Simple Disciplines vs. Simple Errors in Judgement

Simple Disciplines Vs. Simple Errors In Judgement

This is a concept that I was introduced to by the late, great Jim Rohn.
Every day we are either practicing simple disciplines or we are committing simple errors in judgement.

It’s up to us to choose which path we take. After all they’re both simple. . .¬†

It’s just that one will get us where we want to go while the other will keep us where we are.

Where would you rather be?

Simple Disciplines

Have you ever heard the saying “An apple a day keeps the doctor away”?

I’m sure you have.

But what if it were really that easy? Eat an apple every day and you don’t need to go to the doctor.

Well it is that easy. . .

Eating an apple every day helps you to stay healthy.

How hard is it to eat an apple every day? Not very hard. You could even say that it’s simple. . .

You get an apple.
You wash it.
You eat it.

But most of us don’t eat an apple every day. . .

Why not?
Because it’s simple to not eat an apple every day. . .¬†

And at the time it doesn’t seem to make much of a difference. If we do something today or not, we usually don’t notice the effect today.

So we exercise a simple error in judgement instead of a simple discipline. . .

And over time it compounds and it ends up costing us.

Our health.
Our well being.
Sometimes our life.

And the same thing can happen in your network marketing business too.

Simple Errors in Judgement

If you have a network marketing business, let me ask you. . .

Is it easy or hard to contact people and ask them if they’re open to making additional income?

It’s easy. . .

You just pick up the phone and call. Or maybe you ask someone you know that you bump into at a store.

But why do most people not contact prospects and ask if they’re open to making additional income?

Because it’s easy not to. In fact it’s often easier not to contact them. . .

There’s no talking.

There’s no possibility of rejection.

You can always say “I’ll do it tomorrow” and then check you email for the 19th time. . .

But where will that get you? Early retirement? Not likely.

The Choice is Yours

So the choice is all yours. . .

It’s entirely up to you which route you will pick.

Will you live a life of simple disciplines?
Of doing the easy things that will compound over time and make you successful and wealthy?

Or will you choose to repeat simple errors in judgement?
Deciding not to do the easy things and letting those decisions compound over time, leaving you wishing that you had chosen differently?

Because it is entirely up to you. . .

It’s YOUR life. No one else is going to live it for you.

And no one else is going to make those choices for you. . .

The question is what do you want to say when you’re 85 . . . “I’m glad I did” or “I wish I had“?
