6 Easy-to-Steal Rituals of Extremely Successful People

6 Easy-to-Steal Rituals of Extremely Successful People

6 Easy-to-Steal Rituals of Extremely Successful People

1.  Do the work… practice, practice, practice your craft!

Sure you can be good with a little effort.  You can be really good with a little more effort.  But you can’t be great, at anything, unless you put in an incredible amount of focused effort for a set amount of time every day.  It’s as simple as that.  Scratch the surface of any successful person with incredible skills and you’ll find someone who has put thousands of hours of effort into developing those skills.  There are no shortcuts in life.  There are no overnight successes.  Almost everyone has heard about the 10,000 hours principle, which states that ittakes roughly 10,000 hours to completely master a complex skill, yet despite sound evidence, so few follow it… except extremely successful people of course.

Whatever you decide to do, do it well.  Do it so well that when others see you do it, they enjoy it so much that they want to come back and see you do it again… and they also want to bring their friends along so they can show them how incredible you are at doing what you do.

2.  Build trust by standing behind every one of your promises.

If you say you’re going to do something, DO IT!  If you say you’re going to be somewhere, BE THERE!  If you say you feel something, MEAN IT!  If you can’t, won’t, and don’t, then DON’T LIE.  It’s always better to tell people the truth up front.  Don’t play games with people’s heads and hearts.  Don’t tell half-truths and expect people to trust you when the full truth comes out; half-truths are no better than lies.

Regardless of the business you’re in – selling products to consumers, or selling hours for dollars – the only question you have to ask yourself is:  “Do they trust me enough to believe what I’m promising to deliver?”  Without this trust, you have zero, zilch, nada.  If your target market knows you and they’re still not buying what you’re offering, they simply don’t trust you as much as you would hope.  Earn their trust, and the rest of the puzzle pieces will be easy to arrange. (Read The Impact Equation.)

3.  Focus more on less.

Having too many choices interferes with decision-making.  Here in the 21st century, where information moves at the speed of light and opportunities for innovation seem endless, we have an abundant array of choices when it comes to designing our lives and careers.  But sadly, an abundance of choice often leads to indecision, confusion, and inaction.

Several business and marketing studies have shown that the more product choices a consumer is faced with, the less products they typically buy.  After all, narrowing down the best product from a pool of three choices is certainly a lot easier than narrowing down the best product from a pool of three hundred.  If the purchasing decision is tough to make, most people will just give up.

So if you’re selling a product line, keep it simple.  And if you’re trying to make a decision about something in your life, don’t waste all your time evaluating every last detail of every possible option.  Choose something you think will work and give it a shot.  If it doesn’t work out, choose something else and keep pressing forward.  Focus more on less, and do your very best.

GOLD UPDATE

GOLD UPDATE

Gold is higher again today as the FOMC commences their two-day meeting. The market began the week quite short and rather oversold, so it’s not surprising to see some position squaring going into the policy statement.
While the Fed is widely expected to hold steady on policy, there remains some uncertainty as to the likely tenor of the statement. Some analysts are expecting hints from the Fed that ‘lift-off’ will come sooner rather than later: Will they or won’t they remove the assurance that rates will be kept near 0% for a “considerable time”?

I think there is enough uncertainty about the true health of the U.S. economy that the dovish-leaning FOMC will remain cautious with respect to any overt shift in guidance. I’d look instead for some tweaking of the language to suggest slightly more optimism.

As I alluded to yesterday, I doubt the Fed is too keen on offering additional support to the dollar. The greenback is up nearly 7% over the last four-moths. After all, if goosing inflation and taking slack out of the labor market are your objectives, a strong currency is not the solution.

In fact, to a monetarist, those goals can best be achieved by doing the exact opposite; weakening the currency. Unfortunately, the monetarists at the ECB and BoJ are just doing that better right now than those at the Fed.

This gives the appearance of dollar strength, but in reality the recent gains in the greenback are more a function of euro and yen weakness. When you wield the hammer of monetary policy, every problem looks like a nail. Bang it down.

Let Me Tell You What’s Happening with Gold

MONEY AND MARKETS: INVESTING INSIGHTS

Let Me Tell You What’s Happening with Gold

With gold now moving lower and breaking critical support at the $1,262 level, let me tell you exactly what’s happening:

First, the timeframe for a major low in gold runs until the end of January.

And now that it’s broken that $1,262 level, we are likely to see gold fall below the June low at $1,178, and then below $1,100. I suspect the final low will be somewhere between $990 and $1,035.

