"You can have both"
Healthy, wealthy and wise...these aren’t goals, these are my themes. They’re not for the day or even the year, they’re a continuum. They’re the whisper in my ear I heard each night as a boy and remain the mantra that goes on in my head each day. Not a fad diet or the latest hack, more like the decision filter that weeds out distraction and destructive decisions. Not a check list or a spreadsheet, just three words that when I stop for a moment, any moment, I hope to embody. Three words that each create 5 rules. 5 rules that when followed provide a pathway to the three words healthy, wealthy and wise To be healthy means I: -Sweat or stretch daily -Drink water -80/20 plants verse processed -Designate personal alone time weekly -Communicate plans and problems proactively (listen to the whispers so I don’t have to hear the screams) To be wealthy means I: -Automate finances including investments -use money to help people don’t use people to make money (win/win only) -80% of investments in liquid assets -Sleep on it -Maximise, protect and show gratitude towards current revenue streams whilst always looking for new ones To be wise means I: -pay for access to experts -Read or consume stimulating content daily -audit time for productivity and efficiency -audit relationships to check association is in line with my ambitions and intentions -be willing to fail and face criticism in a quest for your potential What themes do you implement in your own life? I’d love to know!
Repost from @theprogressfaculty . . . Are you working or achieving? Dan spoke to us recently about making sure that everything we do has a direct influence on helping us achieve our end goal! Can you implement the 5 daily tasks Dan showed us or is there something else you do to stay focused? Let us know!
There’s a change a coming 🤫 Still a Dad. Still an entrepreneur. Still trying to live a life that says you can have both. The difference? I’m about to use the forums available (like this one) to put my message out there, to share some tools and tips that have and are helping me along my own journey. Anyone close to me knows that this year marks a decade in business for me and whilst I’ve been actively educating people on business and more for the past 7 of those 10 years, it’s been somewhat behind closed 🚪 or behind lecterns and 🎤 for only a select group to see and hear... whilst I’ve always wanted to share more, I’ve also been mindful of a world saturated with content that is often closer to opinions than it is advice. I felt like 10 years of starting, building, buying, selling, changing and growing business’s was me earning a licence to share what I hope will be labelled as advice with you. The support I’ve received on my Instagram @entrepreneur_dad blew me away because people just like me: parents with jobs/ businesses and Busy lives found a connection to the thoughts I shared... in 2020 I’m simply aiming to magnify that impact by sharing more and perhaps you don’t have a business but you’d just like to be doing or feeling better! If you’re noticing changes like my name now @dancross.com.au (things to come 😉), and you’re behind it...thank you! If you’re not that’s ok too. The beauty of all platforms is you get to choose who you follow and engage with. I guess this is the message that says if you want off the 🚎 here’s the stop 🛑 BUT you’ll not only miss any new info I put out there you’ll also miss the cute family photos too... so think about it. I’m looking forward to putting myself out there and embracing the digital world in 2020 and if it means I Impact one more person than it was worth closing my 👀 forgetting the judgement and taking the leap.. perhaps that’s the first lesson 😯 Dan

What are goals for anyway? 🎯 They’re simply a framework for your decision making process. Without them we don’t know what to say yes or no too. We have no aim, we have no energy... so is the magic of goal setting in the achievement part or is it in the setting, reading, reviewing and sharing part? I don’t know🤔 but this video shows you my thoughts... What’s really important is that they’re YOUR goals on YOUR terms ☝️ not driven based on acceptance of someone or something else. The cost of others acceptance now is often at the expense of self acceptance later. 😉
Here’s a thought... Everything you want next lives outside your comfort zone now. So, as you move towards it comfort is replaced with other emotions like stress, overwhelm, anxiety and fear. This is a given as you find yourself in unfamiliar territory ... When this happens our brain kicks into overdrive and screams at us to find a way to get rid of these emotions... that’s when the choice comes. Either, we take the long term option of building on our ability to match the new responsibilities, therefore expanding our comfort zone or... we panic and take the short term option of decreasing responsibility. In other words it’s a fight between how you feel now and what you want for yourself next. It’s the ultimate delayed gratification. When we remove current feelings of overwhelm we risk experiencing delayed feelings of regret.... so what’s the key? The key is to be courageous before hoping to feel confident. The 🔑 is to notice how you feel and congratulate yourself for clearly being in unfamiliar territory, then stay there... practice your staying power in uncomfortable settings and just like wearing a new piece of jewellery, one day you won’t even notice it. When have you decreased responsibility rather than increasing ability and what drove your decisions? An eye opening question that I had to answer myself recently is what is my fear costing me? Maybe a promotion? Maybe a new partner? Could be 💰 could be 😃. Whatever it is, here’s to you and me breaking that cycle in 2020. Share this with someone who needs help with their staying power right now #grit #entrepreneur #win2020 #entrepreneurdad
