One of the phrases that we have all heard is … If you want something done, give it to a busy person. I think that it is an admirable goal in life to become THAT person!
I have not always felt that way … many years ago I joined the Royal Navy and the motto for that time in my life was … Never volunteer!
So what is it that takes a person from “Never Volunteer” to wanting to be the “Busy Person”?
My experience in life would suggest the following:
– Everything is connected (more on this in a minute);
– The more you achieve, the more you want to achieve.
– The more you give, the more you will get back.
– Life is much more fun when you are challenged.
– Those who hide from opportunity tend to become bitter people.
– Success is sweet!
About my Everything is Connected theory. Have you ever noticed that so often people who are successful tend to be successful in all aspects of their lives … People that are unhappy, are unhappy in all aspects of their lives … people that are positive are positive in all aspects of their lives?
I really believe that in order to be happy you need to work at ALL aspects of your life and that means different things to different people. However one thing is clear … if you are willing to GIVE, then it will come back in many ways. Which gets us back to the “Busy People” thing … you can’t be a giver without getting busy, you can’t be successful without being busy. Strive to be the “Busy person” everyone wants and you can bet you will also be the successful person.