Second, the action we are seeing in gold of late is part and parcel of a major bottoming process. It’s swinging wildly. So are silver, platinum and palladium.

 

xxxxx
Don’t let impatience or frustration cause you to take your eye off the prize.

 

That volatility is important. Why? Because important bottoms in any market take time to develop. Unlike important tops, which occur suddenly, important bottoms are tricky.

Important bottoms are characterized by:

  • Increasing volatility
  • False breakouts
  • Sharp moves lower
  • Wild swings overall, causing traders and investors to become impatient, frustrated, even hopeless

The key during this very important time period: Don’t let impatience or frustration cause you to take your eye off the prize. That’s what the market wants you to do.

 

But if you fall prey to the market’s antics at this time, when a major bottom is being formed, you will not be one of those who rides the next bull leg higher to glory.

Keep in mind that at important tops, a market will always do its best to trap you near the highs and make it hard for you to get out …

While at important market bottoms, a market will do everything in its power to prevent you from getting on board.

So, though gold has broken the $1,262 level, sharp rallies are still possible within the confines of a trend that should find gold headed lower into January.

Third, the latest data from my cycle studies support the wild action we are seeing and the bottoming process.

More specifically, as you can see from the chart below of the long-term daily cycles, gold should be heading lower into January.

But look at the long-term weekly cycles for gold on this next chart.

This type of formation — where the daily cycles are bearish but the weekly cycles are bullish — is not unusual at important turning points.

It’s what causes wild swings, confusion in the market place — and yet, it’s part and parcel of the bottoming process.

It’s the market’s way of throwing as many curveballs at you as possible — to shake you out of the market — so only the savviest, most disciplined investors can profit from the next leg up.

One more thing about gold and the bottoming process. Here are my year-end momentum and trading ranges to monitor for gold …

Gold’s 2014 momentum range: $1,948.10 — $1,338.20

Gold’s 2014 trend range: $1,268.30 — $852.60

If you’ve been watching gold closely, you can see how accurate those ranges are. Gold rallied above the $1,338.20 level — the bottom of the 2014 momentum range — in late October, but then suddenly dropped right back below it.

This is critical. It is telling you that the momentum in gold remains negative, with a bearish bias heading into year-end.

And now, gold has fallen below the top of the 2014 trend range at $1,268.30. This tells you that the daily cycles are now overpowering the weekly cycles, setting up gold for a January 2014 low, at much lower prices.

All of this is also why I urge you to pay very close attention to the gold market now … to everything I write and send you … and be ready to act on a moment’s notice.

Gold is reaching its most important inflexion point since its major bottom back in 1999. And if you let the wild action throw you off course, you will miss the next big leg up that will take gold to well over $5,000 an ounce.

Be patient, disciplined and wait for my signals. If you can do that, you stand to make more money in gold over the next three years than you ever dreamed possible.

Best wishes,

Larry

Gold Defensive As Dollar Gets Bested in Currency War

Gold Defensive As Dollar Gets Bested in Currency War

usagoldcoins

by Peter A. Grant

Gold extended to the downside, eking out a new three-month low. However, short-term support at 1240.20 continues to contain the downside thus far.

The dollar remains on the defensive in the currency war as other countries are just being more aggressive in trying to debase their currencies. The dollar index remains elevated near fourteen-month highs amid heightened expectations that the ECB and BoJ may ease further keeps the euro and yen on the ropes.

The Swiss National Bank got back into the act today by warning that they are prepared to implement “other measures necessary” to enforce the 1.20 floor for the EUR-CHF rate. There was a distinct emphasis on negative interest rates and EUR-CHF dutifully popped back above 1.21.

Dow Jones reports that the BoJ may have bought short-term JGBs with negative yields on Tuesday. This obviously goes against the most basic tenets of investing; not that the BoJ needs to concern itself with such matters. It’s stated goal is to shake the savings out of the Japanese people.

Of course the Japanese people probably recognize the folly of BoJ policy and may well continue saving in anticipation the fallout from said policy. If Japanese savers don’t cooperate by borrowing and spending, what might be the policymakers’ next move? I shudder to think…

Interestingly, former Fed chair Alan Greenspan told an insurance industry meeting yesterday that “the only way the economy can grow is to save.” This is the same guy who first drove U.S. interest rates toward the zero-bound with the intention of discouraging savings as a means to reinvigorating a flagging economy.

Greenspan also said the insurance industry “is the mechanism by which you’re converting consumption into savings.” So, he likely was blowing a little sunshine up the dress of the industry that was paying him to be a keynote speaker. I sincerely doubt he’s had such a change of heart.

