You’re driven. You’re successful. You’re in the office, or otherwise on the job, from early in the morning until late at night. But do you have the proper money-making mindset?
It’s not a smart idea to think about business all the time. In fact, being a so-called “workaholic” has been shown to be pretty counter-productive. Unfortunately, if you’re the type of person who puts his or her job above everything else, you might not be open to easing up.
What if the techniques to help you cut back on working also made you more productive and effective when you are working? It’s called the “money-making mindset,” and here are three easy techniques to help you achieve it.
1. Eat well
It can be too easy to skip breakfast in the morning so you can start your day quickly. Or to grab a bite of fast food as a way to get lunch over with so you can return to your desk.
Not to mention heating up a frozen dinner at night because you don’t want to take the time to prepare something. But you’re not actually saving time when you skip meals and eat junk, because you’re not giving yourself what you need to perform at your absolute best.
Your mind is powered by what’s in it, so you want to fuel up properly before a big day at work. Almonds are said to promote brain power, blueberries help your body eliminate toxins, and dark-green vegetables can promote overall health.
So don’t think of eating right as an obstacle; think of it as putting top-quality fuel into the high-performance vehicle which is you.
Many people — especially many “Type A” go-getters — dismiss meditation as a waste of time. After all, why just sit around and do nothing when you could be crafting deals and making money?
Meditation actually has the opposite effect. When you take as little as 20 minutes a day to sit quietly with a clear mind, you’ll find yourself more focused and efficient throughout the rest of the day. Meditation requires no special beliefs or mantras — you simply sit quietly.
And it doesn’t take long to notice the benefits. A clearer, more focused mind is a mind ready to conquer any business challenge.
You don’t have to spend your life at the gym in order to enjoy the benefits of exercise. Even a few hours a week can have tremendous benefits. If stress reduction, increased energy, and a longer life aren’t reasons enough to start exercising, try this: exercise can really be fun!
Do you like tackling problems and fighting your way through to solutions? You might like tackling and fighting in the ring, too. Mixed martial arts is a great way to get in shape while being competitive in a safe environment.
If that sounds like fun, but you don’t where to start, don’t worry. All the MMA gear you need is available online.
There’s nothing wrong with being driven and successful — but its not worth sacrificing your health over. Fortunately, by following these tips, you’ll not only improve your health, you’ll improve your money-making mindset. And that’s a value you can take to the bank.
