This week we started Scroll V in The Greatest Salesman in the World by Og Mandino. Lots of great stuff in it.
Og teaches us in Scroll V to live in the present and make the most of today. We spend too much time worrying about what tomorrow or next week or month will bring, as well as dwelling too much on the past. We need to stop procrastinating and to make the most of us today. Each moment today is precious and should not be wasted. We are asked to live today as if it were it last, because that way we would not waste any time.
We watched a video by Shawn Achor. He told us that we need to be happy first because we can be more productive and successful. Most people have it backwards and think we need to be successful and wealthy first before they are wealthy, which is not the case with the studies done.
90% of our happiness is not affected by our exterior world, but how we perceive the world. It is also important to be grateful for things, and focus on the things we are grateful for each day, and do meditation as well.
If you follow what Shawn Achor teaches in that talk, you will see lots of things change in your life for the better.