But even if he has, it may be too late. We’ve borrowed our prosperity from the future for so long, that the future may not have much more to give. If we reverse course now and start to save for that future, all-hell is going to break loose in the present.

While the algorithms may say sell gold when the dollar is rising, prudent investors should take advantage of the lower price — courtesy of the paper market — to stock-up on physical metal. Because, Greenspan’s recent comments not-withstanding, the central banks of the world are still determined to keep rates low (and even negative) in an ongoing effort to debase currency. Converting a portion of one’s savings in those currencies to gold makes perfect sense in the context of wealth preservation.

10 Habits You Must Quit to Be Happy

10 Habits You Must Quit to Be Happy

10 Habits You Must Quit to Be Happy

 

When you quit doing the wrong things, you make more room for the things that make you happy.  So starting today…

final 5 revealed…. POST WRITTEN BY: ANGEL CHERNOFF

6.  Quit criticizing others.

The negativity you bleed out toward others will gradually cripple your own happiness.  When you truly feel comfortable with your own imperfections, you won’t feel threatened or offended by the imperfections you see in other people.

So stop worrying about the flaws you see in everyone else, and focus on yourself.  Let the constant growth and improvement in your own life keep you so busy that you have no time left to criticize others.

7.  Quit running from your problems and fears.

Trust me, if everyone threw their problems in a pile for you to see, you would grab yours back.  Tackle your problems and fears swiftly, don’t run away from them.  The best solution is to face them head on no matter how powerful they may seem.

Fears, in particularly, stop you from taking chances and making decisions.  They keep you confined to just the small space where you feel completely comfortable.  But your life’s story is simply the culmination of many small, unique experiences, many of which require you to stretch your comfort zone.  Letting your fears and worries control you is not ‘living,’ it’s merely existing.

Bottom line:  Either you own your problems and fears, or they will ultimately own you.

8.  Quit living in another time and place.

Some people spend their entire lives trying to live in another time and place.  They lament about what has been, what they could have done, or what might become.  However, the past is gone, and the future doesn’t exist.  No matter how much time we spend thinking and lamenting about either, it doesn’t change anything.

One of life’s sharpest paradoxes is that our brightest future hinges on our ability to pay attention to what we’re doing right now, today.

We need to live more in the moment.  Living in the moment requires active, open, intentional awareness on the present.  Don’t fantasize about being on vacation while at work, and don’t worry about the work piling up on your desk when you’re on vacation.  Live for now.  Notice the beauty unfolding around you.

9.  Quit trying to be someone you’re not.

One of the greatest challenges in life is being yourself in a world that’s trying to make you like everyone else.  Someone will always be prettier, someone will always be smarter, someone will always be younger, but they will never be you.  Don’t change so people will like you.  Be yourself and the right people will love you, and you’ll love yourself more too.  The Road Less Traveled.

10.  Quit being ungrateful.

Not all the puzzle pieces of life will seem to fit together at first, but in time you’ll realize they do, perfectly.  So thank the things that didn’t work out, because they just made room for the things that will.  And thank the ones who walked away from you, because they just made room for the ones who won’t.

No matter how good or bad you have it, wake up each day thankful for your life.  Someone somewhere else is desperately fighting for theirs.  Instead of thinking about what you’re missing, try thinking about what you have that everyone else is missing.

First 5 revealed…. POST WRITTEN BY: ANGEL CHERNOFF

1.  Quit procrastinating on your goals.

Some people dream of success while others wake up and work hard at it.  Action and change are often resisted when they’re needed most.  Get a hold of yourself and have discipline.  Putting something off instantly makes it harder and scarier.  What we don’t start today won’t be finished by tomorrow.  And there’s nothing more stressful than the perpetual lingering of an unfinished task.

The secret to getting ahead is simply getting started.  Starting, all by itself, is usually sufficient to build enough momentum to keep the ball rolling.  So forget about the finish line and just concentrate on taking your first step.  Say to yourself, “I choose to start this task with a small, imperfect step.”  All those small steps will add up and you’ll actually get to see changes fairly quickly.

2.  Quit blaming others and making excuses.

Stop blaming others for what you have or don’t have, or for what you feel or don’t feel.  When you blame others for what you’re going through, you deny responsibility and perpetuate the problem.  Stop giving your power away andstart taking responsibility for your life.  Blaming is just another sorry excuse, and making excuses is the first step towards failure; you and only you are responsible for your life choices and decisions.

