Make Time For You

You deserve better than what you have been getting! 

The END!Graphics-Tablet-Alien




Okay, telling you that you deserve better is not something that is new to you. You know you deserve exponentially better than what you have been getting out of life.  

But in order to experience life’s best, you must make time for you! That is the only way you are going to reach your mountaintop of success. I know your best friend has your back, but unfortunately she is busy planning her own life. Your loved ones also want what is the best for you, but they are presently occupied and dealing with their own reality. 

If you do not make time to improve all facets of your life, then no one else will do it for you. If you do not invest in yourself, then you cannot expect others to make meaningful deposits into your life. No one will take you seriously if you do not take your own life seriously.

Yes, you have worthy goals and ambitions. But having thoughts about success will not make you successful. In order to become successful, you must hold yourself accountable for your success. You must also take advantage of success opportunities in the lifetime of those opportunities. 

Here are some ways to mine the value out of every moment.

Goal Setting

  • Set aside a specific time each day to brainstorm and plan your day (no writing, just thinking). This exercise teaches you how to focus and hold an image in your mind—a practice you will need to master in order to win at the highest levels. 
  • Start with a written plan. This means to write your goals down (this activity should not take you longer than three minutes).
  • Select the goal that is dearest to your heart. The reason this step is so important is because when you achieve a major goal, it facilitates the accomplishment of minor goals.
  • This step recaptures the above step. Be sure that you only focus on one goal at a time. Trying to accomplish multiple goals will dilute your improvement efforts and impede your forward momentum. 

Goal Achievement

  • Be a willing and diligent student. Learn as much as you can about your industry, market and demographic. Watch related videos and vlogs, read books (lots of them), and make Google your best friend.
  • Connect with people in your industry (i.e., mid-level experts and influencers). Reach out to those individuals via social media (Do Not Solicit) and let them know you are seeking a mentor and/or coach. You’d be surprise at the positive responses you will receive. (Keep in mind that finding the right person could take a few weeks or months). But the key is to be persistent. 
  • Execute! You must execute! Remember, the bigger the goal, the harder the grind.
  • Commit!!! This is where the separation between winners and everyone else begins. At this stage, you are ALL IN. There is no turning back, meaning, you have made a decision to stick with the task until you achieve that goal. Keep in mind that this is NOT an “overnight success” endeavor—we are talking about dedicating yourself to that particular niche for years.

  1. Dear Jossiah

    Many of us do things in a multi-tasking way in our every-day life, but in fact it is better: to do one thing at a time and give 100% attention to it – according to my Master Sant Kirpal Singh

    Wishing all what is good for you

  2. This is very helpful to me. I wake up every morning with too many things to have to get done that day, I have a ‘To Do’ list which is way too long. I’ll get more done if I just stand back, breathe, prioritise and focus on a few things on that list. Thank you I look forward to your posts 🙂

  3. I loved the part about goal setting! These steps should be so obvious, but they’re really not. I could stand some improvement on my own, and this should really help me out there 🙂 Haven’t been around too much this summer, so I’m happy to see you’re still keeping it up with the amazing posts!

  5. This particular post couldn’t have come at a better time. I’m struggling with finding the headspace to write and work on my blog and balance changes in my personal and family life at the same time. You make the obstacles seem so easy to overcome! Thank you!

    1. I appreciate your transparency. I would say that setbacks and obstacles are “easy” to overcome if that is what you are thinking about doing. Because where your focus goes, your energy flows. What you think about all the time, you attract into your life. What you feed will grow. So continue nurturing positivity and optimism. Focus on solutions and winning. And you WILL win!

  7. Reblogged this on Karishma's Blog and commented:
    The mos difficult thing to learn and is the most important at the same time is Stealing time for yourself… Josiah has exactly described it here.
    My advice to constantly be in touch with yourself should be started with tiny goals as to with the 5-10-15 or even 30 minute of the day doing something you love. Can be anything, dance, music, lazy potato TV watching or even gardening or munching. Now the challenge is to do it REGULARLY EVERY DAY! And see how you can tick mark those big time seeming impossible goals! Do come and share your experience with me I would love to hear you!

  8. I tell people the same thing when I see them down, and then they look at me like “Hu!” then self bargaining sets in “Oh i can’t, I will later, I don’t have time. ” etc..etc… Then I ask them something like this. If you don’t make time for yourself, then how can be your true self? And more importantly, what are you working so hard for, if you don’t make time for yourself? I may be re-entering the realm of social media and other platforms Harry, but if I can or it’s allowed, I’ll reblog or tweet it. Who knows maybe it’ll inspire someone to make time for themselves.
