The Daily Man-Up

January 9, 2018 | No Comments » | Topics: Man-Up

It is the norm to waste large portions of one’s time.

Most people have very low standards for how they use their time.

They don’t have clarity about where they should direct their attention.

They haven’t created conditions to get clear on a daily basis.

They don’t believe they deserve to spend their time on ONLY those things which fascinate, challenge, and motivate them.

They haven’t discovered nor clarified their deepest held motivations, both for specific goals and for their life in general.

They act and operate from their base-level reasons, which aren’t inspiring.

Hence, most people’s time is spent either on stuff that literally irritates them, or at best, is merely “okay.”

When you spend most of your time doing activities that irritate you, or are just okay, how do you think you come-off to the rest of the world?

Irritated and bored?

Lacking clarity and purpose?

Disconnected and distracted?

 

How do you make the shift?

How do you get clear about what you want?

How do you connect with your deepest held convictions and identity?

How do you operate at peak levels, daily?

How do you enhance your sense of self-worth, and continually upgrade what you believe you can have in your life?

How do you surround yourself with other people who are focused on growth and giving, rather than greed and taking?

By the end of this article, you will be better suited to grapple with these questions.

Your Life Is A Reflection Of What You Believe You Deserve

Everything in your life, right now, is a reflection of what you believe you deserve.

Subconsciously, you believe you are “unworthy” of anything beyond what you currently have.

Unworthy to have more.

Unworthy to contribute more.

Unworthy to experience more.

Unworthy to connect deeper.

Where do these internal attitudes come from? They come from your behaviors.

Your behaviors dictate your beliefs about yourself and the world. If you eat unhealthy food, how do you think that will influence your sense of identity?

What if you changed it up?

What if, instead of eating unhealthy foods, you DECIDED to eat only healthy foods, just for one single day.

How you act and what you do shapes your internal identity. Hence, when you make a personal investment in yourself, you create an immediate psychological upgrade.

You raise the bar on what you believe you’re worth.

You raise the bar on what you believe you can do.

You raise your standards for:

Elevating your sense of what you deserve isn’t about entitlement. It’s about growth. At the deepest level, it’s about giving and gratitude — the hallmarks of abundance.

You give because you already have so much (everything you need and more).

You give because you’re grateful.

You give because you genuinely want to help other people.

You give because you want to grow.

And you grow, because you want to give more. As the saying goes, ‘don’t work to make money… make money so you can do more and better work.’

The first step, then, to using your time in the best possible way, is to elevate what you believe you deserve. If you don’t believe you deserve to spend your time on amazing things, you’ll continually sabotage yourself. You’ll continue to act in ways to PROVE TO YOURSELF you aren’t worth more. You’ll try to keep yourself small.

You elevate your sense of belief by changing your behavior in the here-and-now.

At every next level of your personal evolution, you’ll realize how low your standards once were. You’ll realize how limiting your beliefs and behaviors used to be.

You won’t judge your former self based on your current values, skills, and circumstances. You’ll love your former self, and steps upward you were taking.

You’ll only look back with gratitude.

You’ll only look forward seeking growth and transformation, not greed and transaction.
