    The easy way to success

    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. 

    Action Exercise: 

    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.
