Sometimes ago, I ask one of my friend, “who is the person that give you the most help in your personal success” ; He start to recall many great persons that have contribute their time and effort to his our mission and help him to achieve what you want. Some of your friend may criticize your action and create lot of stress in your life; but they too help you to add values in your success.
Out of so many success helpers in your life, do you know: who is the most important person that makes all these happen? It is of course – YOU. You are the one that decide who you want to work with, when you want to do it and how you want to do it. Other people might only giving you ideas and comment, but you are the one that making it happen. Other people can only comment on your weaknesses, but you are the one that decide whether you want to accept their comment or not. Other people can only stay with you few hours a day, but you are the one that accompany yourself 24 hours a day. In other words, you are the most important person in life that decides your success.
Sadly to say, many people invest money on their car, their house, their friends etc, but they forget to invest in themselves and develop their own “power mind”. Averagely, many people spend only a fraction of cost on their mind than their body. All of us like to have good food, beautiful clothes and shoes; but how many of us aspire to have beautiful heart, positive mindset and good habit? We tend to neglect our own head investment and focus so much on body investment. Even though our head is only 10% of our body weight, but it gives 100% impact to our daily life. Our mind determines our action, our planning, our desire and our needs.
There is a story of goose and the golden egg. The farmer is so concern of enjoying life and use all the golden egg to buy house, car and lifestyle. He forgets to look after the goose. He does not give good food to the goose. After few months, the goose gets sick and passes away. The moral of this story is that you need to invest in yourself and help to maintain the productivity and success.
Never forget to invest in your mind and attitude, because your mind is the major mover of your personal success; not your beautiful clothing, luxurious car or houses.
