How to Get Rich - Pause and Reflect

Are you happy with where you are today ?

Are you satisfied that you have done all that you can do to better yourself ?

Chances are you have not consciously thought too much of the above !

Take a Pause 

During the seasonal holidays is a good time to take stock so to speak. This is a time that there is a natural pause in your everyday busy life. This makes for an excellent time to take a pause and have a good hard look at where you stand today.

Take a look backwards in time and write down everything that you have accomplished in your life. Hopefully there are a few things on your list that make you proud and give you a good feeling inside. It is very important to stop and give yourself a good pat on the back so to speak.

There is nothing wrong with taking pride in your past achievements as long as you don't go overboard with the celebration. In other words it is better to keep your celebration more inwards than outwards if you want to keep your friends. Modesty is the best policy when it comes to pride. Keep it mostly internal.

Reflect Yourself 

Imagine looking at yourself in the mirror. Do you like what you see or are there improvements that you would like to make? During your pause, write down all thing that you would like to change. Inner change is where all outer actions start from. Keep this list personal for your eyes only.

From this list decide what is the most important change you would like to make. Make it a goal of yours to make this change by the next pause that you take.This could be a year from now or sooner if you like. Once this is done move onto the next item on your list and repeat.

Keep Current

Of course each pause you take will see a different reflection of yourself. This is because time changes everyone. Your list will need to be updated at each pause to keep current with your life.

Outside influences can strongly affect our inner reflection. As we react to what others want us to do we develop a new self whether we like it or not. As a survival instinct we learn to adapt in whatever ways we can.

The methods you use to adapt will change your inner reflection to become more positive or more negative towards your future desires and dreams. It is your methods that you can control to reach out to the positive and get closer to your desired self.

Success is Within

Whatever success you have had in the past and whatever success you will have in the future has come from and will come from your inner self. How you feel about yourself is all that really matters.

Taking pause and reflecting on your inner self is truly the most important step in getting what you want out of life. Time is always changing and so can you. To your success.

As always, I welcome your comments and suggestions for future topics.