3.  Quit trying to avoid change.

If nothing ever changed there would be no sunrise the next morning.  Most of us are comfortable where we are even though the whole universe is constantly changing around us.  Learning to accept this is vital to our happiness and general success.  Because only when we change, do we grow, and begin to see a world we never knew was possible.

And don’t forget, however good or bad a situation is now, it will change.  That’s the one thing you can count on.  So embrace it, and realize that change happens for a reason.  It won’t always be easy or obvious at first, but in the end it will be worth it.

4.  Quit trying to control the uncontrollable.

If you try to control everything, and then worry about the things you can’t control, you are setting yourself up for a lifetime of frustration and misery.

Some forces are out of your control, but you can control how you react to things.  Everyone’s life has positive and negative aspects – whether you’re happy or not depends greatly on which aspects you focus on.  The best thing you can do is to let go of what you can’t control, and invest your energy in the things you can – like your attitude.

5.  Quit talking down to yourself.

Nothing will bring you down quicker than berating yourself.  The mind is a superb instrument if used right, but when used incorrectly, it becomes very destructive.  Be aware of your mental self-talk.  We all talk silently to ourselves in our heads, but we aren’t always conscious of what we’re saying or how it’s affecting us.

As Henry Ford once stated, “Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t, you’re right.”  One of the major causes of why we fail is due to self-doubt and negative self-talk.  The way to overcome negative thoughts and destructive emotions is to develop opposing, positive emotions that are stronger and more powerful.  Listen to your self-talk and replace negative thoughts with positive ones, over time you will change the trajectory of your life.

12 Things Happy People Do Differently

12 Things Happy People Do Differently

12 Things Happy People Do Differently

by Jacob Sokol of Sensophy

FINAL  4 revealed

9.Savor life’s joys. – Deep happiness cannot exist without slowing down to enjoy the joy.  It’s easy in a world of wild stimuli and omnipresent movement to forget to embrace life’s enjoyable experiences.  When we neglect to appreciate, we rob the moment of its magic.  It’s the simple things in life that can be the most rewarding if we remember to fully experience them.

 

10.Commit to your goals. – Being wholeheartedly dedicated to doing something comes fully-equipped with an ineffable force.  Magical things start happening when we commit ourselves to doing whatever it takes to get somewhere.  When you’re fully committed to doing something, you have no choice but to do that thing.  Counter-intuitively, having no option – where you can’t change your mind – subconsciously makes humans happier because they know part of their purpose.

 

11.Practice spirituality. – When we practice spirituality or religion, we recognize that life is bigger than us.  We surrender the silly idea that we are the mightiest thing ever.  It enables us to connect to the source of all creation and embrace a connectedness with everything that exists.  Some of the most accomplished people I know feel that they’re here doing work they’re “called to do.”

 

12.Take care of your body. – Taking care of your body is crucial to being the happiest person you can be.  If you don’t have your physical energy in good shape, then your mental energy (your focus), your emotional energy (your feelings), and your spiritual energy (your purpose) will all be negatively affected.  Did you know that studies conducted on people who were clinically depressed showed that consistent exercise raises happiness levels just as much as Zoloft?  Not only that, but here’s the double whammy… Six months later, the people who participated in exercise were less likely to relapse because they had a higher sense of self-accomplishment and self-worth.

NEXT  4 revealed

 

5.Nurture social relationships. – The happiest people on the planet are the ones who have deep, meaningful relationships.  Did you know studies show that people’s mortality rates are DOUBLED when they’re lonely?  WHOA!  There’s a warm fuzzy feeling that comes from having an active circle of good friends who you can share your experiences with.  We feel connected and a part of something more meaningful than our lonesome existence

 

6.Develop strategies for coping. – How you respond to the ‘craptastic’ moments is what shapes your character.  Sometimes crap happens – it’s inevitable.  Forrest Gump knows the deal.  It can be hard to come up with creative solutions in the moment when manure is making its way up toward the fan.  It helps to have healthy strategies for coping pre-rehearsed, on-call, and in your arsenal at your disposal.

 

7.Learn to forgive. – Harboring feelings of hatred is horrible for your well-being.  You see, your mind doesn’t know the difference between past and present emotion.  When you ‘hate’ someone, and you’re continuously thinking about it, those negative emotions are eating away at your immune system.  You put yourself in a state of suckerism (technical term) and it stays with you throughout your day.

 

8.Increase flow experiences. – Flow is a state in which it feels like time stands still.  It’s when you’re so focused on what you’re doing that you become one with the task.  Action and awareness are merged.  You’re not hungry, sleepy, or emotional.  You’re just completely engaged in the activity that you’re doing.  Nothing is distracting you or competing for your focus.
