Did You Labor this Labor Day Weekend?

Labor Day has been a federal holiday in the U.S. since 1894. It was meant as a day off to celebrate the economic and social contributions of workers.

I hope your Labor Day was a good one.

But unfortunately, many people were unable to take the day off because of their financial situation. Others may have taken the day off only to feel guilty because they couldn’t really afford to go to the party they attended.

A few celebrated Labor Day feeling confident and secure in the income they generate and the value they produce.

At least in America—and in other parts of the world, too—many people are making less than they did a few years ago. With growing debt—both personal and governmental—and with unemployment and underemployment being what it is, the overall financial future is not all that bright.

You may be saying to yourself, “Wait, I thought Michael Angier was an optimist. I thought he looked on the bright side of things.” And you’re right. I am a positive person. And I’m also a realist. To say that everything is fine when it isn’t is a delusion.

An optimist should be aware of the challenges, risks and the general lay of the land. Being positive does not include thinking everything is fine when a hurricane is approaching and you live in a low-lying area. It does not mean pretending that the economy is doing great when it isn’t.

I’m a big believer in the “Stockdale Paradox”. Admiral Stockdale held to a firm belief that we will prevail, all the while brutally confronting what challenges we face. And, at the same time, confront the most brutal facts of the current reality, whatever they might be.

If your current situation is wanting, you need to do something about it. Waiting for the economy to come back or the politicians to fix it strikes me as naïve at best–and stupid at worst.

Troubled economies provide opportunities as well as challenges. Many people will make fortunes in a down market. And this is a time to look for those opportunities, for new ways of solving problems and to address problems that weren’t there before. It requires different ways of looking at things, new skills and new ideas.

I would never tell you what to do. But I do feel it’s my duty to challenge you and to share ideas on how to increase your income and/or reduce your expenses so you can create more prosperity. It’s our mission: to help people and companies grow and prosper.

There are tens of thousands of people earning additional incomes as well as substantial wealth using the Internet. But beware, there ARE a lot of scams out there that will only waste your time and money.

How are You Managing Your Greatest Asset?

Time ManagementThere’s a lot of talk these days about different classes: the rich and the poor, the haves and the have-nots, the privileged and the underprivileged. It’s been said that the rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer—perhaps they’re right.

But I think there have always been differences. And as troubled and challenged as the middle class is today, history has shown us that the disparity between rich and poor is less now than in centuries past.

And no matter how much more advantage any class has over another, there is one thing every single person has in equal amounts—time.

We all have 24 hours a day. And with few exceptions, we have freedom of choice as to how we invest the 1,440 minutes every one of us is given each and every day.

The richest person who ever lived is unable to buy more time. They might leverage it and hire things done but they cannot bargain for more time.

Ben Franklin wrote, “Do not squander time, for that is what life is made of.”

I think we can agree with Ben. Our life is made up of time. And, of course, it’s not the time we put in, but rather what we put in to the time. We decide how to spend it. We decide how we live our lives.

Are you satisfied with how you invest your time? Do you respect and value it to the degree you should?

Are you effective as well as efficient? Are you living in accordance with your core values? Do you take actions and get things done that further your highest objectives?

I challenge you to take a hard look at your stewardship of your most precious asset.

I encourage you to look for ways to become more efficient and effective? How can you leverage yourself with tools, services and technology? How can you get more of the right things done in less time?

And I can think of no better way to sharpen your time and event management skills than attending all or part of our upcoming TeleSummit on finishing the year STRONG.

Achieve more of your peak potential. All five days of this event are FREE. There is no cost to participate. All you need to do is register. And when you do, you will also get a free—and very in-depth—Personal Achievement Assessment.

Refocusing by Reflecting [plus 3 free reports]

There are no straight paths to a worthy goal. If you can reach your goal without deviating from your plan and without getting off track, your goal is either very small, super simple or you are incredibly lucky.

Big goals are achieved by diligently staying on course, and recognizing—and forgiving ourselves—when we get off course. Achieving a worthwhile goal requires a constant effort in refocusing, redirecting, refining and re-evaluating.

And an important part in accomplishing that is the ability and commitment to reflect on our progress.

At the end of the day, the week, the month and the quarter, it’s paramount that we think about what we’ve done, what we haven’t and why. I’m a big fan of WW, WD, WN (What Worked, What Didn’t and What’s Next). It’s a great way to look back on a time period, a project or the system you used to achieve what you wanted.

I’m also a big believer in “Correction Without Invalidation”. This objective reflection and evaluation without guilt is critical in making adjustments, corrections and improvements.

Be sure to schedule your reflection time. Make it part of your routine and you will find it will accelerate your progress and help you be more effective.

Next week, I’m conducting an in-depth training for Diamond Club & Lifetime Gold Members on the best ways to stay on track, get back on track and refocus on what we really want. If you are not yet one of these members, you can become one at either www.SuccessNet.org/gold/ or www.SuccessNetDiamonds.com

Members will be given access information early in the week. And if you are not sure whether you are a lifetime Gold Member or not, please fill out a Help Desk Ticket and we will let you know.
