Thanks so much for listening to A Rich Life podcast. In today's episode, we are talking all about how success is hidden in your daily routine.
Look, it's 2019, and a lot of us are saying things like NEW YEAR, NEW ME! IT"S MY TIME! I'm going to become a better person, and I'm going to lose my weight this year!!!! It's my season of overflow, WELL, the only way that you will be able to get to where you want to be is to look at what you do daily.
They always say, what is done in the dark will eventually come to light. Well, that's really what success is as well.
In this new year, I don't want us to be afraid. Have you felt like you've been playing small all these years?
Do you feel like you deserve more? Do you want to live better and feel like you are living the life that you've always dreamed of?
Well, I'm here to let you know that everything that you want to achieve is on the horizon, but mostly, it's entirely up to you.
Success depends on what you do with every living moment of your life.
Success depends on if you wake up on time or if you hit the snooze button.
Success depends on if you apply yourself daily or if you don't.
What we all need to do is decide today that our lives are going to be different.
When I say that the secret of success is all tied in your daily routine, I'm talking about everything that you are doing with your time.
In this new year, on this new day, we can no longer get consumed in what's going on around us.
We MUST have tunnel vision.
It doesn't matter what folks are doing or what people are saying about us. It doesn't matter what they think about us, and it doesn't matter if they like our Instagram photo or not.
We not only want to SAY WHAT WE WANT but we have to LIVE WHAT WE ARE SAYING!
My mom always told me, she said, LISHA, IF YOU ALWAYS DO WHAT YOU'VE ALWAYS DID, YOU'LL ALWAYS BE WHERE YOU'VE ALWAYS BEEN.
If you keep looking on Facebook, then you will continue to know what everyone else is doing.
If you keep looking at long episodes on Netflix watching everyone else live their dreams, then you will be in the same place next year.
If you keep eating those potato chips and ice cream trying to squeeze in those jeans you KNOW you can't wear anymore, then you will remain there.
If you continue to get on the phone and gossip about what others are doing, then you will remain there.
If you continue to purchase those online courses online and not create your own, then you will continue to sit and watch while others are on the way to achieving their dreams.
The world is turning, and you should be too.
Businesses are being created, and OH SO wants the same for you.
People are developing very successful businesses and don't care who's watching. That can be you too.
So, every single day. From here on out. Let's start to create the life that we want to live.
There's a Coach that says, Talk is CHEAP, but MR Do is the MAN.....
What are you doing GIRLFRIEND?
Look, no longer are we going to find the perfect Instagram meme to describe our feelings or to tell people about our grind. Enough with all the memes and big announcements. Honey, let's be on our grind this year and let's have the receipts and paid invoices to show it.
Do you think Beyonce is concerned about Rihanna, Cierra, Cardi Bi or Nicki Minaj? I mean really?
Do you think that she's sitting there looking over her shoulder worrying about them?
I've gone on Beyonce's Instagram page, and she has 122 million followers on Instagram, and she's following NO ONE!
You all, in this new year, let's be trendsetters.
Every day let's come up with a new idea. A new way to grow, a new way to learn, a new way to create.
Every day let's be on our grind.
Every day let's become the person that we need to be that will help us to catapult us forward.
So to live a rich life, here's what you need to do.
1. Get you some daily affirmations.
You need to say things like; I'm fearfully and wonderfully made. My spirit attracts God inspired ideas that create great wealth. You need to speak to yourself; I'm fit, firm and fabulous. Tell yourself this, God is giving me the desires of my heart and is helping my plans to achieve.
Girl! You have to tell yourself say, and I am successful, I am awesome, I am powerful, and I know every day isn't going to be easy, but I'm going to go forth.
You have to say to yourself that God has given us the power to create and obtain wealth.
Girl! As long as we have wifi, a cell phone, and a computer, there is no reason why we should be BROKE!
In 2019 the second thing you will need is self-discipline.
So, when I say that the secret to success is hidden in your daily routine, I mean that some days you won't feel like it.
Some days your body will tell you no. Some days you will take a nap, some days you will get tired. And that's all fine too, but when you are determined to live a rich life you can't let anything stop you.
When your mind tells you no, your dreams have got to say to you yes.
I'm here to tell you to get off the couch, put your ice cream down, and get your laptop, cell phone, and wifi and let's get to work.
And the third thing you will need to ensure that you have a successful 2019 is a clear vision.
Take a trip for me a second.
Imagine that it's raining outside and you get in your car. Everything starts up, your lights work, your horn beeps, you can start, the battery is charged, and your tires are in excellent shape.
But the only thing is, is that it's raining. And your windshield wipers DO NOT WORK.
I'm here to tell you, girlfriend, that you can't go anywhere if your windshield whippers don't work.
For you to move forward, you have to have a clear vision of where you are going and how you are going to get there.
No need to have a perfect vehicle but your windshield whippers don't work in the rain.
So look, let's start on the right track with clear and realistic expectations for the year.
And let's try to plan quarter by quarter. Three months at a time let's set benchmarks for yourself and remember that what you do in a day counts.
If you're looking to transform your life and you need a support group to help you. I always talk on this podcast about who you're surrounded by, and I figured that for us to support each other, that it's essential to get us into a community.
So, if you are looking to be side by side with women who believe in you just as much as I believe in you, well make sure that after you listen to this episode that you join us in our facebook group.
