I have been pondering lately on the different ways we humans value and cultivate the three vital commodities of Energy, Time, and Money. We all want more of one or all of these, right?
Well, it occurs to me that nearly every challenge that we face in civilised society can easily be solved or eliminated entirely if we had more of one, or all of these three. Please comment below and tell me if you disagree – I’ve tried to find a situation, but can’t think of one.
With more energy, meaning physical energy in our bodies, we would be able to get more done in our days, and generally feel better about ourselves and our lives. Ask the guy who has had a hard day at work if he’d like more energy.
More time – well, obviously, there is no more time. Just the perception of doing more with the time that we have. So, the key here is to be more productive and more efficient, and free ourselves from the tedious energy draining tasks that don’t enhance our lives.
And the big one – more money. Everyone wants more money. But for most people, they have not clearly defined exactly what more money means, or what the benefits that more money would bring to them. What is more money to you? Have you put a number on it?
What I’m saying here is that we really need to focus on these areas and get clear on exactly what it is that we want, and then set about making the necessary changes in order to bring about an increase in these areas.
We can all have more energy, time and money if we just focused on them. Sadly, for most people, they will just continue on like they always have and continue to complain and tell themselves that if only they had more time, or more money, or more energy, they could finally live the life they’ve always wanted.
What Does It Take?
I’ve basically devoted my focus, including my energy, time and money, on finding ways to get more of these core assets, and then pass these findings on to others. I can think of no better use of my own time than this.
We can dress all the different strategies and techniques up in different forms, but at the end of the day, everything I do and everything I endeavour to help people with is to achieve the ultimate goal of increasing one or all of these three areas.
As a brief and general overview, here is what I’ve found that works:
How To Have More Energy:
- Rise Early
- Get enough sleep
- Exercise/Oxygenate your cells
- Eat well – alkalise
How To Have More Time:
- Become aware of the areas of your life where you are wasting time
- Invest your available time into activities that you deem important, but not necessarily urgent – that is, spend more time doing what you love.
- Find ways to leverage your income so you can save time by earning more in less time. A JOB often is the biggest time consumer that we all have.
How To Have More Money:
- Develop your skills and knowledge and build a business around your passions
- Learn to monetise your skills and passions through your online business
- Invest your surplus funds in a mix of short term (trading) and long term investments to produce more surplus funds. Reinvest the returns for the compounding factor.
Now these are just a few ideas, but if we just focused on these areas, I think we could develop a pretty amazing life. And you may think that these are so obvious, and basic. I mean everyone knows most of these things right? Why then don’t people have an abundance of all of them?
That is a very good question.
I’ve created the WealthCircles membership for just these types of people. The ones that don’t want to just settle for mediocre levels of these commodities, and are willing to apply their focus and get more of all of them.
If you feel like you are lacking in Energy, then you probably need to do some of the actions described above.
Need more time?
How about a results-focused time management program to finally equip yourself with the skills and systems that can make you a more efficient operator in your life.
Need more money for your lifestyle?
There are many ways to generate a secondary income and there are many ways to increase your financial wealth.
If you answered yes to any of these questions, we should talk.
