[ quote ]
the common complaint of having no time often comes from allowing everyone around you to steal yout time. at work, colleagues stop byyour desk to make small talk, unexpected phone calls occur, visitors drop in.
everything seems out of control. nothing goes the way it is 'supposed' to. you are doing everything you can, trying to control and fix it. even with all of your intelligence, determination, and strength, you cannot reverse the set course.
*1st secret - fine-tune your actions
do less, achieve more, make peace with time, trade what you have for what you want, adopt directed dreaming
*2nd secret - put your mind at ease
find wisdom in irritation, surrender reveals your destiny, live to thrive, not just survive, grant yourself grace, transform the four toxic motivators
*3rd secret - discover the divine power
stop reacting, start restfully controlling, stay in the present, epilogue - let go
FINALLY - life is truly meant to be easy.
- use the 3 secrets to unlock your potential
- center yourself in your job, focus your actions, and balance your life
- achieve your goals with less work and worry
- have the time and peace of mind to enjoy the fruits of your labour
- we fail to achieve our goals because we are trying too hard to succeed. the secret...is finding that balance point between effort and ease.
