, stick-to-itiveness, and common sense. Being able to utilize these can definitely bring about change and abundance.
Every day I accomplish something. Somedays it’s really minimal, but most days there is a significant amount of hard work that I put into my chores, business, home, or whatever else needs done. My dad is the epitome of hard work. From a very young age, I knew that you had to work every day to get the things you wanted. My dad taught me skills that have come in handy many, many times. He gave me the lessons on hard work at an early age and I think that has been a key to my success. The harder the work, the more satisfaction with the end result.
Consistency is key. I get up at 5am almost every morning. During the hours that my family is asleep, I am able to get tasks checked off my list to give me space during their waking hours to be available for their needs. There are certain things that I do every day and certain things that I should do every day. Creating consistent behaviors brings you things like better health, more time freedom, more money, stronger relationships, and a greater belief in yourself because you are getting things done and you are sticking to it day in and day out.
The fleeting sense, the sense that should be on the endangered lists, the sense that many, many people are loosing. This isn’t exactly their fault. Unfortunately we live in a society where your day to day information is narrated by people with little to no knowledge of your lifestyle, your physical abilities, your mental capacity, or anything that has to do with YOU. The ability to make decisions based on what a person wants or needs has been slowly shifted to the control of those who shouldn’t be making decisions for others, let alone themselves sometimes. Because we are being misdirected, our ability to make our OWN decisions, or use common sense, is becoming extinct.
The first thing I think of when it comes to common sense are the commercials I see on TV for these magical medications and prescriptions, the cure-all advertisements. “Hundreds of doctors recommend taking XYZ for your problems! Blah, blah, blah….side effects may include a million different things, including the thing you are trying to heal, and could cause excruciating pain and/or death.” Who in their right mind would take such a thing?! People who have lost their ability to use common sense.
This doesn’t happen with just prescriptions, it’s all around us. If you watch any media, newscasts, or social media, you are exposed to “opinions” (manipulations) about different subjects and your common sense begins to decline.
I exercise my common sense and my right to choose daily. It drives my sister crazy because I make choices that do not go with the flow or fit in. I use my common sense to make the good choices for my mind, body, and spirit. I work hard to make sure those choices happen as often as possible. And I try to be as consistent as possible.
I work hard for what I desire. I maintain a level of action and forward movement as consistently as is possible. I use my God given physical and psychological talents to choose what energizes me and I avoid following the masses because sometimes, the M is silent.
Hard work, stick-to-itiveness, and common sense.
