One of the big barriers to achieving greater success in our
lives is that most of us think it’s going to take a lot of hard
work to get there.
The good news is you can often get much better results
in your life without having to work longer and harder hours.
Here’s a real life example of the easy way to success.
A lady called Cindy Cashman saw an interesting idea
ago that took her fancy. The idea was for a book with
the title “Everything men know about women.”
The book was over 100 pages long and inside there was
nothing but blank pages.
Cindy liked the fun nature of the book but she didn’t like the
he idea of having to work really hard to make a few sales.
So she began looking for ways to sell huge amounts of her
book with very little effort.
Cindy approached businesses like women’s clothing
shops and got them to display her book next to the cash
register. Women shopping at these stores would pick up the
book because of the catchy title, laugh when they saw it was
totally blank inside and would then buy a whole bunch to give
as gifts to people they knew.
Cindy kept the price very affordable and sold over a million
copies of her book over the next few years.
In your own life always be on the lookout for things you can
do that are low effort with high rewards.
Saying thanks, showing appreciation, displaying affection,
watching a sunrise or sunset, caring for a pet or a plant,
smiling at a casual acquaintance or stranger, committing a
random act of kindness, enjoying a walk in a beautiful place
these are all ways of getting great results with very little effort.
Write down ten things you could do this week that would create
more happiness in your life with very little effort. Then spend
five minutes each day doing some of these things.
At Resilient Minds we help our clients to develop high resilience
so they can perform at high levels on the really important
things in both their work and personal lives.
Have a great week.
