Money is not the root of all evil!
When people can help faster, better and more people? When you have more possibilities! These possibilities is easier to create or provide when you have money, neither you don't.
Let's really take a look, why a lot of people struggling in relationship discussing about money. Is it because they have them a lot. Or it's because they do not have them enough? I guess you know the answer!
Also, it's much easier to surprise people you love, having money then not! You can make their dreams to become true faster and it's quite important since a lot of us do not live 100 years.
Money is just a tool and same as knife - you can prepare a fantastic dinner with it or even kill somebody. It's just a tool in your hands, but it's important to have it. Imagine to prepare a fish or a great salad without using a knife. We feel frustrated even in case it's not enough sharped. Now imagine if you will need to make it by stones or hands... So, money, actually resolve lots of our problem and can make the life more memorable! Unfortunately, a lot of us hear from our family, mass media, teachers, friends bad or cruel stories about people, who have a lot of money and because of that we think money is "the root of all evil". But it's just because nobody really talks about people that make contribute to treating children from Malaria or other great examples of solving huge problems.
So, my personal lesson is - I accept money as possibility to make this world better in a faster way!
Plan everything you really want to achieve by SMART!
Usually I make my goals for a year by SMART, since i already convinced how practical and lucrative the tool is. For those who do not remember, SMART means you make your goals very Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, in Time!
But, i didn't formulate all my goals for 2017 by SMART and I can say, all of those I didn't achieved 100%. Why? I have been to self confident I know what I want. So here is my lesson- every time my brain is saying- "oh, I know it!"-, shut up and just apply the principle that works, don't let your brain to foolish you!
It was still a good experience to see that if I don't apply SMART to my goals I do not really succeed! So, a great learning point and improvement for successful 2018!
Don't think too much, otherwise you never take actions!
I have been lucky to experience a very interesting exercise during one of the trainings I attended in 2017 - where you have to break a finger thick arrow by vulnerable part of neck between the clavicles. It's more a moral exercise, but the interesting part of it is in the beginning I was super enthusiastic to make it! After 10 minutes of explanations what could happen during the exercise I started feel so insecure and even close to skip it!
So, I learned that the more I think about consequences my brain is doing a "really good" work by protecting me! But it's all that stop me from DOING! And my new approach to a lot of things as "5,4,3,2,1, do it" or it never happen!
What are the things you learned in 2017? Will be interesting to know what insights you had in outgoing year! Share it with us in cooments!
