How is your business going? Are you still struggling? There are so much to do, time is running so fast and you can find less and less time for yourself? But they keep telling you how important is personal development for success in life and your business. Where is that secret, how to find time for that?
Ok, I agree we all want to improve our lives and ourselves. But there are so many distractions and so many things to do, that a lot of people wake up each day, do something and go to bed with no progress. This way life pretty much stays the same, no improvement.
And then you hear it again: To create a successful life that you ultimately want, you must first dedicate time each day to becoming a person who is capable of creating and sustaining that level of success
“Work on yourself more than you do on your job” – Jim Rohn
But how to manage time for that? Luckily, there is a method to do it in as little as six minutes a day. Found it about a year ago here: http://www.entrepreneur.com/
SAVERS, a sequence that combines the six most effective personal development practices known to man. While someone could invest hours on these practices, it only takes one minute for each — or six minutes total — to see extraordinary results.
Just imagine if the first six minutes of every morning began like this:
Minute 1: S is for silence.
Instead of hitting the snooze button, and then rushing through your day feeling stressed and overwhelmed, invest your first minute in sitting in purposeful silence. Sit quietly, calm and peaceful and breath deeply. Maybe you meditate. Center yourself and create an optimum state of mind that will lead you effectively through the rest of your day.
Maybe you say a prayer of gratitude and appreciate the moment. As you sit in silence, you quiet your mind, relax your body and allow your stress to melt away. You develop a deeper sense of clarity, purpose, and direction.
Minute 2: A is for Affirmations.
Pull out and read your page of affirmations — written statements that remind you of your unlimited potential, your most important goals and the actions you must take today to achieve them. Reading over reminders of how capable you really motivate you. Looking at which actions you must take, re-energizes you to focus on doing what’s necessary today to take your life to the next level.
Minute 3. V is for visualization.
Close your eyes and visualize what it will look like and feel like when you reach your goals. Seeing your ideal vision increases your belief that it’s possible and your desire to make it a reality.
Minute 4. E is for exercise.
Stand up and move your body for 60 seconds, long enough to increase the flow of blood and oxygen to your brain. You could easily do a minute of jumping jacks, push-ups, or sit-ups. The point is that you raise your heart rate, generate energy and increase your ability to be alert and focused.
Minute 5. R is for reading.
Grab the self-help book you’re currently reading and read one page, maybe two. Learn a new idea, something you can incorporate into your day, which will improve your results at work or in your relationships. Discover something new that you can use to think better, feel better and live better.
Minute 6. S is for scribing.
Pull out your journal and take one minute to write down something you’re grateful for, something you’re proud of and the top one to three results that you’re committed to creating that day. In doing so, you create the clarity and motivation that you need to take action.
In my busy schedule, I decided: You should try it and why not start today. In the beginning, it was hard to even to focus on those 6 minutes, but when you start to feel changes, you see results. You move closer to your dream. So, how you think, investing a minimum of six minutes into becoming the person that we need to be to create the lives we truly want isn’t it only reasonable?
