3 Simple Life-Changing Things

The other day I was reading about a copywriter who said he was asked to write the sales material for a self-help course that cost $1,500.

He spent time looking over all the course material and said that after reading all the information, it all boiled down into just 3 simple things:

- Get more sleep.

- Eat more vegetables.

- Find something you like to do in life and do that, whatever it is.

The first two are a given. Everyone knows to get plenty of sleep and to eat lots of vegetables.

It was the third one that got my attention because that is almost what my new book is all about.

But there's more than simply finding something you like to do. There are other factors involved in being able to enjoy your life and live it on your own terms.

And in my book, Mission Critical For Life, I tell you what you need to do to find your own mission in life, and how to do it.

And it will cost you a lot less than $1,500.

In fact, you can download the ebook for less than $10.

And buy a hardback copy too.

Life Saving Mission

I've been talking a lot lately about my new book, Mission Critical For Life.

And that's because, not only is it a great book and an absorbing read, having a mission can literally save your life.

Now I know that might sound over-the-top, but it's true.

You see having a mission gives you a purpose in life. It's productive and you enjoy it. And this has the knock-on effect of making you less needy of other people's time and attention when you have your mission always waiting for you.

Unproductive people who don't have a mission are always miserable. You can usually tell who they are because they have dirty homes, use drugs or alcohol, are lonely, depressed and lack confidence.

On the other hand, people with a mission are the exact opposite.

They don't need others at all (although others need them) and so they are never lonely, are happy, healthy, driven and confident.

And mostly, they really enjoy life and love what they do.

Use Absence to Increase Respect and Honor

I love this saying because it's true:

'Use absence to increase respect and honor' 
~ 48 Laws of Power

In fact, I like this saying so much that I used it in my new book, Mission Critical For Life.

When you start to get busy with your mission, it also makes you remove yourself from your social circle more. Being elusive (reclusive) makes you appear more valuable to others. People will want to spend time with you.

The opposite is true of chatty non-stop talkers who are always available. They are the least respected. People want to get away from them.

When those in your social circle start to see less of you, they place you in higher esteem. It's such a natural phenomenon.

And you don't even have to try because having a mission, naturally makes you absent from others more.

So no matter who they are, and no matter how they let you down, or how much they want to be with you, you can (and will) always have your mission to turn to.

And once you discover what that is, you'll be Mission Critical For Life.

Spend Time. Don't Fill It

What's the difference between spending time and filling time?

Filling (killing/wasting) time means you have nothing to do so you look for things to distract you while time passes by.

Spending time means doing what matters - to you. Something substantial that gives you an ROI.

What's surprising is that most people expect you to waste your time on things that they think you SHOULD be doing. This is just another form of bullying.

The proof that so many people are bored and looking for something to fill the time in their boring unfulfilled lives is all the passing bandwagons that people jump on. At the moment it's climate change.

Before that, it was the diminishing ozone layer, and before that, it was acid rain. Now they don't care about any of those things and instead think that burning coal is the issue.

There are always passing bandwagons for bored people to jump onto.

And they always think that they are experts. Yet they have nothing better to do with their lives except copy whatever others are doing. They are reactive. Never proactive.

Cafes and bars are always full of people filling their time gossiping and talking much without saying anything.

And while all this time-wasting is going on, there are others who are filling their time and their lives by pursuing their mission.

They don't have time for idle chit-chat and other time-killing activities.

They prioritise their mission and spend their time doing what they want to do. Something substantial that gives them an amazing ROI, including financial freedom, astounding self-confidence, and peace of mind.

This is Mission Critical For Life.
