Take Responsibility

December14

Sometimes it seems like the world is against us; nothing is going right and you feel like giving up.

This is the point we need to remember that everything we do in life comes about from our own actions – and I do mean everything! This is why it is so important to recognise that everything we do happens because of what we have done in the past.

Even the things that happen that are not directly related to us, are in some way derived from our own actions because we live in a world where everything is connected – which is why it is so important to be producing a positive energy – but thats for another post 🙂

My point is for us to understand why things happen to us – good and bad, we must first take responsibility for everything that comes into our lives. By doing this in a non judgmental way we take away any blame that is being projected.

Once we remove any blame we take back the control to live our lives as we wish; this i believe is true freedom and it all starts with taking responsibility.

Cheers,

Matt

Do It Now

December9

Procrastination……… everyone does it.

With all our best intentions, procrastination is something we all have to battle with at some stage.  I have read so many cures and prophecies on how best to deal with this little gremlin that rears its ugly head at the time we most need to take action: time management tools, schedules, planners, motivation techniques – i have seen them all!

Do you know what it comes down to? Its the old Nike slogan: Just do it – in fact my version of this is Do It Now!

There is nothing quite as satisfying as getting a task done that has been hanging over my head so why wait to feel that satisfaction? Sounds simple i know but all it takes is a few contemplative moments alone to tap into that feeling you know you can give yourself .

As i write this i am sitting amongst a stack of unpacked boxes from our move to our new house a few days ago. The task of putting everything in its new place is daunting so today i will be taking my own advice: Do it Now!

I am looking forward to the feeling i have at the end of the day when i look around and bask in the satisfaction of completing the task and i cant wait!!

Cheers,

Matt

findmattjones.com is a blog website aimed at those interested in personally developing themselves to achieve greater financial freedom enabling them to find their true purpose in life. In this blog you will find personal experiences and ideas from Matt and his own quest for financial freedom.

Matt worked in the theatre industry as a lighting technician for over 15 years. Although the work was satisfying and allowed him to explore his creative talents, Matt was ruled by the need to swap his time for money to survive.

In 2005, Matt quit the theatre industry to educate himself in property investing and personal development. Since then has created his own property networking group that has over 200 members and now invests full time in property and internet marketing.

On his journey from paid employee to entrepreneur, Matt has discovered that personally developing himself and creating a winning mindset was critical to achieving any and all of his dreams and goals.

This blog is dedicated to sharing the pathway to those hopes and dreams.
