Your Ships Come in Over a Calm Sea
The Q Wealth Report
11 August, 2008
One thing me and my colleagues at The Q Wealth Report always tell those who are interested in setting up a business of any sort, offshore or onshore, is that if you are in a permanent state of stress, you will find it harder if not impossible to attract the wealth that you want into your life. Its a simple rule: it doesnt matter how many ships there are out at sea or how full of goodies they are, none of them can get into the harbour if theres a storm raging.
Everybody has their stress points. The internet is certainly one for me. Granted, I basically live on the internet, and I certainly couldnt do my work without it. But things happen so fast, that I find myself distracted by hundreds of different things going on, from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to how I should fix the air conditioning in an apartment I own thousands of miles away. With all this information overload it is hard to concentrate on actually getting things done, moving forward in my personal and professional life. As they say, you can end up not seeing the wood for the trees.
So if you too are overloaded by email, try letting go for a few days (or even a few weeks). You will be amazed how problems miraculously solve themselves without your intervention. I said this to a friend of mine, a busy property developer the other day. When he was younger and carefree, he refused to carry a mobile phone. Now that he has a young family and a major real estate development, hes in touch 24/7 via his Blackberry. He said he couldnt afford to just disappear anymore. Then, thinking about it further, he admitted that the whole major project he is working on just fell into the palm of his hand because of some good contacts he made while out partying, disconnected from the world.
Try to take some time off this summer. Go on holiday with your family, and dont check email. Switch off your cellphone. You deserve it. And you will come back refreshed, much more productive, and with some great ideas.
Next week: What is Harmonic Wealth, what are the Five Pillars of Wealth, and how can they benefit you?
Look forward to more blog entries about Freedom, Wealth and Privacy. I hope you enjoy them and that you can use the information here to benefit your business and your life. In turn I would much appreciate your feedback, comments and questions. I can be contacted via firstname.lastname@example.org.
