Fundamentally we are all smart

You already have all of the knowledge, well most of the knowledge necessary to achieve whatever it is you want to achieve.  We all learned the basics before we left high school.  Are there some things we still must learn, absolutely.  But, what I am talking about are the basic things, the fundamentals.

If you want to lose weight.  Find an accountability partner.  Eat less. Eat healthier foods. Exercise more.

If you want to have more money. Spend less than you make. Invest into things that go up in value. Save.  Don’t go into debt. Increase your income.

If you want to be promoted. Work harder than everyone else. Have a great attitude. Never complain to your peers.  Increase your skills and volunteer for anything and everything.

If you want to be influential. Show others that you care about them.  Become an interesting person by striving to be more than you are today.  Listen more than you talk.

If you want to be successful. Define what success looks like for you. Pursue it by taking action every minute of the day.

 

My mentor told me that if someone comes a long and says, “Hey check this out, we have some new fundamentals that can help you.” You better run.  There are no new fundamentals.  They are called fundamentals, they aren’t new.  They are old.  We all know them, but we just fail to apply them.

What are some of the fundamentals that you already know but you are failing to apply?

To your success and your future.
