Life is Not a Sprint

Positive Thinking Tip: Be anxiously engaged in a good cause, but keep the right pace for longevity. Life is not a sprint, it’s a marathon.

Have you ever been accused of working too hard or running too fast?

Fast can be good, but in business and in life, too fast can be bad. Do you know the difference?

I sat with one of my business mentors recently, having hit a brick wall in my own world, even with all I’ve learned and shared in my books. The truth is, I was struggling to see what I was supposed to do next.

He knew just what the problem was: I had a blind spot – and he showed it to me.

I was ASTOUNDED.

(Don’t you LOVE those epiphany moments?)

Recognizing it and addressing it has already caused a significant and positive shift in my business:

  1. I feel more in CONTROL of my time
  2. I feel LESS overwhelmed
  3. I have more CHOICE in how I spend my time
  4. I have more ORDER in my environment
  5. My family relationships are better than ever
  6. I’m more at peace than I’ve been in the last 10 years – and I thought I was at a pretty good level of peace before!

If you enjoyed Jackrabbit Factor, Hidden Treasures, or Portal to Genius, then you’ll LOVE his Zig Zag Principle. In fact, I wish I had understood it before writing my books, because…

It provides a paradigm shift for those who run too fast and try too hard. (I confess… I needed it more than anyone.)

I thought I had learned my lesson before about avoiding burnout, but what I learned from Rich was the extra reminder that I needed.

The good news is that he’s finally releasing his phenomenal book: The Zigzag Principle: The Goal-Setting Strategy That Will Revolutionize Your Business and Your Life. It’s being published by McGraw-Hill, and I’m certain it will be a bestseller.

Find out when it’s actually BETTER to move AWAY from the goal

I invite you – I encourage you to order this book and read it so you can increase your success and happiness in your business and personal life.

Like I mentioned, this book is a great read – but it’s more than that, it will give you the principles and tools to set yourself up for…

Quicker Profitability and Greater Longevity

Here are my “official” comments on the book:

“The Zigzag Principle delivers the epiphany of the decade for business owners. These strategies are non-intuitive, but proven to be solid and dependable, which is why this is such an important work. Not only will you profit faster than you thought possible, you’ll also enjoy greater balance and fulfillment in the process.” Leslie Householder, Award-winning bestselling author of The Jackrabbit Factor: Portal to Genius.

Too much Information?

positive thinking tip: Don’t be overwhelmed by Too much good information. stay Focused on your goal, and the information you really need will naturally show up when you’re ready for it.

Do you ever feel overloaded with too many options, too much information, too many people telling you what to do to succeed?

You’re not alone. Here’s an email I received, and my reply on the matter.

Linda said:

I don’t know if you will actually answer this, but I am getting frustrated because I am getting INUNDATED with various “I have the secret YOU need to be successful in life” emails / offers / programs / gimmes!

I certainly can’t do them all simultaneously, and while they may all be worthwhile, it seems to me there is a lot of redundancy. I am STILL trying to work my way through your materials, and I don’t know that I need to get something ELSE while I still have not finished what I HAVE!

…I feel like I am spinning my wheels with a “Lo here” and a “Lo there” … like the poor guy trying to catch the rabbit in the same way the fox / wolf / whatever did! Any words of wisdom you could share would be appreciated. Thanks! Linda

My response to Linda (with a few more little notes):

Breathe, Linda, breathe. 🙂

There’s a lot of noise out there, and you can trust that the RIGHT next step will be there when you’re ready for IT. Just because it’s good, it doesn’t mean you have to jump on it immediately. It will be there again when you’re ready for it, if it really is the right thing for you to do.

I don’t open all my soliciting emails. I only open them if I’m currently seeking an answer to a burning question, and only if the email that shows up seems like it might have the answer to THAT question.

I get information overload if I look at all of them. Sometimes I have to prioritize and say, “I just don’t have the mental bandwidth to wrap my brain around ANYthing else right now” – and then I go forward – at peace taking things at my own pace, knowing that I do not have to run faster than I have mental, emotional, or physical strength.

When the student is ready, the teacher appears. If too many teachers appear, get clarity on your overall objective. Once that is back in focus, the right ones will be obvious – you’ll know it in your gut – and the wrong ones in that moment will no longer have a magnetic pull on you.
