When You Feel Life Escaping, Do This

A recent study determined that in a man’s life, there are 7-12 course-altering moments.

While that number seems low, it means, nonetheless, that in a life-span lasting 84 years, every 7-12 years, your life would be completely different.

I find this quite remarkable, and overwhelming for most individuals.

What’s more fascinating is that you only realize that you experienced such a moment years later, but in order for this moment to be a favorable change, you must be aware that any decision you make, however trivial, might be important in the long-term.

This study is very thought-provoking, because it gives life meaning, and everyday life becomes more intriguing.

It puts the responsibility on us to comprehend the magnitude of our decisions and our discipline level at small, non-critical scenarios that happen to us constantly, and places the triumph of our lives particularly in those moments.

Another way to use this fact to our advantage is to understand that you must work hard towards key moments and set up these moments throughout the year. If you do that, it’s nearly guaranteed that you will have opportunities for major change.

A friend of mine does just that. His business flow is built on a number of seasonal conferences that he makes sure to attend. Prior to arrival, he sets up dinners with key prospects and treats them to a good time. He builds the kind of relationships with them over the course of one evening that normally take years of nourishment and dedication to achieve in the normal flow of business.

It’s very difficult to change your mindset into this type of mentality, where you boil life down to selective hours of epic importance, but it’s something that you must learn to do.

In fact, think about Apple Inc., prior to the IPod – it was one product that catapulted them into stardom.

Michael Jordan had made one major basket in the NCAA finals, and that made a national sensation out of him.

George Soros had made one large and leveraged bet against the Bank of England that netted him over a billion dollars.

Looking back at my life, I realize that the most life-changing moments I experienced have a common thread: they are all moments of extreme confidence where new relationships have been formed.

In fact, my personal belief is that the fastest way to advance in life is to have a magnetic personality. That’s why I feel that my personality ultimately determines the bulk of my results throughout life, and I work on it daily.

The strengths of bonds, in my view, rely upon a number of factors:

  1. Confidence: Choose those who can do the job, because the results achieved by them and their obligation to you will inspire loyalty and increased attention to details on your part. A team creates a fortress of confidence, and solutions to any challenge rise from that state of mind.
  2. Understanding: Don’t make the errors I did. I paid for them big time. When you want to have tremendous results, the last thing you can afford to have is someone who doesn’t understand the tasks, the importance, or the magnitude of each step in the road. Those types of people will frustrate you and slow you down. I had to learn that lesson when I chose to venture out on a new business some 10 years ago with a person I liked. It was like dragging someone through the finish line.


Your Most Important Alliance in 2017 and Beyond

Your worst critic lives between your ears – it’s the same with all of us, I guess.
What I do, and it’s now done mostly subconsciously, is remind myself that the best thing 
I can do is never have self-pity.

I have found that gratitude is the same as believing that any circumstance that still needs to be rectified will be done in due time. That state of mind helps with undertaking new roles, as well as becoming a much more enjoyable person to be around.

When others find you pleasing and magnetic, the objections you once faced when dealing with everyday issues and defining moments become absolutely manageable and smoother.

Be the type of person that others are addicted to, and you will have a year to remember and a life worth living.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]

President William Howard Taft, who presided over one of the worst banking shocks in U.S. history, was explaining to Woodrow Wilson, the incoming president, who got America its Federal Reserve and made the call to get America involved in WW1, that the job at the White House would isolate him greatly. “This is the loneliest place in the world,” Taft said. Wilson was stunned by the warning, but was even more shocked by the reality of it: “I never dreamed such loneliness and desolation of heart possible.”

The short squeeze could begin as soon as today. No, Portfolio Wealth Global isn’t projecting or forecasting a rip-roaring rally in the markets, but from our perspective, the markets have been engaged in heavy discounting for the first 6 months in anticipation of a hard landing, recession, higher funding costs for corporations and households, stubbornly high inflation, and a war in Europe all affecting global supply chains.
