ACCOUNTABILITY
Seven tips
for seven days
Recently my book STUFF for Business has been selling
very well and a lot of happy people that have bought
it have asked me if I would do a regular blog with my
favourite tips for business and life. Here we go then, seven
tips for seven days;
Monday... Stop expecting other people to agree with you.
You deserve to be happy. You deserve to live a life you
are excited about. Don’t let the opinions of others make
you forget that. You are not in this world to live up to the
expectations of others, and neither should you feel that
others are here to live up to your expectations. In fact, the
more you approve of your own decisions in life, the less
approval you need from everyone else. You have to be
yourself, and follow your own intuition, however scary that
may feel or prove to be. Don’t compare yourself to others. Don’t get discouraged by their progress or success.
Follow your own path and stay true to your own purpose.
6 STEER YOUR BUSINESS
Success is ultimately about spending your life happily in
your own way.
Tuesday... Stop expecting them to suddenly change. If
there’s a specific behaviour someone you care about has
that you’re hoping disappears over time, it probably won’t.
If you really need them to change something, be honest
and put all the cards on the table so this person knows
how you feel and what you need them to do. For the most
part though, you can’t change people and you shouldn’t
try. Either you accept who they are or you choose to live
without them. It might sound harsh, but it’s not. When
you try to change people, they often remain the same, but
when you don’t try to change them – when you support
them and allow them the freedom to be as they are – they
will gradually change and in the most beautiful way. Because what really changes is the way you see them.
