Set Yourself Up For A Win Every Day
We have now launched our new ‘active-proof’ phone wallet! It’s been an amazing experience so far and we’re excited to be up and running!
Which brings me to our first article and…what to write.
The obvious is to tell you about our exciting new product, why it’s great, the problem it solves, etc, etc, etc. Whilst I’m sure that will come (because we do think it’s great), selling wallets is not our main vision. So instead I’ve decided our first newsletter will be around our real purpose and passion which is to inspire active people to experience more in life.
You could argue that this article is one stepped removed from our brand - I mean what does it have to do with buying a phone wallet!? However I hope you see the essence behind this is truly what we're all about and that it makes a difference in your life in some way.
Many of us often feel time poor and struggle to really be effective in our day to day lives. It's easy to get on the treadmill of life without really knowing what you want or where you're heading.
A note on 'time poor' - anyone who says they don’t have time actually means “I don’t know how to prioritize what’s important to me in my life”. So start prioritizing! Pick 3 things that matter most to you and allocate a little time each day to move towards your end goal. This will help you form a habit and help you actually reach your goal!
Now, here are my top 10 links to set you up for a win each day, help you get more out of life, and the best part…they can have a massive impact with most taking less than 10 minutes to complete.
1. Win the day – MFCEO Project (***Rude words warning! This is not suitable for work or around the kids***)
Listening to this will actually take more than 10 minutes, but it is a life changer and so I have put it first! Andy is one of the most inspiring entrepreneurs you will come across and the MFCEO Project podcasts have changed my life and how I approach every day. If you only listen to one of their many podcasts, it has to be "Win The Day". Listen and act on, it will change your life. Please don't miss the disclaimer that the language is MA15+.
