Start to say I Don’t Care…
When I say that does it have a negative or positive connotation?
Most will lean towards the negative. But it is also equally positive.
See, Newton said it best
For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.
Therefore it must be true that it is equally as positive as it is negative.
My purpose in this is, is to get you to think 1% differently.
See I often say I do not care. It is not that I am rude or unsympathetic, in fact, it’s the opposite.
However, in order to have laser clear focus, we need to shut off external distractions. Otherwise, they will derail us.
I do not care about TV shows, sporting events, and gossip about what Sally and Bob are doing - I hope they are well.
What I do care about is that I am doing my daily behaviors, being accountable, providing for myself, my family, my businesses, and my community.
As I see it, when I care about those external things, it will take away my focus. This would mean that I do not care about my goals, because if I did care for my goals, then I should not be distracted by those external things as it would mean that I took away my focus from attaining them.
It is okay to be selfish for yourself. It is okay to protect your time. It is okay to be disciplined. So long as you lead with empathy, compassion, and selflessness.
I am bombarded daily, as you are, with so many things that try to derail us. It is vital that you stick to your main focus, otherwise, it will directly impact everything else in your life.
I will say that shutting off all of these distractions has allowed me to be more focused and grow larger and expand into other verticals faster, hence building out my vision.
I will often say in my training sessions: “do not step over dollars to get pennies.” You must become okay losing a little to get a lot. We can not please everyone. We can not sell to everyone. We can not lease to everyone. What is your Wheelhouse and go all in. Do not get distracted by the shiny pennies that take you off your focus.
I firmly believe that by shutting off distractions and staying focused you can double your production.
Start to say “ I Don’t Care” with a smile.
Often we get attached to external things that drive our internal processes. We need to look more inward than outward.
It is ok to want luxury, money, yachts, fancy cars as goals. However, to think they will bring true happiness, it won’t.
Now, when you have true inner peace and those things. The reward is tenfold.
I had several people who were feeling down about not having “things” and those “things” they were seeking for the wrong reasons.
