Stop The Glorification of ‘Busy’
I often hear from my fellow speakers how ‘busy’ they are and how little time they have. Of course, they are busy. They are doing their best to be of service to their family, their clients, and, hopefully, their self. Last week, I was watching a re-run of The Donna Reed Show, which aired in the late 1950s. The entire episode was focused on the lack of time. So, this is not a recent phenomenon. I also often used to say ‘I’m busy’ as if it proved that I was being productive and successful. And, then I learned the principle that whatever I think and believe will be what I manifest. I did not choose to manifest being ‘busy.’ I chose instead to “always have enough time to accomplish what makes me successful.”
I must stay consciously aware daily because it is so easy to catch the ‘I don’t have time’ virus from others. Yes, I believe it is contagious and it has been spreading for years — year-after-year — as if there is no cure. My protection from this virus is to remember “I always have enough time to accomplish what makes me successful.” I also must remember that it is up to me to choose how I will spend my time. Now, I know the cure is to plan in advance – I use the Strategic Attraction Planning Process to plan how I will divide my time between money-generating activities, social activities, personal activities, family activities…and especially rest and rejuvenation activities, so that I have the energy to give to all of my activities. I can even schedule in spaces between my activities so that there is plenty of time if I choose to do something that pops up unexpectedly. And, of course, I continuously declare that I always have plenty of time to accomplish what makes me successful! I invite you to BE THE CURE. Say it with me now: “I always have enough time!”
And, join me at PERFORM 2014 to learn the simple 4-Step Strategic Attraction Planning Process for my breakout: “The Easy Attraction Mastery Process: 4 Sure-Fire Steps for Attracting More Profitable Speaking Engagements.” I guarantee you will feel less ‘busy,’ and more successful when you use this simple process for five minutes each day!
